Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again and My First Time at Vue

I FINALLY got to see Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again after weeks of waiting and I was SO excited after everyone had been hyping it up so much.

I certainly wasn’t disappointed!

Not only that, but it was my first time at a Vue cinema. I frequent Empire and Cineworld and I used to go to Showcase when I was younger very often. But, I’ve never been to Vue. To be honest, it was a lot smaller than the cinemas I am used to. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing though – just cosy. However, the seats were comfy but not the comfiest. The experience itself was fairly cheap: £4.99 for all each of our tickets and I got a ‘snack it’ which consisted of a Tango Ice Blast, some popcorn and a Malteaser bar for about £4-5 (other options were available). I thought this was great because I’m used to paying about £4 for just an Ice Blast in most places.

The film was everything I had hoped for and more and there was high expectations after the first one.

I read somewhere on Twitter that they saved the best til last and trust me, they did. Cher appears and sings not once but twice after a fabulously dramatic entrance. Meryl Streep FINALLY appears and it’s so emotional, I’m not ashamed to say I teared up. However, the whole movie was like that: one minute you’re singing and dancing, then before you know it you’re crying your eyes out.

I think the cast choice was impeccable. The new additions reflected the original cast perfectly and captured all of their mannerisms. It also helped that they had much better singing voices. Not only was their singing amazing, but the soundtrack is just WOW. There’s a lot of Abba classics that you’ll have forgotten you even know. My mum personally loved hearing the start of each song and realising she knew it word for word. I’m not forgetting about the older actors and actresses though. Julie Walters brought the humour as always and I wish Colin Firth was given a bigger role because I do love him. Finally, the outfit choices were fabulous! I want all of Lily James’s attire.

I so so so want to see this film again. Liam’s flight home needs to hurry up so I can watch it with him.

BRB just disappearing off to Greece to live like Donna for the rest of my life.

    FAYE! You left this too long!! Isn’t the movie incredible? Me and my friend from work have decided that our mission is to find clothes that look like Donna’s so we can be as glamorous as her! Also, I think I was the only one obsessed with Young Harry? SO CUTE. I’ve only been to a Vue cinema once, and seem to remember it being nice. But that was about 10 years ago so I can’t really remember! XOX

      Right!? Feels like I waited forever. IT’S SO GOOD. Omg please tell me if you find any, I need all the outfits! Oh wow young harry was SO cute. I think I’ll stick to good old Cineworld and Empire for now xo

    Ha haaa right? 😀 I think Greece island are now packed with Mamma Mia lovers – they sell the life there quite well. 😉
    I really like both Mamma Mias – I am a sucker for an upbeat musical. 😉 I do feel like that the storyline was meh 😀 but I really don’t care – the singing and dancing, and the fake Greece (I somewhere read that they filmed on an island in Croatia! At least some parts.. I hope I am not spreading rumors now. 😀 ) are just great and puts a smile on my face even remembering the movie. 🙂

      I wouldn’t be surprised – they definitely do! Oh me too. Oh really I’ll have to do some research on that. I agree, both movies make me so happy.

    Aaww I am so glad you loved it!! I think everyone is just born with ABBA lyrics in their brains as I found I knew like every word to the songs haha!! I also loved her outfits & definitely want to find somewhere I could get similar ones!!

    I waited for the first Mamma Mia to watch it at home so I could shamelessly sing along, and that’s the plan this time around as well hahaha
