..."Les Miserables." Hands down! Four thumbs up! Seventeen stars!
Okay, okay, I haven't seen it yet. But of course it's gonna be my favorite - how could it not be? Those trailers really do look amaaaaaaazing. (And arty!) From what I've seen so far, it looks like they've succeeded in turning a stage extravaganza into a film. (I know, I know, it's just the trailer. But I am cautiously optimistic.)
