Has any one seen Django or Les Mis? I am thinking about going to the movies this weekend. I know Les Mis is a musical but I was thinking that the theatre might be full of single women.
I like the music in Django, but I am not a fan of any of thr Obamatrons in the film.
any insight to either movie?
I just got back from seeing Les Mis. I thought it was dull. The way the movie was filmed was strange. Endless closeups.
And this is a bad thing?
I wouldn’t go to Django if the theater is in an area populated by a certain demographic.
We boycott Hollywood.
no, it is very good thing. my sister was on me again about not being married or at least dating.
I had actually considered that
Good, because given the current climate, I truly believe it will lead to violence.
les petit mademoiselles va à le théâtre
According to South Park, musicals make women amenable to certain... acts.
Broadway Bro Down, Season 15, Episode 11.
I saw Skyfall in November and posted a review.
All the chicks are raving about it on Facebook. That’s your warning right there.
I’d rather go see Bruce Willis in Looper or Liam Neeson in Taken 2
Not that I was going to go see Django anyway, but I would definitely not go given what the tard said the other day.
Our movie was the Hobbit.
“I wouldnt go to Django if the theater is in an area populated by a certain demographic”
I am staying away for sure.
loved the Hobbit
maybe I will checkit out.
I am way over 20 years, 23 I believe. I recall Dances with Wolves was the last one, at the insistence of my then fiance. I was not enthused about goiing, but could not refuse at the time.......
I saw the stage production of “Les Mis” and liked it.
Django - racist. Please don’t feed the “progressive” hate beast.
I just got back from Les Miz and it was sold out all over Asheville. Daughter from Chicago got us ticket reservations over internet. I saw the stage production twice and love the music and story. It was extremely well done. Although the Hollywood singers don’t do justice to the more operatic voices of the stage production, the acting more than made up for the less operatic voices. Jean ValJean played by Hugh Jackman is Oscar nomintaion worth. His voice was fine and made up royally with the acting. I finally put the whole story better together with the movie-stunning photography-you could hear a pin drop throughout the full house theater and a clapping ovation at the end of the film. I want to see it again. Also saw Life of Pi-wonderful ,thought provoking story and Hitchcock-wonderful also. Must see all of them and i see few movies.
young hot women?
While the book “The Hobbit” was more geared toward a young audience, the movie is much darker. Great action, back to Middle Earth. Improvements for some characters, like Elrond. Some comedy.
The movie theatre is not a place to meet women, it is a place to take women after you meet them.
Tarantino gave an extended interview on PBS yesterday that I had to suffer through due to family in the room, it was intolerable to the point that I couldn’t bear to listen to his description of the plot of the movie, much less see it develop on screen in the theater on account of his smarm and ego. I’ve seen most of his films, and slowly realized the whole push of his movies is not to glorify the plot or the characters or the cinematography, but Tarantino himself.
Got back from Les Mis 10 min ago. At least 2 cute women in crowd (my wife and daughter) and 2 somewhat bored guys (son and self). Good movie, felt like 4 hours long. Jackman is awesome, Crowe a bit too sympathetic as Javert. Other singing is very good.
All in all, a good movie. But the actors pale beside Darren McGavin and Alastair Sim, both of whom we watched last night.
The book is marvelous, the staging of it is a letdown.
I could have written what you wrote!
The stage production was wonderful, and I was a little concerned the movie might fall short. It did not, and in fact, added another dimension to the enjoyment.
My only less than positive comment is that Anne Hathaway’s portrayal of Cosette was not as solid and her character did not have the depth of the stage presentation. She was good; but not great.
The theatre I was in - Richmond, VA - was also sold out.
I would highly recommend seeing the movie.
Went to Les Miz at 11:00 today. Signs at the theater said that all shows today were sold out, we luckily had bought tickets online!
The sound cut in and out about halfway through, and the manager came in and apologized and said we’d all get refunds. They tried to get it going again, but then it cut out completely. Some in the audience tried a sing-along to the video, but unfortunately we were in a complicated part of the music......
So, I don’t know whether to go back for the second half, or use my voucher for zero dark thirty.
I sure hope that theater manager didn’t have to turn away 4 more showings today! The look on the poor guy’s face.....
Mais d’accord! O La La!!
Yes that’s the translation.
C’est-ca mon ami. Les jolli jeunes filles, n’est-ca pas?
Anne Hathaway played Fantine, not Cosett.
Si,y que linde!
As for The Hobbit, I saw it a few nights ago with some other family members. The others thought it was ok but I hated it
.the bone crunching bass blasts were too frequent and way to loud and it goes on and on because of the many battle scenes. I mention this because Im sure that the theatre I saw it in is not unique
. Its the kind of movie where they really crank up the bass/volume and folks might want to consider taking earplugs with them as it was headache-inducing. I am sick and tired of make-belief movies where every fantastic danger is meant with an even more fantastic solution which is met by an more fantastic danger which is met be an even more fantastic solution
and on and on it goes. Im sure it was only a bit over 2 hours long but it felt like 5 and I couldnt wait for it to end. Computer animations are a fact of life in movie making and thus here to stay
.but I think that in this case, while expected to be plentiful, it actually detracted much from the movie and it would have been a far better movie if it had of had about 1/10 of the computer animations. Id give it a miss.
I saw Les Miserables today. In a word, awesome. They sold so many tickets at my multiplex that they had open another theater and show it there simultaneously. Jackman and Hathaway deserve Oscars although Crowe was a little weak, in my opinion.
I have seen the play and several scenes, such as “Empty Chairs and Empty Tables,” come off much more powerfully on the screen than on stage.
I reccamend Jack Reacher...very entertaining.
“I was thinking that the theatre might be full of single women. “
Thanks for the tip. As a newly single guy; I know what movie I am heading to.
Long day, shallow thinking! Thanks for the correction.
Same here. I refuse to give the liberal idiots one.damn.penny.
I think Anne Hathaway’s character is Fontine.
I can’t go to the movies anymore either. My money is tight and that’s the last place I’d spend it these days- certainly do not need to be spending those dollars propping up the Hollywood lifestyles
We saw Argo today. Very well done. Great except for the carter VoiceOver at the very end.
