Fanfic on the big screen - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
Fanfic on the big screen
Well, I'm trying not to get my hopes up about Van Helsing. I'm always disappointed. But it looks like it could at least be a fun action romp, anyway.

Still, it's going to be one of three things:
1. Just plain horrible
2. So horrible it's funny, or
3. What I'm almost daring to hope for... a good piece of Dracula prequel fanfic, fleshing out the history of Van Helsing's that's hinted at in the books. That's a character born to be ficced.

Fingers crossed. Hopes not high. But at least two of the three options will be enjoyable...

I do love it when fanfic is actually produced professionally. I wish they'd just fess up and admit it's fanfic, though. It would help the whole lot of us if they could just say, "See, people do this all over the place, okay? It's not freaky."

Oh, well. It's late enough for me to go to bed now, and get some blessed sleep (though I broke my rule and napped earlier, so I may have messed myself up). G'night all.

I don't hold great hopes for it either. Which is a pity cos I really like Hugh Jackman and would like to see it succeed if only for his sake.
But it looks awfully like League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Underworld.

Well, if nothing else, it looks as though it will at least be entertaining (the special effects look pretty cool). And it will tide me over for a bit until PoA.

Well, I'm hoping not plain horrible, certainly... I'm not sure it looks very promising as Good Prequel Fanfic, but then, I was completely distracted from the rest of the trailer by the fact that the actor who played Wolverine in the X-Men movies was going on about not having memories.
