If you're a fan of zombie-filled action, you'll definitely be aware of the Resident Evil franchise. © Capcom © Capcom Well, in all fairness, it's not really that easy to keep track of the series as the original Japanese horror video game series created by Capcom, has been converted into a live-action movie franchise as well as television series. But the more, the merrier, right? It seems like Netflix sure knows our old, never-dying habit of always wanting more, and well, the streaming platform has delivered. © Capcom It just released the first season of the Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness CGI anime series, and here are five reasons why you should definitely give it a binge-watch. 1. A Zombie Civil War © Netflix If you've played the games, the first season of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is set somewhere between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. The series sees the return of protagonists Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield, who once again, join forces to investigate the aftermath of a civil war in Penamstan, a fictional middle eastern country, which is very similar to the Zombie-plagued Racoon City of the previous installments, is a testing ground for the zombie creating T-virus. © Netflix What's next? Well, we see special force soldiers becoming even deadlier after turning into blood-sucking, brain-eating scary zombies. 2. Zombies In The US White House © Netflix The series starts with the US White House, the one institution which is guarded by the goddamn Secret Service, infiltrated with Zombies. While the American President is kept under tight security and escorted away, we see how the Zombie-fighting heroes of the Resident Evil franchise, spread out inside the dark and eerie halls of the soul-less White House to kill the undead and get out alive. 3. The Graphics Are Freaking Insane © Netflix Say what you will after watching the series but you can't deny one thing about it. It has absolutely mind-blowing CGI animation that makes the characters and the scenes, and even the buildings like the US White House, look absolutely life-like. I'm pretty sure that if you had a closer look, you could even start counting the strands of hair a character has. (I know, weird, right? But you still can.) This might not be the best Resident Evil piece of action out there for the die-hard fans, however, it sure promises to be a 100 percent treat to the eyes. 4. Mysterious Characters © Netflix Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness brings back some old characters along with some new ones. One thing remains in common with almost all of them. They've had some history and are all battling demons from their past. Be it the civil war soldiers or Leon and Claire themselves, the events of the zombie apocalypse at Racoon City as well as the one at Penamstan, give each character a mysterious vibe, which certainly adds more meaning to the plot. 5. It's A Mini-Series With Just Four Episodes © Netflix That's right! While I'm not entirely happy with the series being so short, there are just four episodes in the first season and each episode is not more than 30-minutes long. This makes it very easy to watch, especially if one just wants to browse what the Zombie-anime genre is all about. Having said that, I'd still have wanted the series to dive more into the plot to make it more interesting, and maybe adding more episodes to the first season could have helped in making that possible. However, for now, you can be happy that it's just a sign of things to come, and I cannot wait for the next season to arrive to make the plot thicker, and for the Resident Evil series to become even more captivating!

Trump says Las Vegas massacre an 'act of pure evil'
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogUS President Donald Trump leaves after delivering a statement on the Las Vegas shooting. -AFP WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump decried the massacre of at least 58 Las Vegas concert goers as an "act of pure evil" Monday, but refrained from addressing calls for gun control. Delivering televised remarks from the White House, Trump ordered that flags be flown at half-staff until sunset Friday, offered prayers for the victims and announced he would visit Las Vegas on Wednesday. The FBI says it has so far found "no connection" between international terrorist groups and the Vegas attack. Calling for unity, Trump instead tried to console the nation - an act that has become a grim rite of passage for modern US presidents as each mass shooting rekindles the divisive national debate on gun control. "In moments of tragedy and horror, America comes together as one - and it always has," Trump said. "Our unity cannot be shattered by evil. Our bonds cannot be broken by violence. And though we feel such great anger at the senseless murder of our fellow citizens, it is our love that defines us today - and always will, forever." But in the immediate aftermath of the shooting, that unity was difficult to find. 'Right to bear arms' Police have identified the heavily armed gunman behind the Sunday night massacre in Las Vegas - the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history which left more than 500 injured - as a 64-year-old Nevada resident named Stephen Craig Paddock. Paddock apparently killed himself before a SWAT team breached his hotel room overlooking the concert venue, recovering at least eight rifles. Trump's vanquished election rival Hillary Clinton hit out at the gun manufacturers lobby - the National Rifle Association - which has backed a congressional push to make it easier to obtain a gun silencer. "The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots. Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer," tweeted Clinton, whose Democratic Party has tried in vain to introduce lasting gun control measures despite the national scourge of mass shootings. "Our grief isn't enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again." The issue of gun control is highly sensitive in the United States and Trump's own views on the issue have changed markedly over his years in public life. After the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, where 20 six and seven-year-old children and six adults were mowed down by a disturbed 20-year-old, Trump appeared to favor stricter rules. Back then, president Barack Obama - who often called Sandy Hook the worst moment of his eight-year presidency and recalls even his Secret Service detail in tears - called for the deadlock to be broken and for Congress to act. At that time Trump tweeted: "President Obama spoke for me and every American in his remarks in #Newtown Connecticut." But since then Trump - whose White House bid was eagerly endorsed by the NRA - has positioned himself as a staunch defender of the constitutional "right to keep and bear arms." US Senator Chris Murphy, who was the congressman for Sandy Hook, renewed a call for action in the wake of the Las Vegas attack. "Nowhere but America do horrific large-scale mass shootings happen with this degree of regularity," he said. "This must stop. It is positively infuriating that my colleagues in Congress are so afraid of the gun industry that they pretend there aren´t public policy responses to this epidemic."
