End of Days
One of Schwarzenegger's most underrated movies.
Over the top Gabriel Byrne for the win
Byrne's fantastic in that. Love the bit where he nails the wife and daughter (at the same time) of the poor bloke serving as his right hand
Even as someone who studied Wallace at school and knows what a pile of b.s. that movie is, it remains one of my favourites.
Horner's score is quite possibly the best I've ever heard.
This one is okay, but the clumsy third act alone (where Dollman pulls a cure for vampirism right out of his ass) precludes it from the masterpiece status people often attribute to it. And frankly, I don't think the movie would be as highly thought of it wasn't an 80s movie with multiple Aliens actors and a Tangerine Dream score. As far as 80s vampire movies go, Fright Night and The Lost Boys wipe the floor with it.
Glad it's not just me who doesn't get all the hype for that one. I thought it was boring as sin, despite the great performances from the Aliens family.
As for what I've been wathcing:Bad Boys for Life
Given the reviews it got, I was expecting so much more from this. It was OK but the first (genuinely good movie) and second (genuinely ridiculous movie) were far more enjoyable.Heavy Metal
Maybe it's just because I was heavily inebriated, but this was a hell of a lot better than I remembered. It's still clunky by modern standards and it drags a little towards the end (the final vignette, despite being arguably the most ridiculous, is also the most tedious), but nonetheless it's mad that this even exists and the soundtrack is ace.
