I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, daytime TV sucks ass. :evil:
I did get to catch the end of Formula 51, which is a good thing because I really like Samuel L. Jackson, and I was pleasantly surprised to see two British actors I liked in it as well. (and it has Meatloaf … who doesn’t like freakin’ Meatloaf?)
Anyways, I acquired yet another vampire movie over the weekend. I sat down and watched both The Forsaken and Dracula 3000. I slept through The Forsaken when I tried to watch it last week … bad sign. Its premise is that vampirism is caused by a virus — been done before, and by a much better movie. I knew it would be bad when in the first 30 seconds, all you see are blood and boobs. Actually, that sums up the movie really well: blood and boobs. You didn’t miss much. I would expect to see it on Sci-Fi at 2 in the morning anytime soon.
Dracula 3000 was even worse. Pity … it had a couple of actors I really liked in it: Tim Lister and Udo Kier. I think my favorite movie with each would be 5th Element and Shadow of the Vampire, respectively. This movie had a couple of other faces I recognized (I think one was in Baywatch?), but don’t feel arsed to look up at the moment. In fact, let’s put it this way: the movie goes, let’s put Dracula (aka Count Orlock, *rolls eyes* so overdone) in space, being the last of his kind, transported from Planet Translvania to the Carpathian solar system. He bites Coolio first (oh yeah, Coolio’s in it too), then the descendent of Van Helsing *yawn*, and they all die. There’s no boobs in this one, so you’re not missing anything, trust me.
Now, I’m going to look for that bottle of NyQuil and try to find a better way to waste 3 hours while trying to fall asleep.
