    Actually so freakin boring.
    When I saw the trailer for this I thought, "Woahhh! Free 1000$+ dollar concert, don't mind if I do." Then I went to the movie theater and I went to see it. And when I say it was boring, it's not an over exaggeration. In fact, I think it was more than boring. I mean, to sit there for a flippin 3 HOURS is just crazy. You're probably like, "Well you could've just left!" NOPE. I had to sit there because I was with there with other friends who thought the movie was just great! Such a bad move on my part for paying for this and not even doing the correct amount of research before seeing it. Now, this movie is long gone for theatre's now, but looking back, it was just so horrible. For others it may be amazing, but I kinda just regret going. SO BORINGGG! 😭😭

    A Captivating Journey Through Music and Emotion
    The concert film was simply perfect, a highly immersive experience. And what an extraordinary singer! Deep lyrics, beautiful voice, fantastic visual effects, great dancers, great band, wonderful stage, and everything just perfect. I couldn't take my eyes off the screen for a minute, an experience far beyond a simple concert film. The transition of each "era" of her career makes everything very original and incredible. Taylor Swift is certainly one of the greatest singers of today and the best songwriter since The Beatles. It brings tears to my eyes, evokes very strong emotions. Everyone should see it someday.

    Outstanding Concert That Translates Perfectly to the Screen
    I first started to notice Taylor Swift back when Red was doing the rounds. I appreciated a few of the singles but didn't think too much beyond that. But I really started to pay attention with her following album, 1989. That's when my passing interest became a little more prominent.

    The release of Folklore and her now infamous re-recordings (or Taylor's Versions) piqued my interest yet again and solidified me being a dedicated fan. The hype, hysteria and event-level mayhem that surrounded the now record-breaking Eras Tour only reinforced my admiration of Taylor and her music.

    In fact, as of writing, the tour has currently grossed over a billion dollars, and when it resumes next month, it's predicted to surpass two billion. That's more than double the previous record-holding concert. And this movie version of the tour that I'm reviewing here also broke records, becoming by far the biggest concert movie of all time. Second place isn't even close.

    It's safe to say then that Taylor Swift is the biggest recording artist of the moment, and is well on her way to the very upper ranks. It's a list that includes the likes of The Beatles, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson. The Eras Tour really does feel like a historical moment, something those lucky enough to have seen it can look back on in years to come and declare proudly that "I was there!" I'm sure those who went to Jackson's Bad World Tour in the late 80s can fully relate.

    One thing that's evident from this tour is how it seems to have made almost everyone, from long-time fans, newcomers and even naysayers, realise just how diverse, eclectic and solid Taylor's back catalogue is. I've sat back and watched as the conversations around her have shifted to almost unanimously glowing across the board, and I believe this tour is mostly responsible for that change in narrative. It's the culmination and framing of her respective 'Eras' that's truly the selling point here. The concept and ultimate execution was bold, daring and filled with risks, but the payoff is nothing short of genius.

    Everything really is stunning to behold. The staging is at times jaw-dropping, and the camera work really captures it beautifully. The costumes are outstanding too. But of course it's Taylor's effervescent charm and command of the stage that steals the show. She has a way of holding your attention, even during the more subdued songs. Her vocals are also sublime. I'd argue this the best she's ever sounded, so confident and full of energy.

    Taylor Swift is riding a career high right now, and just whether she'll be able to maintain this momentum is anybody's guess. We've all assumed she had reached her peak, and then she proves everybody wrong. But ultimately it doesn't matter. The Eras Tour is quite the achievement, a career cornerstone... and a moment in history.
