Phantom of the Opera

Why oh why was this made into a movie and why do so many people here want to see it? I somehow got dragged into Phantom with a Taiwanese friend. Dull, dull, dull. And the music is just terrible. Now I can’t get those awful songs out of my head.

One reviewer put it this way:

If I had to say anything postive about the experience of seeing this movie, it would be that I finally learned how to play all the games on my cell phone. :s

Erhu – Ouch! I think you’ve just lost your chance to be quoted on the back of the DVD box when it comes out. :slight_smile:

Was it just the movie version you didn’t like? Have you seen a live performance and felt the same way?

Ha! The evil worked :slight_smile:

It was made into a movie because it’s made gazillions of dollars for Lloyd-Webber and will no doubt go on to make many more. I’m a musical buff so I had to go see POTO just to pick it apart in excruciating detail afterwards. It’s like Lord of the Rings for fantasy buffs - love it, hate it, but you have to see it.
