    What an unexpected treat! I thought  it was gonna be predictable and maybe some of the relationships are, along with the body-shaming, and I was wrong. The plot line is gorgeous and I ended up caring deeply for  PBNJ.

    The word “Epic” was created just for this movie.

    ★★★★

    It is unexpectedly a Marvel movie for Spider-man. Not a tangential Avengers film, glamorizing and yet minimizing the main character. This is all Spider-man. What a relief.

    ★★★★½

    Pasek and Paul wrote  brilliant music for this creative and divergent look at P. T. Barnum’s life and the start of his circus. Even someone who only marginally enjoys musicals will be pleased with the cinematography, story, and terrific choreography. Bloody great movie.


    BONUS: Hugh Jackman throttled back on his wide warble of a vibrato, thank god, and his songs were significantly better for it.
