Blood films are usually done to investigate hematological problems (disorders of the blood itself) and, occasionally, to look for parasites within the blood such as malaria and filaria.
Blood films are made by placing a drop of blood on one end of a slide, and using a spreader slide to disperse the blood over the slide's length.
Normal blood films are typically full of red blood cells, with occasional white blood cells and minuscule platelets, which are harder to notice due to their size.

 First Blood (1982)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
"First Blood" is actually more akin to those 'survival in the wilderness' programs you might see on the Discovery Channel; with Rambo having to rely more on guile and cunning than brawn and an M-16 to get him out of tricky situations.
That's not to imply that this is boring.
Not an action film as such, it sits better as suspense.

 Blood Diamond - Film Reviews - Film - Entertainment - theage.com.au
Set in the small African country of Sierra Leone in the 1990s, the film explores the dark world of the blood diamond trade, where rough diamonds are used to fund militia rebels at war with their government.
Blood Diamond is the latest in a string of films that portray Africa as a place of evolutionary contradiction: it is where civilisation was born but it is also seen cinematically as the place where civilisation often gives way to barbarity and anarchy.
Long before its release, the film's story was attracting media attention, throwing the spotlight on the diamond trade and prompting many diamond companies to publicly defend their products as being "conflict-free".

 The Film Asylum - Theatre of Blood film review
It's all about Vincent Price, this film is like a valentine to the great man who never quite got the respect, or range of roles, he deserved, but who did just fine with what he was given.
Wrong, and this 1973 film was his first British horror film, and I would argue that by surrounding him with British personalities, the filmmakers were responding to this well-held belief.
It's true that the film is quite similar in plot to Price's low-budget chiller "The Abominable Dr. Phibes" but the fine cast was not quite as superlative as here and the murders were not quite so gruesome or macabre.

And even before the film's release, it realised one of its aims by shaking up some important diamond merchants.
The film, however, is set in 1999 during the war in Sierra Leone, when the illicit trade was at its height.
The director is Edward Zwick, whose earlier film, The Last Samurai, showed a similar feel for the seductions of a wide-screen vista.

  There will be blood. - Film
It's the kind of film that is made for the fans, not the critics, and by putting every carnal desire known to man on display, it does not disappoint.
It may be unfair for a film to use such massive overdoses of adrenaline to arouse an audience's emotions, but "300" does it nonetheless to great success.
The film has some stunning sights, and director Zack Snyder, who previously made the rather good "Dawn of the Dead" remake, does an epic slow-mo. What I would have appreciated is a few less deformed lesbians and a little more about the intricacies of these people's world.

  Blood Changes Video :: Q-The Experience (South Africa)
The health and integrity of the red blood cells is assessed according to the shape of the cells, the tendency to stickiness in specific patterns and the resistance of the cells to breakdown through oxidative damage.
The white blood cells are assessed according to the integrity of the cell walls and the vitality of the white blood cells - the improvements here reflect the functioning of the immune system and the vitality of the body.
This greater improvement, observed in the blood of subjects who continued the treatments, endorses the view that symptoms of ill-health and depletion, which have taken years to develop, are not going to be reversed overnight by the use of the Q2 Energy Spa.

 Invasion of the Blood Farmers
Shot in 35mm back in the 70’s, the film sets the goof tone from the start with an outrageous voice over that is a impersonation of the late James Mason, with his dry, British tone that best suits a documentary on bicycles.
Seriously, the film is designed to completely mess with filmmaking standards in the industry, while at the time accomplishing a pretty good framework and story structure, which is at times necessary to carry such gags and spoofs.
The film is presented widescreen (1.85.1) and looks much better than I have seen it in the past and unless someone does a major restoration, this is as good as I can imagine it can be.

