Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012)

  Made a huge error in judgement by going to see this. Thought I could mine something of value out of it. I could not. Every chance to be clever or have fun was passed over. The tone should’ve been fun, but felt textbook serious. This alternate universe and it’s subjects could’ve been clever, but were dull and unimaginative. Other than a herd of creepy CGI horses (that I liked for the wrong reasons) and Jimmi Simpson (who I’ve always been strangely drawn to) who you should know as one of the McPoyle twins in It’s Always Sunny, there is nothing here worth writing about. Russian director Timur Bekmambetov caught us off guard with the fun that was Wanted after his divisive Night and then Day Watch vamp flicks. Don’t like to talk badly about movies, but this one just left me feeling empty and dulled. So many missed opportunities.

    Worst thing about this movie was that my wife liked it. She gets PO’ed if I tear apart movies she likes, and I don’t want to admit to seeing this to anyone else… so who can I complain about movie too?
