Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Movie Review

Rating: 1/5

When has a movie series ever ACTUALLY ended with an installment that had “Final Chapter” or something like it as the subtitle? Yeah, I think the Elm Street movies, Friday the 13th movies, and others are going to have a couple words with the Resident Evil movies on this subject. Paul W.S. Anderson may not be Uwe Boll, but he certainly doesn’t help in making movies based on video games something that’s worth appealing. There was a time that he did do this with the first Mortal Kombat movie, which I still think is the best video game movie ever made so far (by comparison anyway), but somewhere along the way he just ended up making movies that got worse and worse. And he plans to tackle Monster World next into making those games into movies? No thanks, keep him AWAY from that. It’s also ironic that this movie, probably the worst of the RE movies, comes out the same year as Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, and while I haven’t played that one yet, I’ve heard it’s brought the series back to its survival horror roots and did well as a result. Shame that this movie couldn’t rise up higher than the crap that came before it, only being lower. Read More

Rating: 4/5

Ya know, it’s not every day that one would say “man that Schwarzenegger movie was depressing”, unless it was Batman and Robin or some other really bad movie he was in that kinda led to a downturn in his career. Maggie is definitely depressing. I’m not saying it’s bad because it’s depressing. The fact that it provokes major feels is what makes it so good, and I’m surprised this movie was kinda overlooked, but I guess that’s to be expected when it was made to be an indie film, playing in select theaters, and also on video-on-demand services, in its initial release before arriving on home video, yet a bunch of indie movies do get wider releases after word of mouth and stuff. Shows what I know, I guess. Read More
