Some cast interviews are starting to come out, this is the only longer one I've found so far.  It features Hugh, Anne, Amanda, Eddie and Sam:

I've been really impressed with what I've seen so far, I'm still slightly concerned about Russell's 'Stars'. I think Eddie is going to get some high praise indeed for his performance, and him and Amanda make one good looking couple.

One little thing is annoying me. In the trailer Marius asks Eponine "Who is that girl?" and she tells him that its Cosette, yet in the clip we saw he sings, "I do not even know your name..".

The who is that girl line is cut from the movie

I envy you having seen the film already, Rooster Byron. Where did you see it?

Out of curiosity, then, does the combination of the very fact that you have seen the film early and that you are able to confirm the cut of those words about Cosette's name in the film, as opposed to the clip (in the throws of a single(?) view of a film, I am not too sure that detail would have been noticed), indicate that you may actually be connected to it in some way? Very interesting if you are. Are you?

But aside from that, I have to say that I have empathy with your trying to steer prematurely judgemental attitudes in a more appropriate direction too. It obviously helps to be able to speak from the perspective of having actually seen the film, but judgementalism on the basis of inadequate or non-existent knowledge is always something that irritates me (whatever the issue). But it was gently done and appropriate, even if I am wondering a tiny bit (interested, probably better word) re you motivation. .

Criticising something isn't exactly the same as being judgemental, though, especially if it's based on clips that have been released. I didn't realise there was some rule that everyone must always love everything no matter what their honest impressions are.

Thank you Poster J for those clips, I was very pleased to get a litle insight.

On the whole I would say it's very difficult to get a real flavour as clips are notorious for giving the viewer/listener an impression which seeing the film in its entirity changes dramatically.

On the face of it the star of the fillm for me is by far Anne Hathaway. I'm pretty underwhelmed by Russell Crowe but I admit I  have never been a fan of his. Perhaps my mind will be changed on seeing the movie. Hugh Jackman's acting is suberb but again he isn't hitting my buttons vocally. It's difficult because a movie is a totally different ball park to the stage.

I can hardly hear Marius but Amanda Seyfried is working for me despite the fact I am not over fond of Cosette's role.

I would go and see this for Anne Hathwaway alone. She really blows me away on every level, very much looking forward to seeing the whole film now :)
