It's been a good few weeks for movies, with both Hotel for Dogs and Paul Blart: Mall Cop delighting audiences across the land. Expect another strong opening this weekend as a new vampire film hit screens: Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. The only thing more cool than a vampire film is a film with both vampires and werewolves * , and this one promises to deliver: "Lucian, a werewolf...battles vampire Viktor despite his love for Viktor's daughter Sonja" (interweb).
Chip: "This film stars Michael Sheen, whom the 'artsy' crowd may recall as David Frost in the recent Frost/Nixon. But I suspect his role as Lucian will allow him to better flex his acting muscles."
Richard: "As announced here several times, I'm still at work on my series of adolescent werewolf novels and have finally added a second sentence:
"As the full moon rose outside his bedroom window, Harry Lupus woke up with a very furry boner. He began to howl."
[*The only thing better than a vampire and werewolf film would be a film with vampires and werewolves and zombies.]
To the delight of geeks everywhere, Lost returned to television last night, promising to finally answer such nagging questions as "Why was Jack's supposedly dead father Christian wearing white tennis shoes during his mysterious appearance in Season One?"
Chip: "Anyone who's waited five years to find out an answer about a character's shoes needs to get a life. Go see Paul Blart: Mall Cop, get laid, play some sports, for goodness sake!"
