OJ's Movie Review - One Direction: This Is Us

Wait, I'm actually reviewing this??

So yes, I watched One Direction's biographical/concert movie. Wasn't planned at all, a spur of the moment thing that wasn't my idea. Anyway originally I thought I wouldn't like this movie and would find it boring because I'm not a fan of One Direction at all because they are very generic and the celebrity gossip side can be annoying. But then I watched a review of it and it peeked my interest. After watching This Is Us I've noticed that they didn't make the group out to be perfect people who are easy going; One Direction do really act like a bunch of teenagers - they literally don't do much at all, they don't write the songs, pick the tour venues or anything. So in that way it shows they're not responsible for a lot of things their disliked for such as copying other people's songs or doing things past boy bands did - that's all down to Simon Cowell. It also shows the strain of being that famous such as the sudden change of life for them and their families had. So the documentary side of it was quite interesting. The movie side of the production (which was basically the concerts) were also quite entertaining, if you do go watch this then definitely go in 3D, this movie has excellent 3D effects, they did that really well, some of the things they did to amplify the 3D was quite clever as well. The bad points about the film is that some parts can be very cheesy such as getting a neuroscientist to explain the effects of 1D on fans; also Harry Styles got a bit annoying constantly going shirtless every time the camera was on. So all in all it was interesting to watch and the pranks at the end were entertaining but I still find them to be a very generic boy band and probably wont watch this movie again ever but for for my only viewing IT WAS OK+.
