FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Movies based on video games.
Posted on Monday, March 9 2009 @ 15:23:57 Eastern

So we saw movies that are based upon a video game. Some of the video games are quite remarkable and thus they have entered the minds of film makers alike. So how many movies are the fellow movie industry going to create?

Thanks to fellow GR member letusprey, we have a list of 28 movies that are going or already made based upon a video game title from this site

http://www.examiner.com/x-578-Video-Game-Examiner~y2008m12d17-28-video-games-being-made-into-movies-will-they-suck

I viewed the list and I chose the top five that i predict will be a success! Lets begin.

#5: The Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li

This movie is already made, i'm actually waiting to see this movie. From the great trailers that have been shown it looks action packed. How do i feel about Street Fighter in a movie? Well at first i wasn't to prevailed for the film. I didn't believe Street Fighter had enough storylines to maintain a film base. But i guess you can't judge a game's storyline by it's color. With Kristen Kreuk as Chun Li, they might pull it off.

#4: Halo

Ok i'm going to have to agree with the comment on the site. This game i don't think there's enough work involved. It keeps giving Halo fans and gamers alike the hope of this ever being made...but wait for it....BOOM! the project was on hold, then its not, then it is and so on. The Halo Trilogy was a pretty good for a story line (if you actually understand what they're saying) but their story line is rather short. So who knows, i can't actually confirm the film is being made or not (Due to the fact the news is always changing) But what i do know is if it's being made, the little teaser clips that they've showed must be more creative and influent. The clips have not given me that much interest.

#3: Mortal Kombat:

What say you Scorpion? ready for a frozen movie Sub-Zero? Miss your brother the Lui Kang? The Mortal Kombat movie i'm thrilled to see. The last two movies that were made were pretty decent. It was action packed and led me to want to see another film of Mortal Kombat. With asking for  more characters that were not shown in the previvious films and more of a storyline between each realm will fascinate me to see this movie if made.

#2 Metal Gear Solid

Snake.....SNNNNAAAKKKKKKEEEE! Yes if we're going to have this film we better not see that come up.  My prediction for this film makes it like something is going to explode your mind. In the game itself, you have a great storyline structures and many twisters upon each part of the Metal Gear Series. Ever Since Metal Gear came out on the Nintendo NES the storyline structure should help with the film dramatically. Speaking of storyline, The creator of Metal Gear Solid Hideo Kojima will be writing, so we should look to see a great film....hopefully

#1 Gears of War

Oh But Mr.Ughrochester why did you choose Gears of War as your # 1 pick? Does it have anything to you being a fan of Gears of War? As matter of fact...no it doesn't. Yes i am a fan but i chose this to be number one due to the fact that my man Len Wiseman who directed the action packed and suspense film known as "Live Free or Die Hard" will be directing the film. Not only that we have a great writer Chris Morgan who wrote for "X-men: The Last Stand" will make this film fantastic. Sure i will be like the Lord of The Rings Trilogy, but i'm predicting this film is going to shove our face completely. This is why i chose Gears of War as number one!
