 Illustration from Kay novel. He certainly looks depressed.
Illustration from Kay novel. He certainly looks depressed.
This Статья shall pertain to the 'holy trinity' of Phantom. The Leroux, Kay, and Andrew Lloyd Webber versions. The basic idea is to look at each individual portrayal of the Phantom and ascertain approximately the extent of his mental deterioration and psychosis. I will also discuss the probable causes and catalysts for these behaviours.
This is by no means a full psychoanalysis, and in the long run is only meant to calm me down with some logical thinking after a very bad week. I.E. Ты don't have to like it или agree with it.
I shall begin with Leroux since that is the original perception of...

 Erik and Christine.
Erik and Christine.
Hi guys, I'm going to compare the original novel and the stage musical that popularise the former.

The Novel

When I first read the book, I was taken aback about how the story was different from the musical. It starts with Joseph Buquet's mysterious death, which was officially ruled as a suicide.
Raoul was a very unlikable character in the novel unlike the musical counterpart, he is always angry with Christine and his relationship with Philippe, his elder brother was really explosive due to disapproval over his relationship with Christine.
Erik still remains the same and in the novel, he's also...

There are various interpretations of why the old Raoul brings the monkey Музыка box to her grave and some even think that all the old Raoul parts of the movie are completely useless. However, I'm one of those who believe that while the film would've worked perfectly well even without Raoul travelling anywhere with the Музыка box, all the old Raoul clips are perhaps the most essential aspect of the entire film's basic point. I think they are the ultimate aspect that drastically differs the film from the stage play.

A monkey symbolizes many things that are strongly related to the story. Essential...

All right.

So Tumblr has been crazy with this in the last few weeks since Sierra Boggess has left the Broadway production of The Phantom of the Opera on September 6th. A rather short run, so to say: she did start only on May 14th…

I wasn’t going to write anything about this at first. But now, rumor has it Sierra Boggess has stated that her 2014 run in Broadway was going to be the last time she would play Christine.

Cough cough.

Ha.

Of course.

Bullshit. Bullshit bullshit bullshit bullshit bullshit. BULLSHIT.

Everyone knows Sierra is Cameron Mackintosh’s and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s darling....

вверх 10 reasons for why Erik/Christine doesn’t work.

Yes, I know I was supposed to Опубликовать my Любовь Never Dies rant before, but… this is really to help me write it.

So, short story. Before coming on Fanfiction, I already knew that almost everyone on Earth were E/C shippers. But I was still shocked of seeing the ridiculous number of E/C authors, especially that there are very good ones among them. Now, I’m not being rude, it’s okay to like the E/C pairing (I guess…), but I’m just being really honest. I remember, when I entered the phandom, I was a mild R/C shipper (You know, “I prefer...

the phantom has Raoul against the gate, it's christen's decision. she doesn't answer soon enough, and the phantom eliminates the other choice. oddly, christen is drawn to the phantom, hypnotized by his mind games. Ты see, he didn't kill raoul, he just made him dissapear. christen finally decides, wherever raoul may be, she didn't care at all. she decided that she loved the phantom. together, they made many operas, reopened the opera house, and they grew old and died together. but, it is сказал(-а) that if Ты listen carefully at the now closed down house, Ты can still hear the duet of christen and the phantom, for their work was never finished, now they wait for it to be done.
Christine kisses Erik, who pretended to fulfill a promise, but told a devastating lie. She agrees to marry him in the book, giving up HER dreams. her COMPASSION is her STENTGH. The book was about a women's right to marry who she chooses.
"The Phantom of the Opera" is feminst Raoul follows her to her Father's grave for no reason when he says the Энджел of Музыка isn't real he is being overprotective When Christine knows the truth he is someone to go to for support. He can't save himself from Erik's torture chamber! The Persain was the first Arab character I saw post 9/11. He was heroic, intelligent,...

Paris, 1890, nine years after the events of 'The Phantom of the Opera'. Nine years in which all thoughts of Erik, the Энджел who'd once haunted her день and night had been cast aside, discarded like a broken doll. Nine years in which poor, sixteen год old Christine had grown up, grown up into a women of high reputation, with a handsome young husband and prospects of a child.

So much can change in nine years.

Yet it only takes a little to be hurled back into the past.

Chapter One :

Paris is host to a number of fine hospitals, all which produce many a fine baby from many a fine mother. It is a particular...

Well firstly, I'd like to say that I watched the Australian Cast Recording (not being lucky enough to see it in life) and the staging/costumes/set were superb! Really, in some scenes I felt as if I were looking at a real bar/circus/etc that one might go into on a weekend quite casually.
The Пение was equally wonderful from most parties - I particularly enjoyed Ben Lewis as the Phantom, the Актёрское искусство mostly on the same level. However, I much prefer the songs of the original Phantom of the Opera.
And now for the plot. Christine, now married to the suddenly горький Raoul, and with a musically talented...

Christine and Erik, open up your mind!
Hi guys, since I had only done the stage review, here is the movie review that I will write.

