    Resident Evil 2 Movie.

    Last night, I watched Resident Evil 2 the Movie on DVD, at a friend’s house.
    I’ve never really gotten into any of the games & only seen the ending of RE2 on the PS-1, when a friend completed it or me.
    But Man, that was one hell of a crap movie!
    It was even worse than the previous one!
    Luckily I didn’t pay to watch either of them…

    A very laughable experience indeed.

    It’s surprising that the Action Movie industry is still alive, with all these retarded excuses of films being released every year.


    About "Land of the Dead". I watched some trailers of this zombie movie 2-3 months ago, but I thought it was all ready out 1 month ago.
    Is Land of the Dead any goood?


    Now about RE...

    What was that Nemesis guy supposed to be in the RE3 game?
    Was he a mutated Zombie?
    What was his mission in the game & who created him?
    Does he also attack the zombies in the RE3 game, or just you?

    I would imagine he has nothing to do with the guy in the RE2 movie I saw yesterday...

    Is Nemesis the Final Game Boss of RE3?
    Judging by the film & by the looks of the Game front cover, he seems to be one mighty freckle kicking dude.
    Do you kill him in the end, or does he reappear in RE4?

    Back in 1997 my mate showed me the ending of RE2...
    The huge, uncontrollable, speeding locomotive & that gigantic mutated worm thing that would re-spawn every time it was blown up.

    I've also seen the intro of RE1, with the abominable dogs of chaos, chasing you across the fields & the spooky mansion where you flee for safety.

    There was a funny part in RE3 where a guy locks himself up in a huge metal container & refuses to follow you outside, but when you return after some time, you find him eaten up!

    These are the types of games that I would rather watch than play.

    different research program to the "normal" RE1 zombies (which have the T-virus), RE2 bosses (G-virus), RE:CV bosses (T-Veronica-virus).

    IIRC combines a "Tyrant" (badass RE1 monster) with a "Nemesis" parasite.

    What was his mission in the game & who created him?
    to destroy Raccoon City's STARS team, and (more specifically) the game's heroine Jill Valentine (one of the two playable characters in RE1). further research suggests Dr. William Birkin, a former Umbrella scientist (RE2), created the parasite. Dr. James Marcus designed the original Tyrant virus, and his team was probably behind the first Tyrant BOW's. see http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/psx/f...vil_plot_a.txt for detailed analysis, esp section 3 (virus evolution)

    Does he also attack the zombies in the RE3 game, or just you?
    just you. not that there are usually other zombies on screen at the same time. not that you'd stick about to find out, when he has virus-filled tentacles and guns and bad breath

    I would imagine he has nothing to do with the guy in the RE2 movie I saw yesterday...
    the film of RE:A has more in common with the RE3:N game than RE film and game have in common. at least he looks similar, and has a pretty similar quest.

    Is Nemesis the Final Game Boss of RE3?
    yes, but you fight him repeatedly throughout the game.

    Judging by the film & by the looks of the Game front cover, he seems to be one mighty freckle kicking dude.
    **** yes.

    Do you kill him in the end, or does he reappear in RE4?
    three blasts with a railgun, and a small nuclear warhead, settle the score with nemesis at the end of RE3:N

    These are the types of games that I would rather watch than play.
    that's what my missus says

    no

    well, with zombie films i like them to be stereotypical, thats what makes em hirlarious
    without givin too much away, having one intelligent 'leader' superzombie in land of the dead really annoyed me thruout the film

    certainly wasnt worth my 6 odd quid for the cinema

    I actually thought Land of the Dead was a very good film, whilst not as good as the Day of the Dead (no not Dawn of the Dead) it was still a breath of fresh air, I just can't stand the idea of thinking zombies so naturally those bits were a complete turn off and it was also quite repetitive in places...

    Land of the Dead while its no Sin City, its still in my opinion one of my most favourite films I've watched all year...especially as I was especting it to be utter tripe of the highest order must have made it all the better that I was proved wrong

    As the for the Resident Evil films...EEEEUUURGH!! I REALLY hate that director (bah his name escapes me), he's tarnished the reputations of three franchises namely Aliens, Predator (Aliens versus Predator) and Resident Evil, I'm sure the same director is directing the Doom movie as it bares the same hallmarks as his previous "game" to movie attempts i.e. made up elements, significantly distorted storylines etc.

    I'm really dreading the Doom movie as I passionately enjoyed the games and would hate to see this franchise horribly butchered as well...

    Paul W.S. Anderson. Currently, he's working on a third RE film (Afterlife), a game of Tecmo's Dead Or Alive beat-'em-up, and of PS1 i'm-not-grand-theft-auto-honest-'em-up Driver.

    Actually, there's not an enormous choice when it comes to directors of game films. Doom is being directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak (Romeo Must Die).

    Either way, anything's better than Uwe Boll.

    Oh, it will be. But that's because films of videogames are guaranteed to be butchered

    Spot on, mister Knox. I really enjoy bad zombie movies (and I really enjoyed the RE films), not because they're any good, but specifically because they're bad - if you approach the cinema in a giggly, silly way (and say "braaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnsssssssssss" a lot to the ushers), you'll enjoy a zombie film - and the worse the film, the more fun it is

    a film doesn't have to be schinder's list to be fun to watch - and remember, brits love to moan about things!

    The first RE film was reasonably ok but the second one was so laughably bad that I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

    I saw the land of the dead film the other day and I thought it was decent.
    It certainly has its moments in places especially with the gore which made me laugh more rather than being scared.
    Personally I preferred DOTD but LOTD is still worth a watch if you enjoyed the previous film in the series.

    I have to say that Paul W.S. Anderson is a hit or miss director when it comes to big budget films.
    Unfortunately for him it tends to be more of a miss than a hit especially with MK and RE.

    Although Doom looks kinda promising if you consider the last trailer that was released.
    But Andrzej Bartkowiak has even worse credentials than Anderson and I thought that feat was humanly impossible.

    Andrzej Bartkowiak Filmography (in no specific order of quality as they're all so bad):

    Romeo Must Die
    Exit Wounds aka Romeo Must Die pt2
    Cradle 2 The Grave aka Romeo Must Die pt3

    Aye, but expect it to be along the lines of the Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat films i.e. almost nothing to do with the games, stiff actors, actors that look anything like their game counter-parts, and characters that aren't the same nationality as the game counter-parts (I really had no idea Chun Li was Austrailian)
