Quote from: SM on Apr 04, 2014, 12:03:51 AMAin't nobody going to be caring about this flick in another 15 years.I was watching a RE flick yesterday - Retribution I think. Fairly excrutiating. Only other RE film I've seen was the first one and that was crap too. I do like some of Paulie's stuff (AvP was rubbish, but way better than either RE flick. Gave up on 3 Musketeers about 20 minutes in), but how do these flicks make so much money?
QuoteIts a little unfair to judge a late episode of a film series in seclusion when they all form a single narative.... not that they are good.
QuoteIn answer to your question: They make money because they are cheap to make (Resident evil actually exploited tax loopholes and goverment grants to the point it would have made a profit even if it had utterly flopped) hang themselves on a recognisable name, have action packed trailers and your average cinema goer these days is a heavy TV watcher who has already had taste and their ability to pay attention to what is on the screen (and any awareness of subtext) hammered out of their tiny minds. They don't care if the film is good, they see it because it was advertised and had action scenes, and forget about it in a few months to be freshly excited by the DvD release.
Quote from: RakaiThwei on Apr 03, 2014, 10:15:25 PMYou know, I actually considered on making a thread about this but you beat me to it Scree.I honestly doubt that Fox would have anything planned for one half of the black sheep of the film franchises, but that doesn't mean that fans (no matter if they are in the minority of opinion) can't do anything to celebrate it in their own way.

Quote from: Scree on Apr 04, 2014, 08:18:39 AMYeah, I guess so. There probably won't be any news on that day regarding anything related to AVP. So I think I'm just gonna have my own little celebration then. Gonna get some beer and popcorn and pop in the DVD. Maybe I'll do a double-feature watching AVP and AVP:R. Yes, that's gonna be sweet.
Quote from: Erik Lehnsherr on Apr 04, 2014, 03:33:50 PMYeah, add to that I was six when I first saw it, loved it and then ten years later I hate it.
