"Once you've seen one scene of Lincoln excessively cool kung-fu axe fighting, you've seen them all"- I want to see this movie now based entirely on that quote.
The best part is that I went and saw Brave, and that has LITERALLY NOTHING TO DO with the movie. At no point were the sentiments "Girls can't do that!" ever brought up. So your angry critique is worthless. Maybe you should go see movies before commenting on the storyline you perceived from a thirty second commercial and a couple wild assumptions.Dragonforce525 said:Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Killer>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Brave
I do not need to see another movie with the central premise being "Girls can do anything boys can do!", it's been done to death and I hope Brave bombs hard and this storyline never sees the light of day again.
Henry the VIII, Wolfman is the released version/tehroc said:Perhaps there will be a sequel. Theodore Roosevelt: Werewolf Hunter, a biopic of course.
This is really just a test of sorts, War of Independence?ReiverCorrupter said:This is not to say that I want to completely demonize him either; I just want history to be an objective reflection upon past states of affairs, and not a fairy tale that is blatantly used as propaganda to promote mindless nationalism. Guess I've got high hopes.
Saying Abe was even more than what he was already, many consider him our greatest president ever. I don't find trivializing, I find it was adding more myth to the man, granted it's a myth no one will believe but it's fun.surg3n said:What is it with Americans trivializing historic figures...
Abe Lincoln was a vampire hunter.
Einstein was a party animal.
Sherlock Holmes was a douchebag genius fighter.
Considering it was a book first you probably shouldn't place the blame solely on Hollywood. Also you do understand what satire is right?Ryan Spellman said:Why is it okay for Hollywood to MOLEST our nation's history. Am I the only one who realizes this?
The same thing happened in my theater and I'm in the US.YodaUnleashed said:When the trailer for this showed in the cinema and the titles came up at the end "Abraham Lincoln.......Vampire Hunter", no lie, everyone in the cinema laughed in derison. Then again this is England and such ridiculousness would be fine in a Monty Python sketch but not in a serious fully-fledged movie. I suppose it could be fun to watch and laugh at.
