...yeah, no blood, no tits, nothing blows up,...what a frackin' waste of time.


Serbia wrote:Sorry, that has nothing to do with my reasons for hating that movie. I hate over 95% of the musicals I've ever seen. Singing and dancing make some people happy, but they just make me hate everything. There have been plenty of movies that I've enjoyed that don't have tits or explosions or blood, but Sound of Music isn't one of them.

You're right. Even before your responses, I was thinking of posting a semi-retraction. Not everybody who dislikes the movie is as I characterized them in my post. (just, I would wager, the vast majority, but you may be exceptions)

Serbia, have you seen Fiddler on the Roof?
The right answer to the wrong question is still the wrong answer to the real question.

I have. Though, I haven't seen it since I was in my early teens, and I never was able to give it my full attention for the entire movie. However, I did enjoy it.
