    when watched : just finished
    recomendation: :eh?: :crazy: :))
    meh ... i didn't really have many chuckles
    I like Jack Black, but I just didn't find this all that funny
    it had more of an inspiration feel to it, and not much of one

    I say : overhyped

    It's definitely one of those series that have hung on entirely too long. They should have stopped after two (apparently, that's what the Wayans Bros. wanted), but they kept going.

    my recommendation : :thumb: :pop: :flamegun:

    I liked Underworld ... I liked Evolution slightly better
    I guess you gotta be a sci-fi / undead fan
    i'd prefer it over ,say, Bram Stoker's Dracula

    assuming the fourth was like the third(which is what i heard) it wont measure up to the first one. especially when you take into account that the first one was rated R and they could do more in it.

    well, the 4th was far better than the 2nd ... for what it's worth

    I liked Underworld as a "guilty pleasure" flick.. You gotta admit though that vampires and werewolves battling it out with machineguns is simply preposterous...
    Fair enough that you liked it, but Evolution to me was a total turdlet. Any redeeming value of the first one was lost here - though neither were as utterly stupid as Van Helsing (shame on Universal for selling out their entire legendary horror franchise in one movie)

    Take away Keanu's pathetic acting as Johnathan Harker and Bram Stoker's Dracula was infinitely better than the Underworld franchise. Gary Oldman was outstanding and the story is obviously the real deal. Coppola is a pretty OK director y'know..

    The best vampire movie of recent times is Interview With the Vampire hands down. I'll still take Lugosi or Chris Lee oldies as all time bests..

    Don't even know what movies you're on about, but if it's a 4th it can't be good (James Bond maybe).
    PS I'm not singling Puck out :)) - just responding to the individual posts..

    yeah, I might've been caught up in the production value of the blu-ray transfer. it kept my attention throughout regardless
    for what its worth, I did like Interview-Vampire
