Movie Review: Les Miserables

‘I dreamed a dream’ about a musical with Catwoman in 19th Century France bellowing out this ballad:

There was a time when a Wolverine was kind

When his voice was soft

And his words conniving

There was a time when Gladiator died

And the movie was a song

And the song was excruciating

There was a time...

Then it all went wrong

 

I dreamed a dream in time gone by

When Oscar hope was high

And a film worth rating

I dreamed that Anne would never die

I dreamed that credits would be appearing

When I was typing and unafraid

And stars were made and used and wasted

There was no pre-rehearsal to be paid

No song unsung, no wine, untasted

 

But the Soldiers come at night

With their cannons loud as thunder

As they tear your hope apart

And they turn your dream to shame

 

I slept a lot with Kiki by my side

I filled my mind with endless wonder

I took my reviewer duties in stride

But I was gone when Russell Crowe sang!

 

I had a dream this movie would be

So different from this hell I’m living

So different from what it seemed...

Now Hugh Jackman has killed the dream I dreamed.
