10 Years On . . . That’s Chicago

Chicago winning Best Picture in 2003 at the Oscars is often regarded as a mistake due to the other films nominated that year. I fell in love with it but then again I am just a little bit of musical geek. So obviously I still love it and have it as one of my all time favorite films. The academy showed its supposed love for musicals that year but Oliver! was the previous Best Picture winner for a musical so it had been a very long time between a musical winning the best picture award. I think it’s quite scary that it is now 10 years on and loved how the cast we involved in the 2013 ceremony. Especially the All That Jazz performance from Catherine Zeta Jones that totally made the whole show for me. It’s a great song one of the best openings to a musical and it also helped show that she still has it after more than 10 years!

Chicago (2002) / Nine (2009)

While I was writing my review for Nine (and even watching it) I was trying not to compare it to Chicago. Mainly because I love Chicago and it is one of my favorite films ever, so to compare another musical directed by Rob Marshall on one viewing would not be very fair. So I have decided to take a deeper look into both movies and not really say which one is better, but to show comparisons.

Nine (2009) Release Date Change

I have just read that the release date for Nine has been pushed back from November to December. So delayed for about a month. I have to admit that I am so disappointed as this really is a film I have been looking forward to since it was announced. I think if you have read my blog before you will know that I am a big fan of musicals. So a new movie version of a musical from the director who brought one of my favorite films Chicago made me extremely excited. I still think it will be totally worth the wait, but still such a let down that we have to wait an extra month for it. Hopefully in that time though, the poster will be released, along with another trailer and to top it all off the soundtrack. I really want to listen to the soundtrack before seeing the film, as I like being knowing the songs before seeing a musical.
