Re: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017, D: Paul W.S. Anderson) S: Milla Jovovich

If I let "reviewers" influence what movies I add to my collection, I wouldn't have nearly the videos that I have and enjoy. I'll add this to my collection because I like this Resident Evil series, it could've been a bit shorter than it turned out but I enjoy them just the same. I'm anxious to see how they end this.

The Flick Pick seems more like a regular guy who happens to review movies and is decent at doing so in my opinion. For me his over the top comedy that he uses works most of the time. I like Stuckmann but sometimes I feel like he takes himself a bit too seriously.

Re: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017, D: Paul W.S. Anderson) S: Milla Jovovich

Saw it and enjoyed it over all. I would have liked to see the battle for Washington, but I know that would add $200 million to the budget.

I agree with the quick cuts in the fight scenes. I re-watched the series before this, and usually Anderson would just set the camera down and let the fight scenes play out, but not this time.

Ruby Rose was basically a cameo which was surprising, but I did like the link between Alice and the Red Queen.

Re: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017, D: Paul W.S. Anderson) S: Milla Jovovich

Just popping in to say I glanced at the title of this thread while scrolling through and I thought it said President Evil: The Final Chapter, and I had a moment where I thought that's an interesting thread title change from the mods for the Trump presidency thread!

As for the film, I think I've only seen the first one and I don't remember much. Is there a scene where a SWAT team gets laser sliced? Is there a way to see most of the old ones for cheap or free?

His reviews should be under a spoiler tab. I fucking hate that guys open face yap and will never play one. We used to have a member here that would post their YouTube reviews as well and his open gap yap would always be there in all its glory as well.

Spoiler that shit.

I generally don't mind Stuckmann, but don't always agree with him. I think his popularity is getting the Bette of him and his comedy bits at times come off as very annoying. As for the Flick Pick, that guy is a fucking arsehole. Loud annoying douchebag with a shit opinion. Fuck him. Will never watch his shit reviews.

My guess is he interpreted that as you making a sarcastic political remark.


I've seen all the movies in this series and own the entire series on BD.

I have a gift card for AMC, so I might as well see this. Probably tomorrow.

Resident Evil has never been art. Just a trashy zombie video game adaptation. I'm glad it's getting an end after 15 years.

Re: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017, D: Paul W.S. Anderson) S: Milla Jovovich

Didn't catch this yet.

There's something fun about the fantasy-tech that's on display in these movies. To me, that's the selling point of it all. I don't see movies go as far-out as the Resident Evil movies. The trend in Hollywood right now is to make the tech "grounded" - even in the Marvel movies. The tech in the RE movies is a McGuffin a minute.

So it's like, they're clones. But they have zombie DNA splice in. So they can only be killed by special laser from Umbrella. And, like, Alice has one of those guns. It's actually Alice's twin sister. And she, like, has an implant, where she can call reinforcements without, like, actually pressing a button. Cause, like, there's satellites in the sky, that hack RF waves that can transmit back voices and thoughts of Umbrella employees. (Okay, I could write like this for hours ... you get the point.)

It'd get tired if every movie were doing it. But they're not. So it's fresh and fun to see it in these movies.

Re: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017, D: Paul W.S. Anderson) S: Milla Jovovich

Well I have seen every Resident Evil movie in the theaters so I decided to see the final instalment of Milla needs a franchise AKA Resident Evil.

The RE movies were always interesting. They tried to make Alice the center point of the franchise even though most people weren't seeing it for the Alice character who is probably the weakest part of these movies. It also doesn't help that each movie has little to no connective tissue and Alice is different in each movie. And this movie continues that.

And holy cow is this bad. Like really, really bad. The beginning is basically a knock off of Fury Road and features some incredibly terrible fight choreography. From there we go to a fortress where we meet Ali Larter since no other good guy cast members are dumb enough to come back. And we get a lot more crappy CGI. From there we get to go back to The Hive. Again. Yay. From there we get a knock off of Cube, Ruby Rose thankfully dying early, some easter eggs to the first movie and a really lame and crappy finale. It also has a twist with the Alice character which is incredibly stupid. But if you want to see Milla Jovivich in old woman makeup you get your wish.

This movie is also dark. I don't mean figuratively dark, I mean literally dark as in it's hard to see shit.

So overall this movie is awful and easily the worst of the RE franchise that shouldn't have existed in the first place. Oh and if your curious, they leave it open again for yet another sequel at the end. I'm giving it a 1.5/5

My Rankings for the RE movies from best to worst: 1,3,4,2,5,6.

Re: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017, D: Paul W.S. Anderson) S: Milla Jovovich

The action scenes are awful to watch when they should be the main draw. The rest is basically shitting on the franchise or the fans, imo. They had enough CG backgrounds and CG creatures that they could have done the whole movie as the Battle of Helms D.C. with Super Alice. At least the attempt would have been better than another road trip full of plot holes and a stupid ending.

I thought that was a pretty big screw you to fans of the franchise. They also seem to have some type of obsession with clones in these movies as everyone is a clone.

I forgot one more complaint. One is about the editing. This movie is so badly edited that twice a character died and I had no idea who it was that died. I didn't find out until they showed each character who was still left.

That happened to me too, but I thought it was because my mind was wandering.

So, it was better than Underworld: Blood Wars. Take that for it's worth (spoiler: not a whole hell lot).

Re: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017, D: Paul W.S. Anderson) S: Milla Jovovich

Wow. I liked the previous RE movies, but this one sucked. WTF did they do? They rewrote half the damn story. I just watched the other 5 while waiting for the BD of the new one, and holy shit. Luther, Jill, Chris, and Leon disappeared with no real explanation. The girl from Apocalypse was never mentioned again, and that part of the story is completely rewritten as they retell it for this one. WTF!?

Re: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017, D: Paul W.S. Anderson) S: Milla Jovovich

Watched it yesterday and I don't know what the fuck happened in terms of coherency. Yes, the rest of the films have always been hot messes, but at least were easy enough to follow. This one seemed like they rewrote/rebooted the entire franchise for a single film. When we get the final reveal it's a bit of a let down, because the rest of the 5 films never ever foreshadowed any of what was going on in this one. The editing was also way off as if Paul WS Anderson was not in control -- I wonder if the studio was on his ass to hurry up and finish?


And even though they call it the final chapter
Spoiler:
the ending leaves it wide open for another movie.


WTF?

I'm struggling to get through this. It's taking me days. I want to see how it all ends. I've seen them all, but couldn't tell you what anyone of them was about. The CGI is just so bad, but I like Milla and always hoped for tone of part 1. They just got so ridiculous and redundant...

Re: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017, D: Paul W.S. Anderson) S: Milla Jovovich

And after reading about the upcoming reboot with James Wan as producer -- I was right about the studio wanting to hurry up and rush this out there. Makes sense from that point of view. They basically cashed out and called it a night with this franchise.
