Interview with the Hot Vampire

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 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.


  1. "Conan, what is best in life?"
    "To crush your enemies,
    To see them driven before you,
    And to hear the lamentation
    Of the women."

  2. I am looking for Red Sonya

  3. I've been meaning to watch Interview with the Vampire for years, but haven't yet. I'm quite a fan of Brad Pitt, but because he is an excellent actor, not for his looks which is why girls like him. I can't can't can't stand Tom Cruise. I cannot sufficiently express his suckage as an actor.

    I do, however, have the soundtrack to Vampire, because I'm a huge fan of Elliot Goldenthal's music. It is a very good soundtrack, full of creepiness and weirdness. Good stuff.

  4. Oh, yeah, and one of these days I will watch Conan the Barbarian out of morbid curiosity.
