Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again ★★★★

small brain: the mamma mia movies are bad
normal brain: the mamma mia movies are fun lighthearted guilty pleasure movies filled with catchy musical numbers
exploding brain: the mamma mia movies celebrate love as not just a feeling but as a practice and a way of life. it’s a world where people care unabashedly for their friends, family, and lovers, and their emotions don’t go unacknowledged. such cheesiness is almost radical when so many other movies choose gritty “realism” (cynicism). furthermore,  mamma mia is an ode to the profound and sacred connection that exists between mothers and daughters - and the second films use of parallels and time structure reminds us that such a relationship unites us across history. i would go so far as to suggest that the mamma mia movies portray not a patriarchal but matriarchal society, one where women are completely free.
galaxy brain: hehe lily james hot :-)
