Greatest musical (film) of all-time

Postby Army of GOD on Sat Nov 10, 2012 1:33 am

Alright, new category.

For those who aren't in the know, Monty Python and the Holy Grail is, according to the off-tropicers, the greatest comedy of all-time.

We'll do musicals now because seriously, musicals are awesome.

I'm going to increase the number of films to be voted on to 16, but am making an executive order and am making The Wizard of Oz, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and The Rocky Horror Picture Show already in the finals.

Also, post a god damn song from the musical (remember, you get to nominate one and second one. I don't want to see any idiots nominate four because they're too fucking stupid to read the OP).







Nominated (needs a second):
Moulin Rouge
Les Miserables
Mary Poppins
Phantom of the Paradise
The Lion King
Cannibal! The Musical
Voyage of the Rock Aliens
Monty Python and the Holy Grail

To be voted on:
Wizard of Oz
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Rocky Horror Picture Show
Little Shop of Horrors
West Side Story
Alice in Wonderland
The Wall
Muppet Treasure Island
Tommy
Grease
Fiddler on the Roof

OMG, the film version of Les Miserables looks awesome! Even casting a dude in his 30s as Marius seems only mildly off-putting.

Since somebody already nominated "West Side Story", I get to agree and choose two others. It's tough to narrow it down so much; there are so many good ones. but I gotta go with Fiddler on the Roof for one:



I'll have to get back on nomination # 2

I'm kinda surprised AoG is a rocky horror fan.
But how the hell do you mention rocky horror and not post the sweet transvestite song?

Anyway, I'm gonna work on the assumption that someone else is gonna nominate sweeney todd, so I'll go with:

Little shop of horrors

Ah, sorry! Just re-read the OP. Read it too fast the first time. OK, "Fiddler" is my nomination and "West Side" is my "second". That works. I'm likely to come back with a post full of "honorable mention"s, though.
