High School Musical 3: Senior Year ★★★

the last time i watched this it was in the theater and i was 10 and i took some NOTES THIS TIME!!!!!!! LOTS TO UNPAACK

gabriella: trooooooyyy
troy: right now i can hardly breathe
gabriella: oooooh, you should’ve done more conditioning

now or never is an underrated BOP let’s fight about it

gabriella’s mom brought her acceptance letter to a post-basketball game party...who is she

zac efron’s singing concentration face gives me so much anxiety

troy’s treehouse has what looks like a vintage ship wheel and a skylight????? so extra

i want a spinoff movie about how troy collects toys like steve carrell in 40 year old virgin

i love all the cutaways to students reacting to sharpay...walking? did they not just see her at school the week before? but still i relate to all of them

rocketman is a lot

everyone in this movie GESTURES on every line and it is excellent

i keep remembering how zac efron is playing ted bundy soon and watching this movie with that in mind is ... strange 

i wonder if chad x his basketball fanfic exists

sorry but...how has troy bolton never heard of julliard?? it’s like...one of the most famous schools...in the country....troy......get ya head in the game

how has no one asked troy about what he wants to do after high school yet? he is a senior in hs and that’s literally all adults want to ask you when you’re a senior in hs

tbt to the first time i saw hsm and thought ryan and sharpay were boyfriend and girlfriend 

they’re gonna love me! i mean...us!

ashley tisdale and lucas grabeel channeling gwen stefani and justin timberlake... iconic

HAIR EXTENSIONS

80% of the budget definitely went to all the crazy set high jinks in i want it all

TAYLOR CARRYING AN UMBRELLA FOR SUN PROTECTION! I C O N

high school musical has 3 types of songs:
1. angsty bops (usually involving zac efron) that sound like the backstreet boys singing about basketball or being confused about the future
2. slow romantic ballads by gabriella (sometimes with troy) about her relationship with him that i usually skip when i listen to the soundtracks
3. showtunes (usually involving sharpay and ryan but sometimes the whole cast) with synchronized dance moves and sometimes insane sets and costumes

there’s definitely rocketman x troy fanfic (update: i was right, and one of them has the phrase "East High orgy of fun" in the description)

umm so chad and troy steal rocketman and deon’s clothes and somehow chad and troy arent the ones who get detention? this school is teaching some weird lessons

??? they are sitting on a hammock having a deep discussion and troy tells gabriella’s mom that they’re doing homework??? bad excuse bud u don’t have a single book or a backpack anywhere nearby

god this movie is the origin of promposals isnt it??? thanks i hate it

FUCKING HELL AFTER ZAC EFRON BURSTS OUT OF THE CHANGING ROOM IN THAT BABY BLUE TUX AND SINGS “TOO TIGHT IT MAKES ME LOOK WEIRD” AND DOES A BUNCH OF ENTHUSIASTIC HIP THRUSTS I HAD TO PAUSE THE MOVIE AND JUST LIKE...TAKE A MOMENT TO RECOVER????

sorry but ryan’s backpack looks like a big ziplock bag

troy stop gripping your pecs

why...why is chad in a clown costume 

i am so confused about why troy’s truck is from like 1965

justin timberlake WISHES he sang the boys are back 

zac efron pls feed me strawberries 

CHAD WOULD GET OVER IT. WOULD YOU?

YAAAAALLLLLLLLLL SCREAM IS T H E BANGER LETS TALK ABOUT IT

u kno he angst when his jeans sag

also scream is v dramatic but it’s also the troy-can’t-pick-a-college song

troy hears voices and hallucinates basketballs falling from the ceiling

drink every time troy does a big hairflip during scream (warning: u will die)

we love a sweaty zac efron

why is ms darbus at school at night just chillin?? proof teachers live at school

ryan and troy are in love btw

troy’s room looks like a pottery barn showroom so i understand why rocketman took a picture of it 

TROY CLIMBING IN A TREE IS SO EXTRA

imagine you’re at your college and u see 2 high schoolers just like...having their prom on the quad with each other

“i feel like i know you on a vibey level” 

i like that the musical is basically just the entire movie in a medley form

EVEN IF WE’RE MILES AND MILES AND MILES APART

the julliard reps are the strangest part of this entire movie

sorry but no audience stands up and cheers or claps during the middle of a song ???? unrealistic

sharpay is that college student who just hangs around her old high school and it’s kinda sad but no one knows how to tell her that it is

sorry but how did troy get into berkeley???? and like...not tell anyone???? UNREALISTIC

i love chad leaving mid performance to go shoot hoops bc he’s mad

WHY DOES TROY GIVE THE GRAD SPEECH

MARTHA IS AN UNDERUSED ICON

SHARPAY IS IN LOVE W GABRIELLA

THE LIL DOG IN A GRAD CAP AND GOWN

BEST MOVIE EVER MADE SORRY
