The credit roll version of Someday on the UK release of Hunchback of Notre was performed by Eternal. Eternal is another R&B group from the 90s. Their redition has more convention instrumental. Again this song has that 90s twinge to it, that is hard to over look. Again they have that classic 90 vocalization.  However it’s well sung and like All 4 one, it’s a heartfelt performance. Eternal’s Redition is less gentle than All 4 One and has more power in the vocals.

The biggest problem with it, is the video. They re-create the Feast of Fools complete with jugglers and a Clopin double. However this just doesn’t work. Someday is a heartfelt song about a hope for the betterment of humanity, so why am I seeing a cheap renaissance fair in the background. Also I don’t think their costume fit in with the whole Ren thing either. When I think of early Renaissance/Late Medieval, I don’t think of blue jump suit but to each their own. I’m also not a big fan of the hard cut of film. So good cover, bad video.

I admit it, I’m not an R&B fan. It’s never appeal to whatever music taste I have. When I was younger I didn’t care for All 4 One’s Redition of Someday during the Credit Roll. As I listen to now though I don’t hate it. In fact, I rather like it.

My biggest problem with it, is it reeks of that very, very typical 1990 style. I can’t even describe it, but I know it’s there. Those smooth vocal gymanast they loved to do back then, that electric piano, etc. It just is soaked with musical mid-90s trend. That being said despite the 1990 style and R&B, I think they give a heartful redidtion of it. I even enjoyed the music video of it. It’s simple but effective.

The group is standing in street while clips of the movie radom play in clouds, sunglasses, ect. It doesn’t have to much more. Maybe it my hobby editting that I like that film clips as overlay instead of hard edits, I think it just works better with the mood of the song.

Really I thought I was going to get snarky with this but other than the stinky 90s of it I have nothing to said, All 4 One version of Someday was Good and I bet if Hunchback of Notre Dame came out now, Disney would have push for an Oscar.

All signs  point signs point  to yes! Helena Bonham Carter has been cast in the upcoming  Les Miserables movie as Madame Thenardier. And Since Tim Burton is the frontrunner as Director of “Hunchback” she’ll be probably be in that as well.

Also Hugh Jackman is playing Jean Valjean and Russell Crowe has reportedly accepted the role of Inspector Javert. I can’t really picture Crowe as Javert but maybe my conception of Javert is different from the Hollywood casting person.

I know this movie is going to be a musical but I think it would have been ironic if Claire Danes had played Fantine. After all she did play Cossette in the 1998 version.    I still don’t agree with Hathaway as Fantine and Crowe as Javert causes me to raise as eyebrow, but I’m not a casting director and they didn’t ask me either.

I’ve been informed by a very big fan of Notre Dame on Squidoo, that Matt Laurent has confirmed he’ll play Quasimodo in the Asian Tour cast of Notre Dame de Paris. To read the comment click here. Comments are at the bottom.

I’m not surpise that Matt Laurent is going to play Quasimodo agian. He was an alternative in teh original cast, and he play Quasimodo in the Asian Tour. And Since he’s Canadian he speaks English. He also a decent singer, so I have no problem with this casting. The rest of the cast we’ll see.

Please Note – I’m not 100% sure if this is Nadia Bel or Chiara Di Bari, Looking at pictures of them I think it’s Nadia Bel, however  if I’m wrong let me know and I’ll fix it, though I like 98% sure of it.

Edit – Change World to Asian. For more info on casting click here

The Disney Main Female is more of a canon than a line of characters that Disney deems as important. So are Esmeralda’s behaviors in Hunchback of Notre Dame applicable to how other so call Disney’s Princess Behaviors?

( Note There are 21 Rules, they write 16 twice, Video is meant to be funny)

Because I’m not counting the parental questions that makes 19 in total. She scores 13.5.   13.5/19 = 71%

Well, well, well Esmeralda acts more like a Disney Princess than some give her credit for, too bad she doesn’t cry or have Parental units.

What do you people think, should Esmeralda be made a Disney Princess? Remember, it’s an archetype not a hierarchical position.

The Someday reviews are coming… someday (Lame Joke, tis my destiny)

 

Someday Demo Reel Disney Hunchback of Notre Dame image picture

Someday Demo Reel Disney Hunchback of Notre Dame

Someday was originally written to replace God help the Outcast. The idea was the directors wanted a bigger number for Esmeralda praying in Notre Dame, so Someday was written. Upon comparing the two, they decided to go for the quieter number which was Outcast.  Ultimately I prefer Someday to “God Help the Outcast.” I have to agree with the reasoning, that a big athematic song in a place like Notre Dame isn’t a smart chose for a number, so I understand why they went with it. But I do find “God Help the Outcast” to be not as humble or mature as Someday. Outcast is about Outcasts and Someday is about all people coming to together. It’s about a hope for the betterment of everyone.  The song doesn’t have make over-confident boosting or the juxtaposition of Nobility asking God for selfish gains to sound more humble.

