The more I see of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter — and the more I see how utterly seriously the movie takes the idea of our sixteenth president fighting vampires with guns and axes and axe-guns — the more I like it. And I keep forgetting Mary Elizabeth Winstead is in this, which is just another bonus. It’s like I’m looking for the prize in my cereal box and I found two instead! And one prize is a president killing vampires and the other is Ramona Flowers! Hell of a lot better than some light-up spoon or something. (Via Geeks of Doom)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
