The mayor thing is true, yes. What's funny is I thought for sure he'd retired but nope, he recently returned and is back to kayfabe murdering dudes.

I don't know Kane's politics, but he can't be as bad as most Mayors that Knoxville has had. My friend Madeline Rogero is pretty much the one good one they've had in decades.

The best part is KISS insisted that he be in main events but he was utter poo poo so WCW would put him on early and just call the match a "special main event". I feel like the guys would get a kick out of The Death Of WCW.

Page after page of tv ratings and live-event receipts? You can keep it. The last page inspired me to relisten to their No Holds Barred episode. Still a great one, even if they couldn't figure out that Kurt Fuller was an obvious Ted Turner analog.

Literally the only negative I can think about in regards to Blade II is the wonk-rear end CGI doubles they use during the wall of lights and final fight scenes. Del Toro must have had a boner for the technique, because also used it in Hellboy where it had equally iffy results.

Still, both the first film and its first sequel are certifiable classics in my book.

I mean, an obese, basement-dwelling vampire named Pearl gets cooked to death with a flashlight in that first flick. Should archive that poo poo in the Smithsonian.

It's a well made film of an incredibly bad script. I read the novel in highschool because "from the same author as Jurassic Park and Sphere, sign me the gently caress up!" and it's wayyyyyy more racist than the movie if you can believe it

it's Blade 3, also going to that one. Blade 2 was good! It's the third that's bad.

I rewatched Blade recently after like 15 years and it's fine. If it wasn't for Snipes it would be less fun for sure.

Yeah, I watched it again last weekend and itís terrific. The first 10 minutes setup the characters, world, rules, mythos, and hero better than almost any other movie I can think of. And itís all taking place during a terrific action scene so it really demonstrates how powerful showing rather than telling can be. The only thing that doesnít hold up is the wonky cgi at the end.

Blade is great, I can see why some people might not go for that late-90s proto-Matrix costuming but aside from that the only thing that doesn't really hold up is the CGI in the finale.

Blade 2 isn't bad but like a lot if Del Toro movies it feels like he had one idea he was really in love with (the super vampires) and him twisting an entire franchise in the name of putting that on screen feels way weaker than just doing an actual Blade movie. It also makes The Strain being such a turd that much more disappointing since he blew his chance at doing that concept justice.

Blade Trinity...well, that CGI eye gif is pretty funny, I guess.

I was/am a stalwart Crichton defender (lessening as time goes on) and oh yeah that novel is beyond eyebrow-raising. Very glad that I read it well after his better works.

I'm imagining him refusing to open his eyes for a couple takes and then the director whispers something to the cameraman. They do another take, the director calls cut, but the camera keeps rolling. Snipes rises up and takes a step out of frame without ever opening an eye.

well why not

All I remember about Blade: Trinity is proto-Deadpool, Bald Sexy No Charisma Dracula, and Blade being so low energy that it's just reaction shots of him going "Hnnnnggg" and arching that one eyebrow usually reserved for the racist henchman comments* WHM was talking about in Snipes movies. There's always the one.

* - Alternatively, henchman that appear to know karate and challenge Snipes to a direct karate fight sometimes get this look, too.
