mellicious: pink manicure (m15m - deus-ex-machina)
[personal profile] mellicious
We watched Van Helsing on TNT tonight, and then watched part of it again. Well, I did, anyway. I kind of enjoyed it, in a weird way. It's a big old mostly-plotless mess, but it's got some really nice production design (fitfully, I admit) and some of the most god-awful CGI you can imagine, and some extremely pretty men, and Kate Beckinsale as a gypsy princess, of all things, and really beautiful Brides of Dracula who turn into harpies from time to time. Oh, yeah, and Frankenstein's monster thrown in just for fun. I never did understand the whole bit about Frankenstein and Dracula plotting for nefarious purposes, but I don't think it much mattered. There were villagers storming the castle, people! (And in black and white, no less.)

And also, one of my favorite icons turns out to be from this movie, and I didn't even remember that! (Which also probably means that[personal profile] cleolindadid a Movies in 15 Minutes for this one, which I really should go back to read now that I'll actually understand it.)
