    They don't make good one's anymore.

    OK, this was more on me spending time watching old Betty Hutton videos and wanting to share.

    Anyone have some favorite ladies from musicals?

    They don't make women like that anymore, either.

    Correction. They have NEVER made a good musical.

    Honestly, grown people walking down the street and they all just break out into song and perfect dance, yet this is somehow normal to you all??

    I'd be packing my stuff and moving as far away from that collection of freaks as fast as I could. :eek:

    That episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer was bearable, but it had some hotties in it.

    I love musicals!! I took my kids to see this many years ago. I still is one of my favorite musicals and to this very day, the CD is always in my CD player in my car and I know every word to every song.

    And then there's always Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews in Mary Poppins....

    (This one includes penguins)

    Dick Van Dyke might just be one of the best song and dance men ever!!

    Heck yeah, gangs and knife fights. How can you go wrong?

    Although WoC, I really don't think you are helping the cause much with Donny O. . . . . . . . Just sayin.

    The fight scenes in West Side Story were truly great works of choreography.

    Okay, let me say Donny is weird. BUT......he can really sing and he was absolutely fantastic in the role of Joseph in that musical. I don't think the musical would have been the same without Donny. (And he had his shirt off for a great part of the musical.)

    And I think I can get away with my choice in musicals......I'm a 'girl'. :D I can like 'girly' things.

    No, not "my bad" at all. In fact, you should have called me out on this. I like to be treated like 'one of the guys' here on FTF. No special favors or excuses when it comes to me and learning about guns. But when it suits me, I bring out the 'gender card'. Should I be allowed to do that..........I'm not sure but I don't think so. :D

    Now I want all of you to show me your "man cards". :p

    Was I not clear earlier?? :confused:

    There is absolutely NO good reason for someone to put time, effort and money into a "movie" that involves completely random people breaking out into song and dance. None. Period.

    I have been on this planet for a couple of decades, been halfway around the world and worked in like 8 states, 17-18, maybe 20 different cities, visited ten times that many and have a full passport.

    I have YET to experience this stupid assed trend. :rolleyes:

    If I want to see "good fight choreography" I will watch a movie like the original ONG BAK, or the "Hooked Up" early Jet Li films, with subtitles, and marvel at true choreography at it's purest form.

    Musicals? Sweet Jesus!! I ought to take all your man cards away and give them to the 11 year olds on my neices' soccer team, at least they have the sand to represent. :rolleyes:
