The bar for movies adapted from video games is pretty low. While there’s often a great well of source material to draw from in any given franchise, it is often either adapted too literally or too much is lost in translation, or in some cases, the filmmakers take a giant swing.
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is not one of these third films, but it does do one thing that many video-game movies don’t: it knows exactly what it is, and while I wouldn’t go so far as to say that it’s a good movie, that still ain’t nothin’.
The new Marvel TV series _Agent Carter_ doesn’t début for some time yet by _Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D._ starts up again soon and the première episode os going to feature a flashback to the 1940s/50s featuring Hayley Atwell as Agent Carter, Neal McDonough as Dum Dum Durgan, and Kenneth Choi as Jim Morita, all reprising their roles from _Captain America: The First Avenger_. There’s no word on McDonough or Choi joining the cast of _Agent Carter_ just yet but I kind of hope they rope as many of The Howling Commandos in as they can as well as Tommy Lee Jones as General Tommy Lee Jones and Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark as much as possible.
Admittedly, these guys have careers, but hopefully they find some time.
