How about Muppets Christmas Carol? Possibly my favourite film!


How on earth did I forget this!?  One of my favourites too - watch it every Christmas without fail.

I just read this on the BBC: X-Men star Hugh Jackman is to perform a one-man Broadway show, singing songs from musicals with the backing of an 18-piece orchestra. That man is just too cool for school.

Ah, I remember the fan boy wrath when stage "Oklahoma" singer Hugh Jackman was cast as Wolverine.

I'm not a big fan of musicals.  Moulin Rouge! being an exception.  And I can tolerate The Rocky Horror Picture Show (but not the actual stage show).

I can stick some of the Disney films, too, but it depends which one.  Their Robin Hood film is pretty much the only one where I don't throw things at the TV.

South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut - funny the first time around, and the songs are pretty good, but it gets stale very quickly.

I have never liked most musicals, I don't mind the odd song, but why sing simple questions to people? Have a song and maybe a dance fine, but you can talk to people it wouldn't hurt ya!

Musicals I like - well mostly Disney stuff - Pinnochio, Dumbo, Beauty & The Beast, then there is Meet Me In St Louis, A Star Is Born (Judy Garland/James Mason version).

Musicals I hate with a passion - sound of music (music you call that music?) , singing in the rain, Lion King pah!!!!!

I haven't seen Mamma Mia - but the trailers on constant rotation, did my bloody head in! I like Abba, but that just sounded vile.

Since I never posted on topic, I should say that I love musicals. I watched early Best Picture Oscar winner The Great Ziegfeld earlier this year, and it's just amazing. I fell in love with it.

I love how Myrna Loy STAR of the film shows up 2+ hours into said film. It's good though, William Powell is ace.

When Moulin Rouge came out,i went to see it cos i had nothing else to do and there was nothing else on that i wanted to see.I usually like Nicole Kidman and the film had good reviews so i figured what the hell.

I walked out after 15 mins.

No man should like Moulin Rouge or Mamma Mia cause they're rubbish.

However any man who dislikes Astaire & Rogers musicals should be sterilized so the rest of us can enjoy a better tomorrow.

Quick scan of the thread, and no-one seems to have mentioned West Side Story. Amazing dancing, tunes, cinematography, story. One of the best Shakespearean adaptions. To me the best musical ever, and in my top ten favourites films of any genre.

Last christmas Mamma Mia came on the telly and i watched it with the family and i really enjoyed it.

Mind you i had a lot of drink taken and it was more unintentional laughter at the sight of James Bond singing Abba songs!

Moulin Rouge, South Park, Muppets Christmas Carol, Rocky Horror and er...Burlesque are all great. Oh and Cabaret and The Happiness of the Katakuris aint too shabby either.

I like the South Park movie, The Blues Brothers, Bugsy Malone and all the Muppet Movies (Muppets from Space hardly counts though).

Haven't seen many actual musicals.....

Any musical with Gene Kelly is a musical which a manly man can enjoy.

BOOMP!

I have to confess that the Musical is probably my least favourite genre. That's not to suggest that I hate all of them, not for a second, but I get quite impatient if I'm watching a film on TV and suddenly a 5 minute song and dance routine crops up and I can't figure out why.

Disney movies do much better at this I find, with their songs advancing the story, but I was watching a Fred Astaire musical a while back, and after a few minutes I lost all visual sense as the red mist descended over my eyes

I won't say all the ones I like as there are still genuinely too many to mention, but right now my musical of choice is Cabaret. The songs are memorable and catchy, the Nazi theme is quite horrifying*, and because the story itself allows the songs to be played out as stage productions it bypasses my usual gripe of "Why are they doing this??"

I noticed in Readers Reviews that some of the posts were along the lines of "I'd rather cut my own fucking legs off", so I was just wondering if any non-musical fans have been converted, put off, intrigued, etc by the high praise/backlash heaped upon Les Miserables.

I absolutely love musicals and am not afraid to admit it. I'd be inclined to say that I prefer them to my fiancée.

I love 'Thoroughly Modern Millie', 'Singing in the Rain', 'Mary Poppins', 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang'. I've seen a plethora of musicals and enjoyed many on the stage too. I find it very narrow minded if people completely rejected Musicals as a genre just because they 'interrupt' the story with music and dancing.

I think there's a few people posting here who are stating they like musicals but quoting what would be perceived as 'cool' musicals i.e 'Blues Brothers' (a very good movie) and 'South Park' (also excellent).

I also agree that Mama Mia ( I call it Mama diarrhoea) is atrocious, however I find Abba unbearable and having people sing these songs badly is just too much.

Depends on the genre of the actual music really. A lot of it is not my thing, so the movie will never be as a consequence regardless of the rest of the story etc.
