Synopsis
Wesley Snipes returns as legendary vampire hunter Blade in this, the third film inspired by the popular Marvel Comics character. A fearless warrior immune to vampires, Blade (Snipes) has become a hated enemy of the bloodsucking community, and as they gather in their desert compound, a group of vampires is plotting to eliminate Blade once and for all by turning the mortal community against him. The vampires have concocted a misinformation campaign that paints a picture of Blade as a ruthless murderer and has sent the FBI on the vampire hunter's trail, led by the relentless agent Cumberland (James Remar). At the same time, the vampires have brought their founding father, Dracula, back to his undead state, renaming him Drake (Dominic Purcell) and investing him with special powers that allow him to walk unharmed in daylight. After a dangerous encounter with Cumberland, Blade and his ally, Whistler (Kris Kristofferson), form an uneasy alliance with a scruffy team of human vampire slayers, the Nighstalkers, led by Hannibal King (Ryan Reynolds), and Whistler's daughter, Abigail (Jessica Biel. While Sommerfield (Natasha Lyonne), a biologist working with the Nightstalkers, researches a scientific answer to the vampire problem, Blade and his comrades take a more hands-on approach against Drake and his minions, including Danica Talos (Parker Posey), Asher (Callum Keith Rennie), and Grimwood (Triple H). Blade: Trinity was directed by David Goyer, who also wrote the screenplay for this film, as well as the first two movies in the series. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Let's hope, let's pray that BLADE: TRINITY truly marks the end one of the stupidest franchises in cinema history. It's getting so that when, at the beginning of an action-hero movie, you see that bit of animation culminating in the MARVEL logo, you know you're in for a bad, boring, special effects-laden, low intelligence-level time.

In this 2-hour-plus endurance test, the bad guys discover the whereabouts of the good guys and try to kill them, and then the good guys discover the whereabouts of the bad guys and try to kill them, and then the bad guys discover-- Oh: you've figured it out? Congrats: you're smarter than the moviemakers. Wesley Snipes had better start planning a new incarnation before he gets much older; the rest of the cast dons "attitude" in place of ability--especially Parker Posey, who acts just like her usual downtown girl but with fangs (though Ryan Reynolds is cute with the National Lampoon-level insults, and his buffed body is swell to watch). And who ever imagined that Natasha Lyonne could become a middle-aged character actress so quickly?

On a certain level, the movie tries to be a critique of the Bush administration (really), but it's just too stupid to carry this off. (When a psychiatrist asks Blade who the President is, he gives a nasty, one-word answer; the city appears to harbor more vampires than humans, yet the official word is that vampires don't exist. By buying into this obvious hypocrisy, the populace is clearly going against its own best interests.) A break from the idiocy can be had by listening closely to the subsidiary players and discerning who's from Canada (yes, it was filmed there) by their pronunciation of the word "out." Other than this, movie fans, you may want to use that fast-forward button.

Eclectic Taste ~ Always a WIP

Such a lame title for a list, but an eclectic taste deserves an eclectic list. Be forewarned, I have superficial tastes.
