Last year, I attempted the A to Z Blogging Challenge with young adult books starting with the appropriate letter of the alphabet. I was going to follow that same theme, but I knew so many of them would be the same and this year, I've been trying my hand at script writing - with fairly good success. So, I decided to base this year's theme on either movies I loved as a kid - or movies made for kids. Join me on a Hollywood adventure?

I admit, my "U" movie options were limited, and no, this wasn't a film from my childhood, and it's likely not really suitable for kids, either - but I couldn't come up with a better movie for today's post. Some days are easier than others, right?
The Underworld series revolves around a centuries-old feud between vampires and werewolves. It took me a long time to come around to werewolves as a paranorm. They've never been my favourite, though admittedly, Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater may have changed my opinion on that. Now THAT was a great werewolf series.
But vampires...well, they're a different beast. Yep, I kind of loves them. (Not so much the sparkly kind...)
That said, it wasn't the undead that turned an otherwise slightly cliched concept into a series I mostly enjoy, but rather Kate Beckinsale, who I have a huge girl crush on. She was actually the inspiration for one of my characters. Kate, plus some pretty good action sequencing, make the movies beyond the first (the best, IMHO) a fun Friday night treat.
Ok...you MUST have a better "U" movie. Hit me.
