Recently I went to see the movie adaptation of the musical Rock of Ages, and I thought it was amazing.
It kinda played out like a 2 hour 80’s rock video with a wafer-thin plot, but none of that mattered. I loved the songs used, and the performances were top notch. Catherine Zeta-Jones knew exactly what she was doing, having previously starred in Chicago and Tom Cruise’s vocals were unexpectedly awesome.
I’m now going to have the soundtrack stuck in my head for quite some time….
I really liked the Adam Sandler movie “The Wedding Singer”, and when I found out it had been adapted into a musical had planned to go check it out. Still haven’t had the chance, so this’ll suffice…
Avenue Q is a musical I highly recommend. Extremely funny, with great songs to boot, it’s something like an adult version of The Muppets….
Another awesome piece from the guys at Blind Ferret Entertainment….
Day 9 – Favourite musical
Another easy one. I would have listed South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut but as I have already listed it as my favourite animated feature, my favourite musical is Bugsy Malone.
With a cast consisting entirely of kids the whole thing is brilliantly done. I love the American gangsters-style setting, pies as lethal weapons and outstanding musical performances.
My favourite song from the movie:
