Far from being a piece of crap. It wasn't perfect but it was definitely enjoyable. I liked how it set up RE5 a bit.
Definately one of the better movies. Very cool how they set up for tricell's involvement, though i still don't get the signifigance of collecting G's claw... :huh:

NICE. I only had to go back 3 pages to find my favourite ever thread.  :lol: Long live Resident Evil!!!
Not much news I know of on the RE front. I think there's a new one coming out for PSP, which is lame, but that's about it.
Adored all the download content for RE5. Will give my review of Lost In Nightmares after I quote Shake here. The other one was okay. Costumes were SIIICK. Not that I bothered with mercenaries all over again just to use Rebecca or Barry or Excella etc, but Chris' Heavy Metal costume (which looks like a Marine from Aliens!) and Shivas fairytale/Secretary (mm) costumes were cool.

I managed to finish Lost in Nightmares in 1 hour and 13 minutes, but man, it was cool! Very nostalgic to the original RE, so much to the point that it became blatant fan service, but I was not complaining. The original "itchy tasty" journal entry is actually in there to be read! There's even a secret way to change the camera view so it's in static positions. I didn't do this when I played, but I think it's done by searching a locked door several times (ooh, Resident Evil...) The mansion layout is pretty much the same as the original mansion. The first half of LiN consists of light puzzle solving, item collecting, exploration, and backtracking, which considering where the franchise has gone lately, feels really fresh. There are maybe 10 enemies in the entire thing, including the fight with Wesker at the end. But there are some really intense moments. It was great to see the game go back to it's survival horror roots, though it was all too brief. If only RE5 was like this...
This really needs to be the direction that Capcom takes RE6. I hope they realize that fans don't want to see the series keep becoming the video game equivalent of a summer Hollywood blockbuster action flick.

Dude, I ****ing LOVED Lost In Nightmares!! The whole thing felt like a beautiful homage to the original Resident Evil. I didn't like the enemies, they were stupid and all exactly the same which took me out of it quite a bit. I wish they threw in some slow lame zombies for the same of it. That would have been great. I did the camera angle trick. It made things a little awkward but it was still very nostalgic. They even put in the door loading screens when you change the cameras!

It was like they took every memorable room from the original mansion and bunched them all together with a few fond moments. Watching Jill play the Moonlight Sonata again was like coming home. I loved it so much I even wrote a blog entry about it.

Now I want them to remake RE1 all over again!

What do we think of the trailer for the new movie
http://www.filmjunk....erlife-trailer/
In case they didn't mention, it's in 3d.  :lol:

I think it looks absolutely ridiculous and hugely entertaining, just like the rest of the movies. I can't ****ing wait to go see it. :D Apparently it's filmed with the same 3D technology as Avatar, not the tacked on hooky **** from Clash Titans/Alice Wonderland. Insane! Resident Evil in IMAX!! It's clear they took a LOT from Resident Evil 5. The zombies are Ganados now. Or Majini or whatever. The executioner is in there, and even Wesker throwing his glasses at Alice (who is behind the camera apparently). So Many shots are gonna look so good in 3D.

The best part? Some of my nerd friends and I are so excited, we're going to COSPLAY FOR THE OPENING NIGHT!!!!!
Chris, obviously. ;)

Cosplay as Chris? Have fun making your arms as big as tree trunks! Maybe punching a few boulders here and there will help...haha.

I am greatly looking forward to the new movie. I'm readying myself for a RE marathon next month where I will replay all the games and watch the films leading up to the release of Aferlife...something I've never really done. At least I have an excuse to play all those old games again. I was looking for a good cheap copy of the original RE for PS1 but I haven't found one yet.

In slightly actual RE news, I've been hearing rumors from several different places that RE6 MIGHT be going back to the series' survival horror roots. But that's all they are...rumors. I also read an article yesterday that stated Capcom are cutting the development time of all their major titles (which definitely includes the RE games) from about 3to 4 years to only 1 to 2. That sure doesn't sit well with me, since most of their major titles are pretty quality. I guess we'll be seeing RE6 sooner rather than later. I predict an announcement at or even a little before E3 2011.

