Did anyone see RE2? I saw it and it rules. I never saw the first but I still liked it. I heard the first one sucks.

I saw the last 15 mins with a friend. And man it was horrid.


There was way too much fast cutting and action going on that I didn't even know what was really going on. The editor should be shot.

The ending sucked and from what i've seen it isn't better then the first.

I loved the first movie, and im pretty excited about the sequel, im kinda putting off reading too much about it until i see it so i dont start thinking "man this is gonna suck" or something. I'malready put off AvP after reading reviews (no it still aint out in the UK, wtf).

RE2 was great, I thought. I saw it three times within the first week of release. The first one was good too, but RE2 is better.

I want to see RE2 when it is released. I'm not holding any high hopes or anything, but I would still like to see it.

The first RE was OK, but nothing special.

I believe in trying things out for yourself, you may like it you may not. What's life if you don't take chances?

When the first one blows massive monkey chunks, and people walk out of the the theater telling you that the second one sucked worse, it's time to wait untill the heap comes to video before watching it.

I'm a firm believer in an open mind, but come the fuck on. Do you think Alone in the Dark will be good based on the trailer and the people involved? I would hope the answer is no. Same way with this flick. The trailer looked dumb, the reviews all say it's dumb.........I think it's pretty safe to say that the thing will probably be dumb.

Well,If the 99% of people says it sucks maybe there's a reason.
It is meant to be a horrid action movie with some zombie and not a real zombie flick.It is sad how they didn't pay attention to viodegames storylines and dark atmospheres which made Capcom still more rich

Hall9ween
09-24-2004, 06:49 AM
I didn't mean for my post about being open minded to be aimed at anyone on this board. It's easier to judge what a sequel will be like by judging it on the movie before, and if you didn't like the previous movie, chances are of you seeing the sequel are very small.

However, saying that 99% of the people say that this movie is crap is just a little bit of a exaggeration, don't you think? I doubt there will ever be a movie with 99% of the cinema-going public hating it. That is a very high percentage.

I suppose I just hate it when people have stubborn opinions about a movie before they see it, and even if after they have seen the movie it is better than what they thought it would be - they still don't change their opinions. That's what gets me. And, I also dislike when people think "sequels=shit", but that's a whole other story of me getting things off my chest.

People at BD, Diabolic Dominion, Creature Corner, Arrow in the Head, and various other sites have dumped on RE:A to no end. Yeah I would say that most of the critics hate it.

Hall9ween
09-24-2004, 07:05 AM
Must admit that I don't pay much attention to critics really. Yea, I read reviews of films, but most of the time I forget their personal opinion within two minutes. I just enjoy reading about the film - good or bad.

I really liked the game. I saw the first movie, it was alright. It didn't really follow the game too well. I haven't seen the second one yet, but I have heard a lot of people that didn't like the first one liked it. So I will have to eventually see the second.

Havent seen the sequel but I have seen the first. I didnt think it was too bad. Zombie movies arent great movies IMO either way. They are either entertaining or a waist of time. I thought it was entertaining

First, i saw the trailer, pretty snazzy i might ad, and i loved it! I go to see the movie. I am dissapointed from the first scene! the cameras were set up badly! Then so on. fight scenes where way TOO fast, Nemesis looked like rubber (didnt carry original gun either!) when alice broke her finger, so RUBBER!!!! ahhhhhh The super powers thing was okay, kinda dumb. How did jill valentine know how to shoot the zombies in the head?!?!?!?! Why did she get fired? The ENDING WAS SO TERRIBLE!!!!!!! SHE CAN KILL PEOLE WITH HER MIND? WHAT!!!! They swore way too much in the movie. Last movie was way less (great film I might add) and they had like forty scenes of BooBs!!(not that i am complaining) And Nemesis turns good!?!?! the lickers looked so animated and so terrible. Whay was it in the trailer the licker was gray and way too bulky. They couldnt decide which version looked more sucky thats why. Eventually after leaving the theater, several days, it started to grow on me and i like it but they need to fix all the stuff above!! What do you guys think?

