Les Miserables could've been perfect but...

Les Miserables could've been perfect but they made Russell Crowe sing.

Don't get me wrong. The guy is a great actor, but singing is a big no no for him. It was like Pierce Brosnan on Mamma Mia all over again.

Again, like my previous post regarding the movie "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," this post is not a movie review post. So, again, I'll just post the things I find interesting.

1. Loved Anne Hathaway!
2. Loved Hugh Jackman!
3. Loved Amanda Seyfried!
4. Sacha Baron Cohen was good but I'm slightly annoyed whenever he shows up. I'm not really sure if it's because of his character or well... Whatever.
5. Samantha Barks (Eponine) was great! Wish she had more scenes.
6. Loved the finale song. :)
7. I think it would've been better if they had re-cast Geoffrey Rush as Javert.
8. Russell Crowe's suicide scene couldn't come soon enough.

That's all. What do you think?

  2. I still haven't seen the movie. I saw the Broadway play in New York when I was 17 and slept through the entire thing until cannon fire woke me! I do really want to see the movie. I have to say....when I saw that Russell Crowe was cast I was shocked. He doesn't seem like a good singer. Hope to see it soon...

  3. I think that I cannot understand the fascination with Les Miserables.
    You could not drag me to see this movie. I know other people love it so much. I don't see it.
