Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994)

This is an interview where I wouldn’t accept the invitation. These Vamps are not the wussy sparkly kind that you see today. These will burn in sunlight and drain you like a juice box. Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt work excellently with each other. Kirsten Dunst steals the show as the bloodthirsty killer girl with killer curls. Christian Slater doesn’t have a huge role, but an important one. Plus I think he’s awesome. It was nice to see Thandie Newton in this, I’ve always liked her and although Banderas had a limited role in this movie, he did a great job. The movie flows really well and you start to really like the characters. Anne Rice is an excellent writer, so it was nice she did the screenplay for this movie. A classic 90’s Vampire film.

81/100

Jumanji

A board game with real life consequences, very neat idea for a movie. Even if this movie feels a little corny at times, it’s quite enjoyable. I especially like the hunter that comes out of the board game and runs out of ammo so he picks up a new fancy rife to hunt Robin Williams with. Also, poor David Allan Grier’s car keeps getting destroyed as a running joke. Young Kirsten Dunst does a great job, I remember falling in love with her when I watched this movie the first time. A good family film.

Bachelorette

I think I liked Bridesmaids better than this film about some crazy gals at a wedding. There were some funny moments and I did like all the actors in the film. Lizzy Caplan was probably my favorite, followed by Isla Fisher and Kirsten Dunst. As far as the guys in the cast Adam Scott and James Marsden were awesome. My favorite scenes were with Caplan in the airplane and all the scenes involving the dress getting destroyed. This shows that no matter how bad things get, weddings still can happen.

Melancholia

I really wanted to like this movie. I had heard rave reviews and I was excited to see it. Now that I have actually watched this, I feel disappointed. Sure the acting was wonderful and the ending was very beautifully done. Excellent cinematic work. Lars von Trier did some excellent directing. This was the best role Kirsten Dunst has done… but I’m sorry the movie was boring and depressing through most of the film. There was also too much moping around that wasn’t explained well as to why.

Spider-Man

Sam Raimi does the super-hero thing right in this great film. Tobey Maguire is an excellent (nerdy) Peter Parker and Willem Dafoe shows how crazy he can be in Spider-Man as the Green Goblin. I especially liked the scene where he is talking to himself in the mirror. J.K. Simmons was hilarious as was Bruce Campbell. I did not care for Kirsten Dunst in this movie, she was not a good M.J. Another complaint I had was the Macy Gray scene but at least it was short. Awesome movie though. Very fun.