Blackesteyes
12-14-2004, 01:49 AM
I thought RE2 was pretty good, i loved the bit at the start with the zombies chasing the doomed girl up the stairs onto the roof, and the way they kept alot of stuff from the games in it. Like Nemesis growling "sttaaaaarrrrrrrrrssss" after rattling through all the S.T.A.R.S members with a chain gun. michaelisalive, Jill knew to shoot them in the head because its set in the time frame of the second and thrid games, after she was involved in the mansion incident.

Apocalypse was horrible. I liked the first one and this was just sheer action and mayhem for no apparent reason. Yes, I followed it just fine. I just don't like the story. It was very much of the same caliber as another movie that said hey lets just throw in a ton of action and forget everything else!

Huge 'Resident Evil' Sequel News Times Two!!
Get more on Resident Evil | Posted 06.12.05 @ 12:33 pm ]

How the hell every single website (including us) missed this is beyond me, but reported a month ago by the Hollywood Reporter is that Paul W.S. Anderson is not only prepping Resident Evil: Afterlife- but he's already begun work on the fourth flick! Principle photography for the third flick is planned for November or December. Thanks to Albert W. for sending in the link, read on for the news from back in May...

According to the Hollywood Reporter:

"Germany's Constantin Film and its genre production shingle, Paul W.S. Anderson and Jeremy Bolt's Impact Pictures, are ramping up preparations for a fourth edition of their successful zombie franchise "Resident Evil" before the third film in the series has even begun shooting.

Constantin head of production Martin Moskowicz said in Cannes that the third film, "Resident Evil: Afterlife," will shift locations to shoot in Australia, with principle photography planned for November or December.

"Resident Evil 4" will be set in Tokyo, and Impact/Constantin is looking to shoot the film in Japan. "Afterlife" will be set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun with mutant zombies. "Afterlife" will play in the Nevada desert with the Aussie outback standing in for the American wasteland. In the final reel, the action will shift to Japan, setting up the fourth edition.

Milla Jovovich is set to reprise her signature role as zombie slayer extraordinaire Alice though no formal deal has been signed yet. Paul W.S. Anderson, who together with partner Bolt will produce "Afterlife" through their Constantin-controlled shingle Impact Pictures, is finishing the script for the third edition. Anderson directed the first "Resident Evil" and penned the sequel "Resident Evil: Apocalypse."

I liked these movies for what they are. The first had more horror in it and the second was mostly action, but I think they're the best video game movies. I guess that's not saying much, but you got zombies and action. Romero movies they are not, but then again everything is 2nd class compared to those, or 3rd or 4th.

Ditto, the first movie did have a lot of action and excitement in it. There wasn't more zombies but there were more eviler zombies. I can't make up my mind if Alice was good or bad.. That has me all confused.

And the Mike Epps appearence in Apocolypse killed it. The demon killing ONLY the S.W.A.T team. Hmph.

Yeah I saw Resident Evil: APOCOLYPSE and the action to the mvie as you call it "kung-fu" is what makes the movie a better movie.

Not too fond of resident evil, george owns them, take georges series, they are acted out in ways that would seem realistic if a zombie breakout happened, resident evil was too much teenage action and "Im the lead role so i can be hit" even in the george movies, the lead roles got a bite :D

Nightmareman88
04-10-2006, 05:43 AM
The first was just entertaining trash, Apocalypse isn't neither much to speak of, a popcorn flick nothing else.

But the biggest reason I throw these in the low corner, is simply that they couldn't stick to the plot of the game.

3pidemiC
04-10-2006, 08:54 AM
Honestly, RE:A seemed like a big-budget B-movie....Just acting was crap, the action was crap, the plot and everything else are just junk. There are things in it that just make you go...."WHAT!?".

Like when...the main character girl drivers her motorcycle through the window of the church. How did she know they were in the church!? Was there a ramp just convienently places that allowed her to actually perform that stunt. And the whole Mike Epps thing was just pitiful.

04-10-2006, 09:21 AM
3pidemic, the movie was based on magic. :p
I really like the movie, I'm a big fan of the games. Right, the first one sucked but it basically tells a story. I thought they did a really good job on their picks of characters.

