I saw The Phantom of the Opera this weekend. Hmmm… It had great singing and an interesting plot; but if you think of it, it was really semi-mediocre. The genius villain wanna-be hero The Phantom very un-ingeniously messes up his chances with Christine when he goes about yelling at her. The owners of the opera house aren’t the brightest bulbs either. I could say one or two things about how gullible Christine is, but I will not. No, the real pain-in-the-neck comes when you look at their costuming. Why do the main characters/performers have to go about in immodest stuff? It disgusts me. Fun facts about the Phantom’s disfigurement: firstly, it is not all that bad; secondly, the masks he wears to hide it cover different areas. He wears a mask that covers from his nose upward, but later one that covers from his eyes downward. Then, when the mask is removed, suddenly the entire right side of his face is messed up, his previously perfectly smoothed out hair does an Albert Einstein imitation, and those present gasp in horror. Whhhhaaattt?
Later we saw The Return of the King again. Ahhhhhhgggg; they messed up the part about Faramir! (in the last movie) (only slightly in this one) Faramir is one of my favorite minor characters. (his simularity in the book to Robin Hood has a whole lot to do with it)
About me? Whaaa! I miss my brother! But yeah, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, the grass is green……and I have a math test. So long!
