Van Helsing

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by The Golden Boy, May 8, 2004.

  1. I saw that last nite. The CGI graphics were nice, but it really wasn't a good movie. You know, Parisian Gendarmes with German accents. Mr. Hyde was a CGI Andre The Giant. Huge Ackman turns into... get this... a werewolf who's claws go "snikt." Wait for this one folks. I should have seen the Mary Kate and Ashley movie instead.
  2. lol...

    i was goin to watch van helsing, still might though... iono why, probably cuz all the other movies right now at the thearters blow
  3. I saw it last night, i thought it was cheesy...but still entertaining. What can you expect when they are mixing stories of all the great horrors? I got the Andre the Giant vibe form Hyde too.
    The werewolf cg looked awsome!
    I thought it was fun though cause i kept my expectaions low. It wasnt the worst movie i seen for 7$

    P.s. Vamp chicks were hot+1
  4. I forgot about the Peter Boyle Frankenstein monster too!

    The CG Werewolf/Dracula thing was cool, but it just went too fast. No drama in it, a lot of swirling visuals.
  5. well, i was just glad to see the frankenstein monster portrayed as mary shelly actually made him. i mean, come on, he's probably a great guy once you get to know him!

    the story was alright, i mean, it could have been worse, a lot worse.
    i still think 7.50 is a ripoff for movies. but thats another thread right? ;)

  6. I saw New York Minute, the Olsen twins movie. It was ok.
    But you get to see Ashley Olsen in the shower!! :-D

    Isn't Kate Beckinsale in Van Helsing? That right there is enough to make it worth seeing.

  8. Yes she is...plus 3 very howt vampire ladies :D
  9. $7, you say?
    I paid $14 because my friend wanted to watch it in the ArcLight cineramadome.

    It reminded me of a meal I had a little while ago with a bunch of friends at a tempura bar: It was good, but not $72 good.

    You're in college and you can afford $72 meals!? Or do you only eat twice a month?

    EDIT: forgot to put the word "eat" in there.
  11. Well, I have the privilege of having parents who can afford to send both my brother and I to university and also give us spending money.

    But after that meal, I was cooking and eating at home a lot to save money, because I really hate it when I have to ask my parents for more money.

    I refuse to see this movie on the grounds of excessive stupidity.

    I bet they also use the word dandruff alot. I just can't deal with that.

    Saw it last night...

    Not exactly Oscar winning material to say the least, but it was somewhat entertaining.

    The lead characters were a too bit superhuman for my taste, no real character development, lousy script.... But it was somewhat entertaining as I said.
  19. and her legs.. and her shoulders. That's enough to give you a boner right there!
