2 words...Judy...Garland. I watched this movie over and over and over again. I even had my grandmother make me a pink parasol to parade around with and matching gloves. I am in love with this movie and especially Judy Garland!

Pete's Dragon (1977)
Yet another movie I grew up with. I always wanted to cry at the end when Elliot tells Pete that he has to leave him *sniff sniff*. Great movie for kids and I will be passing this one along to my future children.

I can still recite every line to this movie. My favorite song was "In America". All the dancing and twirling and pretty dresses. I was such a girly girl as a child.

Annie (1982)
I remember watching this on a recorded VHS and at the end of it, Ice Castles started playing. I love this movie although Daddy Warbucks scared me a little as a child.

This movie I actually remember watching with my mother more than anything. To this day we will still sing lines from this to each other. "Match maker match maker make me a match..."

Dreamgirls (2006)
Dreamgirls is not at the top of my favorites list but it has grown on me over the years. Jennifer Hudson is wonderful and just hearing her voice gives me goosebumps.

Rent (2005)
I love the aray of characters in this movie and the fight that they have in them. This is just a beautiful film and I hope to see it on broadway some day.
Bethanezer's rating:
Though there are only slight differences between the film version and this one I have an appreciation for both just the same.

Corpse Bride (2005)
I will say this for both Corpse Bride and Nightmare Before Christmas: Both have a lovely dark humor that I just admire. I think that Tim Burton is a genius and I love everything he touches.

Mamma Mia! (2008)
Fun and up beat, Mamma Mia! is always a mood lifter. All set to the sounds of ABBA, this gives fresh life to their musical stylings.

Beautifully done. Julie Andrews was my idol growing up. I loved her voice and wanted to sing just like her.

Mary Poppins (1964)
I remember watching this movie over and over again with my brother and sister and when it came to Steppin Time, we would run around the living room jumping across the furniture like we were jumping from roof to roof (much to our mothers dismay)

Brigadoon (1954)
I always wanted to live in a town that disappeared for a hundred years.

I loved the fact that they all kidnapped 7 women, hold them hostage, then the women wind up falling in love with the brothers. Its like stockholm syndrome set to music.

Fame (1980)
I always wanted to go to this school. Who wouldnt want to attend a school where you dance in the cafeteria and get to do all the fun stuff instead of actual school work?!

First off, I LOVE the Beatles, so anything with their music in it im going to love but I think they did a beautiful job on this. They managed to get characters and a storyline out of just a handful of songs and for that I commend them. Not to mention, the cinematography is beautiful.

Chicago (2002)
All that Jazz...The 20's is one of my favorite era's. The style, the hair, the music. I just love this movie. Favorite song is a tie between Queen Latifa's "When Your good to Mama" and "Cell Block Tango"
Bethanezer's rating:
I love this movie. Its dark, its well acted, its a musical about vengance and murder...its Tim Burton. Plus Johnny Depp and Helena Bonaham Carter are both phenomenal!

Gigi (1958)
I was walking in walmart and passed throught the DVD Section and had to do a double take because I saw Gigi on dvd...of course I bought it! It just takes me back again to my grandmothers house and singing "thank heavens for little girls".

Hairspray (2007)
I have to say that this is probably my most favorite modern musical. Thought it is quite disturbing seeing John Travolta in drag, Im too busy getting caught up in my Zac Effron "yes-I-know-hes-to-young-for-me-but-I-can-oogle-anyway" crush. Hes just so damn pretty!
Bethanezer's rating:

Growing up I spent a lot of time with my grandmother. She was a big fan of old movies, especially musicals. When I watch them, Im reminded of her so I attribute my love for them to her as well. Some are old and some are new. I have left off any disney movies because I will be making a seperate list for those.
