Movie Phantom of the Opera??
Has anyone fallen in love with this movie like I have? I saw it when it came out a few years ago and thought it was okay. I have recently seen it again and WOW what a wonderful movie!!! I love the love songs and the Phantom...he sure is a handsome one no matter whats under that mask.

Just wondered if there was anyone else here that knows what I'm "talking" about with this movie.

Oh, yes.
This version's all right- I'm just glad they didn't go with a sixty-year old Micheal Crawford.
Emmy Rossum drove me up a wall, but Gerard Butler? I adored him. Good voice, even if he couldn't quite hit all of those high notes- the fact that he is seriously seriously attractive may have, um, helped my opinion on that.
But yeah, it's a pretty good movie. (If you loved the movie, you'll love these: http://www.m15m.livejournal.com) Find Phantom of the Opera in Fifteen minutes, and prepare to laugh.
A lot.

My 15-year-old niece and my 9-year-old daughter love this movie! Personally, I don't care for the movie, but Gerard Butler is dreamy.

I am a PHANTOM FREAK, I've seen the "show" 9 times in four theaters (Broadway, Toronoto, Buffalo and DC). The score is my ALL TIME FAVORITE piece of music.

I saw the movie and loved the music but wasn't paticularly impressed with the movie itself. But HEY, it's the PHANTOM so ya GOTTA LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Michael Crawford will ALWAYS be THE Phantom as far as I'm concerned.

Trippy, I was unable to get to the link you posted. Can you try it again?

I saw the play when I lived in Anchorage, Alaska. It was wonderful. I LOVE this movie even better. I Tivo'd the movie last week but today ordered the dvd just in case someone were to delete the movie. I'm waiting for the book to come in the mail too. I just received the movie soundtrack too....I'm hooked!!!

I think he sang beautifully. I like that his voice is rough in spots. I found it all just perfect.

My daughter and I rented this movie when it first came out for a girls' night. It was a little strange to us, at first, but it grew on us. I've since given her the movie as a gift. I've also purchased several of the tracks for my PDA and converted one of the songs into a ringtone.

I love this movie as well. Gerard Butler AND Patrick Wilson.

I love the part at the beginning where the air blows and it goes back in time....fantastic effect.

I took my DH to see the performance and he loved it so much he just asked the other day if we could go again. I have made a theater convert!

I saw it too.
My sister visited me years ago when we lived in Alaska. My dh surprised us with tickets to see it on stage. It was so good.

But I have to say I LOVE this movie version even more. The music is so beautiful and its such a great love story. It's my all time "favorite" right now.
