Aaron Paul, Sean Bean and Lena Headey lead a great voice cast - but does it help?

#2 - The Resident Evil Film Series
Join Chris as he analyzes & reviews (with FULL SPOILERS) the ENTIRE Resident Evil Film Series. From the original in 2002 to the Final Chapter in 2017 - Chris breaks down each entry and then ranks the popular(?) horror action movie franchise.
Paul W.S Anderson directs 4 of the entries, including the original, and writes the whole zombie series based on the incredibly beloved video game franchise.
Chris dissects the techno-filled original Resident Evil, braves the Apocalypse, survives Extinction, returns from Afterlife, suffers Retribution and caps off the 15-year film series with a full breakdown of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.
Is the best video game movie somewhere in this 6-part saga?
Is Milla Jovovich a badass-enough heroine to keep the series entertaining for so long?
Help Chris reveal the secrets of Umbrella, the Red Queen, Wesker and the scariest of them all - Paul W.S. Anderson!

#3 - Rampage
Join Chris & Jeff as they analyze & review, Rampage, the 2018 action/monster movie based on the video game, directed by Brad Peyton & starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.
When three different animals become infected with a dangerous pathogen, a primatologist and a geneticist team up to stop them from destroying Chicago.
It's a simple movie with simple aspirations. But does it deliver? Is it just The Rock in a Transformers movie? Are the effects cool? Are the monsters badass? Is a good adaptation? Is the video game movie curse finally broken? Can Jeffrey Dean Morgan play anything but Neegan anymore?
Most importantly, is this better than Mortal Kombat?

#4 - Pokemon: Detective Pikachu
Join Chris & Amanda as they analyze & review Pokemon: Detective Pikachu, the 2019 live-action video game movie, directed by Rob Letterman & starring Justice Smith & Ryan Reynolds as Pikachu!
In a world where people collect Pokémon to do battle, a boy comes across an intelligent talking Pikachu who seeks to be a detective.
This is our nostalgia finally come to life on the big budget level! But does it fall to the dreaded video game movie curse? Does Ryan Reynolds just not work as Pikachu? Why is he a detective anyway? Where's Ash? Is the Pokemon battling awesome? Are there even battles?
Is Psyduck the best? Does this movie bring up morally questionable situations?
Most importantly, can we FINALLY say we have a great video game movie?

#5 - Tomb Raider
Join Chris & Amanda as they analyze & review Tomb Raider, the 2018 action movie based on the video game, directed by Roar Uthaug & starring Alicia Vikander.
Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she discovers the island where her father disappeared.
This is a film reboot based on the video game reboot. But does it fall to the curse like it's predecessors? Or is this *gasp* a real movie??
Does Alicia own the role of the uber-famous Lara Croft? What's the villain situation? How's the tomb raiding? Is it violent? Does it live up to the game?
Most importantly, is it a better film than Mortal Kombat?
