Pssst, want to check out Evita in our new look?

It's not on the IMDB Musical list because it only has a 6.3 rating; a 7.6 rating is required to hit #50. Such a jump is never going to happen for such an old movie.
I hate musicals and I hate Madonna, but I loved this movie. Srsly, the thing works.
Yesterday I watched The House of the Spirits that it's supposed to be set in Chile, but looks more like set in a fantasy of what Mexico would look like according to an American old lady. That movie is well intentioned about the coup d'état here, but I just couldn't take it seriously. Evita on the other hand gets as Argentinian as it is, and that's cool, not lazy, and appreciated.
What can I say? Cool songs, sets, cinematography and directing (if you can get good acting from Madonna, you must be one hell of a director, just saying). Imo this and The Producers are the best musicals I've seen so far.
What a film! I loved every minute of it. I've postponed watching it for a long time thinking that it'd be mediocre, but it turned out to be absolutely beautiful and powerful. All musical lovers should watch it.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
