My evil horrible friend made me watch the 1998 on Friday.
........ dear me. I don't quite know where to start. Let's see, some of the things that bugged me:
- Uma Thurman
- Javert seeing what happened with Fantine and instead of arresting the men SLAPPING her and arresting her, WTF?
- Cosette the whiny emo teenager
- Claire Danes' accent
- Marjolras, oh dear lord
- Marjolras quite stupid to be speechifying in the middle of the street. Quite shinypretty though.
- Violence! Valjean slamming Javert's head into that wall like that.
- Valjean HITTING THE BISHOP OMGWTF.
- Valjean loving Fantine. Er.
- Valjean smacking Cosette.
- Valjean telling Cosette he was a convict. WTF.
- Suicide. Audience. Hello.
- ... what happened to the rest of the film?
I'm sure there is more.
(Also, I've renamed that pretty young thing they insisted was Marius Marjorie. Because I was calling him Marjorlas and my friend thought I said Marjorie and yes.)
