I’m watching the last 15 minutes of the movie and then I’ll surf some more blogs to make sure everyone is awake and still posting. You know, doin’ my part to help and all that.
The producers/writers/director of “Blade: Trinity” were smart to have Ryan Reynolds have all the funny lines in this movie. Since he has a comedic background on TV (and was National Lampoon’s Van Wilder) I wouldn’t have taken him seriously in this movie if he had been all dark and dangerous. And since it’s a dark movie it would be weird to have Wesley Snipes be comedic. So they saved 99% of the funny lines for Reynolds, and it works since he’s quite engaging.
Remember that show “Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Joint”? He was in that and was a bit too smarmy, but obviously he is good when he tones that down a bit.
I’m 1:16 into the movie now. And more importantly, we’ve only got six hours to go and we’re done with the Blogathon! Home stretch, dearies. Home stretch. As an updated count, the Blogathon as a whole has now had $54076.97 Total Pledged. I guess $75K is out of reach, but $60K would beat their goal by a significant portion.
I don’t know if I like the new backstory this movie is giving Dracula. I also don’t like that they have him as some kind of monster with a dislocating jaw and all that. Not that I’m expecting a movie that sticks close to the original book or anything, but don’t just make stuff up.
Okay, the psychiatrist in the movie is cracking me up. The actor was in “Best in Show” and “A Mighty Wind” and I can’t help but picture him in those movies as opposed to this horror film.
I just went down and turned off the air conditioner. I realized that it was on pretty much all day. I had switched it to run all the time to help CootieBoy cool down, but forgot to set it back to “Auto” so that it would only come on when the temp rose in the house.
This attic NEVER gets cold but I’m actually a bit chilly right now.
Okay, 23 minutes into the movie and I’m loving it. Parker Posey is in it too, which cracks me up. She’s so totally random in the movies she does. Not as random as Johnny Depp, but close. Hers tend to be more campy than his do.
And Kris Kristofferson? Kind of a bad actor.
Now, if JK Rowling could start her book the way this movie started, I’d be a happy camper! I LOVE vampire movies. Especially those starring Wesley Snipes!
