Movie: Sound of Music: the Musical
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5
Genre: Life, classic
Series or set: Musical
Primary actors: Carrie Underwood, Stephen Moyer
Length: Approximately three hours
Based on: The classic movie with Julie Andrews – but I think this is the Broadway version?
Time period: 1930s
Year it came out: 2013
My overall opinion: I did quite enjoy this movie! I went in not being quite sure what I should be expecting, but it was a good way to spend my three hours! I watched the TV musical, but it’s coming to DVD at some point. Carrie Underwood was a lovely (though young) Maria, and her singing voice! Oh I loved it. She did a good job with the songs, though I think that no one can ever beat Julie Andrews. The head nun was a black woman, which is entirely inaccurate for the time in history, and for the movie in general – it threw me off. However, she could sing and very well! The kids were all cute and lovable and could sing. All in all? I did enjoy seeing this, and I am not opposed to watching it again someday, even though I didn’t love it.
