    Re: Les Miz?

    I was on my way to see it last night after dinner out with a friend, but we changed at the last minute to Bless Me, Ultima. Prairie Home Companion had just lampooned Les Mis on their show as I was driving and most of the jibes were either at overly long songs, or at Mr. Crowe. I had seen it live some decades before, but couldn't remember it being that tiring.

    We enjoyed Ultima, especially being in New Mexico, but found it slightly preachy on the earth thing, despite both of us giving it a thumbs up and a rating in the upper 80's out of 100. But, the trailers for Les Mis were phenomenal, so we both looked at one another and decided to take it in this afternoon as a matinee. Even before seeing it, I would highly recommend seeing it on the large screen. As good as the written saga may be, this production was designed to bring scale and sweeping drama to scenes, and it won't be the same in your home. It won't.

    Of course, my main interest is seeing Mr. Jackman, but I'm up for a good French tale as well.

    i saw it opening week. thought it was pretty good. there were some parts that were a little off because they used live singing, but i feel that it brought more feel to the emotions being portrayed. i also think it was cast decently.

    It has a Baz Luhrman quality.

    In this case though, as I mentioned, we are literally so close into the action and the characters that it isn't really about the singing only, as opposed to the stage version where the singing has to be flawless and 'big'.

    I didn't think that anyone was that horrible, including Crowe.

    It was a big risk...but from the number of people crying around us..I think it worked.
    Ah, but were people crying because of the tender heartbreaking story and high-quality acting OR because they want to kill the actors for singing badly?

    Then again, I would watch any Hugh Jackman's film even if the only thing he did in there is just slow-shagging a corpse on a sharp eroded boulder and speaking dirty horrendously

    (I want to post Isaac's review, which may or may not be a joke, but my work IP blocks FB --' the only thing I remember very well was Jackman's falsetto is as thick and creamy as his chest hair - and that he sounds like a hamster during high tones )

    The one thing we could not understand is why they had Jackman and a couple of others singing some songs in a higher key than their voices are capable of.

    It is a movie after all. You can a do another take.

    Jackman doing 'Bring Him Home' was not the best moment of the movie.

    To the OP,

    I have seen it. And I cried. It was very touching and moving. I really feel for Eponine....being in love with someone who doesn't love you back.

    Anyway, both Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway won Golden Globes today for their roles in the movie. And the movie itself won best movie-comedy/musical at the Golden Globes today.

    A review from Isaac. I couldn't stop rotflmao-ing.

    Like oh my gosh you didn't like it? I think you just didn't understand like seriously Russell Crowe and Hugh Jackman gave the singing performances of the decade and wow like Amanda Seyfried she totally had the deepest voice out of all the woman like oh my gosh the only person I can say that sucked was Anne Hathawat yah she totally cannot sing but oh my gosh Hugh Jackman's falsetto was so thick and creamy just like his chest hair.

    Summary of Les Mis: Unnecessary chest hair, Hugh Jackman sounds like a hamster, Hugh Jackman looks like Mozart, Helena Bonham Carter is the same person in every single movie she does, the best sound that came out of Russel Crowe was the sound of his face hitting the concrete and snapping in half, Amanda Seyfried cannot sing anything higher than an F, that freckled face guy needs to stop crying, everyone else in the theater needs to stop crying, ENJOLRAS !!!!!!!!!! Love, girl from Broadway who played Eponine was aight, and Anne Hathway like woah.

    Well... I've never seen a movie that was SO good but SO SO bad at the exact same time. It's a weird feeling. And yeah I get it, it's Hollywood... I'm not asking for amazing singers, but at least make them believable. Every time Russel Crowe opened his mouth I wanted to die and every time Wolverine opened his mouth (in the second half where he had high notes), he sounded like a hamster. I couldn't stop myself from cracking up. And Amanda Seyfried has NO excuses for being so bad.

    Also so much unrequited love between Valjean and Javert.

    I've seen most movie versions of recent 'blockbuster' stage musicals (Phantom, Evita, Mamma Mia etc) and I wouldn't give you tuppence for any of them. As for Les Mis, well it is my favourite stage musical of all time, so I was hoping and praying that the movie wouldn't disappoint. And I'm happy to say that I loved every second of it! I agree that Russell Crowe's voice wasn't the best, though I felt that he made a suitably menacing Javert. Amanda Seyfried's voice, too, didn't do a lot for me, though again, she played the part of Cosette very well. Everyone, and everything else about the film was absolutely brilliant, IMO. And yes, I even bawled like a baby in all the right places!

    One other thing, if anyone was contemplating waiting for it to come out on DVD before seeing it at home, then don't! This is a big, big production with breathtaking cinematography that can only be fully appreciated on the big screen.

    Re: Les Miserables (2012)

    I love musicals... I'm that gay. But I hated this movie. Most of the music was really boring. The acting was good. Some of the singing was pretty awkward. I just wanted to leave. My guy fell asleep at one point. Did NOT enjoy it at all.
