Resident Evil’s Paul W.S. Anderson Disses Other Video Game Directors
As considerably as I hate the Resident Evil film franchise, it’s still effective and has a fifth film in the works. My major purpose for disliking the films is the simple reality that Milla Jovovich’s Alice is the main character. Get that shit out of here. I want my Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Leon S. Kennedy, and Claire Redfield to be the main characters. Well, we’re not going to get that because Paul W.S. Anderson, the man behind the Resident Evil film franchise, thinks he’s the finest man to adapt video games into movies.
“Despite what a great deal of haters on the net may say, I really like the Resident Evil games. And these movies are produced with a enormous understanding and real passion for the games.”
He talks about why these video game film directors are undesirable.
“A lot of video game films are made by directors who do not know the video games they are based on from a hole in the head. They do not do justice to the games, they do not immerse themselves in the games, they don’t understand what people liked from the games. And that is the incorrect strategy and obviously those films do not function.”
Properly maybe we’re just getting bad directors? I don’t feel you have to be a fan of one thing just before to make a great film. For illustration, Joe Johnston wasn’t a fan of the Captain America comics, but he did a great job with the film. Nicely perhaps it’s a negative instance simply because video games are on a whole various level compared to comics, but that’s what Anderson is implying.
“You can fool people the moment, you know. I was excited to see the Tomb Raider movie the 1st time it came out. I saw it, it wasn’t really excellent, I wasn’t really excited to go and see the second film. I consider with Resident Evil it is extremely telling that every single film has accomplished better than the one ahead of.”
And I wasn’t excited to watch any a lot more Resident Evil motion pictures after the first one. Okay, I caved in to view Resident Evil two simply because Jill Valentine was in it (come on, search at her).
