Archive for the ‘Musical’ Category

Ok so I was at the bookstore today…browsing movie magazines, and I stumbled upon this small section in a DVD magazine…dedicated to readers collection of DVDs…where readers get to boast the huge collection they have …with pictures and all. And wow…the collection they feature was huge…This guy had like close to 3000 DVD…Wow. And of course he doesn’t have the biggest…Some other guy has like close to 14000 DVDs. Lets do a calculation. How much do I need to get myself 14000 DVD assuming each costs at least $25….14000×25=350000…again Wow.Thats a lot of money. Haha…If only I have that much…my collection is pretty pathetic…not worth mentioning…Then again why would I want 14000 DVDs…other then…to show it off in a magazine…I’d want only the good ones…the ones I actually like…the ones I can watch over and over again…thats maybe like a 1000 at most. 🙂 or maybe a lot less.

Coming Soon

Across the Universe

I’m not really a fan of musicals…and it’s been along time since I’ve watched a musical that I actually liked…way back in 2001, Moulin Rouge.

Across the Universe is a new musical coming to us in September. According to IMDB, It is an original musical film and is a fictional love story set in the 1960s amid the turbulent years of anti-war protest, the struggle for free speech and civil rights, mind exploration and of course rock and roll. The film is also paired with many Beatles songs that defined the time and stars Evan Rachel Wood and Jim Sturgess as Lucy and Jude, the young lovers.

I’ve recently caught the trailer and I think it looks pretty. Its colourful, loud and seems quite theatrical too. The story itself looks pretty interesting.…of course the songs we know should be good right…So hope this is a good musical…Definitely something I would want to check out. You can view the trailer here.

Paris, je t’aime

Another movie that’s coming to us this time in May is Paris, je t’aime. Now this is an interesting movie to watch out for. Its actually made up of 20 films, all directed by different directors…to name a few, Alfonso CuarĂłn, Gus Van Sant, Tom Tykwer, Wes Craven. I’m really curious how they’re going to weave all the stories together to make one coherent movie. If it works…then this would be a great film…I kinda think it is…I mean why else…would all these well known directors and actors would want to be involved in it if its not…Well of course…there’s also the money thing…
Anyway you can check out the plot summary at IMDB here.
