Hollywood has long been adapting stage productions of musicals and turning them into fabulous movies for a mass public appeal. In more modern times, the formula of moving a stage musical onto the silver screens has remained a winning one with the likes of Les Miserables, Mamma Mia and Chicago transitioning well to the big screen resulting in rave reviews and high viewing figures.

However, there are a number of musicals where the movie hasn't had such a great response, such as Christian Bale's not so epic Newsies, Rent (the movie) and even the amusing Rock of Ages not doing ever so well with the critics.

With this in mind, do you enjoy seeing how a musical translates into film, or do you think it should stay on stage as originally intended?
