Some of my reviews are dead serious critiques while others are just for funsies. Hopefully you’ll be entertained either way!
Other than Lea Michele this was super cute. And she was just funny and cringe as expected, so the experience was fully entertaining.
Spring Awakening is one of those shows I’ve kinda made a meme of because of its faults and general preciousness/theatre kid energy but this made me appreciate it more. I mean, I still don’t think it’s great, but it was very revolutionary for its time. (Isn’t that funny to say? It was only a decade ish ago…
-Why should I care about a couple that hardly has any screen-time or chemistry
-Actress playing Emma has a high school level acting style, aka bland, basic, and inauthentic
-Also Emma absolutely needed to go to a plus-sized actress and I’m very disappointed it didn’t
-James Corden is a big no and we all knew that from the minute he spoke his first line
-Colorist as hell tbh, they really made the only POC look white, namely Alyssa
Not amazing but cute. Or rather, cute with some profound stuff sprinkled in. The music was actually pretty terrible. Idk why the entertainment industry seems to think Lin Manuel Miranda is the only competent Latinx composer in existence. His music is only really good when it’s for a project he has complete creative control over.
