Not sure if this belongs in Moves & TV or here . . .
Stop making movies out of videogames.
It sounds good in theory but has it ever really worked out?
I mean, besides Tomb Raider, but let's be honest it would be shitty without the tits.
It never works because games stories are specifically made for interaction. It doesn't translate at all to movies. Why don't these people stop wasting time and money and come up with original ideas.
Because Prince of Persia was a great movie.....No it wasn't
I have not played the Assassin's Creed games, but it sounds like a lousy idea for a movie.
Hell, it doesn't even need to be an original idea. There are about five gazillion novels out there waiting to be turned into movies.
Now, that being said, if any game could work as a movie this is it.
A video game movie could work if they did it right. Using AC for an example, treat the movie as Assassins Creed 2.5. Same main character in the Animus (sp?, it's been a while) but a different character back in time. Maybe 1600's Europe.
Same thing could work with Uncharted. Make a new story within the franchise without touching the games themselves.
They already did turn Uncharted into a movie. It was called Indiana Jones and the blah blah blah............
There are four of them.
No, there are not. There are three and some silly alien shit.
Who doesn't love a quality video game adaptation like Double Dragon??? :trollol:
Billy Lee: Look who's talkin', UG Lee.
Jimmy Lee: Get it straight. YOU'RE "Ug" Lee. I'm "Home" Lee.
Billy Lee: Oh, okay...
Oscar worthy dialogue
If you make a movie off of a book most people don't know, you have to actually make it good, hope the critics agree, get the promotion for it right, hope it wins awards, etc.
Make a movie off of a best selling video game, and millions of lazy idiots go see it just because of the title.
Let me ask this. Has anyone actually made a serious video game movie?
Resident Evil comes closest.
Even RE stunk to high heaven.
It's never been done.
I enjoy Fassbender a lot though. I'll give it a watch after it's on DVD/Torrent.
The original Mortal Kombat movie wasn't half bad. Not exactly a masterpiece but I enjoyed it when I was 14 years old.
Could be great if it's done right but I won't get my hopes up.
exactly, on the other hand though the story and game play of the Half Life series plays out very much like a movie. I'd make cumsies all over if they make it.
I'm interested in the movie because I love the games. Fassbender is a great actor and I'm interested to see him as an assassin. I'm curious if he's going to be Altair, Ezio, Connor, or a new Assassin that is in the same universe. I also wonder how they're going to deal with the Animus. I'm thinking there might be too much for it to be a movie. The only idea I have for it to work would be having it in the past all the way up to the end where it has whoever waking up in the Animus saying, "I'm ready" or some other cheesy line.
I want a good god damned Mario Brothers movie.
I don't think that'll ever happen. The first one scared Nintendo off of making movies, that's why there has never been a Zelda movie, and I think that would be far more deserving. If they ever do make another Mario movie, I don't think live action is the way to go.