 Blood Work
Blood Work is the twentieth film that Clint Eastwood has directed and starred in, and you have to give him a lot of credit for continually reinventing the way that he puts together a police action film.
Blood Work is not at all like the Dirty Harry films that made Eastwood a totally bankable star with the clout to create his own films.
Eastwood's latest films have focused on character development and personal relationships over the action, which results in acheiving an intimacy with the characters that few other films in the action genre are capable of doing.

 Film Reviews | Blood Work
The structural resemblance of the new film to Dirty Harry and Sudden Impact is striking.
Blood Work is built around the whole idea of non-distinction, that is, the lack of obvious measuring sticks, physical or moral.
The earlier film, though it was nominally a suspense film, recalled Hawks’s El Dorado (1967), with its frequently comic emphasis on physical ailments and late-afternoon romance.

 True Film: Blood in the Face
Filmed in the late 1980s when militant white supremacists were on the rise, this documentary lets them talk without comment during a rally in Michigan.
For example the title of the film comes from their definition of a white person: a person who can blush, you know, where there's blood in the face.
Rather than conjuring up fear (as say the film State of Mind, about the cult of North Korea, does), this one summons up pity for the deranged.

 Animefringe: Reviews - Blood: The Last Vampire
For Blood, there are two ways to do this: 1) give the plot that’s on the back of the DVD case and all the press notes which sounds really cool and can be inferred from the film but doesn’t really come into play, or 2) tell what actually happens in the film.
Blood is about Saya, a cool-looking girl with a sword, who is reluctantly working for a government agent to kill mean looking monsters that are trying to escape from an American military base.
If Manga was that uncomfortable with the run-time of their film, then they should have found more extras to pad the disc and differentiate their length from the film’s (as in "Includes 2 hours of bonus footage!") I sincerely hope that Manga corrects this unscrupulous presentation on future printings of the disc.

 Apparatus for blood film preparation - Patent 4016828
The traditional method of preparing blood smears on microscope slides for evaluation by physicians or medical technicians consists of placing a small quantity of the blood specimen on a microscope slide and then manually wiping the blood across the slide with the edge of another slide or a cover glass.
A further object is the provision of an apparatus in accordance with the preceding objects which effects blood specimen dilution and spinning essentially without operator intervention and which effects the formation of a blood smear by centrifugal action without the attendant hazard of dispersing possibly pathogenic blood particles and aerosol into the atmosphere.
The internal surfaces of the robe which have been in contact with the blood specimen are cleansed by discharge of diluent subsequent to depositing the sample on the substrate and the external surfaces cleansed during the operation of the centrifuge by a spray of liquid from the same source as that forming the liquid curtain.

 DVD Times: Region 0 Reviews: Color Me Blood Red   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The acting is abysmal, despite the fact that Lewis used professional actors in the film, and the editing is very jerky.
This might be explained by the fact that Lewis had an argument with his producer and abandoned the film after shooting, or simply by the fact that there was no money to spend on post-production.
Lewis is hugely entertaining, as always, and manages to be self-deprecating about the film while still being generous and appreciative of the efforts of his collaborators.

 The Popkorn Junkie :: Blood Work
As is the case with most Eastwood movies, the story is more about the characters and their responses to events rather than having them take a back seat to over-the-top action sequences.
While facing many obstacles, including recuperating from his heart transplant and LAPD officers who don't want him treading in their territory, McCaleb proceeds to get deeper and deeper into the hunt, finding out that he and the victims seem to be connected somehow.
The other strength to the film is the deliberate way that Eastwood the director lets the story unfold slowly, so that we can see how pieces of the puzzle are put together as well as to let us get to know all the major characters well enough to understand their motives and personalities.

During a Spanish attack on Port Royal, Dr. Blood and his fellow slaves escaped, captured a Spanish galleon, and set sail as pirates in the Caribbean.
Basil Rathbone had a small, but very important and pivotal role in "Captain Blood." He played the villainous French pirate Levasseur, who joined forces with Captain Blood to increase their profits.
The highlight of the film is the duel between Captain Blood and Levasseur, which resulted in Levasseur's death.
