Underworld


Was actually a very enjoyable movie. It didn't fully remove the taste of the summer crapfest, but I did enjoy watching it. Granted you have to want to see vampires biting werewolves to enjoy the movie, but it delivered on it's promise of cross-supernatural-evil fighting. I was slightly disappointed that they took the time to develop special bullets to defeat each (silver nitrate to kill the werewolves, and ultraviolet ones to kill the vampires) and yet didn't fully flush out some of the armed violence scenes. But it did mean that the few bits of supernatural violence that occurred were special and hit you all the harder.
Naturally the plot was not the selling point of the movie, but there was a little mythology thrown in during the talking scenes which helped them out some, but not nearly as much as the corny lines that were delivered by the sacraficial stupid male scheming for control.
And I had forgotten how much I love to look at skin-tight black plastic clothing, and corsets. And together, they are simply amazing.
