Huh. While working on "The Ballad of the Second Son," I was ambushed by a sudden urge to finally go watch Van Helsing. VH's trailer had put it on my list of "must watch" movies a couple months before it came out (flashy period costumes and locales, monster-killing, cool weaponry--how could I resist?), until word-of-mouth took it right off.

Well, blame bagginses.com for putting up a shot of Carl, thus reminding me (once I figured out where the shot came from) that David Wenham's in VH, and that I want to see the movie right now.

Which meant running out to the local video place at 10 p.m. and grabbing a copy, rather than waiting a mere 11 hours (and getting some decent sleep) and picking it up from my library the next morning at a quarter of the rental cost. A quarter! I paid four times the cost just so I could disrupt my sleep schedule. Stupid sexy David Wenham.

Richard Roxburgh was the other draw, as I'm a big Moulin Rouge fan. That Wenham is in that film as well is just a bonus.

Well, I'll say this about VH: This is one of those movies that I really, really want to like.
