BFI recommends a Resident Evil film on their '10 great sci-fi horror films' list

2020.09.23 23:40 ABCDABCDEZ BFI recommends a Resident Evil film on their '10 great sci-fi horror films' list
Paul W.S. Anderson’s Event Horizon (1997) would serve our purposes here, but there’s no way it’s getting picked over his masterpiece, Resident Evil: Retribution. A lithe sugar rush of conceptual and formal experimentalism, the film delivers on the fleetingly glimpsed promise of the previous film (Resident Evil: Afterlife, 2010), itself a welcome surprise given the franchise’s inauspicious origins. For this fifth entry, Anderson throws caution to the wind, dropping any pretence of narrative cohesion for a balls-to-the-wall symphony of movement and abstraction in thrall to its leading lady, Milla Jovovich.
Is this movie truly a viable candidate to list among the greatest "sci-fi horror" films? Including the mentioned Event Horizon I can somewhat understand (or at least tolerate) for its visual merits, put the Resident Evil live-action canon I've considered as a pure schlock which suffers from screeching zombies, sped-up tracking shots, electronica/modern heavy metal soundtrack, replacing make-up and gore effects with CGI; based on my experience with the original 2002 movie. The director Paul W. S. Anderson has helmed the entire series.
Two RE films are found on the Roger Ebert's "most-hated" list. To my knowledge he didn't review any more.

2020.09.13 07:19 frijolejoe clear spring in grey?

By all accounts and my own self-diagnosis I ought to be a clear spring, I think. I have pale olive skin (green undertone), medium gold-red auburny hair (dyed level 6, natural is level 7 ashy brown) and my eyes are a very clear jewelly grey-green much like Milla Jovovich, they are definitely my prominent feature. I’m by nature a low contrast person, but the combo of dyed + saturated red hair and light eyes pop.
Given my eye colour, it would make sense then that grey-greens should look okay on me but they wash out my skin tone. So with 2/3 of my features in the warm spectrum, why is grey even in the warm spring palette at all? It makes me look like death. People tell me I look sick when I wear grey or grey undertone colours. What gives? I have cool eyes and natural cool hair, it should work, auburn hair aside but it doesn’t. How do you end up with warm skin and cool eyes? So frustrating! It’s almost like I can pick my own palette just by changing my hair colour (which I do go quite a bit darker at times putting me probably into the autumn category). Anyway just wondering what’s up with the grey and why it’s in ‘my’ palette but still looks awful on me. It makes the green in my olive skin look awful. Also true white is awful on me too. Warm cream is as far as I can go.

2020.07.11 01:25 Iccotak The isekai plot of the upcoming Monster Hunter movie is Lazy and it's only being done because the military contributed to the funding.

With Anderson and Jovovich both being huge fans of the games, making a film in the Monster Hunter world was a labour of love – though knowing that audiences may be less familiar with the source material, they created Jovovich’s all-new protagonist Artemis as a way in for the uninitiated.
“I wrote the role of Artemis for Milla as the avatar for the player, so she could be a grounded, relatable real-world character who is fresh to the world of Monster Hunter,”
If they wanted to have the main character be new to the world they could have done what Tolkien or Mononoke did.
Make a place that is isolated from the rest of the world which is then disturbed by the outside world. The hero then has to leave the comfort of their home to brace the outside world. It's not that hard, it's basic writing 101.
Even the franchise already did that with Monster Hunter Stories
You don't have to make it a literal isekai (transported to another world). It comes off as bad fanfiction in the case of Monster Hunter.
imo the only reason there is an isekai plot is because of the military, and why do the military show up in this film? Because they in all likelihood contributed to the funding of the film.
Same thing happened with Transformers, military funding led to military worship in the franchise even though people wanted just the robots. Independence Day 2 was literally used as military recruiting ads.
It's a good thing the movie was delayed till next spring, maybe use it as an opportunity for reshoots and script changes

2020.06.27 07:05 NorCalAthlete Ruby Rose as Devi Morris - Fortune's Pawn (Paradox #1)?

Great book series if you haven't read it, but it seems to me this would be a great "Iron Man but in space with a bit of Han Solo and also female" movie to make.
It's got symbiote aliens, smugglers, power armor battles, all the action stuff you could want from a Marvel movie (except not Marvel), along with a pretty solid storyline with some nice twists that's still not terribly difficult to follow, and a protagonist who's a badass in her own right and doesn't need it to be forced.
I think Ruby Rose fits the book's description of Devi Morris pretty well, but I can think of a couple other actresses who'd do well in the part - Emily Blunt comes to mind, as does Charlize Theron, or it could be a good breakout change of pace for Emma Stone perhaps. I could also see Michelle Rodriguez, Milla Jovovich, Lena Headey, Kiera Knightley, or Gal Gadot in the role.
I could see Tom Hardy as Rupert, Basil would likely be CGI so just voice matters more there, Caldswell I'm not sure on - while he's a main character, I could see a wide variety of people in the role. Notably I think Charles Dance would be great for it, but then, I think Charles Dance is a fantastic actor for a lot of roles.
I dunno, thoughts anyone? Can we get a Fortune's Pawn movie made?

2020.05.31 02:23 tonnie_taller Close Encounters: The Best Alien Abduction Movies, Ranked (According To IMDb)

Read more on WordPress
In 1972, UFO researcher J. Allen Hynek created a ranking for different types of alien encounters. A close encounter of the first kind refers to physically seeing a spacecraft at close range. A close encounter of the second kind refers to seeing a spacecraft and also noticing physical impacts around you — startled animals, interference with radios, feeling heat from the craft, and so on.
RELATED: 10 Scariest Things In The Alien Franchise, Ranked
The third kind refers to alien contact. Whether you’ve encountered something humanoid or robotic, if they appear to be sentient, it’s an encounter of the third kind. The fourth kind means alien abduction, whether the participant goes willingly…or is forced. Here are the best movies about encounters of the fourth kind, according to IMDb.

10 Altered (2006) – 5.6

After the success of The Blair Witch Project, director Eduardo Sanchez took audiences back into the woods. This time, a group of men who had previously been abducted by aliens set out to hunt them down and enact revenge. The movie received mixed reviews. Many appreciated Sanchez’s ability to take elements from _Blair Witch_and make them seem fresh by creating a new context, while others claimed the film was a little too slow and didn’t have enough aliens.

9 Communion (1989) – 5.6

Author Whitley Strieber (Christopher Walken) has a terrifying night at the family cottage, where he believes he’s abducted by aliens. Afterward, unaware if it actually happened or not, Strieber’s mental health suffers. When therapy doesn’t work, he realizes he needs to confront his memories, whether they’re real or not. He soon learns that not only did the event actually happen, but that it has also happened before. The film is about coming to terms with difficult realities and the trauma they cause.

8 The Fourth Kind (2009) – 5.9

After causing massive amounts of controversy by claiming to know the cause of many missing Alaskans, _The Fourth Kind_turned out to be a rather scary film.
RELATED: Milla Jovovich’s 10 Best Movies, According to Rotten Tomatoes
It’s controversy only fueled the fire before the movie’s release, claiming to be actual footage shot by a professor at Chapman University that chronicled one woman’s abduction experience. Despite the mixed reviews, many critics praised Milla Jovovich’s performance.

7 The Circle (2015) – 6

After 50 people wake up in a dark room, they quickly learn that every few minutes, someone must die. Frantic, the group tries to escape but discovers that they actually have the power to vote who will die. The movie is an exploitation of human desperation and how uncivil we can get when put in dire situations. As the film progresses, it becomes apparent that the circle could be an alien experiment testing the limits of human psychology and sociology.

6 Dark Skies (2013) 6.3

After her family begins experiencing strange occurrences, a mother (Keri Russell) becomes desperate for answers. Lurking shadow figures, birds smashing into the house, and strange instances of sleepwalking begin tearing the family apart. Russell then realizes that these could be signs of alien encounters. She discovers that aliens are coming for one of her sons, so prepares to fight as hard as she can to save him.

5 Fire In The Sky (1993) – 6.6

_Fire in the Sky_aimed to shed light on the human experience of an alien abduction. After a group of friends encounters a UFO in the Arizonan mountains, one is abducted. Naturally, when the friends report the incident, they’re ridiculed and even accused of murdering the now-missing friend. The strength of the movie is that it focuses on character. It explores the humiliation and frustration that comes from experiencing something nobody else believes.

4 Cocoon (1985) – 6.7

In Florida, a group of undercover aliens have rented a large home and placed cocoons in the backyard pool. Little do they know that residents of the old folks home next-door regularly trespass and use the pool. As the elderly people spend more time in the cocoon-filled pool, they soon find themselves feeling younger and stronger. Eventually, the aliens must confront the people about what they’re experiencing, and the importance of keeping it a secret, so the aliens have a chance of making it off Earth alive.

3 The Phoenix Lights (2005) – 6.7

_The Phoenix Lights_was a documentary made about the infamous 1997 UFO sightings where thousands of people throughout the state watched as mysterious lights glided through the night sky in a pristine formation. One of the witnesses was even Arizona’s own Governor.
RELATED: 11 Best UFO Documentaries on Netflix Right Now
Making the event even stranger is the fact that many witnesses captured photos and videos. And with the government’s more recent release of UFO footage, more credibility is given to the largest UFO sighting in history…

2 Contact (1997) – 7.4

Based on the epic novel by the incredible Carl Sagan, Contact_tells a very unique story. While most films about alien contact involve them coming to Earth, _Contact is about Dr. Ellie Arroway (Jodi Foster), who works for the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) program. She soon begins receiving instructions on how to build a transportation device that will allow a human to travel to an alien world. Despite being anchored around aliens, the movie actually discusses the issues of religion, the human condition, power struggles, and the desperation for something more.

