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?
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:[upload.wikimedia.org image 299x454]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).
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?
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.

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

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.
DamnYankees: It must stink to be the worst part of a movie, but Crowe was the worst part of Les Mis.
