    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.

    So did I. April 10 will be an exciting day as that is also the release date for Season 3 of Outlander. (The only show I watch on Television, huge book fan that now loves the series.)

    I went to Costco this morning to buy the DVD. They didn't have it. Hmm. Seems they are cutting back on the DVD selection at Costco (I'm told online purchases are making it a non-starter.) The only movie available there were the latest Star Wars film, and a couple of kid movies. I just bought the Blu-Ray from Amazon. (So I guess this is another opportunity for Amazon to deliver me something I couldn't buy locally. So it goes.)

    So no, I haven't yet seen it. But soon! :D

    Had wanted to see this on the big screen, but never made it. Saw your post yesterday morning and watched the movies On-Demand last night. We really enjoyed this!

    Thanks for reminding me.

    Finally, a really long time coming, but YES, I finally saw this outstanding movie! I bought the video, converted it to watch on my Samsung tablet, and watched it twice on my trip to Hawaii in May - once on the plane flight over, and once on the plane flight back. I have a copy of it saved onto my laptop, and every so often I will randomly drop into the movie at some point and watch for a few minutes. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. If anyone on the planet hasn't seen it yet, you're missing something really nice. The fact that it's based on a real life situation makes it even better.

    (Sorry for the long delay in replying to this post, but I kept forgetting to mention that I'd seen it. Now, what movie should I see next?)
