day 207

movie: Underworld
starring: Kate Beckinsale, Bill Nighy
genre:  Action, Drama
year: 2003
format: Shaw Video On Demand

plot: A war has been going on for centuries between vampires and lycans.  Now, Selene one of the highest ranking vampire warriors discovers that the lycans have been experimenting on a few humans.  All the humans have one thing in common, they are the direct bloodline of the first lycan. The hope is that they can create a hybrid of both species. On the run with the human Micheal, she's now the target of both vampires and lycans.

This is the movie that started it all.
A combination of elements from the vampire games from the 1990's, and a straight up commentary on the history of race issues.

what do i think i learned from this film?
This is one of those times I'm honestly at a loss as to what to say.  I loved this movie when it first came out 9 years ago.  It's one of those stylishly brilliant movies that draws you in with the mood and vibes.  It makes you want to dress up and play vampire and werewolf.  But other then the obvious theme of everyone comes from the same biological elements; it's just a cool film.
