two shows in a row discussing the movies ? aw come on ..
Take deep breathes AJ, we can do this
please god give me strength.
these make AVP looks great.
I know, I didn't even realize how much I referenced these movies in the podcast. I really tried to talk more about the first movie but I couldn't hold back the rage against the sequels. That would be a good site name

You guys should highlight the unintentional comedic value of "Apocalypse." I saw it for free on cable and I still felt ripped off. At least I had a good laugh at how bad it was.
For instance, the special effects were terrible. This film was released 10+ years after "Jurassic Park," yet the CGI is much, much, MUCH worse. The Lickers in the church scene were so unbelievable that I was reminded of the CGI monsters in random Sci-Fi channel original films.
Alice's ensuing "action" is equally amusing. She happens to jump a motorcycle through a stained-glass window, landing perfectly between the pews and maintaining control of the bike. I think she actually hit a Licker mid-jump. Anyway, next, she manages to speed between the pews, backflip off of the bike, and send it hurtling through the air toward a Licker. Alice then somehow manages to lose her helmet, achieve a perfect gymnast dismount, and fire rounds from her guns into the motorcycle causing it to explode in a fireball. Everyone else in the room falls down from the concussive blast, while Alice maintains her pose and holsters her weapons. (Hopefully I remembered the scene accurately...as I only remember bits and pieces of a film I have tried hard to forget entirely.)
When I see that, I do not think "COOL!" I instead shake my head & laugh and imagine the 10- to 12-year-old boys who would think the action that has transpired is "cool." Yet this film was constructed and directed by men & women 20-30 years older.
The only redeemable quality for the film is how good Sienna Guillory looks.
As for "Extinction:" never saw it, never will.
EDIT: To add onto my assessment that the special effects sucked royally - when I saw this film, I never for a second thought of Nemesis as a threatening monstrosity. All I could think was: "That's a guy in a suit" or "This was the best they could do?"

Oh boy, looks like I'll be avoiding another podcast.
i never saw extinction. i could not watch anymore after i saw apocolypse AKA beauty and the beast
Can we still send mp3 files in for the podcast? yes?
The best thing about "Apocalypse" is, the moment they announced there will be Nemesis in the film, I knew that somewhere in the film Nemesis will regain Matt's memory of his relationship with Alice and thus refuse to kill her... Few years later, while watching the film, I pat myself on the back... really, it was so predictable and so cliché...
Apocalypse was awful. A bastardize version of RE3, where Nemesis is some kind of a not-so-menacing robot-like mutant with feelings, Jill is a "tough girl" (although I was amazed that they managed to use Jill's RE3 clothes and Sienna didn't look like some kind of whore... but than again, Alice did), Carlos doesn't even look like Carlos (not to mention doesn't act like him) and S.T.A.R.S. are a bunch of idiots. And to top it all, Alice now have super powers. Really, a horror movie where a main character can easily beat the crap out of monsters in hand-to-hand fight? Even Leon couldn't do THAT. :/
Oh, and there's this comedian pimp... WTF?

Apocalypse: Nemesis is made of rubber.
Extinction: The end of the world makes you wanna smoke, and the film is about the "search for the last cigarette.
Sienna Guillory's sexiness was Apocalypse's only redeeming quality...and then, she wasn't even in Extinction.
Sienna was the best thing that it could happen in that pathetic movie.
She did a great work. In spite of they changed her personality from the game I really liked how she portrayed Jill. She loved how Jill moved her hips in REmake... ^^
