A constant stream of powerful, catchy songs all accompanied by fantastic choreography and eye popping visuals. Hugh Jackman is brilliant as showman P T Barnum, as is Zac Efron and everyone else. I really couldn’t find fault with this as far as entertainment value goes. My daughter has been playing the soundtrack and singing the songs ever since we saw the movie and that’s fine by me (for now!). It’s wonderful when a movie comes along with the power to entertain and affect you long after leaving the cinema.
“Once he has discovered something, he wants to be off onto the next thing, rather than spending time and elaborating”
My primary school teacher had me pretty well sussed from a young age when writing this in one of my school reports, but with CineChat I’m determined to change all of that. Even though my movie and TV watchlist continues to grow almost as quickly as my available spare time shrinks, I’m going to ensure I spend time elaborating on each one I do manage to tick off the list!
