thecpt: that scene in kick ass made that movie THAT much better. Felt like I was playing COD only with action


oh yeah, id forgotten about that. it was a really amazing scene

What the hell is DOA doing on this list? I would argue that it was in fact the best video game movie of all time. It's exactly as stupid, sexy, and fun as the games it's based on. What more do you want?

Starhawk: The My Little Pony Killer: FishyFred: The My Little Pony Killer: They had the decency to leave off the Super Mario Bros movie, but to include every Resident Evil movie except the first one? List fail.

Last ten years only.

Okay, that explains SMB, but RE was 2002. The fail stands.

Are you posting from the future? Because it's 2012 where I live.

Who wins the Super Bowl this year?


Well if you want to get technical, RE was released on March 15, 2002, which is more than 10 years ago. Also, it was better than most of the other films on this list.

as a story, BloodRayne has great potential. shame the movie sucks so bad

where is the Eternal Darkness movie ?

/ actually not, let's not damage the legacy of the GOAT game.
 
2012-08-06 08:09:42 PM  
Noted that it was mentioned... Mario! Why isn't Mario on the list.

And Silent Hill and PoP were decent movies. Though I hated PoP when I first saw it. It grew on me when I decided to toss it in its own universe that had nothing to do with the games. Then it became a good movie.

And I never played a Silent Hill game. So that is why I actually enjoyed the movie.

DOOM I was the most pissed off about cause I am a HUGE DOOM fan. I saw that movie opening night and went.. What the hell?!?! Where's hell? What is this evil gene BS?!?! It ruined the entire idea of DOOM. You know, Hell literally on Mars / Earth. They were supposed to be demons. Not some mutated human.

The Resident Evil movie selection needs to be changed. Not all of the RE movies were horrible. Though they do not list the other good one, the CGI Degeneration (has nothing to do with the Live Action movies).

Why put Street Fighter Legend of Chun-Li on the list and not just place the live action Street Fighter movies like they did for Resident Evil? Both were sub-par from good.

FishyFred: Max Payne kicked ass. Yeah, it was in an over-the-top-action kind of way, but STILL.


It veered so far off course in just the first 10 minutes of the film, that it never once came close to resembling Max Payne the video game, which is farked up considering how cinematic the game and it's plot were. All they had to do was cut the "levels" down into 5-7 minute action scenes and then have all the "comic panel" parts make up the meat of the movie with dialogue. Instead of doing all of that, they decided to toss the entire plot out the window and replace it with shiatty generic action sequences and a plot that didn't make a lick of farking sense. Also, why the fark is Valkyr a nightmare drug? Who the fark would want to buy that? Valkyr in the game was just a placeholder for PCP. Terrible farking movie, not even close to the source material, and an insult to anyone that actually played the game and enjoyed it.

/and this coming from a guy that likes Mila Kunis, Mark Wahlberg, and Ludacris
//also, WHERE THE fark WAS VLADIMIR LEM!?
 
2012-08-06 08:20:18 PM  

kwame: Max Payne is the worst because they botched a perfectly simple task: convert the story, intact, to film. There's nothing to do but camerawork and stunts but no. Some asshole had to decide the film needed more than the game. Ridiculous.

I try not to hold this against people, because my own sister LOVES the Resident Evil movies but...you know what...I'm afraid you just might like shiatty movies. Because those movies are shiatty. They are shiat filled shiat, dipped in shiat, then simmered on low for 5 hours in shiat. But of course, so are all of the games excluding RE1, RE2, and RE4*, so what do I expect.

*Even this game is only "good" until about 3/4s of the way through, then it just becomes plain farking retarded

baka-san: Joshudan: Torn: Legacy should be on the list as it is a bad movie based on a bad game based on a bad movie, which is kinda unique.

Since I have never seen Torn, I will have to take your word for it...

Now, Tron, was, is, and will always be awesome...

Just reiterating what everyone else has said about Silent Hill already. It wasn't awful, it wasn't great, but it was definitely successful at being really goddamned creepy and unnerving, which is what Silent Hill is all about.

And I would like to point out that this still is the best video game movie ever:

img.movie-list.com

Also one of the best soundtracks ever, including the original music, which was perfectly molded to the movie(particularly Goro vs Art).
 
