Updated with the top 10 video game based movies of all-time on Rotten Tomatoes.



I'm actually looking forward to seeing this tomorrow, seems to be reviewing surprisingly well considering my original thoughts were it could either go from bad to meh... it might actually be good! :o



That is better than I expected



duduspace11 "Well, since we are estimating costs, Pokemon Red/Blue did cost Nintendo about $50m to make back in 1996"

Silent Hill is that low? Seems harsh.

And I thought the first res film was half decent.



So this movie might not be half bad?

I like the Res movies personally. Sure they have very little in common with the games, but they're still fun to watch. I think the 3rd one was my favorite, followed by the first. 



My favorites are probably Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter.
They were so bad that it made them good.

The worst one I've seen are probably Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, and Dragonball Evolution.
They were so bad that it made them really really bad.

I plan to check out Sonic soon though. Sounds like a decent film, and I hope they get rewarded for reworking Sonic's look.

One of the reviews I read said they couldn't see how they thought the other version would have been passable. So it seems like the redesign will help it out a bit. 

I'm seeing it on Valentine's Day so hopefully it lives up to the hype!
