Many of my good friends said Bumblebee is great. The media reviews also good. Mostly commented the music, the soundtrack, is very interesting. And it’s true, the first minute the movie startedâthe film is set in 1987âyou’d hear New Kids on the Block. Whoa.
Wait, what?! Screw them. Fuck NKOTB. No, it’s The Smiths. “Bigmouth Strikes Again”, to be precise. Fucking whoa.
For me, it’s such a strong mood booster. Same as youânot you, Fred Durstâwe all love The Smiths. The jangly pop miserabilists. Smiths songs are our loyal friends to get us through every stage of heartbreak.
“Bigmouth” isn’t the only Smiths’ tune in Bumblebee, there’s also “Girlfriend in a Coma”. While Charlie, the main character, wears The Smiths t-shirts most of the times in the filmâtake a look at the poster, too.
Frankly, Mr. Shankly, go see Bumblebee now!
