    I'm so glad you asked.

    The RE movie franchise lacks something that the games had. Good storylines and scary scenes. Sure, the game dialogue was mostly always crap but they didn't have to rely on half-naked, make-up covered cartoony girls to carry the weight of it all.

    Unfortunately, the movies are just a good example of how not to make horror films and how not to channel good ideas through bad sources. Paul WS Anderson made one good film once upon a time (Event Horizon), but Resi-Evil and it's subsequent sequels plummetted into the abyss of craptasticness from the moment some movie executives said 'go'.

    but the games, you drove the story, you get to the next room etc. films drive you. as far as game/film conversions go it is rubbish, name one that's good!!(i do like streetfighter for its whole 'tongue in cheek' attitude and MK isn't the worst supernatural kung fu movie i've seen) but they would be unlikely to please a lot of the game fans, if only because your fav character doesn't win.(sektor in MK, not even in the films) i'd only like a resi film if it did have the bad voicing like resi 1 did.......... "hi........ Jill, i'''''''m..... barry, whesker........ did it."

    Unfortunately, the movies are just a good example of how not to make horror films
    i never considered them horror, "action that shares the name" maybe?
    and how not to channel good ideas through bad sources.
    so don't make films based on games then?
    Paul WS Anderson made one good film once upon a time (Event Horizon),
    good movie its like a really good "sunshine"
    but Resi-Evil and it's subsequent sequels plummetted into the abyss of craptasticness from the moment some movie executives said 'go'.
    i think your expectations are way too high for any game based movie.

    I definitely enjoyed all 3 Resident Evil movies we've gotten so far. I can't wait to hear more about the fourth installment.

    Cool. As long as I get my clone army kicking ass, I do not mind where it is set. Through the fourth film should finish off series.

    And what wrong with half naked, make up covered cartoony girls.

    I think you expected to much from Films base on games. Through I do reckon that film people ignored games that actually had a descent story.

    Okay I am forgetting FF film which is base on a game with a story and I am probably the only one in the entire cinema that enjoyed it.

    i didn't think the FF movie was based on any of the games.
    i quite liked it but most FF fans hate it because it has so little to do with FF.

    Many elements of FF7 was in the film but it was not base directly on a story from the game or any of the other games, which is a shame because seeing some of those summons done in a film, the could look gorgeous.

    Well I consider my FF fan having completed every game except 11. And own every game apart from 11, and 7,, which I refuse to pay 60 quid for in a second hand shop a couple of years ago. It more than what I would of paid for it when it was release but it a classic and probably worth the money.

    I really enjoyed the first 2, but I did not find the third one very good, other then the twist at the end where she finds many siblings (clones) which should allow her to have an army of herself for the future.

    I am happy to hear their will be a forth, and I hope it returns to more of the type of plot and cinematography we had in the first 2 movies.

    Claire was in a resi evil movie I must have missed that

    I do enjoy the movies (Loved the games), but I wish they didn't make the hero all genetically modified superhuman, I also wish we got the actual characters from the game i.e. Claire, Chris etc playing a big part...We did get Jill in the second movie!

    I've ordered resi evil 2,3 and Degeneration on blu-ray You were getting 3 for 2 at amazon

    I think the 3rd film was lacking in zombies...

    I mean, come on! Resident evil is about zombies.

    They hardly had any in the film.

    Who can forget the horrible CGI with them at the fences?
