Corps as Movies

Recommended Posts

Forgive me if this has been done before, but it's the off-season, and I'm bored. So, if you were to compare a Corps to a movie, which movie would it be...

Blue Knights- "Donnie Darko"

SCV- "On the Waterfront" (not just because they did music from that in 1997)

Phantom- "The Pianist"

Blue Devils- "Casino" or "The Godfather" (once again, not just because they played the music in 2006)

Velvet Knights (old school version)- any Mel Brooks movie

Crown- the Avengers franchise

Bluecoats- "A Clockwork Orange" 

Any others you can think of.......

A Clockwork Orange (my favorite movie) would make an awesome show musically, but how would a Corps address the rape & rape/murder that are critical to the plot?

Even before the negative news finally surfaced earlier this year and because the marching arts tell a story in their shows, this music should never be used.

The music (the Glorious Ninth of Ludwig Van, Purcell's Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary, Singing in the Rain,  etc is fine IMHO; it is the plot that presents problems

I think leaving those aspects out, and just focussing on the other ideas/concepts communicated in the storyline.

Perhaps you are right - ignore the ultra-violence & focus on the Kordova Milk Bar & recreating the Nazi Nuremberg rally (which is from another movie -Triumph of the Will)
