I prefer Zombie death scenes better where the human pulls the pin out the grenade and just holds it and grins as the zombies move in on him.

What a way to go


PS..can remember the scene, but cannot remember the film, could have been zombie or alien infestation

I have never seen Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. At this point from what I know, I don't want too. I knew I wasn't going to see it because Sienna wasn't in it.

You are right about the White Queen. They just dropped the whole use your blood for a cure thing too. Both Red and White Queens would have made for an interesting conflict.

Resident Evil Extinction with it's quiet scenes were pretty good. Though the whole movie being desert gave it a bland look. The next movie breaks it up a little but the color pallet still get subdued to much in the beginning. Then a stark contrast at the end.


So I did just finish Resident Evil: Afterlife. Still don't think it's a good movie but I don't think it is bad either. They do drop plot points from the last movie. For all it's faults it does do somethings right. The ignoring the world is desert now is good. Because the T-Virus drying up lakes and rivers never made sense. Also, I do like Wesker more in this movie. This and Resident Evil Extinction are about the same level for me.

While having Chris was nice, he did go to waste. Same with Clair. Could have done with less people. But we apparently needed cannon fodder. The best part of the movie was the Axeman fight scene. He came with some memorable music that I like. The credits scene with Jill is why I sat through this movie twice in the theater. Just couldn't get enough of her.

Well just one movie left. Resident Evil Retribution. That will be for next week. This one is my most guilty pleasure of the lot of them. Only watch it for Sienna Guillory.
One thing I forgot to add about the White Queen clearly Umbrella's AI technology had advanced to the point where the holographic representation of the White Queen made her look and sound human, how did Umbrella go from having an advanced AI that looks and sounds human and then go back to using the red hologram for the Red Queen maybe different Umbrella facilities had varying types of AI technology with some being more advanced and others less advanced either way going from the advanced appearance of the White Queen to the hologram for the Red Queen feels like a step backwards.

I suppose if Umbrella had maintained the advanced appearance of the White Queen for the Red Queen hologram anyone watching might have thought that she was the devil and maybe the producers and director wanted to avoid that comparison.

Had they kept the advanced appearance of the White Queen for the Red Queen hologram the Red Queen could have ended up looking like this

Ghost Ship (2002)

Oh, come on... if you make a film about an italian ship, why don't you pay someone who is able to translate "Captain's Cabin" in a correct italian????
Even Google Translate knows the correct translation is "Cabina del Capitano".
What a cheap production!

I remember liking the first Nun movie.

We've been really enjoying Reservation Dogs on Netflix.

Wheel of Time - season 2 episode 6

This was a slightly horrific but brilliant episode. Poor Egwene.

We've shotgunned our way through three Ray Harryhausen movies, Jason and the Argonauts, The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, and The Golden Voyage of Sinbad. All of these movies were awesome, and I can clearly see the influence they had on pop culture at large. Why hadn't I seen them before.

Everything about that movie is just awful and does a huge disservice to the previous ones.
Also worth to mention, that apparently there are important events in the books that are taking places between the movies.

Notable events (not sure if all of them correct):
In genesis you get background to most of the introduced characters (so Alice isn't just Alice;the head sec at Umbrella anymore)
After apocalypse, Jill and Olivera(?) gets captured by Umbrella, the latter escapes and Angie ends up dead, and some romance between Olivera and Alice. (which also explains the cut kissing scene in extinction)
In the book of Retribution, after the ship fight Christ left elsewhere, Jill left to Raccoon city everybody else died or presumed dead.
The final book explains how Wesker's "Humanity's last stand" was a lie.
Leon, Ada, Jill dies, while Becky is supposedly safely hidden within the white house Alice despite her attempts she will never reach her again and by the time the movie "Final Chapter" starts -the aftermath of the fight, showing Alice wandering the ruins - one can take an educated guess that she is dead too.


Staying on the topic of zombies...
I watched TWD Dead City: I guess it was okay, but too short to get me excited, while the spinoff Daryl Dixon is just simply great!
I love how it shows the outbreak day in France, I just love, that I can finally got my wish seeing apocalypse on european grounds!


Also, it's the final season of Archer... and it's so bad. We're 4 episodes in and nothing noteworthy or funny happened except of the latest episode. Hopefully it's going to pack up some steam to end the franchise with a bang...


Finally, I have yet to start AHS newest season. Apparently Kim Kardashian proving people wrong, but I'm still sceptial...

The thing about those movies that younger people don't get was, those movies were not made for children, but by the time they wound up in syndication, they were children's movies because of the effects. They would be shown during the afternoon movie slot (Dialing for Dollars!) during Christmas and summer break.

Same with Godzilla/Kaiju movies. Bugs Bunny--not for children, but became children's TV simply because it was animated.
