3 Love Lessons From “Les Misérables”

I could gush all day about the 2012 film adaptation of “Les Misérables.” It’s everything a movie musical should be. The film itself is like a love letter from the director (Tom Hooper) to the musical’s original creators that says: Your work is perfection on stage. Let’s do it justice on film. And he succeeded.

But alas, this isn’t a review, so I’ll refrain from gushing and introduce instead three of the film’s most poignant love lessons:

1. Check yourself. The next time you get all self-pitying about your love life (Why hasn’t he texted me yet?!), consider a small dose of “Les Mis.” Once you hear Fantine’s (played by Anne Hathway) gutwrenching tale of lost love in the show-stopping ballad “I Dreamed A Dream,” your petty problems will fall instantly into perspective … that is, unless you also lost your job as an 1823 French factory worker when you were outed for having an illegitimate child and were subsequently relegated to a life of prostitution that consumed your soul and ultimately ended your life. No? Okay then. Read more…

  • Be still my beating nerd heart — the next film in the “Star Trek” reboot series from JJ Abrams, “Star Trek Into Darkness,” has finally got a synopsis, lending many a clue as to which villain Benedict Cumberbatch will be playing. Will it be the long-rumored Khan? Or someone a little more obscure? [The Mary Sue]
  • What is the zombies from “The Walking Dead” were armed with light sabers? [The FW]
  • I’ve never noticed this, maybe because I ALWAYS tell the truth, but apparently your nose heats up when you’re lying. Find out why… [Newser]
  • So those new “Star Wars” movies that everyone has been talking about? They may turn out to be spinoffs not sequels, which sounds way more exciting to me. Can Boba Fett finally get his own movie please? [Next Movie]

Ryan Gosling Sings
Watch a tween Gosling sing and dance in a Mormon talent show. Watch »

Well, call me crazy, but I think Ryan Gosling looks pretty goddamn hot all bloodied and bruised and swollen in the just released poster for his upcoming film “Only God Forgives.” I don’t know who’s to blame, but someone hand me an ice pack and I’ll be his nurse, mmkay?

Tina Fey + Paul Rudd = HELL YES

Far be it from me to ever speak ill of Tina Fey. Or Paul Rudd. And definitely not Tina Fey and Paul Rudd (and Wallace Shawn!). But I just have to be honest: the plot of “Admission” looks really stupid. Fey plays an admissions counselor at Princeton and Rudd plays a sensitive single dad who runs a high school for troubled kids … and they fall in love … but Rudd just so happens to have a student he thinks is a child Fey gave up for adoption many years ago. Huh? This sounds as convoluted as an episode of “Gossip Girl.” But whatever. I will see it. Tina Fey and Paul Rudd!
