Now that Trace has officially recovered from our 50th episode festivities, it's time to deal with an escalating vampire threat in David S. Goyer's Blade: Trinity, the whimpering conclusion of the groundbreaking (original) Marvel superhero trilogy.

On the docket: why is a film filled with comedians so painfully unfunny? We speculate about the origin of the feud between Goyer and star Wesley Snipes (hint: racism), and discuss the badly-aged homophobic dialogue, which is sadly common ground for mid-2000s action films. Plus: Ryan Reynolds and Dominic Purcell's bodies (obvs), as well as random connections to Scream 3, Charlie's Angels and The Matrix!

Be sure to stick around to the end of this supersized episode as the boys tackle gayness, body dysmorphia and Hollywood's obsession with Adonis beefcakes. It all gets a bit confessional, but hopefully it's helpful.
