  1. See, now…this is how unhip and uncool I am.

    At first glance I thought it was Simon Phoenix, Harry Potter, and Hermione Granger.

    THOSE movies, I’ve seen.

    Never saw Blade or Twilight.

  2. No interest in vampire films that don’t star Christopher Lee or Bela Lugosi. I was very disappointed in Coppola’s take on Dracula.

    I’ve only seen the first Harry Potter movie and have read all the novels. That was enough Potter to last me for a lifetime even before I heard how looney the author was!

    As for Twilight, teens and young men are into that !$!$!#$!! For whatever reasons, women like romantic vampire stories. My only use for vampires is staking them…

  3. I’m more of a classic vampire film fan. I like the takes done in the 30s, 40s, and 50s. Basically Hammer Films or Universal.

    I just don’t care for emo vampire films or the Whedonverse Buffy/Angel thing. I have even less use for the Anne Rice stuff.

    As for Rowling, it’s no big secret she’s a far lefty Socialist.

    Parents got upset at her when she declared that Dumbledore was gay a while back… shortly after the publication of the last Potter book.

    Frankly, I didn’t see it and could care less. The way Dumbledore was written in the Potter books he was as asexual as the Professor in Gilligan’s Island. If the author wants to indulge her little fantasies, let her! I was done with Potter even before she started pontificating on everything… People think they can lecture everybody else after they’ve made a few hundred million on a book series — even if said-book series appears to be cribbing from other book series. Potter’s good but I’m not so sure it’s as ground-breaking or will last as long as the Wizard of Oz books and a lot of older fantasy series have.

    The movies are doing a pretty good job I think of turning a lot of people off Harry Potter.
