ABBA was in my top 3 most listened to artists on last.fm so I just had to check this out. The songs of course are nothing but bangers, but I’m still not sure how I feel about musicals. I don’t really know what to do with myself while I’m sitting there and Pierce Brosnan is trying his best to hold a note but he lets out a Bruce Springsteen yell instead. Still good cheesy fun though!
This was okay. I honestly thought I would either like it much more or hate it entirely, but it fell somewhere in the middle. The first half of the movie had a bit of a rough start and I felt like I was being cinematically waterboarded into Baz Luhrmann‘s eccentric style. After not being able to finish Romeo + Juliet, I feared this would have the same fate, but eventually I settled into the sensationalistic approach and just rode it…
