Survivors of an unknown plague hide in a bunker.
Survivors of an alien attack crash next to a prison and learn that the alien came with them.
This was my first movie with a shaved-headed woman. I guess I was all "oh no she di'int, now wesa gettin serioooos".
In my mind, the franchise was significantly weakened by this movie. It just didn't "feel right". Perhaps the previous two were so good that they became too tough to follow, but after yet another re-watch this movie really just doesn't seem all that good.
Properly titled ALIEN3
Waking from long hibernation, a woman claims to be the survivor of an alien attack from a planetoid which has since become a terraforming colony.
A direct descendent of Alien - (1979 movie), this movie not only builds on but improves on the movie, turning this into a blockbuster franchise.
A crew of civilians investigates a distress beacon, but it turn out to be a warning that they were too late to heed.
Alien is another "first to get there" movie which has set the bar for its sub-genre.
It has a dirty old-but-futuristic look to it that really stretches its technological and budgetary limitations. As it turns out, this has given the movie incredible longevity. For a movie as old as this, it easily stands the test of time.
Dragonborn-twins have drama.
If you like the others in the Dragonheart series, then I suppose this is worth a watch.
This has no relation to The Mummy - (1999 movie).
An antiquities reclamation rogue discovers an ancient Egyptian prison, and becomes an unwilling agent for the curse within.
At best this is an adequate movie. I could weakly recommend it for fans of this sub-genre, but otherwise give it a miss. It has a budget that's stronger than its writing or acting.
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.
