    "This is an eye-opener for me as I get to see what James Brown's life was that revealed more about him and the music he made. Chadwick Boseman was even great in his portrayal of Brown. Two thumbs up to him! "


Did you know that Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' Stadium Tour earned $345.7 million in ticket sales? The 2018 tour was so big that Netflix put it straight to its content. Taylor Swift began the new year in 2019 with that concert documentary on Netflix. Because of ticket prices and geography, many fans were unable to attend the tour. It visited only five countries outside the US. Netflix's partnership with Taylor Swift is unrivaled in its ability to bring the tour to a global audience. What Netflix shows here is not the typical movie about pop stars or movies about singers. It actually shows the actual performance while lowering the barrier to entry. This makes Swift's latest live performances accessible to anyone with an internet connection.

The documentary was shot on the final night of the 'Reputation' U.S. tour in front of 60,000 Dallas fans. Aside from a few backstage shots after the credits, the documentary doesn't reveal much about Swift's life outside of music. Despite this, many claim that it is the best documentation seen yet of the pop spectacle that Taylor Swift has created. This initiative of Netflix to produce a concert documentary is seen as a revolution for on-demand content. Outside of productions like this, there are also those traditional biopics or movies about musicians. The critically-acclaimed Bohemian Rhapsody is a recent example. Even if people can't cant catch the movie in theaters, there are a lot of alternatives. There are different platforms where to watch Bohemian Rhapsody online for everyone to enjoy.

    "I loved every minute of this film because it has explained what Kurt Cobain went through. Anyone who does not think it is great is blind to see how great it was. "
