And he's a good actor. He deserves better roles.

Give me a fucking break. Bubble head.

What he needs, is better producers. Ratner AND W.S.? Yikes.

...and wrote a Harry shitting on Fox's F4 attempts-worthy editorial on how much better a Resident Evil series could be. Not that they'd ever have a chance at this point given it's so tainted, and would probably have to use it's Japanese moniker "Biohazard" if there's ever a reboot, but still, it fucking needs one. Also, I'm not saying it's even remotely comparable to F4 in terms of quality or depth, but for fuck's sake, man....there was no need to dumb this shit down to the level that Anderson did.

Zombies are a thing of the past which is a shame, because they never really got to give the respect to the foundation of the franchise, which was undead horror.

I resent the fact that every time I come to this website I have to reminded of the shitfest that is MICHEAL CERA. Good lord, someone feed him to a split faced dog.

He ate last donut and fucked my girlfriend. Wah! Micheal Cera drank all the orange juice except the last tablespoon, thereby taunting me with but a taste of delicious OJ! WAAAAH! Shut the fuck up. 1) Thats Scott Pilgrim up there, not Micheal Cera. 2) Scott Pilgrim existed before the movie. 3) Micheal Cera hasn't done shit to you but be successful and geeky which seems to fuck with some peoples world view for some reason. 4) His success does not mean you have to click on shit featuring his name and bitch about him. 5) Those fucking animations ALWAYS outstay their welcome, and then are REUSED again later so they'll be even more annoying, are you fucking new here or something?!
Sept. 6, 2010, 10:23 p.m. CST
They've all been fucking trash of the lowest order and only seem to appeal to WWE watching metalhead dipshits. This is the only fucking franchise that I actually want to see re-booted. I'm tired of that Eurotrash whore Jovovich who can't seem to get steady work without fucking/marrying a Director, in this case Paul "What Script?" Anderson who seems intent on turning the Resident Evil series into The Matrix. Oh and the Resident Evil 5 videogame sucks fucking shit. Parts 1/2/3 were classics and part 4 was a masterpiece but number 5 is less a survival Horror game then a generic shoot'em up with some monsters. How about an RE game set in a gigantic arctic research station ala The Thing?!
Sept. 6, 2010, 10:31 p.m. CST
I honestly don't give a shit. These movies went so far off the rails from the very first, I just consider them their own little entity. They actually got progressively worse as far as storytelling, while ramping up the action. That said, this one looks like it takes things to crazy levels of CGI infused, blatantly plagiaristic insanity. I am, indeed, willing to see this, even though the last one was a bit of a turd. As a fan of the games, I've given up. As a fan of movies, I'm mildly curious. No big deal; might be fun.

Harry actually liked the second F4 movie so I wouldn't trust any sort of Harry-esque editorials.
Sept. 6, 2010, 11:05 p.m. CST
He was on the swim team and turned into a Creature From The Black Lagoon. That's where I first saw him.
Sept. 6, 2010, 11:08 p.m. CST
to zombie flicks... get ready to co-star in a alien movie weird name guy... also, his best role ever was in We Belong Together... this dude took Mariah from Eric effin Roberts!

It will never, never be anywhere as near as bad as the RE 5 - which was the biggest turd I have ever had the missfortune to play. BRING BACK THE MERCHANT.

There is no way he watched the first three RE movies and went: "I like Alice's arc..." No he saw what we did... Three shitty action films involving zombies and mutated monsters. But when a check was waved in his face he smiles and said "Fuck it!" and took the role because the dude needs to eat. These movies are horrible and this 4th movie isn't hiding how horrible it is. I saw a commercial for the movie with a friend and he asked "What the fuck is that movie even about?" I shrugged and said "Stuff in 3D". That's all it is. I along with others look forward to a reboot. Hopefully one that follows the fucking video game and doesn't just go crazy and stupid like this franchise did. Also... The Scott Pilgrim hate is getting really tired and boring. I get it, you're pissed off that your life sucks. So you turned against a movie Harry really loved... I get it. Seriously I do, the problem is that most of you don't realize what you're missing out on. I'll agree Cera is the ONLY weakness in the movie. If you hate him, I'll give you that, you avoid the movie because of him I'll agree with you. After "Year One" I never wanted to see him again, but I did. Anyway stop hating on Pilgrim though, the comic is bad ass! The movie was better than a lot of the shit that has come out recently. I will repeat myself... I get it! You want to show your a man or whatever by putting your foot down on a movie Harry loves. Problem is you picked the wrong one. Pilgrim rocks. I don't give a shit how long the animation is up you guys should give the movie a chance. I know there will be sarcastic responses to this but seriously I get not seeing it because of Cera but don't be hating on a movie you know nothing else about.

I have to say the Resident Evil series is my guilty pleasure. I love them unashamedly despite thier piss poor moments, crap scripts, wanky action and horrific idiocy.<p>
Sept. 7, 2010, 3:15 a.m. CST
What made you curious about doing the role? They paid me. The end. It's funny how the writers on this site praise the shit out of actors but at the same time tell everyone they're just normal people like us. If they are really so much like us there would be no need for some many flawed interviews. Actors gotta eat.

