  • Bill Thompson's rating of the film Newsies

    I'm instantly put off by any movie that paints New York as the mecca of the universe where everything happens. Sorry, I don't like New York, I much prefer Chicago, sue me. Personal bias aside, the beginnings of High School Musical are here, but much more stagy. That was my biggest barrier to liking Newsies, I can see what Kenny Ortega was going for, but he doesn't quite get there until years later...
