    The revival of the Musical

    With great, iconic musicals like Grease in the late 1970s, would it be possible to create such a hit musical now? How would modern music like house music be incorporated into such a film? What do you think a modern musical would look like?

    • Hamilton by Lin Manuel Miranda just won a ton of Tony awards and it features hip hop and rap. House Music might be a little different since it doesn't often feature lyrics and musical theater is dependent on words by definition - but I would like to see if someone argue the house music could become material for a musical... – Kevin 4 years ago

    • I think now with the remake of Rocky Horror Picture Show, as well as the huge success of Hamilton, musicals definitely have been revived and have become hits. I think now musicals speak to a specific genre or time period in order to be successful, their flavor is specific as well as culturally relevant. Even High School Musical created such unproar! I think if done correctly, marketed correctly, and the scoring was impeccable the musical would definitely be adopted by large demographics. – amirnaveh 4 years ago

    Wonderful read. Tarantino is arguably one of the greatest directors in cinematic history. Really enjoyed the part where you defend his borrowing of cult films, of course a director will borrow something they love from someone!

    First of all, hats off to ya for defending such a hated prequel trilogy. This has to be THE strongest argument and defense I have ever seen for anything period. It made me a believer, I was already accepting of the prequels, but after reading into your defense, I am much more compassionate towards them.

    Enjoyed this in depth analysis of a Harry Potter villain, if you would. Draco Malfoy is a much more complex character than first perceived. Thank you for your interesting perspective of such character.
