More Van Helsing negativity??? It's a classic!


I agree!

I've a soft spot for it! My mate took me to see it twice, of course he paid for the tickets so I wasn't too bothered. It's quite nicely paced, and Kate Beckinsale! My god she looks good in that sexy get up! I love the bloke playing Dracula (his name escapes me right now), I thought it was an over the top performance, but suited the film well. He's like the Tony Montana of Vampires!

There's a moment in the film, the 'ball scene' which I thought was very gothic and captivating, the music too. The production design was excellent. The make up too especially for Frankenstein's monster. But the CGI let is down a bit. Especially Hyde in the begining who looks like a CGI cartoon!

But I found it a fun ride. Action-packed, sexy, slimey - what more do you want?


Glad to see more VH love! I actually think the Mr Hyde scene is my favourite scene in the movie. I really love the look of him. Although he does seem to weigh nothing which is a little jarring.

This movie has amazing production design and great cinematography. The visuals are wonderful throughout and whilst there is a lot of cartoony CG, there is also a lot of really good CG.


Yeah I also love the opening scene too. Hyde looks proper insane, and I love the little touches like him stubbing out his cigar in his hands. I know I said he looked too 'cartoony' but on second thoughts you can argue that the fact some of the CGI does look 'cartoonish' gives it a charm!

I forgot to mention Dracula's three sexy brides because watching them strut their stuff, and menacing villagers like seductive/ scary sirens is part of the joy of watching this film! I love the fact their jaws distort and open wide to drain their victims blood! And their eyes when they change colour- one of my favourite scenes is when we see them for the first time, and when they corner Beckinsale inside the house.

Theres a lot of really cool moments in the film.

Not sure if anyone's mentioned this 'gem'



By no means a good film by any means - it really is a cheesy pleasure IMO
The film that made Verhoeven up sticks and leave Hollywood, it's shit but fun (although still not sure how turning invisible endows Kevin Bacon with superhuman strength and a supernatural ability to survive endless punches/flamethrower attacks/exploding centrifuges etc.)

Was also one of the first DVD's I ever owned/watched which could explain my soft spot for it (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it)

Not really a failed blockbuster though? As I understand it did pretty decent box office.

I like Hollow Man.I think because it lacks Verhoevens trademark satire that it gets a lot of stick.The fx were incredible at the time and Kevin Bacon was a terrific villain.

Just checked Box Office Mojo &, yep, it did a pretty good B.O.- $190m worldwide against $95m cost - I'd always got the impression it was a bit of a flop.

Bacon makes everything better.

Anyway, I quite like Van Helsing aswell. It's an entertaining enough flick to stick on if your bored. If the CG was claymation instead it would be much better.

Uma Thurman's tits in Baron Munchausen?! Wasn't that flick a PG?! I really don't remember there being tits in it!

You see them, breifly. You are allowed breasts in a PG if it is not in a sexual manner and it is very brief. For a better look at Uma's breasts watch Dangerous Liaisons or at the very least the video of that scene online. Just ignore the fact that John Malkovich is in the scene too.

I liked it. I liked John Carter too. Didn't think it was amazing but I don't think it deserved all the hatred it got.


The best movie to get a load of Uma's tits is Mad Dog and Glory!

I really like this film! I still own the special edition director's cut on DVD - a gem in my collection

The concept is quite cool, the fact that Bacon's character can do any shit he want's when invisible. I think the film should've explored that more. The last 15 mins is a bit of a let down, especially when Bacon is badly burnt, but he still woudn't die! (The attack of the crispy Bacon!) but I thought it was an enjoyable movie. Maybe weakest of Verhoeven's film's (especially amongst his masterful sci-fi films) but miles better than fucking Showgirls!

Strange Days (1995) by Kathryn Bigelow came to my mind. Love that movie, way ahead of it's time!

I've still not seen Strange Days! I do need to get round to it.

For my money the best failed blockbuster of the year is:





In fact best movie of the year period. Man i love Battleship so much

Battleship is a good one. What do you guys think about 'Sucker Punch'? The cinematography and music were kickass too!

Was Sucker Punch a failure at the Box Office? I would of thought it did okay, seeing as its directed by Zack 'Slo-mo' Synder! Whose previous films 300 and Dawn of the Dead (was is Dawn? I forgot!) were hits, but then again Watchmen didn't do to well.

Yes Sucker Punch was a failure at the box office and it was shit.Zack Snyder is a good visual director but that film proves he should not be allowed to write anything ever again.

I think the issue with Hollow Man was that some thought it over steped the mark and became too sleazy and a bit too creepy for what was supposed to be a main stream film. I can't comment as I have not seen it.

Strange Days is an underrated gem I agree.

Oh - thats news to me 'cos I thought it did okay. But I guess you may be right (i've yet to watch it myself) but heard a lot of negatives written about it. He is a good visual director I agree - his CGI effort - The Legend of the Guardians was really beautiful to look at at times, and even his now customary slo-mo looked beautiful. And Watchmen was maybe not the film I envisioned it would be (i'm a huge fan of the comic), namely some poor acting choices - but one thing you can't deny is that the whole thing looked really pretty.

If you haven't watched it yet then its worth a look. Its not that bad! It doesn't help though that Bacon's character is rather unlikeable from the begining.

Strange Days is a film I haven't seen for a long time now. I think its time for a re-watch.

Body Double? I heard that it was a commercial failure when it came out, probably because it was WAY ahead of it's time (1984). It has, however, developed a cult following with time.

Interestingly, these all have a common connection... Robert Downey Junior then went on to be masive again with Iron Man and Shane Black is directing its threequel. Scarlett Johanesson is now huge and of course plays Black Widow in Iron Man 2 and The Avengers. Joss Whedon went on to write and direct The Avengers. And Chris Evans now plays Captain America!

Giving this a bump to mention one of the best films of last year, which was also one of the most enjoyable blockbusters of the last decade and a film that, in an ideal world, would have kickstarted a franchise. It can only be The Lone Ranger!




I can think of very few films I've enjoyed quite so much as the cinema. Hearing that it's the third biggest money loser in film history makes me sad.

Films such as that and Near Dark prove that Bigelow did plenty of good work before Hollywood finally woke up to her talents.

Absolutely with you on this Gimli. Pretty much my favourite movie from last year, i love everything about it and class it as pretty much perfect summer entertainment. Can't believe it's the third biggest money loser in history. Mind you it did lose a ton so i guess i shouldn't be surprised.

The train finale is the best action sequence ever, when the music kicks in etc. it's just brilliant entertainment.

Well if you've seen Pirates of the Caribbean, the tone is very similar. Not wanting to watch a movie due to the running time is crazy though.

I don't mean I didn't watch it because it has a long running time. The film just looks boring to me (I don't like POTC btw ) and because it' so long it is less likely that I'll give it a shot.

Another film I liked that (I believe) wasn't really a success at the box office was Gangster Squad. It wasn't a great movie but still a fun watch IMO.

I wouldn't go so far as to say the train sequence is the best action scene ever, but it is bloody awesome. Just so much fun to watch.


I'm planning on watching Sahara and John Carter this week, two films that pretty much sum up this thread and two films I absolutely love. I still think Sahara is Matthew McConaughey's best film

Maybe i was a bit hyperbolic then, it's in my top 10 action scenes for sure.

Sahara and John Carter sounds like a great double bill mate, enjoy!
