Longest Head Fall Off Ever

Comments:

By the way, I just saw Underworld Evolution this weekend. I started humming "hello my darlin, hello my baby" at in the recap / flashback scene where they show the decapitation from the first film.

Too funny that they cut that scene just to the point where his head falls off.

What did you think of Evolution?

To be quite honest, I have no idea really.

I kinda liked EVOLUTION... but not nearly as much as the first.

For a sequel I felt like the story did a great job of justifying itself as a follow up to the original. It (the story) didn't have the same Shakespearian tones... which I deeply missed. But it still made a great companion to the first movie. Something not many sequels accomplish.

But what may have ruined the film for me was that... I don't know... I felt like the characters (except that guy who's name sounds like Tennis) were all very flat. I think they assumed we'd carry over everything we knew and felt about them from the first film... Does that make sense? A lot of sequels do that.

For instance, I hadn't seen the first film since the first time I saw it a few years ago and had therefore forgotten all the tension b/w Selene and Michael. So it felt like kind of a wierd transition when they got all cow-eyed with each other. I found that I was almost scientific about the love scene... instead of yay they finally hooked up (which would have made the scene more powerful) I just wondered what Mendel's theorem's would have to say about a vampire having a hybrid's baby (which shouldn't have entered my mind until much later on) (like in Underworld 3 in a perfect world).

I don't know. It could have been better. It could have been much worse.

By the way, sorry to be so wordy.

PS. Speaking of the HISHE influence ... every time I try to watch a Lord of the Rings, I keep hearing "can you imagine if we walked?", "It's so far!" and "one of us might have died." I think you might have ruined that whole series for me. In the good way (think Seinfeld and the English Patient).

I kind of felt the same way about it...in fact, I really think you hit the nail on the head why you said they didn't do any character developing! I just remember feeling like you HAD to see the previous one to enjoy this one, and that's probably why.

I did like all the back story and history in Evolution, but I really missed the sort of dark mystery that the first one had. This one showed to many monsters to me...and I really enjoyed the vampire lore of the first one over all these fancy hybrid monsters!

Anyway, I totally agree. It was worth seeing for me, but didn't blow me away.

"Hello my baby, hello my darling." Perfect! Loved it.

I just saw this one. Then I re-watched the movie's beheading. This short didn't get the credit it deserves. So funny.

thanks ken :) Underworld HISHE is one of those "you have to have seen the movie" to get it. except for the singing frog reference. that's just kind of out of left field.

The history hookah of computer testkings software is 650-177 most often traced back 1Y0-A17 to the first software bug  in 1946. As more 000-152 and more programs enter the 70-291 realm of firmware, and the hardware 646-671 itself becomes smaller, cheaper and faster 70-643 due to Moore's law, elements 642-504 of computing first considered to be software, join the ranks of hardware. Most hardware 70-648 companies today have more software programmers 642-456 on the payroll than hardware designers, 650-195 since software tools have 350-018 automated many tasks of 646-363 Printed circuit board engineers. Just like the Auto industry, the Software industry has grown from a 642-515 few visionaries operating out of their 642-873 garage with prototypes. Steve Jobs 70-236 and Bill Gates were the Henry Ford and 1Y0-A08 Louis Chevrolet of their times, who JN0-100 capitalized on ideas already commonly HP0-Y23 known before they started in the business. In the case of Software development, this moment is generally agreed to be the publication 642-426 in the 1980s of the specifications for the IBM Personal Computer published by IBM employee Philip Don Estridge.
