    Rent Is Love...

    And it always will be. Rent is one of those movies that will make you laugh, while it also touches your heart with the topics it rises. It IS the movie and musical that taught us that everyone is equal and no one should be judged on sexual orientation or health problems (ie-AIDS...

    Rent Changed My Life!!!!

    Without this musical, that I have watched somewhere around a hundred times on DVD, I would not be the person I am today. Angel is my inspiration....Rest in peace, my love!!!

    A Life-altering Experience

    I will go as far to say that my love of RENT has altered my life in some small way.  The music, the lyrics, and the message is so gutterally human that I can't help but relate to it.  And all of the situations the characters are in show a different perspective on human...

    The First Time I Saw Rent I Didn'T Like It

    But with musicals, I generally have to watch them twice before they click. The second time I was totally into it and was surprised that it had some depth to it and could actually make me feel. I got used to the songs and the characters and now it's one of my favorite movies. I...

    ♥ It

    By far one of the most amazing movies ever made. Its a musical, and it has such a beautiful, but sad story behind it. I am currently listening to some of the songs from the Movie on Youtube. I Love this movie :)
