    Musicals

    what are your favorites? i'm kinda in that mood.

    i've never been that into them, honestly, and i'm not familiar with a lot of the classics. my favorite (if i can call it that) is west side story, though.

    Bjork was amazing though.

    YES. That one definitely stands out. (it's one of my favorite movies)

    --------

    Singin in the Rain is really good.
    Lots of musicals have a few good songs but they're boring otherwise. Examples are Across the Universe, Lagaan, Cabaret, and Chicago-- might just want to watch the individual songs on youtube (imo).

    I'm not into stage musicals but I'm borderline obsessed with Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

    Glimpses do ye seem to see of that mortally intolerable truth; that all deep, earnest thinking is but the intrepid effort of the soul to keep the open independence of her sea; while the wildest winds of heaven and earth conspire to cast her on the treacherous, slavish shore?

    I give Peter bradshaw 2 thumbs down.

    What also comes to mind, mary poppins, singing in the rain, victor victoria, the rocky horror picture show, moulin rouge.

    I'm suspicious of people who say they'll die for a flag but won't wear a mask for their neighbor.

    I was more into them when I was a kid. Favorite was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I liked Oliver!, Annie, and Newsies.

    I haven't taken in many.

    Evita was my introduction to live musicals and the Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber. The thematic melody still sounds in my mind when thinking about it.

    Phantom because I dated a couple of insatiable fans in the past.

    Billy Elliot because it was a cute little movie, before the stage, with a theme near & dear.

    La boheme for the passion & drama.

    I admit that I think Les Mesirables is pretty damn good, well, except for Russell Crowe's singing in the movie version. I even like the way the "villain" of the whole thing is characterized.... he sticks by his own code, in the end.

    The Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band movie is enjoyable because it's a massive train wreck (and I like the Beatles).
