Attempting to get right to the point (not something I excel at):

If the "best" Green Day album(s) is worthy of 5 stars (argument could be made for any studio album between '91 and 2005, my personal fave is Nimrod)...

Absurd take on "vampires" and "werewolves", laughable "super-powers", bad acting, ridiculous makeup, paper-thin plot and characters, schizophrenic directing style... etc.

Yes I am a fan of Bram Stoker's book "Dracula" and many more classic traditional takes on the Vampire myth.
Having said that, I am also a fan of many modern, more stylised ones such as… Read more
