Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City Review: The Reboot Wisely Trades Action For Horror, But It's Not Enough

Whatever you want to call the Paul W.S. Anderson "Resident Evil" film series, I don't think you can accurately call it a series of horror films. Sure, there are plenty of horror elements in those movies — they're about zombies, after all — but at the end of the day, Anderson, no stranger to horror having helmed the excellent "Event Horizon," was more interested in action. As a result, Anderson's films were shoot-em-ups that allowed star Milla Jovovich to flip around in slow-motion like she was a...

‘Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City’ Review: A Z-Grade Reboot

Popular genre franchises never truly die; they’re always primed to rise from the grave in mutated modernized forms. Thus, following six feature films headlined by Milla Jovovich (and often spearheaded by director Paul W.S. Anderson), Capcom’s zombie video games get new big-screen life with “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City,” a reboot that does away […]

Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City Trailer: Claire & Chris Redfield Are In For A Nightmare

Well, can't say we weren't warned! After the previous "Resident Evil" movies mostly opted for an action/thriller approach to the ever-popular video game series, director and longtime fan of the franchise Johannes Roberts has made it no secret that he wishes to bring the material back to its horror roots. Nowhere is that more obvious than in this latest trailer for "Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City," which borrows heavily from horror movie marketing both new and old in an attempt to bring i...

Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City Director Would Love To Adapt Resident Evil 4

"Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City" director Johannes Roberts really knows how to get "Resident Evil" fans twisted up in a fantasy booking tizzy. An admitted personal fan of the video game franchise of the same name, Roberts has already discussed at length how the newest installment of the "Resident Evil" cinematic universe will be a faithful adaptation of the games, and now he's even talking about venturing beyond Raccoon City, and possibly into the world of Los Iluminados.In a recent inte...

Upcoming Movies Based On Video Games To Keep On Your Radar

Despite what the people who still refer to all forms of gaming as "playing Nintendos" would have you believe, video games are a medium filled with rich storytelling, compelling characters, dynamic performances, and high-stakes situations. It's no wonder that Hollywood has been desperate to get a slice of that magical (and profitable) pie, to mixed results. Video game movies range from the terribly bad (yet beloved for their badness) like "Super Mario Bros." and "Mortal Kombat," to legitimate suc...

Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City: Meet Claire Redfield

The "Resident Evil" series is home to some of horror video game's very best female protagonists. Claire Redfield is mostly known as a character and protagonist in "Resident Evil 2," "Resident Evil — Code Veronica," and "Resident Evil: Revelations 2" in the canonical games (as well as a few non-canonical spin-off games), but was also played by Ali Larter in Paul W.S. Anderson's "Resident Evil" film series. Now, Kaya Scodelario ("Crawl," "The Maze Runner," "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vi...

Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City Featurette: How The Movie Pulls Off A Faithful Adaptation

When the first "Resident Evil'' movie dropped in 2002, it spawned a highly profitable horror franchise centered around an original character named Alice (Milla Jovovich). Inspired by the iconic video game series of the same name, the "Resident Evil" films lived and died by Alice, relegating characters from the games like Claire Redfield, Jill Valentine, Ada Wong, Carlos Olivera, Chris Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy, Barry Burton and antagonists Albert Wesker and James Marcus to second fiddle.The "Res...

15 Movies About Sharks You Need To Watch

Shark movies are so popular that it might surprise people to know that the subgenre, like global shark populations themselves, isn't quite as large as they might suspect. However, if you combine deadly dramas about monstrous attacks, schlocky creature features, documentaries, and a few animated dips into the ocean (looking at you, "Shark Tale"), the subgenre, while small, is exceptionally diverse. Humans simply have a perennial fascination with sharks, perhaps on account of their prehistoric loo...
