I have read the books. I love Richelle Mead's books-and when I say this, I mean it. I have read every one of her books I STILL can't believe Georgina Kincaid doesn't have her own show yet! . However, placing my love for her as an author aside, I went to see the movie with the notion that it would be terrible and cheesy you saw the main trailer right?! . It was nothing like what was in the trailer. It was snarky, spunky and over all a good film.HOWEVER- I'm sure you've read otherwise. I've seen the critic's reviews. I've read about how terrible very few <more>
people thought it was. Let me explain it a little. They have NO idea what they're talking about! okay, that's my opinion and I don't mean to invalidate any one else's but c'mon, it's awesome! As far as visual affects go, it's about as bad as any lower budget film. Seriously does anyone REMEMBER the first Harry Potter? Look at the last one-total difference. Budgeting can change a film completely. Which is Exactly what we will see happen when this series really takes off. If you haven't read the books, I strongly recommend talking to someone who has, they can explain things you may have missed or don't quite understand. I don't think that is a flaw in the movie either. We see films that aren't adaptations from novels and miss things, or don't have any clue what really happened until we watch it again maybe twice? . Who hasn't watch a film again and said 'OH! I get it now'. To wrap this up I'd like to say that this movie is done really well.NO it does not EXACTLY follow every sentence in the book, but they've summarized and portrayed elements that were probably really difficult to write/act/direct. I also take comfort in the fact that the next books just get better! And I imagine that over time, the movies will get larger and larger budgets, and will get new writers and more production staff in addition to the current ones, not replacing in order to create the world in it's entirety for the movie audiences. It was a great film- don't knock it till you try it, at least that's what momma says ;
Vampire Academy is too good to not get a sequel. (by AnzRoxx)
Vampire Academy is finally the YA adaptation we've all been waiting for. After disappointment after disappointment in the category, Vampire Academy finally did it all right. Not only is Vampire Academy a faithful adaptation to the book and should have all fans captivated, it is also a great flick for non book fans of all ages. Action, humor, and an incredibly portrayed friendship. Everyone in the theater laughed. The ladies behind me swooned for a certain Russian lead. People were on the verge of tears, I'm sure someone let a few slip. It was enjoyable for all people in the room. What <more>
I always praised about Richelle Mead's series was the focus on friendship as opposed to romance and the comedy. This movie does all that perfectly director of Mean Girls, hello. while still portraying the dark content from the books writer of Heathers, hello. I will say there were some pacing issues and sometimes the transitioning to a new scene was off, but that is the ONLY thing and quite honestly it didn't bother me too much or take away from me enjoying the film, so it was not that big of an issue. Was this a perfect adaptation of a great book? No, but does a thing exist? This was a very faithful adaptation, however, and as a book fan I can honestly say I couldn't imagine the movie going any other way. So, I'm here to tell you this adaptation is TOO GOOD to not get a sequel.
there have been many tries in trying to find the next huge hit ya adaptation and while i think this film wont make 100s of millions of dollars it will and should be a hit. whatever you think you may know about this film throw it out the window and go see this movie you will be pleasantly surprised.fans of the books will be in so much awe the things that they might have cut from the film you wont even notice unless you really analyze it awhile after you see it. you get to see how the characters changed over time in a way sort of like mean girls where Cady goes on this journey to discover <more>
herself only that now the stakes are higher no pun intended . i hope they make a sequel because i'm tired of Hollywood letting me get into a movie and then not continue it. fans of the books go see it if you want to see Adrian. non fans of the books go see it to have a good time
Exposition from a VA Series Reader whose not a YA (by lori-918-6014)
I have read all of the VA series and enjoyed them immensely, mainly because of Rose. Rose Hathaway is feisty, determined, funny, and flawed, and it was always fun to see what she would do next and how that would land her in trouble. This story is not your "typical vampire" story. Everyone in the story already knows about vampires and the makeup of the society they live in. Nor is it a damsel in distress story. Rose already possesses strength and determination, although she does have impulse control issues. She is best friends with the vampire princess, Lissa Dragomir who is the last <more>
of her line, and extremely loyal and protective of her.The movie and books have been compared to many other YA/vampire genre, but the story does not follow Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey outline. Both Star Wars and Harry Potter did excellent jobs capturing the hero's journey, and the Twilight series followed Carl Jung's development of the soul and the anima/animus well. Mead does not use either of these outlines/archetypes in her books, and her storytelling provides a freshness, as well as giving a portrayal of strong women who look out for each other.Perhaps, the story could be compared to "Thelma and Louise" navigate a dysfunctional high school that just happens to have vampires and magic.Now for the movie itself: the tone and pacing of the movie are very much Rose and are true to the tone and pacing of the books. I actually liked the new scenes that were added to the movie – they did not distract in ways that other book-to-movies have done, but actually enhanced the story. I think the movie represented all the dynamics of the various relationships well, although I do wish the Rose/Dimitri relationship had been better developed. There wasn't the tension between them that there was in the books. And although I wish I could have forgotten the story and the previews during the movie so that I could have enjoyed the movie without all that knowledge, I did find myself getting lost in the movie.Of all the first time movies of various popular YA book-to-movie adaptations that I have read and seen, I think this movie was one of the better ones that has been done.
Vampire Academy. It's not the best adoption but its mostly true to the book. A few of my favorite scenes were not in it but it's an adaption so I understand the changes. The beginning felt a little rush compared to reading the book but it stuck true to the book! But the middle and end did it sweet justice. The fighting scenes were bad ass and the elemental magic...sweet. There was a lot of humor and changes to the time line but I liked it. I yelled at the screen a lot though, as an avid book fanatic and a college student for film directing and screen writing. All over though, I love <more>
the movie as much as the book!! And it is my favorite book series of all time ; . It is NOT like Twilight--we do not have teams and our vampires do not sparkle. The Strigoi are the most typical vampire stereotypes, the Moroi feed off of blood but are mortal, and the Dhampir is a half Moroi, half human. The Dhampir's do not feed off blood. The characters in the movie were so much like the character in the book and the fans will be happy with the cast and the movie! : Even if you are not a fan of vampires, give it a shot! It might surprise you. I highly recommend seeing the movie. It has something for everyone and if you don't like it well that's on you. You never know until you give something a shot so why not give this movie a chance?
I am not a YA but I really enjoyed these books. It was really fun seeing the book come to life on screen. I did have things about the movie I did not enjoy. My main issue was how rushed it felt, I really think an extra 15 minutes to give a little more time for scenes to play out and relationships to be understood would have been good. If you haven't watched, STOP READING. There are SPOILERS from here on out. I think that the way they showed the compulsion was a little cheesy and they could have pulled it off better. I also wish Mia's character wasn't so blatantly desperate to <more>
popular. I think the best example is the dance scene when she comes up to Lissa and her hissy fang fit bugged me. Overall though, I enjoyed the movie and hope they make Frostbite.
A Entertaining Movie with Spunk and Blood (by re-munoz94)
I too walked into the movie thinking it was some sort of twilight based movie. However, I enjoyed the overall film for its outlandish humor and lead actress. Some parts where a bit shocking but nothing too far from crossing over a certain line. I have never read a single book of this series; although the movie does a wonderful job explain exactly what is going on and who everyone is. Vampire academy from times gave us teen angst and did over sexual most of its cast in some scenes. So if they are planning a sequel please don't shove sex right in our faces. It thought it was a movie that <more>
had potential to be a bit darker than just being only surrounded by high school problems. But the whimsically teen side didn't keep this movie from the mild gore. I would rate this movie an 7/10. Would I watch if there was a sequel? The answer is yes because this first movie attempt wasn't as big of a letdown as I had anticipated. The next movies if any have the possibility to break away from the usual "Teen Drama" and not hold back on the blood and guts. If this franchise doesn't want to be compared to twilight I suggest you not make it the usual storyline. Girl and two guys, the two guys want her, she is mortal and they are supernatural, not blood all glitter. So overall this movie had wit, spunky humor, mild gore, provocative scenes, high school drama, and fangs. An overall good recipe so far for the freshman vampire movie, word to the wise for the sequels if any, just step it up and leave us wanting more.
I had a lot of fun watching this movie, and even though it wasn't as much as I hoped, it was good enough. This movie is one that you're not supposed to take seriously, just the way the movie doesn't take itself. I was very surprised and amazed by Zoe Deutch, she was great and added an extra excitement to the movie. And even though the story was sometimes hard to understand because I haven't read the books and everything was half explained very quickly, it also it had a lot of clichés. It still was entertaining with its tongue- n-cheek dialogue, its characters and the pop <more>
culture references. And although it wasn't in the level of Mean Girls- because they share the same director- it still managed to look good but it had some issues with the editing and quality of some scenes. This movie wasn't near perfection, but it wasn't about that. Hopefully they'll make a sequel, because even though the endings wasn't as exciting to set the excitement or expectations. I still want to know more about the characters and just be around them, because they have that touch of fresh air and charisma that many other characters in other teenage movies lack. Just remember that you don't have to take it seriously and just go with it, because in the end it's all about having fun and enjoying.
The movie was very fast pasted. It would jump from issue to issue, without any break.There were several parts that did not match the book. There are extra Strogi scene's, and Kirova. Speaking of Kirova, I hated the way she was portrayed. She was a model want to be she said that herself that drank a lot of martini's. She was causing extra drama in Rose's life, like working with Mia. Also the cutting of Lissa is not how I imagined it, it appeared there, I always thought she actually did it did it to herself. The shadow kiss part they learn about much earlier, they find out more in <more>
another book about it.The major parts, and lines were there. "If I let myself love you I wont throw myself in front of Lissa, I will throw myself in front of you." ...and othersAlso the bird scene, the one Lissa saved, and Rose wanted it to come on her shoulder in a dramatic gesture. Yeah that scene is in there.The lust scene... It was good they had it. BUT didn't actually have sex. They should have but they did not. -_-Overall it was a pretty good movie.
