Top 5 Modern Movie Musicals

Top 5 Modern Movie Musicals

If there’s a genre of movie that always finds success it’s musicals. And it kinda makes sense. They’re the perfect escape from our everyday lives, because let’s be honest… we all need a little music sometimes.

For today's list we’re singing and dancing our way through our Top 5 Modern Movie Musicals.

Number 5 - Enchanted

Enchanted, on its surface, is one of the many films that fit the Disney musical tradition. However, this film gave us a story like no other. Enchanted parodies Disney’s cliches by placing an animated princess into the modern world. Yet, it maintains the heart of a Disney movie. We laugh as Patrick Dempsey is dragged through New York by this seemingly crazy singing woman, but beneath this comedy we’re given a heartwarming romance that’ll give us all a warm fuzzy feeling.

Number 4 - The Greatest Showman

The Greatest Showman embraces everything we love about musicals. It’s bold, colourful and full of hope. Hugh Jackman stands out as P.T. Barnum, singing and dancing his way through this entire film. Zach Effron returns to his musical roots and his connection with the high flying Zendaya adds a warm heart to the film's center. The Greatest Showman promotes love and acceptance above all else and we can’t help but get wrapped up in all of its warmth.

Number 3 - Rocketman

There’s no doubt that expectations for this Elton John biopic were high. Not only did Rocketman meet these expectations, it exceeded them. A film that's as outrageous as it is moving, Rocketman explores the highest highs and lowest lows of Elton John's career. This journey is paired perfectly with some of his most iconic songs, giving us a deeper appreciation of this amazing music legend and the life he has led.

Number 2 - Mamma Mia

ABBA are simply timeless, but the fact that a lot of us now associate Mamma Mia with the movie musical is a testament to how good this film is. Mamma Mia is a film that is so easy to love. Bringing a highly successful stage musical to the big screen is not an easy task, but Mamma Mia does it with ease. The cast is as iconic as its soundtrack and if you’re not belting out an ABBA classic, you’re laughing hysterically as you unravel this heartwarming mystery.

Number 1 - La La Land

If there’s one thing that musicals are good for, it’s a love story. After all, haven’t we all been so in love that we can't help but sing about it? At its core, La La Land is a timeless love story that will fill you with both hope and nostalgia. Yet, it is what surrounds this core that makes this film special. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are electric together. The soundtrack is beautifully crafted & the spectacle of Hollywood is on full display in this heartbreakingly relatable musical.
