The third task in the 30 Day Film Challenge taken from #FilmTwitter is:
3. A film that has more than five words
I’m assuming this means more than five words in the title, so I’m going to go with that for this task. My film is Interview With the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles.
This movie was controversial for a few reasons that come to mind, but most infamously for being that “gay vampire movie” with Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt portraying two vampires who experience the ages with a younger female vampire they’ve “adopted” as their child. Many who have seen the film get hung up on that without looking beyond it. And therefore not giving the film the merit it deserves.
It’s one of the most beautifully shot films I’ve seen, and with Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise at the helm, I would seriously doubt it would be a bad film, even if it was a little campy. Sometimes the cast makes all the difference. And this casting was terrific, period.
