Game Based Movies

This is a discussion on Game Based Movies within the Entertainment forum, part of the General Chit-Chat; the only one I liked at all was Silent Hill. I thought they kept the same feel in the movie ...

    the only one I liked at all was Silent Hill. I thought they kept the same feel in the movie as in the game. And a good/unsatisfying ending

    Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children... Yeah. It's certainly one of the better ones, but still a bit disappointing in my opinion. Not really a great story, and not enough Sephiroth! But what I find is that game based movies usually mess up the most important thing. The Tomb Raider movies had Angelina Jolie. DOA introduced me to Sarah Carter, whom I prefer over Holly Valance. And the Tekken movie had amazing fight choreography. But story? You can forget about that.

    Pretty much every game based movie sucks, what pisses me off is that change the whole stories around or the characters look totally different from the games looks and wardrobe.

    Depends on the movie, and who did them... But it's also like what I've been saying for decades now. When they make the transfer to a live action movie, do people REALLY want a complete copy of a game's story to live action? I don't. Cause then whats the purpose of watching or playing the cartoon and games if they are going to make it exactly the same?

    Now since this is games based on movies, I'll list live action.... Some of the good ones I thought were here... Super Mario Bros
    All Resident Evils
    Mortal Kombat 1, 2 was so-so
    Lara Croft movies
    Doom(i loved it)
    Hitman
    I'd say FF7 AC, but that was a sequel to the series, and it wasn't live action. Kinda hard to mess up a movie when it's animated...
    Prince of Persia
    In the name of the King
    Silent Hill
    Max Payne

    There might be a few others, but thats all I can think of...

    Some of the worst will come from Uwe Boll with the exception of In the Name of the King.... So here is the worst I've seen...

    Any Bloodrayne is god awful.
    House of the Dead(worst movie EVER)
    King of Fighers
    Street fighter
    Street fighter Legend of Chun Li
    Dead or Alive(hot girls, bad movie)
    Double Dragon

    Lastly, Wing Commander I'm on the fence with... it had it's moments, and it's flaws.

    I can't believe I forgot about Mortal Kombat. I thought ther were pretty good when they first came out. I liked Mario Bros. but that was when I was a lot younger. If I watched it now I think it would be terrible.

    The Resident Evil series lost all credibility when they gave The Nemesis a back story, a conscience and tears.

    Silent Hill is still the most steady handed adaptation but it's no classic in any sense.

    Videogame Movies have worked best when not based on a particular game but rather, inspired by them. Crank and Scott Pilgrim Vs The World are better films than any actual adaptation.

    If i could be promised greatness then i would like a Crysis movie or Devil May Cry one ( which got optioned a decade ago)
