    Moulin Rouge!


    Best. Movie. Ever. :D

    Now, this is one that not everybody is going to enjoy. You either like it or you don't. I happen to adore it! [face_love] It's one of those movies that I just never get tired of.

    It's the story of a man named Christian who moves to Paris to write. He befriends a whole bunch of weird people, and ends up at the Moulin Rouge, where he falls in love with the star, Satine. The rest is the story of their forbidden love. Wonderful, wonderful movie.

    Christian, played by the one and only Ewan McGregor. [face_love]

    And this is Satine. She doesn't always look so unhappy.

    I love this movie for so many reasons. First of all, the story is awesome. I love it. The beginning of the movie moves pretty quick, but after that, things slow down so you can pick things up. :p And the music! Omg, the music! [face_love] It's what really defines this film. It's fantastic. And me being the music buff that I am, that's what really drew me in. It's so cool because they take some older songs ("Your Song", by Elton John for example) and redo them to fit in the story (And Ewan sings that in the movie. Great job!). It's got such a unique feel to it, I just can't help but love it! :)

    Moulin Rouge is actually the third movie in Baz Lurhman (And I'm sure I spelled that wrong)'s "Red Curtain Trilogy". The first in the series was 'Strictly Ballroom' (which isn't a bad movie. I've seen bits & pieces), the 2nd was 'Romeo + Juliet', and 'Moulin Rouge' completes it. I heard that on an interview once. He was saying they're 3 different stories, told using different methods (dance, dialouge, and song). I just thought that was an interesting fact. :)

    Hm...what else can I say about my favorite movie, other than I love it so, so, so much? Um....I really can't think of anything else. But I think I may go watch it now! :D

    It is a great movie. The first time I saw it in the theater, I came in and set down on about the 6th row, and by the end, I was all the way at the back of the theater, because the movie had blown me away.
