    You like his singing and you know it.



    I loved Moulin Rouge. I was suprised Nicole Kidman could sing.

    Well so can Britney Spears till you see her mimeing it and realize they reworked her voice in a recording session.

    Ewan McGregor - He was pretty good
    John Lequizamo - Great as always
    Nicole Kidman - Her dying is the greatest part of the film!
    All in all - Once is enough, then you can change the channel and never watch it again. :happy:

    I love this movie, and wish I would watch it more often. I am in agreement with
    mini-rock and Eternal Padawan - Christian's rendition of "Your Song" is certainly
    my favorite part of the film.

    Spectacular Spectacular !

    I would also like to point out the brilliance of using Kylie Minogue AND Ozzy Osbourne as the Green Fairy. :happy:

    MacGregor's performance, boththe acting and the singing, made this film. His rendition of your song is better than elton johns ever was.

    This isn't the first time he's sang either. His portrayal of Iggy Pop in velvet goldmine was the only thing worth watching in that movie as well.

    Bah, I thought it was terrible. And yes, I have pretty much seen it all the way through. I hear people say "oh the movie is just too smart for you" when I understood the concept and all that garbage, I just didn't like it at all. Reworking other people's songs to fit your movie is not my idea of entertainment. And the plot wasn't too great, basic love story which could have been told better. It's funny that I know people who think this movie was life altering. I then rolled my eyes. Ewan had a decent voice and his acting was pretty good (as always) but that was about it. Just not my bag.

    Then someone tried explaining to me how it was really an indie movie that was picked up for release through a major studio but it was just that Baz Lerman (SP) had a ton of money so he could do what he wanted. Isn't that a bit hypocritical?

    edit: Oh and hearing the verse of "smells like teen spirit" reworked is reason enough why Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic should get control of the Nirvana stuff.

    It definitely wasn't for everyone. People I recommended it to either loved it or hated it. I think there's a point in the film where you realize it's a different kind of movie and you can either go "okayyyy..." and just see where it goes. Or you roll your eyes because it's not your typical ANYTHING. If I had bridled at it for even a moment, I think I wouldn't have liked it, so I can see MatBs POV. And once you make that choice, no amount of repeat viewings will make you switch from one category to the other. You will only see what you originally loathed or loved about it.

    ROLLO!
