    Clearly you did not understand the subtext of this movie. It is clearly meant to be the first in the line of wolverine origins movies. He even forms a group of X men.

    I don’t care what critics say or how untrue it is. Both high school musical and Annie have RT scores in the 50s like this. It will be a classic.

    Btw: Zendaya actually did all her trapeze stunts. They did not use any body dubbles for her scenes.
    Other than that, although I trully loved the movies, this video was great xD

    This is how I felt about The Greatest Showman: Ok, so before I saw this movie all of my friends were talking about it and around me it was kinda overhyped. So, when I went into the theatre I sat down with my popcorn and my soda and I was 100% ready to see this amazing movie I had been waiting for. And you know what I got? A salad. A salad you may ask? This is what I mean by this: I was prepared for a three course meal that everyone was saying was amazing, but I only got one course, which was the little salad and maybe an iced tea. I mean, a salad isn't bad, but it isn't an AMAZING three course meal that I thought I would get. I mean I was ready for the steak and mashed potatoes, and the big slice of chocolate cake, but I only got a light salad. So was it terrible? No. But it wasn't a movie that grabbed me into the story like three course meal movies do. Ok sry about this prbly no one is seeing this comment or cares about my dumb opinion lol

  • Fancy Ninja

    Whoa, whoa, whoa...so this a musical about a guy from the past who grew up and wanted to make something of himself, so he grows up, takes every chance he can get, acheives his dream only to be brought down by an affair.

    • Fancy Ninja
      Fancy Ninja 12 days ago

      I mean that doesn't sound very entertaining.

    • John Casteele
      John Casteele 12 days ago

      As to that point, he didn't actually have an affair. He became obsessed with the fame that the singer was bringing him, ignoring his family and other work. In the film the singer fell for him but was rejected; to get even, she kissed him right before a picture was taken of them so that the papers would run a story on the affair.

    Giving Jenny Lind a song called Never Enough is especially galling since she donated all of her profits from that tour to charity in real life. Just saying.

    This computer generated fluffy singing thing was fabulous, but I feel like I don’t need to see it now because I’ve seen most of the good stuff in this trailer.

  • Gary Pierce
    Gary Pierce 23 days ago

    I saw a movie when I was a kid where the train hauling the circus crashed and they needed a rare type of blood to save someone , B negative or something, that only the mean character had. He volunteered his blood to save the person and I was pretty choked up about that turn of events, of course I was only about seven.
    Still, a pretty good movie.Way to go, Badguy!!!
