moomin123's Dracula review

Bram Stoker's Dracula...MY FAVOURITE FILM OF ALL TIME!!!


My title says it all, I love Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula, it's incrdible, the best vampire film, no wait, best HORROR film ever. I dunno what to say, I love it, my favourite movie ever. 
Gary Oldman is a brilliant Dracula, both as an old and as a young man. And although I may get a lot of hate mail for this, I think he's better than Béla Lugosi. Sure Lugosi is the most iconic Dracula, but Gary Oldman perfected the vampire lord. I also love the soundtrack to the film, the music is brilliant, especially the beginning music during the flashback of Dracula's origins and the music when Dracula turns into a wolf and bites Lucy. It's by far the best villain soundtrack ever written and played. 
Keanu Reeves is a little bad with an English accent, and I should know, being English myself. Keanu should've been replaced with an actual British actor. But aside with Reeves, he's my only down point, the rest of the film is cinematic gold. Coppola and Gary Oldman at their finest.

Like you said Dracula was the best horror and vampire movie ever made. Keanu Reeves was misted cast in this movie and I always thought Dracula should have been more evil and planing to rule the world.

Well Francis Ford Coppola was trying to retell the original Bram Stoker novel but with his own twist to the story. In the book, Dracula doesn't try to conquer the world, but rather just make England his new vampiric home. I guess he does try to create new vampires for his brethren but at first he only intended Lucy to become a vampire, Mina only joined after because Lucy got killed by Van Helsing.

    Dracula's love for Sex 0

    After watching some of the best Vampire films like, Nosferatu and Dracula (1931), I finally watched the film based on the Whole story. Right from the start, I could see why this is a great version of the story It first shows us how Dracula Became who he is. That was important. It is wonderful to see his origin.From there we see our favorite Crazy Renfield.Not that one!This one!Then Jonathan goes to help Dracula buy a House.Then we skip to Lucy getting Raped… attacked by Dracula. Then he goes aft...
