Cool Videos: Les Miserables gets a musical Honest Trailer

Mar. 27, 2013by:

With LES MISERABLES hitting Blu-ray this week, it seems to be the perfect time for a brand new Honest Trailer. This also marks a momentous occasion for the series of web videos as this is the first completely musical Honest Trailer! Witness every single bit of narration sung, even when they don't have to be!

I saw LES MISERABLES when it first opened and it is a very good movie with two very specific drawbacks: Amanda Seyfried and Russell Crowe. Apart from those two tone def actors, the movie is excellent. I was surprised at how good Hugh Jackman was and I think if LINCOLN had not come out this year that he would have won Best Actor.

A fully sung-through musical is a very interesting style for a movie as hearing everything in a sing-song manner can be a bit off putting, but director Tom Hooper pulls it off pretty effectively. I am not a huge musical fan, but LES MISERABLES was a pleasant experience, despite the emotionally crushing and depressing plot. But, if you are in the mood for a sumptuous Hollywood style musical epic, this is for you. Everyone else, check out the Honest Trailer below.

Mostly very funny! Their complaint that everything is sung is stupid and baseless, it's a goddamned musical, damn near opera really. However, with this flaccid piece of shit film being the worst movie I have ever had the displeasure of seeing (while the stage show is my favorite stage musical of all time), I am pleased with anything that knocks it down a few pegs.

Honest Trailers is speaking more truth than comedy

Will admit though, I enjoyed Russell Crowe in the film, and I enjoyed the film for the most part
but......the film is too damn LONG!!!!!!
Which is something I don't usually complain about.

That Les Miserables is almost through-sung is actually one of the things I really like. There actually are still some lines that were spoken in the film that were sung in the stage version. As a lifelong fan of the musical, I enjoyed the movie on the whole but do agree with some of the points brought up in the trailer. And their impression of Hugh Jackman's singing voice was spot-on.

Hilarious! But cold have taken it further for sure. Les Mis was one of the worst directed, worst shot, and worst acted films I saw last year. And the singing! Nails down a chalkboard. Inept from start to end.

I am very pleased to hear someone say that as well! It is the worst movie I have ever seen; mainly by failing to be visually engaging and differentiate itself from the stage show at all. I could get drunk and see the stage show, with binoculars, and have the same viewing experience, and a better auditory one since there'd be no Russell Crowd!

Totally. Crowe was shocking but not nearly as irritating as Jackman with his awful fucking bleat of a singing voice. That vibrato...

The whole thing was a fucking disaster, I've never seen such relentlessly inept filmmaking. It's the least cinematic epic I've ever had the misfortune to sit through.
