Mmmyeah, I was forced to watch the first one, hated it, and I've been bitter about the whole thing ever since On a funny note of the day: my husband and I went to get an oil change for his car, and the mechanic said that he "looked like the guy from Twilight"... I lost it
I remember sitting through the first one waiting for it to get exciting. It didn't, really. At least as far as vampires at werewolves' throats go, Underworld is pretty decent. Maybe you can wash your mind with that.
