Kate Beckinsale moonlighting in a non-Underworld blockbuster and Hugh Jackman taking time off from playing Wolverine – casting-wise, the film certainly didn’t do anything wrong.
What causes Van Helsing to end up being a pretty mediocre film are the writing and the pacing. Still, the film is not as bad as many reviews might have caused you to believe. […]
This third film in this series again is very similar to its predecessors. You either like this franchise, or you don’t. […]
This is a very sub-par vampire film from the people at The Asylum. In some departments of this production there seems to have been enough talent that would have allowed to produce a solid B-movie, but bad writing, a bulging back-story, and a convoluted plot mean that this film turned out very messy instead.

This TV-show for children is based on the first two novels of a 21-novel-franchise. A German-Canadian co-production, The Little Vampire features an impressive cast including Michael Gough and Gert Fröbe. […]
This is the first Santo-film for me. It is a rather silly B-movie, but I expected worse. At least there are a number of beautiful shots in this film. […]

The first season of the From Dusk Till Dawn series re-tells the plot of the original film, tweaking and changing certain elements and characters, and adding a larger back-story. Despite some structural problems, this show should be enjoyable for fans of the film and for “newcomers” alike. […]
A classic in its own right, albeit a rather controversial one, 1992’s Buffy has perhaps more in common with other post-Hughes teen-comedies than with Joss Whedon’s TV show. Still the film is not as bad as you might have been told, although the third act is undeniably a bit of a train-wreck. […]
