Grist to the Milla

For most it is no news flash that critics of Hollywood think the town churns out movies that cater to the lowest, most miserable denominator. So when it emerged that plans were already drawn up for a fifth outing of Resident Evil as the fourth one hit the screens, emotions ran high. "As long as there are fan boys clamouring for more of this brainless plotless slop, airbrushed eye candy and increasingly ridiculous wire stunts... they'll get it," was one reaction. But for every angry web head, there are three excited fan boys, delighted at the prospect of Milla Jovovich (above left) kicking otherworldly butt dressed in tight clothing. But perhaps for the first time, one debater volunteered the theory that the films were spoiling the image of the computer game that originally spawned the pictures. Now that's a turnaround. At least Jovovich will be back for the fifth and suggested that perhaps ideas for the next instalment may come from suggestions on Twitter, via one of her own tweets.
