Movies That Should Be Made Into Musicals

Pic: Gladiator (of course), from 4th "B"

Johnny Wright of our pal YesButNoButYes blog suggests that some movies should really be made into musicals. He's given a lot of thought about it, and has written a post about Ten Films That Should Be Broadway Musicals (including potential songs for each of them). For example:

10. Gladiator - I think the song Are You Not Entertained? could be a potential showstopper. There should be a page taken out of the Lion King's book with the way they have dancers as animals. That way, when Clay Aiken as Maximus is in the arena, he can battle the dancing tigers and bears and no actual tigers and bears will be hurt. I look forward to the ballad, On My Signal, Unleash Hell.

Other potential songs:
Busy Little Bee
I Like The Blood
I Can't Wait For the Afterlife!

Link - Thanks Johnny!

We have a guy from Namibia, a rapper called Ees, who together with his buddies made a spoof of Gladiator called Naminator (a play on the name of our country - though I am sure I didn't really have to explain that on a website like this one). A lot of the humour will probably go over the heads of people who don't live here or have not been exposed to some of our cultural nuances, but it is still an exceptionally funny movie that I would recommend to anyone. The clip was on YouTube for a time but otherwise you can probably get more information from his website (don't want to post a link here in case that is frowned upon).
