873...when a Hellsing-ignorant person hears you ranting and asks, "Like the movie, Van Helsing?", you have to be forcibly restrained from strangling them. (The doujinshi-ka also pleads the fifth with respect to this one.)
This happened to me last week! My roomate's girlfriend asked "like the movie, Van Helsing?". Ben made a sorta moan-like sound (he knew what was coming). I wouldn't be surprised if my eyes turned red for a moment. I didn't actually have to be physically restrained, but I did scare the crap out of her.
*giggles* I LOVED the Shine Sunday edition where Integra was shooting the target to release her anger over 'Van Helsing' and it screamed. The movie was decent. (I couldn't stop laughing at the melodramatic vampires.) I wish the creators of 'Underworld' had thought about doing werewolves like 'Van Helsing' did. Now, THOSE are werewolves. (Sorry, die-hard White Wolf gamer here.)
You never, ever think during action films. That takes all of the fun out of them. Like the Indiana Jones trilogy? They have devotees of Kali using voodoo and the head priest has a shrunken head on his headdress. TOTALLY inaccurate, but hey, it made for a great movie, right?
Odd that you mention that, but my b/f doesn't really like action flicks at all. He goes for bloody video games, (who doesn't?), but laughs when I get all excited during movies like The Three Musketeers. *blinks* Oh boy...that just says really weird things about us, doesn't it?
