Les Misérables - A Review Set to Music (2012)

From the minds that brought you comes one of the world's most beloved songs, stripped of all its sensitive lyrics and replaced with our review.  Simply click play and sing along, enter a majestic world of review enchantment - the world of, America's #1 self-referential website. 

And now, I Dreamed a Dream  (watch it in HD)

If you would like to further discuss my feelings about Les Miserables, please do so in the comments section below.  You can register in literally seconds, but the benefits last at least 47 weeks, maybe even a lifetime.

Also, if you can sing and want to provide us with your rendition of our lyrics set to this timing, please do.  We will substitute you into the video and give you full credit.


There was a time when hopes were high
When the buzz was good
And the trailer inviting
There was a time when I wouldn’t mind
that every word spoke a song
And the songs looked exciting
There was a time
Then it all went wrong

I dream of a time when shots were blocked
When cinematographers
seemed to be trying
I dreamed of more than close up shots
Is the art of shot composition dying
When every shot is tight and blurred
The camera operator seemed wasted
Has he heard of the rule of thirds
Shots came undone
An opportunity wasted

And all the casting wasn’t right
The weaker voice of Gladiator
As he tore the music notes apart
Anne’s overacting put him to shame

Wolverine performed just fine
Although some of his songs an endless blunder
Borat really hit his stride (great success)
But he was gone as quick he came

And still I dream it'll come to me...
that this film was somehow better
From the guy that brought us The King’s Speech
Thought he’d be a better director
I had a dream what this film would be
So different from this hell I'm seeing
So different now from what it seemed
Tom Looper has killed the dream I dreamed

6 out of 10 stars
