    The Greatest Showman

    ★★★

    So this movie features a snobby, bispecticaled critic named Bennett who unequivocally hates the show enjoyed by the common folk and yet loves the "classy" shows of the theater. He serves as the antagonist for most of the film.

    Light to Decent 9 out of 10.
