Down in the Valley
Being a long time Edward Norton fan, and an admirer of how great films are put together, I liked "Down In The Valley" a lot. But there's an inconsistency near the end of the film. Harlan is wearing a goatee when he lights a torch in the dark just before the final gunfights begin. A short time later his goatee is no longer there. Are we supposed to believe he takes time to shave it off for some reason between moments of being shot at? It's still a great film with a beautiful way…

Blade is a great adaptation of a not so great comic book character Blade. Blade movie setting is in a modern day city type where vampires are the "in crowd". There is only one being, half-vampire and half-human, that can stop one lunatic vampire from destroying the world in his wake, that hero is Blade. I love the opening sequence and that is my all time favorite opening as it shows what a badass Blade is.
