It’s been a while everyone. I wish you guys a great year in 2018!
This particular topic comes to mind after I watched The Greatest Showman (2017) earlier this month.
The film is quite awesome by the way. I’m not a fan of the musical genre in general but The Greatest Showman is an exception. The visuals are great, the dance routines are amazing, and the songs are really good. I really like all the songs on this film and that’s definitely saying something about the film. I don’t understand why critics gave this film a rotten rating on rotten tomatoes though. The film may be predictable at one point but it’s enjoyable and beautiful nevertheless.
One of the songs featured in the film titled Rewrite The Stars sang by one and only Zac Efron and Zendaya.
It’s a good song (seriously). But, this song reminds of another song from another film that also used stars as a metaphor. To name a few (these two are my favorite):
“City of Stars” from La La Land (2016)
“Lost Stars” from Begin Again (2013)
What am I trying to say is:
Up until now, I think stars metaphor never fail to make a good song. So, I can’t wait to hear another awesome song with stars metaphor on film in the near future.
Have a good day everyone.
