Resident Evil: Afterlife - An IMAX 3D Experience

My fiancé and I have had a lifelong habitude for movies. Being that we're finally together, frequenting the movie house is a given. We went to the AMC Promenade yesterday and watched Resident Evil: Afterlife since Jordan has religiously played the entire Resident Evil series on several systems. (Jordan used to work as a Game Tester so he's a gamer at heart.)

Since AMC only provided 3D viewing for the movie of our choice, we had to pay $16 a pop. The movie is reminiscent of the game, stretching from the storyline to the characters. I believe that this is the fourth installment so far. Seeing The Executioner in the film made me jump every time he appeared on the screen.


Call me crazy but coming across Bozo the Clown, Juggernaut, The Executioner and other masked characters incites such an eerie feeling. The fear lurks in because it's impossible to gauge a person's true identity behind the mask. Media has contributed to inciting fear in millions and I'm one of the suckers.

One of the many things Jordan and I have in common is coulrophobia. Yes, my lovelies! We fear clowns to the utmost level that it makes our hair stand on end.

Anything with a concealed face = I'm out!

Excuse me, I'm digressing!

Back to 3D viewing! The experience was most definitely worthwhile. Considering that we went on a Sunday, there were only twelve other people in the theater. The 3D glasses are meant to be recycled but after paying so much to see the movie, Jordan and I decided to keep them.

Toni: Amor, can we keep these?
Jordan: Heck, I paid $32! These are ours!

Resident Evil: Afterlife is a must see! Milla has done it again! Having Ali Larter and Wentworth Miller in the cast made the movie even better to watch. If you've seen the previous movies or played the game in past, you should be familiar with the virus that has been ravaging the world. Alice (Milla Jovovich) continues her precarious battle with the Umbrella Corporation as the Undead takes over Los Angeles. Alice makes it her mission to assist the survivors and guide them to safety in Arcadia. Unbeknowst to the humans, the radio frequency is a deadly trap made to lure them into a so-called "safe haven" known as Arcadia.

In a nutshell, Aside from The Executioner, the zombie dogs gave me the chills when their heads split in half! The movie has a few inconsistencies but that's expected from any film inspired by games. Watch this movie in 3D for the 3D and CGI effects are stunning!

P.S. You might wonder, "Why is it labeled Relationships and Marriage?" That's easy! Watching movies is an escape for Jordan and I since this is one of the many similarities that we share as a couple. Another bonding moment between us lovebirds.
