Midweek Mouth-off: Music(als) to our ears


Given the number of superhero, sci-fi and skop, skiet en donder films that receive news coverage (and fanboy love) at TheMovies.co.za, I think it’s a safe to say that musicals aren’t a popular genre in these here parts. Or are they…?

With Les Miserables currently filling seats in local cinemas, today we want to hear about your feelings towards song-and-dance films. Love them? Hate them? Do you have a fave? Let us know.

About The Author

Copywriter by day, pop culture blogger by night (and lunch breaks and weekends), Noelle has been a movie addict since her mother rather inappropriately took her to see Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom at the cinema when she was just 3. Her all-time cinema faves include the Indy trilogy, Batman Returns, Coraline, The Prestige, Gladiator and all those awesome dark fantasy flicks of the 1980s.

      Def those two. But I’d also mention Grease and Blues Brothers.

    I wouldn’t say the genre isn’t popular. There are a lot of films from recent years – Pitch Perfect, Happy Feet, High School Musical – as well as the success of stuff like Glee on TV. It’s not as big as in the Golden Age, but musicals certainly still fill seats.
