Blade

Dir. Stephen Norrington
With Wesley Snipes, Kris Kristofferson, Stephen Dorff
1998, 120min, 35mm

 

This inventive, super-stylized science-fiction-horror-hybrid paved the way for the Marvel-verse’s subsequent box office takeover and made Wesley Snipes the first black actor to anchor a mega-budget superhero franchise. He is instantly iconic in the title role, an avenging half-vampire “daywalker” who slays fanged menaces in increasingly spectacular fashion.

 
Blade II

Dir. Guillermo Del Toro
With Wesley Snipes, Kris Kristofferson, Ron Perlman
2002, 125min, 35mm

 

Guillermo del Toro brings a sleek, neo-noir visual flair to this hyperkinetic sequel to the cult hit. Wesley Snipes returns as the leather-clad, quasi-vampiric martial arts maven who this time around descends into a shadowy netherworld to combat a strain of nefarious, cannibalistic bloodsuckers. Mixing comic book action with CGI spectacle, Blade II is a big, brash B movie of the best kind.
