The Steampunk Empire

The Crossroads of the Aether

I went and saw the movie over the week end and would definitely recommend it for anyone that has NOT read the book. There is a severe deviation from the novel on many parts. I had to go in with no expectations having read it beforehand.

The movie effect and action were great and suspenseful. The story was kinda rushed in parts but not hard to keep up with.

---Spoiler alert--- The north wins the war.

Bonjour! Dirk Blackworm...

Merci, for sharing one Of a hand-full Of reviews that I have been reading since the film was released on Friday...Unfortunately, I have not read author Seth-Graham-Smith's book "Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, "

but I have been covering the film from the release Of the book trailer to the release Of the film.

Only because Of a group that I belong to here at The Steam-punk Empire that focus on Steam-punk and vampirism (Sp) or vice-versa...mlle.deedee gauzot  :-D

I enjoy reading and watching vampire stories. I appreciate your interest in my review.

Merci, mlle.deedee gauzot.

Bonjour! Dirk Blackworm...

I saw the movie on Friday. If only our History classes in school would subscribe,  more students would find history more interesting. I highly recommend the movie too. I hope this is not a spoiler BUT Abe was bad a** with that ax!!!!!  =)

Bonjour! Mlle. Suzette Cherie...

Here goes two articles that "touched" on what you mentioned in your comment... History classes [The second article] and the way Abe Lincoln swing an ax...[The first article] lol

Here goes a review an[d] article for...Abe Lincoln: The Vampire Slayer... is just the beginning by John Timpane is The Inquirer's media writer/editor

That Abe Lincoln is a bad dude and no mistake.

 Saw Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter last week, in 3D no less, and it's pretty good!

People are surprised, but why? Abe always gets voted No. 1 All-Time Prez. Everybody sees him as this hick dweeb loser who makes himself into a god. It's a heart-warmer, equal parts Huck Finn, Revenge of the Nerds, and Patton. This flick just cements the rep.

And can that man sling an ax! The axeman ship alone is worth the ducat.

The Vampire Librarian...also posted a very interesting article about..."Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter..." Here:

Grahame-Smith’s Vampire Tale Spawns Plenty of Comment...

"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" has been in development limbo for a few years now. A number of people have come in on the project and then gone away. One would have hoped that "Abraham Lincoln" might give it a boost but Abe only did about $16 million on opening weekend so I wouldn't expect to see PP&Z any time soon.

I saw Abe on Friday. I'll be blogging about it soon but just a quick preview of part of the experience. . . I went to the theater dressed in my Union Cavalry uniform and while waiting for the rest of the steampunks to arrive another group came to see "Brave" dressed in kilts and tartans. I went up to shake hands, saying "It's great to see other people that dress up to go to the movies." "Well, we do traditional Scottish dance, so it's easy." " And I hunt vampires on weekends so it's easy for me, too."

By the way, "Brave" pulled in $66 million opening weekend, which was about what it took to make AL:VH.

Bonjour! Zebulon Vitruvius Pike...

I discussed "Brave" intake at the box-Office as oppose to "Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter..."[including other films that opened that day.]

Here under the group: The Vampire Nation...

I'll be blogging about it soon but just a quick preview of part of the experience.

Great!...I will keep an "eye out" for your review...Speaking Of, eye...

And I hunt vampires on weekends so it's easy for me, too."

Is this a joke? If not, keep an "eye" on Zebulon Vitruvius Pike...Because if you're "hunting" vampires you are hunting...as I raise my right eye-brow.. [Just kidding!] LOL

Vampires keeping 4 million people enslaved as cattle? I would definitely be counted with the hunters on that.

Bonjour! Zebulon Vitruvius Pike...

Oh! You are referring to vampires in the film "Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter...?"[Which I Of course have not watched yet, with "yet" being the operative word...]

Zebulon Vitruvius Pike, I too believe in fighting against injustice(s) and I do have a "zero tolerance" level when it comes to people exhibiting any form Of prejudice (s) toward another human being... period !

However, I was just "kidding" around, [but  most importantly, I'm referring to modern day vampires or people who consider themselves modern day vampires and exhibit no intention Of harming another human being that I’m trying to protect against “vampire hunters.”

[Mainly, members, Of "The Vampire Nation" and a couple Of other people [Who consider themselves modern day vampires] that I know at two dark Gothic websites that I visit... too!]

However, I think the vampire hunters, today usually, have their tongue firmly planted in their cheek as they “pursue “vampires. [For instance, in role playing games, etc,etc, etc...]

merci, for responding to my comment... mlle.deedee gauzot :-D

Oops! I meant to type:

Is this a joke? If not, note to self: keep an "eye" on Zebulon Vitruvius Pike...Because if you're "hunting" vampires you are hunting...as I raise my right eye-brow.. [Just kidding] LOL

Bonjour! Zebulon Vitruvius Pike and Steam-punk members...

Here goes an interesting article: Vampire Hunter author reveals the true story behind the Lincoln boo...

merci, mlle.deedee gauzot :-D

"Modern day vampires" seem to come in two categories, those for whom "vampire" is a fashion statement or hobby and those who actually drink blood or believe that they leach nourishment from auras. The first are fanboys and fangirls akin to trekkies, furries, goths and steampunks and are as harmless as those subcultures. The second are psychologically disturbed and require professional attention.