Creepingmouth
04-10-2006, 10:41 AM
actually the characters are one of the weakest part of the movie.
With so many important characters in RE games they decided with no good reason to ignore them (where's Chris Redfield?and Claire Redfield?What about Leon S. Kennedy?)
Jill Valentine was the only reason I liked Apocalypse more than Resident Evil which I think is a pretty mediocre movie.
Milla's not that bad and isn't her fault if her character is so damn annoying.I also think the kung-fu fight between Alice and Nemesis was simply pathetic.
I don't know how is possible they menaged to make two movies with absolutely no consideration of the videogames.

Stage 3

They followed the basic storyline of the games. RE is one of those games you could never do a movie exactly as the game because the game evolves and can be totally different each time you play or each time anyone plays. All you have for sure is the basic theme, which I think they did a good job of staying with. I love the games. Movies were ok, but not all that bad.

absolutely wrong:the games have really solid guidelines which they simply ignored.
Who's Alice in the games?Why with all the cool characters in the games they felt the need to invent a brand new bidimensional character who has lines that seem taken directly from some Schwarzenegger's action movie.
Try to take a look at Silent Hill:soon is gonna come out a movie adaptation of that beautiful survival horror games series.If you ever played a Silent Hill game try to take a look at the trailer and the pictures of the movie.That's a valid example of how a movie can be faithful even to a video games series.The movie might turn out to be not a masterpiece but at least didn't ignore the videogames.

I agree. Apocalypse just ruined what could've been a great RE3 adaptation. Nemesis was a constant threat of doom in the game but didn't feel like it in the movie. And the 3 mercenaries were a joke...they were nothing like the kick-ass badasses they were. lol. They didn't even die the way they did in the game. And Fred Ward's son as Nicholai?! :argh:

I actually really enjoyed the original, it had some scary moments, it's like a cool action horror mix and Milla is sexy as hell. Love it when she karate kicks the zombie dog right in the face! Apocolypse was fun too, not scary at all though, but it had some good action like when Milla fights Nemesis. That thing was relentless! Also when she runs down the side of the building, impossible but cool!

Resident Evil: Extinction news

The plot synopsis-

The third and final installment of the $100 million "Resident Evil" hits, "Resident Evil: Extinction" is again based on the wildly popular video game series and picks up where the last film left off. Alice (Milla Jovovich), now in hiding in the Nevada desert, once again joins forces with Carlos Olivera (Oded Fehr) and L.J. (Mike Epps), along with new survivors Claire (Ali Larter), K-Mart (Spencer Locke) and Nurse Betty (Ashanti) to try to eliminate the deadly virus that threatens to make every human being undead... and to seek justice. Since being captured by the Umbrella Corporation, Alice has been subjected to biogenic experimentation and becomes genetically altered, with super-human strengths, senses and dexterity. These skills, and more, will be needed if anyone is to remain alive.

And some pics (pretty cool ones I might add)

The "Resident Evil" movies were a missed opportunity. The filmmaking of both films were truly lackluster and the scripts were equally as lame. Instead of providing truly horrific zombie films, they became films that look more like music videos.

I agree completely. Through this whole movie, all I wanted was for him to live and no he dies in a dumb ass way. I thought his character was truly wasted as he was my favorite actor in that movie and they kill like 3 of the soldiers in one scene. He shouldn't have died so early or at all. He did show the laser who was boss 2/3 times though lol.

I, personally, thought the RE movies were terrible. You have a perfect scenario in the games (tight, atmospheric, claustrophobic, crazy scares, gore aplenty) and you turn it into some lousy 'thing' that isn't at all like the games. When the video game is infinitely scarier than the movie, you have done something very wrong (just ask anyone that had to sit through a Uwe Boll film).

However, the addition of Ali Larter as Claire Redfield is a step in the right direction (I know it doesn't say her last name, but if they include a character named 'Claire' and it ISN'T Claire Redfield from the games, then someone has their head so far up their ass that they can re-eat their dinner from last night).

I was cool with the first movie, up to a point. And the point I didn't like was the last 20 minutes or so. The second I thought was abslute rubbish however and if it wasn't for the fact that the director of the third film is the same guy who gave us highlander oh so long ago, I wouldn't care one ioda about it.

^Judging a movie before release is so tacky.

