The preview was so impressive -- and no singing in it -- that I just forgot what I knew to be true about the movie, and was expecting a lot of shooting and gashing and storming of barricades. I had the same problem with "Evita" -- dismay that they were actually and literally going to sing and dance their way through the whole thing with Madonna and everything.
"Django" isn't a musical, is it? I was bowled over by "Reservoir Dogs" and "Pulp Fiction" back in the Nineties, but "Kill Bill" killed any interest I had in seeing any more Quentin Tarantino movies (especially since "Django" is basically the same formula as his "Basterds" movie). If you're really a movie fan, though, you might get a kick out of seeing which movies QT ripped off to make this one -- or you could just rent James Garner and Lou Gossett Jr. in "Skin Game."
Maybe it's time for a comedy next ...
Are you serious? Aside from the Victor Hugo novel, the musical version of Les Misérables holds the record as the longest running Broadway musical, topping both Phantom of the Opera and Cats. It won 9 Tony Awards since its debut in 1987.
