Oliver!, cures what ails ya.

7 years, 11 months ago at Feb 27 21:10
Anyone with a heart in them cannot help being lifted by this musical. I'm yet to meet anyone who doesn’t know at least one song...'Oliver!' is a British Institution.

Every single song makes you want to join in and stirs an unexplainable pride in the heart of any Londoner. Every single adaptation of Dicken's Oliver after this has yet to hold a candle. Nobody has played a better D... read more

A good movie

Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since it won the Best Picture Academy award, I thought I should give it a try. The first interesting thing about this movie is that it was actually the end of an era. Indeed, while musicals were dominating the movie world at the time (The Broadway Melody (1929), The Great Ziegfeld (1936), Going My Way (1944), An American in Paris (1951),... read more

Description: Oliver Twist (Mark Lester), a nine-year-old workhouse orphan, is sold to an undertaker by workhouse officials after objecting to his scant rations. He soon manages to escape from bondage and make his way to London. There he's befriended by the precocious Artful Dodger (Jack Wild), a pickpocket who belongs to a gang of youthful thieves run by the wily Fagin (Ron Moody), a veteran cutpurse. This criminal mentor admits Oliver into his academy of larceny, introducing him also to the brutish Bill Sikes (Oliver Reed) and Sikes's kind-hearted girlfriend, Nancy (Shani Wallis). As time passes, Nancy becomes almost a mother to Oli ... (more)

A good movie

“Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since it won the Best Picture Academy award, I thought I should give it a try. The first interesting thing about this movie is that it was actually the end of an era. Indeed, while musicals were dominating the movie world at the time (The Broadway Melody (1929), The Great Ziegfeld (1936), Going My Way (1944), An American in Paris (1951), Gigi (1958), West Side Story (1961), My Fair Lady (1964), and The Sound of Music (1965) all won the Best Picture Academy award), this movie was the last musical to get the big prize. Eventually, it will take 34 years with ‘Chicago’ (which I really despised by the way) so that another musical won this prestigious award. Coming back to our main feature, I’m not sure if it is really that great” read more

"I like this movie long time. Sorry, Bajan voice over. I've liked this film ever since I can remember and I'm currently rehearsing to perform the musical for the 3rd time (I'm just in the chorus :/). I love the songs, the story, and the characters are like, 6-dimensional. The one thing I ABSOLUTELY HATE is Oliver's singing voice, ew! "
