Great films that you can watch that are under 100 minutes long. Not all masterpieces but all are highly recommended,…
Little Shop of Horrors
Don't feed the plants.
Seymour Krelborn is a nerdy orphan working at Mushnik's, a flower shop in urban Skid Row. He harbors a crush on fellow co-worker Audrey Fulquard, and is berated by Mr. Mushnik daily. One day as Seymour is seeking a new mysterious plant, he finds a very mysterious unidentified plant which he calls Audrey II. The plant seems to have a craving for blood and soon begins to sing for his supper.
you know what they say about capitalism, gentrification & man-eating plants... they're, uh... not great, bob. (alternate director's cut ending is some of the best action spectacle ever committed to film.)
Little Shop of Horrors is probably my favorite musical and this is coming from someone who doesn't like musicals (in general, there are always a few exceptions). My older sister was in a high school production so I remember a time where her taped performance and this movie were in constant rotation if she was in the living room, but surprisingly, her grumpy, mischievous and weird little sister didn't mind.
Last night I revisited the movie for the first time in many, many years and watching it on blu-ray was magnificent. The colors were brilliantly sharp and the director's cut is the movie that everyone should have been watching for all of these years. The original ending is a sight…
Viewed the director's Cut on Blu-ray
Ladies and gentlemen, If you consider yourself a musical fan and you haven't seen this movie, then you aren't a musical fan. It's just that simple. In my eyes at least, this is THE musical. Combining a fantastic story, wonderful and mesmerizing songs, perfect and charming characters, smooth and seamless pacing; It's all capped off with some of the best puppetry ever to grace the silver screen.
If you're looking for a roller-coaster of a good time, then look no further than Little Shop of Horrors.
The story follows Seymour, played by Rick Moranis, who is an employee in a local flower shop located in skidrow. The film takes an interesting turn as the…
The greatest remake ever.
The best Rick Moranis film there has been.
All other musicals pale into insignificance.
This ain't got nothing on Phantom of the Paradise or The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but neither does any other musical in existence.
"This is between me and the vegetable." - Seymour
Frankly, I've never much cared for musicals. Well regarded classics such as The Sound of Music and Singing in the Rain don't give me the magical feeling that I think they do for a lot of others. The genre has never really resonated with me, and in all honestly I didn't think I would ever really gel with a musical. That mindset changed a little when I saw The Rocky Horror Picture Show earlier this year. I didn't fall in love with it, but I appreciated the weird tone of it all. After watching Little Shop of Horrors, I am starting to think that maybe it is just the standard-fare of…
They may offer you fortune and fame
Love and money and instant acclaim
But whatever they offer you,
Don't feed the plants!
First time watch of the director's cut.
Little Shop of Horrors has been one of my favourite films for a long time but it was only recently seeing it onstage that gave me the kick in the pants I needed to finally watch the director's cut with the original ending. I already knew what the ending was (not only because it's the stage show ending which I've just seen) but actually seeing it in the continuity of the film is a different thing all together.
As much as I'm a sucker for happy endings (which I admit begrudgingly)…
Pretty good horror comedy musical, Little Shop of Horrors is a good film, but one that to be honest is a bit overrated, as the film has some merits and is certainly a fun experience, however the film is not as great as I’d expected it to be. I liked the film, and felt that Rick Moranis was very good here, and the film certainly had effective moments and good effects, but it’s not exactly what I’d call a classic. The film is entertaining, but unlike other horror musicals, this one seem a little lacking at times, and there never seems anything really going on to warrant its cult status. The film is a worthy addition, but it’s not as…
I got 40 minutes in this. I may try to finish it but I really really didn't like it. I expected so much from actors Rick Moranis and Steve Martin, Director Frank Oz, and Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman.
I had heard the original ending was better, but I had no idea it was so perfect.
One of those instances where the remake is superior to the original. And the director's cut actually enhances the movie.
Alan Menken shows again he is the master of the musical. Awesome practical effects, too and a terrific cast with cameos from John Candy & Bill Murray.
Simply put: an amazing film.
Maybe five minutes into the movie and I was already starting to debate whether or not this was a 5 star film. Then Steve Martin showed up.
Very much like Audrey II, I too need to be fed at all times
The movie is a science fiction comedy-horror musical that may have you thinking twice the next time you see a Venus fly-trap sitting around or looking at your over-grown lawn!
I was about 14 when this movie came out - loved it then, love it now. I cannot ever forget "Feed Me, Seymour" when I look at plants - I tend to think of this movie every single time and snicker with laughter about it.
recommend shit to me, please! esp. little known sleazy stuff
