Why So Sad? Win ‘Les Miserables’ on Blu-ray!

You didn’t think we were done with our contest streak yet, did you? This week, High-Def Digest would like to offer our readers a chance to win a copy of the Oscar winning musical ‘Les Misérables’ on Blu-ray. Now that’s something to sing about!

Nominated for eight Oscars in all, ‘Les Misérables‘ walked home with three trophies, including a win for Anne Hathaway as Best Supporting Actress. With almost $150 million in box office grosses, the adaptation of the smash hit Broadway play also proved that the musical genre isn’t quite dead with movie audiences yet.

To win a copy of the Blu-ray, all you have to do is participate in our photo caption contest by giving us a funny or clever caption for the following image. Click to enlarge:

For example:

What have I done?
Sweet Jesus, what have I done?
I’ve played fearsome Wolverine
Sung sweetly like Ben Vereen
I have hosted the Tonys
The Oscars and SNL
Yet by no success will my regrets be quelled
Must my legacy be my greatest failing?
Dear god, tell me, why did I make Van Helsing?

Now, you don’t necessary have to post your entries in song verse, but I will be very impressed with those who do.

Alternately, you could also try something simpler, such as: “OMFG, somebody please make Russell Crowe stop singing!”

We have one copy of the Blu-ray to give away. The winner will be chosen at our own subjective discretion based on whichever responses we enjoy the most. Entries are limited to 10 per person. That should give you plenty of opportunity to craft a good submission, but will also help us to avoid any potential appearance of awarding prizes based on volume rather than quality. (Please heed this limit. You will be taken out of consideration if you submit more than 10 entries.) All entries must be submitted in the Comments section of this blog post. Please do not attempt to email them to me.

This contest is only open to entrants from the domestic United States. We will not ship internationally (whether you’re a U.S. citizen or not). Employees of High-Def Digest or Internet Brands and their families are not eligible. Standard contest rules and conditions apply. People who have won any of our previous contests within the past one year are also not eligible to win, but may get Honorable Mentions.

The deadline for entry is Friday, April 5th. The winners will be announced the following week. Good luck!

    My god! Crowe’s singing is an absolute abomination of sin! It would send children and adults running for the mountains, and make die hards hurl.

  2. Andrew

    My God! Crowe’s singing is an absolute sin to the heavens! Sounds like he’s taking a massively huge SHIT!

    “Look at me! I’m a Hungry Hungry Hippo! You know, because I’m opening my mouth, and that’s what the hippos did to eat those little pearl-y thi— yeah, you got it. How genius am I? Haha. I’m so funny and charming, even while on the set of such a depressing movie. I wish everyone was a bit more like me. Hahaha…”

    In a remake of a famous Ghostbusters scene, Jean gets a blowjob from the ghost of Fontane.

    You are going to inject me with what? Why would I want to live forever? I’ve lost Fontane and Cossette is leaving me, why would I want to wait 150 years before Jean is even born and Professor X finds me. Wait, my name is Jean. I got to change my name, no chick would date a guy with the same name as her. She would end up with some cyclops monster before she would date a guy like me. So yeah, I’ll change my name and keep my background quiet. I’ve kept my background quiet from Cossette for the past 10 years, I should have no issues keeping it quiet from the X-Men.

    In this emotional Les Mis scene, Tom Hooper’s choice of live singing extends to live scenarios. Off camera-right is John Travolta aiming a gun to Hugh Jackman, and off camera-down is the back of a blonde’s head in Jackman’s lap.

      Yes, do scroll back up to the picture and imagine it with the Swordfish scenario. Except for the costume and hair, it could be a screen shot from Swordfish.

  7. 4. In this deleted scene, long since cut from the original stage version, Hugh Jackman performs the little known song “Mouthbreathers”.

  8. 5. Jackman became just another in a long line of celebrities to fall victim to bad plastic surgery thanks to a neck tuck that left him unable to close his mouth.

  9. Anne Hathaway..I saw your boobs in Havoc, and in Love and Other Drugs, and in Brokeback Mountain,and on stage at the Oscars, and at the after party, and on the ride home….
