Has anyone else seen the trailer?

The 3D is so bad, you can tell from a 2D trailer. On youtube.

The degree of "look at me, I'm a 3D shot" showboating is so extreme, you can tell from a 2D trailer. On youtube.

I could go on. But frankly, I'll be more than happy if it tanks: die, evil headache technology! Die!

Any movie with Milla Jovovich kicking ass is a good movie even if it IS shot in that exploitative, carney hocked, con job of a greed based medium. I'd boycott movie houses showing it in 3D!! ENOUGH people do that and the glutenous vultures that currently own the the movie industry as a tax dodge will get the message we're fed up with their gimmick at the expense of story exploitation of the masses strategy!! :angry: POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!!

Before tonight the only Resident Evil movie I had seen at the theater was 'Apocalypse' (the first sequel - I felt violated afterward). I can't grasp why I'm going to see 'Afterlife'; it may be the same reason that I watch and enjoy movies like 'Friday the 13th' despite and because of their flaws. Those in-your-face 3D moments are what make people watch movies like this for. It doesn't make any bones about being a shameless gimmick.

It doesn't help that I don't buy Milla Jovovich as an ass-kicking lead nor her supporting cast of Ali Larter and Wentworth Miller as talented actors. I try to reserve judgement before seeing any film, but...

Having said about gimmicks, I've had a recent, small change of heart about 3D films. I feel that more can be achieved in the format than what's already been done, especially in a horror film. Most 3D films have used the effect to evoke awe and provide scale, but horror can create something different; atmosphere. I've seen two horror movies in 3D, 'Piranha' and 'My Bloody Valentine', and neither accomplished that, but if it were done right you could really scare the crap out of the audience without in-your-face trickery. Provided Guillermo Del Toro can pull off 'At the Mountains of Madness', we may get some real belters.
