My Top 6 Musical Film Recommendations for Netflix #StreamTeam

You'll have seen me posting before that I'm loving my subscription to Netflix.  It really is the best thing since sliced bread in my opinion. As I live in the middle of no-where and my internet connection is not great that limits my options but Netflix and my Apple TV are still coming up trumps and even better when the kids lose the little silver remote control (why is the Apple TV remote control so very tiny?) I can stll watch via AirPlay from my iPad to the Apple TV.

Or what you often find me doing is watching programmes (Gossip Girl currently in case you were wondering) and moving from room to room doing the housework, tidying, washing etc and I take my iPad with me and then when I'm ready to move to the lounge I can just stop play on my iPad and put it on the Apple TV and it is all so clever as it knows exactly where I stooped it and it just picks it up and plays from there - brilliant!

This month I thought I'd share with you my top 6 music film picks that we have watched in the last three months. All our family love a good musical film and here are our recommendations, in reverse order -

In 6th place - Pop Star - I just watched this last week with my girls and it is a sweet movie. It won't change your world but the lead singer has a nice voice and it has some good topics in it for conversation starters - like people taking advantage of you and who your loyalty should be to.

5th place is Cadillac records. This film was a bit slower than I might have liked but the tunes are really soulful and it was great to see a little slice of history and to learn how some of the big stars like Chuck Berry and Etta James were discovered.

4th place goes to an iconic movie - The Blues Brothers. The music in this is superb and the film is a lot of fun, this takes me right back to being a kid and I think it is one you either love or hate.

3rd place is for Burlesque with Cher and Christina Aguillaria. not one for the kids as you don't really want to encourage them to think about this as a career option but I enjoyed this film and of course the singing is fantastic.

2nd place is Coyote Ugly, which is one of my favourite films with some great singing and a sweet love story running through it.

And in 1st place it has to be Whoopi Goldberg in Sister Act. I kid you not when I say that my husband has watched this in excess of 500 times, he absolutely loves it and when feeling down it is his go-to film. He also seems to have converted all my kids as often I return from a night out and find the four of them watching this or the sequel!

I hope you like our picks and might want to try out one of the movies on Netflix.

Disclosure: I have received a years free membership to Netflix and a free device to become part of the #Streamteam. They have not instructed me what to write and I remain honest, as always.
