It's also somewhat of an indication that at least for this poll, people stuck to the big classics rather than come up with obscure forum favorites.
By my count, 21 films with less than 400 checks have made it into the top 150 (so far), including some with less than 100 checks. I think some of them would qualify as obscure forum favorites.

Obscure and stupid fact: the US government defines "White" has a person with European, Middle Eastern, or North African descent.

I'm glad to see Chicago going up - it gets an unfairly hard time. I caught it on TV a couple of years ago and loved it this time. The style, energy, and wit is fantastic; it could almost be a Bob Fosse film.

I genuinely had no idea that Tsai made musicals. That has really surprised me.

The Jungle Book and The Muppets Movie as new entries: yay, inner child FTW. I love Moana too, the songs are irresistible.

I mentioned upthread that kid/family musicals were doing quite well, and indeed that continues to be borne out - that more than anything else is why a lot of the Hollywood classics are dropping; when this poll was done before I guess less people voted for animated stuff or the more youth-oriented live-action films like Grease. Makes me glad I didn't put any animated stuff on my list, none of the ones I like really needed the help. I guess for me films like Pinocchio, Bambi, Fantasia etc simply don't register in the mind as "musicals" even if they clearly are just as much so as many primarily comedy or drama live action films that just have a couple of songs. And I'm not much of a fan of recent (by which I mean post-1960) Disney, and the two films I might have put on my list both did very well without me (one hasn't shown up yet so top 27 at the least).

Have you seen any Tsai films? If so, they are in exactly the same style, but with sudden entries of song and dance numbers - just a few in each of these however, which is why I didn't vote for them. Perhaps I should have?

That makes them so interesting though. But yeah, think late 90s, early 2000s Tsai. Lately his style is pretty different (not for the better).

I would definitely recommend any Tsai from that period. What Time is it There is actually likely my least favorite of this period, but yes, imagine that film but with sudden song and dance. Pretty absurd, but that is what makes it work.

This is probably my favorite of his musical numbers:

In reading through the conversation about what constitutes a "musical," I realize that this category may be the toughest of any to define, given the wide variety of films that have been considered and voted for.

Just because a film features someone playing music, singing or dancing to a song, is that enough?

I didn't vote in this poll, though my love of musicals goes back to my childhood when I saw so many sitting on the couch watching them with my mom.

Of course in those days, "musical" meant classic Hollywood song and dance movie mostly from the late 40's on through the early 60's, and often included adaptations to film from the stage. It expanded from there back into the 30's, as well as forward into the 70's and beyond, as I continued to get older. And as the classic "Hollywood musical" began to die out, the genre was already being re-invented and extended to involve different kinds of music, film approaches, and film structures.

But in defining what makes a "musical" rather than some other kind of film featuring music in some way, some parameters need to be created, and in fact, some already exist that come from musical theater.

For example, there is already a separate category for "concert" films, and documentaries about music and musicians, like Straight No Chaser (a great one about Thelonious Monk), though as with so many other genres, there are cases where the categories blur. Stop Making Sense, for example, has characteristics of a concert or studio session, a documentary, and also something that was created as a musical film, though it stops short of being a "musical" in my estimation.

It is somewhat easy to create a definition for "musical" if we go back to the first ones in the 30's, until we realize that the classic musicals that came afterward operate somewhat differently in terms of the way music functions in those films.

One thing seems clear to me. For a film to qualify as a musical, there must be a good amount of music throughout that is central to the core of the film, without which the film would not really hold up. And while that is also true of films featuring musical performances (like Fados, a recent favorite among those), in musicals, the music also functions as part of the storyline, much the way dialogue or the spoken word does in other films.

That being said, Does a film like The Harder They Come fit? There is plenty of music throughout, and quite a bit of it is the music of Jimmy Cliff, who is also the film's leading actor, though many of the songs serve in ambient support of the story rather than at the center. A much clearer case in this regard might be a film like Inside Llewyn Davis, where the main character is a musician, but the songs, themselves, are not driving the story. And where does a film like Nashville fit into this?

As much as I like Tsai's Wayward Cloud, and its musical numbers, how much a part of the film narrative are they?

