Underworld Schmunderworld

Back from a trip to see "Underworld," the movie that had White Wolf's knickers in a twist over possible copyright infringement. It was flatly awful. Laugh-out-loud awful. Painful. But I'm still not convinced anyone was actionably infringed in its making. White Wolf fans should stay away just to be supportive of the company. I should have stayed away just because life is too short.

This may have been the worst summer movie season I've ever endured, so it's a real comment on the awfulness of "Underworld" that it was too weak to compete in a field of anemic trash like "Bruce Almighty" (I only paid $2, I swear) and (God help me) "Terminator 3."

Next up: Pinning my hopes on Tarantino and figuring out what the hell the Coens are up to.
