#SpoilerFreeReview I was wrong edition:
I originally posted, THE GREATEST SHOWMAN is an amazing musical full of magic in search of a worthy movie to support it.”
When I should have posted:
THE GREATEST SHOWMAN is my guilty pleasure best movie of the year. It is dripping with over-romantic gestures, hand clapping/snapping worthy musical numbers and glossy MOULIN ROUGE inspired direction. Upon first viewing it feels distant, but the second time around, it wraps it’s musical hooks in you for #NowPressRepeat viewing/listening sessions.
Long winded way of saying, the audience last night cried, applauded and left the theatre with a smile on their faces, which is more than I can say for THE LAST JEDI.
