Friday Rant: Video Game Movies….enough said.

First of all let me start by saying Uwe Boll, I hate you… Ok now I can begin my second rant in this new series on why video game movies are terrible. If you don’t know who Uwe Boll is count yourself lucky, he is responsible for direction movies such as BloodRayne and House of the Dead. Before you get excited saying “Hey I love those games, I bet the movies are cool.” you should know they are in fact terrible, so terrible most people online refer to them as the worst video game movies made. Now to be fair Boll isn’t the only one responsible anyone remember that god awful Super Mario Bros. movie, I know internet sorry I brought it up we said to never speak of it again. There are even more to add to the list such as Doom (ya having the Rock in your movie doesn’t make it good), Dead or Alive, Mortal Kombat, and tons more really just check the $1 bin at your local Wal-mart bound to be a few in there.

Is it too much to ask for just some quality movies to be made by real directors that are based on video games. I would love to see Grand Theft Auto done correctly as it already has that movie feel to it. Instead will we resort to watching lame adaptions that almost have nothing to do with the games plot (Resident Evil) and somehow still sell the mediocrity to us gamers that just want more out of games. Only time will tell.

All I’m saying is Uwe Boll please stop….please…..stop.

  1. I agree the first MK movie was great, though not a movie based on an actual video game “Gamer” was also a good movie.
