Thumbs UP!

WOW!! I really don’t know how else to describe it. I had posted yesterday that my husband and I were going to go see “The Greatest Showman”.  I know some of you are waiting to hear what I thought of it, for you were thinking about seeing it. I have one word for you, “GO!”

Don’t wait for it to come out on DVD,  go see it now at the theater if you can.  If it is showing in your area.  My heart was full as I watched it, and I don’t want to give anything away so am not going to go into detail about it.  Its just an amazing movie that  tugged on my heartstrings.

Not everyone will be as touched as I was by some of the parts in the movie.  People find themselves relating to movies based on different things.  With that said, there is a message woven into the story line and the wonderful singing that I feel everyone can be touched by if they really listen.

There are not many movies at all that when the credits roll I don’t get up to leave. This was one of those movies that when the credits rolled no one got up to leave. We were so caught up in the movie, neither my husband or I made a move to leave. We kept holding hands and my husband’s foot was tapping to the music.  I was still full of emotion.

We finally did exit the theater and Brad turned to me and said, “That is one movie that I believe we will need to get on Blu-ray!”  He does not say very often about movies that we see.

I highly encourage you to go see it, support the fact that sometimes Hollywood really can make wonderful movies.

In the words of  P.T. Barnum ” The noblest art is that of making people happy.”  and “No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else!”

To raise your curiosity a little here are a few more quotes from the movie.  You know I love sharing quotes!

“You don’t need everyone to love you, Phin, just a few good people.”

“Hyperbole isn’t the worst crime. men suffer more from imagining too little than too much.”

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down/Gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out/This is brave, this is bruised, this is who I’m meant to be/This is me.  (song lyrics)

You know I want you/It’s not a secret I try to hide/But I can’t have you/We’re bound to break and my hands are tied.(song lyrics)

Is your curiosity aroused? Let me know if you go to see it, would love to hear your thoughts.

  1. Thanks JR for the movie review! I’ve wanted to see it since I saw the first previews. It looks amazing, so I’m glad it it. I’m also a huge High Jackmen fan, not only as Wolverine, but he has an awesome voice and the “Les Miserables” movie he was in a few years back was one of my favorites. It’s not often I see a musical and think the movie is better, but Les Mis I like the movie version best 🙂 I’ll let you know what I think when I go see the Greatest Showmen!
