Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog Here with a top five list of my favorite movie musicals in honor of the rousing film “In The Heights” just released today. Now notice I did not say “best musicals” which gives me a free pass in not including some of the classics of yesteryear.

Howdy folks! It’s The Kendog here with a confession: I generally don’t care much for musicals. I enjoy some of the classics, of course, but there’s something about actors singing their dialogue and spontaneously throwing themselves into dance that just takes me out of the movie. It was especially true in my youth but as I’ve gotten older (if not wiser, heh) I’ve been forced to re-examine my biases toward the venerable cinematic genre and I’ve discovered that a lot of my enjoyment (or lack thereof) has to do with the music. For example, I hated “Les Miserables” because the music reflected the grim nature of the film. With “In The Heights,” the effect was the opposite. The music was so infectious, bouncy and enjoyable that it heightened my enjoyment of the film. Or maybe I’m just overthinking a bit. (It’s possible.)Continue reading
