Resident Evil Saves The Best For Last With ‘The Final Chapter’ (Movie Review)

I honestly never saw this happening.  Today I walked out of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter with a giddy smile on my face rather than one of disgust and regret.  After covering Resident Evil: Afterlife a few weeks back here on 4K Ultra HD and rewatching Retribution I wasn’t sure about my decision to check out […]

Review: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (Movie Review)

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is an aggressively silly movie, fueled only by jump scares and bum dialogue. Fans of the series might be sad to realize that this finale returns to a more grounded reality of the first film, as opposed to the fever-dream aesthetics of the last two films. Fear not though, all […]

Resident Evil: Afterlife (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

The Resident Evil franchise is a series I nearly gave up on had it not been for my friend Susan’s advice back to me in 2008.  You see, quite honestly, I take my films very seriously and well, Resident Evil movies just didn’t cut it for me in that department.  I was just not able to take the lunacy, […]

THE SPIKE LEE JOINT COLLECTION Coming To Blu-ray!

This doesn’t make up for Oldboy, but alas someone is finally digging into Spike Lee’s back catalog of films.  And, funny enough, I now need to write a new piece for next week’s ‘Wishlist’ article as it was going to be for The 25th Hour which now sees a release date of June 10!  It also […]

Resident Evil: Retribution (Blu-ray Review)

I have to admit, while covering Sony’s Resident Evil Comic-Con panel in 2010 (here), I truly believed Resident Evil: Afterlife was going to be the last film in the franchise, at least for Milla Jovovich’s character and arc.  Was I ever wrong!  Not only did they prove my way of thinking incorrect, but Milla has […]

Resident Evil: Retribution Brings The Plague Home To Blu-ray

So they say that Resident Evil: Retribution is the biggest and best Resident Evil ever.  That remains to be seen.  Err…I mean only because I did not catch it in the theater to make that judgment call, but I’m looking forward to the Blu!  So here’s the dealio.  Milla Jovovich is back in the latest, […]

‘The Three Musketeers’ Is Junk Food, Like The Candy Bar

It seems like there was one type of phrase that came to mind during the making of this movie:  “This is not your father’s Three Musketeers”.  In the era of blockbuster filmmaking that audiences now live in and in the wake of somewhat self-aware period action films like Pirates of the Caribbean and Sherlock Holmes, […]

‘Stone’ Isn’t Quite Rock Solid, But Has Strong Performances

Stone is a meandering drama that makes sure to preach its themes pretty loud and clear, but also features very good performances from its stars.  It deals with characters suffering from their own flaws and also looks to add some twists on atonement and what makes someone a sinner.  Then you have the element of […]

‘Resident Evil: Afterlife’ is a Biohazard to Avoid

The fourth installment in the strangely popular Resident Evil movie series, based upon the original Resident Evil video game series continues to baffle me in its ways of being fairly unimaginative and derivative, yet still managing to get a pass from audiences.  But this time it’s in 3-D!  After a brief recap, utilizing the first […]

Comic-Con 2010: Resident Evil: Afterlife 3-D

Right before the infamous stabbing incident happened in Hall H on Saturday, July 24th, I was treated to another favorite of mine, Milla Jovovich and Screen Gems’ Resident Evil: Afterlife.  Milla’s battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights when Alice dukes it out in “real” 3-D, not the fake kind.  Writer/director Paul W. S. […]

Thoughts on the ‘Resident Evil AfterLife’ Trailer?

I never was a big Resident Evil fan.  I never even played the original video games.  It took a woman at work to convince me to give them another try.  So like usual, I fell in love with them upon my second viewing.  My wife was nice enough to pick up the trilogy Blu-ray set […]
