Movie of the Day – Blade II

So good and campy that I had to go ahead with the second one in the franchise.  I certainly won’t be pushing any praise on that craptastic third Blade film, Blade Trinity, cause fuck that sucked.  No I want to go into the often crapped on, but ultimately pleasing sequel to the breakout hit Blade with the sequel directed by Guillermo Del Toro.  Yeah, he ended up making a wildly satisfying flick that gave us more of what made the original fun to watch, but neglected to give us anything in terms of plot, dialogue, or anything else that could have made this flick.  But fuck all that, lets get to the Daywalker goodness of vampire hunting.

Movie of the Day – Blade

So Wesley Snipes got out of prison this past week, which means a Blade 4 or whatever is probably going to be in the works as we speak.  Now I liked the first two Blade pics, not the last one with Ryan Reynolds and something about a super vampire or whatever, but the Blade series has always been this campy, fetish style horror, action flick that delivered on what it wanted and that is about all you can ask for.  I am not looking for something deep or prophetic, just Blade going around town, killing vampires, playing techno music and always betting on black.

Movie of the Day – King of New York

Any movie with Christopher Walken in it is a good movie in my book.  Except of course for Click, The Stepford Wives remake, Hairspary, Man of the Year, Domino, Gigli, Kangaroo Jack, The Country Bears, and Blast From The Past.   I guess not all of them can winners, but I will say that his good outweigh the bad.  Today I want a little gritty film to talk about and why Abel Ferrara’s crime drama King of New York.  Sure Ferrara is probably better known for Bad Lieutenant, but Walken and company make King of New York one of my favorite movie’s of Ferrara’s filmography.

Movie of the Day – Demolition Man

John Spartan, you are fined five credits for being such an awesome, kick-ass, science fiction trash movie.  My only wish is that the Franchise Wars happens and Taco Bell takes over all commercial food distribution from here to eternity.  DEMOLITION MAN!

Movie of the Day – Passenger 57

This movie is the sole reason that I go to the casino’s and only bet on black.  It’s a sure bet if there ever was one and I trust Wesley Snipes.  Then again the man is in jail for tax evasion, so I guess that bet didn’t payoff in the end.  HEY YO!  I dig this terrible movie in the same way I love 90s action films for their general cookie cutter template and glorious smattering of violence and ass kicking.  Passenger 57 is like Die Hard on a plane, but a cheap, coach class economy plane.
