Monday Movie Review - Resident Evil

I love movies in 3-D, even though I can't handle a lot of motion in movies. The Blair Witch made me sick - all that hopping and bobbing of the camera - but 3-D I can handle. And I love horror movies--always have. I remember watching Night of the Living Dead back in the 70's and it kept me awake all night. Ever since that day, I've loved zombie movies: 28 Days Later, Resident Evil (RE), Zombieland. I enjoyed them all and all for different reasons. That's why I wanted, and waited, to see Resident Evil-After Life in 3-D.

So, it might not be what your family thinks of as a great family film, but heck, if we were all the same, life would be boring.

So anyway, we headed off to the movies beneath gray cloudy skies that soon turned to cold Portland rain--perfect weather for a little zombie Apocalypse entertainment. So with a bucket of popcorn and an icee we sat huddled together in the dark theater to watch Alice come back to fight another day. And did she ever fight. That was my one complaint about the movie. She was a little too perfect--even for me. This was definitely not the best of the RE movies but still worth the $11.00 bucks--at matinee prices. It was $7.00 for the matinee price and $4.00 for the 3-D glasses, which we recycled afterward, in the handy receptacles outside the theater exit. I'm sure the theater will reuse the glasses - but what was I going to do with them? So we turned them back in. I'd rather be green.

Anyway, if you're a zombie movie fan like me, I think you'll like the show. If you see it, let me know.

I don't know if we'll see this in 3-d. Think we'll probably rent it someday!
