I wasn't much of a Blade fan, or big on the whole 'vampire' thing. Just because I am just too sick and tired of all of them. There's nothing new, and nothing different in any of them. This...this was completely different than some of those other vampire movies. I never knew that Blade was originally a Marvel comic book. I never researched the character for that information. I just never knew, until my dad told me. So we bought the first two movies. I like them. There were few things that were confusing about it, but I rather not complain most about it. But just to let you know what I thought was confusing, is when Deacon Frost (Stephen Dorff) is out in daylight with Blade (Wesley Snipes). Is he a daywalker as well? If so, why did he wore that biker's helmet when he and his gang were out letting his boss burned into flames when the sunrise came up? See, I do notice these things. But enough about that, this movie had a great cast, and great director. But I don't know why there was 3 different directors for all 3 movies. Maybe Norrington went off to do something else creative. I know that Del Toro (Director of Blade II) went off to do "Hellboy", and David S. Goyer was the only one left who done directing in the past (He's director of "Blade: Trinity"). After all, he started this franchise with only a script. And he was great at it too. Heck, he went on to do the new Batman franchise with Chris Nolan, and look how great those turned out so far. All in all, this was a great movie. I know I have been reviewing most of my favorite movies so far, but that's what I like doing. When you get me started on reviewing a movie I dislike so much or I really don't care about, you'll start to think, "Oh, I shouldn't have done that." or "Jeez, this guy needs a life." Yes, maybe I do. But at least I know what I like doing, and I am sticking to some of my favorite movies for now. Until I review something I don't like, be ready.
