In a world where viral research and development has gone horribly wrong you have the creation of a new subspecies of humans called hemophage. The hemophages have been changed by the virus and they are extremely contagious. Just a drop of their blood or bodily fluids will make others just like them. They are also called vampires because of the light sensitivity and elongated teeth that they have after the change occurs. That is not the only thing that happens to them, they have more sensitive hearing, enhanced speed, able to withstand more damage, ability to heal quickly and some are able to see in total darkness. For all their gifts, though, they are set to expire with a very hard expiration date. They die within 12 years to the day of their infection as well as regular transfusions of blood, if they are not killed first. That is the world that the film UltraViolet is set in.

This is one of the more interesting renditions of a classic tale that has been told so far. So what if it has flying ships and the fantastical works of Leonardo De Vinci and starts in Venice instead of France. It is a fun film to watch with some of the actors and actresses that we have come to love, playing characters that we wouldn’t expect them to play. You really wont care if your favorite is playing the bad guy or the bad girl, they are great in just about any film that they show up in.
It is a time of unrest where a young inexperienced King Louis XIII of France (Freddie Fox) is ruling a vast empire with his arranged bride Queen Anne (Juno Temple) who he doesn’t even know how to talk to. With no concept of leadership he has to rely on the guidance and advice from that of Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz). Richelieu takes full advantage of this and makes sure his guard and not the Musketeers are in charge of security. He wants nothing to get in the way of him ruling in the King’s and Queen’s place. He just has a few problems to get rid of first. Read more...(684 words, 146 images, estimated 2:44 mins reading time)
250 years in the future, all will be lost unless the fifth element is found. This movie was another of Luc Besson’s triumphs, and it mots of great things going for it. It was the big debuts for the talents of the lovely Milla Jovovich and the fun-loving silliness of Chris Tucker. These newcomers were joined by veterans of many genres, Bruce Willis, Gary Oldman, and Ian Holm, along with other supporting cast members that many film-watchers will recognise. So on with this colourful story… Read more...(882 words, 106 images, estimated 3:32 mins reading time)
One of the hottest films of 2010 was Resident Evil Afterlife featuring the talents of Milla Jovovich, Wentworth Miller and Ali Larter. This is the 4th film that Milla has done for the franchise and it looks like it might be more. I am saying that because of the way that the film ended but you will just have to see the film yourself to know exactly what I mean. I will tell you this though, make sure that you keep watching when the credits start to roll because the spoiler is during them.
I have loved these films since they first started being made. Whats not to like, they will scar the crap out of you even when you are ready for what is happening. There are tons of gore, guts and blood all over the place, not my fav reason but it is for others. They are films with a definite plot that is thoughtful, suspenseful, trilling and even emotional. All of those reasons don’t hold a light to my favorite reason to watch them, I love to watch them because they have Milla in them. I don’t care if she has a bred mate and a child, she is one hot momma and a damn good actress to boot. Read more...(544 words, 2 images, estimated 2:11 mins reading time)