2 was just fun, I liked it but missed hottie Eric Mabius! Anyways the 3rd one's synopsis doesn't really connect with what I thought went on with the end of 2 I thought she turned evil and was going to rampage everyone. But I guess not

I will see it no less!

I am IN LOVE with Resident Evil. The games, the movies, and especially Milla Jovovich!! They just released a dvd that has both Resident Evil & apocalypse on it. I just glanced at it, walking by it in WalMart, so i'm not sure if its 2 discs or double sided. I'll have to check it out again. I already own both movies, and 2 dvds for the 1st one. One of them came out later and had better extras on it, so I had to get it! But at least Apocalypse got 2 discs! I just can't wait for a box set to come out after Extinction finally comes out! I'm really excited. What are your opinions?:jump:

Ok, I just got home from the theatres...and I loved it. I loved that they added Claire Redfield, I loved that they added the crows, and I LOVE that they added "Tyrant"! Those parts were amazing. As far as most of the rest, it was ok. The action scenes were superb as always, and Milla Jovovich (with whom I am obessed:bow: ) kicked major ass *as always*, and she looked good doin' it. (although not as good as she did in the other movies)...plus they caked the makeup on that girls face, wow! Anywho, i'm rambling now....but I would give it an 8!! My bf decided he'd (maybe) give it a 2..he critiqued the WHOLE thing, which is why I suppose I felt the need to a little. (but he doesn't know anything about the game or extra details anyway, so he can't say much). Ok, well i'd love to know how people felt..especially the die hard fans (the game players, and RE book readers; Such as myself). Excited to know what you all thought!

Hotter in the other films, as apposed to how she looked in Extinction, but still hot (way to much makeup though). And yea, if they spin off into a story with Claire (even though Claire is a legit character *from the game*, and Alice is not) I would not go see it. I would be very VERY upset! Milla is such a better actress as well. I just hope she's up to it after her baby is born :) She's a trooper though. I think she will!!:nodsmile:

I still need to see Extinction but wow, I am surprised the series will be taking this route and not even attempting to create a Milla! However, I really like the character Leon from 2 & 4 (the fourth game is awesome!) so I wouldn't mind seeing him as a lead. It will be nice to see another take on this series and for the entire film to be computer animated sounds unique, as that would offer the ability to have really creepy ass zombies.

I also heard the third is good, that is if you like the rest of the series. You can't go into a Resident Evil movie expecting it to be entirely loyal to the games continuity, just way too late for that.

Of course it's way too late. The first movie incorporates characters and themes from at least 2 or 3 of the games. They just can't expand on the story and give you something overblown and call it RE.

I still say they are good movies if just for the sake of being just that not something from the game.....

It's not perfect, but it's far from being crap. If you go in with lowered expectations, you should be fine with the movie.

The second one is a great popcorn flick and stereotypes aplenty.

I found the zombie stripper scene to be very amusing, not entirely sure why. And Jill had a nice rack, her outfit was so close to the game outfit that it almost came off too cos-play like, but eh.

Speaking of RE, is there a thread about the new game on this board anywhere?

Talk about contreversey.. wowzers. A lot of people are butthurt over the theme..

Of course it's way too late.

Actually the fourth Resiednt Evil movie that is coming out soon is called Resident Evil: Degeneration, and it goes after the last game of the series. It is all CGI, characters in all. You can see of preview of it on the Extinction DVD.

Do any of you guy's think this CGI movie is going to be worth a dam?????

I think if it is total CGI with stars and all it will either kill the film franchise or move it to DTV unless they go back to live action.

A Cgi movie would be fun if it filled in some gaps in the series. Of course if it focuses on Jill Valentine, I'll have to check it out.

Fill in some gaps? It has absolutely nothing to do with the other three.

I love the Matrix movies
Oh yeah;)

This probably isn't going to be the last one. They will make another one with Milla Jovovich and continue on with the series. And Degeneration will most likely go straight to DVD.

Do any of you guy's think this CGI movie is going to be worth a dam?????
No, if it goes to theatres, which I highly doubt, it will fail, and if it goes straight to DVD, the sales will be horrible. So this whole thing is really pointless.
