I’m a little late today, aren’t I?  I’ve been so good up til this point of watching my movies and scheduling my posts at least a day in advance, but time finally caught up with me.  But I do not concede defeat yet!

A friend of mine warned me that Van Helsing is a terrible movie, so I did not go in with big expectations.  It’s probably a good thing.  I went in prepared to make fun of it, which actually helped me to enjoy it.  It’s a typical vampire/werewolf movie.  Take from that what you will.  There’s not much more to say, because there really isn’t anything else to it.  It’s the type of movie I wouldn’t be opposed to watching again if there’s nothing else on tv, but I most likely will not seek it out.
