Rewatched 30 Days of Night last night, about a group of vampires attacking an isolated Alaskan town about to celebrate 30 days of night. Pretty good vampire flick. One scene, the slow overhead drone shot of the vampires just laying waste to the town and the villagers getting slaughtered, is incredible. Most horror films would have turned that into series of jump cuts showing individual people getting attacked and murdered. But seeing the grand scale of it made it more horrible. Families fighting for their lives, etc... Was a lot better movie than I thought it would be.
I watched Underworld Blood Wars. It took me three tries to get through the 90 minute movie. The whole movie revolves around drinking people's blood including a dead mother's thousand year old blood to get memories that fill in the story. In fact in the lead up to the final battle Selene bites her own blood to get flashbacks of everything going back to the original movie. I didn't know vampires were prone to amnesia.
The casting is eclectic. There's always that Brit elder that I thought was Victor but turns out to be some other vampire elder. And of course there is always the handsome Brit that is Selene's counterpart. Funny they were so consistent with that type of casting they couldn't be bothered to find a hybrid Michael actor that had the same look and colour of hair as the one she fell in love with.
Why did you watch it if it's bad?
I can't watch most stuff now, so wooden and blatant to be annoying. Been like that for the last 28 years nearly. Weird. Good stuff still seeps through, but Hollywood has well lost its allure. And I guess the hatred we feel towards them, as Meryl Streep appreciates, it's not really about their politics or gobshite virtue signalling, it really is about the lack of a quality product.
The old studio system had a much better grip: work them hard and manage their public image very strictly, so that they appeared above vulgar politics. You can't dream with modern "stars", they're pretty much down in the dirty virtue signalling for justification of their very existence. The old stars, didn't need to resort to such BS.
You should listen to the chapo's trap house review on it.Just watched Wonder Woman. Don't get the hype. Found it way too long and the CGI is terrible, not worthy a 2017 movie.

The live action "Ghost in the shell" is ok, but not more. The animes are a lot better.
I never noticed before how big Scarlett Johansson's nose is. It really dominates the close-ups.
It looks stunning (the movie, not the nose), but sadly it lacks the substance that made the anime so good. That was to be expected from a Hollywood adaption.
