Re: Visual Inspirations for Characters

So, I was watching the 1976 adaptation of The Picture of Dorian Gray tonight, and I noticed that Peter Firth as Dorian looks quite a bit like my mental image of Enjolras, despite having the wrong colour eyes. Unfortunately I could only find one decent sized image, and he doesn't look quite as angeli...

Re: 1934 Raymond Bernard Version

I have definitely noticed lots of Blu-ray releases of Les Mis adaptations since the musical film came out! I was finally able to get hold of a decent quality version of the 1958 film (with subs!) to replace my poor quality DVD. I doubt that there will be quite as much improvement here, since the 193...

Re: 1934 Raymond Bernard Version

Just popping in to say that this will be released on Blu-ray by the end of the year by Pathe. I assume that Criterion will also pick it up for release, if the Pathe release has no subs. Here's hoping that the restoration is better than recent Pathe releases such as Enfants du Paradis.

Re: Musical Movie?

Ah, I know why the release date has been pushed back for the UK. It's because The Hobbit is going to be released on 14th December too, and I definitely wouldn't want to put a film in competition with that on opening weekend. I am a bit worried as to how Les Mis will fare against The Hobbit in US cin...

Re: Musical Movie?

I ended up Googling it, and found all of the different release dates: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1707386/releaseinfo I'm sort of suprised that the UK isn't the first country it'll be shown in, actually. Aren't movies usually released first in the countries they're filmed in? Feel free to just igno...

Re: Any recommendations?

Before I bought the 1982 version, I'm pretty sure that I found it online in a US compatible format, but not on Region 1 DVD. Watching different region DVDs is pretty simple if you watch them on a computer (use DVD Ghost or similar programs like AnyDVD; I'm pretty sure you can find freeware with the ...

Re: A taste of real 1830s student republicanism

between4walls: I have studied some aspects of group theory at uni and don't really understand it either, so you're not alone. M. Guigniault sounds a lot like quite a few of the aging masters of my college and of the university - very against change to the traditions because it simply wasn't done bef...

Re: What was the worst in the movies?

The director seems to do some really weird things in the series. We'll be trundling along enjoying something that's very close to the book and then something comes out of left field and leaves us completely stumped. Maybe the director is a bit crazy (he seemed to do similar things with the Monte Cri...

Re: Good evening, citizens

Hi and welcome. Unfortunately my family hasn't taken so well to Les Mis as yours seem to have done, but I think my mum may be slowly coming round i.e. she bought the 25th DVD after going to see the tour.

Ugh, creepy!Valjean smiling at the illustrator. I really like the rest of the picture, but that freaks me out.

Re: Dramatis Personae: Bossuet PG

His eyes are absolutely beautiful, and feel so alive and quite soulful. And I love the little dimple he has on the right side of his mouth. The blue colour of his cravat/neckcloth is absolutely gorgeous.

Is it weird that I can really easily picture him with an earring in at least one ear?

Re: Earworms

As part of my new obsession, I've been repeatedly listening to John Powell's score for "How to train your dragon". I also often have parts of the Lord of the Rings Complete Recordings playing while I'm working. Or Star Wars soundtracks. I love leitmotif driven music! Surprisingly, I'm not ...

Re: Best-Worst-Weirdest use of Les Misérables songs?

That Les Mis/Lord of the Rings crossover I think was part of a huge attempt to set the whole of Les Mis to scenes from the film. Crazy, especially some of the casting, but you have to admire the effort that was put into doing the whole the thing.

Re: Characters' ages, birthdays and appearances

In the chapter "One Mother Meets Another", or whatever the translation/original is, it says that Ten months had elapsed since the "pretty farce." when Fantine meets the Thenardiers. So I don't know where your copy got the 3 years from, but I think the translator seems to be makin...

Re: Characters' ages, birthdays and appearances

The problem with Hugo is that sometimes his dates don't add up properly, so ages of characters can be a nightmare. And Tholomyes left Fantine in 1817 (it's there in the book title), when Cosette was presumably 2 years old or so, not before she was born.
