The Phantom of the Opera

My parents took me to see this musical when I was pretty young, and we had the music playing in our house quite frequently, but I couldn't really remember what it was all about. This film adaptation was well done, but I saw the stage version so many years ago I couldn't tell you if it was different.

There were a few places where the singing seemed a little off, but overall the acting/singing seemed pretty good. The story itself is a bit disturbing, but it kept my interest.

Hm, I don't even think I knew there was a movie out. I'll have to see it. Nate and I saw the Phantom show in Vegas a few years ago and it was really good. Shorter than the original, but still good.

Hehehe, you really haven't seen this yet? Wow. They did do a good job with it, but I remember (it has been quite a while since I've seen it) that I didn't like it much, and ruined the musical for me. I can't tell you why though...too long ago.
