There are clones of Alice (Milla Jovovich) that are being used to find the cure to the ‘disease’. Alice is in for a bit of revenge and ending Umbrella’s terrible reign. Resident Evil: Extinction.

It was fun to watch. There was scare (I had more of a scare because my friend went with me and she likes to grab and stuff---and that was more of an anticipation thrill than the actual movie). But the coolest parts of the movie have to do with Alice. Women with strength and power are very much the hotness but also she has awesome abilities.

The crows play a part in one of my favorite scenes of the movie. They have freaky looking eyes. They peck at people and eat them. It’s massive coolness on the gore factor. There is a bunch of slicing and dicing of zombies throughout the movie. The look of paleness when the humans are converted into zombies is sweet. I like the fighting that went on in the movie with Alice and the other characters. I like the use of angles in the movie. The angles made some of the scenes scarier than if they were just shot normally.

I read that someone complained about how Umbrella Company was surrounded by a chain link fence. They stated that since they had so much money couldn’t they build a HUGE wall? Well I think it’s because they did not want to give away their location to anyone with the massive walls but the place is surrounded by zombies trying to get in so that’s a dead give-away. Ha.

I’ve decided that when I go to Las Vegas and people ask me why I decided to vacation there I’d mention it was all because of Resident Evil: Extinction. Oh yeah.

I thought Extinction was fun. The action did not boggle it down and the dramatic parts were not cheesy and uncomfortable. It was an even balanced movie and I believe it will please those who liked the first Resident Evil. The ending was so cool. It wasn’t a total tie up of the three but it was not a total end and it wasn’t something that lacked or stole from the goodness of the rest of the movie. It was a perfect ending that is exciting just the way I see the Resident Evil Franchise.

Resident Evil: Extinction is a fun movie for those that have loved or like the first two. Of course one would think if one did not like the first two they’d just bypass this one but there are those out there that are stupid enough to see it and then complain about it. I liked it and I will be getting it because I think it’s very…what’s the word…Zombie-riffic.

Thanks for the suggestions. You are right that we should have the headlines on the side bar and I will work to put that together.

Your sites however look a little like linkbait, though. Actually they look a LOT like linkbait: lots of disconnected unrelated links to merchants selling products, online offers, etc. Perhaps that is the idea, but you should probably think about working on a mission statement or just an explanation for the reason for your site. Otherwise people will think its nothing more than spam. It probably is, but there are lots of suggestions out there that you can use to make the site look a little less fly-by-night.

Just a thought. Thanks again for the suggestion!
