    ★★★½

    When a movie does the Guardians of the Galaxy mix tape thing but commits 100% and creates the whole narrative and set pieces around it.

    I need to get me a girl like this, goes out on one date and is totally willing to risk her life and family to be with you on the run forever.

    Moulin Rouge!

    ★★

    I really shouldn't have expected anything else from another Baz Luhrmann film. Chaotic and ugly aesthetic with an awful blend of CGI and green screen, 90s MTV style editing and transitions.

    The well known songs are a big distraction and are really unnaturally fit in, it also makes a really poor job at trying to hybridise a bunch into one song.

    Super lame story with a bunch of those annoyingly contrived sequences of drama, where either characters are acting beyond stupid or there's a big misunderstanding that could be easily explained if people just talked to each other.