You don't have a PS3 eh? You can buy RE1-3 on the PS network for 5-10 bucks. Friggin sweet. I was playing through the original recently. Man that took me back.

I didn't know they were making a 6. I figured the main story was finished up and they were just gonna move on. RE5 was great and all.. but it was practically a clone of RE4 and there's no way I wanna do that AGAIN, especially on current gen. It simply wont be a different enough experience. So they're going to have to change things up dramatically. Leave the old crew alone and start from scratch with a new survival horror, without the tank controls (otherwise the target audience is severely limited).
I didn't play Darkside Chronicles, yet, but there's an example of where they tried to do something different with the series (although technically doing shoddy remakes in first person perspective).

I did hear they were working on a RE game for PSP, which I couldn't care less about.
If you see an info, post it up for sure!

I'm sure they could find a way to continue to current story arc if they really wanted to. I wasn't really satisfied with the ending of 5 anyway. A new group of characters would be really interesting, but I think the chances of that happening are pretty slim. And yeah, Capcom would be out of their minds to go back to the tank-control scheme. I don't think it would be too hard to use the current control style, or at least something similar, and still make an old school-style survival horror game that's actually scary. Of course, I also want the incredibly ridiculous and contrived puzzles that are a staple of the genre. The last 2 games were severely lacking in that department. RE5 had ONE friggin' puzzle in the entire game.

And while RE6 hasn't been officially announced yet, Capcom hasn't said a word about them NOT doing it, and several different sources have alluded to them working on it, so I think it would be a safe bet to say RE6 is definitely happening.

Nah, I don't have one. I'd love to buy one, and while money isn't really an issue, I simply don't have the time for even more gaming, nor the space to put it and the games in. I may still buy one anyway since they are reasonably cheap these days, but not for awhile.

I just thought of this today. The main story starts in a mansion and ends... in a volcano...in Africa. They aren't even trying anymore.

Got back from seeing Afterlife 3D tonight. Not too sure how I feel about it yet (especially since my dumbass friends were talking throughout the entire thing and I was too distracted by telling them to shut the hell up), but my initial view of the movie is that it is the weakest in the series so far. Still, it was a fun movie, but I had enough issues with it to enjoy it a bit less than the others. For one, there was WAY too much slo-mo in the action scenes. Sure, a lot of the shots were pretty cool, but it ruined the flow and pacing of the action occasionally, and felt too gimmicky with the 3D. It's like the screenplay was written entirely around the 3D concept (and I wouldn't be surprised if it was). They also just tossed a bunch of stuff from RE5 in there with no real explanation, which maybe bugged me more than it should've. There were some kind of cringe-worthy moments when it came to acting...and not in the fun way like in the other films. There were, however, some good one-liners in there.

My biggest issue with the movie comes from it feeling way too short. It's actually about just as long as the others, but it feels like it's over in a flash, which is strange, considering that it's not really paced quickly in the middle. When the ending came, I was almost expecting it to go on for another 20 or 30 minutes. It did leave it open for the next film, of course. It was pretty much a variant of the ending shot from Extinction. Paul Anderson really loves his pull-away closing shots... There wasn't enough of Chris, and from what I understand, there were several of his scenes cut out. Speaking of characters, the side characters weren't as good or memorable as in the others, resulting in a less fun experience. Kim Coates was pretty funny, though.

I dunno....I want to chalk my disappointment with the movie to me simply being pissed and annoyed by having the experience ruined by my friends. I missed a lot of the dialogue because of their talking, thus the film possibly seeming shorter than it was. It's definitely something I need to see again for it to grow on me. I haven't felt like that about a movie since Gamer, which I ended up really liking the second time I saw it, so who knows...

I do think I'll still feel that it's the weakest out of all four, though. It was enjoyable, but just seemed less fun than the others. I think this movie continues to prove that Anderson is a fine director but a poor writer. I hope the next film isn't in 3D just so it feels more original and less forced.

I just saw the newest movie,I want my money back.This games movies have never been what a normal person would call "good" but the newest movie makes the older films look like they were directed by Spielberg.
