Blade III, Underworld III and late nights

I am watching Blade III. I love vampire movies, I went to see Underworld III Rise of the Lycans on Saturday. Yay. But you know, Blade III… really.

It’s simply too easy for Blade to kill vampires in this episode, and Drake, who is supposed to be the ORIGINAL vampire,  very evil and INCREDIBLY powerful,  seems hardly more macho than Schofield’s brother in Prison Break. Just like a regular guy with fairly big muscles and suitably attractive with his shirt off. And he cannot even fly. He has to RUN up stairs through buildings. Where is his astonishing speed? Everybody KNOWS that you can hardly see vampires move for their supersonic velocity.

And THEN, in the Final Scene, he fights Blade in his HUMAN FORM.

How pathetic is that? Does he WANT to lose? Only towards the end does he assume his original creepy sort-of-metallic ancient rhinoceros-skin shape, and then Blade is almost done for. Humanus Nocturnus: the First, should be way more impressive.  And all that Mutual Respect stuff when Drake dies… his character has some serious arc-problems. He is supposed to be pissed, evil, and not give a shit.

Like Bill Nighy in Underworld. I think he is pretty scary, and seems evil enough for an original. At least the weekend has not been a total vampire write-off.

 The Woody Allen movie tonight is Husbands and Wives.  It’s 10.15. I am going to bed.
