34 - Resident Evil: Retribution

Released 23/01/2017

In one corner, we have Calvin, who loves these films. In the other corner, we have Sol, who considers them to be the worst film-franchise of all time, and Allen, who watched them for the first time in order to record this episode. If you think things got heated when Calvin and Allen went head-to-head over Suicide Squad, you ain't heard nothing yet!
In anticipation(?) of Resident Evil: The FInal Chapter (not to mention the game Resident Evil VII: Biohazard), this episode covers the Resident Evil franchise starting with the eponymous 1996 video game, covering the doomed George A. Romero adaptation that never was and, then, making the usual discussion "pit-stops" at Resident Evil, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, Resident Evil: Extinction and Resident Evil: Afterlife before landing on Resident Evil: Retribution, which gets the usual Diminishing Returns sequel-pitch treatment.
