    I expected this film to be good, and it just was not. Not only did they cast the wrong actors, but the FX were just not well done (I'd been told the director wanted "classic" traditional FX - that's fine, but goddam, do your homework first), and the story lacked depth. Mel Brooks got it closer to the book than this.

    Rather than being a plot point, Renfield was completely useless. I don't understand why he was even in the…

    Twilight. True Blood. Vampire Diaries. Love stories involving vampires have been very popular in the last 5 years but Bram Stoker’s Dracula did it 21 years ago.

    Since its release, the film directed by Francis Ford Coppola has divided fans. On one hand, it’s the most faithful adaptation of the novel. On the other hand, it added a love story that many felt did not belong.

    However, could the movie have new life in this era? It has all the…

    Ambitiously artistic and disturbing adaptation, but I'm not sure it fully comes together in the end. Lots of incredible visuals, though, and people need to talk more about how awesome Anthony Hopkins is as Van Helsing.

    Coppola's 1992 adaptation of Stoker's classic 1897 novel is a wild one but nice. Probably one of the most faithful ever made of it, a delicious and insane Victorian horror. Gothic to end all Gothics. The whole Dracula story is understandably almost a cliché itself. So the audacity to attempt a modern translation, if naught else came of it, would be fantastic. "Weird" was Coppola's code word, it's said, for avoiding formula. His DRACULA is slick, splashy, big -- definitely…

    (hallé una lista de algunas películas que vi por ahí de junio y que me dio flojera loguear en su momento. será una docena en total, cosa que me da mucha lástima porque en dicho periodo de güeva habré visto unas cuarenta o cincuenta más. treparé las de la lista con notitas de lo que se haya pegado y, si recuerdo algunotra, pues también).

    Seward: An autopsy? On Lucy?
    Van Helsing: No, no, not exactly. I just want to cut off her head and take out her heart.

    Wow, I remembered this movie having style, but not THIS much style. I absolutely LOVE what Coppola is doing in his Dracula. So many movies strive for realism when movies by definition are artificial. I love it when filmmakers embrace the poetry and revel in the flourishes.

    Interesting note: The intercutting between the Harker wedding and Lucy's death scene is crazy similar to the climax of The Godfather. I never made that connection before this viewing.

    There is more to learn from beasts!

    With the classical style of one of the members of the bad boy revolution, Francis Ford Coppola- we get an accurate adaption from the book, Dracula.

    With the transitions and editing learned from years of working on films, we get a classic looking film- with a erotic and gory feel, it took me a while to get through this film, constant sittings of making quarter the way through then going to watch something…
