Watched the first Blade movie with Wesley Snipes last night, I may have seen it once before I can't quite remember but that was a very fun movie. Was kind of disappointed in the second film by comparison even though everyone says it was better.

The Women (1939)

Popular movie in it's day. Had many of Hollywood's most well regarded actresses of the time. Imagine, a 1939 version of The Real Housewives of . . . and you have this film. Rich women with nothing better to do than mind each other's business, and trying to steal each other's rich husbands. Film is a bit over long as they inserted an overly long color section of a fashion show in the middle of the film. Some pretty good catty dialogue, including the famous Joan Crawford line "There's a name for you ladies, but it isn't used in high society... outside of a kennel!"

Cry of The Banshee (1970)

AIP was trying to be the next Hammer studio. Lots of pretty girls and exposed breasts. Elizabethan witchcraft/witch hunter movie, a popular sub genre of the early 70's. Sticks to the 'find prettiest girl and burn her at the stake' convention of most of these type films. Distinctive, easily recognizable title sequence animated by Terry Gilliam. Well done for the subject, I like it.

Ship Ahoy (1942)

MGM Red Skelton musical. Plenty of terrific tap dancing, Benny Goodman music. Uncredited singing appearance by a very young Frank Sinatra. Nothing new for Skelton's typical 1940's schtick, a bit better than some of his other films from the period.

--Two rather lackluster attempts at camp comedy:

Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine (1965)

Vincent Price is a mad doctor who creates bikini clad female robots to swindle rich men. Camp comedy, in that 1960's Batman style, does not hold up well today. More of a vehicle to further pop star Frankie Avalon's acting career. Probably didn't help much. Not much going for this; pass.

Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs (1966)

Badly dubbed Italian made sequel to the above movie. Pretty poor film fails on most levels, which is sad as it was directed by noted Italian suspense directer Mario Bava. I guess camp comedy just was not his thing. This is pretty much a dud.

I love the first 2 Blade movies (the 3rd also starring a pre-Deadpool Ryan Reynolds and Triple H was garbage juice) and I don't think they get enough credit for helping the superhero movie genre bounce back from the disappointing Batman and Robin. Sequels always have a hard time following the first entry, I do see where the 2nd can be a little disappointing compared to the first one, but Ron Pearlman was fun in that role he played!

Had more the the lore of the Vampire world been sorted out a bit better, then I think the movie could've been better as well.

Very true, I expect the second one to be a bit better than it turned out I guess. I had a lot of fun with the first one and the second was weirdly less fun and more self-serious than what was called for.

I really wish Marvel would give it a go and bring Blade into the MCU. I think a Blade series would do well with their other Netflix shows and can really add a darker edge to the universe, sort of what I think The Punisher will add.

Ridley Scott is replacing Kevin Spacey with Christopher in his upcoming film and reshooting his scenes A FEW WEEKS BEFORE ITS RELEASE. Baller move but complete and utter madness. Especially if VFX shots are involved. If you look at the trailer and see how integral Spacey is to certain scenes it's hard to imagine they could be reshot and for the film to be finished in time.

Something like that is necessary with the allegations that are out there on Spacey.

Also, Christopher who? Walken?

I agree Evan. For all of the mess that was the production of this movie, I'd say the fact that it is watchable is something. There were flaws a plenty in the movie, no doubt, but I had fun with it.

They're definitely steering it in a safer direction from BvS. Almost turning it into something more like what you would see on the CW which may yield short term rewards but might wear thin after a while. Interested to see what a DCEU after Zack Snyder looks like.

I'm a fan of the CW shows, so it might not be bad for me. It will be interesting to see where they go as a studio. I saw some numbers from the weekend and from what folks are saying, the film looks to have not made nearly the money they have needed it to.

It'll make enough money and the profits from Wonder Woman will be more than enough for them to weather any storms I'd imagine. Also, Aquaman could be a medium-sized hit next year so they're not goners yet but have a lot of work to do.

Also, they're definitely going to use the Flashpoint movie to change Ben Affleck out as Batman for someone else.

Yeah, with his dialogue in the movie, and with how problematic he's become over the last month with all the Hollywood sexual harrassment stuff coming out, a switch in Batman would be a good thing.

I wouldn't be opposed to having instead of casting a new Bruce Wayne, to maybe take a crack and cast a guy to play the role of Dick Grayson and have him become Batman going forward. Bruce can retire and live a nice life or die a hero. Either way, I think Affleck might have one more flick left in him.

Or, another way to clear him out. Matt Reeves has said he's making a noir/detective focused trilogy right? Well what if the Batman gets killed and either Dick Grayson Nightwing or even Tim Drake Robin could work and try and solve the case? Again, a cool way to create a new story and establish a new Batman.

After much reflection, I'm convinced that Blade Runner 2049 is one of the best movies of the decade. It's the "Carol" of big-budget sci-fi movies. I loved it.
