Uh oh! Maybe they SHOULD have given them what they wanted! Last night's broadcast of the Sound of Music LIVE was met with mixed reviews, Carrie Underwoo… Read more…
This was basically a Broadway show on TV - well-produced. However, the inevitable comparison with the 1960's movie leads me to opine that it is not as heart-warming. You could almost believe the 1960's movie was based on reality but not this show: first, a mother superior who was Black in 1930's Austria; then, nuns with full face makeup; followed by untrained novices who hit all the right notes at once. The accents also didn't jive with the nasality of some of the children so un-Austrian that it took away from the suspension of disbelief. It was well-made but not in any way better than the original and, if anything, even more cheesy and unbelievable. The reality, for those who wish to investigate, is that Maria was a plain country girl who was a tough disciplinarian and the Captain was in a downward career spiral anyway as Austria, a land-locked country, no longer had much of a Navy since losing the Adriatic port of Trieste. The Von Trapps now have a lodge in New England where they ply their name.
Perez why are you so amazed by this? Of course they would have preferred someone else. They should have went with a a well known Broadway star.
Why not an unknown, and not necessarily an American? And I agree with Sean about the make-up and the accents - and along the same lines was Carrie Underwood with the perfect, unnaturally white veneers.
I loved the fact that Carrie is not an actress. She seemed to warm up a bit as it went on. Anne Hathaway's voice is nowhere near as good as Carrie's. I enjoyed it for what it was. A LIVE play on television. It's a great story and I thought it was done very well. Kudos ot Carrie!!!
I did like Carrie… but if you're asking who else could have done it I have to say I would like to see Laura Osnes as Maria someday
Re: Sean – That was kind of the point. They weren't taking the film and turning it into a live stage production. The stage version of it is the original, it came out six years before the film and is very different from the film. They stressed that fact on multiple occasions before it aired so I'm not sure why so many people are still bitching about this version in comparison to the film.
Carries sucks in the role
Carrie was horrible
anne hathaway I guess they dont realize no one would have watched. at least with carrie 19 million people bothered to watch. nice how they turn on carrie when its over.
A tabloid kind of way? Shame on them for being so snobby! I don't think her acting was good enough for this role. She definately had the voice.
Anne Hathaway would have kicked ass too. Plus she has acting experience.
anne Hathaway do they have ears ? yes she can sing but its not a noise I ever want to hear again…
Re: shaygirl1309 –
shaygirl1309 , Anne Hathaway doing a live t.v. version of Sound of Music is a step down for her because she is a A-list movie star. I am sure the producers went after Hathaway and she turned them down.
IMHO, the live broadcast should be taken for what it is, a broadway play made for television and not a remake of the movie, two very different things. carrie underwood definitely needs to hone her acting skills more, but in fairness, what she did was no small feat and we should give credit where credit is due. her voice was amazing as usual and she does have that innocence which is needed for that role. i think she's one of a few artists who could have pulled off 3 hours of live singing on national television without the aid of autotune. while some may want anne hathaway for the role, i disagree. her role as fantine in the movie version of les miz was heart wrenching but her singing leaves a lot to be desired. i dont think many broadway producers would hire her in a broadway musical because her vocals just dont make the cut, IMHO. she was even humble enough to ask not to be compared to patti lupone or lea salonga. to quote "First of all, it could never have compared with Patti LuPone or Lea Salonga or even my mom, really: powerful singers with big, beautiful voices. I knew I couldn't offer that, but I also knew it wouldn't be appropriate. If I went for sounding beautiful while looking like this tragic wreck, it would be ridiculous." carrie underwood mimicking julie andrew would not only have looked ridiculous but would also be almost sacrilegious and certainly disrespectful to the iconic role. carrie underwood is not julie andrews and i dont see anything wrong with that.
I loved every minute of it Carrie did a fabulous job
Carrie sucked balls!!! Of course she can sing. But she just sounds so nasally all the time. And obviously she cannot act to save her life! I'm curious why she took the role? Was she a huge fan of the movie growing up? Highly doubt it. Oh wait…. I bet it's because she's trying to keep up with Miss Swift. She figured, ok, my concerts aren't selling out like they should be and I'm getting sued and I'm getting caught up in an emotional affair with Brad Paisley and I'm getting bad press, and Taylor Swift just keeps winning award after award and selling out. Oh shucks me And before any of you send me responses of hate, listen up. Carrie is way out of Taylor's league and always will be. Instead of finishing school in which she majored in journalism, she thought, oh, let me see if I can get on American Idol? Well, she did and won the hearts of America. So some credit is due there. But she didn't always have her heart set on singing. In fact on American Idol I remember she was asked by the judges, what will you do if you don't win. She said she would finish school and become a journalist. Now she wants to take on acting roles? Please. INDECISIVE. She doesn't know what she wants to do. Because the only talent she has is singing. That's it. She's boring and doesn't have a personality. She has a reputation for being rude.
Taylor on the other hand has always stayed true to herself and set out to do what she always wanted to do and on her terms. She can obviously write AND sing. For all the critics out there who say, oh, she can't sing. Yes she can. If she really couldn't sing, she wouldn't be making record breaking albums! She can sing. She can play and of course write music. It's what she's always done. And she can also act and has a ton of personality. She's very animated. She gives great interviews. Carrie on the other hand… mmm…. nope. She loses there as well. She's dull in interviews and just seems fake. How much you want to bet that she and Kimberly Williams Paisley are NOT friends?
What is happening this summer??
