Adieu, Adieu, to yoo & yoo & yoo! - The Sound of Music review by AM

Spoiler Alert
26/05/2020

Obviously this is a musical classic, and one of your mum's favourite films, if your mum is anything like mine. And I bet she is, you little tinkers!

But it's not my bag tbh. I didn't mind it, and it's an exceptionally warm film, both the colours, the songs and the performances. But I found it a little dull myself. Still - been meaning to see it for years and glad I did.

IF YOU LIKE MUSICALS YOU'LL LIKE IT, BOSS! Song Bananas! :)

Much Beloved & Actually Rather Good - The Sound of Music review by GI

Spoiler Alert
09/04/2021

There's little doubt this is a highly popular musical and loosely based on a true story, with some very well known songs and a story that is a delightful romance in a time that requires a battle with oppression it really couldn't go wrong from release to this very day. In a rather funny aside star Christopher Plummer hates the film to this day and really despised the whole experience often referring to it in interviews as The Sound of Mucus. He plays the strict Austrian naval Captain Von Trapp, a wealthy widow with seven children. When the young Maria (Julie Andrews) is hired from the local convent to be the new governess she transforms the family from a morose disciplined one to a happy and bright one especially as they can all sing in harmony. Soon they become locally established as a singing troupe and Maria and the Captain start to have feelings for each other. But all this is threatened by the political take over by the Nazis who the Captain despises. A rather lovely family film and an important musical. It's all starry eyed and dreamy but it does warm the heart somewhat and the children aren't as annoying as they often can be in such films.