1 Close Encounters Of The Third Kind (1977) – 7.6

The movie that started it all. Steven Spielberg’s epic alien contact film is cited as paving the way for the modern genre. In the movie, a father is tormented by strange occurrences, which he begins to realize are aliens attempting to make contact. In his frantic search, he disregards his family and his own well-being. The movie builds to an epic climax atop Wyoming’s Devil’s Tower, where mankind finally makes their first intelligent contact with alien life using light and a now-famous five-note solfeggio. In the movie, it’s revealed that numerous missing persons had actually been abducted by the aliens, meaning that this was actually a close encounter of the fourth kind.

2020.05.31 00:23 tonnie_taller The 10 Highest-Grossing Video Game Movies Of All Time (According To Box Office Mojo)

Read more on WordPress
For almost as long as there have been video games, there have been video game movies. The first, an anime film based on Nintendo’s successful Super Mario Bros._franchise, appeared in 1986, but they really gained popularity with the releases of Hollywood hits like Street Fighter and _Mortal Kombat_in 1994 and 1995, respectively. The poorly-reviewed box-office bombs _Super Mario Bros.(the live-action one) and Double Dragon, which were released earlier, didn’t make much of an impact.
RELATED: 5 Upcoming Video Game Movies That Could Be Great (& 5 That Would Probably Fail)
Despite this sudden rise in popularity, however, video game movies have a negative trend associated with them. Most receive poor reviews from critics, and many are box-office bombs. However, that’s not to say none of them manage to make it to box-office glory; many of them have. Here are the 10 highest-grossing video game movies ever made, based on data collected from Box Office Mojo.

10 Tomb Raider (2018) – $274 Million

A reboot of the film franchise of the same name, 2018’s Tomb Raider stars Alicia Vikander as the titular character, Lara Croft, who discovers a centuries-old mystery when investigating her father’s disappearance.
RELATED: 5 Reasons Why Street Fighter (1994) Is The Best Video Game Movie Of The 90s (& 5 Why It’s Mortal Kombat)
While the film polarized critics (especially on the topic of Croft’s character), it was a relative financial success, making $274 million worldwide on a budget of around $100 million.

9 Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001) – $274 Million

2001’s _Lara Croft: Tomb Raider_stars Angelina Jolie in the titular role, as she travels across the globe to keep the Illuminati from obtaining an ancient artifact that could bring about the end of the world.
RELATED: 10 Best Video Game Movies, Ranked According To Rotten Tomatoes
While it received mixed to negative reviews from critics, it was a fairly large box office success, grossing $274 million worldwide and earning a sequel, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – The Cradle of Life, in 2003.

8 Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010) – $300 Million

Despite receiving largely negative reviews from critics, the Resident Evil film franchise – based on the sci-fi horror video game series of the same name – has been hugely successful at the box office. The fourth installment, Resident Evil: Afterlife, was released in 2010 and follows protagonist Alice (played by Milla Jovovich) as she attempts to rescue the survivors of the previous film’s T-Virus outbreak.
The film made more than $300 million worldwide, on a budget of just $60 million.

7 Sonic The Hedgehog (2020) – $306 Million

Based on the popular Sega video game series of the same name, 2020’s _Sonic the Hedgehog_seemed destined to fail from the start. After the first trailer’s release, fans called out the many problems with Sonic’s creepy character design, leading to the film being postponed in order for the VFX artists to fix the problem.
RELATED: The 1o Best Video Game Movie Villains Of All Time (Including Dr. Robotnik)
Surprisingly, this actually worked, and the film went on to make more than $306 million at the worldwide box office.

6 Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2016) – $314 Million

The sixth installment of its eponymous film franchise, 2016’s aptly-named _Resident Evil: The Last Chapter_ follows spy gone rogue Alice as she leads the T-Virus survivors to one final stand against Umbrella, the mega-corporation that created the pandemic.
While it received mixed reviews from critics, the film did surprisingly well at the box office, making more than $312 million worldwide and becoming the franchise’s highest-grossing installment to date.

5 Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time (2010) – $336 Million

The action-adventure video game series _Prince of Persia_definitely seemed like an unlikely candidate for a feature film adaptation, but one happened anyway – and, surprisingly, it wasn’t that bad, at least not for the video-game-adaptations genre.
The film, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, follows Dastan, a prince in ancient Persia who finds a dagger that allows him to travel through time. Despite being made on a whopping budget of $150 million, the film managed to make $336 million at the box office, and it briefly held the title of the highest-grossing video game movie ever made.

4 The Angry Birds Movie (2016) – $352 Million

A bouncy, kid-oriented film adaptation of the video game about birds who launch themselves at their pig enemies via slingshot, _The Angry Birds Movie_wasn’t a big hit with critics, to say the least.
However, there was enough of an audience to void any damage the poor reviews might have done, and the film made $352 million worldwide – enough to earn a (significantly better-reviewed) sequel in 2019.

3 Rampage (2018) – $428 Million

Based on the classic arcade game of the same name, 2018’s _Rampage_stars Dwayne Johnson as Davis Okoye, a primatologist who becomes friends with a highly intelligent albino gorilla who is growing larger by the day as the result of a dangerous genetic experiment. After similar monstrous creatures begin appearing all over the world, Okoye and his primate pal will have to stop them in order to prevent mass destruction.
While the film received mixed reviews from critics, The Rock’s star power carried it to new heights. It finished its theatrical run with a monumental $428 million worldwide gross.

2 Detective Pikachu (2019) – $433 Million

The first Pokémon film to combine live-action and animation, 2019’s _Detective Pikachu_stars Ryan Reynolds as the title character, a Pikachu with amnesia who hopes he can recover his lost memories by pursuing his only lead – a man named Tim Goodman, whose father has recently disappeared.
The film received mixed-to-positive reviews from critics and was hailed as a stark improvement on the drab monotony of video game cinema. It grossed more than $433 million worldwide, and a sequel is currently in development.

1 Warcraft (2016) – $439 Million

Based on the record-breaking video game franchise of the same name (known for housing the world’s most popular MMORPG of all time, World of Warcraft), the 2016 film _Warcraft_finds the worlds of orcs and humans colliding, creating a conflict of epic proportions.
While it received mostly negative reviews from critics, the film found some solace in its impressive box office performance. With a worldwide gross of $439 million, it surpassed Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time as the highest-grossing video game movie ever made.

2020.05.02 12:01 keyronin List of Movies and TV Series That Mention Nepal

I decided to make this list to utilize my time. It's imperfect and incomplete. After spending more than a day on it, I started to think this is a stupid idea. I guess that killed my drive. But I still couldn't move on without sharing the work I've done.
I've tried to avoid major spoilers in the description which I wrote with the help of IMDb and Wikipedia. I haven't watched all of the entries.
The list only has fictional English movies and TV series and that too incomplete. Someone could make a massive list if they research more and include movies and series made in other languages, documentaries, and videogames.
By "Nepal", I mean anything that Nepal is known for.
There are some movies that refer to the Himalayas but they aren't specific to Nepal, so I've left those movies out. They are Smallfoot (2018) and The Bucket List (2007).

2020.04.24 16:11 LundgrensFrontKick Movies with "Perfect" in their title have a 54% Tomatometer average. Movies with "Zero" in their title have a 65% Tomatometer average.

That's it.
With Five Perfect Movies trending, I was curious to see if Perfect/Zero movies were "better." I pulled the data on the 46 "Perfect" and 34 "Zero" movies that have Tomatometer scores.
Movies Like The Perfect Man (6%), Perfect (19%), Perfect Stranger (10%), Perfect Holiday (17%) and The Perfect Score (16%) hurt the overall "Perfect" average.
"Zero" movies (34 total) have Zero Dark Thirty (91%), Zero Effect (64%) and Ceiling Zero (100%) helped "Zero" movies have a Fresh average.
If you're looking for a "Perfect" movie check out The Perfect Getaway with Timothy Olyphant, Milla Jovovich, Chris Hemsworth and Steve Zahn. It's fun. I also really like The Perfection with Allison Williams. It's a gnarly flick.
Also, the list will change tomorrow, but here's my perfect movies that hopefully aren't too obvious
  1. Green Room
  2. Deep Blue Sea
  3. Seven Samurai
  4. Hot Fuzz
  5. The Thing

2020.03.26 16:18 Mahaloth I watched the Resident Evil series of movies so you don't have to(but three of them were pretty good). My thoughts.

