Musical Monday: Moulin Rouge! - El Tango De Roxanne (#2).

[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.]

For the longest time, this was in the #1 position on this list. It really is not only one of my favorite musical numbers of any movie ever, but one of my favorite scenes in any movie ever. The music is strong, the visuals are great, and the editing is ungodly magnificent. It's dark, it's gritty, and it's powerful. You may hate this movie, and I know a lot of people do, but you can't deny this is a fantastic scene. Even the Nostalgia Critic, who hates everything, recently did a fantastic musical review of this movie... and even HE couldn't deny the awesomeness of this scene. I've been a long time fan of Doug Walker, and I have to say that's the first time I can recall his Nostalgia Critic character ever saying anything positive about a film (that was in a legitimately good way, not a 'this is so crazy it's awesome' kind of way). So yeah, if you've never seen the movie, at least check out this scene. It's that good.

So what could possibly be #1? Check out next Monday to find out!
