Re: US Tour

I saw the production on their closing night in Vancouver. t was a pretty decent production overall, but not without its flaws. The show felt really rushed (kind of felt like they wanted to stay undert 3 hours with the 20 minute intermission), and the Javert was terrible at choosing when to speak his...

Re: Awards Ceremonies 2013

Well, that wraps it up. Daniel Day-Lewis and Argo; very predictable, but perhaps not undeserved, though I think Les Mis still should have won. I think it was quite well honored, though. I'm proud of it. :mrgreen: And that was a blast to watch. Even if I'm really tired and everybody already left, bu...

Re: Awards Ceremonies 2013

SAGs over and done. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/27/sag-awards-winners-2013_n_2563499.html Anne Hathaway took home an award, justly deserved, while Hugh was beat out by Daniel Day Lewis, and Les Mis was beaten by Argo, a sort-of-surprise contender, though after the Globes, you could kind o...

I know, but people find a way :(

Guess it's because of "On My Own".

Re: Musical Movie Reviews/Discussion

I think just for that alone, I'm going to have to bring a whole box of tissues. A friend of a friend just blogged that she hates that the movie is making Les Mis so mainstream. I want to tell this woman: "In our social situation, we need it to be mainstream, darn it!" Why does she think t...

Re: Musical Movie Reviews/Discussion

Some thoughts: ⋅ There were some things that I missed - Éponine joining Fantine singing "...I'll lead you to salvation" at the end, for instance. But there were many good things - Valjean and Cosette arriving at the convent, for example. And one can't have everything. I'm actual...

I didn't see him. I'll try and look for him today though! Will be seeing this for a third time.

Re: Musical Movie?

I think it was only showing in the UK but the channel should have it online for a couple of weeks. I'll have a look and send you a link if I can find it. Thanks! It's been posted on the channel's website, but is region-locked to the UK. So what do people think of Adam Lambert slamming the singing i...

Re: Musical Movie?

Movie special on TV at the moment which is very interesting. Great to see Eddie talking about brick Marius and how both him and Hooper referred to that when looking at the character. I'm glad that he knows the character well in that way. Plus it was interesting to see him and Michael Ball talking a...
