Van Helsing

Yuka, Elizabeth, KAT! and I went to see Van Helsing and then had dinner at the Queen Mother. Dinner was good. Can\'t have too much Pin Gai chicken. But the movie? The movie was great. Much better than we thought it would be. I read some negative reviews from people who obviously think that humour begins and ends with Mr Bean and Monty Python. No obvious gags, but this movie does not for a moment take itself seriously. It rips off everyone from Bond films, to Indiana Jones, LoTR, the obvious two Mummy movies, strangely enough Young Frankenstien, and every other Frank, Drac, Wolfman flick. The ending is yawn, but as elizabeth points out it is a totally suitable salute to Dracula. Unless you find Goddard to be a hollywood sellout and hate overly referential films, it should work just fine for you. Did for us."
