Cirque du Freak: Vampire's Assistant
This was a fun film. They did a nice job of mixing humor and action and cool visuals and maintaining balance between the aspects. My only complaint is that the movie seemed incomplete. It clocked in a bit over an hour-and-a-half, but it seemed like they needed about 30 more minutes rescued from the cutting room floor to tie up all the ends running around. Still worth seeing, and the visuals do play a bit better on the big screen, me thinks.
Mrs dte insisted on seeing this one. While it wasn't bad, I don't see where it's "top movie of the weekend" material. It's really a Blair Witch formula without much variation. The ending was a bit surprising, but I don't know that I ever caught the "sense of dread" bug. Still, reasonably well done and worthy of a rental when the time comes. Mrs dte loved it.
Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
