    Viva La Vie Boheme!

    Rent is a musical movie based off the Broadway musical. Rent examines the lives of a circle of friends in one year’s time, and how they support one another, and their struggles with their relationships. The cast of characters includes a struggling filmmaker, a musician who is HIV positive, a stripper who is addicted to heroin, a drag queen street drummer with AIDs, a performance artist, a lawyer, and an out of work teacher with HIV. The songs are excellent, some of my favorite being ‘Seasons of Love’, ‘Light My Candle’, ‘Today 4 U’, ‘Out Tonight’, and ‘I’ll Cover You’. My favorite scene of the whole movie is when the entire company sings ‘La Vie Boheme’ on the tables of a bar. The energy that they emit makes you want to dance on tables next time you go out with friends.

    No Day but Today

    I don't usually go in for musicals or homosexuality per se, but I stay open-minded. Rent was a good departure from what I watch usually on film or TV, which is gratitutous violence or sex, which this doesn't have. This has a powerful message of pervading themes like friendship, hope, freedom of the human spirit, and optimism even in the face of the despairing face of death, AIDS, illness, addiction, and poverty. Inspiring, with great riffs and varied music from Larson.

    Eh...mama-huhu

    lol Mamahuhu means so-so in Mandarin. But aside from that, let it beknownst that I am a RENThead, and a Larson-Lover, and all of that. In short: I love RENT. I love the music, the lyrics, the acting, every aspect of it. HOWEVER, the soundtrack was not better than the original. The acting was not as good as the original. The direction was not as good as the original. I tried to look optimistic, but it just fell short. I have a major beef with Chris Columbus. HE SUCKS. He said, "Hey. I like this play. It would make money." Everyone said "fine". He says "give me the original actors, some money and a camera and I'll let them do their thing." THERE WAS NO DIRECTION. He let them sing the songs and actualy say some of the songs which kinda sounded ridiculous, but he didn't have a single input. The movie was good. I bought it. But it was NOT the original. And it's a mistake to think it is.
