Okay, I might get flamed for this one suggestion... but I'll go for it. It's been one of my personal faves for years.

John Badham's 1979 version of Dracula starring Frank Langella, Kate Nelligan and Lawrence Olivier (as a brilliant Van Helsing.)

It's right up there with the original Nosferatu (although the late 70s remake by Murnau blew.) Lush, opulent and engaging. But if this guy picks Blade and Underworld as good films, oy vey.

Love your tag line--my favorite line from "Blade Runner."

But, pardon me for being tacky, isn't it actually "gate"...being a reference (Tannhäuser Gate) to the Gate to Heaven in Tannhäuser (this line in "Androids Dream..." beautifully written by Philip Dick IMO)?
