We’ll also hear from film director Brian Taylor on his thoughts on the film during his interview with Blake J. Harris. The Movie Bitches review The Girl on the Train and you’ll hear which vampire cult classic we will be covering next week!

The "Girl on the Train" mini review made me wonder, does anyone really think it's really that good of an idea to read a book before seeing the movie? I mean, it's one thing if it happens to be something you've already read, if the movie is still wayyyyyyyy off from coming out or being made, or if it's the kind of story that isn't going to be ruined by already being privy to every twist and turn, but if there's like a movie coming out in two weeks and you decide you're going to read the book in that time, aren't you just looking for reasons to not like it? Do you WANT the movie to be just like the book? Where's the fun in that? In my own experience, I think there have been times where it has prevented me from seeing a movie as JUST a movie that succeeds or fails on its own merits, so if a book sounds interesting to me, but I hear that a movie will be made with actors and filmmakers that I enjoy, I'll just hold off and maybe read it afterwards.

i watched vampire's kiss last night ... i'm lost for words ... i was interrupted half way through for about 1/2 hour and i very nearly went back to the start to make sure my memories were real ... i thought cage was nuts in kiss of death but this performance is on another level .. i was actually on edge because of it .. just kept hearing jason shout "what is happening???"

I completely agree with you. I know it's TV but I worked with a person who got really into Game of Thrones but had never read the books. After the second season they basically binged and read all the books over the course of the summer and fall. When the third season came around they were just complaining about how many things they were leaving out or were missing. It really hurt their enjoyment of the show. Now that the show has kinda passed the books, they love the show again. I found the whole thing very bizarre.

my sister gave me her copy of girl on a train about 2 months ago and said it was a brilliant read etc etc ... i was going to read it and then i remembered the movie was about to come out ... so i decided to just wait for that. similar thing happened with gone girl. i wasn't too impressed with either film to be honest but after we watched GOAT my sister complained it wasn't as good as the book.. they left alot out and changed stuff ... but it did start a conversation about how fast these books are getting turned into movies.

if you have only read a book in the previous year are you really going to enjoy the film ... all the twists and turns are going to be really fresh in your mind. does a thriller remain a thriller if you know exactly whats about to happen ... not that it was difficult to figure GOAT out, they pretty much gave it away 1/3 of the way through the movie .. much like gone girl. after that it was just people crying for an hour. the term "misery porn" never felt so apt.

That's how I felt about all those terrible 80's musicals. But I assure you, Vampire's Kiss is a definitive bad movie on the level of the room and sleepaway camp.

Vampire's Kiss I believe marks the official start of over-the-top Nicolas Cage performances, with the second being Deadfall in 1993.

Working in a library for almost 13 years, I have seen firsthand how far people will go to read a book before the movie comes out. Da Vinci Code was a huge book to begin with and we could barely keep a copy on the shelves, but when the movie was coming out we had a hold list a dozen people long for the book, same thing for the Twilight series and Gone Girl. I think it's just a matter of people being able to say "the book was better" if the movie isn't up to their expectations. The adaptations that I've seen are hit or miss in comparison to the books, but it's nothing that will completely ruin the viewing experience for me, unless it's really egregious like The Great Gatsby or The Scarlet Letter.

As for this movie, is it ever explained why Cage has an accent?

Ryan Sz, I still don't think this explains it, but I found this pretty interesting:

Bite your tongue! ;) Sleepaway Camp is one of my favorite movies. Yes, everything they say in the episode is true and it is DEEPLY flawed; but I don't think it's just inept, incompetent film-making.

I think he's going for a really bad transatlantic accent. Unfortunately it just comes off as bad acting.
