Les Miserables, worth seeing even if you hate musicals.
I've never liked musicals, but Les Miserables (2012), is an exception. Something in the trailer I guess just compelled me to go. I'll start with the negative, mostly personal. There is very little dialog spoken, everything is sung, (I know, it's a musical, but this movie could have used breaks in the constant singing, 2.5 hours of it). There is one scene that made me nearly vomit in my popcorn bag, Hugh Jackman trekking through raw sewage, so be ready for that. Aside from that, all the actors and actresses deserve academy awards. I know Ann Hathaway is up for an award for " I dreamed a dream" which was beautiful, but in my view, Samantha Barks deserves the award for "On my Own", which is the best Out of all of them. This movie was extremely well done for its genre. Cheers.
