Underworld: Awakening

The fourth film in the “Underworld” franchise has arrived, and once again it features Kate Beckinsale in latex fighting against CGI werewolves lycans. This time, she’s been captured by humans and held in storage as a test subject for 12 years. After humanity discovers the existences of “Non-humans”, the people of the planet put their differences aside and join forces to “purge” the planet. Beckinsale’s Selene is fortunate enough to be captured and not killed.

Of course, she escapes, (it wouldn’t be much of a movie if she were in a cryogenic tube for the duration) and once again dual-wields her silver-bullet firing machine-gun pistols against the hordes of cartoon werewolves lycans.

Cheese, anyone?

That’s not to say nothing’s happening! There’s new movies every week… Let’s take a look and see what Hollywood expects to hold us over between now and Spring…

My Day at New York Comic Con 2011

Hey folks.

Back from my day at New York Comic-Con. Got up yesterday at 5:00 am, got home at a little after 1:00 am. I used my own car, two trains, a cab and a bus to get there and back. We waited in line for about three hours out of the day, sat through numerous panels we didn’t care anything about, but at the end of the day, I got to get Stan Lee’s autograph, I saw unseen footage from the upcoming “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance”, presented by directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, got to see an awesome scene from season two of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” presented by the cast, and got to see an entire scene from next year’s “The Avengers”, a full 6 months before it gets released.
