    The Phantom of the Opera

    Everyone that I've talked to either said that they refused to see the movie or that they hated it. I'm just curious what other people thought of the movie. I loved it, it was absolutely amazing.

    Ask them if they have ever seen anything else by Andrew Lyod Weber? From what I have heard anyone who goes in expecting a regular movie is going to be dissapointed. It's an addaption from an Operetta! If you don't like Operetta's of course you won't like the movie.

    Personally though I'm really looking forward to it hitting my theaters! I've been familiar with the music for over 15 years and it's some of my favorite.

    I saw it over Christmas break, and I really liked it. I practially know the Bradway version by heart (though I've never seen it; I always miss it when it comes to Denver), and the movie stays very true to the musical, right down to almost all of the lines being sung. My only complaint is the Phantom, he really wasn't cast right. He's way too young, and his voice is somewhat weak. But all in all, it was a really fantastic experience. i don;t know how the movie visuals compare to the theatre production, but in my opinion, the movie just looked spectacular. Especially the opening sequence with the chandilier and 'Masquerede'.

    Andrew Lloyd Webber is a genius...my mom introduced me to broadway musicals and of the like at an early age and that will always be a part of my life. I remember listening to the Phantom of the Opera and The Very Best of Andrew Lloyd Webber millions of times. I even read the translated french story Le Fantôme de l'opéra by Gaston Leroux where Phantom of the Opera originated when I was in the 4th grade.

    Reviewers of this movie are comparing it to the musical and you can't do that. When you're there it makes you feel like you are part of it and the theatrical version can never do that. On the other hand I thought the movie was marvelous, and Andrew Lloyd Webber was very excited to use a very wide range orchestra instead of just using a good sized orchestra pit. I saw this movie 2 times and I'll probably see it again before it comes out to DVD. I will always love this story, and the music ALW composed for it. *gives two thumbs up*

    Haven't seen it, only due to personal taste that's all, I'm sure if I were into that kind of thing I would go see it. Who knows? I might go see it when I retire~
