The soundtrack will be released on June 11th (the same day as the movie). Although you can pre-order it beginning this Friday, which will be accompanied by the title number, ‘In the Heights’.

Here’s what I have to say I liked it a lot. It’s a really fun time and I can’t wait to see it in a theater (especially since I’m fully vaccinated). But I don’t think that people who aren’t into musicals are gonna be quite as enthusiastic about it. It’s not a La La Land where most people in general can love it whether they’re into musicals or not, it really does appeal primarily to people who are either fans of the musical, fans of Broadway, fans of LMM, or fans of musicals in general. It’ll do really well at the box office, it’s a crowdpleaser, and people will talk about it at the end of the year, but I don’t think it’ll quite make it to Best Picture unless it’s talked about in a similar way to how Black Panther was talked about. Could definitely land Production Design, Song, and Sound tho, maybe even Cinematography if it lands at ASC
The fact that you say it’s not LaLaLand is such a motivating factor for me 💚April 21, 2021 at 10:04 am #1204213054
This ages like milk. BTW, I thought the same too, but now I’m so glad to be proven wrong. I hope the hype will continue until the Oscar season.
Well, there are coming some voices of opposition in recent days and the Letterboxd ratings, although fine, aren’t great. The last time I checked, In the Heights has similar numbers like “The Prom”. Also, there is a controversy about cutting relevant story of the play.
I don’t think it will be a huge flop, but I wonder if that early hype was a mirage like happened with Mary Poppins Returns.April 21, 2021 at 10:14 am #1204213102
I honestly loved the movie, I only see it possibly for production design and original song. But nothing other than that. It’ll be a big globes thing I think though.

Professional critics are starting to chime in with their reviews of In the Heights. Now I’m not someone who lets his interest in a certain movie live or die by Rotten Tomatoes. The most that website really does is let people know what to expect from the film whether they end up seeing it or not. However, at just 42 reviews so far, In the Heights currently sits at a 98% critical rating.

This has the potential to be a populist favorite going into awards season (if it can maintain the momentum).
I love indie movies but I’ve missed big budget blockbusters! This looks immaculateMay 21, 2021 at 1:56 pm #1204265267
I am excited for this one.
The trailer reminds me of L LA Land and West Side Story.May 21, 2021 at 1:56 pm #1204265270

I don’t believe this myth that even people who don’t normally like musicals loved La La Land. Nobody I have spoken to on the subject hasn’t been searching for what the fuss was all about?

As as musical La La Land is below meh. As a romance/character drama it feels underdeveloped. It has a few highlight scenes and a charming enough performance from Emma. Ryan’s performance and character though was a mess. One of those movies where I just don’t get the love. Even when I don’t feel the same way, I tend to at least “get it”. I don’t get it with that one. But that’s a tired debate.May 21, 2021 at 5:43 pm #1204265507

A little bit of Magic never hurt anybody.
