STAR LET­TER

Total Film - - Dialogue -

I★ don’t know if I’m the only one, but I am truly sick of peo­ple act­ing snob­bish when it comes to comic-book movies. Even now there are still some peo­ple who be­lieve that they’re only for kids! Are they kid­ding me? Some of the char­ac­ters are more com­plex than you get in most in­die movies. Now, ad­mit­tedly, when it comes to adap­ta­tion, some of the more in­tel­lec­tual themes are left out, but that says more about cur­rent au­di­ences than the comics. Some peo­ple should get off their high horses and give comic-book movies a chance. SA­DIA HUS­SAIN, SLOUGH

In­deed, you couldn’t show Dead­pool to chil­dren – you’d spend half the movie hav­ing to ex­plain what ‘that’ word/joke/ hand ges­ture means. And th­ese days, comic-book movies em­brace so many styles and tones; it’s the MCU’s mantra to go for a dif­fer­ent genre each time (still wait­ing for their sung-through mu­si­cal/’80s-style erotic thriller/base­ball com­e­dymeets-Christ­mas ghost story, mind). Sa­dia and ev­ery­one with a let­ter printed will re­ceive a copy of Res­i­dent Evil: The Fi­nal Chap­ter, avail­able on dig­i­tal down­load, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, 4K Ul­tra HD and DVD on 12 June via Sony Pic­tures Home En­ter­tain­ment.
