Great Movie but Terrible DVD Edition,
This review is from: Resident Evil (Deluxe Edition) (DVD)
It was really funny when this DVD came out because it is titled "Resident Evil: DELUXE EDITION" and in actuality there are more special features on the original release. The only thing one could label "Deluxe" about this edition is that it has a small about a 2 minute clip from Resident Evil 2.
So, if you are looking to buy Resident Evil, then its a fun movie. But if your looking for "deluxe special features", then this is most definately the wrong place.

I wonder why you cannot get a copy of 'Resident Evil' (single disc edition),
rather than have to get 'Resident Evil, Special Edition' or 'Resident Evil, Deluxe Edition'?
The movie was soo popular that "special features, trailers, or alternative endings, music
videos, etc." are not necessary, and frankly rather insulting, as if to say, We know that
the movie was not that great so as an enticement "we" would like to give you these
"extras"... No, it seems that it is "their" way of ruining great art - by adding "extras".
Strange cover art on the 'Deluxe Edition' : A white male, a white woman, a coloured woman,
and a dog.... Also, strange cover art on the 'Special Edition' - those bizarre looking two eyes.
And that music video by some band called 'Slip Knot' where they wear animal-skin masks, as
if to say to the dvd-viewing audience, this is what dogs look like... Jesus said, Give not
holy things to dogs, nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their
feet and turn around and rent you.... Pearls are visual objects, whereas holy things are
invisible objects : Songs vs. Paintings... Dogs are they who walk after the flesh, and so
are visually-oriented. Whereas pigs have difficulty discerning between good and bad
(they will eat anything), but are after spiritual, invisible things... Scientists, and "mad
scientists" come to mind... At a Slipknot concert, the audience may be comprised of
dogs, pigs, Christians, or some combination of the three... So, adding that music video
to the 'Special Edition' -- how useful was that? Not very, in my opinion.
As another example, consider how God created the First Day : Evening preceded the
Morning... Consider the Khabbalah-inspired lyrics of that song, by KiSS : "I, wanna
rock and roll, all night, and party every day".... At a KiSS concert, as at a Slipknot,
or Sarah McClaughlan concert, you may find dogs, or pigs.... So, again, that music
video by 'Slipknot' - I think it will only cause confusion for they who are "visually-oriented".
I really wish "they" would take "their extras" and put them on a separate disk... An
exception would be 'The Terminator' (Schwarzenegger), Special Edition, where if you
look at the 'Deleted Scenes' you may discover that those scenes were soo good, as
to defy explanation as to why they were deleted in the first place.... Hopefully, "they"
will reissue 'The Terminator' with those scenes put back in the movie, as a Director's

The man was created before the woman was...
To say that darkness preceded the light, is not to
say "black" before "white", for colours are visual.
Whereas light refers to illumination, knowledge.
And darkness to ignorance. For example, in the dark,
one might confuse the colour blue with the colour black.
Also, it is important not to confuse daylight with sunlight,
for the Day was created before the sun was.
That said, your remark about the cover art is appreciated.
I had not noticed that. I had assumed that the man and the
dog were being likened to each other, since they both appear
in "green" shade, while the two females appeared to be "human".
But I can see how you took the artwork to be a commentary
on "skin colour" (what is called "racism") rather than "gender"
(what is called "sexism")... Is not a race a competition?
Skin colour is not viewed as a team uniform by everyone, but is
it wrong to look upon gender, as a team? For if you look upon
gender as a team, would not some be attempting to emulate the
best qualities of the other team?

Well, I got a copy of Resident Evil (special edition) too... I thought the audio, and
picture quality was slightly better than the Deluxe Edition, which was surprising
given that the Deluxe Edition came out 2 years AFTER the special edition did...
One would assume a newer disc would be of better quality. That said, I like the
packaging of the Deluxe Edition better. Did not care for the music video contained
with the Special Edition, but the alternate ending scene in the Deluxe Edition was
That said, the artwork on the Special Edition was pretty ugly,... those creepy eyes.
