Glad the videogame to movies curse is gone.

Haha! Now watch all of Sony's upcoming video game movies fail (if they even release).

1. The Angry Birds Movie 2
2. Devil May Cry
3. God of War
4. Gran Turismo
5. Infamous
6. Just Dance
7. The Last of Us
8. Metal Gear Solid
9. Monster Hunter
10. Rabbids
11. Resident Evil Reboot
12. RollerCoaster Tycoon
13. Shadow of the Colossus
14. Sly Cooper
15. Uncharted
16. Watch Dogs

I clicked on inFamous and God of War. I think it's safe to seal the files on that inFamous article from a decade ago. :) Just glad the God Of War article had the original Pacific Rim writers attached to it, and not the writers from the sequel. To be fair, I didn't watch Pacific Rim 2, but that's because it looked soul-crushingly bad.

To be fair, I've only watched 3 of the existing video game movies that Sony was involved in (Resident Evil 1, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within and Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV) and I enjoyed all 3 so I guess some of the upcoming movies could turn out to be enjoyable as well.

Just watched it, and... yeah, it was surprisingly good. Not crazy awesome or anything, but... good. And that's already impressive for what it was. I'd give it a 7/10, was a lot of fun, it was enjoyable both as a movie in itself and as a Pokémon adaptation, the humor was on-point for the most part (there's this one joke early on involving a nose (not spoiling anything here) that had the whole theater laughing out loud for a really long time, myself included, and I'm not normally the guy who laughs at movie jokes for too long), it was just a really fun time. There were some issues, though, of course. Script had many plot points that felt kinda forced, and a fair share of deus ex machina moments, particularly in the second half of the movie. The protagonist had some very questionable acting in a couple of scenes or so. But for what it is, I was really impressed, and am still in a bit of disbelief that I live in a world where this movie is real.

Edit: and by the way, since this is a box office focused thread, well... it being some random Tuesday night on a not-so-popular theater, and on a movie I thought wasn't that big of a deal going by the box office numbers, I thought it was fine to buy the tickets there rather than in advance. My friends took a while to get there, though, and we ended up buying the tickets like, a couple minutes before the session started. And, well, yeah. The whole room was full, except for the front row, where we unfortunately had to watch the movie from. Quite the surprise, honestly, I hope this movie does go on to become a success. Given the timing of its release and the nature of what it is, I think there's a good chance it'll have lengthy legs, or at least I hope as much. It deserves it.
