Every time I have seen James Cameron’s Avatar mentioned on tumblr, it has been people remarking on how unremarkable it was; on how astonishing it is that millions of people saw it, it made millions of dollars, and no one remembers it. How no one recalls even a single line of the dialog.
One thing that I really like about the 2004 Final Lair is that it changes “take her” (said to Raoul) to “take him” (said to Christine), which makes sense given that Christine has to untie him from the portcullis, rather than the Phantom cutting him down. But, I kind of wish this was the line in the show itself. Partly because a lot of the time, when the Phantom says it, Raoul is still lying on the ground, dazed, recovering from being nearly strangled to death. Christine is the one who needs to be taking care of him.
This version also implies less that the Phantom is giving Christine into Raoul’s care, as if this has been a contest between him and Raoul for her affections, than that he’s offering Christine her freedom, and part of that is the life of the man he sees now that she genuinely loves. It puts the focus squarely on Christine, the real protagonist.
