Since 2001, we've brought you uncompromising, candid takes on the world of film, music, television, video games, theater, and more.

As it turns out, “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” fared well when it came to two of the biggest awards ceremonies, BAFTA and the Oscars. The cinematographer, Michael Ballhaus, gets into the spirit so completely he always seems to light with shadows. It was an unusual story-telling aid at the time, but it replicated Stoker’s novel, like a series of journal entries.Take a trip back to the Academy Awards ceremonies of the recent past with Gold Derby’s Oscars Playback series. Tod Browning’s famous 1931 film starring Bela Lugosi wasn’t recognized come Oscar time; the same goes for films like “Horror of Dracula” from 1958 starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, and “Dracula” from 1979 starring Frank Langella and Laurence Olivier. Meanwhile, Mina’s journey finds her developing many of the same erotic tendencies as Lucy under Dracula’s tutelage, the ramp up in her seductiveness once again mirrored in the costumes that she wears. Despite the fact that the now-renowned actor was far from enamoured by the idea of playing Dracula, like anyone at the time - not least a Brit trying to make his way in Hollywood - the mere opportunity to be in Francis Ford Coppola film, let alone star in it, was more than enough reason to commit his heart and soul.

It's comfortably one of the best vampiric interpretations out there, and a classic love story at that, and though it is a shame that it is frequently ridiculed for some undeniably poor casting and accent decisions, once you've seen Oldman's Count 'Vlad The Impaler' Dracula, you're unlikely to ever forget him or the film. Silent movies, shadow puppets, back projection, forced perspective, models, make-up, technicolor, cross-fades - it's so very dense with sheer craft.Netflix releases riveting ‘Society of the Snow’ behind-the-scenes documentary ‘Who Were We on the Mountain?

One of the most high-profile releases in the fall of 1992 was Francis Ford Coppola’s adaptation of “Dracula,” starring Gary Oldman, Anthony Hopkins, Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves. Winona Ryder in the following two years received Academy Award noms for “The Age of Innocence” and “Little Women.Dialogue remains clear and coherent, and well prioritised, and that score, that score haunts the proceedings, with plenty of literal thunder to engage the LFE. And Bram Stoker’s Dracula uses the resemblance between Mina and Elisabeta to position Dracula as a tragic hero in the Byronic mold. Lavish and luxurious, Coppola's magnificent ode to Bram Stoker's epistolary novel is the auteur's last great feature, a flawed but fabulous fable that puts the heart back into this ancient icon, giving audiences a reason to actually care about the fact that everybody seems to want to shove a stake in it.

While I missed out on seeing it in theaters, my Dad held up his end of the bargain and rented it for me on tape when it was available at our local Video Watch. The sound design may not be wall-to-wall explosions and action, but there is a terrific amount of ambient and pinpoint effects to enjoy. And in the decade after, although commercial success would continue to elude him, it's the lack of critical acclaim that would be more worrying, turning in an underrated classic in Rumble Fish, but otherwise coasting through a sea of messy productions until Paramount bailed him out with an offer he couldn't refuse - to make the third Godfather film he previously had no intentions on making.Of the three, I definitely stand behind Atmos, but the other two are terrific options depending on your setup. But to sweeten the deal for this release, Sony has gone and added excellent legacy audio tracks to this disc.
