I’m really drooling every day of it. Every poster and updates that Marvel posts on their facebook page really excites me a lot. Like the latest Ben Kingsley poster just really shows all the badass in him.
Well though Mandarin is an asian character and he is already look like an American but Ben Kingsley has some Indian blood in him, technically he is asian.
Our culture is filled with mystical beliefs and of course creatures. Aswang a famous creature from our culture, some say it’s true, some say it’s just a myth but the one fact that these aswangs live is through the constant reminder of our creative mind, remembering and talking about it. One of the ways these aswangs live is through the different movie made for them.
Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang is definitely a world class Filipino Movie. Though there are small flaws in some parts of the movie with regards of acting, the story itself is the selling point. Especially with Corazon, when she transformed into a psychotic mother who lost her child, I am sold with the make-up and the choreography of her taunts. It’s not so Japanese, it’s not so Thai kind of horror movie, we are just fed up with the looks of other horror movie abroad but it’s all Pinoy.
This is a very good year for the movie industry, just like I said more and more Filipinos go to the theatres to watch Pinoy movies. Especially in comedy, love stories (of course) and horror, we really do have an edge with other movie outfit. Filipinos can now choose from bad to good movie so you can’t fool them now.
Surely God would not have created such a being as man, with an ability to grasp the infinite, to exist only for a day! No, no, man was made for immortality. ~ Abraham Lincoln
Sure I can’t recall hearing this in the movie but I am sure he stated that well on the last scene when Henry wants him to be a vampire, Lincoln said “Not only vampires are immortal.”
The movie is about a fictional life even t of Abraham Lincoln. The title is very self explanatory that is said that Abraham Lincoln was a vampire hunter. Fighting side by side with a vampire ally Abe fights for freedom until his last stand with the leader of the vampire during war.
It is really a fantastic movie and the fight sequence is at least thrilling and exciting at the same time. The vampire make up are as usual as the standard vampire look as it is but I think the director is not focused on what will be the vampire look, they would be killed in the end anyway, but its role in the environment and society when Abe is fighting for freedom.
Snapshots from history that would link to Lincoln’s fight for freedom and fight for those blood thirsty beings. Written by Seth Grahame-Smith and directed by Timur Bekmambetov I gave Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter 7 stars. It is not as boring as it may seem and it really ends very majestic.
History prefers legends to men. It prefers nobility to brutality, soaring speeches to quiet deeds. History remembers the battle, but forgets the blood. However history remembers me before I was a President, it shall only remember a fraction of the truth… ~ Abraham Lincoln in Abrahama Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
