Les Miserables (2012)
In this 19th century sobbing French musical movie, I keep my face tissue handy. Among them, a former criminal named Jean Valjean adopted an orphan named Cosette after his mother died. As France began to split before the Paris uprising in 1832, Jean Valjean’s former jailer and police officer Javert continued to pursue him.
This classical musical movie reappeared in the news after some creepy conspiracy theories (opened in the new label), but we know and like grease because of the hand waving melody, excellent cast and iconic costume changes: “Tell me, stud.”
Everybody’s Talking About Jamie (2021)
In fact, this musical movie is based on real events. It was originally a musical: Jamie New, a high school student, wanted to become a cross dressing queen, but faced prejudice from his classmates, his father and the whole world. He is not frightened, but continues to move forward with the help of his mentor Loco Chanelle (Richard E. Grant). With carefully choreographed songs and dance figures, Jamie becomes Mimi and finds his true self, which is very gorgeous.
Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971)
This is not just a stick: this strange, surreal and exaggerated musical movie also contains many catchy songs. Gene Wilder, as an eccentric and sadistic chocolate factory owner, has never been so good as now. The songs about the disgusting death of every selfish child are very attractive.
The classic story of Cinderella and her glass shoes has been told countless times in the whole pop culture. However, it can be said that the musical movie in 1997 is the most important iteration in the fairy tale. Brandy plays our heroine, and Whitney Houston plays her fairy godmother. Cinderella is one of the most diverse actors on the screen, marking the first time that black girls around the world can regard themselves as princesses.
Purple Rain (1984)
Speaking of music legends and their greatest works… The prince played the leading role in a musical movie based on his life, in which children escaped from bad family life through music. It is basically Prince’s tool for playing songs such as “Purple Rain” and “When Doves Cry”. It is a lasting proof of the past legend.
The Muppet Movie (1979)
But you can’t be better than classic. There are many good puppet musicals, including their interpretation of Christmas carols, but come on! This song let Kermit sing the original “Rainbow Connection”! The origin story of the character! Hollywood Adventure! It is filled with characters in some way, but perfectly balanced.
