I have *ZERO* intention of paying money to see Abe Lincoln kill vampires in an over-serious action film. Much like I didn't spend any money to see Edgar Allen Poe solve murders earlier this year. And I won't watch Isaac Newton beat up criminals in an action film either, (sigh) which is actually going to happen (http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118055203).


But I did get some enjoyment out of this Lincoln video game someone made on YouTube:

Two words: Caleb Deschanel. Spectacular work from 5-time Oscar nominee, one of the true lions of cinematography.

A little red band love for your Friday morning:




My favorite of Caleb's will probably always be The Black Stallion (1979). Phenomenal work from director Carroll Ballard, especially for the vast stretches of the movie with no dialog - just a boy, a horse, Carmine Coppola's Oscar-nominated score....and amazing, amazing pictures. This was Caleb's second feature.

Hey, and thank goodness for a little YouTube misappropriation now and again. Watching the whole 7 minutes will give you a sense of the power of these silent stretches, but if you need to skip ahead, start at the the 3 minute mark.

I am looking forward to the following movies due in 2014:

George H.W. Bush: Werewolf Slayer

President Clinton and Mr. Hyde

Lyndon Johnson: Pharmaceutical Representative

Grover Cleveland: Barista

George Washington: Postal Clerk

and the future #1 box office sensation...

Gerald Ford: Typist

Notice how mundane the secret jobs of some of the US Presidents were. It's not all supernatural crime fighting. You think lattes and mimeograph forms grow on trees? These are important matters of national security.

As for Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, this looks fun but not $8.50 fun - might be worthy of Redbox for $1.30, but it will be a frequent entry on TBS about 2 years from now.

Ah Ha, it was Mr. Hyde who got him in trouble :-)

Ok just watched this on dvd. Not bad at all. I like how they took Will and Speed and gave them larger roles than history suggests.
Good action. Train sequence was exciting.
They could have spent a bit more on some of the hero composite shots.
I like how Mary Todd Lincoln does not age while her husband grows older.

Just announced : William Howard Taft: Shoe Shine Boy. In 4k 3D.

Happy Days
