As a fan of Milla Jovovich, the news that the Resident Evil film franchise may get a fourth installment makes me incredibly happy.
I was a latecomer to the Resident Evil movies, catching the first one a full five years after it was released. After watching it I couldn’t believe I had missed it, and couldn’t wait to see the sequels. Milla Jovovich is a fantastic action actress (making even the dull Ultraviolet at least entertaining at times) and Alice is a compelling character.
The end of the third movie, Resident Evil: Extinction, was left wide open for a sequel, and even had the beginnings of a plotline.
The MTV Movies Blog spoke with the RE writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson who says a fourth film is likely. In an encouraging quote, Anderson says,
I love the Resident Evil franchise and we always try to make the best possible movie we can. If we could find a good Resident Evil 4 to make, then we would do it. But I wouldn’t just do it for the sake of it, that’s for sure.
As the new year begins, we tend to look back over the past year. This past year at MovieSnobs, we started a new weekly post called Movie Tunes, which features reviews of movie soundtracks. We covered some great ones last year, so we thought we’d recap them before moving on with 2008.
The first Movie Tunes was one of my favorite soundtracks ever, one of my favorite CDs ever, in fact – Underworld, the Kate Beckinsale vampire movie with the hard rock soundtrack.
For Halloween, we had a review of the deluxe edition of the soundtrack for The Nightmare Before Christmas, which includes both the original soundtrack and new cover versions of the classic songs by Marilyn Manson, Fall Out Boy, and others.
Starting with my review of the Resident Evil: Apocalypse soundtrack, Mike implemented a nifty “Listen” button like the one below.
