The Resident Evil movies are now a billion dollar franchise

The Resident Evil films aren't great by any means, but there's something to be said about how much it appeals to its fans. I may not like any of them, but I've still watched all six of the films so far. Because despite being inane a majorit...   read

Check out Flixist's review of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

Neko Atsume is going to be the greatest video game movie ever

Video game movies have had it tough for like, ever really. I've seen some competent ones, I've seen some that bordered on good, but I still haven't seen a great adaptation. I'm not sure what's to blame for all of their failures, but perhaps...   read

The script for the development hell-ridden Uncharted movie is finished

In 2011, David O. Russell was attached to an Uncharted film that started taking shape as a Mark Wahlberg-led "family comedy." Like most video game productions (and David O. Russell films, honestly), it went on hiatus, but is now back a...   read

There probably won't be another Warcraft movie, but here's what the director wants to tackle if there was

The Warcraft film is a weird phenomenon to unpack. On paper, it was successful -- it grossed over $433 million worldwide, more than twice its $160 million budget. That's usually enough to cover marketing costs (double), but this one is an u...   read

The Assassin's Creed movie is perfectly fine if you already like Assassin's Creed

"I'm an aggressive person," Cal Lynch, Assassin's Creed's protagonist, explains maybe a half-hour into the movie. This is a bold understatement. Cal had been on death row just before Abstergo whisked him away to their science facility. Alth...   read

I still can't believe that the Assassin's Creed film attracted so much talent. I mean it's basically Macbeth 2.0, but with flashy capes instead of unwashed bloody hands. Oh, and Michael K. Williams and Jeremy Irons are just kind o...   read
