Oh Les Miserables Hangover!!!

Finally after such a long time of waiting and from the first time I blogged the trailer of Les Miserables, tonight I braved to do one thing I have been wanting to do since the last time I did it. I watched a movie alone for the first time in after oh so many years (clap, clap, clap). My last solo movie encouter was not that good so I better not talk about it.

Like book reviews I am no good for the movies also. So let me just share my thoughts about it. First, kudos to the whole cast of the movie. For me they all fit perfectly for their roles. They deserve all the nominations they got from the Golden Globe Awards and I am sure there will be more this coming Oscars. I guess I don’t need to mention how Hugh, Anne and Amanda never fails to deliver their character well. But my favorite part was of course Samantha Barks version of “on my own”. Very simple yet touching, plus add the rain effect. 🙂

Being the crybaby that I am, I cried at 5 scenes. First was when Jean Valjean got Cosette and he sung “suddenly”. Second at the hospital scene where Fantine died. Third where Eponine died and Marius was singing to him. Fourth when Marius was singing after all his friends died and lastly, when Jean Valjean said goodbye to Cosette and Marius. My tears wont stop as usual so when the movie ended, my head starts to throb again. This time I am not pissed off though I can’t walk straight. I can’t blame myself for crying, haha.

Two quotes that I somehow remember but not sure if it’s right since I can’t write and I am too absorbed in the movie.
If I could close your wounds with words of love – Marius to Eponine
There’s a grief that can’t be spoken. There’s a pain that goes and goes.” – Marius

That would be it. 🙂 Watch the movie and enjoy yourself. For all those musical fanatics, make sure you don’t miss it.

Can’t wait for Les Miserables the Movie!

Musicals always get my heart pumped up! I got goose bumps after watching the trailer. Truly, this is a must see for all ages. Since this will be shown on christmas time, we still have to read the book!

Meanwhile, you can check their page and follow them on twitter! Here’s the movie teaser!

[FANTINE]
There was a time when men were kind
When their voices were soft
And their words inviting
There was a time when love was blind
And the world was a song
And the song was exciting
There was a time
Then it all went wrong

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high
And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving
Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, no wine untasted

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
As they turn your dream to shame

He slept a summer by my side
He filled my days with endless wonder
He took my childhood in his stride
But he was gone when autumn came

And still I dream he’ll come to me
That we will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I’m living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.
