Top 10 movie musicals

This may be an unconventional top 10 as I’m generally not fond of musicals.

10. The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

Not really a good movie, but a great experience going to a midnight showing. Tim Curry is a scream.

9. Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971)

I get a kick just looking at Gene Wilder.

8. La La Land (2016)

Visually brilliant and romantic.

7. Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001)

A funny and edgy transgender riot.

6. Grease (1978)

Hey, what gal doesn’t love Grease?

5. Cabaret (1972)

This is why Liza Minnelli is a legend.

4. Singin’ in the Rain (1952)

The gold standard.

3. The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964)

Unique and captivating French film in which every word of dialogue is sung.

2. The Wizard of Oz (1939)

Everybody’s childhood favorite.

1. The Blues Brothers (1980)

Belushi and Ackroyd. Ackroyd and Belushi.
