Prediction: Since Luke Decided He Needed to Talk About the New Dracula…
… I’m going to make him predict I, Frankenstein.
Shiri’s Prediction: Hahahahahahahaha. “God will surely damn you.” “He already did.” Holy crap. *Ahem* Having only seen a couple of short clips prior to ten minutes ago, I’m happy to say, the first five seconds of the trailer has more plot than I expected to pop up in the entirety of the film. I love Aaron Eckhart, though I’ve never so much thought of him as an action hero, and Bill Nighy doing us the favor of existing, let alone allowing us to watch him on screen, will get me to spend ten bucks. There is going to be far, far too much CGI which, whatever, it’s a goofy monster flick and will certain become irritating by the halfway mark. I, Frankenstein is “by” the people who did Underworld (affectionately known in my house as Underwear) so the bar is set far too low for anyone to limbo under to begin with, and will surely be reminiscent of the thoroughly enjoyable monstrosity that was Van Helsing. A good film? Absolutely not. A fun flick and a decent way to spend a January night when it’s too cold to do anything else and I have cabin fever? Absolutely. I predict a good time that needs never be spoken , at least until Luke and I do our “classic monsters” podcast and never again thereafter.
Luke’s Prediction: Now, I love a good popcorn movie, but this just looks like rubbish. Too many special effects, no plot and nothing interesting to look at (at least Underworld had excessive gun play and leather gear).
“From the producers of Underworld,” should read: “we replaced Vampires and Werewolves with Gargoyles (angels?) and Frankenstein’s, hoped no one would notice.” This is not even going to be a good “bad-with-a-couple-of-ciders” movie.
If you were wondering what a movie that is not going to make its production costs back, even in digital, dvd/blu-ray, etc., here it is.
