On the other hand I know there's some games that have been converted into movies that were done quite well.

To list off some of the biggest abominations that first come to mind, see below:

MOVIES THAT WERE CONVERTED INTO SUCKY GAMES: In no particular order
All the LotR games
Spiderman Movie #1
Harvey Birdman (because whoever did Phil Ken Sebbens voice should be banned from ever doing it again)
Just about every Terminator game (cept maybe Redemption if your playing it on the xbox)
Harry Potter (you know which ones)
Aliens Vs Predator: Requiem
Transformers
Kung Fu Hustle (the horror!)
From Dusk Till Dawn

GAMES THAT WERE CONVERTED INTO SUCKY MOVIES: In no particular order
Bloodrayne (how the HELL could you screw that up? The game had a perfect storyline!)
Monopoly (not out yet but I'm highly pesimistic)
Tomb Raider
Alone in the Dark
The Super Mario Bros (I dare someone to honestly say the live action movie did the Mario bros justice)
Street Fighter
Mortal Kombat (though with todays technology, kicking back and watching MK on DVD is now hilarious)
From Dusk Till Dawn (i forget which one came first, both sucked equally imo)


I have to agree with all of these, except Tomb Raider 1 and 2. In the later versions of the series, the games actually start following the movies. It was the only one that survive the battery of games converting into movies. BloodRayne... I have played the first game and I was highly disappointed how the movie came out... although, as a consolation people seemed to have enjoy the sex scene on the jail bars. Embarassed Sick perverts that seemingly don't get any real lovin' Razz

MENTOK the MINDTAKER wrote:Oh god, I completely forgot the terrible Game converted into a Movie that is "Resident Evil". The first one wasn't bad, I quite liked the second one... but the third one. ARGH!

And where the heck did they pluck the Alice character concept from? Telekinesis played no part in the Resident Evil mytho's what so ever... not to mention it's already nerfed everything that hasn't got the same ability. Wtf?

Good Lord! How can ANYONE stand the Resident Evil movies?! Suspect I actually liked the first one until I actually got into the freaking video games. Then I had this sudden feeling of being betrayed. Mad They tried to make it up in the second one, but all the while they kept dissing Jill Valentine by upstaging her with Alice. <_< The last one... -becomes sick- They had Claire Redfield kissing Alice's butt and WTF did they do to Wesker?! One of the greatest villains ever known to all! As for the telekinesis.... I think they rip that off of Alexia. She was known to have that ablility in the books, I think.

MENTOK the MINDTAKER wrote: The best part of that movie was when it went First Person... oh and the end credits, wait.. what? Razz

Guy #1: I got about half a clip, you?
The Rock as he lifts the BFG: .... One round.

I liked that line Razz


Even though it didn't really follow the lines of the game, it was actually a pretty cool movie and I have to concur that the first person shooter camera angles were a bonus. cheers Along with The Rock being in it. Smile

lmao! How can anyone forget the horror that was the first Final Fantasy movie! affraid It is something I would love to forget, but is now forever embedded in my mind, thank you! Shocked And just for that, I am going to post a video parody of that movie for all to see. Razz

I am so afraid of the upcoming Metal Gear solid movie. I don't know when it is coming out, but I am literally terrified. I already know they will get an actor that cannot portray Snake. Christian Bale has shown interest in the role, but I do not want him acting like Batman like he did in Terminator 4. I personally think Hugh Jackman will do well (and he can act differently besides wolverine). He has the muscles, the facial features and can do his own stunts. Still though, unless they follow the storyline right down to the Master Miller shocker and Decoy Octopus death, I will be disappointed......oh and they need the same theme "The Best is Yet to Come".

Wasn't the movie canceled because Konami requested it to be canceled?

You know, they have to make these movies profitable. Sometimes stuff has to be cut for some reason or another, and it deviates from what it is based off of. Instead of looking at it like it's the directors job to make a direct translation of the franchise into film, why don't you think of him as an artist, and of the movie as his work as his interpretation of the series. Just, like, don't be disappointed if every little detail doesn't make it in.

Yeah I see your point on that. Hell maybe they could start from the original NES games. That makes a lot of sense.

Oh and I just found out that they are making ANOTHER resident evil movie! Of course with the stupid Alice clones... wtf?
I wish they would revamp the series and start with the Mansion and the Labortory.

Yeah, Resident Evil: Afterlife. I saw the trailer. At least Wesker has red eyes. But damn, that trailer looked more like "The Matrix meets Ninja Assassin" (both being made by the same guys, mind you) than anything else!

I don't know which is more of a blasphemy the new Resident Evil Movie or the new Karate Kid movie. I'm sorry Jackie Chan isn't Mr. Miyagi. And the karate kid......I'm not even going there lol.

New Karate Kid looks off the chain. Jackie Chan would be a fucking awesome Mr. Miyagi. I'm really excited to see him in that role.
And the karate kid......I'm not even going there lol
I hope you're not implying that it's because he's black.

Don't get me wrong. It does look like a good movie, but... some things should just be left alone. Like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The original was a great movie but the remake went way off track. I just have a hard time seeing Jackie Chan as Miyagi. And I was talking about the kid's age and height. Why it gotta be about black and white dog? lol j/k

Charlie being a failure was Tim Burton's fault. That movie was just a disaster, but it really looks like they are going the right direction with the new Karate Kid. No one can ever truely replace Miyagi, but if they had to pick anyone, I think Jackie Chan's a great choice, and his star power helps ease the transition.

I'll wait until the reviews hit before I decide to see it (which I do with any movie) but so far, I've liked what I've seen.

I couldn't agree with you more! cheers But I believe Capcom's attempt in making some movies of the RE series, of their own, is their way of trying to make up for it. I freaking can't believe that they are going to release another crappy-ass Resident Evil movie, with Alice always upstaging the original characters from the series! Mad I saw the trailer for the next movie, and while the trailer wasn't bad... that is how it's always like. Making seem like it'll be a great movie, making up for the other ones, but in the end when you go paid to see it... you end up reflecting on how terrible it was in actuality. If I can, i will see about posting up the video for the Resident Evil movie trailer.

Just watched the link above, more then a few scenes screamed at me saying "Matrix scene" "Matrix scene" "Matrix scene" "Resident Evil 5 scene". The entrie Alice character concept is silly, but hopefully the movie shows to be more unique with stuff you'll only see in the next resident evil movie and won't be able to compare to "Maxtrix scenes".

Yeah, it really does bear resemblances to Matrix. Regardless though, I want to see it. For whatever reason, I kinda like the RE movies.

Heh, really didn't like part 1, but because part 2 had Jill in it & some references to Nemesis, I kinda dug it. Never saw Extinction but think I'm going to have to in preparation for part 4 ;P (That & my friend is running through RE5 Gold with me ;P )

Oh, Yea, that project that they cancelled a long ass time ago. Good. They didn;t want David Hayter as Snake, and for that I shunned them.

Could they not do an animated movie? Thus having the voice actors from the game doing the same roles in the movie.

That one problem I have with Hollywood nowadays EVERYTHING HAS TO BE LIVE ACTION! Why? Look at Up or any other animated Disney Movie and tell me a Live action version would be better.
