West Side Story
An adaptation of the 1957 musical, West Side Story
explores forbidden love and the rivalry between the Jets
and the Sharks, two teenage street gangs of different
ethnic backgrounds. Steven Spielberg’s
West Side Story reboot is a vividly dreamed, cunningly
modified and visually staggering revival. No one but
Spielberg could have brought it off, creating a movie in
which Leonard Bernstein’s score and
Stephen Sondheim’s lyrics blaze out with
fierce new clarity.

few ideas from a few movies overall still an
entertaining one to watch. It has a decent mixture of
The Princess Bride, A
Christmas Story and Jingles All The
Way. Still you can overlook those aspect and see a
heart warming story put together here and done very
well. 8-Bit Christmas featuring Neil Patrick
Harris and Winslow Fegley is
streaming with subscription on HBO MAX.
