I’m in a musical mood. Broadway kind of musical though, not walking in the farm wearing a big dress and start shrieking some boring song with my square looking boyfriend by my side kind of musical.
So I haven’t seen many musicals because I find them boooooooring, with very few exceptions like: The Rocky Horror Picture Show .
However, there are a few I discovered recently that made me happy. I love many songs in Gypsy for example. But it is a tough choice to watch a musical made in
I’m enjoying more the newer versions. The women are hotter, the men are more beautiful, and the wardrobe saucier.
By the by, I got Sweeney Todd on super-HD and can’t wait to watch again :D And this time I will be able to skip that horrible horrible H O R R I B L E song, yes you know which one I’m talking about, “Johana”, brrrrrr this song is like drinking orange juice after you’ve brushed your teeth. URSH!
Ah but, every masterpiece has its week point ;)
Oh and something irrelevant, yet relevant since I’m thinking of Johnny Depp; The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is finally completed but it will be sometime until it is released :( Late fall, beginning of winter. Ah, I keep my fingers crossed for Terry. It has been a while since his last film - Tideland - which I loved by the way, and I am expecting big things from him. Plus I think (but mostly hope) that with Heath Ledger’s death his “curse” is lifted and he will be back on track. I can’t think of anyone as unlucky but he is not giving up.
The most pleasant surprise about Mr. Terry Gilliam is that he is giving an old dead movie another chance. Yes he will, he will make a second attempt to film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. I didn’t think he had it in him to give Quixote another chance, not after what he went through (see the Lost in La Mancha documentary if you don’t know what I’m talking about) But no, it seems his spirit is up and he is on his way to glory days again :)
Thankfully!!! Because there aren’t many directors out there really making art anymore. Entertainment sure, lots of them, but art … very very few.
