I'm not a Princess Diaries fan, but I do like Ella Enchanted because it did give Anne Hathaway to sing. I had an opportunity to watch it not long ago.

I've always liked Somebody to Love, it's one...

All I'm saying that the backdrop falling, Carlotta's exit, and Christine's debut were coincidental and not planned. I don't think the Phantom planned for Christine to debut during the gala. The way I...

During the Masquerade scene, the Phantom tells Christine that she needs to "return to her teacher" that "she has much still to learn".

This leads me to believe that the backdrop fall and...

Obnoxious details in television shows

This has been bugging me for sometime now, so thought I would throw it out for discussion. This isn't anything new, some television show details have been outright obnoxious for years. But we're in a...

RIP Leonard Nimoy

I just heard Mr. Nimoy passed away. I will miss him. Star Trek will never be the same.

I don't consider him much of a gentleman. On the other hand, I don't consider the movie version of Christine much of a lady either.

I've heard No One Would Listen and really did not care for it. I think a song has to relevant to the story in order to be memorable. To me, it was not relevant to the story or memorable.

The Torture Chamber

I was thinking about this the other day and having a torture chamber within his house really reveals a very disturbing side to Erik. Thoughts?

Absolutely correct, but in the case of the Phantom movie, we have ALW to thank for stating differently. He said that he wanted everyone to see the movie who wasn't able to afford to see the stage...

Lotte, I think we should probably end this discussion here anyway. I don't want to offend or upset anyone. I just tend to look at the movie differently. Besides that, I really took this off topic....

In the movie, she comes to the opera house when she is seven. She is never seen being taught to sing by the Phantom as a child and she is never shown speaking to him as a child.
