This week, let’s talk about how movie musicals–even when panned by the critics–will always make me happy. This Monday, I was having a DAY. And there was so much on my plate that if I lifted it, it would have cracked in half. AND the Union Station Starbucks was closed. And I had to run home and take a test on Microsoft Powerpoint. But during that test, to occupy my brain space, I turned on the movie The Greatest Showman, and I was reminded that even when life is hard, or stress-y, there are always movie musicals.
The Greatest Showman was so compelling that I saw it twice in theatres. It doesn’t hold a CANDLE though, to the movie I had on while finishing cooking at 10pm on Monday, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, which I saw in theatres FIVE times. In my defense, it was the summer I was home right after college, and it was the summer of Movie Pass.
And so, I challenge you, when feeling stressed, to watch one of these two movies, and I DARE YOU NOT TO SING ALONG.
you’re welcome. that’s what’s making me happy.
