Movie Review: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

abraham-lincoln-vampire-hunter-movie-poster-03Two things before I jump into this review:

1) I’ve read on the Internet and heard from friends of mine about how historically inaccurate the movie is. Folks, if you’re expecting historical accuracy from a movie titled ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER then you most certainly are watching the wrong movie. You need to be watching 1940’s “Abe Lincoln In Illinois” starring Raymond Massey as Abe Lincoln. Seriously. It’s an excellent movie that I’ve seen about two or three times now on Turner Classic Movies. It’s well worth your time.

2) People complaining that the movie wasn’t like the book. Sigh. Folks, haven’t we grown past that by now? True, I haven’t read the book but now, having seen the movie I plan to. But from what I know of the book the only way it could have been done justice was as a six hour miniseries on HBO and Showtime. Would that have been better than the 1hr. 45 minute movie we do have? I dunno. But I do think it worth pointing out that the same guy who wrote the book wrote the screenplay. I like to think he’s an intelligent enough writer to have realized that novels and theatrical movies are two different mediums and what works for one may not necessarily work for the other. Bottom line is all I know is that I enjoyed and respected ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER the movie for what I got out of it: It’s a superhero movie in historical/vampire/horror movie drag.

A second chance for ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’: Why fans should give the show another try

By Ashley Bergner
Box Office Buzz

SHIELD_blogMarvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” was one of the most anticipated new shows premiering last fall, a concept that appeared to be full of potential. However, after the first several episodes, many fans seemed to agree the show hadn’t quite lived up to the hopes they had for it. The characters weren’t quite clicking, the show struggled to find a tone and focus, and it didn’t seem to have the same magic spark as the Marvel movies. Ratings have continued to drop, and if the trend continues, a cancellation notice could be in the show’s future.

Which would be a shame, because “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” has shown real improvement in the second half of its first season. Show runners have been fixing many of the issues fans seemed to have with the series, and it’s now closer, I think, to the show fans were actually hoping to see when they tuned in last fall.

Geeky Trivia To-Go

QuizUp LogoIf I reference a word game in the mobile marketplace your mind probably goes to Words with Friends. The mentioning of “tower defense” as a game category might call up thoughts of Plants vs. Zombies. Need a puzzler? After all these years, your go-to is still Tetris. Now, what about Trivia? In the past, you might’ve said Jeopardy, but I’d argue that name recognition is more from the TV show than any game. I’ve played Jeopardy: The Game on my phone and it feels like a console game ported to the small screen–and, as usual, it isn’t the best experience. For the initiated, there is a new name in mobile apps that is becoming synonymous with trivia, and that is QuizUp.
