Reviewing movies intermittently for your convenience.
Saturday, April 27, 2013
Finally watched Les Miserables the film version. It's proof that big production style stage musicals don't work in movie format - especially when you watch them on a TV. It was pretty good, I guess, great songs, good story. Russell Crowe got A LOT of flack for being terrible in it, that was deserved, but I didn't think Hugh Jackman did that much better of a job; in fact pretty much every character was miscast, except of course Daniel Huttlestone and Isabelle Allen, that were both phenomenal. And, was that Borat I saw in there? If I had some kind of rating system, this would score a "not really worth writing a lengthy review about, see it if you've got nothing better to do."
