Movie Review: Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

Hello Gorgeous Reader!

 

Weird… to me that title is synonymous to “Santa Clause Lost Son of Adolf Hitler” or something… This concept seems like one of those that people get when they’re getting high with their friends.  (No Offense)

 

But seriously though, the concept is just a bad mash to me. For one thing, I’m not from America and I care less about whatever factual detail they’ve chosen to add vampirism into. Secondly, I’m still confused between the identities of Abraham Lincoln and Uncle Sam. So, for a non-American who just wants to see a good movie, I felt unsatisfied because it messed with my brain.

Ironically

The movie depicts “Abe Lincs” stand on racial discrimination ( between Caucasians and African-Americans). Yet it seemed to disregard the subliminal depiction of gender discrimination. You see, in the movie, if you were bitten by a vampire; you die of you’re “pure of heart” but you turn into a vampire if you’re not. Since there was only one lady vampire in the movie and most of those who died were women; Are you telling me that women are purer of heart than men?  I beg to disagree, because the woman who stepped on my feet like it was a rock is a total B*t@#. Just like the cashier who had no sense of empathy on the people waiting in line is a total B*t@#. Anyway, what I’m saying is that women are equally as evil as men. And that gender discrimination is equally as offensive as racial discrimination.

 

Some Originality?

The movie adopted the “slow and go” visual effects akin to that of the movies 300 and matrix. (which I admit was cool) The score is similar to that of Conception (where it’s like hearing a gong echoing in your ear). To add to the metaphor of a hurriedly done copied homework; you will notice an editing error. Notice that Abe’s face is a still mess while Henry shows him a slide show of Vampires. Yet the scene right before that he’d already healed his bruised face.

 

Well at the very least the actors did their part, given the very twisted storyline. It’s nice to see a new face, as the this movie could be the first leading role for the guy (who resembles Penn Badgely) who starred as Lincoln. The rest of the supporting cast however are familiar faces.

 

Favorite Line: (this isn’t verbatim)

Q: Why would you choose a guy with such a common face? A: Well, I think those with common faces are the best kind. That’s why God makes so many of them.

 

So on the rate of 1 to 5; five being the highest, I give this movie

a TWO, just wait for the DVD or HBO showing…

  8. You really make it seem really easy with your presentation however I to find this matter to be actually
    something which I feel I would by no means understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely extensive for me.
    I am having a look forward on your subsequent put up, I will try to get the hang of it!

My Speech as a Guest Speaker

Hello Gorgeous Reader!Last March 28, 2014 , I got the rare opportunity to give a speech at the graduation ceremony of my alma mater KM5 now named Fr. William F. Masterson S.J. elementary school.So a little back story. I gave a speech on my own graduation way back year 2000 and it was miserable. I was very sick that day, I even passed out at school before the program. I was there because I volunteered to help with the preparation stuff. During the program I was puking, the world was spinning and I felt so cold. They had me seated while I gave my speech and well, I cried. But I knew I had the best of friends then because my classmates cried with me. Although I know that some of my batch-mates are far more successful than I am and thus more credible to give a speech; I didn’t think twice and said ‘yes’ to my former teacher’s invite. After all, not everyone gets a shot at redemption. (shoutout: *Thank you very much Sir Janeo for the opportunity.*)Okay, so here’s the speech that I gave. It…

Pamamanhikan: A Filipino Tradition

Hello Gorgeous Reader!This is actually an over due blog post. I’ve written a previous draft on this weeks ago but for some reason my computer decided to delete all my drafts. Now I’m forced to rewrite this blog or technically write a new one.Last April first my fiancé went to my residence to formally ask for my hand in marriage from my parents. This is a tradition among Filipinos called “Pamamanhikan”.We’ve been talking about having each other’s parents meet after the engagement. Our first option was to take them out for dinner. But we kind of hesitated over the idea because it would be super awkward to talk about our marriage plans with other people eavesdropping on us at a restaurant. Alas, it was my fiancé’s trusted league of merry-men (a.k.a his workmates) who convinced him to do it the traditional way. That is, to go to my house with his parents and family members bringing food. It was a great idea since it would be the best venue for our families to meet so that the wedding itse…

How to Get Married: Legal Requirements

Hello Gorgeous Reader!NOTE: Please be informed that this blog is based on Cagayan de Oro City requirements. The process for other places may vary and is beyond my jurisdiction. @_@For a marriage to be called valid or legally binding; it must be registered/recorded at the government branch called Civil Registrar. It is basically the logbook of our government. The legality of a marriage has many purposes such as civil, financial,  health benefits, and many more.Below are the steps to get your “Marriage License”.STEP 1Find someone who is willing to marry you. This someone must not be currently within a marriage or ‘free to marry’. Note that there is no divorce in the Phils. Even if that person has been living separately from his/her spouse for longer than 10 years he/she is still considered married by law unless his/her wife/husband is already dead. This person must also be of legal age (18 years old and above). If either of you are within 18-21 years old; you are required to present an …
