Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov reinvent the time-honored genre and present the terrifying creatures of the night as they were meant to be experienced — as fierce, visceral, intense and bloodthristy. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter brings to the screen the secret life of our nation’s favorite president…as history’s greatest hunter of the undead. — (C) Official Site

Scott’s Take

I’m seriously conflicted about Abe Lincoln hunting vampires. On one hand I think the movie looks beyond ridiculous.  On the other hand, this movie was made by Timur Bekmambetov who made one of my favorite movies in Wanted.  I remember seeing the trailer for Wanted and thinking it looked just as ridiculous as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.  I will cross my fingers.

Steve’s Take

I know a lot of people who are excited about this one. I’m open to seeing almost anything so I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing this one although I’m not a big vampire fan. Give it a shot and let me know if you think it is something for me!


Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late. — (C) Disney

Scott’s Take

Pixar doesn’t fail.  Bottom line!  There isn’t much else that needs to be discussed.  You will go see Brave, and you will undoubtedly like it.  Got it? Good!

Steve’s Take

Just like Scotty said, Pixar doesn’t miss. You can pretty much guarantee that you will enjoy a trip to the theaters if you are seeing a Pixar film and this one should be no different.

Next Week

These are the big films releasing this weekend.  Next weekend we have Mark Wahlberg talking to vulgar teddy bears in Ted and Channing Tatum getting naked to pay the bills in Magic Mike.  Have a great weekend everyone!
