A FRANCHISE IS FINALLY (HOPEFULLY) BEING PUT TO REST, AND PEOPLE ARE MAINLY SCREAMING OUT "THANK GOODNESS!" THIS RESIDENT EVIL FILM SERIES HAS ANNOYED CRITICS AND MANY MOVIEGOERS, BUT THEY KEEP GETTING MONEY, SO MORE GET MADE. SINCE IT IS NOW A RAZZIE NOMINATED SERIES, WITH MILLA JOVOVICH BEING NOMINATED FOR THE LAST ONE, IT MAY GET MORE ATTENTION, OR MAYBE NOT, BUT WE SHOULD NOT IGNORE IT SO SOON.
MANY HAVE SAID THAT THIS IS NOT REALLY A MOVIE. SOME COULD ARGUE IT WOULD BE A GOOD NOMINEE FOR THE ONE TIME CATEGORY "WORST EXCUSE FOR AN ACTUAL MOVIE." THE FILM HAS BEEN DESCRIBED AS A SERIES OF JUMPS SCARES, ACTION SEQUENCES, AND EXPOSITION SCENES, OFTEN STARTING WITH MILLA GETTING PLOPPED IN THERE OUT OF NOWHERE. THE ACTION SEQUENCES THEMSELVES ARE VERY HARD TO WATCH DUE TO THE WAY THEY ARE EDITED. SPEAKING OF MILLA, HER CHARACTER IS CONSTRUCTED TO BE THIS "AWESOME ACTION HERO", BUT SHE DOES NOTHING TO TRULY EARN THE TITLE. THE FINAL PROBLEM PEOPLE HAVE HAD IS THAT IT HAS ONE FINAL TWIST THAT COULD HURT EVEN FANS OF THE MOVIE SERIES, WHO HAVE STUCK WITH IT UNTIL NOW. OH, AND THE DAUGHTER OF THE STAR AND THE WRITER/DIRECTOR IS MAKING HER SCREEN DEBUT IN THIS MOVIE.
WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK? SHOULD WE CLOSE THE BOOK ON THIS "FINAL CHAPTER?"
Worst Actor - Johnny Depp (Just imagine the cruel irony of winning for the role that original got him his first Oscar nom.)
Worst Actress - Katherine Heigl (SHE MUST WIN!)
Worst Supporting Actor - Anthony Hopkins (If he is nominated, he'll break a Razzie record. If he wins, he'll break TWO records!)
Worst Supporting Actress - Kim Basinger (Basically in this movie because 9 1/2 Weeks, her first Razzie nomination.)
Worst Supporting Actress (nom) - Marcia Gay Harden (Jane Seymour got a nomination for the parody version of the role, so why not the real thing?)
I had made a recommendation that we should give this series of unfaithful video game adaptations a send-off. With a Tomatometer Rating higher than all of our Worst Picture nominees for 2016, that's becoming less and less of a possibility.
I just saw it. For your consideration:
-Worst Supporting Actress for Ever Anderson.
-Worst Prequel or Sequel.
Oh, and maybe:
-Worst Actress for Milla Jovovich.
-Worst Supporting Actor for Iain Glen.
