I saw this image a few days ago and it got me thinking about the new 'Resident Evil' movie currently in production in Toronto. I am so hoping they follow through from the end of 'Resident Evil - Apocalypse' and give us 100 Alices (all looking identical to Milla Jovovich) dedicated to the total destruction of the stinkin' Umbrella Corporation.
Each Alice should have a distinctive look different from everyone else. They all use different weapons depending on what they are comfortable with. Some use guns, others use knives or throwing stars or swords or hammers or chainsaws. You could get really creative with this part and show a dozen different ways to kill a zombie. Some would be expert pilots, or bomb makers or infiltration specialists. Each one taking a part of the original Alice's skill set and focusing on that part to contribute to the team.
All the 'Alices' know they are clones of the original. There is something in their DNA that that allows them to recognize who the true 'Alice' is.
Of course they would all dress differently and act differently the longer they are out of the growth tank. Each would develop different personalities depending on their experiences. Some would be shy while others super aggressive. Some would use their sex to get what they want and still others would 'worship' the first Alice (or Alice Prime as I would call her) as a god. This small group (maybe ten or so) would function as her private strike force and bodyguards. Some might even turn against the other 'Alices' all together because they are resentful of Alice Prime's status as the 'first among many'.
The costumes they wear would be influenced by their personalities and their experiences. One may wear a golden face mask after her features are damaged in an attack on one of the Umbrella Corporation's facilities. The possibilities are endless.
And I got all that from looking at ONE image.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