The Story

While the story is exactly like the stage version, some songs were revise for logical reasons. A couple of them were shortened to avoid repetition, the ending with the elderly Raoul was added that is not feature in the stage version.

Music of the Night

As mentioned, many familiar songs are feature and are shortened. Originally, the Phantom (Erik in the original novel) has a new song which was written specially for this film. But it was omitted due to time constrain, it is feature on the Special Edition DVD.

The Characters

While watching this film, I keep thinking that this film is like Disney's Beauty and the Beast, with the exception of the ending which both the antagonist and protagonist did not die.

In All Your Fantasies

So, these are my thoughts on the film and enjoy it.
 Stranger Than Ты Dream It.

Tracking Down Different Versions: We had our awesome A/V Club, but that got closed because no one was on it. So…you pretty much brought it on yourself. Anyway, believe it или not, the 1925, 1962, and 1990 Фильмы are available on YouTube: link, link, and link. Also Leroux is online; I already Опубликовано the link. Look, that’s 4 versions online for FREE! Also, some of the еще common versions aren’t that hard to track down if Ты know where to look. I got the 1943 version for $2.99 at Fleet Farm. And those things called...

The Haunted Mansion ride at Дисней has always been one of my favourite things, and Phantom tops the Список at #1 fave thing. And a while back I started noticing really heavy similarities between the two things and I found many of them interesting. I thought I would share these observations here, so that others might enjoy the coincidences, или homages if you'd care to take it that way.

We will begin in the Foyer. Above the fireplace hangs a portrait where a young gentleman (presumably Master Gracey) hangs. It is here that the unseen guide for the attraction first makes his presence known.

I originally Опубликовано this on IMDB's board as VampireOutlaw.

No one wanted a sequel, <-- (generally speaking), it was still made, the critiques hate it, the Фаны hate it, it keeps on having to close down...Yet it's still here?
I know it has its share of fans, but nonetheless the crucially and strongly negative reception seems to be the situation in general.

So why the bloody hell does ALW not give up? или if he can't bring himself to, why does he keep on trying with only minor changes?

~ First a sidenote:
Love Never Dies is not a sequel to the 2004 movie because that movie is Joel Schumacher's interpretation...

What Annoys Me About The Phantom of Manhattan by Frederick Forsyth

All of the Leroux-bashing:

In the Preface, Forsyth repeatedly points out errors in Leroux’s novel, most of which are trivial and pointless (OMG! He сказал(-а) the chandelier was heavier than it really was! Shun Leroux!). And he keeps pointing out how Andrew Lloyd Webber “fixed” the errors, which brings me to…


Treating Andrew Lloyd Webber’s version like its perfect and the only “right” one:

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s stage Показать isn’t perfect. That being said, some parts of it were better in his version than in Leroux’s,...

Praying to Leroux:
whenever Ты pray use this prayer:

Our Phantom who art in Paris
Erik be thy name
Thy Opera come, Don Juan be done
With Christine as star, as it should be
Give us this день our daily aria
And forgive us our punjabbing, as we have punjabbed in your name
And lead us not toward The Phantom Reviewer but deliver us from ______
For thine is Box 5, the mask, and candle, forever and ever...

I saw The Phantom of the Opera when I was 12, and I heard the Original Лондон Cast Recording of Любовь Never Dies when I was 16. By then my life had gone through some MAJOR changes. For one thing my Dad died 2.75 months after I saw The Phantom of the Opera on stage (believe it или not) and my life was continuing to get worse, so my personality like the characters in "Love Never Dies" changed with life. What I'm trying to say is "Misery loves company" especially from close friends. When I was 13 I had read "The Phantom of Manhattan" so it was not a surprise to me when Christine died. :(!

While I was looking for a Movie Maker for my older Mac, so I could download the David Staller version on to Youtube, so I could get it to fellow phans, I spotted this downloadable program called ImTOO YouTube to iTunes Converter, which I soon discovered had a thee минута track UNLESS Ты pay $14.95 for it.

Phantom:
Night-time sharpens,
heightens each sensation
Darkness stirs and wakes imagination
Silently the senses abandon their defences ...

Slowly, gently night unfurls its splendour
Grasp it, sense it - tremulous and tender
Turn your face away
from the garish light of day,
turn your thoughts away
from cold, unfeeling light -
and listen to the Музыка of the night ...

Close your eyes and surrender to your
darkest dreams!
Purge your thoughts of the life
Ты knew before!
Close your eyes,
let your spirit start to soar!
And you'll live
as you've never lived before ...

Softly, deftly,
Музыка shall surround...

My Brutally Honest and Possibly Offensive Review of the 2004 Movie

    I’m sitting Главная sick from school with absolutely nothing better to do than write my (well, just read the title) review of the 2004 movie The Phantom of the Opera. Gerry phans and Patrick Wilson phans…I’d consider not Чтение this. So, here I am: putting Phantom in my DVD player and beginning to write down my Болталка thoughts and reactions about it. Ты can be assured that it will be disorganized, random, completely honest, offensive, and a little inappropriate (just like me).