Until the recent shutdown/lockdown, I had never seen a single Resident Evil movie. I knew that they existed; I was even vaguely aware that Milla Jovovich was in most of them(she is, in fact, in all of them). I just had never managed to see one. I’d heard the negative reviews, but I have actually played one of the games(Resident Evil 4) and have always been a little bit curious about the series. I was happy to see that the series had ended with an actual planned final movie. Anyway, I’ve been locked up like many of us and decided to go ahead and run the series.
Overall thought(TLDR): The first three movies are pretty bad, but the final three movies are decent, even kind of good. The last two movies are the best of the bunch.
My thoughts on the series:
Resident Evil: 3/10 Here is the thing about this one. The premise is actually totally fine. Bunch of people trapped in an underground lab with zombies. An evil A.I. not allowing them to leave. All totally fine concepts that could make a great zombie movie. However, the issues in this movie are:
The characters are all boring and generic. Alice(Jovovich) will eventually be somewhat interesting as the series develops, but in this movie she and the other characters are dull. Terrible characters, cliche dialogue, nothing to work with. Little blame to the actors, but the director did nothing to help them move beyond “people saying lines”. I should point out that Alice, our lead protagonist, is unnamed in the movie and we only learn her name in the closing credits. I think that says something about the effort put in. The movie feels amateurish. Badly edited, hard to follow action, annoying music, uninspired cinematography. If someone told me this as a straight-to-DVD movie, I would not have questioned it at all. It looks like one.
Note: The final 15-20 minutes are a huge improvement. Once the primary crisis is over and Alice ends up a lab experiment, things begin to pickup. Just in time for the movie to end. An adequate cliff-hanger, but hardly worth the entire movie.
Resident Evil: Apocalypse: 4/10 This movie was actually panned even more severely than the first movie, but I found it to be a slight improvement. The cliffhanger development at the end of the first movie(Alice has been enhanced with powers) is actually enough to make this movie somewhat interesting. However, the amatuer level of film-making continues in this movie, as does the subpar directing. Not a single character is memorable…..well, except now for Alice, who becomes more interesting not because she does anything engaging, but because mildly interesting things happen to her.
I would suggest Apocalypse is where the main series begins. It attempts some action sequences, mostly missing from the first movie, and Alice has a few cool moments.
Again, the ending is somewhat intriguing, but with this movie, we do kind of feel like we watched 60+ minutes of boredom to setup something intriguing at the end. Will it happen again in the third movie?
Resident Evil: Extinction 5/10 Mad Max 2 + Zombies - George Miller = Resident Evil: Extinction
Honestly, it should be required to watch Mad Max 2 before watching this movie. It is more than an homage to the Mad Max movies; it’s an attempt to copy it and add zombies in. It is only mildly successful in this attempt. It kind of feels like a Mad Max movie, but ends up serving to show why George Miller is essential to those movies. This movie(same director as Highlander!) just feels like the screenwriter said, “Hey, can we make Mad Max...but kind of cheaper looking and with a few zombies in it?”
The movie is still an improvement over the first two in the series. It is much more watchable and the series definitely does not look like a DVD movie anymore. The cinematography is greatly improved and this movie is edited much clearer than the previous two entries.
Once again, and I am sounding like a broken record, it is the lack of compelling characters that is killing this series. I like Alice and I like Jovovich in these movies, but the movies deeply rely on our familiarity with that character instead of actually show her do anything interesting.
Resident Evil: Afterlife - 6/10 This is the first Resident Evil movie I would suggest is good. How good? Well, not good enough that it fixes all of its issues. We still have actors acting without conveying any clear character traits. However, the set pieces in this movie are more interesting and if there was not a major budget increase on this movie, they learned how to use their money more effectively. If the third movie looked better than the previous two, this one finally looks like a fully made modern movie.
Oh, this one imitates the Matrix. What is it with Resident Evil movies imitating far better action movies from 10-20 years before it(Mad Max 2 and The Matrix). This movie has a villain that is imitating Agent Smith and has at least one sequence of bullet time.
Despite being a decent movie, any movie that imitates another film really shines a bright spotlight on itself. Is Resident Evil Afterlife even close to as good as The Matrix? No. Definitely not. Is Resident Evil Afterlife the first actual RE movie that can be enjoyed above the level of campy schlock? Yes. Just barely.
Note: If you do not enjoy RE: Afterlife even a little, quit. This is pretty much peak Resident Evil movie stuff.
Resident Evil: Retribution - 6/10 Well, what do you know? This is actually a decent action movie. One common trait of the previous movies that I have failed to mention is that they all contained major sections of boring stuff that honestly bogged the whole thing down. This movie pretty much got rid of all of that and focused on the action and it is much better for it. I would genuinely engaged with the final 30-45 minutes of this movie, which is non-stop action, but is actually really well done.
I criticized the editing of the first couple of movies in this series and all of that is not only improved, but vastly improved in this movie. I’d say this movie films and edits its action sequences better than many movies out there today. The Fast and the Furious movies get a lot more attention than this series, but this movie is quite a bit better than most of the F&F movies.
What a journey it has been up to this point. The first three movies are mainly forgettable, but I found as I reached the end of the 5th movie, I actually was looking forward to the final film. What a surprise.
I think that this series could be viewed as a “how to learn to make a Resident Evil movie” series. They had no idea what they were doing in the beginning, but seem to have found their way right around the 4th and 5th movies.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter - 7/10 I have to give it to the RE filmmakers. After many attempts, they appear in the final few films to have actually made something that qualifies as a decent series of movies and the final movie is probably the best one of the bunch.
This movie actually deals with the core story built up over the course of all six movies. Who is Alice? Will they be able to finally end the zombie virus? Strangely, they resurrect the main antagonist she killed a few movies ago(and do so very lamely), but it…..almost… In fact, I think all of it does kind of work.
This movie was solid and served as a good final movie in the series. I am glad the whole thing wraps up here and for people who manage to get through the first few movies, this one serves very well as a final episode.

2020.02.13 05:34 Techhousedj Is the new RE movie reboot or Netflix series doomed?

Capcom has hired Paul W S Anderson to direct its “Monster Hunter” movie and guess who the star of that movie is? His wife Milla Jovovich. Now with that coming to fruition later this year. Do you think that the upcoming movie reboot and or Netflix series of resident evil will be a flop based upon the decision to work with paul and milla to make another capcom movie adaptation?
Will capcom redeem itself like they did with RE7 and the remakes? Or are they a lost cause in regards to movie making and series?

2020.02.02 05:29 WrAIter [WP] The Purge has ended. Unfortunately, nobody told Jason Voorhees about that. Now people are afraid to go out during the Purge because of him, becoming a symbol of hope for the lower class.

The Purge has ended. Unfortunately, nobody told Jason Voorhees about that. Now people are afraid to go out during the Purge because of him, becoming a symbol of hope for the lower class. After the Purge, Jason appears and mocks the survivors, saying that his "Purge" isn't a Purge at all. The Purge has never been over. He's just a poor boy who loves to party. But his Purge's just beginning.
The Night Before Purge
Main article: Ringer
A new Purge has been planned. It's going to occur one full night after the last Purge. After the last Purge, everything in the city has changed. The citizens are frightened. Some have fled the city and some are afraid to go out at all. The police don't care. They're afraid of the people. So they've turned up the police force to "normal". They've turned it into a force of fear instead of a force of order. It's a perfect storm. The citizens are terrified. The police are scared of the civilians. The government is now terrified of the citizens. It's a perfect storm of chaos and fear. And Jason Voorhees has been invited to be a part of it. The Night Before Purge is a full-on horror movie. It's the night before the Night Before Purge.
The Purge has arrived.
Main article: Purge
The Night Before Purge is the third part of the third film in the Jason Voorhees franchise, The Purge. It was released on May 15, 2015. It was directed by Fede Alvarez and stars Rylance, Sharlto Copley, and Michael Parks. It was the sequel to The Purge: Anarchy.
It is a horror film with elements of the popular action films of the 1980s. Its main character is Jason Voorhees, the main antagonist in the previous games, The Purge: Anarchy and The Purge: Election Year. Voorhees has returned after being captured by the FBI in the previous film.
The Night Before Purge has a lot of similarities to The Purge 3D, which was released on May 20, 2015 and was directed by Fede Alvarez and starred Sharlto Copley, Milla Jovovich, and Keanu Reeves. Both films have a lot of special effects and special effects that will make your blood run cold.
The Night Before Purge was released on Blu-ray and DVD on October 20, 2015. It was released on Blu-ray and DVD on November 6, 2015.

2020.01.21 13:06 MishxnMishxn Top-down resident evil-like shooter?

Dear, redditors, thank you for reading and helping in advance! This has been bothering me for years, but yesterday I’ve found out about this sub, so I’m hoping to finally find that game.
So, it goes like this. At the time of writing this, I am 18, but at that time I was about six. It was a cool strange horror game that you could run on a windows xp pc(not a browser game). It didn’t look like a ps1 game with it’s low-poly aesthetic, but rather like a much more detailed pixel game. Like if snes games had a next-gen or something. Aesthetic-wise it reminds me of the resident evil movies with milla jovovich, since It’s a girl running around dark corridors of labs and factories in almost darkness making quick bursts of light by shooting guns(I think two pistols in two hands). By the way, monsters and zombies(?) were certainly there. It had a top-down view, but not like the usual, the camera was tilted a bit, so it always felt like the monsters came out of nowhere.
I don’t want to just ramble or confuse anyone, but if I manage to remember something worthy, I’ll add it in the comments. Thank you!

2019.12.18 08:24 TripleNegative7 For the RECord: Regarding the R3Make's character designs.

