Am I making a huge mistake?
« on: December 21, 2007, 01:49:32 AM »
I just put the movie "Once" in my Netflix que. Should I take it out immediately?

I like musicals, and I thought this sounded interesting, because I've never seen a musical where the characters have an actual reason to sing, instead of just randomly bursting into song. But I feel I may be treading on dangerous ground here. Have any of you guys seen it?

You should put Cop Rock in your que
if that came out on DVD


people make fun of it
but I remember being impressed by it at 12
"A woman suspects that her daughter's imaginary friend is a ghost haunting their new home"

I've heard only good things about it. The AV Club deemed it the second-best film of the year, behind No Country For Old Men.

Godspeed, Beth.
It ain't ego, it's my love for you.

I have it at home and will watch it over the holidays.  I'm skeptical, but I've heard good things about it.

You should put The Umbrellas of Cherbourg in your queue.

You should put The Singing Detective in your queue. 

P.S. Typing "queue" is fun.

Yes! And why not make it a double-feature with Les demoiselles de Rochefort while you're at it? It's guaranteed to pick you up after watching Umbrellas.

I loved the film its not a musical in the sense of things like Dreamgirls or Sweeney Todd. But there is music and it plays an important role in the film.

Plus it does not have some crap hollywood ending

Since you mentioned it, I watched Dreamgirls and found it to be crap.  I'd rather see Lady Sings the Blues again:  I'll take the real Diana Ross pretending to be someone else over one of today's pop stars pretending to be her any day.

I liked it.  You're not making a huge mistake.

The guy in Once is more than twice as old as the girl, and they're stepping out IN REAL LIFE and he's known her since she was 12 and that's creepy.

People who have seen it: are the songs not awful?!
