Re: Movies and Vampires

Although I'm not a big vampire fan myself, I will say this...

Bram Stoker's Dracula was an amazing piece of work. I don't even really like Keanu Reeves much, but that didn't even hold that movie down. Gary Oldman, on the other hand, did a fantastic job as Dracula, imo.

I understand the original poster and their disdain for so many vampire flicks popping up, but then again, what genre hasn't been overdone. Not many people these days are breaking the mold with new ideas, so we get to sit in this slump. Time for some brainclouds in Hollywood to start appearing and thinking more of the movie than the money...heh, as if that will ever happen. :rolleyes:

Re: Movies and Vampires

Bah. Vampire movies have going down the "Non-accurate path" for a bit...and it just makes me want to go to Hot Topic, pull out a Twilight Book and rip each page out while saying "This page Sucks" to each one. Then after i would say "Screw Team Edward and Team Jacob. Give me Team Lugosi!"

Yes even the 1992 version of Dracula looked better. I don't mind a new Frankenstein movie with some heartwarming moments till the big chase into the windmill but don't make him kiss a girl. Or maybe i can make Twilight again but this time, the first time they kiss, the vampire would drink there blood and Laugh at there corpse.

And indeed Lugosi is my most loved Dracula http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000509/
"I don't Drink... Vine."

Re: Movies and Vampires

I'd love to see a television series that more or less repaints the setting of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein into a modern setting. Although then it'd more or less be a live action series of Urasawa's Monster, only sans the many many side characters.
