  • EngTeach1985
    I was kind of looking forward to Linkara's explanations from the comic book.
  • Bloodrealm
    So was I! I'm kinda glad Linkara got revenge in the end! :P

    I was wondering if that was Linkara or not in the titlecard. lol, nice to see them do a crossover together.


    *waves eagerily* HI LINKARA! =D

    And I love Maven's winter outfit in the title card speaking of. Very pretty, I wish they sold something like that in JC Pennys.

    Yes a Maven review.
    I like how u mentioned about people were coming out claiming they like the comic and want to make a movie but took alot of liberties with the source material in the movie.

    Did I hear Foreigner then later vanilla ice playing? Can't check because I'm getting errors from blip now. sighs

    This movie should have been one of the best vampire movies ever made with one of the more original vampire ideas... HOW'd they fuck it up so bad???

    Linkara, I thought you were trying not to turn evil. Shame on you.
  • Minion of Yahtzee  - Oh Linkara
    avatar
    That Wizard was right, you truly are an evil, evil creature. Anyway sounds like fun I'll be sure to catch the "Positive" review of Twilight. Also I'm still waiting for that Kamen Rider Kiva review Maven.
  • TragicGuineaPig

    A POSITIVE review of Twilight? Oh, poor girl!
  • Moon Spirit
    avatar
    Oh man, I was hoping for Linkara's comic book knowledge to help, but Maven, you have incurred his wrath.

    Good luck with Twilight. We'll see how much this movie will sparkle as you will show. ;)

    I'm actually jealous that Linkara got to challenge Maven.
  • ElderGodBrandon  - songs

    In the order they appear:
    Cold As Ice by Foreigner
    Ice Queen by Within Temptation
    Ice, Ice, Baby (?) by Vanilla Ice
    ???
    Frozen by Within Temptation
    It's Cold Outside by...somebody. Christmas song.

    Hope that helped a bit.
  • DietCoke

    Plus: The Cold Song by Sting, Cold by Static X
    Long Night by Corrs, and Damn Cold Night by Avril Lavigne
  • CyborgPrince
    avatar
    Actually the Avril Lavigne song is called I'm With You, not Damn Cold Night.
  • NuLiberty
    Great review, the look on her face at the end was priceless. Now we get to see her slave through her greatest challenge yet...Twilight. This...should be interesting, indeed.

    Linkara is now known as Ti Malice Travels-by-Panels.

    Okay, the ways you said this movie could've been "improved" sound really cliched.
  • LikaLaruku
    avatar
    Dunno why, but whenever I see the title, my brain crosses over "Boogie Nights" with "1,001 Arabian Nights."

    You could probably write & direct a no-budget shot-on-shiteo movie that's better than this adaptation.

    Maven has been written into a tight corner.

    Oh no! Linkara knows the secret handshake!
  • pkingdom
    Sounds like you would have preferred Stephen King's Salem's Lot. The book, at least. That's pretty much the exact plot of the book you described.
  • Trencher
    Great review, this movie was allright as a zombie movie.. Also it had a positive role for a Trencher for once.
  • LikaLaruku
    avatar
    In order to be a failure of a vampire or zombie, all one need do is take a single bite of the victim before moving right on to the next. It's like a bunch of kids set loose in a chocolate bunny factory that only eat the ears.

    Well, she's yet to review Dracula: Sovereign of the Damned as Bennett had pointed out, seeing how she has not seen the movie (at the time of shooting at least). Assuming Maven doesn't have a copy, she'd either have to purchase it or get someone to give it to her, and even then she might have to deal with Linkara once more.
  • Axel Osbourne

    Ohhhhh, you're screwed Maven! As for this movie, you pretty much summed up my feelings about it (slow, boring, sucks) so I won't repeat, but I will add one thing that bugged me: the vampires in this seem to be directly ripped off from John Carpenter's Vampires. (I kept waiting for Jack Crow to show up and kick some ass, but it never happened)
  • J0hnny0hm  - Within Temptation? Twice?
    avatar
    Thank you! Within Temptation is a band that I feel not enough people know about and I'm glad to hear them twice in this video. Good thing they had two songs with themes of "cold".

    As for the review of the movie, yet another comic not done justice. Not really surprised anymore in that regard. It happens a lot to movies.

    30 Days of Night (the trailer) gave me a bit of a chill from the line where the girl is pleading to God, then the vampire says "no God" before she is killed. I thought that was good in the sense of taking away a person's hope in their final moments.

    ...this had a sequel? Wow.

    Oh, Linkara, you sly bastard. XD Don't worry, Maven. You can always positively review Twilight by saying it was meant as a comedy. I found the ridiculousness of the movies quite hilarious.
  • Kasimir
    Only replying to say, HELL FUCKING YES! Love Within Temptation, and equally happy to hear it here (was going to say surprised, but then, hell... this is the gothy reviewer's video) but, yes, what beautiful music they make.

    You know I genuinly would have liked to hear Linkara's take on 30 days of night....Bad Maven bad.
  • cannedfury
    This is such an awkward way to learn Ben Templesmith's name. Me and my friends have made fun of him so much because of his Silent Hill and Dead Space comics. Every last monster and character in those just kind of screamed and cursed as loud as possible while making hilarious faces. We'd never seen anyone destroy horror and atmosphere so badly that they turned into rage comics.

    Maybe those just happened to be duds with bad writing. I'll check out the 30 Days comic to see if it did better than his other comics or this movie. Though if it turns out the little vampire girl with ridonkulous lines is a faithful adaptation, it would explain so much.

    I wonder if Linkara was cut off so he could cover this title for his own Halloween review. If so, well-played.

    It mostly works there because of the use of coloring, but frankly I still dislike his art immensely. It's not good for sequential storytelling and he lacks consistent character models, instead going for scratches and sometimes vague blobs and shapes for people and monsters, IMHO. In addition, he lacks backgrounds.

    I honestly don't really get what people see in a lot of his work. 30 Days of Night works IN SPITE of his artistic choices, not because of them. I think the only time I actually liked his art style was in Doctor Who: The Whispering Gallery. It actually kind of worked there, though hard to say why.
  • cannedfury
    Oh, snap, I edited my comment while you were responding. Thanks for the answers, by the way.

    I rather enjoyed what I have read of his Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse. I think perhaps his style just lends itself to stories that have more comedy and weirdness to them. Of course, I am the type who enjoys the novelty of unique styles, but I was not as happy with his werewolf book.

    I believe Templesmith may also the kind of creator who needs someone to tell him to lower the amount of his style he injects into things. I am a fan of many of Tim Burton's works, but recognize that he also has a tendency to over-saturate his creations with his signature style. This is most jarring when creators like that are providing the visuals to someone else's story.

    Poor Maven. I've chosen the slow burning death of waiting for the dawn in a shaft like Claudia than to accept such a heinous task.

    And,yeah,this movie could've been a lot better. I remember back than a lot of people going apeshit over this movie and I found the last 40 minutes to be impossibly slow.
