Paul W.S. Anderson: the next Uwe Boll?
I will admit, I’ve never played any of the games made for Nintendo or PS2 or anything like that. In my mind, the title Castlevania is forever linked to the crappy Commodore 64 game. But no matter what quality the video games may provide, when Anderson himself compares the yet-to-be-filmed movie to Underworld, I’m thinking that’s an early sign of doom. The only good thing about Underworld was Kate Beckinsale in a skin-tight PVC outfit. And yummy that is, I might add.
However, he’s apparently also going to be making some kind of update to one of my favorite B-grade (Ok, more like Z-grade) flicks, Deathrace 2000, only this one is called Deathrace 3000. I guess you really can’t get any cheesier than the original, so more power to him on that. I often wonder why I like Deathrace 2000 so much anyway. Largely it’s for the lines, “…And Machine Gun Joe splatters onto the scoreboard first!” and “It’s euthanasia day at the geriatric hospital!”
