Tales From The Box Office: Resident Evil Beat The Video Game Movie Curse

Video games have been wildly popular for decades now, but it was in the '90s when Hollywood first became interested in the notion of turning these interactive experiences into movies. These began in earnest with the likes of the legendarily bad "Super Mario Bros." in 1993 and the A-for-effort "Mortal Kombat" in 1995. To this day, video game movies remain a truly difficult nut to crack, with only a few managing to rise above and become truly successful. Fewer still end up finding critical love be...

Encanto And House Of Gucci Did Decent Thanksgiving Box Office, Resident Evil Didn't

Thanksgiving is typically a robust five-day weekend at the box office that Hollywood has come to rely on. 2020 had other plans obviously, but this year saw a host of new releases for just about every type of moviegoer to enjoy. From Disney's "Encanto," to Ridley Scott's "House of Gucci," and even "Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City," there was much to choose from. Not to mention "Ghostbusters: Afterlife" and "King Richard" entering their second weekends. In the end, it came out to an overall...

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 […]

Everything We Know About The Live-Action Peter Pan & Wendy Movie So Far

Everyone knows the story of "Peter Pan," whether they've read J.M. Barrie's original play and/or novel, seen the animated Disney movie, watched a different film adaptation (P.J. Hogan's 2003 version is worth seeking out), absorbed its plot though cultural osmosis, or some combo of all those things. It's a weird, whimsical, often retold fairy tale about the challenges of growing up and the inevitability of death that has only grown more blatantly problematic with time, all of which begs the quest...

Every Luc Besson Movie Ranked Worst To Best

Luc Besson is different things to different people. A director of memorable genre films ("The Professional," "The Fifth Element"). A writer of action hits with no fewer than five successful franchises to his name ("Taxi," "The Transporter," "District B13," "Taken," "Nikita"). A businessman with poor bookkeeping skills. A real prick and alleged rapist. But for now at least, he and his nearly three-decades of directorial efforts are solely the subject of this wholly necessary and incontrovertible ...

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 Trailer: Discover The Origin Of Evil

It couldn't be a better time to be a "Resident Evil" fan. The latest video game, "Village," became a pop culture phenomenon (thanks in no small part to the internet's collective obsession over the Tall Vampire Lady) when it was released earlier this year. Now, the popular horror franchise is getting another turn on the big screen with the reboot titled "Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City." This movie has come with promises of leaning far more in the direction of horror than the previous Mill...

The 12 Best Video Game Movies Ranked

What should a great video game movie feel like? Should the "Final Fantasy" film mostly function like a playthrough with a bunch of extra cutscenes? Should plot developments be mostly fetch-quests? Films tell compelling stories, but an entire generation has been raised on video games, and they're used to feeling like they're participating in the plots of the media they consume, whether the project is based on a game or not. This, I would argue, is a quality the best video game movies share, no ma...
