Well, this looks painful, even if it has Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska and Tom Hiddleston [acting ability dubious, as I have never actually seen anything with him] in it. I watched a trailer for it and nearly fell asleep. Blah blah blah black roses blah Byronically tortured musician with stringy-haired Weltschmerz blah blah blah regal androgynous lover blah blah long-term relationship of stormy passion blah blah blah more Goth stereotypes than you can shake a pentacle at blah blah love triangle when energetic little sister comes to town blah blah mopey mopey blah blood Popsicles snoooooooooooooore.

Well, okay, I actually liked the blood Popsicles…at least until the characters went all metatextual and starting discussing how odd they were. Look — I don’t mind people sitting around and talking, especially since it’s all my characters really do. However, when the people start narrating what’s obviously going on in front of their faces, I find it a tedious turn-off.

Kinda surprised these vampires didn’t die of boredom.