Going much further back, in consideration of "musical" criteria, does a film like Fantasia qualify? And if so, perhaps these seminal films involving music should be considered when creating the definition of a musical. If Fantasia is considered a musical, why not the "symphonic" Tree of Life?

"If X, then why not Y" really is the death of these polls. The slippery slope is often cited as a fallacy, but clearly that doesn't mean it's false or non-existent.

Yeah. Ultimately it doesn't matter too much unless people start campaign-voting films that they know are borderline or worse cases, and I haven't seen that here. Some of the films at the bottom, and even a few in the middle will be films that there's disagreement on as to their genre-correctness, but the top part of the list will at the very least be films that nearly everybody agrees qualify - whether they like them or not. Fellini called Satyricon science fiction and some of his fans treat it as such, but it's never going to appear anywhere near the top of an SF poll.

Just a little aside - there are FIVE, count 'em, FIVE live-action or mostly live action musicals or music dramas playing in the cinemas here as I write this -

A Star is Born
Bohemian Rhapsody
Anna and the Apocalypse
Vox Lux
Mary Poppins Returns
(opens tonight)

And Green Book is about a jazz pianist though there isn't a lot of performance in the film.

Probably not unprecedented but certainly I don't remember the last time there was such a wealth of music stuff in local cinemas, in a less-than-sophisticated area like where I live.

Because Americans love their musicals? In Norway we have made ...4 ...in total.

Like western and film noir this is quite an US-centric genre.
A little correction to that - besides the really obvious elephant in the room (India - where musicals were popular right from the beginning of the sound era, just as they were in the US), there have been several countries where musicals were either a dominant genre for a time (Egypt and Hong Kong) or at least had fairly significant popularity at various periods (China, Japan, France, UK, Iran, Mexico). And of course Pakistan and Bangladesh follow India's musical lead to a large extent. It only seems US-centric because most of us don't like and/or haven't seen much from Bollywood, and the Egyptian and HK musicals remain fairly obscure, especially the former. Certainly there have been a larger number of countries that have made impacts on the genre than there are with westerns, which have never really been large parts of any national cinemas outside of the US, Italy, Mexico and - if we're stretching - Germany and Spain.

maybe the best known entered the list at #83. and there's grace chang's films. her songs were featured in tsai's the hole. and tsui hark ofc. even johnnie to made one :lol: fwiw indians don't consider bollywood films 'musicals.' all bollywood films have songs. this list is somewhat disappointing having obvs many voters who don't like musicals at all -- not unlike the westerns list y'all made back when i first signed up :think:

I've only voted for two asian musicals. Dong and Sell Out! (both Malaysia). Otherwise I have only voted for a russian long one and a norwegian short one outside of UK/US.

Lagaan I didn't even consider as it is a sports film. The second half of it is literally one cricket match. So if there is any musical numbers (can't remember any) it's substansially less than 50% of it.

Well sure, I know of some, but it's hardly a constant stream of films or a real niche. I myself entered Perhaps Love, but clearly that one didn't make it. Could be that it was a real thing in 50s or 60s HK cinema, I haven't seen many HK films from that era. I did see The Love Eterne, but that felt more like work rather than pleasure.

I've seen a fair share of HK films but can't remember many musicals. What am I missing?
Hmm it's mainland (not HK) but Song at Midnight springs to mind.

Yep, it was a 50s-60s thing, killed off for the most part when martial arts films started to dominate around 1965. Egyptian cinema has a ton of musicals from the 40s through the mid 70s also, which is why I suggested that the genre was a major element in their cinemas for a time; not sure you can say that about too many other countries, e.g. France which has had a lot of musicals over time but never as a really dominant genre from what I can see.

Goodbye, Dragon Inn
What time is it there
The River
Vive L'Amour
Rebels of Neon God
I Don't Want to Sleep Alone

from Tsai. But I don't remember any songs and dance in any of them (except may be songs in TV in the I Don't want to Sleep Alone. I recognized the songs because its in my native tongue)

Swing Time is #17

Is it possible something like DDLJ would be in the top 10?
