The book is awesome, the trailer is awesome, I'm looking forward to this one!



What, just because it doesn't fit the typical Hollywood movie formula it earns a WTF?

While I may not be a fan of Tim Burton's movies, this has gotten my attention.

As a distant relative to Pres. Lincoln
( my 8th G-grandmother Mary Harrison,
was the 2nd cousin of Honest abe's great
grandmother, Abigail Harrison ) I find this
movie trailer to be just alittle over-the-top.

Is it offensive to his legacy/memory???
..not sure yet.Doesn't look all that positive. confused13.gif  no.gif

I dunno, Lincoln was a bit of a dick. He doesn't deserve the bright and shiny image he has today. He did do some great things, but he did do some terrible things.

*I'm a distant relative of John Adams. He is one of least favorite presidents*

That could be true..president's are human too..we all make mistakes.
We wouldn't be the USA of today without him...that's for sure.

Both of them walked all over the constitution. And Lincoln liberated the slaves only to hurt the south, not out of any real moral obligation. And the south probably would have joined the Union again after a few years due to their terrible economy.

Are you serious? Dude's fighting vampires. I'm pretty sure it's not meant to be some biting commentary on his legacy.

"Offensive" is a word far too frequently bandied about, IMO.

Yeah, hey, I have an idea! Let's turn a thread about a movie in which an American president thinks he's Buffy the Vampire Slayer into a serious political discourse that will get it moved into SOCN.

It's Abraham Lincoln fighting vampires for fk's sake. Don't take it so seriously!

Hey Dan, I said I'm not sure...I'm gonna have to see the flick first.

Well, the author of 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer' did also write 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies', so maybe there will be a zombie-filled sequel. Both were amusing reads, and I'm sorta looking forward to the movie!

Actually, I DID read that one! Buuuuuuuut I didn't think too much of it. It read like some crappy network tv show trying to be hip. I didn't realize it was the same author.
