Musical Movies Worth the Popcorn and Tickets
If you’re in to music then surely musical movies have appealed to you one way or the other. These movies, although cheesy to some, are one of the few worthwhile viewing movies of all times. They are that good that people rush to buy tickets to watch them for the ninth time. Musical movies are not your run of the mill motion picture. For one, they showcase chart-busting songs and trendsetting dance moves. As proof, here are some musical movies that made a mark on people’s lives.
Who could ever forget Baby Houseman, the timid daddy’s girl born in to a privilege upbringing, and Johnny, a camp dance instructor whose background is a far cry from that of Baby’s. But despite of their conflicting social status, the two managed to beat the odds and end up together through dancing. But not just any kind of dance; with the music of (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life, Dirty Dancing became an iconic musical movie immortalizing Baby, Johnny, and those hips-swinging moves.
Even before the era of Dirty Dancing, musical movies have made quite a classic appeal to audiences. Proof to this is the 1964 musical film Mary Poppins starring cinema legend Julie Andrews. The story of Mary Poppins revolves around a nanny who can fly using her umbrella and keep the rambunctious Banks kids tidy using her magical powers. Mary Poppins became one of the greatest musical movies and proof is Julie Andrew’s Oscar award for Best Actress for this film.
Walk The Line
This is a bio film of the legendary country music superstar Johnny Cash. Starring Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash and Reese Witherspoon as another legendary country crooner, June, this movie not only earned millions in the box office worldwide but also got several Oscar nominations and good reviews. Eventually it led to Reese Witherspoon’s Oscar Best Actress award and the recognition that this is one of the best movies of the year.
High School Musical
Who knew that singing high school students would become such a smashing hit that they made two more parts of the film? High School Musical was first made as a television film for Disney Channel. It gained such a huge following that it became fitting to release High School Musical II. Millions of album sales, sold out concerts, and cool merchandise followed suit. But the fanatical demands of teens all over the world became stronger that Disney finally released a third film, this time theatrically. Thankfully, it sedated the musical cravings of teens but more than that, it earned the young actors on the film such enormous income and unwavering fame.Mail this post
