RESIDENT EVIL VENDETTA

Want to see the latest installment of Resident Evil? Of course you do. What’s better than zombies and Resident Evil, right? Well I have 5 free passes to give away to see the film at 7pm on June 19 at AMC Northpark in Dallas, TX. I’ve always been a fan of the Resident Evil video games and films, no matter who cheesy or bloody they are.

Hi Bryan Here….

Another year, another ‘Resident Evil’ film.  What number are they on now?? 5000?  Well this one is called ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’.  And Paul W.S. Anderson is back in the director’s chair, this time with the unkillable Milla Jovovich and badass Michelle Rodriguez running around stomping zombies.  I must say, that this trailer looks a bit decent compared to the last couple of films.  You be the judge.

I would like you all to welcome Boomstick’s newest writer and contributor, CrescentFresh_22.  He hangs his hat in the great city of Wichita and enjoys a good cigar and glass of scotch.  He is one of two people I know who has seen Adam Sandler’s first movie, “Going Overboard” twice in a row and was one of the first people to get their hands on a copy of Boondock Saints over 10 years ago.  He can be found at any point  during the day watching a Troma movie marathon and writing letters to his personal hero, Billy Mitchell.  Please make him feel welcome.  I know this review is a little late, but the movie hasn’t been out for very long, and is still making money, so if you have not seen the new Resident Evil movie yet, maybe this review will get you in that theater seat.  Enjoy.


I finally got down to my local theater to see a movie, and of all the options available I choose to see the latest edition in the Resident Evil franchise.  I’ll be honest with you, it was the 3D that sold me on this movie and if the third dimension wasn’t available, I likely would have watched something different.  I had not seen or heard anything about this movie, so I was really going in fresh.  In that light, I am going to do my best to make sure that there are is as little spoilers here as possible.


Let’s start at the beginning…  Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D uses the same team that was responsible for Avatar, and it shows.  The opening shot has a scene in the rain, and rain in 3D shows depth and layers that immerse the viewer right away. The director must have loved how it looked in the rain as well because later in the movie there is another scene that takes place indoors and yet has rain effects… but who cares because it looks great!  The 3D is truly stunning, and I will say now that it is worth the price of admission.


I will also let you know now that there may be a slight bias because this movie has two actresses that were crushes of mine throughout my 20’s.  Milla Jovovich looks as good as ever, and the movie constantly reminded me of why I was so fond of her ever since The Fifth Element.  Then there’s Ali Larter, who had my full attention from the moment she wore the whip cream bikini in Varsity Blues,.  Let’s just say that both of these two lovely ladies helped the younger me out through the lonelier days of my past, and I am eternally grateful.


There are also a couple actors that I think are worth the mention.  Wentworth Miller is in this movie… or as I like to call him, that guy from Prison Break with the tattoos.  And guess what, he’s stuck in a prison and knows how to break out.  Although in this movie he can’t escape without help, and I’m guessing it’s because he doesn’t have the tattoos.  There’s also some guy named Shawn Roberts in this movie that plays the bad guy.  This movie is shot in stunning 3D, and yet all the technology in the world doesn’t seem to save the one dimensional performances of these guys.


The first installment of the series directed by Paul W.S. Anderson was (and still is) my favorite chapter in this series.  While the second and third installments of this series were directed by someone else, Paul W.S. Anderson has returned to direct this film, and I think I know why.  While 3D has been around for some time, it is utilizing new technology and has really advanced a great deal since its first uses.  To that extent, there is a race to have movies presented in 3D.  I think this movie was attempting to gain as many “firsts” as possible, such as the first Real D film shot in the rain, underwater, etc.


You aren’t going to a Resident Evil movie for a powerful character study, but for a video game on film.  This movie succeeds in that.  You get plenty of action sequences, and great special effects.  If you are still reading this, you are likely a fan of the series in some form, so find a 3D showing and go see it.

