Why try to remake a classic in an era when such offerings don't make money?
This time with English Subtitles?
Just saw it my 7th time tonight <3
This movie was amazing!! I saw it twice in theaters and will definitely watch it again on streaming!
I hope this film wins Academy award for best picture
I love everything about West Side Story ever since I sang it in my high school choir. The music, the dancing, and especially the socially relevant discussion on race and peace. I'd just especially love how in this remake modern filming technology gave us an immersive audience view of almost 360 degrees.
The add: 😁💃❤️ the movie:🔪🔫😭❤️
& I was almost gonna buy the dvd
the best <3333333
Still see it on the big screen if you can, it is so magnificent. More people should have gone out and seen it!
Hopefully, it's granted a new life on the streaming circuit like Encanto was; it's a truly beautiful film.
Hoping this movie wins some Oscars!
It bombed at the box office. Don’t movie executives see what taste young people have in music today? 50k show up at a rappers concert.
I loved this in the theatre and I'm really looking forward to seeing it again at home!
Such a great movie! Can't wait to rewatch it! Finally
MAGICAL! I LOVE YOU STEVE ❤️❤️❤️
OMG YAYYY IM SO EXCITED XAN'T WAIT TOO SEE
