The Sound of Music is called a classic and one of the best films ever made. However to me this movie is terrible, it comes from the time of musicals which are too overdone, showboating, and drag. The plot is actually quite interesting since it is based in WW2 and escaping the Nazis. It is also based on a true story which makes the plot even more incredible. The plot cannot make up for the schmaltzy musical number, dancing, and flow of the movie. If you enjoy musicals then this is the film for you. I’m personally going to hope I never see The Sound of Music again and would much rather watch a War movie if I wanted to get my WW2 history fix.
Bottom Line (Warning Contains Spoilers)
Okay this film is a classic, but honestly I don’t care for the music. The film just focuses on a family trying to escape the Germans during WW2. Okay now I will say the true story is quite amazing and great idea for a plot. I just wish it wasn’t a musical.
