Hey! this program put a red line underneath it when I typed TV lower case. In my day, both versions were correct.

Now, I saw Bram Stoker's Dracula in the movie theater when it first came out, and I noticed lots of families with small children in the audience. I thought "Apparently, they don't know what an R rating means, or they don't mind their kids seeing nudity and tons of gore."

Hee hee! When the movie came out, some reviewers gushed over how faithful it was to the book, showing that they had not read the book.

Modern keyboards are too damn crowded in the upper right hand corner! When I try to hit the backspace key, I get ====.
That would be weird to take young kids to see that.

I never read the book, and just assumed the Coppola film was close to the book. How was the film different than the book?

Dracula--movie and book

Well, in the book, this opening sequence in the 15th century, with Dracula swearing an oath and all, just wasn't there. The book begins with Harker's arrival at Castle Dracula. In one speech he makes, Dracula talks like he's remembering being a prince in old Wallachia, or something like that.

This stuff about Dracula meeting in modern times a woman who is the reincarnation of the woman he knew hundreds of years ago. That's become such a cliche of vampire movies. I think the first movie to do that was the 1968 tv movie, Dracula, starring Jack Palance. But there is no suggestion in the book that anybody is a reincarnation of anybody.

There's a lot more. Read the book.

The Package (netflix).
Funny to start out with but really lost steam.
It was "ok".

I think two of the most annoying vampire cliches in modern times are A) vampire hunters being half-vampire and half-human (Like Blade from the Blade movies and Alucard from the Castlevania games) and B) vampires being the good guys who fall in love with humans and choose to only feed off animals (like in those shitty Twilight movies).

For a deliberately stupid couple of movies...they were both surprisingly competent in the action flick department.
