The Resident Evil: Complete Collection is a nice enough set and while I don’t think much about any of the six movies, a couple more serviceable than others, each one benefits from the 4K transfers and come with a good selection of bonus features.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter in all likelihood will not the “final” movie of this flailing franchise and this entry just wasn’t good but not quite awful either, rather forgettable more than anything.
Resident Evil: Extinction isn’t all that good to be honest, but I do appreciate the change in scenery from the cold and dark Umbrella Corporation facilities or the decaying cityscapes, and instead taking place in the desert with Jovovich once again playing her role well enough.
Resident Evil: Apocalypse isn’t terrible and never made me angry, yet doesn’t get near the good-bad realm. However, I still like Milla Jovovich in the lead here and the addition of Sienna Guillory was nice.
Fury isn’t the best war drama around, not even in the top 5, but it’s still well made and features a great cast, with Brad Pitt delivering a fine performance (one of his best in some time), that elevates the writing while Ayer’s direction keeps the pacing just right.
Titans: The Complete Second Season is a solid step up from season one, though I am biased as a fan of Deathstroke who was the central villain, and the new Titans crew is a lot of fun, yes even the arrogant Jason Todd.
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider is a fun and entertaining action-adventure, in the cheesy kind of way that features a charismatic performance from Angelina Jolie who seemed to have been made for the part and some absurd CGI to go along with Daniel Craig’s laughably bad American accent.
Although Game of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season isn’t the strongest of this series, it’s still another solid year with great performances and some well written storylines with more maneuvers by our characters as each position themselves for power.
