The movie sucked. Yep, it did. And even with all the buzz, the songs weren't that good either.
Until this happened.
Yeah, the movie still blows. But there's something about High School Musical On Stage that saved Disney's sorry excuse for a movie. This even got me to download (illegally) the whole damn soundtrack album! What has got into me? Or maybe the question is, what mojo has Stages and Trumpets Playshop conjured that's making all this noise(LSS in my head)?
No no no.......... O__O' lol... waw I didn't know there is a filipino version of HSM... LOL... I've never seen the first movie yet but I think (if I catch it and not doing anything at that time) I'll get to see HSM2. I've only been to the theatre and watch a play once, it was way back when I was still there... I can't even remember what it was about but I know that it was a good show and a nice experience.
ARE YOU FRIGGIN KIDDING ME I LOVED HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL TO PIECES! Seriously. I even bought the DVD online, it's region 1, and I paid for twice of how much it runs in MusicOne nowadays. I'm over the whole HSM LSS now, but I still believe that the people who didn't like it are either (1) theater elitists whose highest standards are not met by HSM, or (2) wounded adults who have had uninteresting high school lives. heheh
wow.. great commentary! This is my first time here.. and i can say, ang galing ng pagka interpret mo sa HSM on Stage! I love HSM kahit na 16 na'ko. Haha. No choice kasi sa sister ko na paulit ulit ang panonood nito last summer.. (halos araw araw). It's great to watch shows that encourage youths and kids to show their extraordinary talents, be it singing, dancing, or even playing the cello. Galing nyo po! Galing pa ng boses. More power to you.
Haha susubaybayan ko po ang mga next nyong posts. Kakaiba ka! Vlogger! ;) Ililink kita para hindi ako malost track.
great video blog, cokskiblue. :) i didn't pay much attention to the movie version. i love musical motion pictures such as panthom of the opera and moulin rouge, but i wasn't entertained with this one but hearing you talk about the stage play, well, i'm quite convinced you indeed had a great time. keep vlogging! :D
Juice is right, 'guilty pleasure' ang HSM for me. I do realize how CHEESY the plot is, syempre Disney eh, goody-goody masyado. And yes, the songs are cheesy as well, pero wala eh, maganda talaga yung mga songs, no matter how cheesy they are.
Given known fact ito for fans, pero I'm not sure if you've heard of it, given na hindi ka fan ng movie: Zac Efron used a ghost singer (actually, blended voice) sa HSM1. That's why sa concert series nila sa US, yung totoong singer ang kasama, si Drew Seeley at hindi si Z.Efron. Pero sa HSM2 (malapit na! hahaha, excited..), Zac Efron used his own voice already, na wala nang ka-blend na ibang boses, which is noticeable, if you'd compare his songs sa HSM1 and the new song from HSM2 that has been released already..
my kids watched the show at the meralco theater, some of their friends were in the cast. i would have watched it, too, if i was not busy at that time. from what i heard from my kids--it was fun, talent-filled. the movie version? i also liked it. it's clean fun--we should have more of this types of movies.
High School Musical (original) is the best thing that happened to tv. Zac Efron is so so hot and Vanessa is just gorgeous. The songs are amazing and so is the choreography. It was just phenomenal. Cheesy as it may go but people all over the world love it. I can watch the movie over and over again. Can't wait for HSM3.
