It amazes me that all the people who apparently HATE and bash this AMAZING adaptation of the stage play... went to see it anyways. And come on here to vent their frustration of being petty at how GOOD this movie really is. I think this is one of the most truthful adaptations to a stage musical since Chicago. And as far as celebrities opinions go aka Adam Lambert,, he has no room to talk. Seeing of how he's a two hit wonder and can barely sing himself which is why he lost Idol and has to rub his opinion in people's faces because he's not getting the attention he once had. Maybe he's pissed at the fact that he didn't get the part of Jean ValJean. When Hugh Jackman blew me away with his PHENOMENAL voice! Let's put it this way he had me in tears at some points in the movie with how powerful his voice is. And the story line and music in general is a good "choke you up" time. I will be laughing tears of joy when come Oscar night both Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway (her best film in my opinion) walk away with the golden guy and it wins for best picture. All the while when you haters are kicking yourself saying geez, this was a good movie after all.
UGH! I don't even know where to begin. LOVE Denzel and LOVE Zemeckis' style. But detested this movie. I couldn't wait to return it to the Redbox. I wanted to care and cheer on Whip. But found myself saying... when is this going to end? Nothing to get excited about and something I won't view again. I'm just so disappointed in a film from a great director and a brilliant actor that was as flat as a three day old open can of Coca-Cola. Blech! Sad!
