Wow I can’t believe that Dark Shadows is coming out this week already. The year is just flying by. I was never a fan of Dark Shadows, though I had one co-worker at my old job who just loved it. I never saw it on TV as a kid and I think I just sort of bypassed it. But I can’t pass up a Tim Burton/Johnny Depp movie. Even though the last few Burton movies have been disappointing (I’m looking at you, Alice in Wonderland), I do love Tim Burton and think he is such a unique director. Visually it… Read more »

There’s a new trailer for Prometheus out in the world. Really, how awesome does this movie look? I went to the Prometheus panel at Wonder Con earlier this year and it looked great. I am very excited to see Ridley Scott back helming a sci fi movie and it just looks like it’s going to be really good. Only a month or so left before the movie comes out. What do you think of the new trailer? You can find Thuy on Twitter @fishgirl182

Review: We don’t usually do movie reviews here on Nite Lite because, let’s face it, I can barely keep up with book reviews and I see a lot of movies. However, I went out to a movie last night and thought… Read more »
Wow I can’t believe that it’s almost Friday already. The week really flew by. Last weekend I was busy with WonderCon, which was really fun. I may do some kind of a recap or something over the weekend. It was cool though and there was both a cheerleading and volleyball tournament going on at the convention center at the same time. I think they were really confused as to why there were so many people in costume wandering around and all the WonderCon people thought that the athletes were in costume. I ended up going to the panel for Abraham… Read more »
I just saw this trailer for On The Road, based on the book by Jack Kerouac. I have to admit that I tried reading this years ago and never got through it. I don’t remember much about it except that it was just really rambling and I couldn’t get into it. This trailer looks kind of interesting and I love Viggo Mortensen. K Stew isn’t my favorite but I can deal. I doubt I’ll run out to the theater when this is released but I might catch it on video. On The Road will be released on May 23, 2012.
To tell you the truth, this movie hasn’t really been on my radar. I knew it was in production and all but I wasn’t really that interested in it. I liked Grahame-Smith’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies but Abe Lincolin as a vampire hunter just didn’t pique my interest. But given the pedigree of this film, it looks like it could be really fun. What do you guys think? Are you going to see it this summer? Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter hits theaters on June 22, 2012. Official Websites: Twitter, Facebook
