Review: Les Miserables, Episode Six (Part 1)

Readers, for the sixth and final(ish) time, welcome back to my review of BBC’s miniseries, Les Miserables - episode 6, part 1. I have so much to say that we're just going to have to slice this up across two posts...all the more ...

Review: Les Miserables, Episode Five

Readers, you are welcomed to the fifth week of Victor Hugo-inspired raving! What's eerily prescient about this episode is the way in which it echoes the ongoing real-life protests by the gilet jaunes, a French grassroots activist group ...

Review: Les Miserables, Episode Four

Reflecting so far on the miniseries Les Misérables, it’s been a fantastic ride. Jean Valjean has completely turned his life around from convicted felon to mayor and employer of an entire town; afterwards, he makes amends...

Review: Les Miserables, Episode Three

To say that I was in shock after this week's episode would be a monumental understatement. Aside from the fact that I have been completely awestruck by Dominic West’s performance throughout the first and second episodes, there ha...

Review: Les Miserables, Episode Two

Welcome back! After last week’s pilot, I’m really glad to say that the BBC adaptation of Les Misérables is soaring. Thanks to the enduring patience of Flixist’s US writers, who have given me free reign to cover wh...

New Releases, week of 3/23/13: Les Little People Edition

Back from warm and awful nice Austin to the cold, jerk-filled New York and what do I see? Lots of major releases out this week on DVD and Blu-ray. (Worst thing about Austin by the way: limited free wifi at the airport. Damn you, Boingo.) So...

Flixist Awards 2012: Most Promising New Performer

Sometimes it can take years and years of work to become good at something. Malcom Gladwell cites the 10,000-Hour Rule a bunch in his book Outliers to suggest that genius in various professions requires that much time, effort, and practice. ...

Flixist Awards 2012: Best Supporting Actress

Perhaps the most interesting thing about 2012's award season was how much stock was put into some of the supporting performances. Usually, supporting actors and actresses play second fiddle to the leading characters, and when awards time co...

The best damn Oscar predictions around: 2013 edition

Why Tom Hooper deserves a Razzie for Les MisÚrables

When film critic David Thompson wrote his list of worst films of 2012, he added a note which read, "The worst have to come from those that thought they could be the best." Although I don't agree with his list (which includes Looper), I coul...

Review: Les Miserables

I have an unfortunate fear that a lot of people won't go to see Les Misérables because it's a musical. Please do not be that guy. Don't miss out on what is easily one of the best movies of the year because you think musicals are...
