    If you're looking for a really feel-good movie with outstanding singing and dancing, I recommend The Greatest Showman, starring Hugh Jackman and Michelle Williams. Hollywood is a pretty jaded place these days, and rarely produces a movie like this one anymore. I guarantee you'll be entertained. By the way, the film begins with something truly unique: Hugh Jackman and the film's director, Michael Gracey, actually take three minutes to thank the audience for coming to see the film on the big screen. When's the last time that happened? Umm..never!

    For more information, you can read a very positive review here. But beware: there are a few mild spoilers mentioned, so if you don't want too much given away, just go see the movie :)

    Here's the trailer.

    It's at the top of my viewing list. It isn't playing near me, so I may have to wait till it comes out on video.

    Another film I want to see, just for the "stranger than truth" factor, is "Winchester." I know the tale is trumped up baloney, but it looks to be very interesting. I've toured the Winchester House several times, and felt some strange things there. Mostly, all I felt was sorrow for the lonely, slightly crazy, much too wealthy Sarah Winchester.

    Thank you for the recommendation. We look forward to seeing a good movie. Hopefully it will run at my favorite local theater.

    The soundtrack is fantastic. I left the theater and bought the soundtrack on the way home. I saw it early on when it first came out. It was the first time in ages that the audience applauded when the movie was over.

    I have a movie pass and have seen then movie 5 time already. I keep bring someone who has not seen it yet. It is still wonderful after five times. I find myself singing the songs during the day.

    I've got a long weekend coming up and we haven't been to a movie in the theater for awhile. I wasn't aware of this movie and you've already seen it five times!

    TUG's a great resource!

    Come back and let us know how you liked it. If you like Broadway style musicals you will love it.

    Nooooooooo. I forgot about all the things that had to be done this long holiday weekend that couldn't be put off. I'm hopeful next weekend will be a relaxing weekend with an opportunity to go next Saturday.

    We saw it last week. We usually try and go in the afternoons to avoid the crowds. Unfortunately, it was only playing in the only iMAX theater at the mall and it was about $15/ea.

    On the good side they only sold 2 tickets for the show...OURS! We had the entire theater to ourselves so no distractions.

    ..and yes, it was a great experence!

    Our son, DIL and two little granddaughters came to Florida to visit us the first week of January. I took our DIL who is a music teacher to see this movie. We both loved it and enjoyed having a day out with just the two of us. My husband was a little jealous as he loves musicals too. He and I are seeing it tomorrow at the discount theater close to us. I will enjoy seeing it a second time.
