    Of the ones listed, I've only seen Van Helsing and Priest. I was not a fan of Priest because the story was barely there, the action was pretty minimal for a monster movie, and the main actor was just.... annoying. Van Helsing however, I loved. The constant scary action sequences and general setting were excellent for that type of movie imo.

    So, of these four, which do you like the most and why? I'm mainly asking because I'm thinking of checking out the Underworld series. Is that series most like Van Helsing, Twilight, or Priest in terms of action/story telling? If there is little or boring action, or a incredibly stupid story, I won't like the movie, which is why I'm avoiding Twilight to be honest. Underworld looks more action driven (The MPAA R rating helps), but I want to be sure.

    I really like Van Helsing. Only saw a little bit of Underworld.. I actually fell asleep during the movie in the theater >_< lol. Never saw Priest. Twilight is just.. too terrible for words.

    (Guessing you mean Twilight, I had no idea it had a dog)
    Technically it is a vampire/werewolf saga, and I didn't want to leave any out, since I'm asking about all the post year 2000 ones. Also, you didn't vote. Vote, now.

    I quite liked blade although I could have done without the third one. I did quite like the TV show though.
    Recently I quite liked Daybreakers if I have to choose a vampire film.

    Priest could have been so much more but I had recently rewatched equilibrium (also damn did that film's CGI age badly).

    Underworld- does the job and is one of the few films I can rewatch without a serious gap.

    Van Helsing- nothing special

    Twilight- I saw the first and wish never to see another.

    After this I am struggling to think of vampire films I like. There are some nice films (I feel I should mention The Twins effect, for the low budget points blood on the highway and because I find it somewhat amusing Lesbian vampire killers) and some nice anime but nothing much else.

    twighlight, coz sparkling vampires are badass!


    no actually,
    i can't get into details very much.
    Van Helsing, i really enjoyed watching this, i wish there's a next one.
    Underworld, i don't recall most of the movies, but i remember i did love it, the story was good iirc.
    Daybreakers, it didn't really seem that much big for me, maybe because of the lack of adverts here. but the story is good. maybe not new but an uncommon concept.
    Blade, only watched one movie but it was awesome. but not something i would go looking for. just my preference.
    didn't watch Priest.

    the werewolf.

    Um, An American Werewolf in London?

    I really can't think of like any seriously competent werewolf/vampire movies outside of that and the original Dracula with Christopher Lee.

    I like Van Hellsing cuz the main char is a friggin werewolf, werewolves pawn vampires, personally I always found a werewolf much cooler than a vampire. ^^
    Seeing as werewolves can live in broad daylight and don't have as many weaknesses as vampires, being their main weakness silver and in my opinion, werewolves are badass in general, I mean, they're still human in a way. xP

    I've heard that Let the Right One In was good, but besides that, has there been a good vampire or werewolf movie in decades?

    (Blade, while pretty nice, doesn't count)

    Didn't like any of the four mentioned, but i'd like to throw Cronos into the hat (by the director of Hellboy, Guillermo del Toro)

    Try The Devil's Backbone next. It's a good film, and better than some of his others.

    I love Underworld, the first one reminds me of an online game I used to play. :D The third one didn't really grab me as it's a different part of the story but I'm looking forward to seeing the 4th one next week, really hope they don't screw it up!

    If you liked Van Helsing then I think you'll like Underworld. There's lots of action and it doesn't take itself too seriously, while there's not really any joking around it is just plain mindless fun.