There needs to be more 3-D rain and 3-D under water sequences.

There Will Be a 5th Resident Evil Movie

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 13th, 2010

Resident Evil 4 3-D opened at number one at the box office this past weekend bringing in just under 28 million dollars.  It is the largest opening movie of the Resident Evil franchise.

Star of the movie Milla Jovovich told a New York magazine, ““This new Resident Evil is the first one to ever open at No. 1 worldwide. It’s the biggest movie in the franchise, So we’re definitely going to make another one,” she said, adding that director Paul W.S. Anderson, her husband, already has some ideas for the fifth Resident Evil installment, and this time he wants the audience’s ideas, too.”

It seems that the powers that be are taking to Resident Evil fans via Twitter and Facebook to see what the fans want to see in the fifth installment.

The Superhero business is a big money maker and anything associated with Marvel Comics is getting snatched up as quickly as if Speed Demon were picking up a littered yard. The geek-friendly brand has just closed a deal with media giant, Netflix, to produce at least four 13-episode series that will lead up to a miniseries of The Defenders.

The guy who directed the awesome reboot of ‘The Evil Dead‘ is set up to direct ‘Dante’s Inferno‘ for Universal Pictures, which is based on the EA video game that came out a few years ago and the famous book. ‘Dante’s Inferno‘ played out a lot like ‘God of War‘ in the video game format, and was left open for a big sequel.

Celebrate the Life of George Romero!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 16th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan and Jana here….

George A. Romero 1940-2017

What a sad day this is. Just the other day, I was thinking and hoping that George Romero had one more zombie film in him left. That’s not the case as the Godfather of the zombie genre and one of the best filmmakers in the horror genre has died today at the age of 77 from lung cancer. With the past few years, the zombie genre has infiltrated every form of media. The Walking Dead, Resident Evil, and tons zombie epics have come in the forms of comic books, TV shows, films, and video games. There wouldn’t be any of this, if it weren’t for George Romero who brought us a super small budget film in 1968 called Night of the Flesh Eaters, later changed to Night of the Living Dead, which gave us the zombie we know today.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Yes, we are all a bit nervous when it comes to video game movies. There is good reason for that too, since most of them are fairly terrible, even though some make a ton of money at the box office. The ‘Tomb Raider‘ films with Angelina Jolie made a ton of money as did the many sequels of ‘Resident Evil‘. Let’s not forget the recent ‘Warcraft‘ movie or ‘The Angry Birds‘ movie either – all of which made a big box office splash, despite the quality of story and performances.

You know how One Direction causes pubescent girls across the globe to squeal with glee? Now take that intensity and obsessive behavior and attach it to millions of guys that follow comic books and video games the way a stock trader follows the Nasdaq, then you can understand the genius of Screen Gems bringing out Sam Raimi at Comic-Con today.

Film Review: ‘Need For Speed’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

need-for-speed-first-look-06102013-201607

I was trying to think of a movie that was based on a video game that was truly amazing. I couldn’t do it. I went through all of them, and while I enjoyed some of the attempts, nothing really stood out as being unforgettable or even that great. Sure, you have your ‘Resident Evil‘ movies and your ‘Tomb Raider‘ films, but ultimately those are still forgettable and don’t hold up all that well, although they have made a killing at the box office.

Film Review: ‘Pompeii’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 20th, 2014

Ben K., Here….

I love Pompeii. It’s a fascinating place where the past comes to life; where all one imagines of the Roman Empire is made tangible. It’s amazing to walk through ancient homes surrounded by frescoes, mosaics, restaurants, a bathhouse, a grand theater…and one need only look upward to see the cause of both Pompeii’s destruction and preservation. That vast, once fearsome volcano. Still, it is worth but a glance; the city and her ghosts will forever remain the focus of Pompeii. In his latest film, Paul W.S. Anderson gives us the opposite: a cursory glance at the people and the detailed wrath of top-billed Mount Vesuvius.
