Everybody's favourite Resident Evil film director/producer/writer, Paul W.S. Anderson, wishes Capcom and the Resident Evil series a happy 15th anniversary at Tokyo Game Show 2011.
Paul w.s Anderson... everybody's favourite director/producer/writer? Gamespot... piss off! he's one of the worst, messing with our resident evil
This man is almost as bad as Uwe Boll.... ok, that was actually mean. Not even Anderson is that bad.
capcom fired this guy. He bases the story around his wife and every other real RE storyline as a side treat. Get the Silent Hill Director, now that was so weird stuff.
This was the "secret guest"? After 20 minutes or so of searching though Google, I say it wasn't worth the time to uncover the identity of said guest. It should have remained a secret.
Dear Paul W.S. Anderson - You suck - Your Resident Evil movies really suck - You aren't doing your wife Milla any favors by casting her in all your crappy movies. - Eat excrement and die.
As a big RE game fan here were my impressions of the movies: 1.) Nice new char, she was a baddie fine twist, Licker evolves when kills fine5/5. 2.) Good jill valentine actor, Nemesis!!!, end of movie he becomes a good guy stupid his name and legendary visage become pointless...3/5 3.) Zombies rule the world... yeah right, superpowers...wtf, Birkin only transformes in the end and he's aware of himself...1/5 4.) Clones,Ninjas..., Alice loses powers(yes), Wesker(yes), copying game? scenes(no) 1.5/5
I loved resident evil growing up. The dark realistic and mortal feelings of the first few games were great. It started to get a little ridiculous when the main character did unnecessary backflips just to jump out windows and stuff like in 4 and 5 but whatever, its tolerable I guess. The movies were the first things to actually start to kill it for me when I found out that apparently every single character is a blackbelt in everything, the nemesis is also a blackbelt with a conscience, and Anderson's wife doesn't need a gun because she can kill everything with her mind. Good job Paul, you really did your homework...tool
Are you actually that out of touch? EVERYONE, EVERY ONE, HATES the Resident Evil films made by this piece of $%^& excuse for a person. They are nothing but outlets for his stupid wife mila jovavich to pretend shes an actress and NO HE ISN'T THE BIGGEST FAN EVER OF THE RE GAMES. He's a disgrace. How can these people even let this douchebag in the building?
dont bother woth the movies..if u want to see something that actually make sense in the RE universe watch resident evil degeneration
worst director along uwe,these guyz simply destroyed entires games franchises.im glad kojima and casey are in the chairs of co directors - producer
Resident Evil 0 was good. Resident Evil GC remake was good. Resident Evil 2 is the best game in the series. Resident Evil 3: Nemesis was ok (the choice system kinda ruined it for me but Nemesis chasing you the entire time was great). Resident Evil Code: Veronica X was very good (I say X because the original isnt canon due to Wesker dying when Alexis killed him). Resident Evil 4 was a good game but not a Resident Evil game. RE5 was garbage. & for all the movies, only the 1st movie was good. The rest were crap. I dont like he mixed the Tvirus & las plagas as if they were 1 virus. No explaination in the movie as to how that happend. Just threw it in there to say yea i put it in there.
His movies were ok.. nothing great.. the CG film on resident evil is a lot better, he is pimping his films on the clip
Hey Paul, you wanna make a good RE movie? Step 1: Kill off Milla Jovovich Step 2: Don't make any more RE movies. Step 3: Give the series to a director who really DOES care about the games.
"Hi, I'm Paul W.S. Anderson and I want to say I'm sorry for the terrible movie adaptations of RE starring my wife"
I enjoyed RE4, one of my favorite games in fact; it was more of an intense thriller, like a horror action game. Maybe not as scary as the first three, sure, but it was still an excellent game. RE5 was just a downright disappointment IMO, and played off of all the aspects of RE4 but in a brighter, less atmospheric setting. The films, however, are just plain bad. All of them. Don't even care if the chick is hot. The films are still bad.
The most ridiculous thing in RE: Afterlife is how coins spray out of dying monsters. Some of the better aspects were the soundtrack in the 3rd movie and the Executioner depicted in Afterlife. Would've liked him to be more true to the game's story, which is much more compelling. Of course, Milla Jovovich is kick-ass (P.S. She's also Anderson's wife)
It was R.E. Director's Cut, and R.E.2 (my fave) that really hooked me. RE3: Nemesis was so so, with its one boss chasing you around the entire game. Code Veronica was okay, and my least favorite out of the first 4 games. R.E.4 and R.E.5 were good gameplay, but story-wise I thought they were naught but loose spinoffs. The movies were crap, for they had nothing to do with the games (one character made an appearance methinks, that didn't even line up personality-wise with the games). RE1 and RE2 gets "great" awards. The rest? So so. The movies? Stop making them.
I did not like Resident Evil 5 cause it was action not a horror game. the last great Resident Evil was Cod Veronica
@RE4GreatesGame The controls are good IMO,I have umbrella chronicles and the controls feel like playing them in an arcade.
"if I say Im a fan of those... uh... Resident Evil games I think theyre called... They'll believe me! Theyll never know that I know squat about the games!" Seriously.. those movies are atrocious and a disgrace to the RE name. Sorry, Paul but when the first words out of Claire's mouth on your movie are "Got any cigarettes? No? What about the other stuff?" And have the T-virus creating Los Plagas monsters, It's abundantly clear you know nothing about the characters or the games.
I like the new games as far as gameplay but the orginals were creepier. I would like if the took the creep factor of the originals and fused it with the gameplay of the new ones.
"...the biggest Resident Evil game fan in the world." After seeing the movies, I highly, highly doubt that.
@RE4GreatesGame I agree with you on RE4 being one of the best games ever. I remember it was unrivaled when it arrived. But you wrote " it created a revolutionary type of gameplay (over-the-shoulder view has been used ever since)" about RE4. Thats just not true.
Event Horizon was his scariest movie, the RE movies weren't so true to the base material and I was kinda disappointed that they went for the Zombie Apocalypse scenario I mean in any RE game the infection was contained also some of the characters felt so pointless and no Leon >:[
if Paul W.S. Anderson is really a fan of RE he wouldn't keep butchering them for the worthless movies
@RE4GreatesGame I agree with you,past Resident Evil games like 0,1,2,3 had good story and the scary factor,but 4 and 5's story don't really have any connection with each other and are not even scary.
