    I love love love LOOOVE it, between Belle and Moulin Rouge as my 2 top favorites ever, I am in a quandary since each switches place as the best. or my all time most favoritist, but then to really mix me up is Avatar with its real Na’vi tribe person Neytiri with her hugeness and 3 fingered hands and the great love story subplot. Why is it The Hurt Locker won out over Avatar in 2009 as Best Picture, when clearly war movies today are run of the mill plots all being BOOM kill kill boom some more and nothing but depressing stuff touting the American war machine and its Imperialistic hegemonical diabolical rule the world by force mentality? Love and its stories should win out over explosions sometime, I mean, hell, you’ve seen the Green Zone, you’ve seen every terrorism war movie ever.
    As it turns out Belle truly is a ‘chick’ flick, literally, almost, with Dido lead character, a woman in Gugu Mbatha-Raw, movie Director a woman, Amma Asante, movie Writer, a woman, Misan Sagay, and movie Music by, a woman, Rachel Portman. clearly without women doing what and as they do, the world woul;d collapse, and women continue on knowing they’re dumped on, ill treated, disrespected, etc. and here is in Belle what women can do if given opportunity to shine. So, it’s Avatar,no Belle, no Moulin Rouge, no, best is Avatar, and so on, I love all three, and deciding, well, gosh this is so hard, so I’ll just keep watching over and over and love it each time.
