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.

An old man is surprised to learn has has 19 year old daughter, who becomes embroiled in a web of vengeance and violence set against him.

I really like this movie. It might play out as too flat for most people, but for me the character was well-crafted and acted.

Like few movies, He Never Died explores age and power at its extreme. Fans of Interview with the Vampire (film), for example, should appreciate such elements.

A mockumentary about four vampire flatmates in New Zealand.

Bad. This is supposed to be comedy. I'm not laughing. From what little I saw, I doubt it will get any better.

Vampires and lichen lychen lycan werewolves continue their centuries-long war, but the werewolves seek to gain the upper hand in hunting down a particular human.

A great movie which would be well-loved except for the unexplained, unnecessary and horrifying coloured contacts and occasional plot holes. Oh, and a more convincing main bad guy. Hot actors and convincing characters.. that about sums up my expectations for bubblegum action movies like this.

  • I have two versions, but I seem to have misplaced one. =(

Blade meets other vampire hunters who are working against vampire plans to resurrect the progenitor vampire to try to make better vampires. Again.

A mediocre movie. For big fans of the first two, this is recommended. For people who found the first one okay and the second one merely passable, this can be safely skipped.

For fans of either of Jessica Biel or Ryan Reynolds, this is a look into their future movies.

  • Properly titled Blade: Trinity
