Movies and music go hand in hand. It's no coincidence that a good movie soundtrack can become nearly as successful as the film that it came from. "Saturday Night Fever", "Pulp Fiction" and most recently Disney's "Frozen" are all perfect examples of this. If you're an X-Factor fan, you'll almost certainly have heard music from movies used during the dramatic parts, and you may not even have realised it.
Netflix has a whole host of musical treats for the entire family, so in this post I'm going to be looking at some of the standouts that the family are really enjoying.
With Lillibug, as we've stated before, she's in a serious Disney phase (one I hope she doesn't grow out of!). She loves getting her rolling pin from her toy kitchen and using it as a microphone to sing along with her favourite Disney tunes. At the moment, she's really into "Tangled", probably because she can now pronounce Rapunzel's name. This film has some songs that fit right in with the Disney classics of the nineties. The other one she's really getting a kick out of is "Lilo and Stitch" which features a lot of Elvis Presley songs, much to the delight of her grandaddy! Plus, it's any excuse for me to introduce her to Disney because I'm such a huge fan myself!
When I asked hubby what he was liking he said that he is really into his documentaries, and Netflix has a ton of great ones to choose from. He's also big into his music and when asked, he said that he really liked "Beware of Mr Baker", about legendary drummer Ginger Baker. He also recommended Nick Broomfield's "Kurt and Courtney" which is about the rise and fall of Kurt Cobain, and the conspiracy theories surrounding his death. Light viewing!
So those are the Netflix musical choices that are doing the rounds in our house lately. What about you, what are you watching?
