Solon Isonomia: WTF, Anne Hathaway's performance of I Dreamed A Dream makes Morissey look like the happiest man who ever lived. I was moved strongly when I heard it on her NPR interview a few weeks ago; I was ready to open up my veins after seeing the whole thing yesterday. How the fark is that not a successful performance?


And if I Dreamed a Dream and her death weren't sad enough, there she is, all skinny and near bald at the end there waiting to escort Hugh to the great beyond. Even in death she wasn't allowed to keep her hair? Yeah, the audience in my theater pretty much kept it together through out that movie but then when she came back it was nothing but a room full of sniffles. Even Future Mr. Mouse needed a minute during the credits to recover because he was just so GD sad.

So, for some levity, here's Ann vs. Sam Jackson in a Sad Off.

You haven't really heard Les Mis until you've heard it in the original Klingon.

rocinante721: Never saw the stage play, so I have no prejudices.

Les Miz was enthralling.

I thought Crowe was subpar, however, my musician wife told me I was expecting too much. It may or may not apply that plenty of other leading singers were not virtuosos (Rex Hamilton, Yul Brynner, Zero Mostel, RObert Preston, Carol Channing etc.) yet defined their roles.

If you want to talk about crimes to musical cinema:

This felch (and the f*cking woeful Alice In Wonderland) makes me retroactively hate everything Tim Burton has ever done. Never has a leading musical theater actor been horribly miscast (Hugh Jackman would have been the perfect 'name' actor to play it).


You're just bitter because this is the second musical you've gone to where Helena Bonham Carter has served street meat in the poor restaurant she runs.

Rocket To Russia: AeAe: dwrash: A movie that was supposed to be in Paris.. where the majority of the spoken lines were with thick English accents.

Kind of killed it for me.

Absolutely. Since the book was written in French, the movie should have been done in French. It should be sub-titled so non-French speakers can follow along.

Idiot.

Pardon, but you're the idiot. The movie is set in France. The peasants have cockney accents. Is it so hard to put on a French accent? You know, as actors? Did anybody making the film think about this for a second?


No. Nobody over the past 32 years, in 126 countries with hundreds of thousands of performances in nearly every language spoken on the planet has ever thought of that.

WhoIsWillo: DamnYankees: Agreed I thought he was great. I would be more than happy for him to win Best Actor - not that he will.

If Daniel Day Lewis doesn't win Best Actor, I will eat a entire mall kisok of hats.


Someone get a screenshot and bookmark the thread.

I have to disagree with the majority of the people who did not enjoy Jackman's portrayal of Valjean. He was able to do something that is near impossible in the stage version and that is impart "true" emotion into the song. You can feel his pain and anguish when he sings, and that is the most endearing quality of his performance. I was disappointed with his inability to sing the falsetto portion of Bring Him Home, but felt that he did make the performance his own.

I also agree the Amanda Seyfried's performance as adult Cossette was the only time i have not been significantly annoyed by that part.

Also Adam Lambert is an Idiot who needs to realize the only reason he is "famous" is because he came in second in a popularity contest. He is a mediocre singer at best (professionally) and is no where near qualified to critique others performance. Though i do think he probably would have done okay as one of the Lovely Ladies.

Wait - are we seriously considering criticism from someone whose name we know only because he was a friggin' runner-up in a friggin' game show? Really?

Adam Lambert is an attention remora. Fark him.

Jim from Saint Paul: I have only seen the trailers. The onl;y person who sounds awful is Amanda Sigfried(sp?). She sounds like her teeth are chattering or that someone is ruccing her kneck visciously up and down on every note.

/hot in Chloe though


Seyfried. She's actually a trained singer and that technique is called "vibrato".

Damn right, motherfarker - how can slavery compete with a film who's title literally translates to "The Miserable?"

I have never seen or heard a more moving Dream a Dream.

Enjoyed the movie much more than the theater version and Anne's I Dream a Dream was worth the price of the popcorn alone.
