A new version of Phantom of the Opera opens in theaters today. It is essentially the stage musical on the big screen. I have never seen it on stage, though I have always wanted too. It got a decent review on All Things Considered yesterday. I must admit, though, that the main reason I want to see this movie has nothing to do with intellect. It has everything to do with Gerard Butler who plays the phantom. Yum. I even watched Timeline TWICE to look at him. If Gerard Butler and David Boreanaz were in a room and I was forced to choose only one, my head would explode first.
