115 mins     Drama, Musical      

Not being a fan of Eminem's music, watching "8 Mile" was never at the top of my list of things to do, but under pressure I found myself watching it and expected another mediocre performance from a singer who thinks they can a...

A Christmas Carol: The Musical (2004)   3/53/53/53/53/5

97 mins     Drama, Fantasy, Musical, TV Movie      

From classic period dramas to contemporary remakes, Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" has been used in a movie so many times that you wonder why anyone would want to try and breathe life into such an over used story. Yet t...

A Country Christmas Story

A Country Christmas Story (2013)   3/53/53/53/53/5

98 mins     Drama, Family, Musical, TV Movie      

I know it's only a title but when a movie mentions "Christmas" in a title I expect, well I expect a good dollop of Christmas. So when I came across "A Country Christmas Story" I thought great a Christmas movie with a country ...

A Damsel in Distress

A Damsel in Distress (1937)   3/53/53/53/53/5

98 mins     Comedy, Musical, Romance      

"A Damsel in Distress" is on one hand a unique movie but on the other not unique at all, I know that's a contradiction but it's true. It is unique because it is the only time that author P.G. Wodehouse assisted in writing a s...

84 mins     Comedy, Musical      

If someone asked me to watch a movie featuring a day in the life of say One Direction or Take That or even Guns n Roses I would say no, not because I have anything against the bands but just the thought of spending 90 minutes...

A Ticket to Tomahawk

A Ticket to Tomahawk (1950)   3/53/53/53/53/5

90 mins     Comedy, Musical, Western      

"A Ticket to Tomahawk" is all about the rootin' tootin' Kit Dodge Jr., a plucky young woman who won't take no bossing from the men. Except when you think of other old westerns involving a rootin' tootin' cowgirl you think big...

Abbott and Costello Meet Captain Kidd

Abbott and Costello Meet Captain Kidd (1952)   3/53/53/53/53/5

70 mins     Adventure , Comedy, Musical      

So my first Abbott and Costello movie and by the sounds of it I couldn't have picked a worse movie to start with as the general opinion about "Abbott and Costello Meet Captain Kidd" is one of negativity. I can sort of appreci...

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994)   4/54/54/54/54/5

104 mins     Comedy, Drama, Musical      

Watching "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" is a surreal experience as you watch a drag queen in full get up on top of a bus miming to some operatic aria as it goes across the dusty outback. But it is also rem...

All That Jazz

All That Jazz (1979)   3/53/53/53/53/5

123 mins     Drama, Musical      

Let me say right away "All That Jazz" is not going to be for everyone as we have this mix of dramatization and fantasy. We can go from one minute watching Gideon running a packed audition and then the next he seems to be back...

An American in Paris (1951)   3/53/53/53/53/5

113 mins     Musical, Romance

Anchors Aweigh (1945)   4/54/54/54/54/5

143 mins     Comedy, Musical, Romance      

Gene Kelly dancing with Jerry of Tom & Jerry fame, that is what most people know "Anchors Aweigh" for and those who have seen it will also say it is like a prototype for the later musical "On the Town" as they share a similar...

Annie

Annie (1982)   3/53/53/53/53/5

126 mins     Family, Musical      

The last time I watched "Annie" I must have been 13 and remember enjoying the fun musical with catchy tunes and crime caper storyline. But now as a thirty something I watched "Annie" and found myself cringing from the over th...

92 mins     Family, Musical, TV Movie      

There comes a time in most children's lives when all of a sudden old movies are a No-No, they suddenly become uncool, it is one of the reason why we get remakes. The irony of this is that the children who would watch "Annie: ...

Anything Goes

Anything Goes (1956)   3/53/53/53/53/5

106 mins     Musical      

Watching "Anything Goes" I wondered how this musical would have turned out if it had featured Danny Kaye instead of Donald O'Connor as O'Connor delivers the same sort of humorous side-kick performance which Kaye had delivered...

April in Paris

April in Paris (1952)   2/52/52/52/52/5

94 mins     Comedy, Musical, Romance      

The collaboration of Doris Day and director David Butler gave us the great movie/musical "Calamity Jane", shame I can't say they same about "April in Paris" which was released a year earlier. It's sadly almost a throw away mo...