2012-08-06 09:48:56 PM  
The first SF movie and the first MK movie have special places in my heart because they obviously refused to take themselves seriously. Well, everyone but Jean Claude Van-Damme refused to take it seriously. I'm not sure he actually knew the difference.

Christopher Lambert went through MK with a shiat eating "I'm getting paid to say THIS?!?" grin on his face and Raul Julia chewed so much scenery the set collapsed I him.

But yeah, that's about it for my experience enjoying video game movies. Maybe someone should make one about PAC Man gong through rehab and confronting his ghosts.
 
2012-08-06 09:49:13 PM  
Bloodrayne was a film that seemed like nobody even bothered to try making a watchable film. But I do have to say Doom was a let down when it turns out to be some bloody idiotic gene B.S. (I was thinking wait am I watching Resident Evil?). The Doom game story, what was there of it, really had the potential for a good cheesy action film.

One film I do enjoy watching to this day is Hitman, also a film that never seems to make these lists. That was a movie you can tell they were interested in making a good film. Effort, sometimes all that is needed. Why Max Payne I thought fell way short, it seemed everyone from the director to the actors just wanted to get it over with. As for any Uwe movie, you just know people are there to pick up a paycheck and that is it.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Joshudan: Torn: Legacy should be on the list as it is a bad movie based on a bad game based on a bad movie, which is kinda unique.

Or maybe that is why it isn't on the list. I got distracted after DOA.

Oh and...no Hitman?

Man, I farking loved Trim:Legacy. Never played the game though.


so far iv seen only the movies and have to say the movies themselves is great. remember the old tron was cutting computer edge of its time!! with ok story and good acting. and tron legacy ya they changed a couple things so people can realate to it but theyv tied it in with the original could have been mutch mutch worse. hopefully any movie disney makes from now on will be dark. lion king, black couldren. at least one good character dies in those and a good character died in tron legacy so there is a glimmer of hope they will recover.

another vote for silent hill here, i still think that's one of the best video game movie adaptations. it was creepy, visually memorable, and the ending has to be one of the most depressing things i've ever witnessed. i was depressed for a week after seeing that movie and i haven't been able to build up the courage to see it again since.

dead or alive was also incredibly fun. i think they made exactly the movie they were trying to make, it was silly and light-hearted and entertaining and it had pretty girls in skimpy clothing. and eric roberts. i don't think it belongs on this list.

and the only legitimately terrible movie in the resident evil series is part 2, which is funny because part 2 is also the most faithful to the games. i've seen all the resident evil movies a dozen times, but part 2 is terrible in every way, the acting is just godawful and the plot never makes any sense at all. part 1 and part 3 are both pretty good movies i think, and part 4 is just silly, but part 2 is terrible.

I only saw it once in the theaters years ago, but I remember not quite getting the ending of Silent Hill. Were they dead the whole time or something? Maybe I'll rewatch it.

tlchwi02: knowing every detail of how the norwegians came to grief not only isn't important, its not fun. your imagination (backed by what happens to the americans when faced with the same enemy) is better than anything even an inspired script could have delivered.




Fuchs' death was more of a mystery, but Nauls at the very end was more terrifying. We saw Gary get it, but Nauls just disappears. They were originally going to kill him with the "box monster" but due to budget they never built it.

Theater of the mind is the way to go.

On the other side of the coin is Schindler's List, which was a terrible videogame (think Farmville but replace strawberries with Jews) but as a movie, one of the great romantic comedies of all time.

scottydoesntknow: RexTalionis: I just want to say that the Prince of Persia movie wasn't awful. It wasn't good, by any means, but it wasn't awful.

I've seen about half of these on the list (None of 'em Uwe Boll) and I think their biggest problem is they are completely forgettable. I saw Max Payne, could not tell you a single thing abou the movie that I remember. Saw Doom, can only remember the FPS part. Couldn't tell you a single thing about any of the RE movies beyond the first, and I know I've seen them. I even remember downloading Dead or Alive (mainly for the eye candy) and don't remember anything except it was on a sunny resort.

