Resident Evil: Retribution

‘Evil’ dead.


Action

Rod Lott
Fifth in the increasingly slick but decreasingly lucid franchise, Resident Evil: Retribution had potential to be the best entry since the 2002 original. After all, returning director Paul W.S. Anderson (The Three Musketeers) has positioned so many elements from the previous films that it seemed set up to play like a greatest-hits package. Instead, the result is baffling.

The Three Musketeers

All for one, and all that jazz.


Action

Rod Lott
All these centuries, who knew Alexandre Dumas' most famous novel needed ninjas? At least I think that's what you could call the hooded warrior who emerges from the water with weapon at the ready at the opening of The Three Musketeers, Hollywood's latest in a long line of adaptations of the 1884 classic, this ship steered with a steampunk touch by Paul W.S. Anderson, whose adventure credits include Death Race, Alien vs. Predator and Mortal Kombat.

Dirty Girl

Set (but not shot) in Oklahoma, ‘Dirty Girl’ almost makes a clean getaway.


Drama

Rod Lott
Set in Norman in 1987, yet looking more like 1981, is “Dirty Girl,” the feature debut of former Normanite Abe Sylvia — and a partly autobiographical one at that, I assume.

‘Dirty’ job

You don't want to see the film that was set in Stillwater.


CFN

Gazette staff
Opening Friday in select cities (read: likely not ours) is the dramedy “Dirty Girl,” which we only mention because it’s set in Norman, and definitely not because it looks like there’s a scene in which the leading lady might be forced to strip for some quick cash.

All for none...

The new ‘Musketeers’ gets mockbustered.

Rod & Reel

Never to let a Hollywood blockbuster go un-ripped off, The Asylum is at it again. After attempting (and probably at time succeeding) to fool DVD renters with “Transmorphers” (not “Transformers”), “Paranormal Entity” (not “Paranormal Activity”) and “Battle of Los Angeles” (not “Battle: Los Angeles”), those mockbuster folks get ready to carve themselves a piece of that swordsman pie.

With “Resident Evil” director Paul W.S. Anderson’s action-amped but period-appropriate remake of “The Three Musketeers” hitting theaters Oct. 21, The Asylum Home Entertainment responds with “3 Musketeers” on Oct. 25.

But, oh, how to tell them apart? The expensive one stars Orlando Bloom, Milla Jovovich and Oscar winner Christoph Waltz; The Asylum one stars (apologies to the word “stars”) Alan Rachins, David Chokachi and someone or something named XIN.

Here’s your official plot synopsis: “Alexandra D'Artagnan, junior NSA officer, uncovers a plot to assasinate (sic) the President of the United States and enlists the help of three infamous international spies to stop the threat.” No trailer yet, but you’ve been warned. —Rod Lott
