Rolling Stone’s Best and Worst Film and TV Vampires

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.

The Volturi

I recently found a blog that talked about the picture of the Volturi that leaked from New Moon. When I first saw the picture, I was like “Oh my God! That’s Dakota Fanning, Jaime Campbell Bower, Cameron Bright, and Christopher Heyerdahl?” I can see the resemblance between Jaime Campell Bower, who was Anthony in Sweeney Todd, and Cameron Bright, who was Jimmy/Leech, the mutant who’s power neutralized other mutants’ power in X-Men 3, and their respective characters. But when it came to Dakota Fanning and Christopher Heyerdahl, I didn’t recognize them at all. As for Michael Sheen, I can’t really say because I haven’t seen a lot of his pictures or movies. Anyway, with the exception of Michael Sheen, I really think that each actor that was chosen are the appropriate choices for each character, especially Christopher Heyerdahl. I think that he can pull off the creepiness of Marcus, based on what I’ve seen in Supernatural and Are You Afraid of the Dark. To all Supernatural and Are You Afraid of the Dark fans, he played the demon Alister in season 4, the alien Leonid and Nosferatu in The Tale of the Thirteenth Floor and The Tale of the Midnight Madness. Anyway, I can’t wait to see New Moon.
