Popstar: Never Stop Popping, movie review

Okay, so I guess this is mostly on me for not doing a bit more research. I saw the trailer and got excited. The entire movie is filmed like a documentary. I thought the trailer was just using that as a gimmick. I did not expect the entire movie to be like that. I kept waiting for it to stop, thinking this was just how they were going to introduce the characters. But nope, the entire thing was a documentary based on a fictional character that is—based on all the stereotypes of boy-bands and those who break off to do solo stuff.

It was an hour and a half movie that is only funny for a five-minute skit. There wasn’t enough plot to last for a full length film. It felt like a bunch of short skits jumbled together. I wanted to like this movie, I really did. I think it would have been better if it hadn’t stayed in hand-held camera documentary mode for the entire time.

There are a lot of cameos from famous singers, actors, anyone involved in the music industry really. In that regard the movie is enjoyable to watch, just to see who all is going to do a cameo.

The songs are outrageous, just outrageous, which is added upon by having famous singers say praise for the songs, as if they are amazing songs and not just…random words jumbled together.

I did laugh a lot, I’ll admit that, but as a whole… I have a hard time recommending anyone to go see it. Too many sex jokes and not enough plot for me.

Welcome to my blog! I live in Florida with my husband and our Kitty, a rescued Abyssinian. I have several novels published under the name "Nina Schluntz". I’m an avid movie goer, so most of my blog posts will be a review of the most recent movie I happened to see. Sometimes I’ll mix it up and read a book too. Or… my favorite, I’ll see the movie then read the book it was based on! View all posts by mizner13
