I'll never forget seeing this in a theater up in Seattle when it first came out. I was twenty years old and broke for any nihilistic, artsy vampire movie a director could throw out there. Nadja came out the year before and set the stage for my 'black and white philosophical vampire' interest.
When we saw the trailer for this, it was easy math. Over the years, I've probably seen it a dozen times. It was hard to get my hands on a copy but I finally got an import of it on DVD. Recently, it popped up on iTunes but only for rent and tonight, I watched it on Starz.
All around, it's one of my favorite bizarre vampire movies and I recommend it.
I picked this game up when it first came out and I have no idea why I stopped. The best part is I was on the second to the last level in the game when I did. It's a shame because I had an absolute blast revisiting and completing this title. So much so I would recommend it without question.
This is a semi-open world game where you can take care of your objectives many different ways. You can sneak around, ensuring you're never caught and don't take out anyone. You can go in like Conan, swinging a sword like a maniac and fighting everyone who gets in your way...and then there are various story elements that crop up, offering you even more methods to tackle your problems.
All around, it's a fabulous experience that does everything right.
Coming on the heels of Endgame had to be nerve wracking for the folks making this film. I haven't gone back to the theater to see a movie twice in a long time but I did with Endgame. It was fantastic. So Spider Man had some hype to live up to...like flipping to the next book in a series the second you finished to see what's changed.
I'm happy to say that most of the questions I had from Endgame did get answered here. I don't necessarily believe that it deserved 92%...I'd have been more inclined to the mid to high 80s myself, I still had a great time and it was an appropriate transition from what came before.