Saw Prince of Persia, don't remember anything except something to do with a knife...maybe...or not.


I never understood the point of a video-game-based movie anyway. The fun of a video game is PLAYING it. If you extract the story of even the most awesome video games around, they are: hero kills people, wins loot/treasure, final boss fight, game ends. There are no characters, especially if it's FPS. So about the only way to make a movie is to take the name and write a story that sort of uses the character names. And that's a concept way beyond the directors on this list.
 
2012-08-06 11:55:39 PM  
I don't care what this says about my taste in movies, but I love the Resident Evil movies. Except the second, which pretty much sucks on every level. Now I am not really saying they are good movies, but I sure enjoy the hell out of them. To me they did the right thing: they diverged from the story and path of the video games so they could do new things with not only new characters but alternate versions of characters we know.

I think it's telling that the one movie in that franchise that sucked more than the others was the one that was the most faithful to the game series.

There are movies based on video games. There are video games based on books. There are books based on movies. There are movies based on TV shows. There are TV shows based on comic strips. There are video games based on movies.

Things tend to spread to multiple forms of media.

Maybe I should rewatch it again, but I don't recall the cult in the movie being identified in any way as Christian. Now, I definitely remember being pissed off that they changed it from what it was in the games. They could have had a kick ass movie series if they just went with what had already been done in the games.

Silent Hill
I liked this film. Not awesomely great, but I liked it. The only Silent Hill game I ever played was Origins, though. (hoping they'll port the SH games to IOS and/or OS X)

Resident Evil
Haven't played any of the games. I liked the first one, hated the second one, and I'm not sure I want to see the third and so on.

DOOM
The game that got me hooked on computer games -- until I discovered Marathon. The movie had a lot of WTFs for me, but once I got over the idea that this had nothing to do with the game, I rather enjoyed it. Cheesy popcorn movie. The scariest FX of all were The Rock's over-bleached day-glo teeth (why do people do that?).

Haven't played or seen any of the others.

tlchwi02: I Like Bread: Sure, Doom doesn't have much plot to begin with, but surely there's 90 minutes' worth. How the hell do you make a Doom movie, and leave out Hell and demons?

eh, who wants to risk religious controversy on their b-action flick by dragging religion into it? also, i could see why they would consider "hell" a little goofy to try and explain? i didn't think changing it to generic science evil #238 was the big issue.

they should have manned up and just made the whole movie in first person. couldn't have made it worse- and even then, when it sucked it would still at least be memorable suckage.


The game never even brings religion into it. They made Hell a different dimension in which demons exist and are scientifically advanced. It is very well done in that concept and can easily be used by Hollywood. Hell, Star Wars had a hell like planet in Mustifar.

DOOM I was the most pissed off about cause I am a HUGE DOOM fan. I saw that movie opening night and went.. What the hell?!?! Where's hell? What is this evil gene BS?!?! It ruined the entire idea of DOOM. You know, Hell literally on Mars / Earth. They were supposed to be demons. Not some mutated human.

The Resident Evil movie selection needs to be changed. Not all of the RE movies were horrible. Though they do not list the other good one, the CGI Degeneration (has nothing to do with the Live Action movies).

Why put Street Fighter Legend of Chun-Li on the list and not just place the live action Street Fighter movies like they did for Resident Evil? Both were sub-par from good.

I try not to hold this against people, because my own sister LOVES the Resident Evil movies but...you know what...I'm afraid you just might like shiatty movies. Because those movies are shiatty. They are shiat filled shiat, dipped in shiat, then simmered on low for 5 hours in shiat. But of course, so are all of the games excluding RE1, RE2, and RE4*, so what do I expect.

