Happy February everyone!
On Wednesday this week my friends and I went to see the Greatest Showman at the cinema. I hadn’t watched the trailer and didn’t have a clue what it was about apart from the fact it was a musical and that everybody else was saying it was amazing! And it was!
I don’t usually get that into films. I enjoy watching them but my attention is else where most of the time. However, with this film I was so focused on what was going on right from the start. I felt overly emotional from the beginning and thats not like me honesty. I also like how its not too long. It hasn’t be dragged out it’s very to the point and i feel like thats important because sometimes films are so long and it just get boring.
I felt like the start of the film happened very quickly and at the time I felt like it was a bit ridiculous. However, I didn’t know what the film was about going in so I think that played a big part as to why I thought that. My opinions on musicals haven’t always been positive. I couldn’t even get past the beginning of La La Land. However, the music in the film was so great! There isn’t one song in it that was boring or too long. They were all great! I think my favourite would have to be ‘A million dreams’.
It wasn’t just the story line that I loved though. The characters and their actors were amazing too. When I heard Zack Efron was in it, I was quite surprised because I imagined it it be different to the other films he’s been in. And it is, except he plays the role so well. They all do! Especially Hugh Jackman. But then when does he ever let you down. Zendaya looks beautiful throughout the film with her glitteryoutfits I love them so much and it makes me want to be a trapeze artist. I was also so impressed with the two little girls that played Hugh Jackman’s children. Their singing and dancing was so good especially for how young they looked.
But anyway, if you haven’t seen the film you should go. Now. Because its so amazing i’m actually obsessed. I don’t think anything I can say would justify how good it actually is! So just go watch it…
