Classic musical!

"What a glorious feeling..."

Singin' in the Rain is a bona fide guilty pleasure; this wonderful musical is a classic and has always been remembered as one of the greatest movie musicals in film history. For those of you unfamiliar with the title song I suggest you rent the film without hesitation. The image of Gene Kelly merrily dancing in the pouring rain while singing is one of th... read more

Singin' in the Rain is often hailed as the greatest musical ever made. It's constantly referenced in modern film, and has been universally labeled as a masterpiece. So would it be strange if I were to say this film would've been much better without the musical numbers?

I have nothing against musicals. Some of my favorite films are musicals. But the songs in Singin' in the Rain are m... read more

Singin’ in the Rain plants its tongue in both of its cheeks at the same time, offering up a self-aware guffaw, and an eye-roll over how preposterous this whole fame thing is. Typically, Hollywood can’t help but indulge in some deeply self-critical appraisals in films about its own practices and history, but Singin’ in the Rain is a jubilant blast of musical comedy.   Telling the story of... read more

Glorious classic film musical. 1927: Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are the darlings of the silent silver screen. Offscreen, Don, aided by his happy-go-lucky friend and piano accompanist, Cosmo Brown, has to dodge Lina's romantic overtures, especially when he falls for chorus girl Kathy Selden. With the advent of sound in motion pictures, it is decided to turn Don and Lina's new film into a "talkie" and a musical at that. The only problem is Lina's voice, which mere words cannot describe. Thus, Kathy is brought on to dub her speaking and singing voice in secret, and Don's on top of the world. But then Lina finds out.

"When it comes to these show-musicals I tend to prefer the rougher pre-code ones. Which isn't to detract from the standout numbers here (look, the movie is named after one for a reason) or any moment of Gene Kelly's dancing or Debbie Reynolds' dancing, but this thing didn't grab me overall despite the setting being very interesting. I don't think they went too deep into the transition from silents to talkies, and barely milked the comedy inherent to the process. If this had like two less slapstic"

"“Singin’ in the Rain is a perfect marriage of music and filmmaking. The songs and the numbers not only make sense but they advance the story. And the story itself is a wonderful look at Hollywood’s transition from silent movies to sound, replete with nervous studio bosses, emerging contract players, and established stars tripping over their own eyes. It’s as sharp and as fast as anything before or since.” -Rob Reiner"

" Notes: First of all, even though I never really cared for Fred Astaire, I always thought that Gene Kelly was very charismatic and he was, of course, a great dancer but, even though this movie was supposed to be his magnum opus, I have to admit that I had a rather hard time to really care about the damned thing. I mean, sure , I did like it but I can't say it really blew me away. Even though the story is usually the weakest point in most of the musicals I have seen, I actually enjoyed this plot"

"First viewing - Feb. 22nd My buddy at work brought up Singin' in the Rain and I admitted I'd never seen it and he was baffled. I explained that it's largely because I'm not a fan of musicals, but also I've never had any friends or significant others who insisted I watch it with them so it's never been a priority. He then loaned it to me and suggested I watch it with the kiddo, which I did. And to my surprise I wound up pretty much loving it. It helps that some of the musical numbers are funny ("
