Is it wrong that I enjoyed the movie Van Helsing?
I thought it was a fun flick, a la the Mummy movies. Not a fine film, but enjoyable. :shrug:

Plus, much better than that piece o' crap National Treasure, which I also watched over the weekend. x(

1. I liked it too...just an enjoyable movie.
Which is more than enough most of the time.

4. As long as you laughed at Beckinsale's "accent."
"I think that deserves a dlink." :rofl:

6. nothing wrong with liking it and it didn't have Nicholas Cage's distracting hair piece which is
always a plus. Anyhow i liked the movie "hot Rod" and it seems like everybody hated it.

10. Hated it almost passionately, loved National Treasure. Nothing wrong with either emotion. nt

12. I hope not. I liked it.
A pure popcorn movie. Watch it, enjoy it, forget it. That's what I did.

I just watched Tropic Thunder and I'm still giggling over that. :)

15. It was a cool premise
One of my favorite premises around the Bram Stoker Dracula story.

But horrible execution.

18. It's in a similar vein to The Mummy movies.
Good cheesy fun. Not a good movie, but good fun. :)

24. Of course not.
I can think of far worse ways to spend a couple of hours than watching Hugh Jackman in action.
