there is absolutely no way to give a star rating to this most unholy of creations but i'd be lying if i said i didn't have a good time watching it

if nothing else, major props to tom hooper for going all in and refusing to let a drop of irony get onto the screen; if anything, the movie straight up punches you in the face with its total lack of irony, and i respect the hell out of that

it absolutely blows my mind that of the two movies i saw that opened this weekend, i'm pretty sure i had more fun watching this one

(also there were two little british kids sitting next to us who were singing along with every song, which was utterly delightful, and far preferable to the cool nyc assholes on our other side who were performatively cackling through the whole movie)
