Hey everyone! Back again with this weeks releases. I hope everyone's week is well! This week we have everything from Vampires to Angels, Cops to Tidalwaves and then all the way to Robin Hood!! First up is the Vampires! (They are dear to my heart so they get first spot.)

 

Daybreakers

Earth's population is up against a vicious plague that's transforming everyone into vampires and draining the world of an increasingly precious resource: blood. Edward Dalton (Ethan Hawke) and "Elvis" Cormac (Willem Dafoe) must decide what happens next. As the human race count nears zero, will vampires feast on the few men and women who remain, or could science hold the key to a less destructive solution? Sam Neill and Claudia Karvan co-star.

Starring: Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe
Director: Michael Spierig

So I don't watch very many horror movies and I am picky about the ones I do watch they have to be basically about 4 different types of things Ghosts, Vampires, Werewolves and of course Zombies. Otherwise you can forget about me watching it. Ok ok sometimes good Warlock/witch movies are good too. That being said I did get a chance to watch Daybreakers and I thought it was a decent movie. I was somewhat disappointed because I thought the trailers made it look a lot more action packed then what it was but overall it was a entertaining watch and I would recommend a rental of it at least.

 

Edge of Darkness

As a seasoned homicide detective, Thomas Craven (Mel Gibson) has seen the bleakest side of humanity. But nothing prepares him for the toughest investigation of his life: the search for his only daughter Emma's (Bojana Novakovic) killer. Now, he is on a personal mission to uncover the disturbing secrets surrounding her murder, including corporate corruption, government collusion and Emma's own mysterious life.

Starring: Mel Gibson, Ray Winstone
Director: Martin Campbell

For what this movie was it was good. Not a original story very much one of those movies where you have heard the plot or parts of the plot before but Gibson does a good job in it. A great movie that this kinda reminded me of is Taken with Liam Neeson. This was not as good as Taken but it had the same feel.

 

Legion

In the wake of an apocalypse of major proportions, a motley crew of survivors (including Dennis Quaid, Tyrese Gibson and Kate Walsh) ekes out a living at an abandoned truck stop in the desert, never suspecting that the pregnant woman walking among them is carrying the Messiah. Paul Bettany co-stars in this thriller as the archangel Michael, who was sent to Earth to steer humankind away from darkness and toward the light.

Starring: Paul Bettany, Dennis Quaid
Director: Scott Charles Stewart

I wanted to see this but had no time. The cast looks solid but from what I heard from co-workers it was somewhat disappointing. I will have to take time to watch it later and let you all know what I think. Also, if any of you have seen it please feel free to post your reviews. They are always helpful.
