  1. “It tries to pose questions about the nature of the legal system, but any subtlety gets lost among the explosions, gunfire and falling bodies.” Why is it then that I got the message that the movie was making? The justice system is flawed and screwed up. Why is it that this reviewer did not get that message? I thought it was a good film. Even my father liked the film, and me and him do not always agree on movies.
  2. I don’t know about this sequel. I don’t like some of the rumors that I’ve been reading, especially those concerning the character of Raoul. I know I’m thinking differently than ALW, but the Phantom and Christine just do not mix. Raoul is more Christine’s speed. I’m sure the songs and the singer and everyone one will be just fine, but I’m sure about the story line yet, and story line is important to me. I think I unconsciously want this sequel to do bad because I want my novel to be the sequel, LOL. Hey, a girl can dream, can’t she? In all seriousness, though, I’m not genius (I’m only a genius in my dreams).
  3. In all fairness, though, I don’t think people would care so much if MJ was still alive. I honestly say that death doesn’t change someone, but some people consider it taboo to mock someone who is dead. I’m not sure whether or not Gerry was mocking MJ. I really don’t know why I’m getting so upset over some stupid plant. It must be a woman thing.
  4. Whoever said that Gerry needed to be below the radar for a while, I agree. Doesn’t he realize that negative attention is not a good thing in people’s eyes? Now, Gerry seems like a nice enough guy, and I would hate to think he meant harm by that plant incident, but I do wonder why he did it in the first place. What made Gerry decide to hold a plant out the window with a blanket wrapped around it? I wish Gerry would go back to the days before 300. At least when he did stupid things, everyone didn’t know about it. I’m starting to miss the actor. All I’m seeing at times is some immature celebrity. Now, there is nothing wrong with being a big child (my father is sometimes, and he also has a morbid sense of humor at times), but Gerry honestly needs to calm down with his weird, spontaneous actions. He needs to think before he leaps, or he’s really going to get into serious trouble one day. I want the deep-thinking Gerry back, if he ever existed. Or was that just an illusion? But to crack a joke in this moment of seriousness, I hope that Gerry at least watered the plant. I’m starting to think that Gerry is not all there, and I don’t mean that in a bad way. A little insanity always helps an artist perfect his work in my opinion. I’m just saying that Gerry needs to think more before he speaks and he acts. I don’t think that’s too much to ask out of a 40 year old man. Then again, my father is older than Gerry, and I quite despise some of the things that come outs his [my father’s] mouth. Now, I will acknowledge that I’m not obsessed with Gerry, I’m obsessed with his voice and an idea that I have of him, an idea that does not always hold up (which makes sense, a person is rarely the same as an idea you have of him/her). I honestly need to find myself a boyfriend because I haven’t been feeling well since I heard about the plant incident, and I’ve been debating with myself whether or not I should call Gerry an idiot. Don’t bash me for my opinions. I generally do support Gerry in his strange moments but perhaps he went too far this time. I don’t know. I just know that if it wasn’t Gerry, I wouldn’t be affected so much. I wouldn’t be getting so upset if it was someone besides Gerry. I just want to know, Gerry, why? Why?
  5. Oh, that’s good to hear. I wasn’t scared at all reading Leroux’s book, but I don’t tend to feel too many emotions when I am reading. I feel more emotions when I am watching something. I am interested in getting this film for Christmas, though. Thanks for your words of encouragement.
  6. Has anyone seen the first film version of the Phantom of the Opera, the silent film version done in the 1920’s. I’ve heard that it’s supposed to be a horror film, and me and horror do not mix. I really want to see this film, but I want to know how scary it is. Is it really a horror, or is it more like a thriller? Thanks.
  7. This is just a little question of curiosity. I have listened to the Original London and the Original Canadian soundtracks, and in the song “the Phantom of the Opera,” there are the lines: Phantom: In all your fantasies you always knew, That man, that mystery, Christine: Were both in you. Phantom and Christine: And in this labyrinth where night is blind, The Phantom of the Opera is there Inside my/your mind. Why didn’t they sing those lines in the song “the Phantom of the Opera” in the movie?
  8. Hi. I am currently writing a Phantom of the Opera novel, and I know that several members of this forum have Phantom of the Opera novels published. If it’s not too much trouble, I would like to know what I need to do to get my novel published as soon as I have it finished, which should be done before I return to school. Do I need to put anything special in my novel? Thank you for your time and your help, and if I should be posting this somewhere else, please let me know. Thanks.
