My thoughts,rating and overall movie experience:
Many thanks to Aunt Susan who treated us for this wonderful Christmas movie it's been quite part of the tradition in our family to watch and go to the movies every year well except for last year. But anyway, I got some ideas about the movie I managed to get a glimpse of some parts from the trailer and advertisements etc. it's been a couple of years since I actually watched the other versions so yeah truly looking forward watching them all unfold.
The Child Cosette is so adorable and absolutely perfect for the role then Amanda Seyfried is the perfect grown up match Cosette and Eddie Redmayne (Marius) he's so french they are the perfect couple in this movie ever! Their love triangle in which I feel so sorry for Samantha Barks (Éponine)
The moment I saw that they cut off Anne's hair I know for sure that she's gonna win an award!
and she did a wonderful job! she sang her heart out,portrayed a vulnerable character,flexible in many ways.
Sacha Baron Cohen (Thénardier) and Helena Bonham Carter (Madame Thénardier) these two made me laugh a lot of times! Master of the house is one of my all time favorite number such a Cray cray couple.
Éponine, took number one with her ON MY OWN song (timeless piece ever!)
OMG! look at Samantha Barks's tiny waist :O I wish and would like mine's like that haha! I think that's the first one I noticed and the next would have to be is that she's quite a look a like of the one playing Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) in Once upon a time
I haven't heard or know Samantha until I googled her apparently she's been through a lot of broadway shows or so yeah! amazing voice and lovely too.
The last scene in the movie actually is truly a tear jerker I thought I'm the only one but then I heard quite a number of sniffles here and there so I'm relieved I'm not alone! haha! I'll give this movie a 5 out of 5 stars it made me cry especially towards the end I wouldn't even thought of it but the way the musical goes and spoke to my heart w:Ow I actually got a heart! haha! I would most definitely buy this in Blu-ray!
