Singin’ in the Rain (1952) Movie Review

By: Alex Phuong (A Toast) –

This is one of the most iconic movies ever made.  The music is timeless, the romance is palpable, and there is a glorious feeling when it comes to being happy while singin’ and dancin’ in the rain!

A Toast!

It is hard to describe and praise one of the most famous movies ever made.  Gene Kelly and the late Debbie Reynolds share an on-screen chemistry that simply lights up the screen.  The film itself is set during the era in film history as motion pictures transitioned to “talkies.”  Films made during the 2010s, like The Artist (2011) and La La Land (2016), attempt to pay an homage to the supposedly “great” films from cinema’s past, and Singin’ in the Rain remains a classy musical full of style and grace.

Verdict

Singin’ in the Rain might not have received an Oscar nomination for “Best Picture,” but it is a timeless motion picture about cinema itself!
