I don't know about most people but I liked the way they turned Phantom of the Opera into a movie and now I hope they do as good a job on this one. I have seen this on stage and it's a very moving production. I've also seen the story as a regular movie and I've like it also. There really isn't much about it that I haven't liked.

The cast so far is pretty darn good and so I think they will have a really good movie.
