  1. I like your statement: “Vlad single handedly takes out an entire army without getting wounded.” It was like in Lord of the Rings 3 when that ghost army wipes out the entire battlefield. It destroys any suspense or tension in the film.

    One thing I didn’t like about Dracula Untold (and it’s a big thing) is that they turned Dracula into a Marvel comic superhero. He could have been a member of the X-men, and that’s not who Dracula is.

    I wrote a short essay on Dracula Untold called “The Doctrine of Jihad.” I examined the real history of Mehmed the Conqueror. If you would like to read it, I am open to any helpful feedback: https://christopherjohnlindsay.wordpress.com/2016/01/01/dracula-untold-2014/

    • Nice, it is good to see someone take the time to learn about the villain of a historically twisted story rather than only focusing on the heroes

  2. Well, I’d tell you to be yourself, but I have no room to talk. I’m a chatterbox and all my reviews are only a few sentences.

    I am, though, starting to do new & different kinds of posts. And that’s largely thanks to you and Drew.

    So, don’t underestimate your influence. 😀

    • Thanks have you joined the LAMB yet? link on my site,

      have you thought about podcast, video reviews before?

      hopefully you got the mesage about the Stephen King blogathon that youo should come take part in should be good, rob gets a lot more hits comment wise than i do.

      • I’m really massively introverted and clam up quickly with only a few people around.

        I was chatting with Emma about podcasts and had never considered that, if I clam up in person, I’d just clam up during a podcast.

        Video reviews sound like a lot of fun, but the equipment costs, editing time, and consistency in publishing seem intimidating.

        The Stephen King thing sounds cool. Never got a message, where should I look for it?

      • I sent it to the same address we use for Opinion Battles, It is in October,

        For those DVD updates i literally start and stop no editing used. i would love to start a podcast and i feel once i find the people to have the right banter i could get one going, i am going to be on my first next month.

  3. It stinks that the more blogs I follow the less posts I read.

    I wish I had any good advice, but I don’t think the quality of a post has anything to do with the feedback it gets.

    • I might just save it for bigger films rather than every film which i was doing it for, i used to write parts of them while working so when i finish my time off i might get back into them.
