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, […]

Large-Scale Camp Erupts From ‘Pompeii’ (Movie Review)

Sometimes it is fine just taking what you can get.  A serviceable film is not necessarily a bad one if you had an overall good time.  I would be curious to revisit my thoughts on Pompeii a week from now or even a couple days from now and figure out what I would do differently […]

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, […]

‘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. […]

Death Race 2 Officially Begins Production…

I never really know how I feel about these straight-to-DVD or Blu-ray titles.  However, I feel a bit optimistic about Death Race 2 considering it is being produced by Paul W.S. Anderson and has some pretty impressive names attached to it.  I guess it could go either way.  I am kind of disappointed it is a prequel […]

Brian Suffers From Pandorum

Suppose you were in the mood for a good science fiction/horror recipe.  And no, I am not talking about Jason X.  Let’s first throw in a tad of the chilling suspense found in the original John Carpenter Halloween.  Next, let’s add some enticements.  Remember the heart-pounding clenching fear you felt while watching the original Alien […]
