It may come a surprise to you that one of my favorite movies of all time is Bram Stroker’s Dracula. If a vampire was going to devour me whole then I would give my neck to Gary Oldman for better or worst. He masters the character of Dracula with torturous grace in an indulgent cinematic masterpiece.
As times change so does the image of the vampire.The ideal candidate is no longer the long tresses Transylvanian vamp. Sadly, a clean-cut clan of vampires from the Twilight saga has taken his throne for handsomest of them all.
I confess I read all of the books like a giddy teenager ignoring the fact that Edward could be considered a dangerous stalker with obsessive compulsive issues.
I will also confess to you that I played hookie this afternoon with a friend and we went to Breaking Dawn. We sat in the theater giggling and laughing at the most inappropriate of times. It was when I left the theater – I felt a little guilt for enjoying the movie a little too much.
My heart only has room for so many vampires and Gary Oldman will always be my one true love of darkness. I have a wandering eye, may have cheated a time or two, but he knows I always comeback to his blood-thirsty ways. Afterall, he is Dracula! I just hope he forgives me…
