forgottenbennet: (Queen of the Damned (title))
My widely held and secret (only until now) belief is that Anne Rice secretly hates the IWTV movie adaptation and Loves the QotD movie adaptation (or perhaps loves them both)

My reasoning is that Anne was at first so strongly against TC being Lestat in the first place and TC was a very popular actor at the time and so therefore after she seen the movie she got to thinking "This'll make me big bucks even if it does suck!" *So, she says she loves it.

And then years later some period of time before QotD is released we hear from Anne yet again on her site praising the new movie (I remember this clearly despite I can't recall the words of it). It wasn't until it was after it was released that she say that lot of fans didn't like it for one reason or another. It was only then she decided that she would say that she didn't like the movie at all. Now sometime after the release her official site was given a makeover (ewww remember that horrid purple travesty? Now it's horrible brown-sh orange travesty) and the mention that she once liked the film mysteriously vanished, making it seem as if she never like it is the first place, which is not true. I guess Anne or her webmaster never counted on mentions of, on various sites that she once states and I indeedy-do quote

An announcement from Jorge Saralegui, the producer:
Michael Rymer flew to New Orleans and showed Anne Rice the movie. This is her official statement:

"QUEEN OF THE DAMNED is an energetic and innovative rendition of the Vampire Chronicles, featuring fine performances, and a magnificent look. Well directed, elegant and intriguing, the film is surely destined to take its place among notable modern interpretations of vampire mythology."

I don't recall if this was the exact quote that was on her official site but you will find this all over the internet (and couple of places on this journal) if you know where to look.

And all in all these are just theories, not facts, but if I had to put money on it, I'd bet that Anne Rice secretly liked/loved the QotD movie but doesn't want it advertised and it might decrease any or all booksales from her current or future works (and possibly the theorized Tale of the Body Thief movie that might be planned).

ETA: Do I believe that t would have made a better film if the majority of the deleted scenes were left in the movie? Yes. I even think it would've helped the audience to understand everything and everybody and their motivations more had they been left in (especially the movies Lestat/Jesse love story both the extended scene in Lestat's Hollywood mansion with Jesse and extended flight sequence)

Monster or Horror movies I recommend (no bashing my choices or I WILL NOT be pleased)

-Queen of the Damned
-Red Riding Hood
-Scream 1 - 3
-Let Me In
-Let the Right One In
-Van Helsing
-From Hell (because Jack the Ripper was a truly human monster)
-The Brothers Grimm (not really horror but it's very creepy but also a little silly, ditto for Van Helsing)
-The Mummy and The Mummy Returns, (I personally don't count the third one as canon)
-Sleepy Hollow
-Rasen (Spiral - the original sequel It is too underrated. It's brilliant in my opinion)
-Ringu 2
-Ringu: 0 Birthday
-The Ring
-Rings (a short film which takes place between The Ring and the Ring 2)
-The Ring 2
-BeetleJuice (totally wonko creepy but I love it)
-Bram Stoker's Dracula
-The Underworld Trilogy (I haven't seen Awakening yet)

If your tastes to the entirely brainless then I recommend (also neither is it horror nor about monsters, but shapeshifters and giant bloodsucking Fairies!):

The Twilight Series (because calling it a saga is insulting and utterly and completely wrong)

-New Moon
-Breaking Dawn part 1

-Interview with the Vampire (solely because Tom Cruise stinks as Lestat in this)

(Ah what I'd give for a book series totally and completely about Leah Clearwater. Written by someone who can actually write. (Not Stephenie Meyer!)

If you like to make fun of twilight the I recc this (I Totally Adore It!):

Vampires Suck (the uncut version)

Worthy of Special Mention:

The television series

-Moonlight was canceled much too soon. It was an absolutely awesome show that was taken from us too soon.

-Grimm (the new NBC television show)

-Once Upon A Time (for those fairy tale lovers out there (there's no horror and rarely any monsters) This show is worth the mention here for the Evil Queen/ Mayor Regina and Mr. Gold/Rumpelstiltskin (especially him) alone.

As of this posting that is where my list ends I may add more later.

I know I post about a certain....Creature from time to time but a recent post she made
in the IwtV section (totally Off-Topic she she add something VC -related to the post or DELETE it. If she wanted to post it anywhere, then why not at the Twilight board? Oh yeah thats right, she doesn't like feeling outnumbered Pity there is no abuse category for Off-topic related stuff...

Anyway this is what the Creature said about the star of the Twilight movie Kristen Stewart

Ah, the 'genius' of Twilight... The star of the new Twilight movie, who plays Bella said she did not read the books because 'I couldn't wrap my head around all four huge stories at once.' This is what she told Scifi wire.

They're not that complicated! How stupid is this girl!

Thats right she's STUPID because she didn't want to read the books before doing the role? that's just ignorance on the Creatures part.

Did she not even read the entire thing or did she just skip to the bottom to get the dirt to start bashing a member of the Twilight cast for having their Own Mind?!

This is what KS said in full and I think Creature purposely ignored it;

"I don't want the really hardcore fan base to think I'm the Twilight antichrist, but I was so bogged down by having to live the book for so long that I couldn't move on from there," Stewart (The Messengers) said in an interview. "To live something like that for months on end is kind of a heavy thing. So I have not moved on, but I will, because we're going to start preproduction fairly soon, within the next couple of months, on the next one. So I'll start on it."

Creature much not think KS needs a life outside of her vampire movie role. How dare she if she does! *headdesk*

Yes Creature is codename for someone very familiar to me but when I saw this I couldn't ignore it and had to post

Again I'm not defending Twilight but the actress who portrays the female lead.
