What was your opinion of the movies? I've only seen Interview, but I thought that was excellently done. Tom Cruise, in particular, was amazing.

I haven't seen the movies. I will watch then after I finish Queen of the Damned.

Anne Rice was originally appalled with the casting of Tom as her blond-haired blue-eyed Lestat, but had a complete reversal when she saw him in character on set.

If you are a fan of her writing and of the character of Lestat in particular (and I'm picking up on subtle clues that you might be :wink: ) then you owe it to yourself to watch "Interview..."

I'm told the other two movies are dreadful, though.

I will certainly check it out. And the clues are more than subtle :twisted: I will see if the others truly are dreadful.

Interview with the Vampire is a must see. It's a pretty good film even for those not terribly into the genre. It's just a good drama on every level; and you'll never see Kirsten Dunst's smile the same way afterwards. The others you can ignore---and you *should* ignore the movie adaptation of Queen of the Damned with great prejudice! Ordinarily I am all about watching bad movies for fun, but some things are better left unseen, and are so bad they go right past being funny about it.

What is so bad about the others?
