Tonight is the night, the 87th annual Academy Awards. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to see every movie like I did last year. But I still attempted to make picks based on the movies I had seen.

Les Misérables is one of the most successful stage musicals of all time, having played in London and around the world for over 25 years. However, the classic musical had never received a full on film adaptation, until now. And it lives up to the source material, providing an equally engaging and entertaining musical tragedy that is rarely seen in film musicals. Starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried, the Tom Hooper directed film follows Jackman’s Jean Valjean and the people around him, superimposed on the French Revolution. Watch the trailer after the jump and the read my review.
