My Thoughts

The Beauty Inside is a Human Transforming film dealing with a Guy who wakes up every day looking like someone else. The whole concept of the movie is pretty good and the story is also a good view as well. Acting wise, well Hey the Main male lead is only known by Voice when Narrating but the female lead is pretty good.

The story seems like it would end up being what Groundhog Day ends up being but it doesn’t. It was fun seeing this guy wake up as some one new, You see all the cloths he has for different shapes and genders. It doesn’t go deep into that but what it does go into his the love story, That’s what this film is. How he falls in love but has to try to explain his situation and how she has to try and live with loving him when he is someone different every day. At times it makes it look like she is dating every man woman and child on earth. I little twist pops up near the end and what you should be wondering is if he can find his old self.

Overall the film was a good view, I liked the story as its different. The down side I would say is the length of the film, it runs a tad over 2 hours. The film has heart, the romance portions are good, some funny moments and its a film you do think about if you were in his shoes.

With that said I give this film a 4 out of 5 as I found it entertaining and fun even though its more of a Romance love story. Check the trailers and if it peaks interest I say pick it up and put it on your shelf.

Note: I Know my speakers are way outdated. OPPO Blu-Ray Player is one of the best around and used in most home theaters. The Receiver is pretty good but on the line of out dated. Subwoofer is good with tons of bass but not the theater quality from a $400 Sub. Front speakers are fun with tons of power and are good for standalone’s but higher end sound (Hz) is lower quality. Overall I need to update on all speakers granted I do get decent sound out of them just the higher end falls short.


My Setup

By Masked Avenger

CEO/Webmaster of The Name Is James and I love Film ranging from Silent 20's to highly CGI Blockbusters of today. Westerns, Horror, world film, basically anything that peaks my interest I own it But Asian Films are what I Prize the most and Half of My collection Consists of Asian Films. Thanks to the Film 5 Deadly Venoms I Hail From The US, Maryland Is where The Ninja Studies and views the Scrolls of Film That Shine on his 46" Screen. I own a sword, I can do a thousand upside down situps, and I randomly disappear in smoke when I'm not writing movie news and or reviews.
