I was not interested in seeing this until I found out the actors are singing live to film. That is an impressive risk.September 21, 2012 1:36 pm at 1:36 pm #514633
The drama geek girl in me is DYING to see this movie. I saw the play twice and almost drowned the person in front of me, I sobbed so hard.December 30, 2012 1:12 am at 1:12 am #514634
I saw this with my fiance who was dying to see it. @catnfiddle, she bawled about 20 times during the movie. I think you’ll like it.
I’ve seen the play (when it came to Cbus) and wasn’t too impressed. I have to say, I like the movie much more. I’m not big on musicals, but watching the big screen version really helps me understand the storyline. Watching a play, it was hard for me to understand the lyrics and dialogue.
Wolverine and Catwoman were incredible in this film. I was astounded by their performances and their singing. I really wish they had someone other then Crowe. He’s an average singer, which makes me scratch my head as to why he was cast.December 30, 2012 5:24 am at 5:24 am #514635
It was kind of meh for me. While I appreciated (most) of the singing and performances, Hooper’s inability to zoom out got really tiring after 2 1/2 hours. Sure its nice to see the actor’s up close, but its also nice to see the set design instead of someone’s uvula in the middle of I Dreamed a Dream.December 31, 2012 1:19 pm at 1:19 pm #514636
I’ve never seen the show so it was the first time for me.
It started out a little rough, as geoyui mentioned Crowe’s singing wasn’t that good IMO, so I was afraid I was about to sit through 2 1/2 hours of big name actors poorly singing… but it picked up and overall I enjoyed it.
