...Rebuttal. Personal Opinions Differ. (:
Actually, I thought Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper was surprisingly good. Usually I'd kick up a big fuss before watching Barbie, of all things, in anything at all. But as an avid fan of musicals and music in general, I felt compelled to watch it after one advertisement as I thought the music was indeed refreshingly catchy. The plot line was pretty sweet and... I just enjoyed it tremendously... even though I have to agree that the commercials were irritating. I particularly like the song "I Am A Girl Like You" and would seriously recommend fans of musicals and/or music in general to watch it as a form of relaxing distraction.
PS. I'd also like to comment on cyclone259's comments about adults finding Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper to their tastes. Everyone has his/her own opinions and you would do well not to judge them based on them. In fact, it's actually quite insulting.
The Phantom of the Opera (2004)
Good for the discovering of the famed musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber in the comfort of a cinema.
Reading the above comment from emma_crawfordgreene, I am now in a state of shock as to how anyone could find the Phantom of the Opera, the movie, bad. Unfortunately I haven't the chance to watch the original musical, but I've always been an avid fan of musicals and especially the songs of the Phantom of the Opera. I admire Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman's awesome stage coupling and even though I do not know much of the topic of musical casting, I must admit that Gerard Butler's voice isn't good nor suited for a musical... especially as the role of the Phantom. A musical genius. But actually I thought his acting was quite very good and I do think he looks sexy as the Phantom. ^^" Maybe Ewan Mcgregor would have done a better job. His voice is just mind-blowing (in Moulin Rouge) Anyway. I though Emmy Rossum was quite... charming as Christine and yes, I do agree that Patrick Wilson did an awesome job as Raoul (I like his hair!). I thought the costumes and make-up and set and music and practically everything was very well done though... but like I said, I am no expert regarding such topics so... pardon my... inexperience. So... it is not as good as the stage version, as emma_crawfordgreene happened to emphasize... but I think it's still worth a watch. I mean, relax man, it's just a movie... it is good for people who haven't had a chance to and would like to come to know the legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber musical of the Phantom of the Opera, in the comfort of a cinema (save money, better view) ...and I'm sure Andrew Lloyd Webber has his reasons for such a production. Pardon my "insolence", but my rating for this movie would be a 4 out of 5 and my verdict, the movie version of the Phantom of the Opera is awe-aspiring and simply brilliant. A definite must-watch. Just do it with a considerably less critical attitude and it would be an enjoyable experience.
