Was just trying to think of alternate actors that were that high profile with singing voices that had some indication of range in colour and texture. Jackman's has always been very limited that way.
But don't ask me favours if you're gonna be a hater of this. I'll invoke Vertigo and Bu˝uel and Los Olvidados, so clearly inspired by Los Miserables even in its title! You should be loviong a movie that compells us into revolution and barricades! And singing! What's better than singing in barricades?
"I'm a firm believer in karma, and I think this situation is a huge learning lesson for me.
To grow and expand as a spiritual human being. I want to lead a country one day for all I know".
Still, you may have a point about singing atop barricades. Count me in as we drunkenly rampage through the streets of Toledo, climbing over each other to perch atop the mound of pestilence, scorning the seething masses below, farting in their general direction as we drink up pitcher after pitcher of Bu˝uelonis, and cry at Sally Field's third Oscar win.
It's a date!
Premature ejaculation ?!
Jess Cagle EW from the mag - I don't know if this has been posted- Anne Hathaways " I dreamed a dream" "probably the most poerful number ever performed in a movie musical" !
I know Jackman can sing, but WTF is he doing here? His "sing-acting" doesn't work for me.
Eddie Redmayne has the voice of an angel and I would do anything he told me I love him. Seyfried and Barks both sound good.
Crowe is a nightmare, Tveit is great, and LMAO at Carter and Cohen. WTF?
Jackman's voice was probably altered. In the official clips they've put out I've really liked his singing. As for his acting, I'll wait for a final judgement until I see the movie, but in the clips he looked like he was trying way too hard.
I really liked this clip. For one thing, unlike the others, you can actually hear the 70-piece orchestra Hooper keeps going on about. Jackman has always had a wobble in his voice on sustained notes--just listen to the London cast album from the revival of "Oklahoma"--and it's gotten worse in recent years. But I still thought he sounded decent in the clip.
