I'm in the mood to watch a musical tonight. The problem is, I think I've seen them all, or at least the best ones.


Make your recommendations around my strongest likes:


The greatest is going to have to be "Tommy" or "The Wall." Those movies I basically worship.


Next, I'd say that "Rocky Horror Picture Show," "Phantom of the Paradise," "Little Shop of Horrors," "Wizard of Oz," "The Pick of Destiny," or Troma's "Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead." Phenomenal movies that all lend a fantastic and atmospheric experience. I even like "Grease."


I'd even be up for movies that have musical sections in them, such as "Dead and Breakfast" which I find entertaining and fun. This can also apply to my absolute favorite of the Monty Pythons--"The Meaning of Life" as well.


Even the absolutely terrible "The Apple" is so bad, that it's musically hilarious and cheesy to the extreme. "Shock Treatment," although not a very engaging movie, has a decent enough musical experience that I enjoy!


I've already seen "Phantom of the Opera," which I dislike for the most part. I've seen this live at London, and it's a far cry from the real deal with the subpar singers (the exception being Patrick Wilson).


I haven't seen "Repo! The Genetic Opera," but I'm somewhat intrigued...


Not so much of a fan of the animation stuff.

Left this one out. Great great great little episodic movie. Recommended.


I know this wasn't a recommendation, but I "tried" to watch "Vicious Lips" last night. Not even good in the slightest degree.
