Let’s be real, last night most people were watching The Sound of Music remake, not X-Factor, Glee or Grey’s Anatomy. This was going to be a live thing with Carrie Underwood and Vampire Bill. Honestly, I love the original so seeing this done a different way was very interesting. Obviously Carrie Underwood doesn’t hold a candle to Julie Andrews, let’s be real right now. Julie Andrews is a fucking legend and so is Carrie Underwood in her own right, she just isn’t an actress. I will say that Carrie did hold her own as an actress!
One thing that I hated was how out of order all of the songs were, I realize they couldn’t do half of the shit that was done in the movie because it was all on a stage rather than an actual set. The kids were awesome, the Von Trapp boys were still gay as ever which was perfect casting! Then came Vampire Bill. Vampire Bill was still Vampire Bill in this movie, same voice, same stone face, same all that bullshit. Vampire Bill should not have been the lead male, mistake!
All and all though I would give it a solid B, the singing was great, the acting was alright, and the casting was pretty good. I just wish they didn’t make shit so out of order!
