The 2016 edition of HesterFest, my annual Halloween film festival, is now underway. Here are copies of my live tweets from Monday night’s (September 19) viewing of Underworld:
- I’m kicking off #HesterFest tonight at 6pm CT. First up is #Underworld, which was released on this date in 2003.
- Welcome to #HesterFest. It’s time for #Underworld.
- From Selene’s prologue: “… our orders remained the same: Hunt them down and kill them off, one by one.” #Underworld
- These are not Bram Stoker’s vampires. #Underworld is very much an action/war movie: vampires vs. werewolves.
- I’d love to get me one of those vampire tomb manhole covers. #Underworld
- Kevin Grevioux, who plays Raze and is one of the writers of the movie, has the most awesome voice ever. #Underworld
- It’s a shame Sophia Myles was not utilized in the sequels. She’s really good as Erika. #Underworld
- Selene loves to kick in doors. #Underworld
- As an aside, the Blu-ray of #Underworld looks amazing and is loaded with special features.
- Hello Amelia. Goodbye Amelia. We barely knew you. #Underworld
- It’s a shame about Kahn. He was one of the good guys. #Underworld
- Viktor is such a bad-ass. He put Raze down without breaking a sweat. #Underworld
- If Viktor is such a bad-ass, what does that make Selene after she slices him in two? #Underworld
- There’s some killer music playing during the #Underworld closing credits. Join me tomorrow for more #HesterFest.
For this year’s festival, I will probably also watch Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. At this time, I don’t have plans to include the other two movies. Since Underworld: Blood Wars is coming out in January, however, I will probably have some special plans for all five movies next year. Those plans may include audio commentaries.
Until next time…
