Funbags: What's with this singing crap? I've watched 3 versions of Le Mis, and there was no singing in any of them.


If you read the book while listening to Pink Floyds 'Dark Side of the Moon', I hear they sync up perfectly.

Broktun: I am an illiterate heathen.

What is Les Mis about?


In a world where the people are downtrodden, one man steals a loaf of bread and changes his life forever.
This Christmas, you don't need have less....to still be miserable.
-swoosh noise and wipe-
Les Miserables
Come hear the people sing

It's like Simon and Simon if Rick was an ex-con and and AJ was a hot chick that has a bastard child...and Rick adopts the kid after AJ dies but then Lieutenant "Downtown" Brown remembers that Rick was an ex-con that escaped and chases him around town. Rick is all, awww hell no this baby needs me, plus there is a total race riot about to go down.

So anyway, Lt Brown ends up eating his service revolver in a back alley. Rick get's the bastard girl out of town before shiat gets real.

That's about it...

It's about a down-on-his luck LSU football coach who has to sell 2 letter of his last name to survive.

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


Don't worry...when I make my film version I'll be sure and insert a 15 minute long documentary on the history of the Paris Sewer system.

fini_fly: Why does Helena Bonham Carter look the same in every movie she is in?


Most people tend to look like themselves most of the time. I know, shocking.

It's so weird to see Helena Boham Carter in a role where she plays a slightly demented character while wearing a ton of face make up and elaborate costuming.

Aliens invade pre-Revolutionary France. Jean Valjean must embark on a quest for three mystic artifacts which, according to legend, can repel the invaders. He teams up with a ragtag group including his stoic sidekick Javert, lovers Cosette and Eponine, and the smitten Marius to save the planet.

This is apparently a musical adaptation.

Jim from Saint Paul: catmandu: I love that they found a part for Colm Wilkinson (the bishop). He just HAD to be in this movie but is obviously too long in the tooth for Valjean.

Looks like he is about to sneeze.

I think Anne Hathaway is underrated.
She also has connection problems on her cell phone.

And she has very scary lawyers.

Spoiler alert!

"Les Miserables", means "The Miserables", in English.
It's about a rag tag group of drop outs who share the common bond of hay fever.
While living in Paris in the 1960s, they get together and form a jug band, with the dream of someday performing their signature song "Ah Choo" on the Ed Sullivan Show.

I hope they release a corresponding video game. The last Les Mis game had a good group of playable characters. I hope they somehow incorporate Robojean into this movie.

Well, it seems you're a little gay since you will go and see it.

I have no interest in musicals because I'm just not that fabulously inclined.

The Musical: Can't make my shiat up on whether to be a real film or a music video.
