May 2017 at the Cinema

Into the fifth month of 2017 and I have managed to increase the number of films I got to see at the cinema back up to 10 this month, which actually includes two National Theatre Live productions of plays direct from the West End.

Cineworld Unlimited Card is £17.90 per month and I saw 8 films that qualified for the month which meant £2.23 per film. I had to pay for the Theatre productions £8.10 each, without an Unlimited card this is £16.99.

I saw the following films in May:

1st – Lady Macbeth – Review

2nd – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – Review

7th – Unlocked – Review

9th – A Dog’s Purpose – Review

11th – National Theatre Live: Obsession – Review

15th – Alien: Covenant – Review

18th – National Theatre Live: Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? – Review

23rd – Colossal – Review

7 Recent Movie Musicals You Should Watch!

la-la-land-audition-14_zps6jksi1x1As expected I totally loved La La Land, although I was a little bit scared that I might have been disappointed with my total love for musicals. As you will already know if you follow my blog I am very big on not only movie musicals but also going to the Theatre and have seen a lot of musicals on stage.

I am therefore a little bit annoyed and sick of people saying that La La Land has saved the musical genre, as we have actually had some fantastic musicals released to film in the past few years. The problem is though the fans of musical films seem to be few and far between now. The hype around La La Land will leave people disappointed I am sure, especially if they don’t usually like musicals.

Don’t get me wrong though as I am happy that it will help increase awareness of the genre, but I really do think that we should be thankful for some of the films we have had released over the past few years. The films I have picked in the list are from the past four years. So while we don’t get as many musical films out each year, we do still get a steady flow. I have tried to vary my choices on different types of music to really help show that no matter your music tastes you will be able to find a musical that suits your tastes.

I guess the biggest problems seem to be the adaptations from more well known stage shows, as they seem to be quite tricky to do! As I guess some scenes, songs and moments just work better on stage and don’t transfer to the screen in the best possible way. Sometimes the casting causes issues as well, but we have to just deal with that as well!