This is REgarding the RE3 Remake’s character design choices and why my reaction to seeing them has been very bittersweet. Forewarning, this will be a lengthy post and a TL;DR: will be attached at the end if you don’t want to read this because A) the topic has already been beaten to death or B) you feel that your time is better spent elsewhere. I completely understand either of those choices, or for that matter, any other choice I just didn’t include.
Let me further preface this post by giving out a little information about myself and why some things bother me and other things simply don’t. First and foremost: I’m a long time fan who is incredibly excited for the R3Make, so much so that the only reason I didn’t pre-order a collectors’ edition is because with my current financial situation, I simply can’t justify spending 180$ on a video game, even one I’m very interested in. I’ve got every achievement in the Resident Evil 2 Remake (except the new Jill Letter one, but I’ll rectify that later) and have played through it countless times now getting S+ on every difficulty and run. I even got the infinite ammo in the ghost mode, not because I’m good at games, but through sheer force of will. This is important because, despite not being crazy about the original PSX RE2 at the time of its release, I was SO impressed with its remake that it is easily in my top three-four favorite Resident Evil games and gives me SO much hope that Capcom will continue to do the fantastic work they did on RE1 and 2 with 3, my favorite Resident Evil Game.
Resident Evil is a sentimental franchise for me, I was 8 at the time of its release on the PSX, and at the time, was too scared to play the game on my own. Instead, I watched my older brother and cousin play it and have most of my earliest memories enjoying getting jump-scared while watching them try to figure out the puzzles. It wasn’t until the game’s director’s cut that I attempted it by myself, but even after renting it, when I was instant killed in the bathroom as Jill I couldn’t find the strength to play it all the way through. I eventually went back and beat RE1, and RE2 for that matter, but not before I completed RE3 Nemesis. It was the first experience I completed on my own. That’s probably why I see a lot of the features in the game with rose-colored lenses, and maybe why the following titles appealed less to me.
I was not a fan of the direction the franchise took after that. I enjoyed the gameplay of CV:X, but I despised many of the characters (Steve, John Woo Wesker, Alfred) and liked some of the plot points even less, like now super-agent Claire and how Chris just suddenly shows up and goes hand to hand with afore mentioned John Woo Wesker. I respect RE4 for revitalizing the franchise, and could see promise in the 3rd person perspective, but again, I didn’t like how the characters were now super soldiers, how the villains were caricatures; stereotypical bond villains, and how they simply brushed Umbrella aside after the buildup of “UMBRELLA IS GOING DOWN!” at the ends of 3 and CV:X.
I also did not enjoy 5 or 6 for many of the same reasons and was for the most part done with the franchise. I did like Umbrella Chronicles. It was fun to play with my friends and for the trip of exploring the older games with a new look on them. I also liked Revelations 1 and 2. They seemed like less violent offenders of the action gene, because 1 had my favorite RE Character, Jill in it, but mostly because I think Raid Mode is the best, most fun RE Minigame ever implemented into the franchise and I hope we see a Triple A, very robust release of it in the future.
This is my first post on a site like this and I will probably repost this to a couple places just to get the word around. I don’t usually respond to things online but I do tend to search my opinion online just to see if I’m an alien I guess. It’s kind of like self-diagnosing if you have a symptom. I don’t know why I care, but I do. However, I still probably won’t respond much if at all to any criticisms or agreements in any posts that follow this. For me, writing this is cathartic. It’s more for my benefit than it is for anyone else’s. I’m not trying to change anyone’s mind. I don’t have the delusion that I can change anyone’s mind, and I have zero hopes that any of my complaints will be rectified before the R3Make’s release, and maybe they shouldn’t if enough people don’t agree. This isn’t just my franchise and I have to share the world I live and breathe in. I know many of you are just as, if not even more, passionate about this game as I am and many of you, maybe even most of you, like the new design choices of this game.
Preface aside, it’s time to get into the meat and potatoes of this post-turned-essay. I’ll start it off by just saying this: I’ve wanted the R3Make ever since the REMake. I’ve wanted it maybe even more than any other game I’ve ever wanted to come out, but when I saw the initial reveal of the poster and the redesigns of the three main characters I was severely conflicted. On one hand, I was like, “TAKE MY MONEY CAPCOM!” but on the other, I was honestly, really disappointed with the new art direction. The blunt of my discussion will focus around Jill’s design, but make no mistake I had qualms with all three. I didn’t like Nemesis’s oblong teeth or that his head wasn’t split down the center with the staples and the bulging eye. I really didn’t like the crooked nose his other Tyrant brothers must have given him when they played a rather sadistic game of, “I’ve got your nose,” with him.
Carlos is probably the worst offender of the trio, because I honestly, truly, deeply, would have had no idea that was Carlos if he was not on the cover of the RE3 game. I’ve seen people draw references to like Anime Characters or video game characters, and while I can’t speak to the validity of that as I don’t watch Anime and I haven’t played games like Tekken in ages, it certainly didn’t look like Carlos to me. However, I will agree that Carlos needed something. Even as someone who adored Nemesis, he just didn’t stand out very much. He looked like the Hispanic version of Leon and didn’t have much of an identity in the game beyond, “I’ll save you Jill!” “I’m sorry Jill!” To that end, I’m completely open to a redesign of Carlos, I just wished that, given that they are obviously going for a more realistic approach to the game (with some Exceptions… ADA…) that he had a haircut that benefited or looked like an actual contract merc.
Don’t get me twisted here, I’m not one to pick out every silly thing in the franchise because if I did I would hate the game. Even my favorite characters are not immune. Jill had some of the campiest dialogue and her backstory is complete, 100% bullshit. DELTA doesn’t accept women, not now, not in the 90’, and even if they did, she would have been in her 30’s by the time the Army let her go if they ever took her seeing as you have to be 21 and an E-4 to get in, usually have to renew your contract, and have at least 2.5 years of service left before they’ll even agree to train you. But I can overlook these things. I understand that this game was written and read like a 80’s B rate action-horror title. That’s part of its charm, or at least it was, until it’s now picking and choosing what is realistic and what isn’t.
I kind of feel like there’s a small identity crisis happening with the RE-Imagining of Resident Evil. I say this because they make Ada’s design less practical, but make Claire’s design more practical. They make Carlos’s design less practical and they make Jill’s design more practical. I’ll just say this, I kind of wish for a large portion of RE3 Carlos has a helmet on. Not because I don’t like his hair (which I don’t) but because he’s a mercenary and I think that would be practical of him to have. Under that helmet he could have like, a military high and tight, or a fade hair style, or even a bandana like Joseph Frost. Lowkey, I always kind of thought Carlos was a bit like Joseph and maybe that’s why Jill was so okay with working with him despite him being with Umbrella was because how she watched Joseph get eaten in front of her.
I’ll also just say this because I know people will talk about the classic look. I think the weird angle of Carlos’s classic look makes it look really unfavorable. Not to mention how much junk he has on his chest there. I like Carlos’s beard and wish there was some middle ground between the two and when it comes to which of his two in game looks I like more, I will definitely need some better and more flattering angles to decide.
Jill. What can I say about her? She’s not only my favorite character in the RE Franchise, but she’s one of my favorite fictional characters of all time. She’s up there with Samus, Ripley, Severus Snape, Bridget Jones, and…. Keanu Reeves. Yes, yes, I know, Keanu isn’t fictional but someone that amazing reads like one. With Jill being mostly squares and obvious pixels in the PSX games, I obviously did not mind when she was updated to the Julia Voth model. I thought she looked amazing, bags under her eyes like she’s traumatized, bright, opulent blue eyes and with enough steel and grit in her features to genuinely look like a hardass. In my opinion, with her being part Japanese, I always thought her decidedly Eastern European looks seemed unusual, but it was just another thing I overlooked and genetics can be weird after all. In truth and at risk of giving off a bad take, I was probably more attached to her because she didn’t show her Asian lineage. I guess there is some truth to this whole representation thing, after all.
After REMake, it felt like the franchise had a generalized look for Jill. Sharp features, bright blue eyes, but a soft chin. She also had obvious curves, especially in the hips, but as these features heavily change from entry to entry depending on the amount of fanservice Capcom wants to dole out that year, I won’t bother mentioning them again. Julia was seen in a few games. Her likeness was noticeable in RE5 and Umbrella Chronicles, and even when it wasn’t Julia portraying the face, there was still enough in common with them that it wasn’t too far of a stretch to think that it was Jill. You can see this in just about every iteration of Jill, including Revelations, the Teppen game, fighting games, merchandise, whatever. For basically two decades there was this general idea of what a Jill Valentine should be, and now there’s this..
Before I get into what I think Jill gets right and what she doesn’t, let me just say that this phenomenon isn’t unique to Jill. In the Resident Evil Franchise, Chris received lots of backlash when he became a roid user, and again when he was suddenly Barry Burton in RE7. Claire also received a lot of backlash because of how fluffy her cheeks and lips looked in the Remake (it made her look really young I think.) It’s not unique to the RE Franchise either, just about every fandom will speak out when a character they like receives a drastic makeover. What’s interesting about redesigns is this, characters like Leon or Ada didn’t receive the same backlash and I believe that’s because they generally keep the soul of their appearance in ways that Jill, Carlos, Chris and Claire did not. There are a lot of really bad takes on both sides of the fence here when it comes to redesigns and I chalk that up to the nature of the internet.
People who say that the new designs look like men or are ugly are in my opinion talking out of their asses and over exaggerating to get their points across, but the same could be said for every white knight that says that people who don’t like the change are just sad that they can’t wank it to her in their neckbeard command center anymore. Come on, who really does that? Can’t we have an honest discourse about the direction of a franchise we’re all clearly passionate about without devolving to base insults? It’s okay to not like something, and if you don’t like something that doesn’t mean you have to not like the people who do, or bash on their lifestyle and the things they like.
Jill. Again. My first criticism of Jill is that she has a little issue of consistency. You can see this when you look at just about any post ever and they’re like… Hey she looks like X Actress from this angle. I’ve seen her called Natalie Portman, Winona Ryder, Milla Jovovich, Ruby Rose, and countless others. It’s silly to think that one girl can look like just about every girl right? Well, honestly no, and in many instances I can totally see where these individuals are coming from. Jill does look like Winona Rider on the cover art. She does look a bit like Ruby Rose in front of the mirror, and in the train sections, she absolutely looks like Milla Jovovich. People might not care that Jill now looks like this character or that character, but this genuinely becomes a problem when people stop thinking the most simple thought, “That looks like Jill.”
What a “Jill” looks like is of course entirely subjective, but in my definition I laid out earlier, Jill had very weathered, Eastern European features and signature blue eyes. Wild blue eyes, even. Freaking PTSD, “I’VE SEEN THINGS,” eyes. The redesign of Jill, in the images we have seen, has deep blue eyes. The darkness of the environments (which is another fault I have, but is levitated because I do like to be scared) leaves little room for lamination and color. Everything is drab and the color scales aren’t as vibrant as the other outside of a few contrasting environments. This makes her eyes look brown in most of the images. In truth it’s only in the extreme close-ups and the mirror image that you can see her eyes are blue at all. They’re also very inset which is quite different. In combination to the new curvature of her eyes, the softness of her eyebrows, and her ‘brown’ eyes, I want to say that she’s showing off a bit of her Japanese ancestry. Either that or, when combined with the new convex shape of her nose, she looks Greek.
Now, like I said earlier, it always struck me as odd she never showed that side of her ancestry, and maybe they’re trying to rectify that now in the redesign, but she absolutely, unequivocally, looks like someone else entirely. I think it’s absolutely fair that people are alarmed by, dislike, or are on the fence about her new design. It’s just odd to me, that now, after twenty plus years, they’re finally going to start acknowledging that she isn’t actually Eastern European in ancestry. The shift is jarring to say the least, and I don’t like it. I don’t like it because it’s nothing like how I’ve seen her before. This has nothing to do with how attractive the girl is. She’s obviously attractive. Every main protagonist is attractive.
To backtrack a little, but this deserves a point in and of itself and is another criticism of her design: she looks like Milla Jovovich. Now, I like Milla as an actress. I loved Joan of Arc and Fifth Element. Who doesn’t want a Multi-pass? But consciously or unconsciously making Jill look like Milla, or should I say ALICE, is going to be a point of contention. Part of this, most of this, is because of the hair style and I’ll talk more about that later, but she does. She looks like Milla. Milla isn’t an ugly girl. She’s an attractive woman. I can’t overstate enough that this isn’t about how attractive this person is or isn’t, but Alice as a character, love or hate the movies, made the other characters into running punchlines. I absolutely do not like the Resident Evil movies (beyond the first one sans wall jump kick) for the same reasons why I didn’t like CV:X-6. Many people hate these movies with a passion, so why then is her likeness popping up on one of the most popular characters in the franchise?
Let’s get back to that hair though. In some angles it looks basically plastic (heavy amounts of mousse) because of how it retains shape with how her head moves and shifts. It is… stuck to the back of her ear when she’s moving, because as you watch her run, you notice all the bobbling of her hair. I actually hate the physics of her hair and will be more distracted by its shape and bounce then maybe anything I will rant about in the game, ever. If her passive animation doesn’t move it pack behind her ear every time she moves, then I don’t know what to say. It would hold that shape for all of three seconds, or until she moved the next time. I don’t see any hair pins, she’s being INCREDIBLY active and it shows. Her hair has so much shape and volume that it literally bounces as she runs, which means it’s going to be in her eyes all day every day. I see everyone talking about the realism of her outfit, and I’m like, “But what about that hair?”
I can’t imagine shooting guns and being paranoid about zombies while my hair is actively tickling my cheek and ear, getting in my eyes, and honestly, I don’t know what they’d even do about it. I don’t know how they could correct it. With that amount of hair, with the humidity of September in the mountains and with the amount of physical exertion she’s going through, of course her hair is going to be frizzy. I’m genuinely surprised it isn’t actually like Carlos’s given she’s been out for days in that hell. So what could they have done? They could have given her more hair like they did with her ORC design, or they could have given her a more traditional Jill 3 cut with some hair pins. I think they didn’t want to make her look too similar to Ada and so now we have this look. Any ways, I don’t like it, and not just because it makes her look like Milla.
Finally, the thing everyone wants to talk about, the outfit. I don’t mind that it looks like Claire’s without her coat and I don’t mind that it looks a bit like Lara Croft’s from her first reboot game. I’m going to parrot what a lot of people I’ve read say by pointing out that they kind of lost a bit of her identity. In Resident Evil, the characters are color coded. I don’t know how many people noticed this, but in the early games, Chris and Carlos are green, Jill is light blue, Ada and Claire are red, Leon deep blue, Barry is white and red, ect. Let’s take Claire’s redesign for a second, and here I’ll brag on Capcom. They modernized her look, (but kept it 90’s) and kept her defining RED color (atleast for 75%ish of the game). She was recognizable and had a very memorable outfit. Leon kept his RPD outfit and it doesn’t get any more iconic than that, but what about Jill?
Well she honestly needed a outfit update. I straight up always thought it was silly that she’s going around in a miniskirt. I liked the idea that she was in her civilian clothes, but again, in the story, there were days leading up to the events of Resident Evil 3 that gave a lot of signs that it wasn’t time to go and hit the club. Now, you may ask, why did Jill wait so long to leave the city and it kind of makes sense then that maybe it all just sprung up around her, but there’s a severe disconnect in the timeline and Jill’s statements like.. “How are there already so many?!” Whichever train of thought you subscribe to; I always wondered why Jill didn’t cut her thighs and shins climbing over broken glass and the like, so I was happy to see some adjustment. Though, in the defense of mobility, and mind you a miniskirt isn’t the same as what ancient warriors used, but depending on the fabric of the skirt you could make a case here. Ancient Roman and Greek Warriors had a skirt of pteruges to protect their femoral arteries while giving them full mobility in battle, but I would still prefer a nice pair of jeans for Jill. In truth, I personally thought Jill looked her best in her BSAA and Snow outfits. Those are my favorite looks for her, and a nice homage to her BSAA outfit (Baby blue and pragmatic) would have been preferable to what we actually get here.
Back on color, yes Jill’s outfit is blue, but again, because of the muted pallet of the environments, is it blue enough? I will need to see a lot of game footage and digest this before I make my final decision, but as of right now, I don’t think it is. It’s not Claire’s signature red. It’s not Leon’s signature blue. It isn’t eye catching at all, and yes you can be eye catching without giving shots of ample cleavage or thigh gap. Her outfit is just okay, and again, to parrot what I’ve read, she looks like a pallet swap of endgame Claire, or in many ways, Lara Croft. I do think if they brought back her tied on hoodie/sweatecardigan it would be more of a signature look. I also think they need to brighten her outfit up, and I genuinely hope that as the game progresses she gets her shoulder holster, or even some more armor. These features will help set her apart as the protagonist I grew up with and adore.
So that’s my thoughts on the design, and yes, it was an ENORMOUS wall of text by post standards, but I feel better having put the thoughts bouncing around in my head down on print and who knows, maybe I’m not the only one that feels this way. I love the franchise, am excited to get my hands on this game, but I also feel that it’s getting some very legitimate criticisms. So 12 pages, 4100~ words and a lot of cathartic relief, I’m going to end this here. As promised I’ll give you all a TL;DR: because I don’t expect everyone, or anyone to read this.
TL;DR: It’s perfectly fine to share criticisms about something we all love and are passionate about. These criticisms go over better when we don’t exaggerate our points to the extreme or insult those that don’t agree with us. Jill is awesome and I’m excited for the game, but if I had creative oversight on this project I would have made her design more in line with what we’ve seen in past Jills while updating her outfit, I would definitely make Nemesis more familiar, and I would give Carlos a more practical haircut. Oh! And me having this opinion, or just because anyone feels this disenchantment with the characters’ new looks, does not make them a mouth breathing basement dweller. Have an awesome time everyone and I hope you all enjoy the game as much as I hope to!