Ackles was going to be Leon? Damn. I'd watch him in anything.
Sept. 7, 2010, 7:44 a.m. CST
..the powers that be did'nt give this to George Romero. He directed some trailers for RE2(the game). They were awesome. Oh well...
Sept. 7, 2010, 7:54 a.m. CST
Well, honestly, Romero's script for the original was pretty bad (Chris wasn't a member of S.T.A.R.S., but Jill's boyfriend and Barry Burton became Romero's token Wise Black Man), and the first Resident Evil movie worked as a side story to the games... <BR><BR> AND THEN it all went off the rails. As a fan of the games, part two angered me. You don't win a fucking fist fight with the fucking Nemesis! In fact, a fist fight with the fucking Nemesis should take about a second as he punches through you and you die. And then when they had him do a face turn, I was so annoyed.<BR><BR> While I'll say that I liked Resident Evil 5 as an action game, it was not a good entry in the series. As a stand alone game, it was fine. As a further Resident Evil story, it was lacking a lot. And yet, if you download the Lost in Nightmares DLC, it's pretty much everything that RE5 should've been in the first place.<BR><BR>I just get annoyed when I read him saying that when he got the part, he got the movies to see what Resident Evil was about. What about the games?!? You couldn't take a few hours to watch the cut scenes on Youtube? Fuck this movie.
Sept. 7, 2010, 7:55 a.m. CST
If you're looking for a Resident Evil that took place in the Arctic, you mustn't have played Code Veronica, as the second half of the game is at an Arctic Umbrella Lab.

If she got more roles she could have been as big as Angelina Jolie. One of the few excellent female action heroes. She makes these movies as watchable as they can be. Sure they're stupid but they're my kind of stupid.

Season 1 was one of the best seasons of television I've watched that wasn't like super high quality MadMe/lost/Bb type show. I was enthralled. Wentworth made it awesome too. When they explained how kichaels brain doesn't see whole objects, but the pieces that make up the whole, and how they work together, and how each piece could be used as a part of a different plan, was one of the most interesting character traits I've seen. You could just see his brilliance behind the eyes. I gave up halfway thru s2 tho...it became so retarded so fast. I couldn't imagine what 3 & 4 were like. Though I'd like to know what happened to TBag. I'm sure he died sooner or later. Too bad Wentworth is doing this shit tho. I agree he's too talented to be associated with this.
Sept. 7, 2010, 10:28 a.m. CST
This is something that NEEDS a reboot. I had hoped three might have been the 'proper' RE flick I've been waiting for, with the old mansion in the mountains. But no.<P> It seems to me they've escalated things between each film to the stage where each film is more ridiculous than the last. This reminds me more of Underworld than of Resident Evil.
Sept. 7, 2010, 1:03 p.m. CST
Mostly because of "Super Alice" and no emphasis on survival horror. And throwing in bits of RE5 isnt gonna make up for a dying franchise that is in dire need of a reboot. What a letdown!
Sept. 7, 2010, 3:25 p.m. CST
Loved his acting in prison break. I hope he lands more roles and other directors and producers give him a shot. As for the RE movie franchise and video games, I'm a huge fan of both. Re4 is my absolute favorite. The movies have been a guilty pleasure for me and the 3rd movie was definitely the best directed and looking of the bunch. Milla really makes the campiness work ... I'm a fan! I'm really looking forward to this latest one, but a part of me wishes the movies were much closer to the game in terms of tone and quality of story. Maybe they can do a spinoff?
Sept. 7, 2010, 5:27 p.m. CST
The first one is kinda meh but has it's moments, the second is hillariously campy and over the top cheese, and the third one is actually well made. Going to see this one because they actually shot the damn thing in 3D and Albert Wesker as the villain = ass in seat. The glasses thrown at the screen shot is a direct lift from RE5. Of course, they could just take Wesker's dialogue verbatim from that game and it'd be great. "You two are really becoming quite a nuisance to me..." "Complete. Global. Saturation."
Sept. 7, 2010, 5:32 p.m. CST
Overall, I think it's a big blowout of Albert Wesker who was retconned into being the series Big Bad sometime around Code Veronica. So the uber-story of Resident Evil had been leading to a show down with Wesker, he was 90% exclusively just a cut-scene character. So you finally get a crazy-awesome super-epic Wesker fight and he meets his end. That's called closure, people. I'm just wondering if this movie will replicate the surprisingly emotionally well done scene where Chris rescues Jill from Weskers control. That had weight of the whole series behind it. So RE5 did advance the story in a way that it was basically wrapping up Wesker's plotline. Which was cool and all because as fans of the series you needed an ending. He couldn't be fuckin Dr. Wily or Bowser coming back every game.
Sept. 8, 2010, 3:36 a.m. CST
didn't he just sell a horror screenplay? he uses an alias. I really wanted to know more about that.
