‘Beastly’ Available On DVD June 28

Beastly, a fantasy teen-drama take on the “Beauty and the Beast” story comes to DVD tomorrow, June 28. Alex Pettyfer is the shallow looker who needs a lesson in humility. Mary-Kate Olson is the witch who casts the spell of modest appearance. And Vanessa Hudgens is the reason for it all.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
