Who here is familiar with the Underworld series of films? Vampires and werewolves, blue leather, guns, explosions, you got it. First film was fantastic, second film was… not. Third film they were clearly making just because they could. Tonight I saw a trailer for the new Underworld film and my first thought when I saw it was “fantastic! I can’t wait to get the soundtrack”. Apart from the first film the series has blown chunks, but each sound track is some of the best dark rock and metal out there - I can’t get enough and I am seriously looking forward to the next soundtrack being released.
Are there any other films or series of films you can think of where you’ve looked forward to them but not for the actual film? I may have come up with the only reason, but you never know
I would agree with Jackdavinci, that I sometimes watch a movie for a specific actor; sometimes also for the music. Coincidentally, the movie that is most ‘watching an actor’ driven for me, is infact the Underworld series. Kate Becinsale in latex…brr, in the third one replaced by Rhona Mitra…also not bad.
The first Marvel character to be in a money-making film wasn’t Spider-Man or Wolverine; it was Blade, Vampire Hunter. I was relieved that Marvel superheroes could get big-screen respect at last, but I really don’t care for vampire movies.
Whereas those of us inclined to men watching the film don’t get so much - we’re informed that Scott Speedman is attractive but I don’t really feel it myself. Although there is that scene in the first Underworld where two werewolves having a fight then turn into naked, buff men panting. Brrrrr.
I always look forward to that giant tub of popcorn showered with butter and lots of salt. Then when the light go out in the theater you can start shoveling fist fulls of it down your food hole like there is no tomorrow. Never mind the fact that half of it never actually makes it to your mouth. It just finds its way to your lap or the floor somewhere.
Seriously, where else in public can you go and it’s OK to act like such a pig?
