You are spot on Zanna!
Unfortunately, the internet age has given voice
to some of the most pretentious and unimaginative people
on the face of the earth, who spew their opinions as if they are
legitimate film critics, who have studied and understand film!
The one guy who said that he "wanted it to be more historically accurate"
and was therefore, disappointed....I wanted to reach through my computer
screen, through his, and choke & shake him! (-:
I want to say to him: "Dude, the movie is called "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter"!!
That's a pretty good indicator that it's not going to be a History Channel-style
documentary!---Sheesh, shoot yourself already!"
Anywayz, you were absolutely right...
Don't over-analyze it, or expect it to be too serious...just take the journey & be entertained.
Next, they'll be criticizing Mary Poppins and Chitty-Chitty Bang...
Saying how that sort of thing could never happen in real life. (No ish Sherlock!)
