I can’t really remember how I found this list but I have to say that I would like to add at least one more person to the list. I would like to add Peyton List. I originally saw her on an episode of Moonlight and remembered her because of her eyes when I recently watched The Tomorrow People. I personally find her eyes to be extremely striking and memorable.
You know, I put up a video showing my ideal cast for the Vampire Chronicles. Anyway, as a result, there are other videos that show other people’s ideal cast. I watched several of those videos and I noticed that a lot of people, myself included, put Jaime Campbell Bower as Armand. I find it interesting that quite a few people did that. I mean, is there so few actors out there right now that are a bit androgynous and that could pass for a 17-year-old?
I know this came out last year, but I still wanted to write about it. I have to disagree with a few of the choices. My biggest disagreement would have to be Robert Pattinson. I’m sorry to all of the Robert Pattinson fans, but I do not think he is deserving of the number one spot. To me, he isn’t very good looking. I’m not saying he’s butt ugly, but like I said, he doesn’t deserve the number one spot. My next biggest disagreement would be Xavier Samuel. I think that he should have been spot number five. My next biggest disagreement would have to Justin Bieber. My issue with him is his age. I mean, is he even legal? If he isn’t legal, then how the hell did he get on the list? Anyway, my last disagreement would have to be Gerard Butler and Channing Tatum. I’m sorry, but I don’t think that they deserve to be on the hot list. Personally, I think that there are better looking guys out there than the guys that I mentioned.
Again, I know this article came out a while, but I have a few problems with this list. My biggest problem with this list is the fact there are vampires from TV shows like Angel and Spike from Buffy, or the vampires from True Blood or the Vampire Diaries. The reason why I have a problem with that is because the list is called the sexiest movie and vampires, and those vampires are from TV shows. That leads me to my next problem. Even if you took out the TV vampires, in my opinion, there are way too many vampires from Twilight. It’s way too much. Anyway, my last problem is the fact that Robert Pattinson is number one on the list. I’m sorry, but he is not that good looking. Personally, I think that Ian Somerhalder, David Boreanaz, and Kellan Lutz are much more better looking.
I know this came out a while ago but I wanted to write about it. Umm…I can’t really say much about the best vampires because I haven’t seen most of the movies or tv shows that were mentioned. However, I would have to agree that Bela Lugosi as the Universal Studios Dracula is the best movie vampire of all time. I mean, no one can beat his Dracula. The only that I would change is to add Max Schreck as Count Orlok in the 1922 Nosferatu. Now, as far as the worst movie/tv vampires…I would have to disagree with Tom Cruise being on the list for his performance as Lestat in Interview with the Vampire. While it’s true that Anne Rice, the author of the novel on which the movie was based, initially protested to Tom Cruise being cast, she eventually praised his performance. I mean, he really did capture Lestat’s spirit as he was in Interview with the Vampire. As for Peter Facinelli as Carlisle Cullen, I’m not sure why he was put as on the list. The only thing I can think of would be his character actually has compassion. I don’t think that’s such a bad thing. Anyway, I found it funny that he was compared to Project Runway contestant Austin Scarlett.
I can’t remember how the subject came up but I was talking to a friend about me not watching shows like Glee and The Vampire Diaries based on my interests in musicals and vampires. Anyway, my friend asked why I don’t watch those tv shows and I said that just because I like musicals and vampires, that doesn’t mean that I’m going to watch every show, movie, etc., out there that deals with musicals or vampires. My point is that just because someone has an interest in something, that doesn’t mean that the person will watch, listen, read, etc., anything and everything related to that subject. Take music as an example. Just because a person likes music, that doesn’t mean that the person will like all kinds of music. The person might just like classical, or just rap, or just pop. Anyway, I’m just saying that people shouldn’t think that a person will everything in a particular subject.
I was watching E!’s show 10 Vampires We Love shortly after I came home from watching New Moon. The show was a countdown of the vampires that the people of E! like. I’ll include the list at the end of this post. Anyway, I have a bone to pick with who they chose to be on the list. I noticed that the list didn’t include, in my opinion, a variety of vampires, and the fact that all, except one, of the vampires are from movies or tv shows that came out within the last ten years. Anyway, what I mean by the lack of variety is that four of the vampires came from two different sources. I find it biased like how this post is. The reason that I have a problem is that they didn’t include other vampires like Henry Fitzpatrick from Blood Ties, Mick St. John from Moonlight or any of the vampires from the Vampire Chronicles or The Lost Boys. I don’t think it’s right to put a relatively unknown vampire like Santinico Pandemonium or Dracula from Dracula 2000 on a list like 10 Vampires We Love when there are better qualified vampires out there.
10. Ian Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore
9. Ashley Greene as Alice Cullen
8. David Boreanaz as Angel
7. Stephen Moyer as Bill Compton
6. Selma Hayek as Santanico Pandemonium
5. Gerard Butler as Dracula in Dracula 2000
4. Wesley Snipes as Blade
3. Kate Beckinsale as Selene
2. Alexander Skarsgaard as Eric Northman
1. Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen
