Red Surf (1989)
Only for hard core Georgie fans
If you're out for criminals and surfer with great surfing scenes, then this is the wrong movie for you. Then better watch Point Break, which was actually made a year later and had a much more modern and tougher look. With "Red Surf", I thought, oh well, give it a try: George Clooney in one of his very early roles, but some of his mannerisms can already be seen, (and the DVD cover is deceiving by picturing today's George) plus his acting abilities especially in carrying a film, too. He even looks gorgeous in shabby jeans and a leather jacket. I liked some of the photography, the music score was quite good as well. The story hang a bit in the air, a bit lose, so to speak. Some unnecessary violence. The whole film seemed a bit undecided, too many bits of different genres: a typical 80s movie with party, drugs and rock'n roll, but not tough enough, and a bit of "adulthood" thrown in. Also worth mentioning is Desperate Housewives' Doug Savant, who brings to his role some depth. And, quite cool, Gene Simmons who adds a little class to this movie.
Blade: The Series (2006)
Could have been better
Wesley Snipes was cool as Blade. He didn't look out of place with all his gear. Sticky Fingaz is over cool, doesn't have much to say and looks/acts like a moron. Somehow, the Krista plot does not make sense. Marcus kills her brother, he knows Krista is his sister and a soldier, what else but revenge would she want from him, what else but trying to betray him ??? I haven't seen all of the series yet, so there is hope that there will be an answer to that. I like the Marcus character - he is well played by Neil Jackson. The "bad guys" are better portrayed and more "likeable" than the so-called good ones. Some of the special effects are quite good.
Although the whole series is a bit ridiculous, it still is entertaining and exciting enough to watch it.
