While I liked most of the songs, the way the big musical sequences are shot like a bad Old Navy commercial is really annoying and plays off like a cheap modernized Busby Berkeley film. This is also way too long. Besides that although the film could be more diverse I do appreciate the representation presented here.

Love the music, the setting, the production design...Lin Manuel Miranda is a certified genius. Some story points I wasnt a fan of, which apparently it covered better in the stage show, so maybe I'll give that a watch next :)

This film is an absolute blast and goes to show how well an idea can come when everyone working on it is proud of the product and excited to complete it. The star-studded cast of this film all have amazing performances, some of my favorites were Anthony Ramos, Melissa Barrera, Olga Merediz, and the fun cameo style role taken on by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Speaking of Lin-Manuel, the music in this film is awesome in every sense. The emotions are always felt whether it be joy, excitement, grief, or even confusion. This is another home run in his career and I hope to see more like this and Hamilton (2020) which has a very similar feel. I wasn’t expecting the story to impact me so much. The love showcased on screen made me think of those in my life whom I love and everything I’d do for them. The grief when friends and family are lost broke my heart and made me feel for each and every character. And everyone following their own dreams; to me, that reminded me of me and my friends graduating high school and leaving for to different schools and careers (the same that I know will happen when I graduate college in a few years). I hope to watch this one again very soon as it’s one of the best 2021 releases that I’ve seen so far.

I think I'm the only person who didn't really rate this! Some of the songs were great, but the bits inbetween not so much. And it was about 45 minutes too long too
