Same idea as the general TV thread.
Wanna talk movies, but don't wanna make a whole new thread?
Talk about it here.
Just watched Underworld: Awakening.
It was pretty dumb. Also, someone everyone seemed kinda evil. Main characters included. Friday and I discussed it and we determined a few things about Twelve years in the future:
- No one speaks English anymore, they speak Cliché.
- It's trendy to drive the oldest working car you can find. So trendy, that no company has made a new car in the last decade.
- Evil architecture has really taken off. The coolest dude drives a model T-Ford and lives in a mansion that he modeled of 1984's Ministry of Love.
Also, Selene still has magic guns that seem to have an unlimited amount of bullets except for when they're trying to establish dramatic tension. Her guns have a good sense of this.
Movie spoilers, below:
There was a twist towards the end I did not see coming. which was nice. But it seems like the main cast just keeps getting more and more powerful by the end of each movie. How long can the keep making up plausible threats to them? TWO hybrids and a Vampire that can walk in the day and basically resurrect people?! Why don't these guys just find a nice quiet place to settle down so the rest of the world can decide it's best to note provoke them.
Anyhow, I'll grant freezing skipping ahead 12 years may only mean the movies take place in 2015 (the first movie was made in 2003, the second movie took place immediately afterwards), but the vehicles looked old by 2012 standards.
