Influences[edit]

Do we have any sources for the Influences part? Also, addressing those points, it is an ancient concept, particulary when it comes to Magneto and the XMen, for two enemies to ally to take down a third, Blade is hardly the first movie where someone breaks in amongst butt-kicking to rescue somebody.

Claims of Blade influencing the Matrix[edit]

There is no actual proof that the fashion in Blade , influenced the fashion in the Matrix. Who ever made those connotations, obviously is assuming here. Nor is the Bullet Time Sequence in the Matrix, influenced by the Bullet Dodge Sequence in the first Blade Movie. That form of Bullet on the Fly SFX Shot, is more inspired by the Bullet on the Fly seen on John Woo's Full Contact, along with various other HKAMs. The Bullet Time sequence in the Matrix, isn't some full-blown over-exaggerated version of said sequence at all. The Blade version doesn't utilize the same degree or anywhere near it, of technical computer imagery wizadry, as the Matrix does. Someone needs to get their facts straight before they say anything. i know this wikipedia, but come on people. user:celestialphoenixreborn

I got to agree, the Matrix comparison is very unlikely, especially with only a year between them there's no way an effects heavy film like the Matrix would have had the time to take the inspiration. They are also very tenous links as well. I'm taking them out. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Nightjim (talkcontribs) 17:25, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

I haven't been paying attention lately but... Blade is Jesus? WTH? Highlandlord 13:32, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

No, he isn't, but the comparison was apparently made between the two, which I can see. Blade being the one person who could save the human race in the face of the vampire threat. Shadowrun 20:01, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was move the page from "Blade Trilogy" to Blade (film series), per the discussion below. Dekimasuよ! 00:39, 16 November 2007 (UTC)


This article should be renamed to Blade (film series) to bring it inline with the naming convention pertaining to film series. Let's discuss. - LA @ 10:50, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Survey[edit]

Please state whether or not you support the renaming of this article.

  • Oppose - The series is known as a trilogy and to change the title of the article would make it less precise. — WiseKwai 12:39, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Support based on the IMDb usage. No reference is given for the assertion that this series is known as a trilogy. Physchim62 (talk) 11:56, 2 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Support - A sequel of films, directly related to the other, using the same name, not necessarily intended to stop at three films.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 17:29, 8 November 2007 (UTC)
The above discussion is preserved as an archive of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

Classification[edit]

Stop Calling Blade a Horror Movie. It is a Super Hero Movie, just because Vampires are characters doesn't make it a Horror Movie. Blade is a member of the Marvel Universe and doesn't belong with the Horrorverse. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.27.27.202 (talk) 18:41, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Reboot[edit]

Has no one heard the possible reboot? There was a time when David Goyer said that he wouldn't write another vampire movie, but eventually changed his mind when New Line was thinking about rebooting about a year or two ago. He said he would like to write it. According to a article I read, there was a time that Stephen Norrington was going to direct it but dropped out back in January to direct the Lost Patrol. Did no one know about this??? I'm still looking around if their's still any talk of a reboot... I know Snipes is interested in Blade 4, but New Line may have other ideas... Foretboy3000 (talk) 05:18, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

i think they will make some movie soon, if they doesn;t want to loose the rights back to marvel. Gman124 talk 16:11, 6 July 2010 (UTC)
