I don’t get it

Resident Evil:Extinction is playing in theaters near you1 right now. I mean, right now, even as I type this. joreth and I saw it a couple days ago.

It is a post-apocalyptic movie about the end of the world, which features zombies. And Milla Jovovich.

Now, think about that for a moment. It’s a movie about the end of the world, and it has zombies in it. And Milla Jovovich.

How do you make that suck? How does that happen? I don’t get it. That should be a no-brainer combination. It should not be possible to make that suck. The end of the world! With zombies! And Milla Jovovich! How in the name of God can that not be a guaranteed recipe for teh awesome? How, how, how do you take those ingredients, and end up with a movie that’s boring?
