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...

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...

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...

12 Awesome Action Movies That Never Got Sequels

It's always unfortunate when a promising franchise is cut down in its prime. There are plenty of action franchises that have failed with later sequels -- "The Highlander," "Starship Troopers," and "Die Hard," just to name a few examples. There are also sequels that completely ruined any enthusiasm for future installments; after disasters like "Speed 2: Cruise Control" and "The Whole Ten Yards," no one wanted to see those franchises continue.A great action sequel gives filmmakers a chance to rais...

12 Films You Should Watch If You Loved Mortal Kombat

To future generations, April 2021 will look like the strangest time capsule. Cryptopunks were selling at Sothebys. "Mare Of Easttown" had the nation saying "meust" and "deun't" instead of "most" or "don't." And movie theaters were sort of open, playing the same four or five movies ad nauseam. One of the month's top grossers? An adaptation of a video game franchise that launched in 1992 -- and the internet was hype for it.In many ways, Simon McQuaid's big-screen take on "Mortal Kombat" reminded m...

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...
