Everything Wrong With The Phantom of the Opera in 17 Minutes or Less


336tn visningar59

    The Phantom of the Opera is certainly a movie. And there is "singing" at times. The plot is pretty darn confusing. I guess people love the original stage show and music so much they don't care. But we care! We count sins, dammit!
    Next week: '90s comedy sins & recent action-ish sins.
    Remember, no movie is without sin. Which movie's sins should we count next?

    1. Angelena Pulis

      So what you’re saying is… it should be called Candles of the Opera.

    2. Colin Bell

      Maybe its just me, but I actually really like this movie

    3. Jrpg Golf

      There actually are operas with English librettos (in English for the uncultured swine).

    4. the terrarian Fryxell

      Ngl the irl play was better

    5. Taner Archibald

      Here’s the thing with musicals written for the stage, they work better on the stage. Because that’s how they were meant to be seen

    6. Christina Rundle

      This has been my favorite Phantom cast. Emmy my favorite Christine. Better than Sarah B. Sorry not Sorry. And Minne Driver was 🔥

    7. Sean A

      Everything wrong with the Phantom of the Opera film = Gerard Butler. Period! Horrendous casting choice.

    8. skunkie110

      I’m surprised a point wasn’t given for the candles coming out of the water and lighting themselves when they enter the Phantom’s secret lair 😆🤷🏻‍♀️

    9. Sam

      this is what really got me into phantom so I don't hate the movie. it's not the stage show nor will it ever live up to it but i thought the movie was pretty good :)

    10. silvertonguer

      This movie is awful. Sure it is but Love Never Dies is even fucking worse. Thank god they never made that shit into a movie.

    11. loveanddreambig

      There actually ARE operas written in English...

    12. Medicated Jay


    13. Goldenponyboy Crossback

      My sister said the mask stays on because there's a hook in the nose that goes up the nostril

    14. Princess yonnie

      Lon Chaney version of The Phantom of the Opera is not scary to me I don't know how people get scared of him he's like the least scariest character lol well to me he just want to be loved maybe if you go look at the movie you see he's not that bad at all😃

    15. Tilly Dee

      I give you all credit for recognizing the serious musical sins that exist in this movie... 🤣

    16. Dude Really?

      well actually people did used to laugh at disfigured children getting beat the shit out of. It was supposed to "remove the demon" that caused their disfigurement.

    17. Wendy Lou Who

      My husband said the only good thing about this movie is it didn't cost $100 bucks a seat. And Gerald Butler as Phantom? The only other role more miscast was Russell Crowe as Javert

      1. Statalyzer

        Gerard Butler was far better at singing than Crowe, but then again Crowe wasn't playing a role where his voice is supposed to make people think he's the Angle of Music sent from heaven to be a vocal coach either.

    18. Violet Patina

      And no one mentions the dude that yeets himself under a woman's skirts in the Masquerade scene. My middle school bandmates were always turned into howling idiots from the half-a-second long clip. If I remember correctly, the guy also had dwarfism so he was at the perfect height to do... uh... *stuff.*

    19. Celeste Burt

      For what it's worth, him having a horse is a bit strange and doesn't make much sense, but it's mentioned in the book the musical is based off La Fantôme de L'Opéra 🤷‍♀️

    20. Brutal NecroBro

      Loved this movie nevertheless

    21. are you dumb

      What's weird is that in the actual book the phantom first kept Christine for a fortnight but in the movie they speed things up for no reason other than this movie is already 2 hours fricking long...

    22. Noémie Claire

      4:16 So you are telling me... that they had Ramin Karimloo in the movie... AND STILL WENT WITH GERARD GODDAMN BUTLER TO PLAY THE PHANTOM???? RAMIN WAS R I G H T T H E R R

    23. Sovietbat91

      I'm surprised you didn't bring up the issue with movie's setting. Real life 1870-1871 Paris was being sieged by the Germans during the Franco-Prussian War, and the Paris Commune occurred too, so lots of violence and destruction...and yet this isn't shown or referenced in the movie. Not sure if the writers didn't do their research or I just missed the clues, but it always bugged me.

    24. Chris Carmichael

      I cant believe Joel didnt ruin the story. Andrew was watching him closely

    25. Jonathan Braxton

      it's great music!!!! hurrr durrr i dislike an extremely popular musical im so interesting and eclcetic be amazed! - "CinemaSins"

    26. Lizzie Lo.

      7:16 Haha, evil... true :/

    27. abbie

      in the musical, the phantom is mysterious and unknown, but it's funny because in the novel he sits at a dinner table full of staff/patrons and makes everyone wildly uncomfortable.

