Pre-ONT Movie Review and Open Thread [Andy]

Vince Mancini reviews Les Miserables to the tune of Smash Mouth's All Star.

HEY now, you’re a French dude, kill some French dudes, sing, GAAAAY

HEY now, Valjean’s there now, life’s unfair now, get, SLAAAAAIN

And ALL those PEOP-LE are DEEEE-heeeeee-yeeeeead, Jackman in the SEW-er, saved Eddie Red…

Funny stuff.

I've seen the Broadway show twice and can't wait to see the movie.

What?

Don't judge me.

And no you most certainly can not see my man card. There's guns and killin' and explosions 'n' stuff, so this one skates by on a technicality.

26 evening all

13- I spent big money buying expensive seats for Les Mis when it came to the Bass Theater in Fort Worth-hubby had just come home from Iraq, and he had enjoyed the musical pre-me. I made him walk out. I got so sick of the communist theme to the songs, and the rise up against the man crap, when the man oppressing them was the Robespierrian mob.

We will go see the movie because my kid wants to go, but I won't enjoy it. Give me Oklahoma!

(Full Disclosure-I played Laurie in productions in Athens, so I may be a tad biased to that particular show.)

Think of Andy Roon's voice as you read this.
Newsweek is dead. Actually it's been dead a long time. It's been more of a NewsZombie as it losts it's soul long ago. Now that a stake has been driven thru that newsrag can we look forward to Time Magazombie going the same way?
Has Arby's ever sold a sandwich that looks like the ones piled high with roast beef shown on the menu board?
Anybody notice malls are relatively uncrowded for this time of year. Hell, even Walmart isn't crowded. Maybe I'm the only one who waited till the last minute to shop.
Has there ever been any male successful in news media that had a more annoying voice than Andy Rooney had?

Actually, it's post French Revolution, circa 1832. Yeah, the socialism is a bit much, but it's entertainment.. exquisite entertainment. I hate musicals, except for Les Miz. The songs and story are incredible. It's truly the best ever. And fuck you, I will NOT surrender my Man Card

Damn anesthesia didn't work. I cracked a rib and broke a tooth. Tumor gone (Good Christmas present!!) but doc is pissed that it grew back, since it's not supposed to do that. I go back in three months. If there is any growth, kidney is out of here.


Otherwise, we are doing great. Wrangled my four year old Sunday School class in the Christmas musical this morning. Only one wild child, which turned out great too. Life is good. God is too!!

Went down to Union Station in downtown LA today and picked up the dadster, he took the amtrak up. It's such a cool building but, ew, ick, once you go back where the tracks are, it's kinda skeevy. And lots of people trying to hustle a few bucks. Real fuckin' festive, I hope I didn't catch anything.

My folks live within easy walking distance of the Village Idiot (as it is affectionately known in my family). When I was there this summer, we always hit the Wednesday pie special. I think I grew two dress sized this summer, even with the walking.

LOL!

No, seriously, anyone know where I can get a life size Cheebacca stuffed animal? All I can find are cardboard versions. I think waking up and walking out of my bedroom and seeing Chewbacca sitting on my living room sofa will help me rediscover my smile that Obama stole from me on Election night.

Posted by: laddy at December 24, 2012 08:14 AM (QmNJC)

185 I saw Les Mis once, on a trip to New York. I really liked it - don't remember anything about socialism, I just recall Javert vs. Valjean as a sort of contest between non-Christian way of life (rigid, lifeless obedience to law) and the Christian way (love is the fulfilment of the law). But my one main impression of the whole show was this:I always thought that all the talk about "Broadway" was hyperbole. But when you see a show like that, you realize that it's not just hype; there's a level of professionalism and talent there that really does lift theater a notch - or several notches - above what you'll find in smaller towns. I'll bet the Metropolitan Opera is stunning too - wish I'd had a chance to experience it.
