Im a GLEEK. And i know you are too coz you wouldn’t be here reading this if you’re not in the first place.
In a nutshell, Glee is a scripted series where you’ll see your neighbors’, friends’, enemies’ or your own personality put into a show that defies the idea of entity/culture differences. Black. White. Asian. Latin. Blonde. Fat. Skinny. Sporty. Bullies. Weirdos. Geek. Handicap. Homo.
Lebanese Lesbian. Et Cetera. Name it, they have it all – agreeing, arguing, talking, loving, fighting, singing and whatnots speaking in a language common to us all: MUSIC.
The title promises a concert movie which is based on the show, and the film delivers it. Although with a few shortcoming such as the storyline (I don’t think it existed) and casting (How come substitute teacher Holly Holiday played by Gwyneth Paltrow is on the movie and the main man Coach Will is not?) Plus the disappointing fact that my personal fave Quinn played by Dianne Agron has less exposure throughout the film.
Although some points missing, they made it up for it by including interludes of real life gleeks found after each song, these are the part where it’ll pinch your heart out as they story-tell their own glee-like experiences. This for me made the movie more personal for the audiences.
On top of it, the 3D Dolby audiovisual system did its job right for this musical experiences where you get the feeling that you’re actually at the concert with the best seat in the house.
To wrap it up, I’m giving it a 4 out of 5 for its total awesome package. I believe the movie was made as a souvenir for the gleek bandwagons after a successful season 3 run, or a supplement while we wait for FOX and the rest of the cast of season 4 comes back. If you haven’t seen the movie… don’t be a douche-bag, get on your feet, head on to your nearest 3D cinema and grab your tickets now!
