Dota 2 Hero Feature of the Day: Banehallow, the Lycan
Banehallow was noble-born to the house of Ambry, the greatest of the landed castes in the old kingdom of Slom. Before the Fall, as the King's wants grew strange, and his court grew crowded with sorcerers and charlatans, the house of Ambry was the first to rise against the avarice of the throne. No longer willing to pay homage and fealty, they instead sent six-thousand swords into the capital, where they were wiped out in the Massacre of the Apostates. And then came the teeth behind the old truth: When you strike a king's neck, you had better take his head. Enraged by the betrayal, the king exterminated the vast Ambry bloodline, sparing only the lord of the house and his youngest son, Banehallow. Before all the royal court, with the disgraced lord chained to the ornate marble floor, the King bade his magicians transform the boy into a wolf so that he might tear out his own father's throat. "Do this," the king said, "so that Lord Ambry will understand the bite of betrayal." Powerful magic was invoked, and the child was transformed. But though his body was changed, his spirit remained intact, and instead of biting the exposed neck of his father, he attacked his handlers, tearing them to pieces. A dozen of the King's knights perished under the wolf's teeth before they managed to drive it off into the night. Lord Ambry laughed from his chains even as the King ran him through with a sword. Now the heir to the lost house of Ambry, Banehallow wanders the trail as the Lycan, part warrior, part wolf, in search of justice for all that he lost.
Lycan. 2017. 3/10☆☆☆ As a hardcore fan of monster movies I feel like I was betrayed by the title. Don't be fooled by the first glance monster fans, it's not quite what you think it is. I can't even say if Slasher fans would get anything out of this. #horror#horrorfreaks#films#scary#lycan
"Underworld - Blood Wars" (2016) 91 '
RATING: 6/10 🌕🌕🌕🌑🌑
The 2017 has marked a great success for several films, "Underworld: Blood Wars" is not among them (film produced in 2016 but distributed in many countries, including the US, in 2017).
It does not take much to understand why the film has recorded anything exciting at the box office, unfortunately the saga had already begun to weaken with the fourth episode and the need and the request from the public for another chapter it had decreased a lot, only the fans of the saga remained, but not everyone.
But as the film is really bad on many aspects such as: a confused direction, a nauseating montage, special effects of low-level and a script that adds little to the genre and the saga, and does that little in a trivial and superficial; although this is extremely evident, some of these problems have also characterized the other chapters, I can only be honest and admit that I was in any case liked for the simple fact that I enjoyed watching it, because the film, like the others of the saga, manages to entertain through the adrenaline action sequences with significant choreography and a lot of violence that leads to so much blood that, in a film of this type, never hurts.
In addition, after five films I must say that I have also been keen on the characters and the world around them.
In short, it is the worst, together with the fourth, of "Underworld", a saga that I would almost define my guilty pleasure, but it remains one of them, so always fun, violent and as ugly as beautiful.

- As escrituras realmente falavam a respeito de dois lobos que se levantariam no fim dos tempos. Porém, dispenso qualquer tipo de comparação com Fenris. Enquanto eu era rei de Arcádia, eu fui um lobo no corpo de um homem, e precisei encarar a desgraça de minha raça abominada perante a invasão das hordas de Lúcifer para despertar meu senso de humanidade. Por outro lado, Fenris sempre foi um homem no corpo de um lobo. Ele tinha valores. Ele tinha consciência. Ele apenas foi corrompido pelo ódio, e é justamente isso que me diferencia dele. Apesar de ter vindo aqui em defesa da minha raça de licantropos e indiretamente me aliando à humanidade, eu não disponho da mesma ideologia de nobreza. Meu coração é pura maldade. Eu não terei misericórdia perante todos os seus demônios. Minha raça de lobisomens de segunda e terceira classe exterminará seus seguidores, enquanto eu, o alfa da matilha, rasgarei suas tripas pessoalmente. – diz Licaão pondo-se a uivar em seguida para a lua cheia que inexplicavelmente passou a ter uma tonalidade forte e brilhante.