      1. Li-Li Mandragon

        That’s why he’s scarier in the novel in my opinion, he alternates between being a quote a terrifying shadow that follows behind Christine and a man child who flips and loves attention

    28. Luna Plateada

      "The Phantom Of The Opera"...I love you!!!!!

    29. Luna Plateada

      !!!Fabuloso Film!!!

    30. alex thelizardking

      This is my favorite interpretation of Christine's relationship with the phantom. She loves him and owes him everything but she also just wants to be free.

    31. masarusenpai

      Everything wrong with Jesus Christ Superstar when?

    32. Milie

      The 20 000 francs left for the phantom are « anciens francs » (old francs), these francs were converted in «nouveaux francs » (new francs) in 1958. 10 anciens francs = 1nouveau franc By today’s standards the 20 000 francs left for the phantom would be closer to 80 000$. A substantial amount of money but far from 900 000$

    33. regalshot.24

      Ohhh I get it, he's batman.

    34. Wangxian gives me lyphe

      awwwwww-eeeewwwww ekkekeke😂

    35. Byrdie W

      On the topic of the existence of English-language operas: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opera_in_English

    36. ThatGreenDayFreak

      They wasted a perfectly good Ramin Karimloo. HE WAS RIGHT THERE. He is one of the god tier actors who has played the phantom and they wasted him. Too bad Ramin was playing Raoul around this time.

    37. Edison Maylig

      H I S B A T M A N

    38. George Oldsterd

      Christine's blonde friend shows up in the Phantom's hideout, all action-girl, sword in hand, and... Nothing happens. Her action-girl schtick is wasted, is what I'm saying. *DING!*

    39. William Steinhour

      I don't think I've laughed that hard since before covid! Awesome work!!!!

    40. the ford

      The best part is when Love Never Dies is completely forgotten.

    41. I, Piano Guy


    42. Priscilla Jimenez

      The phantom killed the dude because he saw who was ans what he looked like.

    43. Priscilla Jimenez

      Wasn't it implied that the phantom's voice was enchanting, hence why Christine and even others seemed to be under his spell?

    44. Priscilla Jimenez

      Why is he shocked they were partying? In the song they say the phantom had disappeared for months.

    45. Priscilla Jimenez

      Not only did Christine appear with eye shadow but she passed out with stockings on and then woke up with them off.

    46. Priscilla Jimenez

      Why does he get on them for singing...it's a musical!

    47. Vali Bunneh

      My friend and I played a drinking game once where we took a shot every time someone said "christine" ," the phantom of the opera" , or "raoul"; we didn't even make it halfway through the movie 😅

    48. Laura Tude

      "Aaaaaaaawwww eeeeeewwww" hilarious

    49. kathrynm37

      Is it just me or does the woman wearing a boat in her hair look kind of like January Jones? 10:00

    50. Christiana Crispen

      Watch the other one he stitches his face in the beginning

    51. Zachary Arcand

      17:18 Hey Joker! You won't believe who's joining Smash Bros! Another Phantom!

    52. Amarie

      I never thought this all took place in like 3 days lmao I dont think the first opera and the one where Carlotta returns are meant to be one day apart.

    53. Ślepa Gienia

      10:41 It wasn't 24 hours - it took a few weeks or months

    54. Aidan Phillips

      Actually it's reasonably common for repertory houses like the Paris Opera to stage different operas almost every day of the week. Usually though its due to stage crew working tirelessly through the night to strike down and store sets - and the lake underneath the opera house was historically used for barges to come through from the River Seine and take the previous evenings set into storage elsewhere in the city (probably near the docks).

    55. phanfinger

      Let's just be honest here, Gerard's voice is not remotely good in this movie.

      1. Li-Li Mandragon

        He still does a passable job, should’ve made him actually scary looking though.

    56. D Desmedt

      God I lasted 1 minute and 10 seconds... dreadful voice over and clip!

    57. Handmaiden to Death

      Thank you, thank you, thank you for doing Phantom of the Opera! I love the movie, but there's a lot wrong.

    58. Leslie Ann Salmon

      Can you guys do a Niel Brien movie? I would absolutely watch the heck out of that....

