My Razored Flesh
Angels bleed from the tainted touch of my caress
Blad Trinity
I saw Blade Trinity last night. I would classify it more as a comedy than anything. It had a few good action sequences but like I said alot of sarcastic humor. Parker Posey was kinda cute as a vampire, but I kept waiting for her to say, 'I'm going to lob your dick off. Like a chicken head.' (I may have the your confused with a his, but bonus points if you know what movie that's from, if you don't then, you need to go rent it)

Ryan Reynolds, played one of Blade's helpers and his character completely reminded me of Banky Edwards from Chasing Amy.

Ok, now, Dominic Purcell, who played Drake, aka Dracula, was a little robotic, his lines came out awkward and how they killed him off was a little too easy. I mean, come on, he is the progenitor of the entire vampire line and to quote the movie and previews 'He was born perfect. He did not have to evolve.' Not to mention that he seemed to be following Parker Posey's character around, he was almost like one of her thugs. He referred to the other vampires as mere shadows of him, so why bother doing anything for them. He should be worshiped.

Ok, enough ranting. The movie was ok. I was mildly disappointed, but I did not expect much from it to begin with. So, I would still give it enough credit to view it in a second run theater.

*Edit: How does a 3000 year old vampire that has been sleeping all this time speak/understand english?

Aim low.

That's my motto with horror movies. Actually, what it really amounts to is that I'm not picky. I love horror movies - all types - and it's as simple as that. I love horror novels in a similar fashion, though I prefer vampire and/or Gothic novels to anything else. (I have a massive collection.)

I never care what critics are going to say about horror movies, because they have always had a bias about them, like they're not as good as anything else. Even IWTV and The Crow weren't good enough for the Academy. Please. They also need a "Best Horror" and Best "Sci-fi" category. Perhaps "Best Anime" (not Best Animated Film, mind you).

I'll be going to see it soon. But yes, I'm angry knowing that Dracula was going to be a little wussy boy sucker in this movie. What were the bloodbags that wrote this thing thinking? >)

Re: Aim low.

I love horror movies too, there was a point where the local movie store in the town I lived in, had no horror movies that I had not seen. I have seen some pretty bad ones. ;)

Sorry if I spoiled anything for you about 'ol Drac.

I almost went to see it tonight, but I fell asleep. :)

That quote would be from Doom Generation. Never seen it though.

3000 years but speaks English? Perhaps through a subconscious communique with the waking world? Sounds like the suspension of disbelief went right out the window on this one.

Roger Ebert is very fond of horror movies. Loved the first 2 Blade movies, said this one was mostly gratuitous violence without enough plot to sustain it. Sounds like the xbox market was more interested than move audiences and producers.

Yay. Bonus points for you. Only one to get it.

They made no indication that he had a connection to the waking world, but a simple, 'You speak english' 'I may have slept but I know what my blood is doing...' etc etc. Would have sufficed.

Yeah. Figures.
