Paul W.S. Anderson — director of films like Mortal Kombat, Event Horizon, and Resident Evil — has a discussion about the newest installment of the Resident Evil franchise, Afterlife, and how 3D will not only affect that specific film but the film industry as a whole. For all of the hate the man receives, it sounds like he has a fairly keen grasp of what 3D has to offer.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m expecting Afterlife to be more of a popcorn flick than anything, but sometimes that’s fine. I understand that the Resident Evil universe is sacred to some — myself included — but I have respect for what Paul is at least attempting to do.
I know that Paul Anderson isn’t exactly a favorite among gaming fans, but I’m a huge supporter of a few of his films (Event Horizon and the original Resident Evil). No films are perfect and Paul Anderson’s are even less so, but, still, there is something about his vision… I don’t want to sit here and defend his films via this article — people are either going to like them or they won’t — but I have strong opinions regarding his take on such fan-favorites as the Resident Evil games.
If you want would like to have a [civil] discussion and hear those opinions, send me a message. I’m always up for a good debate.