    59. NicolaiAAA

      lmao calling Gerard Butler Geostorm got me good

    60. Sidney Rose

      One of most popular musicals of all time is about a woman being stalked and lewed by two jealousy possessive men . . . *y i k e s*

    61. Tornado Girl

      19:11 Any time there is a sword fighting scene in a movie they always use the audio from The Princess Bride.🤣🤣🤣

    62. Cooper Creations

      Biggest sin of phantom is that Daroga is not in it. How the heck can you not have the best character in the book in the musical? Can we agree to boot someone out like Madame Giry and write Daroga in!!!??? Also I would love to see him do love never dies. (Laughs in evil)

    63. Sunflower

      The horse actually exits in the book, I remember that very clearly. There is even an explanation why its there. So sadly, she wasn't riding the Phantom

      1. Li-Li Mandragon

        Of all the things to carry over from the book, the horse was least necessary. Giving Christine back her spine and brains on other hand.

    64. Aaron Fangheart

      I grew up with The Phantom of the Opera it's a wonderful movie and a great book also. It's beautiful and I think it's underrated

      1. Aaron Fangheart

        Oh no your right the movie doesn't follow the book at all but then again they can't keep everything from the book you know. I still loved it

      2. Li-Li Mandragon

        I love the book, the musical overshadows it too much which is a shame since it’s a horror classic.

    65. Aileen Schneider

      Being able to perform a totally different show every night is kind of the system every big German opera house for example maintains. It's called repertoire system. You have all the costumes, stage pieces etc. stashed away and when you need it, it can be build in 8 hours or so. The singers and the dancers have several roles and routines (which were at that time often the same for different operas) memorized and ready for when they are requested. I think, even some of the set pieces were often reused and therefore it was and is totally possible to have different shows for every day of the week.

      1. Statalyzer

        Sure, but 3 plays in 3 days when two of them *were not memorized and planned beforehand* ?

    66. Amara Woolery

      The 25th Anniversary live version of this musical is infinitely better than the movie and i will die on this hill

      1. Cooper Creations

        And I will die on that hill with you as well! Long live the 25th anniversary!

    67. John Sheehan

    68. Amara Woolery

      When you came in with "male nipples pasties" I almost spit out my tea

    69. killjoyskeepmakingnoise

      There needed to be another sin added because the Phantom's Masquerade costume is so much cooler in the musical and should have been in the movie

      1. Li-Li Mandragon

        What you didn’t like red gay pirate outfit?

    70. Deja Noel

      I've always wondered why she suddenly had a Smokey eye in the beginning T~T

    71. Lissandale

      The real irony is he isn't even ugly with the mask removed. A little bit of scarring can't make Gerard Butler ugly.

      1. Li-Li Mandragon

        It’s so fucking dumb, it’s like Zuko in The Last Airbender

    72. FutureBerea Alumn

      Don Juan rehearsals begin after the cemetery scene in the stage production. The actual performance is most certainly NOT the next day.

    73. FutureBerea Alumn

      “He killed a dude just a few weeks ago.” Bouquet has been dead for about 6 months.

    74. Nicolas Kiergras

      YEEAAAAASS JUST GOT THIS IN THE RECOMENDATIONS RIP THIS APART! but I do love this... But also am loathe to know that we could've had Huge jackman and Ann Hathaway as our leads... *Cries in what should have been*

      1. Li-Li Mandragon

        It should get a proper animated adaptation.

    78. Eren Stormborn Atreides

      These are starting to get less and less views right? It's- like the novelty's worn off. It's too random and arbitrary. He needs to do like a Key so that people can keep up and anticipate the Sins he's gonna hand out. There are a few mainstays. Everybody knows the logos are gonna be one. Everybody knows what's gonna get a "That's racist". He's gotta codify the shit

    79. Eleanor Shakespeare

      The boat in the woman's hair was actually the fashion during the time period of the opera setting. During the reigns of Louis XV and Louis XVI having big wigs with different decorations was the thing, such as boats, fruit, nests, birds, other animals etc.

    80. Cyndra Kent

      I hope this is satire.

    81. Ew I can’t even

      I thought 'wow, 118 sins is a lot less than I thought!'... and then the bonus candle round happened.

    82. Serasia

      Of course the horse in that underground sequence was just a dream, and Christine really was riding Erik. There were no horses after the Horse Plague. Just ask Baldrick from Blackadder. He had to stand-in as a mount when Blackadder became a highwayman.

      1. Statalyzer

        Riding Erik, or "riding" Erik?

    83. ghosttclubb

      LMAOO the ending harry potter scene got me

    84. Jade O'Malley

      You guys need to watch the BBC version that’s not a musical. It has Charles Dance as the phantom.

