2. The Extended Preview of Les Miserables on YouTube. I saw my first stage production of Les Mis sometime in the late 1990s. The Broadway tour made its way to Phoenix and my mom & I were able to score tickets. I remember sitting there in the dark and getting swept up in the story. By the end, I was openly bawling and raced out to buy the soundtrack that night. I wasn't sure if I wanted to see a movie version, as it may destroy my wonderful memory of the musical. Wolverine and the girl from The Princess Diaries? Really? Then I saw this preview. I started to cry all over again. Now I'm counting down the days until its theatrical release (Christmas Day). Anybody want to come babysit the day after Christmas?
