If you missed it, Sia has a new movie out. It’s called Music and everything is wrong with it.
First of all, it’s a movie about a nonverbal autistic girl, and Sia cast a verbal non-autistic girl to play the part. Then she got mad when people criticized her for that decision, and instead of making a solid movie to back her decision up, she released a movie everyone thinks is worse than Cats.
The movie currently has a 14% rating on Rotten Tomatoes . . . based on 29 reviews. That means that of the 29 reviews they collected, only four were positive. That’s even worse than Cats, which has a 20% rating, based on 323 reviews.
Rotten Tomatoes also collected some quotes from the critics, including one who called it “insulting” and “a disaster on every level,” and another who called it a “jaw-dropping train wreck.”
Another suggested that Sia should, “Leave the director’s chair behind and resume swinging from chandeliers ASAP.”
I’m tempted to watch it just to see how bad it is, but I also have a 5 year old who doesn’t believe in sleep so I don’t really have movie time to waste.
