With the DOOM movie on our doorsteps and a Halo movie in the works (that we all hope is better) why not discuss some of the movies based off games that we've seen?


To be honest, most of them are utter crap.

Ok well first of all DOOM pretty good movie very cool if your into video games and even though there is only a little bit of first person at the end it is still cool

The plot leaves much to be deserved but its still pretty solid
I love the zombies

Overall its a very cool movie go check it out

I've heard absolutely nothing but negative feedback on it. One reviewer whom I find myself agreeing with almost all the time said "Doom (the movie) is a dreadful, hackneyed piece of cinema - a D-grade mess that's more a rip-off of Alien than an attempt to tell a compelling story" and "There's almost nothing here for an average movie-goer, even one who likes dumb action and bloodsoaked horror. Doom is a waste of time and money. Of course, there is one element of the movie that invites interactivity: talking back to the screen about the stupidity of the characters, the screenwriters, the director, and yourself for wasting $10 and two hours"

Plus, who can forget what Ctrl+Alt+Del thought of it?


Even when I first heard about Doom I was aprehensive, having played it more than I've played any other game (yes, even more so than FF8) I felt that it wasn't really suitable for being made into a movie, few games are. Plot came second in the game, as it does in most video games. The type of game that would transfer easiest into movie format would be RPGs, but most of them go for too long so they'd have to be cut down a bit and most of the typical boss fights altered so that it feels like a movie and not a video game. If I wanted a video game I'd play one.

I'm not to familiar with Doom but the Resident Evil games are much better than the movies thankfully. Why? Because I said so...well, ignore that piece but the movies aren't really scary enough as if you played the game.

I've seen a lot of gaming movies...
Resident Evil is the best one but it isn't good.

Most game movies suck since you've played the games.

Exactly. Some movies are okay but when it's a game-turned-into-movie thing, the excitement isn't there much since you as the gamer is playing the character and deciding on it's movements, with the movie you have to watch what other people thought of.

The games are good so the normal thought is that the movies are going to be great and all magazines says that the movie is going to be great. So when you go there and you realize that the movie isn't so good it's only natural to feel a little dissapointed....

No I didn't know about that but did you hear about Silent Hill? I heard that it's actually going to be pretty good. Here's a link I found:
