Vampire Mentions - Plenty of David Boreanaz

With the release of the new teen vampire flick, Twilight, vampires are on everyone's mind. Here is a list of a few of the vampire mentions, that include nice nods to David Boreanaz and Angel.

David Boreanaz made vampires heavenly as Angel in 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' during the 1990s.

Angel from TV's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997-2003) and "Angel" (1999-2004). A soulful, sexy and brooding bloodsucker, played by David Boreanaz. He loved and bewitched Buffy and later took off to L.A. to redeem himself and rid the city of evil.

Boston Herald

Angel (David Boreanaz), “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”: He went to hell and back (literally) for his beloved Buffy - what’s not to love?


Our vampire is cooler than your vampire because… can anyone do the brooding, soulful vampire better than David Boreanaz? We think not.

Omaha World-Herald

1997: David Boreanaz. No, he wasn't in the 1992 movie bomb "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." But as Angel in Joss Whedon's 1997-2003 hit TV series, he brought sexy back to fangdom.

And don't forget this poll I told you about a few weeks ago. David Boreanaz is on top, but the True Blood fans are steadily closing the gap!

I like Twilight, but is in no way as amazing as Buffy or Angel: the vampires don't have fangs! How can you have a vampire without fangs - it's outrageous! And they glitter like disco balls in the sunlight-wtf! AND they can't be killed unless they are ripped to pieces and burnedby another vamp, at least the Buffyverse vamps have physical vulnerability as well!

I also preferred Joss Whedon's underlying metaphors etc.. in both shows. Bella in Twilight seemed a bit superficial to me - she didn't seem to understand the implicatiosn of living forever as opposed to Angel whose ultimate desire is to be human, inluding the mortality part!

I saw the cinemablend one yesterday and I have to agree - Angel tops Edward anyday. Angel had the dark, brooding, mysteriousness pegged. Unlike Edward, he has a lot of emotional baggage to deal with and is a flawed hero - who doesn't love a flawed hero! It's what makes him so damn heroic!

Sorry - kind of turned into a rant. I loved the Twilight books but in hindsight, there's a lot I don't like about them!

I really enjoyed the Twilight books even though the vampire info went totally against what I'm used to (HELLO ANGEL!!). And the movie was a joke. Seriously. LOL

Shep said...

The vampire info just really annoyed me. The movie isn't out in the UK yet - how bad was it?

nini said... was BAD. I was so looking forward to it. And I'm sorry, maybe you will see it and love it. I didn't though. To me at least, it was like they TRIED really really hard to make a parody of the book. LOL

When does it come out in the UK?

Shep said...

It's out here on 12th December. I know it has received mixed reviews so far but I doubt I'll like it - I already have so many critcisms of the book.

And Robert Pattinson is NOT hot!

But meh..I'll wait and see the film before I make my final judgement!

Phoenix said...

As a gay guy who's in love with David, just wanted to drop in and say that he got and "Angel" co-star James Marsters got shout outs on the list of ten of TV/Movies sexiest vampires ever on

And I'm going to see the Twilight movie tonight, even though most of the reviews I've seen so far attest that it does, indeed, suck. I don't think Rob Pattinson is sexy at all. He's kind of cute. That's about as far as that one goes. He DOES have a really good singing voice, though; his song "Never Think" on the Twilight soundtrack is worth a listen!

Shep was dead-on with his comments on comparing Buffyverse vamps with Twilight vamps -- Buffy was SO much better, but I'm still a Twilight fan.

Do you have a link, Phoenix? I tried searching the site but couldn't find the right page. Give it to me, and I'll add it to the post :)

Shep said...

'Shep was dead-on with his comments'

Erm, I really don't mean to be rude or anything but I am a 'she' not a 'he' Phoenix. (no matter how many dogs have also had the same name. My nickname was given to me by a very dear friend - very long story!)

It's unbelievable how many times we've discussed David's hotness here, but with good reason - he is THE hottest vampire, hottest FBI agent and probably the hottest male star.

Ah crap! I seem to have gone all fangirly now.

Phoenix said...

Oh, crap -- I'm REALLY sorry, Shep! I actually have this professor (guy) right now whose name is Mr. Shepherd, and I just associated and there was badness... SORRY!

Shep said...

LOL! It's ok Phoenix. It did make me laugh.

I was looking for a name to post as and this was the shortest one I had so it kinda stuck. Can't go back now. I blame my friend.

Angel wins no matter what! im sorry but i love stephenie meyers writing but seriously the crap she comes up with about vamps...seriously!! by far, out of all the different "types" of vampires that writers, film makers and all them people have come up with, Joss Whedon vamp style is my favourite. Btw Angel totally owns Spike's ass, despite the fact i love Spike, but Angel is the original vampire with a soul...and he didnt get his soul just so he could get into buffy's pants as Angel so kindly puts it in season 5 (of angel). Angel is the best vampire of all time!! and i love his broodiness :D

I liked of Twilight saga, but now I see none and nothing can beats Buffy and Angel, they have an immortal love, David Boreanaz came to show for the world that a vampire don't need be pale or cold! He is awesome, you know, I like pretty much of True Blood, in my opinion is the sex vampire version of Buffy and Angel, but it is different than the others and I respect this! But this Twilight thing about shine in contact with the sun it's too sissy, Edward is sissy, he is more a sentimental FAIRY. Nobody can wins Buffy and Angel, they are amazing. Edward next to Angel seems like a little baby boy (or girl!!!). ANGEL IS THE MORE HOTTEST VAMPIRE! ANGEL/ANGELUS/BUFFY TEAM!