2019.11.19 03:35 XavierSarkisian who should play characters in a movie based on Old Republic Revin?

Who do you guys think should play who in a movie based on the Old Republic Revin story?

i can see Gary Oldman as Vitiate and Milla Jovovich as Darth Nyriss.
Who do you think should play people like Sourge, Revin, Bastila, Meetra, Canderous, Darth Xedrix, Vella, and Sechel?

Would Milla Jovovich make a good Darth Nyriss? I imagine her to have a non-U.S. accent, and I think a Russian or Ukrainian accent would fit her character well.

2019.10.01 23:02 autotldr 'Resident Evil' Stuntwoman Sues Studio Over Denied Coverage For Misfired Stunt That Cost Her An Arm

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 75%. (I'm a bot)
A Hollywood stunt double who lost her arm while filming one of the "Resident Evil" movies said she thought the production company would take care of her, but now she's suing the producers of the film, hoping to make her nightmare the last for stunt workers.
Olivia Jackson sued the producers of "Resident Evil: The Last Chapter" last week, claiming they left her on her own as she racked up medical bills after the career-ending accident.
Jackson was performing as a stunt double for Milla Jovovich on "Resident Evil: The Last Chapter" when she was injured in a motorcycle crash that resulted in her arm being amputated after being placed in a medically induced coma.
The "Haphazardly planned stunt went terribly wrong," the lawsuit said, and Jackson collided with the camera at full speed.
Jackson claims the producers "Abandoned" her and took out an insurance policy that only covered $33,000 of her medical expenses.
Thankfully, members of the stunt actors community and movie lovers from around the world gathered to raise funds to help her have the surgeries she required, Jackson said.

2019.05.30 22:14 Morozow Good movie about the war

An article by an anti-Soviet blogger about Soviet war films.

