This ad has been playing non stop on twitter and every channel my wife seems to be watching.
This Friday, the phenomenon comes exclusively to Disney+. See Hamilton streaming July 3. ⭐️ #Hamilfilm— Disney+ (@disneyplus) June 27, 2020
Full disclosure, I am already curious about all the hype with Hamilton. Feel like it came out and every single person on the planet was losing their collective minds. So since I have to watch this Friday no matter what, I need to know if I’m going to like it. I’ll give you some pros and cons and you tell me if I’m going to like this.
Pro: I love history. Maybe it’s the fact that I’m a dad but I love history. Not the channel, I haven’t graduated to that level yet. I’m sure I’m only like 10-15 years away from that being the only thing I watch.
Con: I hate musicals with too much music. Hate the fact that songs just break out during conversation. I’m trying to follow along, I’m getting invested in all the plot points and out of no where a piano starts playing. Just say it please, don’t sing it.
Pro: These songs slap. I’ve never seen Hamilton but I’ve heard the songs. Roughly a billion times as well. Wife had them on repeat every time we got in the car for about a year. It died down and little bit and then when she got tickets to the show Hamilton and the sisters were back in my life. I’ve never told her this and I hope she never finds out. But these songs do slap.
Con: I don’t know all the words to the said slappers. This may sound like a pro to some but this is a big time con for me. I know I said earlier I hate musicals with too much music. Well I love musicals with the perfect amount of music. And it’s a well known fact that I can put on a show. I’m a natural born performer. Aladdin sound track starts, just get out of the way. Because I gotta keep, one jump ahead of the bread line, one swing ahead of the sword. I steal only what I can’t afford….and that everything.
So me not knowing the words to the songs means I can’t upstage the movie. That is a real big problem for me. I need attention and eyeballs on me at all times.
So there you have it. Pros and cons. So am I going to like it or hate it? Help please
