    Just wondering, why Whistler didn’t stay a vampire at the begining of the movie. I know he was shot with the garlic serum…however….he was a vampire for 2 years????!!!???? Did he not fully stay a vampire because of the stasis he was in at the begining in the movie? Was him floating in the water slowing his vampirism down?

    Because I remember Karen(from the first movie) only had a few days before she would fully turn into a vampire.

    Or did Karen make the serum more potent after the 1st movie ended? Cuz at the end of the first movie, Blade told Karen to make the garlic serum that he was becoming immune to more potent.

    HELP!

    If these 3 were to battle each other who would win?

    It looks as if Nomak ripped his throat out, but that shouldn’t be enough to kill a vampire, otherwise Blade’s job would be mighty easy.

    amongst many other superhero flicks?

    Personally, I thought Blade II was the best of the trilogy, edging out the original by a hair. I’d say its one of the better superhero flicks that predates Spider-Man. Probably one of my all time top 15 comic book flicks if not top 10.

    Your thoughts?

    I don’t feel sorry for you. You’re a vampire and kill innocent people for blood. You don’t get any sympathy from me and I couldn’t care less when you died.

    At the start of the first movie Blade is instantly recognised at the "Blood Bath" club and all the vamps circle him.

    In the 2nd film at the "House of Pain" club when Blade enters with the rest of the Bloodpack, no one batters an eyelid at Blade being there. Why?

    SICK of threads: "Bruce Campbell/Christian Bale should be in this!" Cue your witty reply…

    In both this and Hellboy 2 Gross’s character kills his own father and indirectly causes the death of his sister. Confession? Or just slightly repetative storyline idea?

    Blade really seems to completely outclass every adversary that he comes up against. He can take on a room full of reapers and basically it’s just a light workout for the guy. Even the Bloodpack (which have trained to kill him for years) doesn’t seem to be much threat to him.

    the only explanation that I’ve heard for how strong he is and why he can slice and dice vampires like a ninja on crack is that he’s a daywalker, so he has "all of their strengths and none of their weaknesses". But all that really means is that he doesn’t have a weakness to sunlight right? It doesn’t explain why he totally dominates every adversary in mortal combat.

    I’m not asking for "Blade Begins" but I think this series could benefit from a bit of explanation for his superior martial arts skills (like we had in Batman Begins). Do the comics explain the years of training or whatever it took to make him such a one man army?

    Hi,

    Sorry if I’m being dumb, and I have a feeling I’ll be made out to be, but I don’t get the joke when Rheinhart asksed Blade, "Can you blush?"

    Is it just referencing the fact that Blade doesn’t drink blood and therefore doesn’t have enough in his body to blush?

    I really don’t get it!

    Cheers!

    You have 2 great epic movies in Blade 1 and Blade 2

    then the 3rd comes along,and completely screws everything up

    I mean,B3 contradicts the 2nd,in saying that Reapers were not a mutation,but are original vampires,the reapers were interesting,becuase the Vampires had a new enemy,they should have kept them around,not just rip them off like that and leave them out,and it was just a cheesey movie,and last but not least,Triple H was in it,you know a movie is going to suck that a wrestler is in(with the exception of some of the Rocks movies),and the Drake charachter was also stupid,I cant believe that Wesley Snipes even wanted to be apart of the abomination that is Blade 3,its obvios that they didnt take the movie seriosly,and it ticks me off,cuase Blade could have been one of the better trilogies of all time,but now its not,Blade 3 has to be one of the worst 3rd movies of all time,and one of the worst movies all time period,I wish they didnt call it Blade 3,they should have called it "POS 3"!!!

    now I can only enjoy the first 2,if I forget the 3rd one exists

    so back to my question, did Blade 3,ruin the Blade movies ?

    Spoiler

    Right before he tried to kill Blade and then Blade stopped the sword. Something about his dad also said..and then it stopped.

    Any ideas. I hate when stuff like that happens, just like I wanted to know what lie the Joker was going to tell Batman in The Dark Knight. lol

    Personally, while I liked Blade 2, I thought it couldn’t hold a candle to the original Blade film. And don’t get me started on Trinity. Anyway, to the people that like this over the original Blade film: please explain to me why. I seriously would like to know.

    A long four years after the landmark, original "Blade," the sequel finally made its way to theaters, under the direction of Guillermo Del Toro, a horror filmmaker best known for such "sentimental" foreign fear films as "The Devil’s Backbone" and "Cronos." He kind of flopped with the mainstream Hollywood thriller "Mimic," but really came back with a vengeance with this sequel.

    Although not as solid as the original "Blade," which had a better villain and somehow a warmer and more cohesive feel to it, "Blade 2" is nonetheless a major triumph, combining martial arts, horror, and comic books into a film that doesn’t let up for a second. Picking up a few years after the events of the original, Half human/half vampire/all superhero Blade goes on a search for his mentor, Whisper (Kristofferson) who was turned into a vampire in the first film, and somehow survived his own suicide. After dispatching about 20 vampires using his silver-tipped weapons, he finally finds his father figure and is able to somehow transform him back into a human being.