Often hear bitter sobs about national cinema. Like here in the Soviet period, the films were wow as good. But did not and the Soviet Union and a good movie did not. Well that is generally the full zero. It's nothing, of course. Because in Soviet times there was a lot of slag ("Yurkin dawn" to help you) and in the post-Soviet period, a lot of very high quality tapes were removed. Ah here is simply right off the bat call:
"Brother" and "Brother-2" – excellent strong fighters, and even touching the strings of the sensitive Russian soul. "Come to see me" – if this film 5 years under the New year showed, about the "Irony of fate" no one would remember. And the comparison is strongly in favor of "Come to see me" – the hero of Yankovsky is a real man, successful, strong-willed, nobody puts him drunk anywhere, he does not beat off a woman from anyone. Very good movie (as they say "Soviet" – light) . "Blind man's buff" is the exact opposite. But it's just a superfilm. "Eat served" is a great sitcom. From the Soviet films comes to mind is the comparison only with "You is Taimyr". "Poisons, or the world history of poisoning", in which, incidentally, recently tragically deceased Panin so powerfully played Cesare Borgia. And Alexander Bashirov is simply magnificent. Kasatkina in an unusual role for himself very disgusting. Very good film. "Piter-FM", "Walk" – movies are made of course "under Putin", but that they do not become worse. "Portraying the victim" – the film is strange, to put it mildly, but very strong. "New year's tariff" is also quite a nice new year's youth Comedy. "Freaks" is a great children's film. True, Milla Jovovich and Ivan Urgant there do not sew the sleeve, but overall very gut. Khabensky, by the way, such roles go, but not different admirals there. Well, certainly if he remembered Khabensky, how not to recall the wonderful black Comedy "the Mechanical Suite". Shine. And Makovetsky there as the investigator-the loser – just five points. Well, there are different "what men talk About", "peculiarities of national fishing", etc. Well or bad some "dreaming of Space"?
It is, without thinking. I don't want to say that this is just the masterpieces. I want to say that these are very good films, which are no worse than very good films of the Soviet period. Of course it's a different movie. Heroes there sometimes just disgusting. But art reflects reality, even if it is refracted through the perception of the Creator. Are there many bad movies now? Many. So there were many of them in Soviet times. Just now all that is shot, falls to the viewer, and in the Soviet Union if the movie was bad (or didn't conform to the ideology), he fell not to the viewer and on the shelf. So that films like "Children don Quixote" now of course emerge not can. Because don Quixotes have disappeared somewhere – Soviet patriots can be honest and correct only when they are ordered by their native party, and if there is no order, the Soviet patriots sigh for good, but they themselves will give a hundred points forward to the last damned plunderer of socialist property. A good movie for the post-Soviet period was filmed a lot. Just aberration Soviet patriot somehow forbids him to watch a good movie, but requires to watch only any infamy or bad DIY.
But in the network I've found in the manifestation of a certain lady-Director who decided to remove "a good movie about the war." The very idea to make a film on donations I will not disassemble. I am not familiar with the economic component and can not say how much money to raise, and therefore can not make assumptions – will be able to collect the amount or not. But this formulation of the question – "a good film about the war" is very symptomatic. And most often means "film, which shows good good Stalin, good soldiers and vicious fascists." Well, that is this replication of Soviet children's films "about war". Or, simply – "a good film is a film, which is not unlike those films that I loved watching as a kid".
And I thought – what is a really good "film about the war" and what conditions must be met to get exactly such a film. And that's what I ended up with.
There was one special type of films in the Soviet era – the so-called "films about the war", or rather – films about that part of the Second world war, which in Soviet historiography was called the Great Patriotic war. And here I won't argue – almost everything that is removed in the post-Soviet period on this subject, rare slag. However, this slag did not come with the end of the USSR. Already in the 80-ies good films "about war" is not removed. Maybe would have liked, but did not succeed. And now I will try to explain why. For what will analyze several films about the war "Golden age". In my opinion, these are outstanding films. So:
"Ballad of the soldier", "Hot snow", "They fought for the Motherland" and "In war as in war".
This list can be somewhat expanded. But to analyze enough of these movies. In addition, these are my favorite films about the war, so it's more pleasant for me to analyze them.
So, here are a few conditions that make a film about the war on this work of art, and not just a visual interpretation of the stupid "Patriotic" propaganda in the style of "grandfathers fought." Not going to touch the total for any film that – well, there is type clash of personalities, the apotheosis climax, dynamics, etc., etc., I'm going to talk about those moments that are attribute of a good Soviet film about the war.
Condition 1 (almost impossible today). Have to go to war
The creators and at least some of the participants of a good film about the war themselves had to go through the war. Not to be unfounded, from these movies:
"The ballad of the soldier»
Director Grigori Chukhrai, in the end of 1939 he was drafted into the red army. Began to serve in the city of Mariupol as the cadet of regimental school of a battalion of communication. During the war he fought in the airborne units. In 1943 he took part in the air force operation "Dneprovsky landing".
Scriptwriter Valentin Yezhov, was drafted into the red army in 1940 and went through the war, demobilized in 1945.
The operator, Vladimir Nikolaev, data could not be found, there is very little information about him. Everywhere it is mentioned that he graduated from GIK (1932), was the operator "Soyuzkinorynok". Since 1935 – Director of photography Studio "Mosfilm". Most likely any war, or participated as a cameraman of a military chronicle. In any case, he knew what a real war looked like.
"Hot snow»
The author of the novel, on which the film was shot, Yuri Bondarev, since August 1942, a war veteran, a second Lieutenant, graduated from Chkalov artillery school.
Film Director, Gabriel Egiazarov, war veteran,
The operator of the film Fedor Dobronravov. Details of the biography is not found. But he was born in 1921. In 1950 he graduated from the faculty of cinematography VGIK. So he entered in 1945. So it is possible he participated in the war.
Georgy Zhzhenov, who played Lieutenant General Bessonov, did not fight, but the biography was no less simple, in 1938 received 5 years of camps "for espionage" (in a campaign trip to the far East in the train met an American).
"They fought for their Homeland»
Over the first chapters of the novel, on which the film was staged, Mikhail Sholokhov began to work in 1942-1943, periodically went to the operating parts (he certainly did not fight).
The film's Director Sergei Bondarchuk, a participant in the war since 1942.
Aleksei Vanin, who played the Mayor of an ordinary Greyhound, have given themselves a year to be called to the front. Fought as part of the Stalin Siberian division, has been wounded. He was demobilized in 1949.
Yuri Nikulin, who played private Nekrasov in the red army since 1939, served as an anti-aircraft gunner, was wounded, demobilized in 1946 in the rank of Sergeant.
Innokenty Smoktunovsky, who played a surgeon. His biography is like a movie. In January 1943 he was sent to the Kiev infantry school; after graduation, in August, he was sent to the front. He participated in the battles at the Kursk bulge, in the crossing of the Dnieper, in the liberation of Kiev. For the fact that under enemy fire Ford across the Dnieper delivered combat reports to the headquarters of the 75th division, was awarded the first medal "For bravery". In December 1943, near Kiev, Smoktunovsky was captured, spent a month in the camps for prisoners of war in Zhytomyr, Shepetovka, Berdichev. January 7, 1944, escaped from captivity. In February 1944 he joined the partisan detachment. In may 1944 again in the regular army, squad leader of a company of machine gunners and participated in the battles for the liberation of Warsaw. Demobilized in October 1945.
"In war, as in war»
The author of the story, Victor Kurochkin, since June 1943, the commander of the SU-85. He fought on the 1st Ukrainian front: Kursk bulge, the liberation of left-Bank Ukraine, crossing the Dnieper, the liberation of Kiev, Lviv. He was seriously wounded on January 31, 1945 while crossing the Oder.
Valentin Zubkov, who played the commander of the regiment of self-propelled guns, after graduating in 1943, the Armavir military aviation school was sent to the army.
Mikhail Gluzsky, who played the commander of the tank regiment Colonel Dey, was drafted into the red army in 1940, a participant in the war.
It certainly have been a war and many members of the crew, most of the actors although not fought, but lived in that time remember it. They do not have to imagine what war is, what bombing, bread coupons, waiting for a letter from the front, etc. etc. That is, these people made a film about what they knew very well, and even about the best period of their life – youth, which fell on this hard time. And by itself in the mental plan of the person who passed war, strongly differs from the one who wasn't at war. The warlord has a hard-won philosophy. How, for example, everything that was at war with Smoktunovsky, was transformed into his perception of the world? And would he have been able to play hamlet had he not suffered all that he had endured in the war? This is a very different breed of people.
Well, of course the intoxication of victory. Probably hundreds of victories in the world Cup of the national team will not give such a feeling as a victory in such a war. Modern man, even in principle, can not feel this feeling and how it affects the psyche of a creative person.
Again, the post-war understanding of what happened. These mountains of corpses among the civilian population. Terrible losses. And all this from one side and the other was covered by arguments about higher matters and the happiness of people. Again, the psyche of the creative person could not remain calm to all this.
And all together it gave the ideological and psychological environment in which there was a need to present their philosophy on this world drama.
What about today? Who makes war movies and who plays them? Hedonistic youth, which even in army did not serve, the smell in the barracks that called didn't know. And here she had to play in the film about the war, and even so to play to touch the heart? So they can't do it. Under no circumstances. A few years ago, the entire Soviet Internet community was terribly excited by the film "Brest fortress". Posts about what a great movie it was without counting. Well, literally everyone felt obliged to write that they say has finally made this wonderful film about the war. It's been a few years. So? Where's that wonderful war movie of yours? About him are not subsiding controversy? Does it excite minds? I want to review it again and again? He's gone. Passed and forgotten. Because it's just as humane as any other modern war movie. In that film, just ideological background was shown differently, more consonant with foaming among Soviet patriots. That's the only thing for which this film was sung by Soviet nightingales. But time puts everything in its place. A good film about the war – this is not the film in which the German tank T-IV as many rollers as necessary. In Soviet films about the war rarely appeared authentic German tanks. Because it's not about them. And here we smoothly pass to the following condition.
Condition 2. Less war.
It does not seem that strange, but in a good film about the war the war itself should be a bit. In the sense of war as fighting.
In the "Ballad of the soldier" fighting, as such, are shown quite a bit at the beginning. Only to justify the rest. But the whole film is imbued with the theme of war. It is present in almost every frame. "War is war" most of the film, actually, about how the gunners are going to the front line, so to say everyday life, domestic relationships. And two episodes of the battle – intense drama is actually quite short. Fighting in "They fought for the Motherland" more, but they also do not dominate the film. In terms of timing, more time is given to preparing for battle, and then leaving the almost completely destroyed regiment for the don and everything that is connected with it. Most of the four movies of "fighting time" in the film "Hot snow". But if the stopwatch to trace, it appears that there are fights all the time less than half the length of the film.
