Singin' in the Rain

Singin' in the Rain ★★★★★

August 2022
Scavenger Hunt #89
TASK #6: A musical film!

You're probably thinking right now that I should be ashamed of myself that it took me this long to finally see this for the first time, and let me tell you something... you're right, I am. The tagline on the poster says, "What a glorious feeling," and boy, did I definitely feel glorious sitting through this utterly lovely dose of pure cinematic magic. Singin' in the Rain is often considered to be one of the greatest movie musicals of all time, if not the absolute greatest, and you bet your sweet ass that it lives up to such a mighty reputation. The song and dance numbers are as perfect as they can possibly be, abundant with dazzling choreography and rich, vibrant colors throughout. The triumphant trio of Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds, and Donald O’Connor absolutely fires on all cylinders here. It's not just a wonderful film but also an achingly beautiful, sincere love letter to the power of cinema, and I can't ask for a better combination than that. What a picture.
