Vampires.... IN SPACE!!! (slightly NSFW pi of Kate), or at least that's the latest rumor about the film.  I don't know about you but a 3D movie would be the perfect chance for Kate Beckinsale to finally have a full nude scene...

A couple of weeks ago I saw Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. Terrible... and not just for the lack of Kate.

That's like saying internal hemorrhaging is more fun than blunt force trauma to the head.

Setting the bar that high are we?

I guess my main complaint was that I didn't realize it was all period. I kept waiting for the jump to present day, so I felt like the whole movie was setting something up that never came. In truth, the whole move was backstory that I didn't care about.

While I enjoyed the movie for the most part (I guess I just like the series in general so I'll take anything I can get, even FakeKate/Rhona Mitra), I felt like the story had actually been told quite well in the previous films, and it was a missed opportunity to take the main plotline further.  I'm not sure why Hollywood has such a fascination with prequels; personally I prefer stories to keep moving forward, and if I really want to flesh out what happened in the past, I'll read the books/source material or whatever.

Although I would like to go on record with the statement that Rhona Mitra "does it for me".

I think it was the Life of David Gale where I learned of Ms Mitra. Wow. Didn't save the movie for me though.

Oooh, they have Tywin Lannister.

Not that the trailer looked particularly good, but I suppose I'll see this at some point anyway. Even if the trailer featured the mandatory and completely retarded "look at us throwing stuff at the screen in 3D" scene.

I wonder if they accidentally played the latest Resident Evil instead of this in a theater if anyone would realize it?

You are all such haters!

Love the RE series, love the Underworld series!  The only thing better than Kate Beckinsale and/or Milla Jovovovovich is if you put them both together in the same movie.  And clone each of them!  And make them fight zombie dogs.  There's always room for zombie dogs.

Hmm, I could think of a few other things they could do together, than fight zombie dogs...

You mean the only thing better OTHER than a Kate Bekinsale & Milla Jovovovich love scene.   drool

Nobody saw this?

I have good news and bad news.  The good news is I loved it!  It's definitely a real sequel off of the 2nd film, and doesn't move so far into the future that it ignores the past movies entirely.  I was afraid they were going to do an Aliens 3 and just advance into a whole future storyline and erase movie 2.  While they do pretty much move to a new story (no more flashbacks and backstory), it's still deeply rooted in the events of the first 2 movies.  A lot of gory, excellent and fun action sequences, and it's great to see Kate back in her outfit.  I saw it in 3D but I don't think it added much, just a few cool splatter and shatter effects.

The bad news is... I loved it!  But... I also loved the last RE movie in a very similar way.  Knowing almost everyone hated the last RE, I don't know whether to recommend the movie, because I left with basically the same feeling.  There isn't a whole lot to the "plot" depth, and like RE it leaves things wide open for a sequel.  There's a live action comic book feel to these movies that I think some people just won't enjoy.  Personally I really enjoyed it and can't wait to see more.  It opened at $25million so I'm hoping it will be enough to get a sequel.

I was going to go because I have a 10 dollar off promotion coupon that I received when buying a blu ray disc last week.  But after seeing the abysmal reviews I decided that almost free still isn't good enough.  icon_wink
