Memorable musical movies

One of the things I like about blogging is that you can blog about anything you like, and that includes both exciting and mundane stuff. You can post a serious article or a light piece depending on what suits you best. Over the past two years this blog has veered towards the latter mainly because I have the patience but not the time to write thought-provoking and debate-inducing stories. Of course, I could post a well-researched piece every few days rather than write nonsense every single day (Asterix and Obelix agree with me – look at them go!) But then, I like to post something daily, even if it’s hackneyed stuff, because it keeps the momentum going (I don’t know where) and because, hopefully, it will attract more traffic (I don’t see how).

That’s enough baiting and fishing for the day (or night in my case). I’ll leave you with more of the banal (in terms of post treatment) — this time a film reel of some of the most memorable musical films ever. I’ve seen them all, in no particular order. Like I said I don’t have the time to write about each of them separately unless I do one or two a week. Now if only I’d the patience…

  2. Mystica, they sure were! I liked GREASE 2 over Travolta-Newton John's GREASE. The same went for Zsa Zsa Gabor's MOULIN ROUGE ahead of the Nicole Kidman remake. But my favourite musical film will always be THE SOUND OF MUSIC.

  3. My wife likes musicals. I've actually only made it all the way through one musical in my life. "Song of the South,' and that's because I went to the theater and paid to see it. Other than that, nope.

  4. Charles, thanks for mentioning SONG OF THE SOUTH. I had never heard of this Walt Disney film before.
