 :laugh: Not missing out at all. I have seen some musicals. Not that long ago I suffered through High School Musical when my daughter really wanted me to watch it with her. And there was one or 2 in the past that I suffered through for my wife before she passed away.

I strongly urge you to watch Romance & Cigarettes.
I'd go as far as saying if you do not like that 'musical', I'd give you your money back  :thumbup:

You don't get it, Critter! Pete doesn't like music. :P Even background music annoys him!

Now I love music, but I cannot stomach musicals. The only musical I really enjoyed was the episode of Buffy! And that's because they recognised how daft they are (though I realise Whedon proved you can know this and still devote your life to them). I just can't get by the idea of singing instead of acting!

My Thoughts:
This is another one I bought last month but never got around to watching. Not really too much to say about this one... while it was ok... I wasn't overly impressed. It really isn't anything more then an average horror. Just basically another take on the backwoods horror. And there is definitely better then this for that sub-genre.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

My Thoughts:
This is one of the movies in the Mortuary of Madness boxset that I been wanting to check out since I first saw the above cover art for it. Of course I know you can't go just by the cover art on these movies... so I went into it with pretty low expectations. And it is a good thing that I went into it not expecting much. While the acting needs much improvement... I have seen worse. The script could use some polishing as well. But as I said about the acting... I have seen worse. The audio and video quality was right good on this release. As for the story... I didn't care much for the idea of the vampire not being effected by the sun.  But I have noticed that all vampire movies takes liberties with the vampire legend... especially these very low budget movies.

Oh haha, I see. This is a severe case. I suppose not much chance of seeing Pete's huge CD collection then  :P.

I loved that episode of Buffy too and I do love a lot of musicals. Even I however can't stomach the tripe such as High School Musical. I think my love of musicals comes from the old Disney films such as The Lion King etc. I consider most of those films musicals and I loved them all as a child. Now however it's films such as Across the Universe, Chicago and Moulin Rouge! that are my favourite musicals.

Little round disc, looks very similar to a DVD in fact but it comes in a sqaure case. But get this, instead of putting moving pictures on the disc, they only put sound! How insane is that  :P

What about Dr. Horrible? And you obviously like The Wicker Man, so not all is lost. And I second Rich's recommendation of Romance & Cigarettes.

Oh, yes, I'd forgotten Dr. Horrible! But The Wicker Man isn't a musical. Actors performing to diegetic music is fine and positively encouraged. It's when they suddenly burst into song outside of the stories logic and other cast members stupidly dance with them in complicated choreography, or worse, stand around gurning. I just don't like it. I looked up a clip of Romance and Cigarettes and really enjoyed the wit. Winslet is incredible! And then, she sang. For no reason. And paraded around outside with other random characters. It seems at odds with the rest of the clip. I will try it one day though; I'm not actually anti-musical! I just tend not to enjoy them.
