Let me tell you, it was not easy getting to this movie but I had to put out the effort. It's not a mainstream flick, so the chances of it coming to my little county are slim. Fortunately, since my honey just got his new motorcycle, I can pretty much talk him into riding anywhere. (Pick up some tampons for me at the drugstore, okay?)
On top of that, I also felt like crap since I had a mild case of food poisoning. It was a super hot day and towards the end of the ride, I was about to pass out from the heat. Guess I've got to get a little more acclimated if I'm going to spend time outside in this weather. Get me into the air conditioning, quick! Anyway, I digress. We finally made it and I sat through the previews with anticipation, eagerly waiting for my feature presentation to get going.
And I waited. And waited some more. Oh yes, the movie was playing, it just wasn't going anywhere. After attending an excellent workshop by Roxanne St. Claire, fresh in my mind was the knowledge, each scene in a story needs to move the movie along. It was just not happening with this one.
Adam and Eve, two old vampires, have lived as husband and wife, far apart from each other right now. He's in Detroit and she's in Tangier. He's slipping into deep depression so she comes to America to cheer him up. They have a little blissful time together until her sister shows up and trouble starts.
I know this is not supposed to be a teen vampire movie, but I needed more action, more conflict, more...something. Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton are the perfect vampires and beautiful together. Their acting alone made the trip worthwhile. There were a few nude scenes, but not really enough to make my honey real happy. *rolls eyes* I do have to say, everyone's hair looked fabulous! I love that kind of kinked up, carefree style.
If you're prepared for a slower moving movie, this might work fine for you. Watch the trailer at You Tube and decide. Who know, this might be on DVD real soon. We were the only people in the theater for this show, so I don't think it's burning up the big screen.
