Some comic book movies are up with some of the best movies of all time, including Batman Begins, Spiderman, and The Dark Knight. The best videogame movie to ever come out so far is Resident Evil (in my opinion). Can a movie off of a videogame ever be awesome and if yes, when?

 

Really?  Really? 

Don't get me wrong, those weren't bad movies by any means but those movies do not deserve to be anywhere near the best movies of all time list.

 

Dark Knight does. It's one of the best movies ever made. In my opinion. Naturally your opinion is yours, but a lot of people agree with me :p ho ho hoo

probaly not. there really havent been any movies based off of games in general, and there havent been any great movies based off games.

what do we have... resident evil... we're getting lost planet, there was supposed to be a halo movie like 100 years ago, max pain which i heard sucked, hitman which i heard sucked, doom which i never saw, uh...

Hitman didn't suck at all.. it was actually a big surprise to find that it was pretty awesome... I just saw it recently, was holding out because i heard the same that you had.

 

Ther's also Dungeon Siege... lol.. by uwe boll XD and blood raven ... by uwe boll.....

Haven't seen dungeon siege but i heard it sucked ballz.

You also forget Postal and House of the Dead by Uwe Boll...I think he made Alone in the Dark too...not sure though.

 



probably not.

Comic book movies are all shit imo. It's nothing more than mainstream entertainment with little brains for the middle/lower class audiences.

I think you have missed some great movies then, I don't think I need to mention one of the best films in the last decade to get my point across.

 

As for popularity, RE I think was considered succesful as was Lara Croft.  Although most of Pokemon popularity is not from feature films, but I would think the Pokemon TV/Movie ventures has proven just as succesful has the Dark Knight.

 Good film. Much better than the Dark Knight.
