I like the technique used but we all know that the vocals didn't met the musical requirements. I still love musical movies though.

Despite the presence of interesting visuals, the magic and meaning of Fellini's seminal masterpiece (my all-time favorite movie, by the way) is missing amid forgettable songs and performances.

Ugh!

I cannot believe that the great Michael Tolkin had anything to do with this mess. (Apparently, he co-wrote the screenplay.) The only good thing about it was Kate Hudson's number, "Cinema Italiano." Yes, the term "neorealism" is misused, but it rhymes, so who cares? But if you've seen the trailers, you've basically seen that number. Not much of a story, dull musical numbers, and I didn't think the acting was so good. Oh well, not sure what I expected. I couldn't get into Marshall's "Chicago," either. And I generally love movie musicals.

I haven't yet seen "8 1/2" (I know, shame, shame), so I'm not sure exactly what relationship this film was supposed to bear to it. Straightforward musical adaptation? Parody? Oh well, it has motivated me to seek out the original sooner rather t...

An Enjoyable Mess

“Nine”, based on the Broadway play of the same name, can be described as an enjoyable mess. There are some amazing things about the film, yet there are some things that bring its buzz down. The unstoppable Daniel Day-Lewis plays Guido Contini, a film director who under pressure to write and direct a film in 10 days. It isn’t only the pressure of the film playing on his mental health, but also the relationships with the women in his life. His trials and tribulations with himself and his women are expressed through both the script and musical numbers. However, the two narrative forms collide in this film making the combination quite messy. The film could have been constructed in a way so that these two could have worked together to flow smoothly, but the way which director, Rob Marshall sep...

Succeeds some, but fails some too

Rob Marshall, director of the successful film version of the musical Chicago, tries to strike gold twice with his film adaptation of the musical Nine. Some things work, some things don't.

FIrst off, if you don't like musicals it's doubtful that you'll like Nine. It's not a happy story, though the film version isn't as dark as the stage version. It tells the story of Guido, a director desperately trying to find inspiration for his latest film but being haunted by the women of his past and present. As he did with Chicago, Marshall films the musical numbers as fantasies of the protagonist, and this is one area that's a little confusing. How could someone who's struggling to find inspiration and creativity imagine such extravagant and wonderful musical numbers? Though that is a gripe of mi...

The new trailer is pretty slick.  It is odd that DDL is in this.  Is he a musical lover?

Im anxiously awaiting this movie!
I heard that Penelope Cruz's character in the play does a naked trapeeze act, or something like that; Jane Krakowski (Jenna from 30 Rock) played her, & won a tony for it.
&im also interested in seing how Kate Hudson & Fergie will do with all the Oscar winners in it.

Oh, & another possible front runner for best pic is The Road. (even though the trailer sucked, the book is amazing, & they can't screw up the movie without angering a bunch of hardcore fans.)
