i love Les Miserable. We've established that.
I can cry at every song.
And I am pee-my-pants excited about the movie.
I am ashamed to say how many times i watched the trailer when it came out
(more than once, less than twenty-five)
I love the cast. i love Anne Hathaway singing "I dreamed a dream". I think Russel Crowe will be an incredible Javert! And I think Hugh Jackman is a crazy good actor.
there is an issue.
Here is how I picture Jean ValJean (based on every performance I have ever seen)
Wise. Fatherly. Noble. He would protect me.
I don't think i am supposed to want to make out with Jean ValJean.
I mean, come on. Hugh Jackman? They even tried to uglify him. Not working
I am very tempted to email Victor Hugo (though he is dead) and say
"hey, i've got a great idea! Lets add a character to Les Mis. How about a sassy American, like...30 years old. And she marries Val Jean about the time Act 2 starts. And as Cozette is running around, falling in love...Mr and Mrs Val Jean make out a lot. Cool?"
AND... (wait for it)... lets name her Kendra.
then Schonberg would have to write a bunch more songs of Hugh...er...Jean professing his love for his adorable American wife.
I smell more Tonys.
so...now i have a crush on Jean Val Jean.
also, i've watched this far more times than I would like to admit...today.
and i only watch it for the fact that it's Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber. that is all.
