I just re-watched Bram Stoker's Dracula tonight.

I haven't seen it since it was out in theatres. I thought it was rubbish then, but my Goth-girl friends all loved it.

Sometimes I enjoy a film better on second viewing, once I know what to expect. But that was not the case this time. If anything, I liked it even less.

To be fair, it had some really striking visuals, the music was good, and Anthony Hopkins was fun to watch as Van Helsing. But overall--blech.
It isn't a masterpiece but its still of one the more enjoyable Dracula big screen interpretations. Oldman and Hopkins really make the film, the others...not so much.
