Alright if you have been fallowing my Facebook exploits or noticing my random tweets then I am slowly beginning to bite the bullet and trying to get a podcast together. I think I have my co-host my friend Amber whom I have known since I was like 5 or 6. I think she will make a good partner in this endeavors because we argue like crazy lol. well I mean we agree on some things but we are different enough in what we geek out about that it could make for some interesting things to podcast about. Now the hang ups I am coming into are 1) A name and 2) subject matter, because as the Podcasting for dummies podcast and book say you should have 5 or so shows in the can just in case something happens and if your just starting out like me then its a great way to start off right(Tee Morris and Pip would be proud).
To mitigate the first problem of a name I have made a Poll on facebook HERE and would love for you all to go and vote because I am lazy and the poll does the counting of votes for me lol. Now subject matter I was thinking of all the nerdy things ya know anime, movies, comics, video games etc for review topics. Also some Author interviews weather they be Pro or self pub. Now myself I think of myself as some what of a writer and so does amber so potentially we could put out short stories or some of our fiction in the feed. I don’t know how people would like that but its just a possiblity, what do you guys think.
Now on to what everyone has been waiting on Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter….oh and by the way….
***SUPER DUPER MEGA ULTRA BEAR SPOILERS***
Alot people think this movie and book are just absurd, and they are SO wrong. This movie is like a silver ax pistol with a bayonet attachment to the face(which happens). I am going to talk about the vampire first and for most, they are what you would think vampires should be cold, calculating and snazzy dressers. Rufus Sewell pulls this off in spades let me tell you and his in movie Vampire sister enforcer played by Erin Wasson puts the sex in sexually charged sex appeal…oh god would I do horrible… well never mind that. In one of the great scenes of the movie she pins down Abraham(Benjamin Walker) with a chair and high heels…oh yeah
The action, and choreography of said action I loved it was washingtonian ax-fu, and did I mention the ax had a pistol built in? The one down fall for the combat in the film was it was alot of working in CG and I much prefer live stuntmen kicking the crap out of one another. All is forgiven when you fight a vampire in the middle of a giant stampede of horses thst involved a vampire going all British Bulldog on two horses by bulldog take downing them to trip up Lincoln’s horse. then chase one another across horse back by leap frogging them. sounds nuts? well that just the beginning because a horse is used as weapon. how do you ask the vampire throws it at Lincoln and hits him with it. all the while in the middle of a stampede.
Now to talk about some little tidbits that really were great touches. Lincoln was a giant of a man and they do a good job of portraying that with his awkward movements. Also a scene where he is riding a horse it looks as if his feet are going to drag on the ground. Another lovely touch is when they show you how the vampires can go out into the sun with a sign advertising what I call Steampunk Vampire sun screen which is mad from human blood among other things.
The vampires also have powers, invisibility, super speed, and super strength are what are shown in the movie. but the best to me is when they blend into ceiling paintings to ambush Lincoln and his free slave best friend and shop owner bud. I don’t know if this is a power or use of vamp hypnosis but it was Sweet.
To close out if an ax/pistol with a bayonet attachment, sexy vampire lady enforcers, vampire sun screen and living horse weapons arent enough to sell this move then the boobs, and bathtub sex should. This movie has Big Bears Approval from start to finish a definite MUST GO SEE. so until next time and don’t forget to vote for my podcast name thanks a head of time.
