I just watched Coppolla's Bram Stoker's Dracula. I'm not sure what I think of it. Gary Oldman was very good. Anthony Hopkins was good. Winona Ryder was pretty. Keanu Reeves sucked. That man really can't act drama, I'm sorry.

It seems like they went for a Stylized movie. But in my opinion it ended up more stilted, both the pictures and the dialogue. I dunno.

But I really liked the customes, and the various versions of Dracula's make-up, as an old man, as a beast, as a half-bat. Very well done.

Dracula's castle as featured on the film is for sale. Let's all put our moneys together and buy!

Groovy, baby! I was just looking for a nice and cosy mountain vacation house for those romantic holidays.

Plus, I'm sure my cat will love chasing after those rats that run upside-down from the beams.

Provided he can do the inverted tippiy-toe kitten dance that Eolake mentioned once...

I haven't seen this one - beyond a few seconds I saw once on TV - but remember it mostly for the Treehouse of Horror episode it inspired, and the Super Fun Happy Slide which I'm sure Dracula did not install in his castle! :-)

I've seen the whole movie, and you're right: Dracula didn't install this ride! :-D
