Two new blockbusters, the movie “Resident Evil: Afterlife” and the video game Halo: Reach, each provide a vivid glimpse into how the cinematic and gaming mediums are keeping their distance even as they converge.

i choose resident evil over halo anyday

omi25p2629d ago

you would choose one of the worst movies in history which would lasted around 2 hours, over a highly rated game that could last for years?

dont mind him...he would choose having sex with a tranny over halo...its what fanboys do

edit: my bad...just checked RIP's comment history, and doesnt look like hes a fanboy, that comment was just in the form of one

i still stand by my statement towards fanboys in general, just retract it being towards you, RIP

I actually saw RE: Afterlife last week. PURE-UTTER-TRASH. The RE movies have been getting worse and worse since the first one.

The fight scenes were dull and there was ZERO originality in the fight/action sequences. And this is the first movie I've ever seen that overused slow motion to the point that it made me cringe.

The best part of the movie was probably Wesker and even HE doesn't get a half decent fight scene towards the end.

@HDgamer- I respect ur opinion, but no. Just no, lol. Inception was a good movie, RE: Afterlife wasn't even "okay" IMO. FYI, I thought the first Resident Evil movie was pretty decent.

@Zinc- The plot was all over the place. They never explained Wesker's origins and theres was no back story on Chris either. And WTF was with the coins popping out of the zombiefied axeman?!?! LOL

I'm sorry that you're too bias Mr Anonymous because your preferences is so jaded that you can't see beyond your own infant hands. RE Afterlife is a good movie.

SixZeroFour2629d ago

HD gamer...are you seeing things? where did i even bash RE:afterlife? i was merely commenting on his comment where he would choose RE over halo "ANYDAY"...meaning, even if halo was better, he would still choose RE, THATS where i thought he was a fanboy

but NOWHERE in my comment did i even remotely come close to saying RE is a bad movie, game or franchise

ive watched the other live action movies, and i think for video game movies, they are among the best ones, and i think RE5 has top notch graphics

me, biased? hardly...but i AM a big FAN of the halo series...however, i dont try to downplay other franchises cause of it

ThanatosDMC2629d ago (Edited 2629d ago )

The movie wasnt bad at all. Just dont associate it with the game's story. Now RE3 movie was really bad.

But one thing i didnt like about the movie was the over use of slowmo. Heck, they wasted 5-6 minutes of the movie because of the slowmo intro. They didnt need to list the cast or the producers in the beginning. They should learn from the Matrix or LOTR movies.

Movie versus a video game?
I guess n4g now really lost it

bjornbear2629d ago (Edited 2629d ago )

but thats just my opinion...I just find this insanely detached...

al I can say is: Reach must be an exceptional game

Afterlife is what i'd call "visual trash", it goes along the lines of 2012, Transformers 2 and other movies that have no substance, but look pretty, and thus keep 14 year old boys satisfied.

RE: Afterlife is one of the best movies this year

dark-hollow2629d ago (Edited 2629d ago )

You don't watch too many movies my friend
Inception FTW!!!!

Zinc2629d ago

I just saw it on Saturday and I was not overly impressed. It's was a very uninspired story. I'm not saying I didn't enjoy it at all... but, he took elements from a bunch of movies and games and combined them, which created a watered down final product. Plus... it's just not making sense anymore. What the hell is Umbrella trying to accomplish? Where are they going with this?

LordMarius2629d ago (Edited 2629d ago )

You people dont know how to enjoy a movie. And no Im not saying Afterlife has Inception quality but its a good popcorn flick I woulndt mind seeing again

So far this year
1. Inception
2. Toy Story 3
3. RE: Afterlife
4. The Other Guys
5. Ramona and Beezus
6. Salt
7. Despicable Me
8. Iron Man 2
9. Scott Pilgrim
10. Grown Ups

N4BmpS2629d ago

Personally I'd put Iron Man 2 and Scott Pilgrim over RE: Afterlife because I'm a sucker for Robert Downey as Iron Man and Scott P. was a great adaptation (and commercially under-appreciated)

KillerPwned2629d ago

Inception made me mad it made me feel like i could not just sit and enjoy a movie i had to sit there and actually think about it and the plot. But i seen most of those other movies also very good.

Sneak-Out2629d ago

looking forward to resident evil

Mista T2629d ago (Edited 2629d ago )

only an idiot fanboy would choose this movie over halo

LeonSKennedy4Life2629d ago

Haha...

I'm not a fan of Halo, but it's a quality game.

Resident Evil: Afterlife is a poor excuse for a film.
