this is not a rhetorical question, did this EVER look cool? i was only 10 in 1992 and my 1992 was like, wayne's world and weird al, so i don't know what grown ups were into. aside from the super hasty script that tried to shove too much in to too short a time, awkward rushed pacing, the movie was visually confusing. some scenes were so lush and beautiful and perfect, and some look like if me and mouse decided to make a dracula movie in his yard. like, all the outdoor scenes were filmed in front of a pink wall in a studio. i didn't expect them to actually go to transylvania or anything but it looked so bad. and like... dracula's malevolent shadow moving independently of dracula looked like something from looney tunes.
i'm a pretty vocal opponent of sexy draculas (like, draculas with sunglasses and girlfriends and leather jackets and shit) so that was working against the movie from the start, but it was truly a stinker and i can't believe it got such rave reviews and is considered a good movie. there were some good parts, but i wish someone had given this the old college try sometime other than 1992 so we didn't have to put up with winona ryder, keanu reeves, or gary oldman in a four non blondes costume. p.s. the best part is when dracula is in this form:
everyone is advancing on him and trying to kill him, but then he turns into a pile of rats and everyone screams and is like AHHHHH GET THEM AWAY FROM ME.
so i don't have much to talk about besides bram stoker's dracula, i'm not going to lie. i'm wearing a dress today and it's a pain in my ass. i got it with the gift card kati got me for my birthday.
basically all plus size garments are made for women with huge jugs and as someone without huge jugs i have a lot of exposed chest and extra fabric that i'm gamely trying to manage.
okay, i have a meeting in five minutes so i have to go ! sorry this entry was entirely about bram stoker's dracula and jug problems.
