I can see why! its funny how some of the best Vampire movies of all time are ones that steer away from the mainstream/common depictions of Vampires altogether, its very refreshing to see

Bill Paxton and Lance Henriksen are the most notable actors, Lance plays the leader of the group of nomadic Vampires, and Bill plays the 'bad boy' Vampire that likes to cause trouble (and did he ever cause a lot of trouble! the bar scene was insane) it looks like he had a blast in the role. There are some plot holes, and some things didnt make sense, but I really enjoyed this take on non-traditional Vampires, it had a lot of suspense and a lot of emotional impact, I thought it was creative and really well done - 8.5/10

I saw this one at the theater when it was 1st released. Loved it then & have loved it each time I've seen it since. It used to be well known, but I don't think it is any more.

That is awesome! It truly is a shame its not more well known at this point, it deserves more recognition. There was something about this movie that really drew me in right from the get go, that doesn't happen to me with a lot of movies, I think after a rewatch I'll probably be raising my score to a 9. Im glad some of you guys saw this one, I was really curious to see if anyone around here had seen it because I enjoyed it so much and was curious if it was just me

Same here. Near Dark is a classic!

My wife and I hit our 30th Anniversary today and watched the first movie we ever saw together as a couple.

Crocodile Dundee. 8/10.

Really loved it, and seeing NYC again in the 1980s. I lived in New York from 1978 - 1997, and this brought back fond memories for me, not the least of which was that first movie date with my wife.

Now, it’s certainly dated and some non-PC parts would never fly in today’s cultural world. But, for us, watching it to reminisce about our early days dating, it was funny and wonderful.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

I liked this movie way too much. My favourite Will Ferrell movie to date, not that I'm a big fan or anything. Comedy-wise, it's on par with maybe Zoolander. If you're a long time Eurovision fan, it's 100% worth the watch. It pays massive tribute toward it, never once makes fun of it. There's plenty of cameos too. And the music is legit Eurovision sounding. The song finale would be a top 3 without a doubt if it were entered.

8/10
