Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City

The Umbrella Corporation may have left town (and taken original star Milla Jovovich with them), but there’s still a horde of bloodthirsty zombies ready to welcome audiences back to Raccoon City in the seventh Resident Evil installment. Can estranged siblings Chris and Claire Redfield bring the foster father who poisoned their childhood to justice before he escapes with the infamous T-virus?  And can corporate espionage spy Albert Wesker really hack pharmaceutical secrets with only a Palm Pilot at his disposal?  Find out what’s up with a 90s throwback now.  

Ghostbusters: Afterlife {For Annual Subscribers}

Ghostbusters looked dead and buried after an all-female team failed to light up the 2016 box office. But writer/director Jason Reitman (Juno) finds an Afterlife for the franchise five years later in flyover country, picking up the story where the original 1984 horror-comedy left off.  Do Egon Spengler’s grandchildren have as much fun playing with proton packs and P.K.E. meters as grumpy old men Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Ernie Hudson?  And will the sentimentality get mushier than a pack of grilled Stay-Puft Marshmallow Men?  Donate and find out now!
