— Amanda Seyfried hairstyles
Heyy, sorry about the bad quality haha😂 I’ve found out the place where I’m at doesn’t have wifi but I do have some data so I will still be able to post💞
q | what is your fav Amanda hairstyle?💗
Minor spoiler alert! (honestly what is there to spoil it’s the experience that matters)
Mamma Mia 2 is set 5 years after the events of Mamma Mia with Sophie opening her mother’s villa as a hotel after renovations in her memory while we get a glimpse of Donna’s journey to Greece and her encounters with all three of Sophie’s dads. Of course, there’s plenty of ABBA.
I’ve seen a lot of critics say that this movie wasn’t as good as the first one but honestly as someone who watched both within 24 hours of each other I loved them equally, okay maybe the first one more but the second is amazing.
First, the atmosphere. This movie was as bright and carefree as the first one and in my opinion managed to capture that ‘screw the pg rating’ spirit of Mamma Mia. Sure it’s a little (lot) sadder but there’s still a lot of laughter and dancing and just people being happy.
Second, the cast. My, goodness, where do they find these people? Lily James, Alexa Davis and Jessica Keenan Wynn all look exactly like how Donna, Rosie and Tanya would in their 20s. The men are a different issue that I shall touch on but for now I will say all the cast is amazing and so charming. Also I refuse to believe that this wasn’t shot a month after the first one because Amanda Seyfried has not aged a single day, still looking on point.
Third, the songs. It kind of defines Mamma Mia too, and the way they put in the song somehow all managed to work? Now I’ve seen people complaining about how the grandma Cher thing didn’t make sense and I agree but we all know it was just to include the Fernando song and that just redeems the whole thing for me. I know some of yall might not agree but it’s just so funny that they created two characters purely for this one song is that iconic or what?
As for complaints, I also have three which will be in part 2 cos word limits.
#MammaMiaHereWeGoAgain (2018): 7/10
Amazingly, it has been a full ten years since the release of ‘Mamma Mia’, the film proving a huge success worldwide after years of popularity for its theatre show, which is still incredibly popular even today. The sequel is essentially split into two parts; a present day story involving Sophie, played once again by Amanda Seyfried (‘Mean Girls’, ‘Dear John’) restoring the Villa Donna to its former glory in time for a celebratory party, and a series of flashbacks depicting Donna’s life and her journey to the island in the first place, a story vaguely covered in the first ‘Mamma Mia’.
Lily James (‘Cinderella’, ‘Baby Driver’) does a great job in the lead role as a younger, fresher Donna. She really gives the performance and in particular the dance moves her all, bouncing alongside her “flashback” co-stars Alexa Davies (‘Absolutely Anything’, ‘Harlots’) and Jessica Keenan Wynn (‘The Girl On The Train’, ‘Forever’). Unfortunately the rendition of “Waterloo” does feel a tad uninspiring and awkward largely due to Hugh Skinner’s uncomfortable musical performance. It has to be said though that Cher and Omid Djalili each add something to the film in their respective cameos, Djalili proving fantastically dry and witty.
Like any great musical group, once the best half-dozen songs have been used, the second half-dozen won’t ever be quite as familiar to the casual listener. Yet despite this, there are enough musical numbers to enjoy, concluding with an emotional song and journey to the church on top of the hill. The scene mirroring between the two time frames and the transitioning between scenes should not be ignored either, and is executed brilliantly by Ol Parker. Overall, a great addition to the story and a film that is almost a match for the original.
