Yeah that's one of the best first-time musical views I've had this year.

At first I wasn't sure whether to include Disney films, but then thought what the hell, it's often the songs that makes them memorable.

just getting a list together - going for the obscure.

the discussion about various definitions of musical would seem to exclude things like Fantasia, which is on a lot of lists. That is, does the music have to be sung or can it be instrumental or danced?

Oh well, none of these will make the cut anyway so who cares if they fit the (still fuzzy) parameters?

I went back and forth on including Marx Brothers comedies, for instance, and read arguments in this thread for going either way. I decided to leave them in, along with a few other similar cases.

I’m not playing this round, but Oh! What a Lovely War would’ve scored high on my list as well.

I started this list weeks ago but got cranky with how things were going with my method (I use my Flickchart and the genre filter is a bit of a mess at the moment) and stopped fiddling with it. I never got back to it to clean it up so here is my list as it was https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/my+t ... es/zzzorf/. All ranked of course.

I am afraid musicals have always been among the genres that impressed me the least, but that is not to say there haven't been moments of brilliance.

My list: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls047685325/ (ranked)
Probably the genre with the most guilty pleasures for me.

Intentionally leaving out https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/ame ... the+woods/ since it's simply a filming of the original Broadway production, but it would be in my top 3 if I included it.

Bit later, but doing it now. No more submissions and changes allowed.

OP updated for the last time. If you're not listed correctly, NOW is the time to say so.

Average list length is 47. I'll be using a half life of 15.

Every movie in the top 100 has at least 3 votes. The top 150 has 11 movies with 2 votes. What do you guys prefer? 100 or 150?

I'm normally a 3-votes-or-more kind of guy, but given how much I love this genre and how little love it gets generally - and the relatively small number of lists - I wouldn't' be averse to a 2-vote minimum in this case if it could get us 150.

Also a 3 vote kind of guy/gal. But a longer list will also make people explore more film (as in the ongoing challenge) so that is also good. How high is the first 1-vote film?
