Thank you DALE!

RANT & REVIEW: Jon Slater
**Please keep any/all notes to yourselves for round-table discussion.**

Title: BloodRayne
Movie can be seen: Netflix/Youtube
Movie Synopsis: In the Eighteenth Century, Rayne is the half-human half-vampire Dhampir and the lead attraction in a carnival's freak-show in Romania. When she escapes, she meets a fortune-teller that tells that her mother was raped by the king of the vampires Kagan and she decides to destroy her father. In her journey for revenge, she meets Vladimir and Sebastian, the leaders of the fortress of vampire hunters Brimstone, and she joins their society. She seeks for powerful talismans to defeat Kagan, while the skilled warriors Vladimir and Sebastian train her to face the forces of Kagan and her human side falls in love with Sebastian.
Release Date: January 6th 2006
Main Actors/Actresses:

Kristanna Loken - Rayne (hot elf lady from In The Name of the King)
Michael Madsen - Vladimir
Matthew Davis - Sebastian
Will Sanderson - Domastir
Geraldine Chaplin - Fortune Teller
Udo Kier* - Regal Monk (*A return from Iron Sky)
Meat Loaf* - Leonid (*A return from Rocky Horror Picture Show)
Michael Pare - Iancu
Billy Zane - Elrich
Michelle Rodriguez - Katarin
Sir Ben Kingsley - Kagan
Trivia:

The half naked prostitutes in the scene with leonid are real romanian prostitutes. Uwe said they were cheaper to hire than actual actresses.
Jessica Alba was originally scheduled to play Katarin but passed on it saying it was ?too brutal.? (I guess having her in a DethKlok movie is out of the question because it would be Ultra Brutal?)
Rayne has a modern Tattoo on her lower back. (A tramp stamp?)
On the boat trip back to Brimstone HQ, Vladimir points out that if Rayne was just a vampire, crossing the water would kill her. Later on however, Domastir crosses the water with no issue at all. (wtf?)
Well Known Quotes:
Kagan: [to Rayne] ?Ungrateful bitch.?
Katarin: Your form is weak, lacking passion.
Rayne: It was part of my plan. I am tiring you out.
Katarin: Your plan is lacking passion as well.
IMDB Reviews: Man, this movie blows, 30 November 2005
Author: bjduncan25 from Austin, Texas
I almost forgot that I had seen this a month ago. I remember being excited more for the fact that Uwe Boll was in attendance so I could hear what he had to say about film-making.

Well, let's say his comments before and after the movie are revelations as to why he makes such crappy films. First off, he can't grasp why people savage his movies so much. He feels that the internet community gives him a hard time because he's German and he makes his ?movies with Nazi money? (his quote, not mine. Of course, he was joking, right?) Secondly, he couldn't care less if the actors he has are right for the roles. In fact, finding actors is his last thing he does to secure financing for his films. Apparently, he thinks the story is strong enough to carry the film. So, this is why we end up with actors like Ben Kinglsey working alongside Michael Madsen. Really, the only thing they had was the time to do the movie and the earning of a paycheck. So, if this doesn't strike you as soulless film-making, I don't know what does. In essence, by waiting until the last possible moment to hire actors, he can make his movies with a secured budget.

The reason why I write this is because I heard his new "epic" In the Name of the King will be a four hour film split in half like Kill Bill. This depressed me to no end. Uwe Boll really is the next Ed Wood, even though Ed Wood cared about his actors and films.

TITO RATINGS (out of 10):
Jared A:   1/10
Slater: 1/10 - Why? Boobies. Nothing more.
Jared B: .5/10 - A phantom point for having ?The Phantom?
Raul: syfy has better movies .5/10
Dale:  0.5/10 - In The Name Of The King but different video game
CJ: 6/10 -because cj is a weird one
