Kate Beckinslade doesn't really kick ass in that movie. Anna being a faux action girl is basically the only thing that annoys me in that movie (although granted, it kinda makes sense in context and she still fares better than everyone who isnt Val Hellsing or Frankenstein). I'd say The Mummy 2 did the female co-lead thing better

>implying there's only one kind of asskicking or that she has to match the main leads in body count

wat

I also mentioned Underworld explicitly and put VH in my same kind of viewing category. Swap "Victorian gear" for "leather bodysuit."

Also, they made a Mummy 2? I was hearing rumors about a Mummy 3 with some Chinese dude but I know it doesn't exist. There's only the first one. Sequels? Cringe-inducing CGI of a wrestler? What are people talking about? There's only The Mummy.

There clearly is two camps here:
One wants a true adaptation and the other is fine with campy fun.

For me, I would just like to see what the first episode is and then we decide if it is good or not.


But campy movies are really fun to watch. I can switch off my brain and just enjoy the ride. hahaha.

@D9: There is a new Mummy film (2017) trailer. Care to comment on it?

Vampire Hunter D movies are better than Van Helsing, which wasn't so bad a movie either, it's great it involved more hunters instead of simply glorifying one.

though the genre really does benefit being more grimdark.  look how mainstream Bloodborne became, and people anticipate Bloodborne 2 news at E3.

the script for the Castlevania tv series should be solid.  but character design and other things are important too.
its very strange what angle they might take it, but if the look is immature, that would really be lame.

think it's gonna be tough for them to sell a story without it feeling like some soap opera.  both Mortal Kombat TV shows (animation and live action) are horrible following the orthodox tv show molds of characterization, storyboard, scenario and events.   they dont grasp the essence of the source material.

Look into the mortal Kombat webseries "Mortal Kombat Legacy" or any of the Halo web series.

Dracula was not always a monster. He was once a man named Mathias Cronqvist. A flawed, conflicted, genius of a man. How did the educated, aristocratic, crusader who piously served the church become a vampire, and eventually the Dark Lord himself, the opposing force to God? From a very young age terrors and tragedy shaped the man into the king of all evil. This is his story.

Ehhhhh, debatable. Bloodlust was nice, but I still prefer its original Demon Deathchase plot. Adaptation went a little screwloose in places.

There's also a very specific reason D gets glorified, though I presume you meant more along the lines of "show spinoff stories of other Hunters instead of always D."

I don't know how I really feel about all this, Yes id love to see an Animation Of CV. But id like to see a better cast, as most of
The cast is really not what id what to see for CV Animation, as what we all want is quality  Voic acting , NOT actor/actresses   that can do voice acting, But Women and Men who have trained for this very thing, ones that you read the names and Think
F***** yeah there in it, ok i'll see this.

But on the flip side it might be good... I hope it'll be good... please let it be good.

As long as we're talking about Vampire Hunter D in the context of Castlevania on Netflix, can I just say that if it ends up being half as well drawn as Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust, we'll all be in for one hell of a visual treat even if the rest sucks? Because Bloodlust is still probably the most stylistically gorgeous anime film I've ever seen, bar none. Your mileage will vary, of course, but I don't think there's a soul among us who'd call Bloodlust badly drawn. If we can get that level of visual and audio quality on the Castlevania Netflix, then... honestly it might not matter how good the actual story is if the music and visuals are up to Bloodlust's level.

I mean, I still shudder on this scene in particular.


And just the isolated audio for the soundtrack is chill-inducingly good.


I've always imagined a Belmont in a pitched hand-to-hand against Dracula atop Castlevania's tallest spire in a torrential thunderstorm when I listen to that piece, with lots of dramatic ups and downs that just force the movie to play in your head illustrating desperate odds.

Can we get Marco D'Ambrosio to do the soundtrack to this series? Pretty please?
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

It's up there. For me, nothing tops Akira and Miyazaki, but Bloodlust is in the top five for certain.

And now there is something animated to look at. From what I understood from the Castlefans group, this was shown on a closed press demonstration.

I'm liking this even though I'll insist this is Shovel Knight's Tower of Fate. Also, notice the use of CGI.

EDIT: False alarm. This comes from a Darkstalkers trailer and is the work of quite a mischievous prankster. I removed the animated GIF.

I agree too. Still looks cool though  :)

Ooohhh CGI...
Is this 2D or 3D animation or a combination of both?
