    Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City

    ★★½

    I’ve always had a soft spot for the first film adaptation of Resident Evil, and quickly lost track of the sequels. This was corrected a couple of years ago wherein I watched all of them in a popcorn-fueled weekly ritual and found myself enjoying the films for what they are, without the lens of knowledge that the greater world of Resident Evil (that is: the video games) bearing down on perspective. This has also been remedied – to a degree…

    There seems to be a bit of marketing around this film that pushes it as the “uncut” version, which is usually reserved for home video releases and results in a rather dubious difference in content of the film. However, we’re talking about the Cronenberg family in this case, and the small theatrical run during this pandemic is perhaps allowing such a cut of film to grace the big screen. As I stumbled across snippet-sized details of Brandon…

    Destroy All Monsters

    After Godzilla is able to take a break with his son in the previous film, we find a sort of monster-island prison where all the old favourites are. Although I do protest Mothra's inclusion here: she's done nothing but help the people of Earth!

    It doesn't take long for some fun destruction and more alien shenanigans. There's quite a period of time before the big finale, which brought in even more monsters that I'm unfamiliar with, but it was a blast either way.

    Surprised by the amount of human-to-human violence here, but quite pleased with the end result and the effects work.

    This movie was incredible and having an opportunity to talk with my friend about this in-depth gave me an even great appreciation.

    That discussion is available on my podcast, Reel Film Chronicles:

    I was quite taken aback with how captivating this film was; it probably helps that I entered into the viewing with fairly low expectations. I had just listened to a podcast about Cronenberg’s remake of the Fly, and they talked briefly about its sequel (of which Cronenberg had no involvement). While it’s easy to agree that this sequel is miles behind, it wouldn’t be fair to dismiss it entirely. There are some incredibly fun creature effects and…

    What an incredible, beautiful and touching film. The animation, colours and style are perfectly balanced with the fantastical story that contains enough layers to not only warrant multiple viewings, but also offers something to all age groups. Don't be afraid to get emotional here as you fall headfirst into this film.

    Brilliant stuff.
