Les Miz

Thursday, January 17, 2013

I haven't exercised yesterday or today as I feel under the weather. Usually that doesn't bother me but this is a congestion and hard to breathe type so I'm taking some time off and hoping this will pass quickly. This interupted sleeping last night too. I hate when that happens, so tired and then can't sleep. I'll end up napping today and that will throw off sleep for tonight too. Ahhh, such is life.

We went to see Les Miz yesterday and I have mixed feelings about it. I really like Hugh Jackman so I wanted to see this but wasn't sure about all the singing. I did find all the singing annoying and some of the words hard to understand. There were times I wished they would just talk. I think Hugh did an excellant job in this role and deserves an Oscar for it. I did not know the story beforehand as I tried to read the book but couldn't get thru it. The beginning and the end of the movie were good but it dragged somewhat in the middle and could have been shortened a lot. Overall, I am glad I saw it but would not watch it again.
I guess I prefer movies like "Jack Reacher" instead, more action that keeps on going.

    Okay you are now the Spark Movie Reviewer. Lol I want to go see Les Miz too. I also am a little unsure if I will like a drama all in song. But all the good talent in it makes me not want to resist it. If I get to it I will let you know wether I liked it or not. I did however really like when Hugh presented the Oscars and sang all the time, he is a great singer. He is the broadway kind of singer. Too bad you don't live down the street I would drop by pick you up and then we could compare notes afterwards over a nice cup of something hot but sugar free lol. Hugs

    I hope you're feeling better. It's terrible when you need the sleep, but can't get it.

    Movies with lots of singing aren't my favorites either.
