not_an_indigo: OtherLittleGuy: Oh yeah, those that wanted to read the book, but thought it was it was too long and dragged in parts--Best. Abridged. Edition. Ever.Fark you, abridged books are for people who don't know how to read.
Broktun: I am an illiterate heathen.What is Les Mis about?
snowshovel: While this does look awesome....it's kind of strange to see people running around singing in hyper-realistic sets with casts of thousands (digital or otherwise). It always seemed like the better filmed musicals played with the notion of that absurdity by either maintaining some semblance of theatrics (Chicago, West Side Story, Moulin Rouge(yes, I know it's a stage-to-film transfer)) or changing things a lot to make it more film-y (Cabaret). Maybe Evita comes the closest to be "singing in realistic settings"? It's been a while since I've watched that movie.
Tyrosine: Without question I'll go see it but I'd prefer a non-musical version with more Victor Hugo and less Andrew Lloyd Webber./I don't appreciate serious drama tainted by the artsy foo foo crowd and I rather doubt a musical is what Hugo had in mind when he wrote the book
CavalierEternal: Bathia_Mapes: propasaurus: Bathia_Mapes: susansto-helit: Bathia_Mapes: propasaurus: Based on the trailers, I have to go see this alone. I'm not sitting there sobbing next to someone.If this doesn't make you cry like a baby, you have no soul. Alfie Boe--Bring Me HomeIf that's any gauge of how I'll react, I'm going to be crying like a little biatch.it's one of the most emotional songs in Les Miserables. I'm interested in how Hugh Jackman will interpret it. He's got a decent singing voice, but he's no Colm Wilkinson or Alfie Boe.I've always been partial to Javert, so I'm more curious about Russell Crowe.Me too. There's so little of him singing in the trailer, so it's hard to judge at this point.Ahem...
