    Not as great as everyone says

    My good friend really hyped up this musical, so I was pretty excited when I rented it and pretty disappointed by the end. I think the actors who were chosen to play the main parts were just drawn out of a hat. They just were not made to play those parts. I'd skip out on this one.

    The worst Best Picture of all time!

    This film is a sorry excuse for the Academy to bestow an Oscar to the first musical to come along in a while. The movie is basically alright, but it is extremely overrated and was pushed across the finish line at the Academy Awards by middle-age women who love films where women are the key players; not to mention a man named Richard Gere. There are flaws to the film's structure that are too predominant to have been awarded. For one thing, all the musical sequences are not an intrical part of the film. They break off from the action of the plot and take us to a new location. That is an unforgivable mistake that makes the viewer feel distanced from the plot and characters. Upon repeated viewing, I understood what people liked about it: the music sequences that I dislike so much. People weren't in it for the plot, they were in it for the music, which is quite good. What the film is is a music video that somehow won the Oscar for Best Picture. The Academy wanted to make up for lost time and bestowed the most coveted trophy in Hollywood to a musical. What a falacy. I fear that it has started a chain reaction of bad Best Pictures that hasn't ended yet.
