Random Acts of Ali Larter: Getting soaked

Ali Larter in Resident Evil: Afterlife

I’m sure it’s entirely vital to the plot, but Ali Larter (and Milla Jovovich) are getting soaked to the skin in Resident Evil: Afterlife. If you’re not up to much and are in San Francisco this weekend, they and the director are going to be answering questions at WonderCon. Anyone going? Maybe Ali and Milla will be doing their pillow fight as promised.

In case you were worried she’s been slacking off on the charity work over the last couple of weeks, Ali’s also been signing Lindt Gold Bunnies made of porcelain to raise money for Autism Speaks during National Autism Awareness Month (that would be April).

How random.

Mark Kermode tries to explain the point of critics

My favourite film critic, Mark Kermode, tries here to explain what the point of film critics is. His argument is basically, “Because they can point you in the direction of some good stuff you might have missed.” Not exactly water-tight – is there any point in a film critic giving a negative review or a widely-released movie? – but interesting all the same.

What do you think though? Is there a point to critics, not just of film but of any media? Is there a point to professional critics or are amateur critics as useful? And if there is a point, what is it?
