People haven't seen the movie yet, so I highly doubt we should start the complain train. But then again, what do you expect from a bunch of Capcom purists?
At least four examples in this thread alone about technical, plot, etc. issues people have that rarely touch Game - Movie connections. Anderson doesn't add anything new to these films, and yet he and others honestly believe these films to be groundbreaking. The first movie was the only one to provide a sense of horror. Now, its all about super magical powers and adding that stupid ass slow down in action scenes. That was cool...when it was first done years ago. We've progressed well beyond that now.
Stop trying to group everyone that has an issue with the movies togther as "purists" or whatever bullshit. And as I've said before...everyone makes judgements about things before they fully experience it. People are simply comparing what they are being told they are going to get (movie trailer, recent interviews) with what they have gotten in the past.
I wanna one up that with Alice running down the building from the 2nd movie but I cant seem to find a damn .gif of it
^ Although I love the films with all my heart, I too agree that building scene was truly atrocious. Sure, for a quick second it was cool and all, but it had no point [well, it did, taking out the sniper and having to make it to the chopper in time]. No point, as in, they could have done the scene differently. It seemed as though that scene was shoved in there just to look cool (in which it probably was).
The movies themselves, obviously, shouldn't be seen as Resident Evil: The Game movies. And quite honestly, I dont' think there was ever really an intention to do that. A bajillion people have said it before, and it is barely sinking in. The movies aren't meant to be seen as "Resident Evil" movies except for obscure refrences, characters, locations, enemies, etc etc. The story itself, is an abomination of the continuity.
The slow-motion scene's are going to be in every single action movie in today's cinema. People like super dramatic hairflips, and things of that nature. That's fine that you're not all for that. I'm not saying that your opinion is wrong/right. I'm saying that I have an opinion that differs from others.
I tend to actually wait, and watch the movie / play the game when it's released. And if the commotion that people ae causing over it turns out to be true? Kudos. Until then, I honestly dont' see a point in stating that the movie is going to be lackluster. From the trailer and 11 picture's we've been given, the movie doesn't look bad at all. So, until we can get a more in-depth look of the movie, I will not say that the movie is going to suck cock and balls when I'm pretty sure that it's going to be a good flick to see. Respect my opinion, I won't say shit about yours. Kapeesh?

DRAMA IN AISLE SEVEN.
Rich that you talking about respecting your opinion when you evidently don't judging by your "What do you expect from Capcom purists" line.

This one trailer and 11 pictures show me that this will be another movie similar to Apocalypse and Extinction, with forced references to the games, too much Alice, lack of atmosphere, nonsensical plot, too many slow-mo action/fighting scenes etc. The promotional materials we now have show that this will be more of the same, only in 3D. And since I didn't like the second and third movie (I've already said why), why shouldn't I be worried about this movie. I was optimistic about Apocalypse, it failed me. I was cautiously optimistic about Extinction, it failed me. Right now I rather be pessimistic about the movie instead.
Also, I know people have pointed it out before me, but it's pretty sad that you call someone out for a 'bitchfest' and then roll out the post that you just made. Take a good look in the mirror, dude. That was silly.
@Celstice Whoa, chill. Yes, some people may not like things more than others, and it may irritate others (I sometimes find the movie bashing a tad bit annoying), but it's their opinion. Not really much you can do about that.
I think everyone else pretty much summed up what I would have said but I'll just add...Wow....Celstice...really you need to work on your reading comprehension and maybe re-read what I was saying, and the examples posts I used. I never said the movies should have been based 100% off the games. If anyone is throwing a bitchfest, pretty much everyone believes that person would be you. Thanks for coming out.
And I agree Ray. I dislike the movies for many reasons, but some people seriously act like another movie is the end of the world. They may be bad movies, but they certainly aren't the worst in existance. The board has been fairly peaceful as of late, which I have been enjoying. Suddenly movie news pops up, and people are splintering off into "If you aren't with us in hating/loving the movies, you're against us", and take every little thing out of context.
A few tampon jokes and a nice little paragraph. I'm impressed. I can have an opinion, and sound off on any subject I feel like I want. So, sorry to "burst your bubble" but no, I'm not going to change my attitude just because I have gotten a few threats in PM. Do you want a fucking plaque? I'm talking about a movie, and you're talking about killing someone.
