Blade trilogy

Blade trilogyA while ago I was in a DVD shop and had two DVDs in my hand from the ‘three for 25 euros’ department, then my eye fell on a nice metal box with the “Blade” trilogy. Not really my kind of film, this pompous Hollywood action, but “Blade” is nicely dark and vampyric, so why not? We watched all three in one weekend and neither of the three is actually good enough for that. Not that I fell asleep or that I was bored, but just nice film should better be alternated with good films. It turned out that I already saw I (1998) and II (2002) some time and that all three are from different directors (much like with “Batman”) and II is of noone less than Guillermo del Toro. I do not remember it being better than the other two, but still. As you probably all know Blade is half a vampire and devoted himself to killing vampires. Of course his opponents get stronger with each film, upto noone less than Dracula himself in part III. Thick comic-hero action and amusing bloody fights make “Blade” a nice watch for a drousy evening, but like I said: better not watch all three in one weekend, since they are not that good.

Again somewhere

It does not happen to me often that I pick a film that I forgot I saw. “Somewhere” did not make a whole lot of impression, apparently it neither did the first time I saw it. A film without a story. We just see a few days of the life of a famous actor screwing [...]

Wicker weekend

Last weekend I saw both Wicker Man films, the 1973 original and the 2006 remake and I just see that I ‘blogged’ about these films before.

Nicholas Winding weekend

Last weekend I have rewatched both “Drive” (2011) and “Only God Forgives” (2013). The films are very similar, yet very different. Both have Ryan Gosling as poker-faced main character. In both films Goslings character is involved in illegal activities, but does not really seem to want to. Of course, both films are slow and minimalistic. [...]

No blog

A “blog” with one entry every two years, that is quite cool, is it not?

It has been a couple of years since I added “blogs” to the different sections so I could share information other than reviews. Looking back, I am not entirely sure what kind of information I had in mind. I [...]

Fantasy bombast

During two airplaneflights I have killed some time watching to fantasy spectacles. First the lauded “Avatar”, second the first “Hobbit”. I did not expect “Avatar” to be some sort of “Matrix”, but the famous blue characters inhabit some sort of ‘inbetweenworld’ that men can only come using some sort of machine. The film is an [...]