But the fight itself in all the films is very strong – fully attracts attention, evoking a passionate sense of audience desire to win at any cost. To take the fight, like shot it those who went through the war, now do not know and cannot know. Now films war re-enactors. The reenactor's "war" is the "war" of a man who knows he will not die. Lazy running, lazy imitation of hand-to-hand and a lot of beautiful photos in detail exactly sewn form. This is not a war. It's a glazed cake.
Condition 3. Roads
If fighting in a good movie about the war should not be very much, it must necessarily be the subject of the road – the road to the front, the road home, the road from one position to another, but the road, as a basic symbol of war, should be required. Not accidentally perhaps one of the best, if not the most better, military song was "Oh, roads, dust Yes a.....". Or, you can remember also a very famous "Oh track, front-line, we are not afraid of any bombing...". Not a fight, and the road, that is mental preparation for battle is essential to the perception of a soldier. World war I was a positional war. In the movie about the First world probably important would be the theme of trench seat. But world war II is mobile. The soldiers were retreating and advancing. On any roads, sometimes full off-road, at any time of the year. Probably everyone remembers the documentary footage, as in the mud, swamp, soldiers dragging guns, crossing rivers, swamps, etc. How to show the hard work of a soldier in world war II? Fight? No. Road!
In the film "They fought for the Motherland" dusty road, among the blazing wheat fields. And the soldiers, many of whom are peasants, go and almost cry, seeing these blazing fields. Very strong scene. In the film "In war as in war" the road of the summer, but with every kilometer the tension increases until finally the gunners do not meet the traces of the recent battle, and padded T-34 mixed with a black "Tigers". And philosophical reflection of one of the gunners: "the same guys that were driving..." In the "Hot snow" the road is terrible – a fierce, frozen steppes, the same through which in the summer left the heroes of "They fought for the Motherland", and there is no time, and the tanks Manstein eager to release Paulus and we have to get to the place of deployment, time to bite into the frozen ground to have at least some chance to not die immediately. Well, "the Ballad of a soldier" – is, in fact, the whole film about the road, the way home from the front. A few days. Despite all the obstacles of wartime, the young soldier rushes to his mother. To see her again, maybe for the last time. If the movie didn't have so much space given to the road as such, there wouldn't be this aching ending. The soldier sees his mother, but the cursed road has eaten so much time that he does not even have an hour to be with her.
Condition 4. Human relation
It would seem an obvious thing, but for some reason the creators of modern films about the war committed do not remember that a good "film about the war" – this is not a film about the war. This is a film about human relationships that arise in these extremely cruel conditions. This is the best moment in psychological terms, when the inside of a person climbs out – the scoundrel can no longer wear a mask and sooner or later it will drop, and a simple person suddenly rises above himself and becomes a hero. Well, the eyeliner to reveal the character through relationships in everyday episodes.
And what military life? To eat ad libitum until killed, to smoke, to recall the house. In all good films about the war theme of food, Smoking and memories of the house given a lot of space. Here the gunners in the film "Hot snow" forced March go to a certain death, and yet annoyed by their chef who got lost somewhere and there is nothing. But the soldiers from "They fight for the Motherland" listen as the hero Nikulin remembers that he had forgotten how the armpits of his wife smell. Here self-walkers from "In war as in war" "finish" NZ, or drink "as a tear" moonshine, and then arrange an obstruction to the commander that that pours out the share in a garbage bucket. But in the "Ballad of the soldier" the soldier carefully carries two pieces of Mila completely unfamiliar to his family accidentally met on the crossing of the soldier. But it would seem – if given free rein to modern Soviet moralists – why is it in the film about the defense of the Motherland to show how greedily eat stew soldiers?
Condition 5. Short love
Here, too, everything seems to be clear. Any soldier thinks of a woman. In the movie "the Ballad of the soldier" – it is absolutely pure love when the soldier goes all day tete-a-tete in a warm car with a girl and does not even try to do something. And in the film "They fought for the Motherland" ordinary Lopakhin (played by Vasily Shukshin) like a cat to cream, sneaking out at night to Natalia Stepanovna (Mordjukova) to do a man's duty to earn and feed on all the surviving soldiers of the defeated regiment. In the film loading Domesek behind a curtain in the house offers love to the mistress of the house, which is "fighting" her husband. In "Hot snow" love of the commander of the battery Drozdovsky (Eremenko) to the nurse who turns out to be his wife. But everywhere love a short, and in essence nothing not ends. Under this dramatic. Private starlings with Shura did not explain, and he will die soon. Ordinary Domesek received nothing from the hostess of the hut, and he in the end dies. Lopakhin also receives nothing from the heroine Mordyukova. But the most dramatic love the commander of the Drozdovsky – medical orderly Tanya dies the night after the battle. The fleeting nature of love only emphasizes the drama of war.
Condition 6. Miracle
In a good war movie, there must be a miracle. Of course this is not some kind of fairy-tale miracle, when Ivan Tsarevich arrives and helps everyone. No, the miracle is, in principle, does not violate the physical laws of our world, but from the point of view medstatistiki an event so little real, what is perceived as a miracle.
In the film "the Ballad of the soldier" a miracle happens at the very beginning – a frightened young signalman ordinary starlings in horror shoots at the approaching German tanks from an anti-tank gun (PTR), the calculation of which is killed, and – a miracle! – it hits two tanks at once. Even his fellow passengers on the train, who at first consider him a liar, cannot believe in such a thing, until he presents them a newspaper in which this miracle is described.
In the film "They fought for the Motherland" the miracle is also associated with PTR – Lopakhin from hopeless anger shoots from the PTR in a German plane, with impunity to shoot the soldiers from the air and – what a miracle! – encourages him. This event is also not ordinary.
In the film "Hot snow" by all accounts command, even before all the gun crews were to die in an unequal battle with an Armada of German tanks. But the morning came and the General Bessonov surprised to see that by some miracle one gun survived and continues to fire at the Germans.
In the film "In war as in war" chokes another attack on the village, which hold the defense tanks SS division "Dead head", shooting T-34 in the open field because of the hut. And only one self-propelled gun of the second Lieutenant Maleshkin behind a smoke miraculously breaks to the village. And even greater miracle the Germans did not notice. And then, when it starts a new battle, despite the fact that it would seem after the first shot, the protagonist is doomed, a German shell only interrupts the caterpillars without damaging even the sloth. "Is it hit?"fun on this events mechanic Shcherbak (Viktor Pavlov).
It would seem – why include in a realistic film events that are not quite impossible, but very unlikely? And yet without these "miracles" movies would have lost. That on the verge of probable – excites much more ordinary.
Condition 7. Humor
All four films I write about are war dramas. It would seem, what here humour. However humorous episodes are found in all these films. Fun laugh travel over the story of signalman on destroyed two tanks. "What? – choking with laughter one of the soldiers – the tube has two holes, here it is from each one tank", which causes a new burst of laughter. Lopakhin performed by Vasily Shukshin – constantly joking. Evil of course sometimes, but funny. And as the hero of Ivan Lapikov tells how Julius Caesar "came, saw, inherited". The heroes of the film "In war as in war" periodically fall into comic situations. Even the case with the ring that flew out of the grenade in the tank, when it's all over, makes them laugh. Even in a dramatic episode of attack of German tanks, one of the gunners commented the question of what to do once the shells were over – "well, let's hit the bayonet – they fear it". Of course this is not such jokes, which cause explosions of laughter in the TV Studio "Ostankino". It's more of a caustic irony. But the war – what there thought young moralists who want to be harsh with the wolves – it not only consists of the battles. And people can not be without jokes, especially in such terrible situations.
Condition 8. No ideology
Well, perhaps the last important thing that is also unlikely to be implemented in any modern film about the war.
There should be no ideology in a good war movie. Well, absolutely. There should be only one simple idea – have our enemies and our must at all costs to whitewash the enemies.
That's all. No more is there "any invasion of the Soviet Motherland!", "Fascists hate communism", "Under a banner of party we will overcome the enemy" and other such dregs. And it's not a documentary reflection of reality. The fact is that in war soldiers have no ideology except "our" and "not ours". Therefore, ideological scenes, which may be true from a historical point of view, cause a sense of alienation. For example in a good movie "go To fight some old people" there is a scene of welcome to the party. And certainly this scene is quite authentic. But it looks completely foreign to the whole film as a phony. Fortunately the rest of the movie is very good, but without this scene the movie would be just great.
And here is in all four films, about which I say, no ideology there is no. It was not needed. Of course, in the film "They fought for the Motherland" there is a scene with a red flag. But there is a banner is a symbol of military honor – the regiment saved the flag and then will be disbanded. And in General, it is a symbol of "our", not communism, just as the crosses on the German tanks symbol of "bad not ours", and not a symbol of the ideology of national socialism.
A film about war is a film about how a soldier overcomes terrible dangers and highlights the best qualities of his character. The ideological packaging there is absolutely superfluous. But today, of course, the film "about the war" is an occasion to Express their views on the political conflicts of the time and to assess these conflicts. As a result, there is a deception of the viewer – he promised a film about the war, ie. a movie of a particular genre, but instead forced to watch the ideological extravagances of filmmakers on the topic: "I think that the correct way Stalin/HitleChurchill/soldiepirate/hell must be like I think it is". Plus pokleennye admiring the moon – "Oh, look authentic tank managed to create our decorators! Oh, look, what an exact form of German soldiers and Soviet smershevtsev" and all in that spirit. Is this a war movie? This is not a film about war, but again, the film for re-enactors who will analyze every frame and raise a howl friendly due to the fact that the tank similar to T-IV is a tower similar to the tower tank T-III, and in 1941 could not be T-34-85. So what? Ah shove it in ideological suspended matter the most authentic T-IV. The dregs from this turbidity can not stop.
Here, in General, the conditions that an ordinary ideological Baida about "dedyvoevali" can turn into a work of art. The first condition, which is clear, today can not be fulfilled in any way. And maybe it makes sense to take into account, wanting to make a film about the war? Well, it's not gonna be good. It will be average, if not worse. So why? What else can we say today about the war, which did not say Chukhrai, Bondarev, Bondarchuk and a number of other writers and Directors who made old films about the war? To try to show Stalin as a villain or, on the contrary, a pigeon – just for the sake of this, to try to make a film on this topic? Well, that's silly of me. In the end, but no less acute, but who have not yet found a normal reflection in film – Afghan war, the events of 1993, both Chechen wars. Maybe better new kinematografist to take on these topics while living and breathing witnesses to these events? And it is better not to shoot films about the Great Patriotic war. Perhaps the time will come when there will be a new talented Director who will be able to say something new in this topic. But not current. So do not try to jump above their capabilities. It is better to watch the best films of the Soviet period. So far, their level is not exactly in the teeth of even the best modern Directors and writers.

