    Anybody else diggin' on this? I've seen a few commercials and caught the 30 minute preview show on BET, and I think it looks pretty dope.

    Then again, I've got a soft spot for non-campy (and even some campy) vampire movies, and Kate Beckinsale is effin' hot.

    There's vampires and werewolves in it.
    I like werewolf movies, so I may go and check it out.

    I thought the commercials were for a Matrix-like video game, except with a horror theme and less plot.

    There was a thing on AMC last night about vampires and werewolves. It had clips from the movie in it. I think it was called FACT OR FICTION THE TRUTH ABOUT VAMPIRES AND WEREWOLVES. Did anyone see it ?

    Missed it but for sure I am going to see this movie....I guess the premise is Romeo and Juliet meets An American Werewolve in London meets Blade.

    The movie looks sweet, and yes Beckingsale is SMOKING!

    One thing I hate now is how people throw around "The Matrix" or Matrix-like whenever they see action like there is in Underworld. The action scenes existed before the Matrix. It's not like the Matrix was as originally as people like to think it is.

    I saw bits of it. I knew about the vampire types, but I had no idea there were people who believe they are werewolves. Or at least like to pretend they are.

    I have several Tai Seng videos. This movie doesn't seem to be referring to any of that source material.

    It's a useful and convenient short-hand. And, I'm not just throwing around the term. Underworld looks heavily influenced by the Matrix, from the wardrobe to the washed out color. The only thing that seems missing are cellphones and the green tint.

    I do think she's prettier than Carrie Ann Moss.

    Then again, I have watched several movies she's been in just because she's in it.

    Good God this movie SUCKED!!!! I wanted to see this movie pretty bad, it looked cool and could have been great. Kate Beckinsale is the only good thing about this movie. I don't want to give any spoilers, but holy crap this was bad. It will take me a while to get over this. I really want my money back from this movie. Just bad.

    I agree that Kate was the only redeeming quality to this piece of crap. Has to be one of the most unoriginal movies I've ever seen.

    Noted.

    BTW, my wife has zero interest in catching either RotK or M3:Revolutions. Maybe we should set something up?
