Moo, you are the only person I know in perhaps the whole world who prefers Crowe's singing. :lol:

I haven't watched it but all I've heard from everyone was that his singing was horrendous.

I felt mostly the same was as Moo with Les Mis, minus Russel Crowe being good. I thought it was a pompous mess. Sure it had big emotions, but the film consisted pretty much only of big songs and set pieces, there's no time for the viewer to learn about the characters enough to actually give a shit about them.

Plus I personally can't stomach "love at first sight" stories. I can appreciate that this is an adaptation of an adaptation of a very old book, but the love story in this jut felt forced.


I can see why a lot of people would love it, but it's just not for me. I found it crazy overrated, and I'm a fan of big cheesy emotional shit like that really.

He wasn't the best, but it was much better than I expected.

Stars and javert's suicide were pretty great.


I thought "Look Down" sounded good, everything else ranged from mediocre to fucking painful, regardless of the singing.

And Javert's suicide genuinely made me laugh because it looked so fucking silly :lol:
If I like it, It's probably awful.

I can guarantee that's not the case with me. I have no idea what it's about. Something about a little blonde girl?

Not that weird. Didn't he used to be the keyboardist for some 80's pop group of some description?

He was indeed with DARE, He was there bus driver then they found he could played keyboards, so it was easier to use him :P Long story how I know this, but that's how Vinny Burns tells it

I don't like him that much, he's a bit of a twat, the David Beckham of the Physics world if you will. On the plus side he is increasing interest in the subject.

He seems quite sound from what I've seen of him on TV, he's no Alice Roberts though ;)

Can someone do a metal version of Perry Como's Hot Diggity? Tesco are using it in their advert and I think it needs doing.
