OT: Go See Les Miserables

Submitted by WingsNWolverines on December 26th, 2012 at 7:23 PM
This is beyond off topic but last night I went to see Les Miserables in theaters with my father and his female friend. I was honestly a little intrigued because I saw this broadway show a while back when I was little and to be honest it didn't thrill me much because I was too little to appreciate it. After seeing it last night in its new version my mind after it was over was blown wide open. This is probably one of the greatest movies ever made and might even win best picture. Hugh Jackman not only is bad ass as Wolverine but MY GOD this man can sing beautifully. I was stunned how well he played Jean Valjean. Russel Crowe also sings as he plays Javert the French police captain. He sings too. Good not great though. Anne Hathaway continues to amaze me every time I hear her voice in a song. She's probably the most talented actress in Hollywood right now. She plays Fatine the mother of the little girl Cosette. The girl who plays the other main female character Eponine are actual singers in the real broadway play. Anyway its a very beautiful and an amazing movie and if you are not into musicals or broadway I understand but this movie really has it all and the stage show is even better. I highly recommend this to anyone. I won't lie guys I had tears at the end. This movie will tug at your heart strings. Not many movies have made me cry. This did. 5/5 stars.

My mom and wife liked it. My dad and I (actual men) thought it was terrible. I would rather watch Beiber sing in the Wizard of Oz. I pray to god Ohio fans aren't reading this crap. #embarassing

Yeah, this is something that really belongs on a Michigan sports blog. I'd like to think all posts, including OTs, must be at least minimally sports-related.

Could you provide a list of what is and is not allowed? I thought that the fact that the moderators left this (and many other OT posts) active indicated that it in fact was allowed. But now you have taken it upon yourself to let everyone know that this does not belong on the MGoBlog board. Interesting. Please let me know under what authority you were granted this right.
