I always say that musicals just aren’t my thing. Maybe it’s the after effects of being forced to watch The Sound Of Music as a kid way more times than anyone should. But in recent years I’ve discovered that the modern musical ain’t so bad. I believe it started with Moulin Rouge
, and flowed into Chicago
, than last year with Dreamgirls
and this year with Hairspray
. I haven’t seen Sweeney Todd
yet, but I’m betting I’ll like it. Either musicals have changed, or I’ve just come to appreciate them.
But then comes the trailer for Mamma Mia!
, which doesn’t look interesting to me in the least. The musical numbers look more like something you would see in a television production than the big screen. The dreadful close-ups and bad acting just look all so aweful. Please, someone, convince me that I’m wrong. Point out the genius that I’m not finding, and tell em why I should be hyped for this film adaptation.
