russel crowe singing isn't as awful as i thought he was going to be but he's not great either but whatever, i'll take it but wow amanda seyfried sounds really shakey and i wasn't expecting since i've heard her sing before and i know she's capable of better. i'll give her the benefit of the doubt but since it's only a couple of seconds but i'm hoping this isn't indicative of how she'll sound for the rest of the movie.

and i don't understand why the promotions for this movie constantly ignore samantha barks (unless her name was on the trailer and i totally missed it)?? i know she's not a big name but she still has a prominent part. at least include "introducing samantha barks" in your trailer or something. she doesn't even have a poster! maybe i just have a soft spot for her since she has dimples and i'm a sucker for those lol.
