A day-walking vampire halts his crusade against them, forming a truce to hunt an even worse monster.
An adequate movie, with an acceptable amount of over-the-top nonsense. Definitely worth watching for fans of the original. Easily stands the test of time.
Properly titled Blade II
Born as the survivor of a bitten-pregnancy, a part-vampire "day walker" continues his crusade amidst one of their ranks' power play for leadership.
A classic movie, before the whole superhero genre got entirely out of hand. It's an unfortunate rewriting of the original comic book, but it does well with what it has. It's blunt and stiff, yet entertaining.
It has only a couple of moments of technology which feel old, otherwise it has held up well.
A boy turned into a horrifying soldier becomes a totally likable guy.
I believe I watched this movie already, but perhaps it faded from memory due to its mediocrity. I couldn't watch very far in before being entirely turned off at the concept of the main character.
An unaged man without a memory is sent by a secret multifaith order of monster hunters as the last hope of a lineage doomed to purgatory unless they slay the lord of all vampires.
Not a great or bad movie, but still good enough to be worth watching. It's mostly interesting because of its main character, and the rest of it is piecemeal and without particular substance.
I think this movie was my initial introduction to Kate Beckinsale, and it turns out she's a lot hotter in my memory than in this actual movie. Maybe she was better-presented in the next movies of hers that I saw after this.

People who spend time writing carefully about themselves become happier, less anxious and depressed and physically healthier. They become more productive, persistent and engaged in life. This is because thinking about where you came from, who you are and where you are going helps you chart a simpler and more rewarding path through life.
Just tinkering with a perspective that bounced around my head just now.
There are two frames of mind when doing paired martial arts training.
Permission is "softer", and honesty is "harder". Both of these things are important, and both pose problems.
A multiplayer, text, third-person shooter originally made for DOS, but I know it from Novell Netware.
I had a hell of a lot of fun with it. Perhaps it's nostalgia which makes me stay so fond of it, but I think the fundamental gameplay still holds up today. I could easily imagine a great updated version of this but I have and still do see this same gameplay in all sorts of other top-down games.
A man wakes up naked with amnesia and seeks out his fiance from years ago.
Not great and not recommended. It's got a shaky story and a weakly-portrayed world. Both the movie's world and the film quality are particularly low. Its acting and speech are stiff.
In English, the title is Secret Wedding.