    Not soon thereafter, the two are visited by a team of ninja-vampires wearing uniforms that protect them from sunlight. The two vamps inform them that the Vampire Nation wants to make peace with the vampire-hunting Blade (known in their circles as the "Daywalker," because he has all the strength of a vampire, but can walk in the daytime) so that they can join forces against a new breed of blood sucker that has just emerged: A bizarre form of vampire that sucks on the blood of other vamps and can’t be stopped by silver. Suspicious at first, the Daywalker decides to go along.

    The rest of the film is an action ride that outdoes the original in terms of pace and bloodshed, but doesn’t have the character development or a charismatic villain. Stephen Dorff was wonderful as the narcissistic baddie in the first film. No one here shines nearly as much – not even Ron Perlman, as the member of the "Bloodpack," the group of Ninja-like vampires that Blade teams up with to do battle with the new bloodsucker strain (dubbed the "Reapers," pretty clever). Many of the other vampires Blade teams up with have tattoos and cool names like "Priest."

    The essential ingredient in any Blade film, of course, is supreme coolness, and "Blade 2" has plenty of it. But nothing matches the coolnesss of the first film’s opening, when Blade takes out a disco of vampires. Some of the characterizations seem a little flat as well. Even Kristofferson’s character isn’t all there in this one. The sentimental touches that usually embellish Del Toro’s movies aren’t evident until the very, very end.

    But, all in all, "Blade 2" is a magnificent sequel, loaded with CGI bloodshed, martial arts and electronic music. The universe that scriptwriter David Goyer has dreamt up – where vampires have their own government and even their own gigantic corporate headquarters, replete with helicopters and armed guards – is pretty *beep* excellent.

    Del Toro didn’t direct the follow up, "Blade Trinity," which was a big disappointment.

    I watched (again) the first and the second parts of the Blade series. I think the second part has many similarites with the first part, but it mixes them to be different enough, let me clarify (spoilers ahead):

    1. In the first part, Dragonetti suffers a painful death by being exposed to the sun light, one of the ugliest moments in the movie. In the second part, Nyssa also dies in the sun light, but here the death represents farewells, and the death is shown to be pain relieving, rather than the death of Dragonetti seen in the first part.

    2. The first part shows Blade in anger, after he realizes who was the vampire that made him what he is. He yells the name of "Frost", during the fight of Frost’s people. In the second part, Nomak yells "father" in anger, and fights against his father’s security only to get his hands on his father.

    3. Somehow the character "Rush" reminds me of "Quinn" from the first part. Although their roles are a bit different, they seem to represent same kind of threat to Blade, that is easily dealt with but has similarities in the humour side of these characters.

    4. We have another rave scene in the sequel, but again it works very well here carrying the action forward.

    5. Blade safes (kind of) Whistler in the both movies. In the first one, he shots him so that he doesn’t have to suffer anymore after the beating. In the second one, he manages to return him back to human. This somehow co-works also with the scenario, on what happened when Whistler first met Blade and taught him how to survive.

    What i’m trying to say, is that the makers of the sequel very well have knowledged what made the first part good, and used it in the second one making it a damn good movie. There surely are many other "connections" between these movies, those listed above are the ones I happen to remember. Add the hideous reaper vampires, The Bloodback, new weapons and lots of action and you have a winner here. Overall, to me, Blade II is a very fine example of how good sequels are made!

    Priest………barely fought back and it went on for like 15 minutes.

    i thought he was a vampire, so how could he possibly be coldcocked by a crackhead with no lowerjaw? or further more incapacitated TWICE with a simple wrist rebreak when jarko grimwood shook off a broken arm in part 3?

    Recall in Blade 1, there was a scene where Blade pulls over the blood-soaked blanket covering Whistler’s face. Whistler was bitten – and thus condemned to become a vampire.

    Blade hands Whistler his sidearm – you see Blade walk away, hear a gunshot, and the scene cuts to Whistler’s bloodied hand dropping the gun.

    Blade’s gun is filled with silver bullets. How is it, that Whistler is still alive for Blade 2? Did he not actually shoot himself?

    Hi everyone

    I’m doing some research about vampire movies in the 90’s until now.

    I’m really focusing on American cinema but I can look further ( NightWatch for instance).

    If you’re willing to help me I’d like to know what is (among the movies that came out during this time) your favourite vampire movie.

    Just tell me :

    which one is your favourite vampire movie and why do you like it so much, comparing to other vampire movies.

    Any reason is interesting to me (visual style, plot, violence, soundtrack, characters, visual effects…)

    I’d really appreciate if you could tell me your age too just to make some statistics according to the tastes of everyone. I will not judge you.

    I’m French by the way so please forgive me if my writing is not correct.

    Thanks
