Have you ever seen a game - film crossover?

What did GeOW have? Fun gameplay and a bad story.
As a film? bwhaha. laughable. MGS film? A stealth game with over the top, cheesy cutscenes?! They had better not go through with the Metroid film too.

What they did to Doom will disgust me forever.

Hmmm...a GoW movie would be quite gay. Literally, quite gay. A bunch of Muscle Mary's prancing about with their big guns. They could just make it into porn.

Am I the only one who didn't like gears of war? I just thought it was incredibly boring. I couldn't stand more than 1/2 an hour playing it.

A movie based on it? The only good game => movie crossover I can think of was the tomb raider movies, and they we're only slightly above average. The mario movie was fun in the stuipest sense, but not good in the least.

Halo had/has the potential for an excellent film - especially with Peter Jackson reportedly interested in directing.

No, you're not :)
Mario film sucked at the time but it seems to have gained cult status now. Sorta like He-Man and all that, it's so naff and bizarre that it makes it watchable. Sorta like Graham Norton or Airplane.
Bunch of meatheads shouting, might as well watch the Doom film again... or not.

I didn't like GeOW either.

Oh, and the Tomb Raider movies were among the better of video game based movies, but they were still pretty mediocre.

I don't like Gears also. I think Halo is absolutely stupid though too. This proves the movie industry is and has been going downhill for the last 5 or more years. Creativity is at an extreme low.

There's that guy that's so dang bad at making video game adaptions...what's his name? I was so pissed when I heard HE was doing the Castlevania movie. Thankfully it went on hold for another year waiting for snow...

Some games COULD make great video games...like the FIRST Resident Evil...that was spooky and cool...creepy house, zombies, great. Why they chose what they did...?

GeOW is great coop gameplay and a lame story/dialgoue...there are some actions that would be kind of fun in a movie...like the spotlight bit and the bat things (I started playing it with sound off due to the horrible dialogue and don't know proper names) could make interesting action scenes... but I'd be banking on horrible with the past successes...but maybe someone will pull a Spider Man /Blade and revive the genre.

And the guy who voices mario lives in a big pink house in San Fransisco.. Co-incidence ? ;) :D




And He-Man !!! "Eternia" could have just been the name of a big gay nightclub.

O, speaketh not the name of Satan, for he shalt truly bring despair to us all...or, at least, yet another horrible movie.
Director?? Nay, the Destroyer of IP is he.

I hear if you say his name five times in the mirror - he appears behind you and casts you in one of his movies.... A fate 1 million times worse than death..... :D

I wonder which are worst:

A) Video games based on movies, or
B) Movies based on video games.

Tough choice.

LOL @ Stud Mario! Thats awesome MRU :D



Anyway, it was funny for me to hear this because when my friend and I were blasting through Co-Op he said "Ya know, I bet they are gonna make this into a movie, the dumb-ass plot and excessive gore will make stoned teens cry with joy"

And sure enough....

I thought they dropped him? Or he dropped it? Or something like that.

Yah, it's not being directed by Jackson. IMDB (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0464037/)

Thanks!

That page is more confusing than anything, it states Jackson, Walsh and Microsoft have postponed the project, and on the other hand states that Neill Blomkamp is now directing it. It also states Jackson asked Guillermo Del Toro to direct and he refused.

Sounds like a fair bit of name-dropping there, anything for a bit of free publicity?

How about a video game based on a movie based on a video game? :)

I'm fairly sure that from the outset of the film Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh were not directing but producing the film, heading up the search for the rest of the team as well as a fitting script. Jackson is also supplying the full support of his firm WETA Digital, responsible for all the effects seen in the LOTR series. Last I heard the film was in limbo as a result of losing the support of Sony and another big company after the search for a script was taking too long.

Glad to hear Jackson won't be directing the Halo movie. He did great with LOTR, but I hated King Kong. The movie would have been far too long with him behind the wheel.

This movie will suck......please please let Uwe Boll direct it:rolleyes:
Mario film...cult status....more like 50cent bin status
MPrime...a movie without any dialogue just trippy movie...cool sounds like 2001 to me.

Note: Anything Silent Hill rocks!...the movie was grand...not sticking to the story but none the less.
