Musical Monday: Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Interstella 5555 (#48).

[Every Monday, I'm going to be counting down my 52 favorite musical numbers from musical movies and TV shows. I might not like the full movie/show, but the number makes the list for various reasons: 1) I have to like the song, 2) the visual of how the number is performed is most likely unique or fun, 3) both song and visual mixes well to create an exciting or powerful number. So let's get to the next on the list.]

What, did you think I forgot Musical Monday? Well... I kinda did. But let's get into it now. This is the last one for a while where I don't care for the actual movie. This film is basically a really long music video for Daft Punk. It takes a bunch of their songs and puts a sci-fi story behind them. Unfortunately, there is no dialogue outside the songs. Normally, this might not bug me too much. However, it makes it incredibly difficult to follow the story and characters in this particular case, and it really drags after a while. But the music itself is good, and there's one song (and music video) in particular that made me want to see this film in the first place so that I could see the full story around it. And that song? Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger. The animation is great. The song is awesome. The story and video of this song alone is worth checking out.
