I watched The Vampire’s Assistant last night. This movie was very strange. Instead of being for 1 book it seems like it was for all of them†. It just seemed like they were jumping around too fast, the movie didn’t explain anything. I mean, it summarized a lot of stuff and even changed things around. Although, I only say that because of how and where Steve was bit by Madam Octa and when he found out that Darren was still alive.
I do know for sure that I am definitely going to continue reading the books now because I feel like I have to find out what really happened in the storyline. The movie was good visually but not so good at explaining things. It was too fast.
I rented it from the Red Box but I think what I want to do is buy the DVD. Better yet, I’d like to eventually get a Blu-Ray player and who knows, Santa might have his little elves building one for me right now as we speak. I’d love to get it on Blu-Ray because I know the Blu-Ray has better extras to watch. Once I’ve finished reading all 12 books I might go back to the movie and watch it again.
Madam Octa was cool in this movie, she was blue and red, just like Spiderman hehe. I love the books but the movie for me was just a tease. Also, is it just me or was John C. Reilly hot in this movie or what? It’s true, being a vampire makes you hotter. I never even gave him a thought until now.
†I was wrong about this. I have read the first 3 books and only the first book was in the movie, the 2nd and 3rd were not even anywhere close to being a part of the movie. I assumed only because they seemed to be rushing through all of these stories. I will continue to read the entire series to get more out of it.
