They say third time’s a charm, but “Blade Trinity” challenges that idea with the most ridiculous entry in the popular franchise.
ABOUT THIS EPISODE: “BLADE TRINITY” WITH GUESTS LEX JONES AND MICHAEL PETERSON
Alongside NHE host Scott Murphy, we have a couple of great former guests in the form of author Lex Jones (The Old One and The Sea) and director Michael Peterson (Knuckleball).
Over the course of the episode, the three talk about how this was the first (of a few) Deadpool dry runs for Ryan Reynolds, the (alleged) weirdness of Wesley Snipes’ on-set behavior, and their thoughts on the comic book movie oeuvre of David S. Goyer. Plus they get into the movie’s tonal inconsistencies, how this might be one of the weakest showings for Dracula, and its troubled production history (beyond the Snipes stuff).
Elsewhere, the trio gets into 90s comics books, vampire mythology, and early-mid 00s hyperactive editing.
