Phantom: No. No, no, no, no, and OH GOD FUCK HELL NOOOOOOOOOOO. Too pretty, and his singing made me want to cry. I mean, nobody is Michael Crawford except Michael Crawford, but JESUS.
Hence, that's why when his wig and mask came off, that all dissappeared.
Christine: Good overall. There were some moments where the scooping she kept doing made me want to hurt her badly, but the end of the title song was awesome.
What annoyed me about her is how she switched her eyes so often, it was really noticable... it got annoying. But, you got to say, 'Christine' and 'Raoul' had great chemistry on stage.
Opening sequence: Oh HELL FUCKING YES. EXACTLY how it should be. Beautiful. Damn near brought tears to my eyes.
I loved that so much, too, especially the hidden symbols, like lot 666. When they unveiled that chandelier, I seriouly had a huge chill down my spine. Was a great opening indeed.
Carlotta: Ugh, what the FUCK? Why hire Minnie Driver when she can't even sing the part? Why not get yet another Hollywood unknown who can sing? Oh, and they went TOO comic-relief with her. Carlotta has more dignity than that, goddamn it, even if she IS a bitch. XP
Masquerade: What... The... Hell. Hi, we're singing about all the colours that we AREN'T WEARING. Who the hell's idea was that?
Maquerade! Paper faces on parade
Masquerade! Hide your face so the world will never find you
Masquerade! Every face a different shade
Masquerade! Look around, there's another mask behind you.
Flash of mauve
Splash of puce
Fool and king
Ghoul and goose
Green and black
Queen and priest
Trace of rouge
Face of beast
Take your turn, take a ride
On the merry-go-round
in an inhuman race
Eye of gold
Thigh of blue
True is false
Who is who?
Curl of lip
Swirl of gown
Ace of hearts
Face of clown
Faces! Drink it in, drink it up
Till you've drowned
In the light
In the sound
But who can name the face?
Masquerade! Grinning yellows, spinning reds
Masquerade! Take your fill, let the spectacle astound you
Masquerade! Burning glances, turning heads
Masquerade! Stop and stare at the sea of smiles around you
Masquerade! Seething shadows breathing lies
Masquerade! You can fool any friend who ever knew you
Masquerade! Leering satyrs, peering eyes
Masquerade! Run and hide, but a face will still pursue you.
Couldn't agree more. Looked like all of them were black and white or red
