Another Friday, another day.
Well, early as it is, I've already watched a movie today. I finished reading the book Interview with the Vampire yesterday. So, today I pulled out our SLP copy from tv and watched it. Now, clearly it was badly edited because it's very jumpy and a lot of things are never really explained. Good thing I read the book. Anyway, so this movie is kind of interesting. In a way it seemed rather...humorous. I think that may just be me, though, because I don't take vampires very seriously. That's all Bram Stoker's fault because Dracula was absolutely silly.
Anyway, so this movie. First, Brad Pitt looks exceptionally nice in this movie. He's completely deadpan, like everyone else and that was kind of irritating, but he's definitely nice to look at. I found Blonde Tom Cruise kind of distracting. A bit of poor casting, I think. He does his best but, come on... Tom Cruise sucking people's blood? I think not, friend. As for Antonio Banderas...as a vampire. Maybe not. Actually, his long flowing black hair reminded me of James Earl Jones's character in Conan the Barbarian. Has anyone seen that movie?
So this movie involves a lot of blood sucking (because that's what vampires do) and whispering their lines (because that's what vampires do...?). Oh, yeah, and Brad Pitt. And that's all there is to say about that.
In other news... If anyone here hasn't seen A Mighty Wind, I say to you "Wha' happened?" Actually, I say to you: watch it, because it's funny.
Over and out.
