@c-beams Wrong age, but True Blood's Eric Northam has the right mix of ego and vulnerability to play Lestat. Ryan Gosling could make an interesting Lestat. Honestly, I'd love to see a remake. No, 2 remakes, one comedic. Seth Rogen and James Franco and Jonah Hill could replace Louis, Lestat and Armand, in that order. LOL
Don't we miss the days when vampires were real vampires? Awesome movie, 9.5 out of 10 !
Oh yeah, almost forgot.
Great movie in spite of some poor casting calls. 8.5/10
@literati @Flicker2013
I've read them all too.
And me too, Tom Cruise??? WTF!
Lestat is 6 foot, blond hair and complexion, and with aqualine(in my mind) features...pretty much the opposite of Tom. Loved the movie but Tom, though with his talent he could pull off some scenes quite well, made me cringe. Tom wouldn't have been able to kill a pack of wolves and wouldn't have been selected by Marious. I wasn't so happy with Brad as Louis either. He had the 'brood' and troubled conscience, but...he wasn't my image of Louis. And though Antonio was a great, but way too old. Armand was only like 17 when he was turned. (Armand's story would make a great movie...)
My image of Lestat looks like Alex Pettyfer or Travis Fimmel and has the flamboyance of...hmmmm??
@literati HAHAH I am a HUGE Lestat Fanboy!
I love this story and all the rest.
Have read all of the stories of Lestat.
I agree and the next portrayal was not a good choice either imho. LMK In a [pm] who you think might be a good choice?
If I ever won the lotto I would want to make a TV series about the Anne Rice novels of Lestat.
Pure Bliss that would be having a show weekly.
A gurl can dream. Cheers...
I read the book when I was a teen and for years, it remained my favorite story. To this day, I can't look at the cover of the film ads without a primal scream releasing involuntarily at the sight of Cruise as Lestat! It's just wrong. (shudders) But, the rest of the cast is amazing, so this film gets a 9/10, with a warning to sensitive viewers of graphic violence. It gets intense.
One of the better movies ever made...
Mesmerizing and beautiful, A dark and astonishing Tale. A story of danger and flight, love and loss. Suspense and intense, filled with extraordinary power of the senses. A must watch for Vampire lovers and all alike
Wow awesome movie 5/5
It hadn't even been a year since a plantation owner named Louis had lost his wife in childbirth. Both his wife and the infant died, and now he has lost his will to live. A vampire named Lestat takes a liking to Louis and offers him the chance to become a creature of the night: a vampire. Thus, the start of a vampire tells his epic life story: love, betrayal, loneliness, and hunger.
