I guess 2018 have the colorful and fantastic movies compared to 2017. I started my new year with the most raved film The Greatest Showman, a musical film about P.T Barnum (although there are many fictional characters in the film). It was raved in Twitter and people talked about it like a month? I guess it combine the best things people wanna see in a cinema and in a film, consisting of good dancing and choreography, a very ear-pleasing songs, good showmanship, a linear story-line and diverse themes on poverty, standards, class, love, commercialization, money, strange things, dream, ambition, and broken heart.
I seriously cannot move on from this film so I downloaded all the songs.
I also watched Jumanji. I not have high expectation on this film. To watch this, I have to be in chill and relax,because I don't want to compare it with the old Jumanji by Robin William. The story is straight forward but after I watched the film, I appreciate the acting by Jack Black. He is legend and a amazing actor but I don't know why I just confirm it via this film. Must be an insult heh? Haha..but he can be anything.
I also watched Ready Player One. I watched the trailer online so I can't wait when it is out at the cinema and garnered attention. It's nothing new, the premise is simple, sort of like Avatar-feeling, but in the middle of the film, I kind of excited with the development of every character and the story-line. It combine the online world and reality but I guess in the future, the OASIS-kind of game is accessible to everyone. The similar thing happened now as we want to exit temporarily the reality, we go online for escapism.
Right after Ready Player One, I and husband watched A Quiet Place. This movie also reviewed as among the best and comparable with Don't Breathe. The movie is so quiet that one hall of cinema also being quiet. I and husband even didn't talk for several minutes after we exit from the hall, and we were like "Why we didn't talk? We are not in the Quiet Place.." hahaha
