Fincher: Hey, I wanna do aliens on a planet.
Writer: But it’d work better on a spaceship, claustrophobia etc.

It's so weird that you almost do not realize it while watching the last installment of an unnecessarily long version of J.R.R. Tolkien's novel The Hobbit: There and Back Again, directed by Peter Jackson:
In the beginning Jackson only wanted to do a version consisting of two feature films, nobody understood why he would stretch it to three, with him forced to add new storylines which do not appear in the original book.
While the first two movies cover major…
Though the film is titled Bram Stoker's Dracula, it contains major alterations to the original novel. While Stoker portraits the vampire as a creature without emotions, Francis Ford Coppola adds a romantic story line, between Dracula and Mina.
This might irritate the literature loving viewer but is in fact what creates the true fascination here, as one feels pity for the monster—also thanks to an overwhelming acting performance from Gary Oldman who depicts the dark lord evenly friendly-loving and deeply demonical.
There is still much left to say—but in the end it is one of the most emotional classic vampire films I watched so far.