*Even this game is only "good" until about 3/4s of the way through, then it just becomes plain farking retarded


I was talking about Resident Evil Degeneration made by Capcom and is cannon in the games universe as it introduces Tricell that was baddies in RE5. That movie is freakin awesome that Claire is much of a ace shot as Leon and has just as many moves. The live action movies on the other hand are a guilty pleasure of mine. At least the first one is and the second is decent at best. But they all went down hill from there to crappy MST3K movies.

tlchwi02: Strategeryz0r: The new one focuses on the Swiss outpost that initially found the alien object under the ice.

they're norwegians mac!

really though, The Thing is one of my all time favorite movies. i know it by rote, and the new one is a remake pretending to be a prequel. other than ruining/missing the point of the best parts of the original (all male cast, excellent music, great casting) it tried to hit the same points as the original movie almost shot for shot. It was kind of sad, because the parts that should have worked were so telegraphed (straight out of the original) that they were boring.

and really, the prequel concept in the end took away from the first. it really cuts out a lot of the mystery that made the first one so tremendous and creepy. knowing every detail of how the norwegians came to grief not only isn't important, its not fun. your imagination (backed by what happens to the americans when faced with the same enemy) is better than anything even an inspired script could have delivered.


I am tired as hell today, but the bolded part made me laugh. Thank you for the first laugh of the day, one that's off to a pretty crappy start.

I agree to an extent. I thought the prequel was pretty needless and it lacked a lot of the tension that made the carpenter version great. Frankly I would have rather seen Carpenter given the ability to remake his film with modern FX. I mean he got it about as close to perfect as I think anyone could have gotten, he just needs some FX that will stand up to the test of time better(when the first thing in the dog turns, you can clearly see it's rubber. Not a big deal, just takes away from the experience a tad bit)

At least the first one is and the second is decent at best. But they all went down hill from there to crapp ...


I own the three live action movies and am thinking of getting the 4th one for the hell of it. And I also own the Degeneration movie as well. Which IS the RE movie and beats anything the live action ones can make.

Gunny Highway: slayer199: Silent Hill creeped me out...but I hadn't played the video game.

The game was creepier.


Silent Hill 2 left its mark on me, in a good way. Creepy, creepy story. Once the game revealed why the main character was in the situation he was in, I was haunted to the core.

4 was cool too, but the main character wasn't as interesting. The villain had a great story, and the music/sound effects blew me away. When you find out where Walter has been the whole time... that was awesome.

Degeneration was surprisingly well done. I bought it on a whim years ago, still own it.

yves0010: Jim from Saint Paul: yves0010: mooseyfate: yves0010: Noted that it was mentioned... Mario! Why isn't Mario on the list.

And Silent Hill and PoP were decent movies. Though I hated PoP when I first saw it. It grew on me when I decided to toss it in its own universe that had nothing to do with the games. Then it became a good movie.

And I never played a Silent Hill game. So that is why I actually enjoyed the movie.

DOOM I was the most pissed off about cause I am a HUGE DOOM fan. I saw that movie opening night and went.. What the hell?!?! Where's hell? What is this evil gene BS?!?! It ruined the entire idea of DOOM. You know, Hell literally on Mars / Earth. They were supposed to be demons. Not some mutated human.

The Resident Evil movie selection needs to be changed. Not all of the RE movies were horrible. Though they do not list the other good one, the CGI Degeneration (has nothing to do with the Live Action movies).

Why put Street Fighter Legend of Chun-Li on the list and not just place the live action Street Fighter movies like they did for Resident Evil? Both were sub-par from good.

I try not to hold this against people, because my own sister LOVES the Resident Evil movies but...you know what...I'm afraid you just might like shiatty movies. Because those movies are shiatty. They are shiat filled shiat, dipped in shiat, then simmered on low for 5 hours in shiat. But of course, so are all of the games excluding RE1, RE2, and RE4*, so what do I expect.

*Even this game is only "good" until about 3/4s of the way through, then it just becomes plain farking retarded

I don't care about the RE storyline anymore. It's so warped and goofy. It's like any comic book series at this point as no one dies. *Randomly insert character not seen in 2 games here*.

The gameplay, however, is fun and why I care about the series.

Maybe I'll try reading it on Wikipedia. Shouldn't have to do that to make it make sense though.

Little loophole here (as they were both based off of the same ride and not one off the other), but glad to see that Monkey Island/Pirates of the Caribbean wasn't on the list. :)

Personally, I enjoyed the Resident Evil movies. There's no such thing as a good video game movie but I thought that the RE series was enjoyable.

I know it's way past 10 years old. But I don't care what anyone says...

I love Wing Commander the movie.

I REALLY MISS Wing Commander the games.
