    Talking The Resident Evil Movies thread (WARNING might contain possible spoilers!!!)

    With the newest installment coming out in September, I decided to post this since so many ppl like the Walking Dead, (though this isnt exactly the same thing, its along the same linage) I was curious to see how many fans/people who like the RE series here.

    when this series first came out in 2002 i fell in love with it, i have gone to the theater to see every installment since they came out but i might be going to see this one alone since fiancee is like 'hail no' on seeing it together (he isnt a movie person anyway but he esp hates horror or really gory stuff, he always complains when i watch the walking dead lol) Alice, of course is my fave character, i think she kicks ass! also a lot of people had issues with the way the action was shot, really dressy, Matrix-y slow mo-y stuff. but i thought that is what made the movies! every where i read online people are saying that the movies get crappier as they go but i think they are comparing them to a game (a franchise based on a GAME come on people, were lucky they are as good as they are LOL most movies based on books csnt say that). since Im not a gamer perhaps thats why i dont have an issue with the movies being different.

    I do not play the games either, but I really like the movies too. We still need to see the latest one, can't remember the name. It is currently in our Netflix queue.

    My husband and I both like scary (zombie) movies so we watch these together as well as the Walking Dead. As long as there are no clowns...I'm okay!

    Haven't seen afterlife? That's the one you mean? What about extinction? I liked that one best, that & apocalypse, the first one was t too good. I suggest if you haven't seen the latest 2 movies then rent them from netflix, I have stars/HBO on Dish so I don't need Netflix. We're going to Wally world later today, I'm going to see if I can pick up one of the movies, hopefully Apocolypse or extinction.

    I normally don't watch zombie films, but these movies are one of my favorites. I like numbers 1 and 4 the best. I'm glad Jill is going to be back as her character was awesome in the 2nd one, but I don't understand how some characters can come back when they clearly died (like Olivera and Rain). And the one coming out doesn't have either Chris or Claire in them and I liked them.

    I don't play the games either, just like the movies. But yeah I'll still see the film when it comes out to buy....because no one in my family will see it with me. Maybe my brother, but I highly doubt it. Anyway they're cool films.

    I loved Carlos, I liked him better then Claire, call me stupid but I liked the whole.... Thing.... Love ..... Or Whatever you want to call it, I liked the chemistry that was palpable from the firt time they met .... Plus Carlos is HOT! Love his voice . Perhaps since he worked for Umbrella, they made a clone of him too.

    Groupies unite! Lol, that's why I I started this thread bc every message board I went to geared twds RE was all about the games with no love shown to the movies, I mean it's two different things ppl! Movies have to have back stories & character development.

    Also, even though we don't play the games, it could promote them too. More money for the companies and the movies, some of them, are way better too (plus they explain a lot). Yeah never thought about the clone aspect, interesting idea. I thought Wentworth Miller was cute, so I was bummed out to hear he wouldn't be in the next one. *blushes*

    Re: The Resident Evil Movies thread (WARNING might contain possible spoilers!!!)

    True, i was suprised to lesrn that a lot of the gamers hate the character alice, I was like... What??? She's awesome! I love the depth (for a thriller/action/SCFI movie that is) all the main as well as the introduced characters do, I think that's cool cuz you never know who is going to be killed off (since these types of movies tend to not develop the characters who are doomed).

    I also like how she is always looking for ppl but pushes them to arms length bc of all the death that followed her & such. I still think that killing off Carlos was the wrong thing to do, he gave her some humanity, you know? Plus his bantering btw her & his humorous 'ain't no big thang' outlook on things kept the reality that the world ended from swallowing her up.

    JMO anyway :/ .

    what do you expect from this new movie? i have a funny feeling that Alice dies since this is rumored to be the last movie.

    i still dont understand why they saved Carlos in RE 2 just to kill him off in extinction from the same damn 'affliction'... hated that!!!

    I hear Carlos and Rain maybe back in this next one, which doesn't make sense because Rain was shot in the head. How does one come back from that? And Carlos was blown up. Do they mean flashbacks or what? And I wonder what this new one will be called.

    I didn't hear anything about Alice dying, so I really can't answer your question there. I heard new characters are going to be in it and Jill is coming back. I have to see when it's coming out to theaters again even though no one will go with me to see it. I hope it's not in 3D, those glasses and popping out stuff makes me sick to my stomach. I'll stick with 2D any day!

    I haven't seen a 3D movie lately but I hear that you dont need the specs anymore though that's just hearsay.
    Well, I read they are clones, I mean both Carlos & Rain worked for umbrella so I'm sure they have their DNA on file somewhere at least that's what everyone is saying on the forums.

    Don't know if Alice dies or not ... That is just a "feeling" I get, she doesn't have her super powers anymore ... That's what also bothers me, at a time she needs them the most they take them away I was like WTH???
