Female lead wasn't bad, the male, ugh.

Well, the original publication was in 1909, and was billed as a true story. Since the book itself begins after Erik's death some years after the events of the Opera house. We can assume that many years have passed. 1870 seems a reasonable time frame.

I'm one of the biggest Phantom fans out there. I listen to the entire musical several times a year and know almost all of the songs by heart.

That being said, the movie was such a letdown. Singing was subpar, plot changes were weak, and it just didn't have the magical feel of the musical

Emmy Rossum was a good Christine, Patrick Wilson was a good Raul, the film failed because Gerard Butler was a horrible Phantom.

I agree on Wilson, but I didn't like Rossum as Christine. Personal preference though

If I am Andrew Lloyd Webber I am looking at the success of Les Miserables and realizing that going with Joel Schumacher as a director was a bad idea. I'd push through a remake using a similar formula Tom Hooper used on Les Miserables: bigger-named cast, live singing, etc.

ETA: Also...hire a better make-up artist. The "disfigured" face of the Phantom was hardly worth getting scared over.
