What’s On Now NoW NOW??? “DAYBREAKERS” (2010)

***\/***\/***

Want The Tagline???

CAN DO!!!

("THE BATTLE FOR BLOOD BEGINS.")

!!! !!! !!!

Yeah…

…This Flick…

DAYBREAKERS

…Was MUCH BETTER Than I’d Originally Thought It Would Be.

I Honestly Wasn’t Sure What To Expect When Seeing It For The First Time.

The Cast Sounded GREAT With Stars Like…

ETHAN HAWKE

WILLEM DAFOE

…And…

SAM NEILL

…So That Was Originally The Selling Point For Me.

I’m A Fan Of All Three Of Those Actors…

…So I Was Rather Looking Forward To Seeing This.

And THEN I Watched It.

And It Was, As I Said, MUCH BETTER Than I Figured It Could/Would Be.

.Period.

It Takes Place In The Near Future.

2019, Actually.

The World Is Now Populated With VAMPIRES.

Only A Small Number Of Actual People-People Remain.

The Blood-Supply Of The World, That The Vamps Need, Is Dwindling.

So The Vamps Are Trying To Create A Blood-Substitute Before The World’s Blood-Supply Totally Runs Out.

TRUST ME, My Peeps…

…You’ve Not Seen A Vampire Flick Quite Like This One.

It’s Kind Of Unique, Actually.

So That Helped A Lot, Also.

I Enjoy Things That Are FRESH, And…

DAYBREAKERS

…Felt Pretty FRESH To Me.

It Was A SMART Flick About Vampires.

And I Do Like My Entertainment To Have Brains…

…Sometimes.

😉

SO, My Peeps…

…Why Not Give This One A Look-See, Eh?!

It’s Fun.

It’s Fresh.

It’s Pretty Damn Cool, Actually.

I Wouldn’t Be Watching It If It Weren’t Cool.

Well…

…I Mean…

…You Know…

…Cool In MY Book.

And My Book Has MANY Editions…

…And Volumes…

…And The Print Is Small…

…And The Chapters Are HUGE.

That’ll Do.

Random Movie Mention: “8MM” (EIGHT MILLIMETER) (1999)

**** ****

8MM

...Is A Flick Most Of Y’all Likely Hated.

Lord Knows The Critics Hated It.

Audiences Stayed Away During Its Theatrical Run.

In Short…

…The Film Was A Total Bomb In The Minds Of Most People.

HOWEVER…

…I Am NOT Among Them.

To ME…

8MM

…Is A Pretty Gritty, Hardcore Romp…

…And It’s One Of My FAVORITE Post-Oscar…

NICHOLAS CAGE

…Flicks.

(Which Says A Lot, I Think, Since Most Of His Post-Oscar Flicks Have Really Sucked HARD.)

8MM

…Was Directed By One Of My LEAST Favorite Directors…

JOEL SCHUMACHER

(aka Mr. I-Put-Nipples-On-The-Batsuit-And-Killed-The-Batman-Franchise-For-A-While)

…But…

…It Was Written By…

ANDREW KEVIN WALKER

(He Wrote "SE7EN", And The Screenplay For "SLEEPY HOLLOW")

…And Co-Starred…

JOAQUIN PHOENIX

JAMES GANDOLFINI

PETER STORMARE

&

CATHERINE KEENER

…Making It MUCH More Tolerable/Palatable.

And Check Out This Tagline:

("You Can't Prepare For Where The Truth Will Take You.")

The Truth In THAT Sentence Is True-True To Truth, Fo SHO.

😉

NICHOLAS CAGE

…Is A Surveillance Expert Who’s Been Hired By A Wealthy-Widow To Try And Find Out If  The Contents Of An Old Reel Of Film She’s Discovered Is Real Or Not.

The Reel Of Film Is Of A Younger-Woman, Being Brutally Beaten And Then Killed.

It’s What They Call A “SNUFF-FILM”…

…And The Widow Is Desperate To Find Out The Truth, As The Reel Of Film Belonged To Her Recently-Deceased Husband.

The Quest For The Truth Leads…

NICHOLAS CAGE

…Through The Seedy, Dark, Disturbing Underworld Of Sex And Pornography…

…As He Attempts To Find The Girl In The Film, Or At Least Find…

…WHO SHE IS…

…WHERE SHE IS…

…And…

…IF SHE’S REALLY DEAD.

It’s A Wild Ride, Indeed, And It Makes For Some Quality Movie-Watchin’.

😀

So…

…While I Know The Flick Was A Bomb With Most Folks…

…I’m Sure There Are A Few Of Y’all Out There Who Truly DID Enjoy…

8MM

…Just As I Did.

Is It “THE BEST FLICK EVER”???

Nope.

Not At All.

Is It “AS BAD AS THE CRITICS MADE IT OUT TO BE”???

Nope.

Not At All.

Is It “DARK, GRITTY, MOODY, BRUTAL, And DISTURBING”???

YOU BETCHA, BUSTER!!!
