Thread: Blade II !!!

  1. #21
    They need to decide wether they are going to roll the dice and make more than 3 movies, or make just 3 movies. If they are going to make 3 movies only I think Blade needs to run into the Grandmaster of all Vampires, like the guy tycho is talking about. Someone who is just super-bad. I mean the man who first got the vampire "cancer" in his blood. I would love to see Blade have to travel to an OLD OLD city like setting. Where the super-bad vampire dwells. I think it would be neat if this vampire did not surraond himself by technology, but used old Vampire stuff. Maybe see a vampire that has a very old army to use as a defense screen. I don't know. I would just like to see Blade end it in part 3. Maybe he can try to find something that the super cool Vampire has been hiding for thousands of years that he knows can be his downfall.


    Or there could be a super-bad Vampire that shows himself and thousands of years and masses the ranks of vampires up for an end all be all war with Blade.


    The possiblities are endless here.

    From what I've heard, the director wants Blade III to take place in the the future if they do make it. In this futuristic world, vampires would rule the world and humans will be like pets/cattle. A vampiristic twist to Planet of the Apes in a way.

    Hope it's not as dumb of idea as "Jason in space" for Friday the 13th part X!

    The difference between that and say "Alien" is that Alien is cool.

    When ever a series goes into the future...that series goes down the drain! I thought blade aged like a normal person, did they not say that in the first movie?

    I saw the new trailer for that, I am apalled Cyberkenetic Jason? Huh?

    Oh Blade - yes, I do believe he ages like a human, but a way around that would be easy to come up with (not necessarily a good way though )

    What is wrong with Jason in space, I think it looks awesome. I'm not even going to waste my money to see Episode II. While all you suckers are in line waiting to get your tickets, I'll be watching JASON 10!!!!!!

    The open skin thing is like an extension of the current piercing thing, "how far can you go" sort of stuff.

    As for a cure for Vampirism, Blade 1 achieved that for "turned" vampires, only pure-bloods couldn't be cured. That's another annoying thing about Blade 2, the blood doctor chick from the first movie (you know, the 3rd co-star in the film) just sorta disappears completely except for the EDTA (which failed, how lame!) and Whistler's cure. Why exactly did she stop working on the issue of curing purebloods and helping Blade?

    And that leads me to something else that bugged me about Blade 2, there was no sense of Blade's life-mission, he was just the head soldier who couldn't trust his crew. It wasn't epic, it was just battle after battle, it felt like Blade stopped caring about the thing he devoted his entire life to simply because it fit the plot.

    Hell, I even hated the new flak vest Blade was wearing, it symbolized the core problem with the film for me: it stopped being about function and was more about how it looked. The first Blade was about getting the job done as efficiently as possible because there was always more of the job to do, but when even the buckles on Blade's vest were big and flashy and too bulky for his coat, it's missing the core of what made the first one perfect.

    According to Blade 1, vampires still age, just much slower than humans. Blade adged normally though because he was a mutant, it was part of his trade-off for being a day-walker.


    If they make a Blade 3, it should avoid the pitfalls Blade 2 fell into and have a realistic enemy and a final confrontation that doesn't lead to "Blade's biggest battle!!!", we KNOW that Blade isn't going to be done with the fight anytime soon, we don't need to be jerked around with bigger badder missions and enemies.

    You are apalled just by the trailer? Its even more apalling watching the actual movie. Thanks to a friend, I got to see this movie several months ago at a special screening. To save you some money from watching this flop, heres a summary of the entire plot.

    It begins in 2010. Apparently Jason has returned from Hell and is captured by the Crystal Lake Institute. Due to his unique DNA, he can't be executed, so the government decides to study him for a profit. He breaks free and kills soldiers by the dozens. He is then cryogenically frozen with the only remaining specialist when he punctures the cryo tube he was tricked to enter. 400 years later, they are discovered on a college field trip with space marines (think Aliens). They are brought back to the main ship and are unfrozen. The specialist is saved and Jason is believed to be dead. He then wakes up and starts killing students. Meanwhile, the College Professor decides to sell Jason to make a profit. They discover the dead bodies and realize that he is alive and they send in the troops. All but one are killed. Jason then kills the pilots and destroys a whole space colony by coliding the ship with the colony. They try to escape on the shuttle, but it colides with the ship and is destroyed by a scared student. Just when it looks like it is all over, the Android student attacks Jason and blows him apart with macine guns and rocket launchers. A breach in the hull caused by the shuttle crash forces them to destroy the various tube junctions before they can be rescued. Meanwhile Jason is revived as a cyborg with the help of nano bots. The Android tries to defeat Jason again but he beheads her. They escape and the tubes are destroyed with Jason inside. From the outside of the ship he punctures the hull and gets back on board. The remaining marine uses a space suit to open the escape hatch from the outside of the ship while a rescue ship docks. The Android's head creates a hologram of Crystal Lake to trick Jason in order to by time. They escape to the ship and the marine takes on Cyber-Jason. As the rescue ship leaves, the main ship explodes. Out of the explosion comes Cyber-Jason, knife drawn, flying directly at the rescue ship.Before he can reach the ship, the space marine tackles Cyber-Jason and rides him into the atmosphere of Earth 2. They burn up and Jason's remains fall into a camp's local lake. A couple of campers decide to check out the so called "falling star". THE END.

    Thanks Lord Malakite, you saved me 5.50 that I can use to go see somthing with an original plot. Man, it's like they took Friday the 13th, Aliens, The Terminator, and Return of the Living Dead and tossed them into a blender and hit puree.

    LOL - right on, JarJar!

    I wonder, is there any point to any of the Jason movies? I guess it's fun to be scared with killer characters that "jump out at you," but Aliens has messages behind the madness, as did the Terminator films, and they can still scare you.

    Heck, Star Trek: First Contact did that, too.

    OK, so now Jason has had his share! What's next? Jason does a Talk Show? - That would be SCARY!

    Back to Blade, I agree with JediTricks that we don't always have to see the Boss-Man Bad Guy, bigger and badder than the last time, sort of like the way video games advance each level.

    But making too many Blade movies also cheapens each of them, if the series isn't handled very carefully.

    Anyone know how much (or not) Wesley Snipes likes playing this character? Would he continue the Blade movies?

    One thing this past movie barely took notice of was Blade's teeth. In fact, many of the Vampire Commandos didn't look like Vampires but only Commandos. Their unique powers and abilities could have been elaborated on a little more. Great: one guy was a Ninja. No! He was a Ninja Vampire! They could have made more of a deal over that!

    I loved this movie, but Commandos that can't go out in the sunlight? I think you could watch a Navy SEALS night ops movie and see the same thing.

    But my criticism was a minor thing. This was a vampire movie no doubt! And Blade II was a great job! I hope to see it my 2nd time this weekend.
