The zombie-fighting action in the “Biohazard” / “Resident Evil” films is so cartoony that it works better as an actual cartoon. This is basically the approach taken by the movie “Biohazard: Degeneration,” an animated adventure that looks exactly like the video game. There’s plenty of fun in this flick, but my favorite shot by far was the one in which a character is seen napping (or is he dead?) at his desk, with a newspaper draped over his face.
It’s a fictitious newspaper called The Washington Sun-Times, but if you look at the top part of the front page, called the nameplate or banner, you may notice that it bears an uncanny resemblance to the same part of a certain real-life newspaper. (Click on the images to enlarge.) It’s pretty clear that somebody – or many somebodies – at Capcom or their affiliated companies reads my favorite newspaper.
Obviously they employ some very smart people.
