Release date: 1998
Director: Stephen Norrington
Best moment: Set to New Order's "Confusion," the vampire rave/bloodbath that opens the movie is stylish, intense, prone to causing seizures and features former porn legend Traci Lords leading a vampire attack on "The Shield" co-star Kenny Johnson. This is what cinema is all about.
Legacy: For two movies, Wesley Snipes' casting as Blade was some of the best in the history of comic-dom. He's cool, badass and entirely convincing, or as convincing as you can be playing a half-human/half-vampire palling around with Kris Kristofferson. The "Blade" trilogy ends up hinging on its directors and Guillermo del Toro > Stephen Norrington > David Goyer. This lacks the substance of "Blade II," but it's surprisingly rewatchable.
