I loved almost all of it.
Russell Crowe..well the casting director should never be allowed near another musical if they thought he could sing Javert. Woeful. He absolutely butchered Stars, my favourite ever song, I wanted to cover my ears. When I get the DVD that will most definitely be muted! Acting was strong but in a sung through musical that's not enough.
Hugh Jackman did very well. Huge transformations physically and otherwise between the different phases of his life.
Oscars are well deserved. Was wary of Anne Hathaway but wow, she's the first Fantine I actually cared about and I've seen the show 3 times. In fact when I saw it on Broadway Daphne Rubin Vega (Original Mimi from Rent) was playing the part and after about 60 seconds of her being on stage my inner voice was saying "die Fantine die so I can enjoy the show".
Really liked Samantha Barks as Eponine, not a character I've loved in the stage show (along with Fantine). Not so enamoured with Amanda Seyfried though.
The large group numbers being put into context on the streets etc brought new emotion to them. I cried at most of them, wow. And as for Empty Chairs at Empty Tables..heartbreaking. Special shout out for cheeky chappy Gavroche, stole my heart.
Nice cameos by a legendary Valjean close to our hearts too.
Think that's about as much as I can say spoiler free
