R.I.P. Gene Colan

Legendary comic book artist Gene Colan has passed away at the age of 84 on June 23, 2011 due to complications with liver disease. This man had a career that spanned seven decades, he chronicled hundreds of stories for both DC and Marvel, and was the artist behind countless huge heroes – from Batman, to…

Curse of the Mutants

One of the big things in superhero comics these days is an over-arching story spread across multiple titles. Recently “The Curse of the Mutants” was an arc that covered an attempt by vampires to take over the world, starting with mutants like the X-Men (figuring that super-powered vampires would make it easier to take over).…

First Look at the ‘Blade’ Anime!

Oh yes! Blade, the big bad vampire hunter himself, has gone from comic books to live-action films, and now, he’s getting animated! A teaser trailer for the upcoming Blade anime has finally been released, unfortunately, it’s in Japanese. Yeah, this badass Blade anime is being released in Japan, not the US. Here’s why – about…

Top 10 Grossing Vampire Movies

As you may remember, a while back I wrote about the top ten vampire movies, so you may be wondering why I am making another top ten list. Well, the films compiled on that list (see it here) were the highest rated vampire movies based on thousands of votes. Since it was based on ratings…

The Real Top 10 Vampire Movies

While scanning the latest vampire blogs and news I came across a list of the top vampire movies, and well, it was horrible (Van Helsing should never be on a top 10 vampire movie list). So I got my google search on and looked up other vampire movie lists, and of course, those were all…

Worst Vampire Movie of All Time

Those readers who cannot stomach the syrupy sweetness and sparkle-skinness (is that a word?) of “Twilight,” proceed and learn some good news. Or bad. Depends on your point of view, really. Suffice to say the tale of Edward and Bella might have been much, much worse. Some debate exists in terms of ordinary cinema over…

Science Fiction Undead

Go to virtually any bookstore and a seemingly odd decision awaits your eyes. Amid Biography, Western, Romance, Self Help and loads of other genres, two invariably get lumped together–Science Fiction and Fantasy. Yet as fans of either (or both) can tell you, many are the differences between the two. Why then group them together? An…

‘Blade’ Prequel Dropping Deacon Frost For New Villain?

When word got out that a Blade prequel focusing on Deacon Frost was in the works Blade fans everywhere were pretty geeked (myself included), but it looks like we may not be getting that Deacon movie after all. Due to legal issues the film may be doing a huge 180, going in a new direction…

Wesley Snipes Wants To Play Blade Again

Was Blade: Trinity the last of the Blade flicks or are there more to come? No one seems to have an answer to that, especially Blade himself, Wesley Snipes. In an interview with Deadline, Snipes said that he’s still interested kicking some serious vampire ass as Blade, but unfortunately he hasn’t heard anything about a…

Bad Undead Boys

Honestly, I didn’t like the movie “The Lost Boys.” Yes, the music and cinematography were both fantastic, but like too many movies then and now the lead character was boring. Since he didn’t involve me, I didn’t care what happened to him. More, the story didn’t feel like a story. More like a series of…
