9. Resident Evil This may be the first time in director Paul W.S. Andersons life that one of his films has been recognized in a best of list. Hopefully historians looking back will keep the topic in mind... On Andersons best days, he is the long lost third Wachowski brother; on his worst days, Anderson is lucky to be called a rich mans Uwe Boll. The Resident Evil series finds him somewhere in-between. Despite being adapted from the acclaimed survival horror video game series of same name, there is no real horror to be found here beyond a couple cheap scares in the original. These movies are pure action, total absurdity, and never-ending crap. For this list, it's as guilty as the guilty pleasures go. The rail thin plots and occasionally silly visuals keep people teetering on brink of eye rolling from one scene to the next. But then Milla Jovovich blasts her way onto the screen and, instead of rolling, your pop instead in reaction to what is an undoubtedly awesome display of badassery. As far as female crime fighters go, Milla ranks right up there with Sigourney Weaver and Linda Hamilton in The Pantheon of Female Action Stars. She may not be able to string two convincing lines of dialogue together consecutively (probably why she worked so well in The Fifth Element), but that hasnt stopped her from going all out in whatever crazy battle Anderson places her in. Jovovich is great a kicking, punching, and shooting. Andersons best skill happens to be making those three things look as cool as possible on screen. It boils down to little more than a basic level of pleasure, but, consider also, this is one of the few watchable films adapted from a video game. This is THE guilty pleasure franchise for millions of gamers who wait in vain for a film that will do their pastime justice.
