I used to listen to the musical soundtrack incessantly. Will look forward to seeing this movie, albeit en francais, when it comes out here.

great review, ant!

Thanks sula . Where r ya? I'm in the mood to talk about The Bomb again...

Democrat - enjoy! I hope you do like it, and I'd be surprised if you didn't, given that you are a TRUE Phantom fan.

My local paper gave it one star, and said dishwater has more dazzle than the actors in it

Hopefully I will see it over the holidays

wow.



wow.




wow.



That was AMAZING!!! What the heck are the critics talking about? We must be seeing a different movie. Gerard Butler's acting as phantom was outstanding, just with flicks of the eye you know if he is sad, or angry. The scenery was breathtaking, and the music will drive you to tears. Minnie Driver was priceless as Carlotta, she almost stole the show! My mom and I were crying the whole time (and I NEVER cry in movies). These were my emotions:


If you adore the musical, you will adore the movie. Ignore those bloody critics who don't know what they're talking about

Yes - he was quite dishy, wasn't he?

I always thought Christine had made a mistake choosing that stupid frat boy, and I'm glad the movie confirmed it - at least on a superficial level.

Minnie Driver was cool, wasn't she? Did you laugh when the Phantom dumped the entire curtain on her? Priceless. I also liked Miranda Richardson's Madame Giry and the backstory they added.. I also LOVED their moving the chandelier crashing to the end... I always thought it fitted better, then.

I SO want to see it again, but I'm stuck in Kuwait, dammit!

I want to see it again too. I plan to see it at least once before it goes out and then buying it on DVD.

Well come home from Kuwait and see it!! Gerard Butler

Ha ha, we said the same thing. I'd have picked the Phantom in a heart beat. He was just too sexy.


I want to see it again.

PS-I bought the soundtrack after seeing the movie. I already had the Michael Crawford/Sarah Brightman version, but the movie version is also very nice to have.

I'd go see it again with you.

U2democrat, you should read Susan Kay's "Phantom." It's an expansion/retelling of the original novel. It was written before the musical and I've always thought they might have borrowed a little from it. It's no masterpiece, but it's a fun read.

Yeah, I usually don't like Minnie Driver, but she did almost steal the show. Good comic relief on her part.

Did you like the musical? Because if you didn't like the musical I can't see why you would like the movie. I thought it was one of the best movies I have ever seen. The Chicago Tribune gave it ****1/2 out of ****. That's what I give it too. Obviously our opinions differ.
