snowshovel: The All-Powerful Atheismo: Waldo Pepper: Les Mis: Got about 20 minutes in and turned it off, total turd, If I'm watching a musical give me actors who can sing over famous names.Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway are great singers.Russel Crowe... notsomuch.The movie was a turd, I agree. Mostly because of pacing issues.I'm curious about the pacing issues you mention. I mean, all-sung musicals sort of let you get away with things you wouldn't normally do in a typical storyline due to the song aspects. So I can kind of forgive some wackiness in that regard.And yeah, Russel Crowe; I guess he can sing well enough to be a singer in a garage band, but I agree that he doesn't really have the musical range for something like Les Mis. In the end, that was probably a bad casting call, but I certainly can't blame him for trying and accepting the role when offered. He does a good job taking the header off the bridge, though.
homarjr: What's the worst thing that happened in the 1999 Academy Awards?Saving Private Ryan losing to Shakespeare in Love? Or American History X not even being nominated?Edward Norton should have won over Reberto Farking Benigni.
AliceBToklasLives: You may not care for Zero Dark or Crash, but they are in no way as bad as two of the older films on the list.The Greatest Show on Earth is a sad, tired film - even Jimmy Stewart's scenes seem like a funeral.Gigi just comes across today as creepy (it opens with a guy singing about little girls in a fake French accent) and anyway the music sucks.Zero Dark 30 is Hamlet compared to these crapfests.
