Question: I have an oddly specific question. I am writing a fan fiction of the Phantom of the Opera, and only using the movie as source material. Does the movie ever state that the Phantom's name is Erik, or is that just from the book?

Question: At what point does Christine realise the "angel of music" is actually the Phantom? At first she doesn't seem to realise, but there is some point where she refers to the angel of music as the "Phantom" with "a face so distorted" To Raoul. So did she know the entire time? Or was there a point where she put the pieces together?
Question: When Jay is about to shoot Monk on the boat, the boat dips in the water (almost the way a car would dip when hitting a pothole). What would cause this? It almost looks like it was done deliberately by a stunt driver. And if it's from hitting a wave or wake, I would think the boat would bounce up first.
Question: When Hoffman abducts Rigg you can see that he is not wearing his pig mask. This makes no sense since we see Hoffman pick up his mask in the flashback at the end. Even if this isn't a movie mistake, why did Hoffman not put on his mask?
Question: Who has higher authority, Vader, or Admiral Tarkin? It seems like they have equal authority over the galactic empire. Shouldn't Vader have authority over Tarkin? Vader is supposed to be the Emperor's second in command.
Question: The extended edition shows that the kidnapped children are forced to eat poison dart frogs for the ritual. After they were rescued, wouldn't they be dead from eating poisonous frogs?
Question: How did the pirates trick the crew into thinking they would keep their promise when they make a deal to release Phillips in exchange for giving them their leader back?
Question: Because the film has gun violence, some mild cursing, and a bit of drug use, should it have a PG-13 rating instead of PG?
Question: When the brothers make their big entrance at the concert, why are the crowd silent - is that explained anywhere?
