I do so love me a movie with a high concept twist. This one involves a group of non-too-bright bank robbers crossing the Mexican border to steal 5 million in laundered drug money. But of course none of them realizes that two of their partners are undead vampires who seem to care more about the blood than any money in the vault. As other humans are co-opted into this army of the undead we see a whole new dynamic develop. Sure I got issues with how fast the bitten guys 'turn' and learn all about their powers but its goofy bloody Nosferatu fun. You got Danny Tejo to also sweaten the pot. He just makes any movie of this type just that much better. I always get that 'jolt' when he goes full monster. The movie makers are obviously recent film school grads because the movie is full of little tricks, flashy stunts, funky camera angles and points of view. It passed the time for me.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
