Retronauts Live Episode 42: Resident Evil The Movie



Yes, Michelle, Resident Evil made us roll our eyes, too.

After waiting more than half a decade for a movie adaptation of this famous Capcom franchise, audiences worldwide witnessed a very loud, Matrix-y, sci-fi take on a series mostly known for loneliness and terror. But that didn't stop anyone from buying tickets; this 2002 film spawned many additional installments, each one banking enough dough to justify yet another sequel (probably aided by the tax loopholes present in dual-country productions). And while later Resident Evils would adopt characters and settings ripped straight from the games, the original movie chooses to forge its own path, only using the trappings of Capcom's creation as set dressing.

So, did this joint Paul W.S. Anderson/Marilyn Manson (huh!?) effort end up meeting our admittedly low expectations? Listen in as I chat with Marty Sliva and Jose Otero for the third installment of Retronauts Movie Month!

Download episode 41 of Retronauts Live here! And here we have the two commercials zombie movie king George A. Romero directed for the Japanese release of Resident Evil 2. These TV spots don't add up to more than a minute of footage, but they do make for an interesting look at what could have been.

As always, If you'd like us to read your letter on the show and/or feature your envelope art on our blog, write to:

SUPER SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Retronauts Movie Month will continue for one more installment, but not next week. Thanks to GDC, we will return on March 15th for the last episode in our movie series. Keep your eyes on the Retronauts blog for info on when and where you can leave your comments about our final film!
