Oliver!, cures what ails ya.

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

“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! "

Alternate Best Picture Winners (1927-Today) (170 movies items)

"Turning one of Charles Dickens darkest novels and turning it into one of the gawdiest, whimsicle comedies ever made is such a terrible idea. And giving this film Best Picture in the same year as 2001 is just plain incomprehensible."

"24.3.2012 1960-luvulla musikaalielokuvat olivat vielä iso juttu ja Oliverkin voitti kourallisen Oscareita. Useimmat biisit eivät kovin muistettavia, mutta muutoin aika kiva musikaalielokuvasovitus tutusta tarinasta. Carol Reedin ohjaus on varmaotteista ja Ron Moody loistaa Faginin roolissa. Nyt on Dickensin 200v juhlinnat potkaistu omaltakin osalta käyntiin. "

Ranking the Best Picture Winners (1960s) (10 movies items)

"It starts off well enough and is very appealing for about the first 20 or so minutes. However, the characters and story quickly become a drag set to music."

25 Greatest Classic Musicals (25 movies items)

"Oliver! is such a fun film, such an enjoyable experience, and has so many lovable, unique qualities - to name a few, the Brilliant performance of Ron Moody as Fagin, Carol Reed's inspired turn as a director of a film musical, and the catchy songs by Lionel Bart. Please, Hollywood, we want more! "
