I actually enjoyed the first two movies quite a bit. However the next two just pretty much nosedived into the dirt in quite a spectacular fashion.

I don't think you remember how bad the second movie was. A quick rundown of scenes in which you should smash your face into a desk in lieu of watching:

- Jill needs to be saved by Uwe Boll's waifu Jovolich at every loving opportunity. Jill does literally nothing in this movie after her scene where she shoots zombies in the police station. She even tries to have a cool moment where she throws the matches to light an inferno, the matches go out, and Millia coolly flicks a cigarette.
.. The actress who played Jill actually played RE3 to study for the role.

-
Boll must've really liked All About The Benjamins. Everything Mike Epps has ever said is stupid. T-Virus is "crazy white-folk poo poo". "My poo poo is custom made." "I usually drive cadillacs." "GTA, motherfucker! 10 points!"

- Fistfight with Nemesis (which as mentioned, is a romantic sub-plot).

- Zombies popping up through the graves in order to be uppercutted by Alice as soon as they pass the graveyard.

But yeah, the real thing that gets me is just how anemic the cast is without Alice. Claire does get to do one slo-mo thing in Afterlife, but this is after watching about an hour of Alice do backflips down a building and toss guns into the air in slo-mo. Boll is such a patronizing rear end in a top hat, Alice even does Claire's thing with the gun from the CV intro.
Really, gently caress this movie. It's amazing it only got worse from here.

Uwe Boll had nothing to do with the Resident Evil films. You're thinking of Paul W.S. Anderson

Despite the fact that it existed only to mask load times, I miss that poo poo in newer RE games.

Was it in CV where zombies actually come through the door during a loading scene? I remember almost making GBS threads my pants at that part.

There will likely never be a HD rerelease of REmake because of the games use of prerendered backgrounds.

Why is that such a hindrance? If I remember correctly, the backgrounds are all CGI, can't they just be re-rendered at a higher resolution?

It happens in both scenarios in the same place.

Although I hate the loving door loading screens. I was playing it over at a friend's house and he pointed it out to me that I was watching those loading screens almost as much as I was playing the actual game. Then once I bought the DS version of Resident Evil 1 and the PC version of Resident Evil 3, they let you skip the loading screens, and my game time was much much quicker as a result. Skipping that stuff can take 45 minutes to an hour off of your game time.

The PS3 version doesn't have Move support, you have to aim with the stick.

Personally, I'd say this is the hierarchy of Resident Evil 4 ports, for anyone who's interested in playing it for the first time.

- Wii
- PS3
- 360
- Gamecube
- PS2

I've not played the PC version, though I've heard it's dogshit out of the box but can be fixed with mods?

Arguably there's mods to make the PC version look even better than the HD re-releases.

Doesn't a guy out there apparently have a copy of RE 1.5 that can be played from start to finish? I remember all of the interest around it flaring up again when Playstation Museum or some poo poo posted all kinds of new footage from the game and claimed some guy had let one of the administrators play it. But he was a collector so naturally he was being a dick about releasing it and asking for a poo poo load of money for it. At least that's what I remember.

gently caress that guy forever for not releasing it online.

(granted it was scrapped for a reason so it's probably a lovely game, but even if it's unfinished I've always wanted to play it because, well, just because)

Resident Evil is an interesting series for me. Out of playing all the games (except the survivor ones and Code Veronica), Resident Evil 4 and Outbreak are the only two I've finished, yet I love the series dearly. I also really enjoy the movies despite being pieces of poo poo.

It depends whether they held onto the original assets. Capcom are also lazy and put no effort into their HD ports. The reason they chose Code Veronica over other games to remake is because it is fully 3d.

The first Resident Evil movie was a pleasant surprise, mostly because we all expected crap. The second started to creep into stupid superpowers - Alice vs Nemesis at the end was retarded. The third continued the descent and the fourth one was a train wreck (why were Chris and Claire in this one anyway?).

The worst things about the Resident Evil movies are:

A) Alice is just Mary Sue overdrive and doesn't let any of the other characters do anything of value. Superpowers basically ruin the whole point of the game.

B) It was nothing to do with Resident Evil. They could have simply changed the names form the beginning and it wouldn't have made a difference.

That all been said, at least 2 and 3 were more entertaining than the RE CG Game. That was a snooze fest.

The Desperate Escape (Josh/Jill) is pretty fun, its basically all action. The mansion one, "Lost in Nightmares(?), is all suspense and a throwback to the original game.

Personally, I liked Desperate Escape more, but mostly due to the annoying finale of Lost in Nightmares.
