Lately Brad reviewed four older and obscure musical films that weren't quite hits, for some reason or another.
I enjoyed the reviews very much, how about you?
At Long Last Love - I agree with the Snob, seems to be better and funnier than the critics and audience back made it appear. Of course with the Snob talking over it it's funny but I believe that this at least deserves a chance, at least compared to "The Apple" and "Can't stop the Music".
The Apple - Seems pretty pointless, ugly and dated and I can guess why it was a flop. I would rather give the stage version a try. But it's cute to see how they thought 1994 would turn out.
Shock Treatment - A movie I already put on my Letterboxd watchlist because no matter if it's better or worse than "Rocky Horror Picture Show", it seems crazy enough and the music presented is catchy and stands out out of all the other reviewed musical movies where I forgot the songs not long after.
Can't stop the Music - Okay, this movie doesn't seem to have a point at all to me. Why was it made? They should have called it "Steve Guttenberg's quirky City Adventures" or something. And the music sounds horrible, the scenes were all so dull. Even that one "Married...with Children" Halloween episode including the Village People (okay, mostly their music) is way closer to the pop group. The least movie of this Musical March (in September) I would wanna experience.
