From Transylvania with love 

"Van Helsing" debuts at number 1 at the American box office. It's a tale of a fearless vampire- and monster-slayer who can't remember his past, and after watching it last night I wish I could also enjoy a selective amnesia of those two hours and ten minutes. Although I guess it's alright if you're looking for completely mindless entertainment (and please don't try to learn European geography from this movie; Budapest is not surrounded by mountains).

"Van Helsing"'s producer and director Stephen Sommers (also responsible for "The Mummy") dedicated this film to the memory of his father. As my equally unimpressed friend remarked, "he must have really hated his dad."
