I watched The Phantom of the Opera a while ago and to be honest, I barely remember anything about it. I remember the signature songs. I remember that I liked it. I also remember Sierra Boggess was amazing. I don’t remember much else. That’s why when this version of the show was released for free on Youtube, I decided to give it a watch. I found this show much more memorable than the other version I watched, largely because this was deliberately recorded version and the better camera angles and zoom ins really help. Watching a show in a theater means you can’t zoom in and see the actors expressions as well.

Aladdin is the latest Disney classic to be remade into a live action film. It’s all right, but I still hate these live action films because of how transparent they are at being cash grabs. I do understand that as long as audiences continue to throw money at these live action remakes, Disney will keep making them.

No matter what Frozen 2 was going to be about, it was clear that it was going to be a massive success. Frozen 2 is a good children’s movie. It just doesn’t have any of the complexity or depth of emotion as in movies like Up, Coco, How to Train Your Dragon, and even Zootopia.

The Steven Universe movie aired on Cartoon Network a while back and it was a musical. This is unsurprising given the show runner’s penchant for music and it was welcome given how much enjoyable music was laced throughout the show.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a musical and a comedy about a spelling bee. I think the most distinctive and appealing part of this show is not just the humor, but the substantial amount of improvisation and audience participation.
