What Nigel really thought of Les Miserables

Nigels first movie review!

Les Miserables the Movie!


Nigel has seen Les Mis on stage a grand total of once. But then Nigel doesn’t often see that much in the way of culture. But Nigel still loved it anyway.

More recently Nigel saw Les Miserables on screen staring Russel Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Tim Burton’s wife, Borat shaved his mustache, whats-his-face and whats-her-face.

Review: Nigel loved the movie version too!

The end

Thank you for reading πŸ™‚


The setting is the 19th century French Revolution, with a spiritual theme of forgiveness and redemption. The main character John Valjean breaks his parole and is then hunted by the policeman Javert.Nigel managed to get through the whole thing without crying (no we didn’t).

Unlike all Musical-to-movies I’ve seen, they were all doing it live. As in, not lip syncing. Extra points! Because it’s a musical, it doesn’t have to be a Madonna music video!

I knew Ann Hatherway could sing before I saw this. Fantene is the most powerful part in the whole show! She was singing live, also full on ugly crying and still managed to stay on pitch and sound amazing. American Idol rejects who sing smiling have no excuse! Can’t wait to see what Hatherway does next.

Some don’t like Russel Crows voice as Javert. Agreed, it’s not amazing, but nice resonance, I’m jealous!

Borat and Helena Bonham-Carter’s acting was funny, which is what I wanted πŸ™‚ ThoughΒ  I think their singing could have been more comedic. Helena has a nice voice though. Maybe if her character was completely off her face as she badmouthed her husband it would have been funnier πŸ˜› The innkeepers wife seems to be a happy-drunk in the stage show. The roles of the innkeepers lifts the story a bit. Without them the show would be an emofest. It’s nice to add a bit of lightness to it πŸ™‚

Marius seemed to have a bad case of bobble head vibrato 😦 but that’s all I didn’t like about him. Though the lady playing Cosette had a crazy vibrato through all her notes and she didn’t move a thing! Does anyone else think her vibrato is cute or is it just me?

Here is the real The End. Thank you for reading πŸ™‚

Pretty much everything I had to say about it was related to singing. Am I obsessed with music?
