I feel like I have neglected my Films category and did not post any comments on really good films I have watched recently like the Intouchables (I have Amour and the Impossible to watch still) which was simply brilliant.
I had nothing to do one evening and so I watched Les Miserables – the most bizarre film I have watched in a very long time. Why? Why the singing?! Tuneless singing?! No, I correct myself, good singing, in tune it was, but some songs were so ….weird…I don’t know where to put them! Such a tragic story, I felt it was diminished to the soap opera level by the repeated look down, look down. The singing really did not go with anything in the movie, so why was is there?
I am not a big fan of musicals but I did enjoy the Moulin Rouge, Chicago and Rocky Horror Picture Show of course and the Sound of Music, by all means, but this I honestly do not know which shelf to leave this on – costume drama tragedy slash musical?! . I finished it, I watched it in chunks but as I did not like it that much, I am afraid that is all I will say.
Oh and I did not cry and I cry at just about everything.
I will leave you, my dear readers, with a question:
Why is Eponine’s arms so oversized compared to her photoshoped (?) stomach?
