Brother/Sister relationships are the best. Here's a good example of what Max's/mine looks like:
(Yes, I literally sat here and transcribed our entire text conversation from this morning - complete with pictures - as Max was waiting for his flight (internship in AUSTRIA, nbd))
M: *weeping at the airport listening to Les Mis*
J: "To love another person is to see the face of God" like wut [cry emoji]
M: "He gave me hope when hope was gone, he gave me strength to journey on" [cry emoji]
literally just teared up typing that hahahah
J: Haha me too
"the very words that they had sung became their last communion"
beep you javert
M: Hahaha javert is not lit but so lit
J: Haha true. Now I have to watch Les Mis
M: that dvd of the live les mis performance is the best
with black javert and alfie boe
J: yeah but
the movie has Eddie Redmayne so
what you don't like Nick Jonas as Marius...
J: Haha I'm too distracted by Amanda Seyfried's annoying vibrato
M: Real talk. That movie is like half perfection half worst movie ever
J: For real! Like just get it right, people
M: "I am warning you javert! I'm a stronger man by far! There is POWER in me yet! My race is not yet ruNNNNNNNN!!!"
J: Beep I just got chills.
When "do you hear the people sing" come in at the very end
M: So sick!!! Omb I'm crying in the airport Hahaha
When valjean admits he's "246...0 ONEEEEEEEEE!"
M: "And so Javert, you see it's TRUE! This man bears no more guilt than youuuu...."
How he hits that note so well is beyond me hahah
J: I'm driving around so Jack will fall asleep and I can go watch in peace haha
J: Hahahaha! Straight up.
M: I can just see you in the car "Victory!!! We have victory!!!"
J: Hahahaha there is literally NOTHING more suited to memes than LOTR
M: One for every situation
J: I just spent ten minutes looking for a meme to describe how I'll feel if Jack wakes up when we go inside
J: Pulled over at a random gas station
Didn't get gas
M: No shame
J: LOOK DOWN
M: IT IS LIT
That opening scene is killer
J: Totally nailed it
M: Ya that movie isn't perfect but that opening is so cool
J: "Sweet Jesus doesn't care" so brutal
Yeah whoever thought of the shipyard should get an extra mil
M: "Look down! Look down!! You're here until you die!!!"
J: Hugh Jackman picking up the giant mast BY HIMSELF
Dragging the torn french flag. So perfect!
M:*lifts mast by himself* me:
J: Hahahahaha! That's easily one of the very best memes
J: Little Jack getting his first Les Mis education
M: I know hahaha so good. Jack looks into it
J: Yeah he actually totally is
*sniff* so proud
How do you feel about Russell Crowe in this
M: His acting is great but he can't sing for beep
Javert has some of the coolest songs in teh whole show. I also thought he wasn't BA enough
Like Javert isn't playing games
J: Yeah I was disappointed. Russell was like an irritated monkey, not an imposing lion
Can't sing for beep haha
M: Ya in my opinion Javert is supposed to be super imposing and extremely intimidating
Like you wouldn't ever dream of crossing him
J: Like the most intense scariest gestapo but even scarier
M: Russell is just kind of old
J: I don't cower when I see Russell
M: Which is weird because he's the scariest in gladiator and master and commander!
J: Yeah, I don't know why he didn't turn up for this
M: People were really turned off by it.
J: Hugh Jackman makes up for it
M: I was literally just typing that haha
J: Like I'll still always watch it because of him
M: He went all out for this
But totally genuine
I guess that's it, I don't believe javert but Hugh IS valjean
M: Totally agree
Especially in the beginning when he gets the candlesticks
J: Yeah that's what I'm watching rn
"the world that always hated me"
M: And is just so distraught that he would do something like that
J: "instead of offers me my freedom...I feel my shame inside me like a knife"
M: totally inspired
J: "he told me I have a soul...how does he know?"
Gosh he just GOES for it. WHy aren't you here watching with me?!
M: Ugh. When the cops take him back to the monastery but then he tells him that he forgot the candlesticks I just weep every time.
I'm convinced that kindness like that is what is required to save the world.
Pure love for a perfect stranger
J: It's so beautiful
It's not blind love but it's totally forgiving
M: Valjean is thinking he would rather die than go back to a slave camp and then this man just saves his life
Ugh. So amazing
J: Not to mention that he was only there because he treid to help feed a child
M: The cinematography there is so beautiful too up on that mountain at sunrise
J: I love how the bishop of a production has often played valjean in the past
Yeah, on top of the mountain
M: Ya such a cool tradition
Have you seen les mis live?
J: Um well I was in it in high school but I don't actually think I've seen it, now that I think about it
M: Mom said it's gonna be in KC so we'll need to see it for sure
M: I Love how loud that recurring segment of music is in the show
LIke the part that is in the beginning of one day more
J: Yup. It's ideal musical writing.
M: Beep I wish I was watching it!!!
J: Me too!
M: [crying emoji] have fun I'm just taking off now [airplane emoji]
J: Love you! Safe travels!
M: Love you too!
