Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Blu-ray Review)

This past summer, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter came and went through theaters without much of an impact.  It was not really a colossal failure, but it also did not do much to win over fans of a genre mash-up.  I read the book based on recommendations and obvious intrigue, due to the fact that it’s […]

The wait is FINALLY over!  One of my favorite fictional books of 2010 has been adapted and now for very first time…officially presented on the big screen in eye-popping 3-D, if you so choose.  Hip, hip hooray!  Of course, I’m talking about none other than Seth Grahame-Smith’s mashup novel, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, a combination […]

‘Lincoln’ Lincoln, What You Thinkin’, Those Vampires Have Blood They’re Drinkin’

There is a certain level of expectancy when seeing a movie like this.  I was first made aware of this bizarre sounding mash-up idea a little over a year ago.  The film is based on a book by Seth Grahame-Smith (who also served as the film’s screenwriter), which became a bestseller.  I read the book […]

WonderCon 2012: 20th Century Fox – Prometheus and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

During the weekend of March 16-18, 2012, I was able to be a part of WonderCon 2012.  WonderCon is normally located up in San Francisco, but this year, due to renovations taking place at the Moscone Center, WonderCon was relocated to the Anaheim Convention Center.  2012 marks the 26th anniversary of WonderCon and to kick […]

Get It While It’s Hot! Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter – Official Trailer

I know it sounds strange, but as much as I write, I hardly ever read.  Reading to me is a luxury that is afforded by time, that which I have not much of.  Boo!  But it was almost two years ago when I came across a book title while glancing through an issue of Entertainment […]

‘The Darkest Hour’ Didn’t Quite Brighten My Day

About 45 minutes into this Russian-set alien invasion movie I realized that I had no idea what the names of the characters I had been following were.  That probably sums up the character work done in this film to keep you hoping for their survival, even though the leads are fairly likable.  I should also […]

‘Apollo 18’ Answers Questions About The Moon That No One Has Been Asking

Apollo 18 is the perfect example for how to market an empty paper bag.  It is not that I hated this film, it actually does a few things right, but I found that there was way more intrigue in the setup to this film before it even hit theaters, before actually seeing the final results.  […]

9 Sends Gregg Into Coma

French playwright Jean Giraudoux once said, “Only the mediocre are always at their best.”  And so is the case of Shane Acker’s new film, “9.”  I’m not going to give much away so don’t worry about spoilers.  However, once you’ve hit the 30-minute mark in the film, you pretty much get the idea of what […]

Brian Counts To 9!

I have to admit that my initial interest in 9 was based solely upon the first preview that was touted to me in the theater not so long ago.  The driving music, in the trailer, was the force that lit the wick on my inspirational candle, within my brain, to think that maybe this could […]
