Blade series (Fang slicing)
Blood on the Dance floor
Back in the day when I saw this coming out I was ecstatic! It in a way was sort of a 'dirty' fantasy come true my favorite actor Stephen Dorff was in it & it was a Vampire movie. I remember when I saw the trailers, wondering what it was with Stephen Dorff that looked different. I noticed his eyes looked funny and remembered them being brown. I brushed it off figuring maybe he was wearing contacts. That should have been a hint to me (if not outright tell) as to who or what he would be playing.
I like the beginning scene in the club though fully insulted that they had (I forget her name but she played the red haired vamp) in it (when frankly that should have been my part for a variety of reasons!). In this part we learn that Stephen Dorff plays Deacon Frost, one of the vampires.
The choreography for the fights are quick. It also shows the difference between how vampires move to Humans. There's quite a few other favorites of the movie but mentioning them might or will spoil parts for others.
I didn't care much for the hematologist, but then again when Stephen Dorff is in a movie.. no one else matters! In this though one other won me over, Donal Logue's Quinn became a favorite character as well as actor. "I'm going to be naughty...I'm going to be a naughty vampire God"
I also like the ending fight scene as well, and the entrance to Pearl's.
How much do (or did) I like this movie?
I saw the movie 3 times in the theater, with 3 different people. I wore out the VHS cassette and it was the first dvd I purchased (& I may have worn that out too! trust me if anyone could wear out a dvd it WOULD be me!)
THis is one of my favorite scenes in the first movie. Also though I don't like House/Techno or 'club' music.. I really did like the 'blood Bath' one.
AS I said I really don't like the 2nd movie & apparently neither do my dvd players! NONE in the house even the portables will play it! So I really don't remember much of anything from this one other than 'Chuppa' is one of the guys from the first Fast & Furious movie, and Reinhardt plays Clay in Sons of Anarchy (& reminds me of a gorilla)
Parker Posey as a vampire made me laugh. She was so flakey & lame. Good & bad at the same time. Though I shudder any time I see a wrestler in a movie (mostly when its a cameo) because they always have some part where they use their signature movie and basically do what they do in the ring.
I'd say each different movie has its own theme and this one would be the comedy (or camp) one. Though I don't care for Triple H being in it. Love Ryan Reynolds character but then again he WOULD be the comedy of it.