  9. I also wish that more had been said about Steve Barton, but sadly the character of Raoul is often neglected, even though there would be no love triangle without him. From what I’ve heard of Steve Barton, he sounded wonderful, and I personally liked his voice the best out of the three Original London Cast. I also enjoyed listening to Patrick Wilson. It was a good documentary, but too much attention on Sarah and Michael, even though it is understandable with Sarah because ALW composed the opera for her. Like Sarah or not, without her there would be no ALW Broadway musical known as the Phantom of the Opera. But I still wish more had been said about Steve Barton.
  10. I also got upset when ET mentioned that this movie was starring Jamie Foxx and said his name multiple times, while Gerry was only mentioned once. Nothing against Jamie Foxx, but Gerry’s role is just as important. Besides, Gerry is playing the “psycho,” and we all know how good he is at that type of role. I don’t know what it is about me and men who go insane in movies, lol, but I do love Gerry when he gets to act insane. I was going totally crazy when I heard Gerry speaking, even though I don’t remember a word that he said. I was giggling to myself and acting like a little school did. By the way, what did Gerry say?
  11. You're right, POTO should have gotten an award for the customs. I loved Emmy's white dress when the Phantom took her to his lair, her pink dress, and her Don Juan dress. I loved all of Gerry's customs. POTO should have won more awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor (Gerard Butler). While we're at it, I think Patrick Wilson should have gotten an award as Best Supporting Actor. POTO was robbed.
  12. Okay, so I've been listening to the Phantom of the Opera soundtrack for the 2004 movie again, and I have to play the songs over and over again because I just love how Gerry sings the score. Some of my favorite words of his are "fire" from "What raging fire shall flood the soul" from PONR, "welcome" from "I bid you welcome" from Down Once More, "me" and "strange" from "Sing once again with me our strange duet" from POTO (Gerry really turns "me" into a sexy word), and all the "before(s)" from "Music of the Night." What are some of your favorite words?
  13. Reading your posts brings a smile to my face, thanks. I might watch the movie this weekend, but I have noticed that I notice more things in the actual singing when I'm listening to the soundtrack and not watching the DVD. I guess the movie distracts me too much, lol. But it has been a few weeks since I last watched the movie, so I just might have to watch it again soon. Along with hearing Gerry sing, I also love to look at his emotional, piercing eyes and admire the deep emotions on his face. Oh, yeah, he has nice long slender legs to look at as well. And he looks so skinny in his Red Death outfit; I noticed that the last time I watched the movie. Okay, I'm obsessed over his singing, so now it's time to become obsessed over other things concerning him, lol. Is it possible to fall in love with a voice? The answer: a deep, resounding "Yes, Yes, Yes!" Those eyes of his are also to fall in love with.
  14. Okay, I now know that I've been listening to my POTO soundtrack too much. I'm now starting to notice when Gerry rolls the words he is singing, and it's not just the r's he's rolling. For example, in POTO, he rolls "behind" in "And though you turn from me to glance behind." Also, in PONR, he rolls "descend" in "Let the dream descend." He also does some rolling in Music of the Night, such as on some of his "nights" and on the "fight" in "In this darkness that you cannot fight." I hope I'm not imagining him rolling some of those words because my head starts to roll when I hear some of his rolling. I really have to give Gerry credit on how far he managed to come in his singing ability, really an amazing feat considering he wasn't trained for this type of singing until he found out JS was interested in having him as the Phantom. I really wish Gerry will do another singing role sometime in the future; I loved how he sang in POTO, and I would love to see his voice develop even more. I know Gerry's main passion is acting, but it would please me to have new singing material from Gerry to listen to. If I keep on listening to POTO, I don't know what else I'm going to start noticing besides him being extremely emotional in his singing and his rolling of some of the words he sings. Good work in POTO, Gerry, I hope you are proud of your performance in that movie because you should be, especially for not being stage trained. Gerry really brought the words to life with his passion and his intensity.
  15. I haven't liked some of the rumors that I have heard about this sequel, but I am willing to give it a chance. It would be cool if Gerry could do it on stage, but he doesn't have the strength of voice for it. Also, I wouldn't be able to see him on stage anyways, even though I agree with the person who said that it would be nice to see Gerry perform "Music of the Night" live. Now that would be nice beyond words, and I would be more than happy to volunteer as his Christine. If this sequel turns out to be any good, I would love to see Gerry in the film version of it, along with Emmy and Patrick also reprising their roles as Christine and Raoul. I agree that Gerry owes a lot of his success to his role in Phantom, which is no doubt the role which brought the most fan attention to him; I know that it was Phantom that got me interested in Gerry. I have seen several of his other movies, but none of them has touched me as much as Phantom has. I would also love to hear Gerry sing again. I have listened to the Phantom of the Opera soundtrack so many times I honestly need new material to listen to, especially if I get to hear Gerry's voice in that new material.
