Fourscore and... seven minutes ago... we, your forefathers, were brought forth upon a most excellent adventure conceived by our new friends, Bill... and Ted. These two great gentlemen are dedicated to a proposition which was true in my time, just as it's true today. Be excellent to each other. And... PARTY ON, DUDES!

One of the best quotes from the book ( Abe is talking to a vampire ) ;

“Judge us not equally, Abraham. We may all deserve hell, but some of us deserve it sooner than others”

Probably one of the best historical fiction/fantasy books ever written. If done right the movie can leave “Inglourious Basterds” in the dust. The end of the book was a disappointment, almost like a movie that just tied everything up in the end to be neat.

I remember really looking forward to ‘Cowboys and Aliens’.
..Same absurdity level as this one.
Will this one be as bad?

Yes it is.

He also wrote “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” which I’m sure Jane Austen would have wrote if she thought about them.

Up next, Sherlock Holmes, Lycanthropic Investigator!

After being contracted to investigate mysterious happenings attributed to a ghostly hound at the Baskerville estate, Holmes is bitten during a confrontation with the fiendish beast. After continuing with the case, and tying up all the loose ends (or so he thought), Holmes takes a well-deserved respite at his brother Mycroft’s country estate. Before the month is out, his peaceful repose is interrupted by a series of mysterious slayings strangely reminiscent of the murders in the Baskerville case. While Holmes fears that the real killer may have eluded his grasp and now mocks him with these crimes, the truth is even more shocking than the great detective could imagine: Holmes, infected with the virus of lycanthropy by the hound-bite, has begun to stalk the countryside under the light of the full moon. Can the resourceful Sherlock outwit his most cunning adversary.... himself?

I settled the argument on which is better, vampires or werewolves. It's werewolves. They say werewolves can't change at will but all the have to do is to hire someone to drop their pants. Automatic full moon. They can also lick themselves.

Well, it is a Tim Burton film...so it will be elaborate, dark, well crafted, and great on some level!

Sorry. You're right.

I was thinking of the original. I didn't see the remake.

The movie is actually highly anticipated. The premise is that Lincolns mother was killed by a vampire and that every action Lincoln takes in his life is to destroy vampires. The Democrats - southern slave owners are all vampires and he makes war on them and destroys them. One almost wishes it had happened, but alas, we still have democrats.

And the Republicans are still trying to end the scourge of socialist vampires sucking the life out of the body politic.

Most importantly, it will show how Sarah Palin would react in the event of a Nazi invasion launched from the moon.

Personally, I can’t say I’d vote for her until I know her stance on this eventuality.

Plus, werewolves can still eat pizza and italian food. They never mention that you are going to have to give that up when they try to sell you on how great it is to become a vampire!

I liked the book. It was dark and surprisingly thoughtful, with an interesting take on a variety of historical characters. However, I don’t enjoy gore in movies, so if anyone sees this, it will be my teenagers.

There aren't that many movies these days where I see the trailer and think I have to see it in the theater opening weekend.

This may in fact be one of those movies.

The premise is so bizarre, and yet it looks like they are treating it seriously.

There will be no middle ground for people who see this - they'll either like it or hate it.

The Temeraire books are like that too..Naploeonic war tactics with world war 1 type aerial fighting done on dragons. Extremely well thought out.

Tom has some of those. They’re very well done. I read some sections when we were trying to get an “Oral Interpretation” piece out of one, but the premise is so unusual that we couldn’t put together a 10-minute segment that wouldn’t completely befuddle a random listener.

What?

What is this? How can we be so judgemental of the poor, misunderstood vampire? Why, I just read this interview with a German vampire in the fine English press just tonight. The sheer number of problems they have to overcome on a daily basis is enough to make a brave man weep!

"I haff been un professional vampire for more than three centuries, and I haff seen many changes. Life ist not so gute for the vampire anymore. Just this morning I had to go to der supermarket. Vat vould der vampire need to go to der supermarket for, I hear you ask! Vhy, do you think mein cat ist der vampire also? Nein, Tiddles ist just der normal pussycat, und I need to buy catfood and milk and kitty litter. So off to Tesco I go - I haff to use der bus. In der old days, I could just change into der fleidermaus, but nowadays ze skies, zey are so crowded! Zey ist full of der luftcraft and I vould be splattered livink vhere I do in der flightpath of Heathrow. I cannot even get der driving permit, vat vould zey say in der driving school vhen zey look at mein provisional license und see zat I vas born in 1678? Zey vould say, hang on, zis guy ist der vampire! Stake him! So by bus I must travel, and the bloody price! I cannot get der OAP discount card for der same reason as I cannot get der driving licence. It costs me £2.50 just to get to bloody Tesco! It ist disgusting vhen von hass been paying der taxes for three hundred jahre! And zen, vhen I get to der supermarket, I cannot even enter becoss just as I do not show up in der mirror, I do not show to der infra-red camera thingy vat opens der automatic door. I haff to vait until someone else goes in und zen sneak in behind dem! Und vat do I see, right by the doors as I go in? The vegetable section...vith rows und rows und shelves und shelves full of garlic! Der garlic brings me out in hives und I sneeze everyvhere! Zen der mirrors everyvhere on der valls - people notice dat I haff no reflection and zey know I ist der vampire, so they start throwing der garlic at me! It ist embarrassing for a senior citizen such as myself!"

"And werewolves can still drink wine."

I have it on good authority that they prefer piña coladas from Trader Vic's.
