I just saw the new silent hill movie and feel dirty for watching it, and stupid for giving hollywood more money for such a shitty effort, when the first adaptation was pretty dismal.

So I guess I'm wondering if there was ever any videogame adaptation that didn't blow chucks.
The only two I can think of are "postal", and "mortal combat", but given the franchises the bar wasn't very high to begin with.

It's like you're asking for fun AIDS.

I prefer the Mario Bros. Movie, it was a great feat.

why

it should be obvious to you that the vast majority of video games will not translate well into a movie unless extreme liberties are taken. the reason being is well, they're video games and movies are movies. video games aren't necessarily oriented to having a tangible story and character development, they're aimed to be fun to play

imo

the first mortal kombat movie is awesome. the first street fighter movie is also awesome because it's so overacted and it takes itself so seriously while being a movie about street fighter. dem jean claude one liners man and a fucking stealth boat. A STEALTH BOAT


hey

The only great game to movie allocations, is our life's game being incorporated into movies.
