In the latest installment, Dana Stevens and David Haglund discuss Les Misérables, Tom Hooper's adaptation of the Victor Hugo classic, which stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, and Anne Hathaway, and which Dana Stevens reviewed last week. Is the singing good enough? Is the story interesting? Is Jean Valjean a superhero?
