    Episode 222 - Unforgettable

    This can't be a shirt... but it deserves to be made! #illbearookandtakethatcastle #notmycastle #paulscheernewcastle #paulscheeriscastle?
  3. Universal had *very* high hopes for this film as a potential film franchise, a jumping point for a potential NBC series entitled "Transylvania", and a strong presence in their theme parks. In 2004, Universal Orlando completely rethemed their Horror Make-Up Show to include elements from Van Helsing (many aspects are still in that show to this day), and Universal Studios Hollywood opened a year-round Haunted House themed to the film called Van Helsing: Fortress Dracula (it closed in 2006). Back to Universal Orlando, there was even a plan to make a Van Helsing-themed ride in their Islands of Adventure theme park. This would have been an indoor ride using state-of-the-art robotic arms carrying riders through scenes based around the film. When the film bombed, the project was shelved... but the concept was later used for the VERY successful Wizarding World of Harry Potter ride: "Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey" - using the same robotic arm vehicles. So... if it weren't for the failure of Van Helsing, we might not have gotten the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park attractions. Below are 'supposed' leaked blueprints of the cancelled Van Helsing ride at Islands of Adventure (from the IOACentral forums).

    Schindler's List

    I'm almost ashamed to admit this, but the first time I ever saw Schindler's List... was on my phone. I'd never seen it (always wanted to) and more or less seized the moment when it showed up on Hulu. Usually I'm against seeing a movie for the first time via phone, mobile device, or an airplane as so many outside factors detract from the experience - plus it's never the way the filmmaker intended it to be shown. I think it speaks to the quality of this film that, not only was I engaged throughout staring at my phone for 3+ hours, I was even crying during the final minutes of the film where Schindler breaks down in tears and, of course, the real life List survivors walking to his grave. It goes to show that a masterpiece is a masterpiece - no matter the medium.
