dex did it.
he really, fucking did it.
bravo my friend.
also, taron egerton is a fucking revelation and throroughly deserves the oscar for his spellbounding, transcending performance.
every musical number he was in were absolutely magical, lifted by egertons' energy and charisma and the stunning choreography, down to a T he was flawless and gives Rami a long, hard run for his money.
i can't believe THIS is what Bo Rhap could have been, but i must say this was the better film on all aspects, and yes I am eating my words but I knew this was gonna be good, but not THIS GOOD.
also, i WAS NOT EXPECTING IT TO FEEL LIKE MAMMA MIA AT ALL, BUT I WAS THERE FOR IT AND I ADORED IT FROM THE FIRST MOMENT TO THE UPLIFTING END.
