It didn't escape the notice of critics this past weekend that two wildly disparate films were released by directors both named Paul Anderson -- Paul Thomas Anderson's festival favorite and rave-reviewed "The Master," and Paul W.S. Anderson's "Resident Evil: Retribution," the fifth installment in the video-game-based franchise and the director's third helming contribution to the series. Notably, Armond White is Team Resident Evil, calling "The Master" a "dull, nihilistic and mean-spirited presumption of cultural history." Below, a round-up of critics weighing in on PTA and PWSA.
