He makes two of the more acceptable video game adaptations in Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil. Then goes and torpedoes any positive opinion I have of him with AvP, the best thing I can say about that movie is it isn't AvP 2

Mortal kombat
Resident Evil

Soldier
Even Horizon
Death Race
Alien vs. Predator

Pompeii
* * 1/2

Turns out, when Anderson doesn't write the script he can prove himself to be a very solid filmmaker. Though lacking the more gonzo aspects of the Resident Evil films, Anderson crams all of Gladiator AND Titanic into a tidy 95 minute package. This is the movie to watch on a double bill with 300: Rise of an Empire (which I kind of did). Makes me want to see Eva Green and Kiefer Sutherland in a movie together. In the process of chewing scenery, they'd eat each other alive. As for Kit Harington, I like him in Game of Thrones, but in a hunky charisma Deathmatch with Taylor Kitsch, he's only the lesser of two evils. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, now there's a leading man.

From the ones I've seen on the list:

Not to shabby:
Death Race (2008)
Resident Evil (2002)
Event Horizon (1997)
Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010)

Has it's moments but what was he thinking?
Resident Evil: Retribution (2012)

Burn these:
AVP: Alien vs. Predator (2004)
The Three Musketeeters (2011)

Shamefully my favorite in the series, RE: Extinction is missing from the list.

Think I have only seen 2 or 3 of these but didn't like any.  If any more, I must have forgot them.
