Blade I was good.

Blade II is the best of the trilogy.

Blade III gets too much hate. I enjoyed it. It is underrated. My only problem is they released the sh**ty Director's Cut on Blu-Ray instead of the theatrical version, which I winded up importing from Canada.

IMO the first two films still sets the standard for best third act ass-kicking setpieces in a comic book movie.

I never understood why so many people love Blade 2. Any action movie with wrestling moves in a fight scene gets a BOOOOOOO from me. The reapers or whatever were rad but Blade 1 was just such a good movie. I will say Blade 2 was the first movie I ever noticed Norman Reedus cuz I didn't see Boondocks Saints till at least 08 and even as Scud or whatever his name was you could tell he was a damn good actor.

Blade I is one of my favorite comic book movies of all time. Snipes is Blade. I don't think he can be replaced.

That was the plan. Marvel are lame for not letting Guillermo Del Toro use him as the villain in Blade 2 as they originally wanted to.

In the alternate ending on the DVD, Michael Morbius is seen standing on the roof watching Blade and Deacon Frost final battle.



It would be cool to see a Nightstalkers or Midnight Sons movie one day.

One thing I disliked about the sequels was that the end Blade fights were all pretty similar made them a bit repetitive.

Blade Trinity had some of the worst product placement I have ever seen a film.

Some Blade Trinity trivia

Quote:
An early idea by David S. Goyer for the film was to be set many years after the events of Blade II, where vampires finally had achieved world domination and enslaved all humans, with Blade being the last hope for humanity. Blade's slower aging could be explained by his vampire blood. The storyline was deemed too dark and was later dropped.
Quote:
Wesley Snipes and 'Kris Kristofferson', who at the time had become good friends after working on the two previous Blade-installments, were reportedly unhappy with this movie and with David S. Goyer's script decisions. They felt that too many new characters were added to the universe, and that Blade did not need any sidekicks besides Whistler.
Quote:
Wesley Snipes has less than a hundred sentences in this movie, including one-word sentences (which make up a majority of Blade's lines) and even onomatopoeic sentences, like Blade's "goochie goo" to the baby he saves.
Quote:
Stephen Norrington had at one point considered returning to direct this film. But he changed his mind after reading the script which he didn't like

Such a waste. It could've been a classic CBM trilogy.

They basicially used Goyer's unused idea for that movie, DAY BREAKERS.

I could have easily seen Defoe's character as Blade.

This reminds me that it's been too long since I've seen Blade and must rectify this.

It sucks that the 3rd movie was so terrible and that after LXG, we never really saw anything from Steven Norrington again. He's still out there but can never get a project off the ground

I think he actively chose not to do American Hollywood films after that.

I love the first Blade, dont get why people usually hold the second one as the best, I think that one suffers from its more "super hero feel". The first one didnt have that, it just had an "R-rated vampire action feel" to it.

The second one felt more like an ancient, royal, monster, and deadly vampire feel to it. Nomak and the rest of the vampires felt more like monsters. It feels alot like Hellboy 2. The first had the urban, hip, deadly, and dark/bleak feel. The vampires were crazy creatures that party all night, drink blood, and hide in society. Plus it was more about Blade than the second one. Just look at the trailers:

1 and 2 suffer from Bad CGI, but both straddle horror and action fairly well though the 2nd was gorier than I like.

I don't mind Trinity, but it does fall way short. Worst Dracula ever.

If Snipes can't do Blade 4, I want Michael Jai White.

I finally saw Blade Trinity. Meh, it was alright. Hannibal King I thought was too silly and depended on that Ryan Reynolds humor. Blade was still his same self. I felt that Blade should've got more character development as the films progressed. He was the same guy in all three films! But what else can you do with a guy who has no passion in his life but to hunt vampires? Plus, not to mention, he liked it, so it makes you wonder, what next? And his dark, humorous, demeanor, while I felt it worked in some scenes and the other films, was just getting old. "Drake" I thought was just a bad reinvention of Dracula. Didn't really care for the Nightstalkers or this new "hip" vampire thing they were going for. Quite frankly, I feel that one film would've cut it. There's really nowhere you can go with the character unless he is fighting more vampires, there's a team-up, or you have a fantastic Blade writer.

I hate the inconsistency of Blades aging. In Blade 1, he ages like a human. In the sequels he's immortal.

With the exception of some of the scenes from part 3, this has to be some of best grounded fighting in cbms. I really don't get all that pumped watching anything other than Snyder's action these days. And unlike alot of films, these don't need sound effects to sell.

If only red skull wasn't such a physical let down...

man del toro or Norrington would have been a great fit for TMNT.

It's pretty crazy that Blade is the first Marvel character to have a box office success, it was even before Marvel put their logo before their characters films.
