If you're in the United States, chances are you haven't heard of A Monster in Paris, a cute little animated film about about a giant flea who sings. It's better than it sounds, trust me--but it's still hasn't been released stateside yet, so here's this month's Know the Score with a glimpse of what you've been missing. (Note: Diva is a demon, and her advice is not meant to be taken seriously. Please don't sue.)
Next month's Know the Score was going to be a review of the soundtrack for the Les Miserables movie--which doesn't come out until Christmas Eve. (mutters and grumblings ensue) So, since it looks like we're not getting a good glimpse of this major movie musical's music until near the film release, why not go full hog? That's right, next month I'll be reviewing Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and the rest in an extra-special edition of Know the Score! And by extra-special, I mean it will be coming out a bit later than normal due to obvious scheduling issues. Specific date TBA, but I will try to have it out for you before the new year. Hopefully.
Located on a small expansion shelf about midway between the Third and Fourth Circles, Musical Hell is presided over by Diva, a minor demon charged with passing judgement on the worst musicals ever committed to film. (She still hasn't figured out if this is their punishment or hers.) Take a seat on the bench and have your earplugs ready, because court is now in session.
New videos posted on the first Monday of the month. Other viewpoints, news, and general ramblings posted when they crop up.
