The Spin-off Doctors: Resident Evil – Afterlife

(Apparently the Soundcloud file doesn’t want to embed on the site today, which is a new way in which it’s fucking up for me. Why not, eh?)

Alice is better than everybody who was ever in a Resident Evil videogame. Remember that!

More undead gibberish is here, with only Good Wesker providing any sort of relief. How will your Movie Boys cope? Well, one of them sorta liked it!

Dunno how she shot a camera, but they don’t only use blanks when filming movies. For example, Brandon Lee we accidentally shot and killed on the set of The Crow when the left over bullet from a dummy cartridge became wedged in the barrel of a revolver, and in a later scene that same gun was loaded with blanks, which when combined with the stuck bullet basically added up to a live round.

Also I wanted to mention this back on pixels but I like how Jim is doing his facts now in that it’s referencing/making fun of the movie or series the movie boys are talking about. I think it’s a good fit despite the fact it isn’t as lit as those memes from way back when fam

I’ve heard things happening in a movie because they needed to happen as an asspull.

Am I the only one who noticed the “4 years later”-text that showed up between the zooming out when the lights where going out, and zooming back in and seeing the guards on the roof? So obviously the whole opening scene, though it was way too long and didn’t make much sense, happened 4 years before attack of the Alice-clones happened. So I guess they decided to show how the apocalypse started in Tokyo for some unknown reason.

Regarding “events happening because the movie needed something to happen”, I call it “Deus Ex Fuckery”

So are they doing games based off non video games? I would love to see them watch Clue, and suffer through Battleship.

Also my suggestion for ‘events happening because we need them for the plot’ is ‘Warcrafting it’.

I did stop watching the movies since the fourth one. That is when they lost me, incredible coincidence that it is the same for the games. Hope it changes with 7, though ( I mean the game).

Great podcast, but the most important thing was when Jim mentioned the 4K version of 5th Element. I lost my DVD of it and have been looking for a blueray or another copy but it is impossible to find.

Where did Jim get it? Inquiring minds need to know!

Regarding the whole, “…because the movie needed it to happen…” thing. I think it’s a modern Deus Ex Machina. In that it’s a contrived event or power that shows up to resolve the plot in some way. It’s just done in a lot of these movies on a mini but multiple scale.

Also, This episode made me laugh a lot thanks.

Hate to the one who does this and does the fact check thing. but where does Conrad get his cinemas are dying facts from. Cause 2015 was the highest grossing year for cinema in history and 2016 was a slight decline but not by much on projections 2017 q1 says it will eb similar surely there be less.

Milla destroyed the $100.000 camera because Paul Anderson told her to swing a shotgun towards the lens and she accidentally hit it

i think these movies are to blame for RE6 short comings, CAPCOM musta thought, hmm, people really like RE for its bombast, so lets give them one!

this movie has directly copied the cutscene from RE5 involving Wesker vs Chris and Sheva and repackaged it as its own finale.

*JIM’s HORN IMPRESSION
FUN FACT OF THE DAY!

did you know?

the final fight sequence involving Wesker vs the Redfield siblings has been directly lifted shot for shot from the RE5 cutscene involving Wesker vs Chris and Sheeva?

This is the last movie of this series I saw, because it was the first one (to me) where it became blatantly obvious they didn’t care about lining up the monsters with the lore. I wasn’t able to forgive Plagas and Progenitor monsters suddenly showing up with no explanation of any kind; when the world wouldn’t be able to support their origins since it, ya know, ended before they were (re)discovered.

It was just adding insult to injury when they basically stated that Wesker’s power came from the T-infused Plagas, and also he’s a cannibal now because why not.

Good job 🙂 Aside from that weird burst of racism at the start regarding 3D, I thought this episode was totally on form. Jim was focused on the movie and games and kept engaged with Conrad. Facts were implemented with relevance (and without piercing my ears) and there were almost no irrelevant personal/political rants. This is near exactly what I want from The Spin-off Doctors

I’m really happy facts are back, and even happier with the way they are delivered. Got a kick from all the quote usage.

Please keep up with quotes from correlating games, when possible. So much more fun than just shouting “fact!” or using a meme keyboard.

What Conrad’s describing around the hour mark is what I believe has been described as Raymond Chandler syndrome if the action gets quite have a man come through the door with a gun.

Probably won’t be able to listen to this until a downloadable file is available, but glad to hear one of the Movie Boys dug this. It’s so stupid, but it harnesses the series’ stupidity the best to produce a good time, in my opinion.

Soundcloud won’t let me save the file to my pc. It’s forcing me to listen to it in-browser or not at all. This is not convenient for me for personal reasons, but I digress. Could this issues be related in any way to the embedding problem? Like, for example, a setting that was mistakenly switched when uploading?

Why did I not hear about the E3 tickets weren’t worth it earlier? Blame my lack of social media.

Either way, I talked my mates out of it purely on not wanting to line up for VR tech demos, but would have been good to have a reputable source.

It’s interesting how the films have gotten to the point where you’d imagine the vast majority of viewers will be people that are invested yet every film still recaps the story to date, as if each film draws in loads of new viewers.

For all the haterade the RE movies get, I think they’re a lot of fun. And their stories aren’t crazier or even more stupid than those in the games. Seriously, people love to crap on “Neo Wesker” but conveniently choose to forget that started with RE5.
