Video Game Films: Not Just Popcorn Fluff

September 9th, 2009 4:12pm EDT
Gamer
Sure, many movies based on video games are just that- game play on screen without a controller. We could spend all day listing more than twenty years' worth of these films including 'Super Mario Brothers', 'Mortal Kombat' films, a slew of 'Pokemon' releases, the 'Tomb Raider' films, 'Final Fantasy', 'Resident Evil' films, 'Silent Hill', 'Doom', 'Bloodrayne', 'Hitman', 'Max Payne', and 'Street Fighter' films. The larger question asks, do they have the potential to be more than just idle game play on screen? The answer is sometimes.

The release of 'Gamer', the next in line for the gen...

Video Game Movies: The Good, The Bad, And The Boll

February 25th, 2009 9:09am EST
Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li
With Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li arriving in theaters February 27, it’s time to take a look back at the video game movies that brought us to this point.

While video games run the gamut of quality - from very good to very bad - video game movies have typically been on the “poor” side of the critical spectrum. Games are written with interactivity in mind, and thus their storylines don’t always mesh with the film medium.

Still, there are a few titles one could argue are at least passable – even if fans of the video games they are based on do not find them loyal to the ori...

In Purely Exploiting Gratuitous Violence, 'Death Race' Remake Kills All Comedic Value

August 22nd, 2008 4:08pm EDT
Death Race
(HollywoodChicago) – While 2008’s “Death Race” makes no secret about being a remake of 1975’s “Death Race 2000” with David Carradine as the title character Frankenstein and Sylvester Stallone as his archrival Machine Gun Joe Viterbo, what’s perhaps less obvious but still clear when you read between the lines is how the film steals from others.

Though the story had a different book cover, Jason Statham’s character as Jensen Ames and then the masked Frankenstein can be directly correlated to (as just one example) Nicolas Cage’s character in 1997’s “Con Air”. We’ve certainly seen this bef...

Taking Your Joystick To The Movies: Video Games That Should Be Made Into Films

January 18th, 2008 11:32am EST
Metal Gear Solid
Let's face it, video game movies usually suck (see article here). For every guilty pleasure such as Resident Evil there is a House of the Dead, Street Fighter, and Mario Brothers stinking up this niche genre. What keeps going wrong?

What I'm here to do, gentle reader, is provide you with a list of video games that I think could become potentially worthwhile movies. This is, of course, assuming they aren't made by Paul Anderson or Uwe Boll.

We don't need big-name stars or directors. All it would really take is a production team who took the source material seriously and a cast th...

Video Games Do Not Make Good Movies

There are some things in Hollywood that just do not work: Lindsay Lohan and sobriety, most marriages, Tim Allen tackling roles not involving Christmas, and successfully adapting a video game into a movie. Why is this so hard?

The powers that be can take a 700-page book and trim it down to a two-hour story. Either they are picking really bad video games to adapt or the people involved just suck. There has yet to be a quality adaptation. So why do studios keep insisting on producing them? They even screwed up Doom, a story that involves Marines fighting aliens. How is that even possible...

Has Hollywood Run Out of Ideas?

November 20th, 2007 11:49am EST
Underdog Movie
There no longer seems to be much originality in Hollywood. When did the ability to sit down and write a captivating screenplay from scratch go out of style? It seems that Hollywood is stuck on turning cartoons and video games into movies. And there's the predatory sequel often lurking and waiting to be as bad as the original movie or better, if we're lucky.

Cartoon Disasters

Talk about digging something out of the woodwork. In the summer of 2007, the 1964-1973 cartoon "Underdog" was brought to life on the big screen, and we have to wonder why? Kids probably enjoyed it, and "Und...
