Barbara Walters stated it best: “Taylor Swift is the music industry,” and wow, was she right! My love for Taylor Swift dates back to my primary school days, and it can be confirmed by looking through countless videos of me singing tunes at the 1989 concert. Fast forward to the Eras tour, and my love for her and her music reached peak levels. I was determined to see the tour, until the ticket prices hit the stratosphere, with some going for a staggering $6,000! Destiny intervened just as I was about to resign myself to a Taylor-less fate. On October 13, 2023, just two weeks shy of the highly awaited re-recorded version of 1989 (Taylor’s Version), the Era’s tour movie hit theaters, offering a more wallet-friendly option for fans everywhere. Now, let’s dive into my review of Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour Movie:

The concert movie kicks off with different songs, echoing the sentiment, “It’s been a long time coming.” The beat drops, and we’re thrust into the infectious rhythms of “Miss Americana & the Heartbreaker Prince” and “Cruel Summer.” The camera pans across a sea of ecstatic fans, some shedding tears, others screaming in sheer joy—all united in their adoration for the songstress. The crowd, decked out in outfits inspired by Swift’s songs and adorned with friendship bracelets, is a spectacle in itself. Swift kicks off with the Lover era, seamlessly transitioning into the Fearless era. Nostalgia washed over me as she sang timeless hits like “You Belong with Me” and “Love Story.” Witnessing these performances live is like a trip down memory lane, rekindling that childhood excitement.

Taylor Swift’s performance of her “COVID” albums, Folklore and Evermore is exceptional. Standouts include the emotionally charged “champagne problems” (co-written with ex-boyfriend Joe Alwyn) on a moss-covered piano, accompanied by a gorgeous dress, and the acoustic rendition of “Betty” within the rustic Folklore cabin.

Tears welled in my eyes on the verge of an emotional breakdown as Taylor Swift sang songs from the Red Album, particularly “All Too Well: 10 Minute Version” and “You’re on Your Own Kid” from the Midnights album. Aside from those two songs, my favorite performance by far has to be “Enchanted,” delivered in the most gorgeous purple dress.

In the grand symphony that is Taylor Swift’s career, the Eras Tour Movie is a beautifully orchestrated movement, a celebration of the past, and a glimpse into the magic that lies ahead.
So, as Taylor would say, “Are you ready for it?” Grab your popcorn, relive the eras, and let the enchantment of Taylor Swift sweep you away!
