tick, tick...BOOM! ★★★★

Hey, what a way to spend the day

a celebration of friendship

as much as I despise Lin Manuel at least Andrew Garfield is outstanding and gives a performance full of love, gratitude, and excitement that made me so happy

I know people hate movie musicals. I’m not a fan of most of ‘em. The auto-tune here takes me out, and some of the numbers feel overdone, but there are just so many beautiful moments I can’t pretend they don’t make me happy

I love to say that there’s nothing in this world I’d rather do than be a performer. that I’ll be able to do this for two decades, not get a single speaking role, and be so goddamn happy about it. but how can I possibly understand what’s it like to go 10, 15 years in the business without getting anywhere, and still being told you have to just go on to the next one. I hope I’ll have the bravery that Jon Larson had. that’s why this movie doesn’t make me angry. any of the stylistic choices on the directing end I didn’t like was made up for by a story that is filled with compassion and admiration for such an important artist. tell someone you love them today
