Another one I forgot about. With Alec Baldwin right?

Er well I wouldn't know since it's CGI but maybe he did voice over.



Around the Network

FF spirits within if that counts if it doesn't Tomb Raider, video game movies are really slim pickings



Children of men. I know it's a totally different story, but it sure feels like it was inspired by Half-life 2.

This and that.

On a similar note games based on movies are just as bad as movies based on games.



Around the Network

Silent Hill.It stays true to the Story of the game and its seriously scary. The end is also great. Perfect end imo.


To everyone who has never watched it and thinks videogame movies are shit. Try this one might change your mind (It changed mine atleast).

I have only seen the first one, but have to admit that I enjoyed it because it was so bad that it was good.

Also, if we're including documentaries, then I have to say that Fistful Of Quarters is a good movie.  Poor Steve Weibe.

Maybe I should try Silent Hill.  I keep hearing good things about it, but I also heard a lot of good things about the Resident Evil movies and I don't like those at all.

I'm picking Street Fighter, only because Raul Julia gave the most deliciously hammy performance as M. Bison.  That movie is oh-so-quotable because of him.

I dont like RE. It bored me. I think Tomb Raider is mediocre. TBH SH is the only Videogame movie I really like. Its simply a good horror movie that perfectly does what its supposed to do.
