    Not to mention Paul and Milla LISTEN to what the fans want in the movies now. Just ask Milla on her twitter. I mean u asked her to put the Hunters in the movies and I think they are! I mean the FANS asked to put Leon and Ada in the movies and to bring Jill back and they are. They know that to make money you have to please the fans. They are not stupid.

    Alright. This is coming from a HUGE fan of the games and a big fan of the movies. The movies are not bad. They just are not! If theses movies were bad they wouldnt be making a fifth one! Out of all four if the movies 2 and 3 were the weakest, we can all agree on that. And just because they are including "dead characters" doesn't mean that the first movie was a lie. They could be clones or even, I dunno a flashback? Maybe this movie will shed more light on Alice's past with Rain and One. Also Carlos is coming back. And maybe Angie from Apocolypse!!! Just honestly I can't take anyone seriously who says these movies are bad yet they haven't flopped in the theaters at all. And don't use any excuses. If these were bad movies, word of mouth would a spread to NOT see them. Look at all the movies recently released like Conan. It didn't make anything at the box office but was built of to be something it obviously wasn't.

    Yes thats what i been saying for awhile, Critics' reviews dont mean chit sumtimes because this works diff ways..
    1 a movie can b the worst movie of the year but ends up making billions, not because it was a great film, but because lots of people went to see it but it doesnt always mean they liked it.
    2... A movie could b "perfect" in many ways but it wont make millions because few people went to see it.
    And then theres movies like Re which doesnt make u happy in the end but because so many people go to c it, it bombs the box office. So if u were smart, u would wait til it hits redbox or sumthing, that way the studio can fire the director and give it to sumbody else. Then just maybe we will get our money worth with a new direction and remake or reinvented film.
    Another example... alot of people didnt like avatar, or the newer star wars, but because alot of u still went out and bought the dvds or saw it in theaters, now those films made money. from u!.

    As awesome as Michelle is, This is the best they got for the new movie? Instead of bringing in new characters from the video games like the Stars Members, Bravo Team, Alpha Team, anyone from the first game, hell Bill or Rebecca from zero, they rather bring back an original character who definitely died in the first movie lol. These movies make the games look bad :( I could give a crap how much money they make, i just want a faithful movie! :(

    @pjwolsker Critics do not make a bit of difference if a movie is successful or not. Its that people that pay to see these films that does. Its been 5 movies so far and Im sorry but if people really hated the series they would have stopped this franchise a long time ago. They even have hot toys figure made with the likeness of these characters. Look at Scott Pilgram and transformers, The critics loved scott pilgram but bomb at the box office. As for transformers they threw all kinds of tomatoes at that and it made a billion dollars at the box office.

    Why? Why would you want to bring back Michelle's role? It looks like they are trying a little too hard, hoping it won't be a flop, but that's when it always turns out to be a flop! Why not bring in somebody new and let them cause some chaos?

    @dadarkknight hahaha ikr? Yea im a survival horror fan more than big monsters. Resident evil 1 2 and 3 parts or even 4 and 5, but yea 1 and 2, those big mansions, police stations, Nothing but panio music in the background, and the only thing u can hear r ur footsteps.
    Those ugly walls, rusty doors, dark hallways, dirty/bloody floors, Sum rooms had wall candle-lights other u had to use a flashlight. And then theres every corner u kinda had to walk slow cause a zombie, dog or that1 "licker" or watever its called, would pop out. And lets not 4get when sumthings about to happen, ur controler starts vibrating lol while ur trying to run away or kill watever pops out. And yea like u said those dogs, plus those birs too!.
    Man those games were classics, i wish they upgraded 1 and 2 for ps3, u know damn well it would look spot on scary, detailed, 5.1 sound, vibration, and i dunno. it would just look 1000X better than the ps1 version. the details would look like re5.
    As much as we hate or dislike alice's character in the movie, i know we would love her butt kicking moves in these games, lol they could b useful hehe. and i wanna hear jill look at her and say WHO THE FUK, ARE YOU? lol

    @jasonkat I was hoping that one day that would have actually put Alice in the game. OR at least have an exclusive dlc mission with alice in it for the ps3 since sony own the film rights and also own the rights to the character alice since she was created in the film.

    @jasonkat I love the sony systems too, the only gaming system I game on lol I like re 1@ 2 when it was strictly a survival horror games based on just zombies with a few mutated monsters thrown in here and there. After code veronica they got more into the none scary heavy action blockbuster movie mode especially with 5. I would like them to go back to the basics with the next one and make it back into a survival horror with zombie and the feeling of being alone at the edge of your seat because you don't have a clue as to what will pop out next. I still remember the moment when that dog bust through the window on re 1 scared the crap out of me as well of those creatures that came later in the game lol

    If milla wants to make more money, she could do a voice-over on her character in the game, as well as other cast members. plus have unlockable outfits for all members,
    It be alot greattterrrrr if we could b a swat team and maybe Michelle Rodriguez could reprise her role in the game as well.

    @dadarkknight hey thats not tru. the games r good, re5 was great., as well as 4. but yea 1 2 and 3 were good too in those days. I really dunno which game u dislike but i like em all from ps1 to ps3, ps2 also. i happen to b a ps lover, so i dunno how it looks or plays on wii or xbox, but on ps3 the games r great. Now since we r at it..
    i was thinking, it would b great if they made a re game that goes with the film. I noticed in re 2,3 and 4, alice is wearing sumthing you normally see in a horror shooter game such as RE., It might actually make the movie alot better if they made a game for it like ps3/xbox/wii ect. The players could b alice clare, jill, chris or leon. man that game would b baddass. and maybe just maybe people who will play the game will have more love for the film. but since theres no game, "we" the people" r comparing these films to past RE games and it doesnt tie in very well. Thats kinda why most of us bbitch about it. But if the movie had its own game, then it would b kool. i know i would grab that on ps3. :))

    I dont see why people keep complaining about the movies suck, I for one actually like the movies. Are the movies the best in the world? No but I enjoy the heck out of them. Also have any of you played the games recently, you want to talk about the movie being bad, the games are worse. The games have not been good since re 2, the characters in the games are fighting giant ogres from lord of the rings and reapers from blade 2 now lol

    i love this chick. but wtf is going on with resident evil? bringing back sum cast who died in past RE films? Unless they were planning on showing sum flashbacks on how it all went down b4 the 1st film. who knows? But yet they remove chris from the list, how lame, OoO and alice is kept? lol. shouldnt it b the other way around? :P
    Anyhow, im a RE fan so who cares watthey do w it. as long as they keep bringing them, unlike other films in which they give us 1 then 5yrs later part2, then 8yrs later part3. lol
    Im still voting for a press confress, we need a reboot. lol
