Inspired by "Money money" from "Cabaret" randomly coming on my MP3 player earlier
Rocky Horror and VERY LITTLE else
Dancer In The Dark is about the ONLY one I can stomach.
ALL of them. Well, almost.
The Wizard of Oz is my favourite. Dont like musicals on the whole though, in fact I tend to avoid them at all costs.
You people are all MAD.
With very few exceptions, I hate musicals.
Grease, Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins, Sound of Music and Willy Wonka are ACCEPTABLE... but would be BETTER without the songs
Grease better WITHOUT the songs? Are you MAD?
They arte all AMAZING. Especially Singin In The Rain... and if you haven't seen that, you haven't seen a proper good musical.
Although personally I think The Sound Of Music is a pile of SHITE.
OK maybe not Grease. But definitely the rest
I dont think The sound of Music without songs would erm work but its shit anyway.
And no Somewhere Over The Rainbow?
They can keep the singing in the competition. The rest can go
NO. They can have it playing in the background INSTEAD
Well it did when it was released in South Korea. They released it without any of the songs in it!
Hardly a musical REALLY... :|
You're not a POOF and therefore DON'T UNDERSTAND
Are you calling Ellie a poof?
I bet Sild loves all the Cliff Richard ones
No, I think I'm calling you a LEZZER. Or something
SOUND OF MUSIC
i agree with MISS KATE
Is Willy Wonka a musical? I mean, it has plenty of songs- but a musical as such?
Hmm, I think I actually get along fairly well with musicals. Not as bad as some people... A top 5:
01 The Lion King (cheating, but whatever)
02 Moulin Rouge!
03 The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
04 Le Million
05 Dancer in the Dark
I think Singin' in the Rain is really really good (the title sequence is one of my favourite scenes EVER) but don't really *love* it like so many others do. Meet Me In St. Louis was another kewl MGM musical IMO.
The Umbrellas of Cherbourg is utter RUBBISH. One of the worst thinsg I've ever seen EVER. Fell asleep in the cinema.
To each their own. I thought it was cute, charming and ultimately bittersweet, and Catherine Deneuve was adorable. Took me a while to get used to the style but once I did it was all sweet fun. Nevertheless, I didn't originally think *THAT* much of it after viewing (wouldn't have put it above Le Million, for example), but the more I reflect upon it the higher I think of it.
Adorable? She was a slut! The most detestable character on screen I've seen for ages. She was nothing but a silly little prissy BITCH!
A slut?! That's a bit of a stretch? She got pregnant and married another man. Her mother was the silly little prissy BITCH.
No, she was a stupid 17 year old slut. The father of her baby goes to war and the little Madam marries some old dude and pisses off just because she can't wait for him to return. She leaves, not even informing her b/f's friends and family where she's going. She could have at least told Madelaine and given her a forwarding address. But no, assumed dead boyfriend returns to find his girlfriend and baby have buggered off, aunt dead, mother-in-law dead and he falls apart.
Then at the end you find Catherine Deneuve has left her child with her grandmother and is only popping back to town to pick her up... how long was she gone if she hadn't been back yet her child was just dumped on someone else? BAD MOTHER. SLUT.
Oh, and the music was rubbish.
. I think I almost prefer your reading of the film.
Grease is amazing. As is Grease 2, NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE APPRECIATE GREASE 2!!!!
Moulin Rouge is fantastic! Wizard of Oz is amazing too.
I do love a West End musical too!
in general, musicals make me wince, but as beccy said - it's all about grease and grease 2!
Me too. The whole bursting into song thing for me is just bizarre.
The 70s version is, absolutely...
Grease 2 is totally awful but in a good way, you can't beat a bit of Michelle Pfeiffer singing "Cool rider"
