    Greatly Disapointed

    I rented ''Interview with the Vampire'' and ''Queen of the Damned'' at the same time. I watched ''Interview'' first. I absolutely LOVED the movie. Some of the special effects were slightly cheesey, but they were more than made up for by the supurb acting. I next watched ''Queen''... And I must say, I was greatly disapointed. First of all, there were MAJOR differences between the book and the movie. That, of course, is to be expected in a movie based on a book. But this was so far off that the only similarities the characters and a tiny portion of the plot. The next thing that I disliked was Akasha. She was introduced late in the film. It seemed like the moment she came into the film, she was dead. I could go on and on about things that I didn't like, but I think I will stop here. This movie is recomended to only people that have not read the Vampire Chronicles or anything by Anne Rice, for if you have and watched the movies, you will be very insulted my the gross misuse of her genius characters.

    What Queen?

    I just love the movie Interview with the Vampire, so before I watched Queen of the Damned, I was psyched to see if it was as good as Interview was. Guess what, it's not. For starters, Tom Cruise did a fantastic job at protraying Lestat in Interview. He had the act and the look down. When I saw Stuart Townsend as Lestat, I was deeply disappointed and depressed. Townsend was not the right actor to portray Lestat. His look was totally wrong and he acted like another vampire, not Lestat. Lestat was blond in the novels and Cruise accomplished that for Interview, but Townsend's hair looked at times too brown or blond with black roots.Why not have actor Paul Walker play Lestat, at least he's blond enough. I was also disappointed at Aaliyah's character. In my opinion, she did an okay job, but her character was hardly in it. She didn't come into the picture until mid way through the film. I found the other vampires looked too obvious. Interview made the vampires look at least a little human. I found this film too hard to watch. I wanted to turn it off and put in Interview with the Vampire in the dvd player instead. I rather watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer instead of Queen of the Damned again. Does that answer your question?
