I watched Dirty Dance, the Sound of Music, Mamma Mia, and Fiddler on the Roof on stage, and a few others as movie.
Dirty Dance is great for the dance, obviously. I happen to have a friend who is able to "fly" with her boyfriend, just like the end of that musical.
The Sound of Music is the movie that I watched the most times. Over 15 times, I guess. The songs are definitely classic. The storyline is also very impressive. There're not many movies that can cover so many things within one product: love, war, family, teenager problem, religion, politics, children, patriotism, and music!
Mamma Mia has both good songs and good dance. The songs are from 1970s, but I'm pretty sure they will stay for the next several decades.
Fiddler on the Roof is a masterpiece! I watched the movie several times before I watched stage product (although it's by a community theatre). The songs are so beautiful, also classic, for sure. There's amazing Ukrainian dance too. But what touched me most is the story, the history revealed, the personality and spirit of those characters. Besides enjoying the music and dance, I thought over from time to time about that history and the life of Jews of that time.
IMHO, operas belong to the era of a hundred years ago, when everything was slower than today and the upper class people had plenty of time to enjoy it. Musical appear to be an evolved version of classic opera. Will see...
