Well, as much as I liked preacher I wasn't a fan of the vampire thing there... It's been done to death already the whole "Oh vampires don't REALLY have a problem with garlic or crucifixes"-thing... And he's another one who doesn't actually NEED to go around killing people (even if he still does time to time) which makes it far less of a curse... and it's really weird that the goth vampire he met in the "blood and whisky" special got his idea of vampires from Bram Stoker's Dracula. Considering everything we got to learn about that character it would have made more sense if he had read up on Ann Rice...

If I only liked flaming homosexual comic characters I'd probably stayed away from Preacher altogether...

No but seriously. Seems like there are thousands of vampires in pop culture who can't turn into bats and aren't hurt by crucifixes and yada yada. And every time one of them pops up it has to be pointed out, like it was a very original thing to do, only it's been done a thousand times by now. And every writer who creates a vampire who can't turn into a bat or be hurt by crucifixes also seem to think that these ideas were really stupid, but seriously, if you've agreed to the possibility that someone can have eternal life and some kind of superpowers and live on blood it's not like it can ever become any less realistic than it already is by adding bat-changing etc.

So I think Cassidy was carrying on a pretty tired theme there... But on the whole I loved Preacher. Despite the lack of flaming homosexual main characters.

So I finally saw this movie and, while it wasn't cheesy like a lot of modern horror flicks (which is always a good thing), I don't think it's the jaw-droppingly amazing vampire flick that so many people were saying it was when it came out. Not a bad movie or anything, just nothing I'd really bother to see again.

What will be bad, however, is the remake they're apparently doing of it here in the US. I'm sure that'll be one hell of a bastardization.

Good Ol' American cinema. Every time there's an original movie somewhere else in the world, it NEEDS TO BE REMADE ASAP!

I really liked this film, and as someone has already said, it's less of a vampire movie, and more focused on friendship.

I like to think that Oskar will eventually become an old man that hunts and kills people for Eli, before becoming too feeble to do the job and pouring acid on his face.



Here's hoping they make an American remake of Slumdog Millionaire.

I saw the remake in the theater to kill time because it rained the entire time we were in Boston. It wasn't bad.

I didn't see the original to base it against.
