As long as it makes up for the abomination that was the second VC movie (That Which Shall Not Be Named) I'm good.

Ah, she has another book soon to be released. Will it be the Lestat of old? Because when she re-found religion, Lestat wasn't really ... Lestat, you know?

Perhaps this time they'll even use real actors, as opposed to alleged "movie stars".

I liked that movie. It's very World of Darkness. Not saying it's a quality film, but if you like the right kind of genre, it works beautifully.

It would be hard for them to do more to hurt the brand than she and her kid already have.

She later un-rediscovered religion (and for the stupidest of reasons), but I doubt she'll do "the Lestat of old." Her pattern has been to constantly try and top herself. Gotta make Lestat even more outrageous (while getting away with it, because everyone has to love The Brat Prince) than last time. That's why I started losing interest after Queen of the Damned, and quit her entirely shortly thereafter.

After RingTFA, I question this entire project. I thought we were basically "over" the whole "vampires as sensitive artistic souls" schtick.

Got a cite for her undiscovering religion and her reasons?
I loved the first three books (except the end of Queen of the Damned) but when she got into the whole god vs satan thing I had to switch off. I'd like to see why she changed her tune. Might make me want to read the new one when it comes out.

It's a good time to reboot the movies really.  Vampires are in and the bar has been set so low that as long as they don't sparkle people will be relieved.  And like someone else noted they can't do worse than what she's done with it.
 
2014-08-10 02:20:22 PM  
Her books were ok when I was younger, but as the series goes on they get more and more cliched. Every one Lestat ran into was the most beautiful he'd seen and he just kept getting more and more powerful. They got boring.

I really dug the 2nd and 3rd books... slogged through Tale of the Body Thief and Memnoch.  I would recommend the 1st three to anyone, as they are a pretty fun read, but then to just stop right there.

Didn't know much about her life or where the story went after that, and didn't much care.

Like The Dark Tower, after the third book it gets bland.

I mean everyone agrees that they suck but they get every writing and producing gig in Hollywood.

As for the books, I only read the first three and it's too bad they couldn't have made them all into movies, Tom Cruise was a good Lestat, IMO. It does seem a little late to try to get into the vampire thing.

She could have at least apologized for foisting that terrible religious retcon onto her early VC fans...which led to the crappy sparkle vampires we have today.

It's because of Anne that we eventually had Twilight, and twi-tards afterward. She turned vampires into bisexual rockstars. So it goes that Stephanie Meyer watered that down into vampire high school boyfriends.

Well from what I remember it was how religion shunned people and it sickened her, since she felt it was all about compassion, love the sinner not the sin type stuff.

Seems a valid reason and its not like she's left religion completely just is now agnostic more than atheist.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: I remember when every lardass at the nearest Ren Fest or RPG convention would swear her books were the greatest things ever.


That's because there wasn't the deluge of vampire stuff there is today.

I personally, preferred Poppy Z. Brite's "Lost Souls" - which has been rumored for movies for decades now (God, I am old). Same with her "Exquisite Corpse" - not a vampire book, and not a book that could possibly be done properly and released in theatres.

That said, if Alexander Skarsgard could be convinced to stay with the vampire thing and do Lestat, I'd be first in line.

And it wasn't very good book either.

I disagree, Tom Cruise was a decent Lestat, at least Lestat as he was written in "Interview with the Vampire" before Rice decided to make him the most perfect vampire ever. And Townsend didn't seem to be a bad Lestat as he was written after Interview. The problem with Queen of the Damned was the writers trying to combine several books and writing some piss poor dialogue. They made an ok vampire movie, but a piss poor Vampire Chronicles movie. The soundtrack for Queen of the Damned was pretty solid though.

Tom Cruise played a great egotistical manic full of himself gay guy who thinks he's the best at everything.  I don't know where he found that in himself.  What a method actor.

I thought Queen of the Damned was the better movie. I know, not a popular opinion, but it captured the feel of the books better IMHO.
Tom Cruise was physically opposite of Lestat, lacked his charisma and is not really suited for movies without explosions and "I'm pooping" drama face acting.
Stuart Townsend had Lestat's looks and self attitude down well, I thought. I also thought the way they killed Akasha was a better climax than the book (she fell through a window and cut her head off...wtf?)
But QOTD was pretty low budget and poorly written.
Also, Brad Pitt's Louis was wooden, and I love Pitt.

I started re-reading the entire series a couple months ago.  Finished Tale of the Body Thief and got about fifty pages through Memnoch and just gave up.  One huge problem is that she creates some interesting characters and has this whole world to explore but she made Lestat the main character.  Marius is a much better character to focus on but he only ended up with one book (haven't read it yet) and she seems to have no clue what to do with Armand.

He's probably too old at this point, but Jack Gleeson could make for an awesome Armand.

I currently see Jamie Campbell Bower as Louis.  Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Marius.  And despite having the wrong look and probably being too old, Joseph Gordon Levitt has the charisma to play Lestat.

Actually, Cruise was a great Lestat for "Interview With A Vampire" as description of Lestat was as told by Louis.  In "The Vampire Lestat", the truth of the myth was told (and Louis was said to be a bit soft and overly dramatic) - this was the Lestat I found interesting.  "Queen of the Damned" was. . .a book.  It was interesting to read. . .once.

Read 'Ramses the Damned' and enjoyed it. Never read the sequel.

And if you are going to do another vampire movie, do 'I, Strahd".  Or maybe do a TV eries on Ravenloft.  As someone said earlier - liches, baby!  (and werewolves, mummies and a death knight named "Lord Soth")

Exactly. And she follows that pattern somewhat in her werewolf books, "The Wolf Gift" and " The Wolves Of Midwinter". She cannot write about impoverished states, or mediocre scenarios... Everything is lush, shiny, dramatic, purple prose and unrealistic dialogue. I had to wonder myself how it is she thinks of herself as a writer when she cannot accurately capture or examine the human condition. She just writes fantasy. And writes about herself.
She is one of the shallowest authors out there, but she seems to enchant people well.

wadjet: unrealistic dialogue


Go back to your Lifetime "movies" then.

It is a series of books about vampires, in which the universe includes mummies, ghosts, and what may or may not be God and the Devil.  And you want "realistic dialogue". How exactly do you write for "realistic" vampires and such?

Meh.  Her books are fine for their given genre.  If you go into her sorts of books looking for realism and what you think is "realistic", you're going to be disappointed with almost all fiction books by a single author that's not shaped/edited by corporate.

In that case, it will always be just one person's imagination, and therefore about them.  What they think is interesting, what issues they are dealing with.  That kind of bleed-over is what makes books worth reading.  If you find her works shallow, I'd say you're barely self aware and projecting heavily, or maybe have a smaller than represented sampling of said works.

If you take issue with it, you may want to go back to:

I can't wait for the crossover novel where Anita Blake starts out hunting Lestat and ends up having sex with him and they both fight God and Satan at the same time and win.
