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

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
