The modern-day story focuses on two beautiful young vampires who are living the good nightlife in New York until love enters the picture and each has to make a choice that will jeopardize their immortality.
There was a time when filmmaker Amy Heckerling made smart relevant films for a teen audience but those days seem long gone. In many ways that is what her latest, Vamps, is about as a centuries old vampire struggles to adjust to modern life with the over reliance on technology and annoying text speak. Unfortunately, in commenting on the differences between the generations she failed to make a film that was remotely interesting or amusing.
Alicia Silverstone, working once again with Heckerling after Clueless, and Krysten Ritter star as vampires and BFF struggling to come to terms with contemporary life whilst both suffering with romantic problems. Silverstone starts spending time with a former boyfriend she hasn’t seen in forty years…
Everybody's right! It's fabulous!
What . The . Fuck
I watched this for free and someone owes me money.
Absolutely, spleen tearingly awful. Basically unwatchable.
Krysten Ritter and (a beautifully aged) Alicia Silverstone.
Perfect timing. A lovingly sincere dark comedy that respects the fluid nature of history (film included). Glad I watched it on the same day Jennifer Lawrence's dismissive comments about silent film went viral. Heckerling's film is an effortless testament to the way our past constantly lives in the present; a young heart with an old soul.
Quirky comedy about "nice" vampires. Charming but not very interesting or funny.
Underused cast. Although Sigourney Weaver at least know what kind of movie she's in.
Film #11 of the 2016 Awards Season Scavenger Hunt!
Task #16: The newest film in my film collection (most recent purchase)
Maybe it's that I watched this essentially back-to-back with Clueless, one of my all time favorite films, or maybe I gave this far too much credit on my first viewing, but the second time around... this just doesn't do much for me? At all?
I mean, it was real fluffy and I like Amy Heckerling and Alicia Silverstone and actually Sigourney Weaver did a fine job in this, but the script is a letdown, I don't really like the premise to begin with, it's kind of uninteresting in the way it's actually brought together, and also... what was up with the Metropolis crap? I? ?????? At least it was a reminder of blessed we are with essentially everything Amy has given us.
Oh man, this film is terrible. It gets a little bit better after it starts, but not much. I don't know what this film was trying to achieve, but it is just painful to watch. The acting is well below what these actors are capable of, and the script and direction is just shoddy. You want a genuinely funny vampire flick, then watch 'What We Do In The Shadows' instead.
Un revisionnement pour une raison quelconque et c'est plus charmant cette fois quand on ne s'attend pas à grand chose. Ce n'est pas dénué d'intérêt, mais on dirait vraiment un pilote télé (autant visuellement que scénaristiquement) qui tente de trouver son pied, sans jamais vraiment réussir, tout en étant un peu brouillon et fourre-tout.
It took me two years to finally get around to watching this movie and now that I have I must admit that it doesn't suck as much as I expected it to. It's a silly, girly take on friendship, love and vampires and I had fun watching it. I think that the cast is amazing, though, I was so happy to see Sally from 3rd Rock from the Sun. My favorite character, however, was Vlad Tepes with a penchant for impaling :) and the Times Square through the ages sequence made me feel a bit sappy too. Cute movie.
An odd love letter to cinephilia that doubles as a meditation on coming to terms with growing old, packed in Rytter & Silverstone bubblywrap. I particularly enjoyed Heckerling's remolding of Silverstone into a cinematic goddess/muse in the mold of Jeanette MacDonald, Diane Keaton, and Meg Ryan (but esp. Diane Keaton in Annie Hall).
OK.. what did I think of this one? It is a very silly comedy/horror. Not that that is a bad thing. I did find myself enjoying this one... though there wasn't anything too special about it. I found it to be a fun and entertaining film... but pretty much no more then average. Not one I can see watching often but sure I will watch again.
Do you know those kinds of movies you only see when you want to turn of your brain? This is onde of those. ;)
It's hard to believe the genius behind two of my favourite films, Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Clueless, has produced dreck like this. At just 3 years old, this feels absurdly dated. Sigourney Weaver even chokes on the hammy dialogue, unable to deliver a line with any confidence. In all honesty, I came here for Dan Stevens but I'm sure he wishes this movie, like the vampires in it, never see the light of day.
It's so silly, but I love it. XD
