Who vs. Who: Blade (Wesley Snipes) vs. Vampires
Forget Eddie Murphy in the despicable Vampire in Brooklyn (shouldn't be too hard, right?). The only Black vampire worth a damn is Wesley Snipes's Blade, the martial arts practicing, bloodsucking quasi-superhero. He's no Bela Lugosi style vamp, though; Blade's presentation is equal parts Batman (black-tinted armor) and The Matrix's Neo (black trenchcoat), though slightly cooler than both. Yeah, we said it.
