Claire And Leon To The Rescue: A Review Of Resident Evil Degeneration DVD

If you’re a fan of the Resident Evil video game series, then chances are, you have not been too happy with Resident Evil the movie series. At least, that’s the impression one would get from various online forums. Resident Evil: Degeneration, however, is something special. At first, I’m not sure if RE: Degeneration is meant to be part of the Resident Evil theatrical series, but if it is, then the timeline will put it between Resident Evil 2: Apocalypse and Resident Evil 3: Extinction. Resident Evil: Degeneration does not really have much connection from the prior movies at all with the exception of Claire Redfield and a reference to the Umbrella Corporation.

Resident Evil: Degeneration features Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy trying to stop a terrorist from unleashing an infectious virus to the population at-large. The plot thickens as they discover that the terrorist lost family in Racoon City and only care about bringing down the individuals responsible for his loss without regards to the destruction that he may cause.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars DVD Movie Review

If you’re a Star Wars fan and expecting an epic adventure just like the way Leia, Hans, and Luke captured our imagination in The New Hope, then stop and check your expectations at the door.

A noticeable aspect of the The Clone Wars movie is that it’s made for younger target audience. Ages 10 and below are likely to appreciate this movie the most.. The usual fanboys who grew up watching Star Wars and now attend conventions will grimace at this movie. And in fact, many did judging from online forums discussing this movie.

Since the Phantom Menace has been released over 10 years ago, it is clear that George Lucas intends to gain new audiences by playing to the next generation of 6-10 year olds. But instead of live action films, he’s doing it with a Clone Wars cartoon series. The kick off for the TV cartoons is the theatrical release of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Read more »

DVD Review: The Forsaken

A vampire clan roaming around in the great American desert is a marvelous concept that sets the stage for a supernatural “Wild Wild West” showdown. In the vampire movie, The Forsaken, we got something like that. But it’s more like The Hitcher with a touch of Dracula. It’s about vampires hiding out in the southwestern highways and preying on unwary travellers.

In The Forsaken, a young film editor (Kerr Smith) is driving solo from California to attend his sister’s wedding in Florida. Along the way, he picks up a scruffy hitchhiker (Brendan Fehr) who’s secretly on a mission to slay vampires. Unknown to Smith, Fehr is a survivor of a vampire attack and is on a mission to hunt for the head vampire who infected him so that he won’t turn into a bloodsucker sometime in the near future.

The two encounter a survivor (Isabella Miko) of a recent attack. They try to save her because she’s still not a full blown vampire. While doing so, she accidentally bites Smith. Now, in order to stop all three of them from becoming into vampires, they will have to find the top vampire and kill him.

Fighting vampires in the American Southwest is nothing new and has already been done by classic genre films such as John Carpenter’s Vampires and Near Dark.

As a horror film, this movie didn’t bother with suspense and went straight to action. There aren’t enough blood and gore for the slasher fans, but there are plenty of car chases and gun shots. And, of course, there are ample beautiful lasses. What would a vampire movie be if there are no gorgeous damsel in distress. Miko plays the part well enough.

The Forsakenhas a bit of edginess to it. As an action film with a low budget, the best way for the movie to catch on is through compelling characters. Johnathon Schaech certainly delivers as Kit, the head vampire that Smith and friends had to find. Kit is the cool vampire lord who wears leather biker pants instead of a cloak or a cape.

One character that’s worth mentioning is Pen played by Simon Rex (Felicity). Pen is the human caretaker of Kit’s small vampire clan. And I like the interaction between Pen and Kit where Pen is more of a trusted advisor than a pet.

Overall, The Forsaken is a movie that should be watched with little expectation. It does not add anything new to the vampire genre. But it still is a good little vampire movie to watch. I rate it 3 out of 5.

Movies and high fashion go together and there’s nothing more fashionable than a Hermes Kelly bag. These luxurious women’s accessories are the class of class.