      1. Li-Li Mandragon

        Accurate looking Christine, good mask, Charles is awesome. It’s a solid show, wish we got accurate film adaptation of the book

    85. Sa Mos

      Can't unsee young Ramin Karimloo as Harry Styles. THANKS A LOT!

    86. Gabrielle Park

      actually there are quite a few operas in english. however i dont believe so at that time period

    87. sorry, i have rehearsal


    88. Jer Lewis

      This is the standard for why a play should not be made into a film.

    89. Valerie vB

      I really like this musical/ movie yet I almost died laughing a couple times and had to rewind XD

    90. broken foxx

      Raoul is one of the worst characters. I don't know if I hate him or Marius more. Really, like we need some decent romantic leads in musicals. Doesn't help that Patrick Wilson is like if beige were a person

      1. broken foxx

        @Li-Li Mandragon I have read Phantom but it's been sooo long since I did, I don't remember very much of it. Les Mis I read some of but ended up giving up on it. I should try and go back to it tho. Raoul just always came off as a complete idiot. Marius... well, he and Cosette can have each other. All the good characters in Les Mis die!

      2. Li-Li Mandragon

        I prefer Musical Marius to book Marius (he fucking stalks Cosette for hundreds pages). Book Raoul is a much better character than Musical/film Raoul.

    91. Jacob Dean

      I’ve always loved this movie. Does it compare to the Michael Crawford and Sarah brightman version? Not so much. But Emmy rossum plays a wonderful and charming Christine, and Gerard butler should be credited for a pretty decent vocal performance with no history in musical theater. Also, you can’t tell me that the movie doesn’t look pristine. It’s beautifully designed by the people who designed the original stage play. It would have done much better if released to today’s audience. The hair styles, the fashion, it’s all much more suited to a gen z/ millennial audience.

    92. Dana Mackaaij

      I prefer the 25th anniversary cd over this anytime though i have to admit i liked the movie scenery a lot. From both, a lot of the plot is not explained and changed MASSIVE from the book and at some aspects don't even make sense at all

    93. Sophie Hagedorn

      I am SO here for the Raoul slander. He sucks.

      1. Li-Li Mandragon

        In the musical and film, in the book *he’s my favourite character.* Raoul is so underrated, in novel it’s mostly from his POV and his relationship with Christine is genuinely fleshed out.

    94. tik tak

      *And honestly this plot can go f*ck itself* ... 😂😂😂 ROFL

    95. Ubi Aron

      NO criticising the beautiful, timeless and goosebump-inducing first few seconds of the Phantom of the Opera's song and motif. ITS BEAUTIFUL, TIMELESS AND -

    96. Dee Elle Bee

      my biggest issue with the 2004 Phantom, is that they moved it to a time when the story COULD NOT have taken place. in 1870, France was in the middle of the Franco-Prussian War, and the opera house, which was called the Palais Garnier, not the Opera Populaire, wasn't even finished or opened yet. It was, in fact, used for a field hospital/base both for the French in the war, and by the rebels in the revolution right after. one thing i find both hilarious and mildly embarrassing for the film industry; in 1925, Lon Cheney used tape, cotton balls, and piano wire to make his face look more funkily skeletal. and even to date, almost 100 years later, it's still the closest deformity to the original book

    97. Mira Lang

      Christine and Raoul are the most useless protagonists I've ever seen.

      1. Li-Li Mandragon

        The musical and this did em dirty, they’re much better in the book. Christine has a brain and so does Raoul.

    98. Alex Stanek

      I feel like there should've been a sin round for all the "There are too many props in these scenes" and "This shot goes on for way too long"

    99. Noice Froog

      dont get me wrong this video I love and its right in time for my reoccurring phantom boner. But he killed the "stagehand" because he was spreading bad rumors in that previous scene and ms giry even forshadows that he should watch his tongue and trys to intimidate that behavior out of him so surely she would know that that behavior wouldnt be passable. Also Its kinda genius that he makes 2 points at once "disaster beyond imagination" for not listening and dont talk shit about the phantom hes sensitive.

      1. Noice Froog

        Yikes im annoying

      2. Noice Froog

        and as a general rule the keep your hand at the level of your eye was a good rule of thumb sure doesnt help with the water trap w/e the fuck that was but he dropped his hand with the gate jump scare and dropped his hand got choked........and no you can never have enough candles.

      3. Noice Froog

        13:00 and no act 2 makes every production, final lair and point of no return are also fucking bangers with loads of nuance that the cast get to really shine their acting skills on, in my opinion the most satisfying of the show

    100. Finnian

      Lmao when you give sins for French architecture like fr I'm confused