Here’s the trouble with Someday; There are four different versions of this song. You have the original version, that was delated from the movie in lieu of “God help the Outcast” performed by Heidi Mollenhauer, The U.S Credit Roll by One 4 All, the U.K Credit Roll by Eternal, and The rendition from  the German musical Der Glockner Von Notre Dame called “Einmal.” Each Version has a different feeling so it’s a little hard to review them together. So I’m not going to. Over the next few post I’ll look at each one. Then I’ll compare them a little bit. That’s Plan Anyway!

 

First up – The U.S Credit Roll

 

A silly video using Victor Hugo Frollo as it’s base. The credits are funny too. By  

 

Quasimodo accepted by the people Hunchback of Notre Dame Disney picture image

Quasimodo accepted by the people Disney Hunchback of Notre dame

After Frollo dies, the hellish lava goes away and the masses are happy.  This is when Quasimodo, the lovable abet not too pretty hero emerges from the darkness and silence of Notre Dame to be  greeted with the acceptance of the people. Why is he now welcome? I think for saving Esmeralda and saying  “No” to Frollo. It’s not for killing Frollo, Notre Dame and Frollo’s haste took care of that.

So as Quasimodo is being cheered, Clopin reprises the Bells of Notre Dame. Just in case you’re a complete moron the movie clearly shows the audience who the Monster was, the Frollo puppet. To think this whole time I just thought it was Frollo, Twist ending here; it was the Puppet! The man was Quasimodo, no surprise there.

Clopin Reprise of Bells of Notre Dame Disney Hunchback of Notre Dame

 

If you like Bells of Notre Dame, you’ll like the Reprise. It is sung well by Clopin (as to be expected now from Paul Kandal). It’s a bit repetitive though, not sure how times the word “Bells” is uttered but it’s a lot. The lyrics are also a little strange;

Whatever their pitch, you
Can Feel the bewitch you
The rich and ritual knell

He saying  that the Ringing Bells have an effect of people. So was it the bells that made Frollo crazy with lust? I mean it says the Bells bewitch. Quasimodo did ring the bells right before  Hellfire, and you only see him doing it once in the movie. So the Bells were the Frollo puppet accomplice.  Of course, it all makes sense. The Puppet couldn’t stand that Frollo had all the power, so he harnessed the ancient Deus ex Machina power of the Bells to make Frollo crazy which would led to his death  by Notre Dame, of course! I figured you out, movie. This makes the Bells and the Frollo Puppet the heroes and villains. Touché Disney, I didn’t know you were so complicated. Truly this twist rivals M. Night Shyamalan.

On an unrelated note, the song is a good ending, you get a curtain call: Quasimodo is happy to be “out there” “in the sun” with the “ordinary men.”  The Gargoyles are happy that the people now love  “a guy like” Quasimodo.  Esmeralda is happy because Notre Dame (Mary) “helped the outcasts”. Phoebus is happy because his ex boss is dead and he has a hot new girlfriend. Djali and Clopin are happy because the sanction of street performers had lifted with Frollo’s death and now they don‘t have to pay the Busker Tax. The only person who isn’t happy in all this is the Old Heretic, he fell into a sewer and was never to heard from again. They say on quiet nights you can heard an old man saying “Dang it.”

Since the film ends with the same song as it began with, it’s only that it ends with a pull away though the sky above the Notre Dame.  It’s appropriate yet a little cheesy but it’s better that ending on a stain glass window that show all the main characters, a la Beauty and the Beast  or a stupid page peel by the Genie in Aladdin. Though it would be funny to have the Genie pop up in random Disney Movies saying “made you look” at the end.

Notre Dame de Paris 2012 Tour

According to General Entertainment Associates there will be a 2012 Tour of Notre Dame de Paris. The Languge will be in English and it has not been re-translated. The original English Translation that Will Jenning wrote will be used. Personally I wish it was re-translated it. Some of the songs are fine but more than a few are not. Some the lyrics are just down right laughable.

The website goes into specific of show’s history but other than it being a year long touring cast, that will be performed in English there is no news on casting, dates, or location. I’ll try to stay informed.

Confirmed Casting –

Matt Laurent as Quasimodo

Robert Marien as Frollo

Myriam Brousseau as the alternate for Esmeralda and Fleur de Lys

Edit- I’m not sure, but I think it maybe regarding the Asian Tour Cast. For More info on Casting Click Here
