Van Helsing No D

Somebody's Always Gotta Stick In the Mud

Well, you couldn't have NeverNever without any trolls, could you? ;P Fortunately, except for the one guy, response to the return of NeverNever has been overwhelmingly positive. :)

I spent today the way most other people spend a normal weekend day -- i.e., I went shopping and saw a movie.

What movie did I see? Van Helsing, of course! And what did I buy while I was shopping? This!

What can I say? I'm a Universal Monsters fan. ;)

Van Helsing held up quite well to a second viewing; I honestly don't get why so many people love, say, Pirates of the Caribbean, yet lots of people are so ready to trash Van Helsing. They're both good in the same way ... so I love 'em both! PotC does have fewer fatal flaws, but VH has Castle Frankenstein! And Hugh Jackman.

In other words, I spent Memorial Day savoring my freedom. :) Seems a good way to do it.

Thanks all, and good night. :)
