Flaming Star
Flaming Star (1960)

Flaming Star is not your typical Elvis musical. In fact, there's only two songs in the whole movie. And that's certainly not a bad thing! Elvis plays a dramatic role in the film, something that hadn't been done in two years. I'm not going to spoil it, but the plot is certainly an intriguing one, and I didn't feel bored at all during this film like I did during Speedway, Harum Scarum, and other lame musicals. When people say Elvis films are horrible, chances are they haven't even heard of this film. Also, don't be fooled by publicity shots: Barbara Eden doesn't play a very big role in this film. Anyways, all Elvis fans should see this film. It's my second favorite film of his, a close second to King Creole, another great Elvis movie.

Blue Hawaii

Blue Hawaii was Elvis's most successful film. It had everything an Elvis musical should have: songs, dances, romance, and some silly moments too. The soundtrack is a masterpiece compared to Fun In Acapulco and it's probably one of his best soundtracks of the 60's, including "Can't Help Falling In Love," one of his well-known love songs. The romance in the film, well, is a little too much. There are just too many potential love interests in the film, and one of them is WAY too young also! But I'm not going to spoil it for you. Elvis has his fair share of sassy moments in the film. Honestly, it's a fun film. DON'T watch it for the plot though. It's just one of those funny movies you'd put in the background at a party.

Pretty lame! I know it was supposed to be a spoof, but it honestly wasn't very funny. The soundtrack is sort of... well, lame. I liked So Close Yet So Far, however. The movie was hilariously racist. Slave girls? LOL. It really just went on for too, too long. 30 minutes would be okay, but 88 minutes...?
