PRIEST, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller, is set in an alternate world -- one ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest from the last Vampire War who now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on a quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece's boyfriend, a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess who possesses otherworldly fighting skills. Written by Screen Gems

Phantom's Review: My Recipe For "Priest":
One part: "The Matrix"
One part: "Mad Max"
A dash of : "Judge Dredd"
A pinch of :"Batman"
Add in some vampires (the scary kind, not the twinkly, sparkly kind)
and a huge spoonful of westerns (spaghetti flavor)
mix together and there you have it :"Priest"
Actually I thought this was a very entertaining action packed movie. Ive never had a chance to read the original comic book, so I didn't known what to expect, but the movie surprised me. It was fun and enjoyable.
i enjoyed priest, wasnt the best movie but good fun.

It took itself waaaay too seriously to be cheesey. But it WAS dull.

Paul Bettany should never be allowed any leading roles. Ever. He just doesn't have enough carisma.

"Last Train From Gun Hill " (1959)
-Kirk Douglas, Anthony Quinn

Plot: IMDB

The wife of marshal Matt Morgan is raped and murdered. The killers leave behind a distinctive saddle, that Morgan recognises as belonging to his old friend Craig Belden, now cattle baron in the town of Gun Hill. Belden is sympathetic, until it transpires that one of the murderers is his own son Rick, whom he refuses to hand over. Morgan is determined to capture Rick and take him away by the 9.00 train; but he is trapped in the town alone, with Belden and all his men now looking to kill him.

Phantom's Review: Excellent western drama. Kirk Douglas is intense as the Marshall hunting his wife's killer and Quinn is superb as the man protecting his son, but sympathetic to his old friend. Light on action, but big on suspense, character and some great acting. . This is one of the greats

Well this was....different.

It definitely held my interest and by the end i'd say i liked it but i really hated the villains in the movie. I've always despised the evil religious murderer character who thinks they're doing God's will especially in this movie. Cooper was beyond annoying. The way he talked, that stupid little dance and everything he said made me want to punch myself out of frustration. I never thought i would see a more annoying villain then Mrs. Carmody from The Mist but there you go.

Funny thing is, even though i love villains (obviously) you're not supposed to. The point of a villain is to make you hate them and root for them to lose so in that aspect it worked. Although i don't think the intent should be to annoy the audience so much that they turn it off.

Either way, i liked it but didn't love it.
