Something about a rape-murder and police that care a bunch about stuff and things.
This is just an extended tv episode, and a bad one at that.
A story about a man being a man.
A man, like all men, must "man up" instead of showing weakness. Not allowed to talk about his feelings, or ask for help, he is never diagnosed with mental disorders. When his wife dies, he is never offered and can't seek counselling. When he spirals into depression he cannot talk about it or seek help. When his disorders flare up, he again cannot ask for help. His bills unpaid, he's still required to suffer quietly until he is driven to suicide or is thrown into the streets. He can't even talk to his family. He is a man who must be a man.
A movie with no characters, no plot and no purpose. Though I wonder if it intended it, this movie supremely highlights the silent suffering men live with.
Vampires are real, and a secret council, whose formation is never explained, support a good-vampire on her mission to mercilessly slaughter bad-vampires in search for the worst-vampire who she was told killed her father.
For a while I was quite captivated by this movie. It was good in every respect, but it seemed to take a turn for the worse half way through, and just kept sliding. Overall it's good, but elements of it are too similar to other famous movies for me to really find it interesting, especially since those elements are rushed.
It's decent enough to recommend for a one-time watch.
- Properly titled Blood: The Last Vampire
- The opening titles stylize Blood as Bl∞d.
Based on the anime Blood: The Last Vampire (2000). Other media exist based on that anime:
See also Buffy the Vampire Slayer - (1997 TV show) for a similar slayer concept.
A princess, being chased by orcs and to be a sacrifice, passes through a gate into our world but the orcs follow her.
If this movie could be considered a B-movie, it is extraordinary. It's well-written and well-acted, and unlike Orcs! (2011) there is no comedy and I have no feeling that there is need or room for any. I easily consider this a low-budget A-movie. It was good. Very good. Not surprisingly good, actually good.
I don't know how strongly I can or should recommend this. My heart melts for Aleya, so I'm pretty sure I'm biased.

Contains no dragons or dragon fire, or all that much fire.
