One of my all-time faves

I hate musical movies. Everyone's all singing and dancing.. and being very annoying.

On our honeymoon in San Francisco, Graham and I went to see "Sweeney Todd". Unbeknownst to us, it was a musical. After 10 minutes of "what the hell--when are they going to stop singing", it finally dawned on us that this movie was a musical. We quickly left and got a refund.

But, there is an exception...

"Moulin Rouge". It isn't annoying and all happy. It's different.. kind of dark and sad.

I loooooove the music.

I wanted to watch it this Sunday after singing a hymn in church that had the lyrics "come what may".. my favorite song in the movie. I love the reprise of that song at the end when they're actually performing the play on stage. It's so moving to me. Anyways, I know it's totally girly, but "Moulin Rouge" is definitely one of my top movies. Just thought you'd like to know.

It is pretty amazing. Very different. Of course, I love all musicals. I didn't want to see Sweeny Todd because it looked too scary. I think it's funny that you didn't know it was a musical from the previews. :)
