Spoiler warnings, of course.
I’m talking about the 2003 movie about modern-day vampires and werewolves, not one of the other dozen movies with the same title.
I don’t mean spoil the movie for me, since I’ve seen it and liked it enough to buy a copy. The sequel was a little limp, though, giving me second thoughts about the first one. Now that I’m reselling some of my collection, this title may go.
Did you hate this movie? If so, why? Was it the little pseudoscientific annoyances (e.g. silver nitrate solution is blue, not silver), or the acting (Kate Beckensale may look fetching in black leather bodysuits, but she’s not exactly ready for Shakespeare), or the hardware (no matter how often you pull the trigger, machine pistols don’t carry hundreds of rounds in a clip), or the plot?
I think I liked the movie. I’m not a big horror movie fan, so I don’t know how it compares, but it struck me as more high fantasy than horror. In terms of effects, dialogue, plot and backstory, I think I might put it in the same league as Aliens, which I thoroughly enjoy. (Then again, I also enjoyed Chronicles of Riddick, which I freely admit is about 2 hours of cheese, and which I do not own a copy of.)
So anyhow, my theory is: if you can point out the parts of the movie that made you want to hurl bricks at the screen, and after that I still enjoy the movie, then I’ll keep it. Otherwise, it’s getting sold.
