With Rock of Ages opening on Friday, I got to thinking about some of the more recent movie adaptations of musicals — those from 1980 on (sorry, Grease). Though there are purists who will always prefer Broadway, a lot of shows have inspired entertaining, sometimes even award-worthy, movies, like Hairspray, Chicago, and Dreamgirls.

Did you guys hear? The screen musical is back! Well, at least according to Hugh Jackman, who kicked off his Oscar ceremony musical medley on Sunday by talking about the box office success of Mamma Mia!.
I would love to see Mr. Jackman himself singing and dancing in the movies very soon, which got me thinking about musicals that should get a big-screen adaptation while the iron is apparently hot. I think Spring Awakening would be pretty great as a movie, and there's been some buzz for a while about getting Wicked on the big screen as well.
What musicals do you think would make good movies? And do you agree with Jackman that this is a trend worth rooting for?
Shoeaholic took a page out of the Dreamgirls costume book with her limelight-catching shimmery cocktail number. I love how the classic cut of the dress flatters her body, and the black fabric tones down the sequins so the look is totally glamorous. The silver and black shine of the shoes ties in well with the dress too!
Here's what she has on:
Congrats to Shoeaholic!

The Dreamgirls DVD features about a million extra things, including but not limited to: 12 extended and alternate scenes, the music video for Beyonce's "Listen" along with Beyonce's screen test for the film, a feature-length making-of documentary, Anika Noni Rose's audition, and "Steppin’ To The Bad Side" – the choreography audition. The film itself follows a trio of friends who hit it big as a girl group and then experience the highs and lows of fame and fortune. You may have heard that Jennifer Hudson won this year's Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her performance. Yet the tables may turn at the MTV Movie Awards, as she and Beyonce vie for Best Performance. I thought this movie was pretty good, though I maintain that Eddie Murphy gives the most amazing performance of all.
Two more great DVDs, so read more
