Beeps Pick: Interview With A Vampire
Why we picked this film: Apes wanted to watch Queen of the Damned so I figured it would be best if we watched this first. We've both seen this before, but its been AGES!
Beeps: Oh Louie... Never at any time in my film watching life have I ever seen a main character that is such a tortured soul. I enjoy the first hour or so of this film, Tom Cruise is effective as the maniacal Lestat, but once he exits from the story, the film begins to take a nose dive. I find myself caring less about the characters as the movie progresses. I mean if our tortured protagonist doesn't give a shit, then why should I? I'd recommend this movie if you've never seen it, it is dark and brooding, and while it does show it's age, (the quality on this DVD is utter shit) it is still a good film, once. However after multiple viewings it just sputters out too hard at the end to be called a classic. 2 and 1/2 stars!
Apes: I still really enjoyed this movie. It is a bit dark and melodramatic, but it some how oddly works for this movie. I enjoy the character development, the anguish and emotion, and the overall feel of the film. I hope this cleans up a bit on Blu Ray because I found the picture quality on dvd less than awesome, but then again it does add to the whole feel of the flick. I think this is definitely worth a watch! Its not scary, its well written, well acted, and an enjoyable story! I give it 3 stars.
Overall we give this film 3 stars.
