    I would prefer to have a reputable director like Romero doing Resident Evil than Anderson anyway.

    Well, I notice a lot of folk talking about how Romero's version would have been worse because, while more likely the better horror movie, screwed the plotline. The Anderson version didn't. Which is fair enough. It wasn't a great movie but it could, just about, have been canon. They seemed to be trying for it. I could understand why they went with Anderson over Romero...

    Right up until Apocolypse. When I first heard it was being made I was actually quite interested. A tale of survivors in Raccoon City during the outbreak? Hey, I can live with that. And with no lazy beams maybe we'll have a decent horror movie. And show the true horror of Umbrella as Alice is attacked by Nemesis on his way to finish off Jill, and finds no humanity left in his mutated frame as the Nemesis Parasite completely dominantes him...

    And then the movie's cast and characters came out and a little piece of me died. Still, I figure, how bad can it be? Hey, look, it's out on my birthday...I demand Anderson give me back that birthday.

    As soon as I saw Apocolypse I started questioning why Romero was passed up when Anderson was allowed to Gang-Bang cannon in a far worse way than the Romero script did.

    We finished recording. I went a bit long on my Romero script explanation, and actually ended up summarizing the entire thing. So maybe we'll put that as its own separate download for people who want to know about it.

    The podcast should be up late Sunday. I have a lot of stuff to cull through for editing.

    I should also mention that Rombie joined us for this. It worked out, because towards the end John got a bad headache so he had to leave.

    Well...because it was crap at anything that didn't involve shooting? A story so awful it made zombies cry, because it manages to take all the elements intereting from the Raccoon City outbreak and kill them. Dead.

    - People fighting for survival? Half of them get let out by Umbrella, through the giant wall. The other half must simply cower where Alice can save them.

    - Mad scientist being insane? Noooo. He's saving his daughter, silly. Who'll die later anyway.

    - The giant wall. Just because it annoys the hell out of me.

    - Any character not named Alice having a tiny, bit part and, half the time, being there for the purpose of being saved by Alice.

    Then you have the horror elements, in what is, in theory, a horror movie. Except, really, it isn't a horror movie. It's a bad action movie and so there is no fear. Only more Alice. Do you ever feel she might be in danger? Even a little? I know I didn't. Same with Jill and Carlos, although in there case it was because Alice was there to save them.

    And, hell, the action is pretty sub-par as well when you think about it. Some scenes are decent enough but for an action movie? It's really quite lacking. Compare it to a real action movie and the scenes are too short, and too few.

    So...while it worked for you Helegad, most folk view it as having no redeaming features. Ever. At all. And since your best defence of the movie was, 'Well stuff gets shot in pretty fashion,' I don't think you're gonna way many folks. The story is crap, all characters not Alice are pale shadows of what they should be and there are plotholes you can pilot the Britania through.

    Which is sad, because if they'd simply set the movie in Raccoon City, maybe given Jill and Carlos cameos, had Nemesis kick a little ass, they'd have had plenty of room for there own plot and not simply badly butchered a story that wasn't that great to start with.

    Well whatever. I still liked it, though I agree with your point that Alice took over most of the movie.

    Dot, keep your Romero script summarization in the main podcast. No point downloading two files.

    No idea where it came from either, just happened out of the blue. I blame those smoothies I drank. Bloody pineapple, it completely took the edge out of it. Apples, bananas, limes, they all work well together. Lime is a bit zingy, but it's a necessary zing, the apples and bananas provide a decent counterpoint to the lime, and then you have this horrible bitter pineapple taste permeating through and spoiling everything. It just doesn't work, get rid of it.

    Strawberries, strawberries are good. They'll go with mostly anything, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, any of the summer fruits really. Cherries though, they're different. Now you're dealing with a whole different kettle of fish. Best to leave cherries as they are, maybe throw in some citrus fruits to give it a bit of an edge. But pineapples? Keep those out of smoothies, or any fruit-based beverage for that matter. They decimate any flavour they come into contact with, it's a bastard fruit.
    See you in hell.

    You should do a segment in RPD Dispatch 7 about smoothies.

    I think the reason why most peppole doint like Apocalypse it's just there are some corny parts in the moive I wish it's could have been longer they try to put so much in the a once and there some scens were it was a bit daff but the one thing at most fant and me got pissed off about in the film was the Nemesis turing into a good guy and getting killed by a chopper at was to simple I mean the Tyrant in the 3rd film got sliced by the lasers that was alot coller than the Nemesis getting crushed by a chopper.

    The podcast will be up in around 7 hours or so. Possibly a bit later. I ended up sleeping a lot longer than I wanted to. I'll get to editing soon.

    Hi Dot, just wondering what time you might have the podcast up?

    It's 1:00 AM here and I hope to listen to it before I snooze.

    Thanks

    Hey Shane, I don't think it'll be up in time. I'm starting editing now. We have about 4 hours of recording that I need to go through. I may just have to cut this one in half, if there isn't a lot of excess.

    No problem, I will look forward to it tomorrow hopefully, I read Romero's script a few months ago, the whole Chris not been a S.T.A.R.S member was alittle iffy in my opinion, but it definately had it's up sides.

    I think I'm just gonna go to bed, since I know the podcast will definitely be up by the time I wake up. Thanks for all the hard work Dot, I know it's a pain to go through all that recording time.
