…and that’s about all I have to say about that. I could try to hazard a guess why it appears the Umbrella Corporation has taken over several major cities through totally unsupervised zombie outbreaks when I thought the world ended a couple of movies ago, but I’m sure there’s an actual answer, and honestly I couldn’t care less. Hey, at least Ada Wong and Wesker show up, in the event that you’re a fan of the Resident Evil games who also likes to watch Resident Evil movies. I know it’s not an impossible combination, but the two things have nothing to do with each other. It’s like trying to find someone who loves strawberries but also hates music made before 1980.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