'Resident Evil' lays zombies to rest after 15 grisly years
waqas dar posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogLike a horde of undead, "Resident Evil" has shuffled relentlessly forward over six films, taking a fleshy $1.2 billion chunk from movie-goers to become the biggest ever cinematic video game tie-in. Unlike the eviscerated victims of the franchise's bloodthirsty genetically modified flesh-eaters, however, the creators of "Resident Evil" are going out on their own terms. Director Paul W.S. Anderson has said the DVD and Blu-ray of "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter," released this week, will be the last offering from a series that has been savaged by critics but adored by its loyal devotees. When the idea for the first film, "Resident Evil," germinated from a marathon gaming session at the turn of the millennium, the world wasn't exactly crying out for another video game turned into a movie. "It was a movie that was made against the odds. It was made outside of the studio system with no American involvement," Anderson, 53, told AFP. "At our very first test screening, if we hadn't scored really very high, the movie was going to go straight to DVD and there would have been no franchise." At that stage, around a dozen game adaptations had already been tried, starting with "Super Mario Bros." in 1993. A few -- the first two "Pokemon" films, "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" and Anderson's own "Mortal Kombat" -- did very respectable business at the box office but all were panned by critics. Ground Zero Japanese developer Capcom's blood-spattered "Resident Evil" had grown into a global phenomenon however and Anderson felt it could buck the trend. The 52-year-old British writer-director cut himself off from the world to immerse himself in the game, emerging bleary-eyed two weeks later with an idea for a movie. "I felt it was way ahead of the curve. It was talking about things that people weren't paying any attention to, this idea of corporate malfeasance and the fact that your government probably wasn't looking after your best interests," he said. The movie, based loosely on the first two video games follows a special ops unit as it fights a powerful, out-of-control supercomputer and hundreds of scientists who have mutated into flesh-eating creatures after a laboratory accident. Anderson shot almost the entire movie in Berlin but was mid-air on the way to filming the final scene in Canada on September 11, 2001 when two planes slammed into the World Trade Center in New York. "I was one of the last flights out of New York to Toronto, and we ended up just closing down the shoot and doing it a month later, because it became a no-fly zone," said Anderson, who produced all six chapters, directing the first and the final three. "Originally the movie was called 'Resident Evil: Ground Zero.' We obviously had to change that." "Resident Evil" (2002) was an immediate hit, more than tripling its $33 million budget, and the trend throughout its sequels has been an upward trajectory towards the $312 million box office receipts of "The Final Chapter." The series is unusual in the world of blockbuster franchises in that it has been carried over 15 years by a single female lead, Milla Jovovich, who made her name in "The Fifth Element" (1997), briefly marrying its French director Luc Besson Respect Mutual respect blossomed into love for Anderson and Jovovich, 41. The pair married in 2009 -- between "Extinction" and "Afterlife" -- and have two daughters, the eldest of whom made her film debut in "The Final Chapter." "When I first came to Hollywood to make 'Mortal Kombat' back in the day, there was this rule that female-led action movies don't work and American studios didn't want to make them," Anderson said. Despite its brave casting, critics were not kind to the series -- Time Out's review of "Resident Evil" as a "derivative, tedious mess" wasn't an outlier -- but the first movie in particular has since grown a passionate fanbase and more generous reviews. "There are so many movies that receive critical pannings and then become classics. It's really nice to be in that bunch, to be honest," said Jeremy Bolt, the producer for most of Anderson's movies, including all six "Resident Evil" films. The home entertainment release was marked Tuesday with a special screening in Hollywood of the original "Resident Evil," arranged by superfan Kory Davis, who is better known as film fan and Twitter personality @moviedude18. "The games were really good at first and then they kind of lost their way but I feel like the movies stayed consistent," he said. Next up for Anderson is "Monster Hunter," another Capcom video game adaptation which is actually outselling "Resident Evil." "I'm staying in my wheelhouse, not making any romantic comedies in a hurry," he joked.
