Crazy season is here, but I found some extra time to see Resident Evil: Apocalypse and Collateral this weekend. The first one is the pretty basic popcorn movie, but with very bad taste, I was hopping they would manage to make something enjoyable, with the regular dumb plot, but entertaining. I was so wrong, it’s all about Steven Segal like killings, flying motorcycles, bad-acting-bad-attitude chicks. What a travesty.
Collateral was pretty good though, I was expecting the basic Tom Cruise movie, and maybe it is, but it just looked different. I don’t know much about directing, but this movie seems different in a not so obvious way. Good acting and thumbs up for Jada Pinkett Smith.
