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.
I love Coppolla's Dracula. The only other one I've seen is the old Bela Lugosi B&W one, and while they are very different types of movies, I'd put then about equal in terms of how much I liked them.
They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it is not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance. - Terry Pratchett, Equal Rites
