Judas Priest 'Unleashed In The East'
Okay… I have a dilemma. I’m asking for your assistance and I need answers by tomorrow afternoon.
A friend of mine recently, and against her better judgment, went to see the film Dreamgirls. She loved it!
The songs are, for the most part, stand-alone. They don’t perpetuate the dialogue… Until two songs do just that.
That is the main reason I HATE MUSICALS! I don’t want songs perpetuating the dialogue between characters. Honestly, when was the last time you broke out into song to express yourself to someone else or a group of people?
It just doesn’t happen in everyday life unless you spend most of your time in a straightjacket and padded room.
During Dreamgirls my friend told me about 2 songs that DID perpetuate dialogue among the characters. Her first thought… “Eugene would hate this.”
And for some reason, she wants me to see Dreamgirls. She told me that she didn’t really want to see it, but after she got through the first 45-mintues her mind had been changed.
I’ve been told to research this film to see if I truly want to see it. She seems to think that if I give it a chance, I may just like it.
I’m on the fence folks and I need your help. If you’ve seen it, leave a comment or do what everyone seems to do instead, send me an email.
She’s always had solid recommendations, but I’m just not feeling good about seeing Dreamgirls. I don’t want to piss her off if I’m not feeling the same thing about the flick.
Sorry about the shortness of this update. It’s been a little difficult finding the time to write and watch my Netflix stuff. I have Black Dahlia, Flyboys, The Guardian, and a Law & Order disc from season one.
It may have taken me almost 20 years, but I’m finally getting on board with Law & Order.
