If you follow my blog or have come across it before you will know that I really do love musicals and have quite an obsession with them. This blog post is inspired by the latest release of Les Mis. I saw it at the cinema on Friday night and since Saturday morning I have listened to the soundtrack over and over again, think I’m up to my 10th listen now and I am going to see the film again at the cinema tomorrow night. This then got me thinking to how much I obsess over movie musicals! I mean I loved The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins growing up but my big musical obsession really started with Chicago, yes 10 years ago now. I actually watched it over and over again, you know the times when it finishes and then you just watch it from the start again. I loved everything about it (and still love it) I know every single word of it and have now since it 3 times on the stage as well.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Paranassus - A group of fans trying to ensure the film gets a big release in the US and latest news posted.
I have watched a few movies recently and thought that the actor in it has a fantastic career ahead of them so decided to make a top 10 list of those actors. With a few reasons why I think they will keep progressing and go on to do great things (potentially), from the movies I have seen them in. I decided to define the young actor, as an actor under the age of 30.
Different, strange, odd, bizarre are all words which could be used to describe this film but I am going to use brilliant! Yes it is very different to pretty much anything that I have seen before, but it was just so incredible in my opinion. Parts of it were a little odd and out of this world, but I really thought that was the whole point. Its so visually striking and very cleverly written, to include a lot of different songs by The Beatles. In a way of telling a very nice story.
