MOVIE REVIEW: DREAMGIRLS (Bill Condon, 2006)

EAAD5D38-15BE-4861-B8E3-84977B280E84

Favorite part ko nung sinabihan si Effie (Jennifer Hudson) ni Curtis (Jamie Foxx) na wala siyang star quality unlike Deena (Beyonce, as a second-rate singer nyahahaha!) tapos ang tanong niya: “Am I not enough? May kulang ba sa akin? May mali ba sa akin? Pangit ba ako? Pangit ba ang katawan ko? Kapalit-palit ba ako?”

Pero halimaw talaga si J.Hud kapag kumakanta, no? Parang nagiging ibang tao na makakalimutan mo na natalo niya for acting sina Adriana Barraza for Babel at Cate Blanchett for Notes on a Scandal sa Oscars that year. Yung mapapaniwala ka talaga sa sumpa niya na, “You’re gonna love me”.

Grabe din ang choreography ng mga musical numbers dito, lalo na yung mga swaying arm movements at dramatic poses. Papasok ka na straight sa sinehan tapos after ng Move, Dreamgirls Theme, at One Night Only, lalabas ka na ready sumalang sa RuPaul’s Drag Race.
