I love Glee, I love Lea Michele, so the Glee movie was definitely put on my list of must see films. My partner and I have been having withdrawals since the end of season 2, so this was the perfect filler in for the time being.
There's lots of things wrong with this movie, for starters it is much too short, I was devastated when it all if a sudden ended, secondly I thought the stories in between each song were unnecessary and boring, and finally the fact that not all the cast get a chance to sing a solo is also disappointing, but obviously the producers have to cater to a lot of fans and they try to give each cast member a little bit of screen time, I somehow have a feeling that Blaine and Britney are the favorites as they are the ones who get the most screen time, however disappointing this was it's all worth it when mighty Rachel Berry graces the screen, Lea Michele is a born performer and she knows how to give an audience what they pay for, her songs are by far the most well performed.
It was also nice to see Dianna Agron on a big screen, out of the entire cast I think she is one of the only ones who will have a sustained career once the show finishes.
I'm surprised that this movie is such a box office flop, considering what a juggernaut Glee is it's just plain weird to see it failing the way it is. I went to a 3pm session on a Monday at a very popular cinema in Sydney and me and my partner had the entire theatre to ourselves, not one other person was in the cinema. So we basically had our own private screening, we just got into it though,we had a bit of a sing and dance.
Another thing I will point out is I think the use of 3d worked very well, this is probably the first movie I've seen where the 3d was good and not just blurry, and the surprise cameo by Gwyneth is excellent.
So yeah, Just go with it, there's a lot if fun to be had if you just take it for what it is. Long Live Rachel Berry!!!!!!
