I'm watching Dracula. And you know something? It would've been a far, far better movie without Keanu Reeves. Acting so wooden you could've saved a forest by using it for toilet paper manufacture. An English accent so atrocious they should've dubbed a seven year-old Doctor Who fan from Brooklyn over his voice - it would've been more believable. He's not even that attractive, and I say that as a woman who usually goes for the dark-haired skinny geeks.
The movie's only redemption lies in other outstanding cast members - Anthony Hopkins, Gary Oldman, Sadie Frost. Even Winona Rider didn't suck.
That's why I watch this travesty. Well, that and because it's good mindless fun. A well-balanced diet must include a serving of premium cheese every once in a while. And, truth be told, I watch it for Sadie Frost in that red dress.
It sure as shit ain't for Keanu. And that leads me to my question: why the fuck do so many directors ruin their movies by casting him? I've never been able to find a satisfactory answer.
