Lion King, The (2019)
Its paced like a cartoon which kills the organic emotional impact because it seems rushed.
The score swelled and stomped on all the sentiments the story was setting. It's hard to feel something when it's already been decided for you.
The baby voices were stronger than their mature counterparts.
The soundtrack sparkled with new modulations.
It's a retread with no originality injected... wrapped in a gorgeous package. 29-Feb-2020
Little Mermaid Live, The (2019)
The detail I most remember from "The Little Mermaid," was how her hair moved. If you can't establish an artistic craft to convey that, the art is lost. She flew when she needed to swim.
My treasure list:
I haven't seen so much visible invisible wire since "I Love Lucy." Decorating them might have helped
The octaves were lower than the crowd cheer. Amplification was a problem
A hologram of the improbable fish might have sufficed instead of plastic muppets
Graham Philips proved a singing alpha as Auli'i Cravalho expressed hard work
John Stamos' cook was destined to fail even if he had done it in a thong
Shaggy was feeling the beat but something spooked him and he started whispering
You shouldn't stumble. Even a shark shows grace underwater
Having the cartoon enact emotions whilst the live mostly sang is lazy
The deed was cast. The commercial for a beloved classic was born because they knew that after this, we'd flee to the original material. Magic! 08-Nov-2019
Mary Poppins Returns (2018)
I had to quit. Just when I was getting accustomed to the hyper tension, they sang. 25-Sep-2019
Gorgeous ladies...and men, musical zest, smashing show and a hopeful ending. It broke it and healed it...the heart. 28-Aug-2019
"The Man That Got Away." Judy defined it and Billy spelled it out. 25-Aug-2019
It gave us a vogue teaser, it made gold edible and the love story was sexy. 23-Aug-2019
Ryan's episode didn't hand me an enigmatic vogue but it gave me beauty of soul. 23-Aug-2019
Do I have to vogue to earn a gay family like this or is that sentiment stuck in the past? The show retains its high sheen fabulosity but ballroom direction needs to stress its entertainment notch in order to fly closer to Billy Porter's coordination. 21-Jul-2019
The release was due to its faithful history and devotedly charged performances. 10-Jul-2018
Every week it grows in beauty and endearment. One more moon and Papa Murph makes me blow.
Christopher Meloni is now inducted into Daddy Squish Hall of Fame. 03-Jul-2018
It's about family. 27-Jun-2018
Ryan is tapping into the artistic awakening of its raw talent. Learning as they go. 24-Jun-2018
The seed has been planted but in order for it to grow it needs to escalate the celebration. 23-Jun-2018
There are tidbits I didn't know. Child genius, warped sensibilities and family hypocrisy. The catalog is immense as is the concept of each song. Many odes to so many things only we can remember. The razzle dazzle is there, the actor siphons the legend's anger and the music remains inspired. A life worth celebrating. 05-Jul-2019
What's Love Got To Do With It (1993)
You can clip a bird's wings but it's still going to sing. Fishburne spars rhythmically while Bassett adds muscle to the act. Her lip sync is athletic. 19-Jun-2019
Calamity Jane (1953)
The tunes are zippy, the production is cartoony and energized but the whole is detached from reality. It's overcompensating for a loss. 18-Jun-2019
Lilo & Stitch (2002)
A little off-kilter, one of a kind and a charming diversion. 07-Jun-2019
I Love Melvin (1953)
A bubblegum dream and a hoofer's delight. Debbie Reynolds' football dance is incredulous arduous training and Donald O'Connor is a foot master. 05-Apr-2019
Princess And The Frog, The (2009)
It's a sumptuous celebration of black heritage in animation. When the frogs are introduced it hazes the celebration. It becomes more about frogs and less about culture. 21-Mar-2019
Grammy Awards (2019)
We are due the respect to work hard and earn one. That's how equality starts. 07-Feb-2019
The moment you were bullied into inclusion over quality, you became as relevant as the $10.00 award MJ was inanely granted for being the King of Pop. If you keep awarding an industry that supports abuse and is devoid of any artistic merit you will keep losing our respect.
I'm not sitting through a Grammy Handmaid's Tale Part 2. I'm not that gay. 06-Feb-2019
RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars (2018-)
Everything Judy was gold. Ru and Co. leveled me out. 02-Feb-2019
I woke up to frills and glitter in my mouth and I liked it. 18-Jan-2019
It took two drag artists to resurrect the power of Aretha and to tribute her lovingly. 13-Jan-2019
They rang my bells. 15-Dec-2018
Finale. Ru made her girls work for a music video and they delivered. It was joyous. The eliminated returned and stabbed the competition in the eye. They chose friendships and favors over hard work. Shangela got ousted from energizing the finale because she already had a big fan base which means the last lip synch didn't register and the second runner up won the title. Foul. 16-Mar-2018
Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve (2018)
Gripping tightly to something that passed. 01-Jan-2019
Naughty or Nice (1939)
A gifted songwriter can only love when he's drunk. The maid is named Killer and the actors add snap to their wit. It's gay vintage. 29-Dec-2018
Jerry Lewis Show, The (1963)
I wanted to assess my child adoration for this man's art. As an adult my lack of patience warns me that he borrowed faces from the mentally hurt to shine a light on their hilarity. It feels wrong. 19-Dec-2018
