West Side Story

Well I know that I hold a very unpopular opinion on this film. I don’t get why this is a classic. The over the top dancing, singing, and retelling of Romeo and Juliet is just pure torture to me. There is very little about this movie I find appealing. I understand that it takes a lot of talent to pull a film like this off, however to me the film drags, the music is sub par, and I’d much rather watch a theatrical version of Romeo and Juliet than this. If you like musical then I would recommend this film but I won’t be watching it again.

Bottom Line (Warning Contains Spoilers)


This film to me is boring and while I will say it takes a lot of work to make this film it just isn’t great. If I want to see Romeo and Juliet I’d much rather watch a traditional telling of the story. There isn’t anything to spoil because this is a known quantity.
