IMDb has been the go-to source for movie information on the Internet since 'Nam, and it (obviously) takes its work seriously. So it's rare that you'll find a synopsis for a well-known movie that's anything but diligent and professional.
That's what makes those moments when you do find a bad IMDb synopsis special. But what makes a "bad" IMDb synopsis, exactly? In this case, we measured it by two things: undertones of laziness, or undertones of snark — and in some cases, both. Get More »
As we established in our list of the 25 Best Movies of 2012, it was a pretty great year at the multiplexes.
But in what you are about to read below, well, there is no "good."
Some of these actually didn't do too badly in the box office and one might incite some rage from a certain fan army (sorry guys, but our whole staff agreed!), but either way, we want to know what you think. Read up on our 10 clunkers of 2012 and hit up the comments section below with your two cents. Get More »
"I was a big fan of 'The Lost Boys,' but I think 'Nosferatu' is probably my favorite. There's something so timelessly mysterious about it. Just the way that it's shot, it's so dark and shadowy and sinister.
"I believe that guy could be wandering around in the alleys of Transylvania. The teeth and the ears … it's just really scary, the first of its kind. Really ethereal."
Before classically trained actor Benjamin Walker took up his axe as the Great Emancipator in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," out on Blu-ray and DVD today, he had small roles in "Kinsey" and "Flags of Our Fathers." It was on Broadway where he truly made his name, as our 7th President in the Broadway rock musical "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson."
This week: Before he became an actor, Channing Tatum worked as a male stripper, which inspired Steven Soderbergh to direct "Magic Mike," a behind-the-scenes look at a troupe of male strippers taking it off nightly at a club in Florida.
Also new this week is the self-explanatory horror thriller "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," the sweet-natured apocalyptic romance "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" and a definitive anniversary edition of "Blade Runner" on Blu-ray. Get More »
In pop culture terms, vampires can be a pretty divisive subject. On the one hand, some people love them and think they're cool and sexy. On the other hand, well, vampires kind of are bloodsucking, undead abominations whose unholy existence should be condemned by every right-minded individual. So it's a toss up.
But if you're one of those who stand with our 16th president against the forces of vampirism, then take up your axe and get ready, because we've got a brand new "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" giveaway just for you.
Justice may be its own reward, but free loot doesn't hurt either.
Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis may be preparing to unveil their "Lincoln," but the alt-universe version of our 16th President is also still out there, keeping our country safe from the creatures of the night.
"Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" will be sworn in at this year's New York Comic Con, which begins today and runs through Sunday, Oct. 14 at the Javits Center. This new poster for the film will be unveiled at NYCC, but you can see it first exclusively in digital form right here, featuring artwork by Nimit Malavia, a freelance illustrator whose clients include Marvel Comics, 20th Century Fox, The National Post and more.

The summer is over and we're heading back to school. I'm trading in my Mojito Mix for a protractors as we speak.
Time will put summer 2012 in its historical context but, by and large, I'd call it a successful one. We may have lost a TomKat but we gained a Kimye. If that isn't a grand metaphor for this funny little thing we call life, I don't know what is.
As far as Fanboy movies are concerned, rarely have we been so well-serviced. Between "Avengers," "The Dark Knight Rises" and "The Amazing Spider-Man," I can't think of a time when so many major ticket comic book heroes were in the spotlight. As autumn comes and we don our pea coats and khakis -- yes, we attend Dartmouth in 1962 -- it's time to look back at the standouts of Fanboy movies Summer 2012. Get More »
"Speech Attack!" No vampire can withstand the power of "Four score and seven years ago."
The gang at FreddieW Gamez has transported our 16th president to somewhat more recent history as they've re-imagined "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" as a video game from the classic Nintendo era of 16-bit side-scrollers. And really, the only thing wrong with it is we can't play it ourselves. Get More »
It took Russian director Timur Bekmambetov to make a movie about America's most beloved historical figure fighting Transylvania's most dangerous monsters in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter."
Adapted for the screen by the original novelist Seth Grahame-Smith, it reimagines The Great Emancipator as a great decapitator of bloodthirsty slaveowners through his prolific talent wielding an axe. It costars Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, with Rufus Sewell gleefully chewing up the scenery as the head vampire in charge. Get More »