Movies in slots
We are huge film-lovers, always in a first line at movies premiere. Here are some of our slots made on the same base with movies.
Is a 2007 French-American-British action-thriller film directed by Xavier Gens and based on the video game series of the same name. The story revolves around Agent 47, a professional hitman, who was engineered to be an assassin by the group known as "The Organization". He becomes ensnared in a political conspiracy and finds himself pursued by both Interpol and Russian intelligence. The film stars Timothy Olyphant, Olga Kurylenko and Dougray Scott and was released on November 21, 2007 in the United States, November 30, 2007 in the United Kingdom and December 26, 2007 in France. Though critically not well-received, it was a financial success, grossing $99 million against a $24 million budget.
Planet of the Apes
Planet of the Apes is an American science fiction media franchise consisting of films, books, television series, comics, and other media about a world in which humans and intelligent apes clash for control. The franchise is based on French author Pierre Boulle's 1963 novel La Planette des singes, translated into English as Planet of the Apes or Monkey Planet. Its 1968 film adaptation, Planet of Apes, was a critical and commercial hit, initiating a series of sequels, tie-ins, and derivative works. Arthur P. Jacobs produced the first five Apes films through APJAC Productions for distributor 20th Century Fox; since his death in 1973, Fox has controlled the franchise.
Four sequels followed the original film from 1970 to 1973: Beneath the Planet of the Apes, Escape from the Planet of the Apes, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes and Battle for the Planet of the Apes . They did not approach the critical acclaim of the original, but were commercially successful, spawning two television series in 1974 and 1975. Plans for a film remake stalled in "development hell" for over ten years before Tim Burton's Planet of Apes was released in 2001. A reboot film series commenced in 2011 withRise of yhe Planet of the Apes, which was followed by Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in 2014 and War for the Planet of the Apes in 2017. The films have grossed a total of over US$2 billion worldwide, against a combined budget of $567.5 million. Along with further narratives in various media, franchise tie-ins include video games, toys and planned theme park rides.
Planet of the Apes has received particular attention among film critics for its treatment of racial issues. Cinema and cultural analysts have also explored its Cold War and animal rights themes. The series has influenced subsequent films, media and art, as well as popular culture and political discourse.
Hellboy (released as Hellboy: Call of Darkness in some markets) is a 2019 American supernatural superhero film based on theDark Horse comics character of the same name. Directed by Niell Marshall, the film stars David Harbour in the title role, alongside Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Sasha Lane, Daniel Dae Kim, and Thomas Haden Church. It is a reboot of the Hellboy film series, and the third live-action film in the franchise. The film draws inspiration from the comic books Darkness Calls, The wild Hunt, The Storm and the Fury, and Hellboy in Mexico.
The project began as a sequel to HellboyII: The Golden Army (2008), with Andrew Cosby and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola writing the script. Guillermo del Toro was not offered the full writer-director capacity he had performed in the first two films, and Ron Perlman, who portrayed Hellboy in the previous films, refused to return without del Toro's involvement. The project was turned into an R-rated reboot after Marshall was hired as the director and Harbour cast as Hellboy. Principal photography began in September 2017 in the United Kingdom and Bulgaria and ended in December 2017.
Hellboy was released on April 12, 2019, to negative reviews and was a box-office bomb, grossing $43.3 million worldwide against a $50 million budget. Critics compared it unfavorably to Del Toro’s films and criticized the story, inconsistent tone, and excessive gore, but some praised the make-up effects and Harbour and Jovovich's performances.

2019.05.17 19:31 Izzy248 Is there any hope for the Monster Hunter live action film? Plot: A group of United Nations militia fall into a portal taking them into an alternate dimension filled with giant monsters

I was already wary of the film to begin with. One reason being that video game adapted movies are historically doomed, with recent exceptions like Detective Pikachu being the glorious exception to the rule. And while is the press release photo Tony Jaa's armor set at least looked like a true adaption, the cast list still left me vary confused.
For one thing, most of the actors listed arent exactly known for releasing a stream of good films. Milla Jovovich, I have to give her some credit. She must be like the biggest video game loving actor in Hollywood because it seems like she will ONLY take roles either inspired by a video game or comic book. If its an adaption of that medium, she wants in. If it has nothing to do with it, seems like she wants no part of it. That being said most all of her movies arent really well received. The rest of the cast consists of Tony Jaa (as previously mentioned), T.I (yes, the rapper), Meagan Good, Ron Perlman, and a couple other relative unknowns.
What concerns me most, and what I just learned today, is the plot synopsis for the movie. Which takes on the typical American trope, and shows this movie will not true adaption, but an American-ized interpretation of it. The summary reads:"A United Nations military team falls into a portal to an alternate dimension, where humans fight off giant monsters. The two groups work together to defend the portal to prevent monsters from entering the portal and invading Earth."

Typically the average length of a movie is around 90 minutes, and will this kind of premise its almost guaranteed that a good chunk of the 1st Act will be meant for setting up the character making it towards that world and then Act 2 being mostly setting up them getting used to the world. No idea how they are going to explain them being able to wield those oversized weapons what with the realistic tone its trying to set lol. Given that, it seems like not only will it not be a true adaption, but we arent going to see much of Monster Hunters "world" (HAH).
What are your thoughts and opinions?
Cast is weird and unreliable as far as quality goes
Plot is about Americans falling into a portal and into the Monster Hunter world
I dont see the movie succeeding but I would love to hear what others think. Change my mind.

Edit: Im confused if this is being downvoted to oblivion because people legitimately hate the topic, and think this thread is pointless, or because they just hate the subject matter of the Monster Hunter films plot direction lol.
