Videogame movies

Post by SirClive » Sun Feb 08, 2009 4:34 am

After making the new audio show for Gaming verdict on the subject of movies based on games (which you can get here.. http://www.gamingverdict.com/article-25 ... how-2.html ), I have decided to try and collect movie DVDs based on games. So I woulld like to try and make a list of the ones people are aware of.

I will also mark the ones I don't have, so if you are looking to sell a copy of one you have watched then let me know and I may buy it from you.

The list so far is (bold means I want it)...

Alone in the Dark
Alone in the Dark 2
Bloodrayne
Bloodrayne 2
Dead or Alive
Doom
Double Dragon
Fatal Fury
Final Fantasy The Spirits Within
Final Fantasy VII - Advent Children
Hitman
House of the Dead
House of the Dead 2
In The Name Of The King: A Dungeon Siege Tale
Max Payne
Mortal Kombat
Mortal Kombat Annihilation
Mortal Kombat Conquest: The Final Battle
Pokemon: The First Movie
Postal
Resident Evil
Resident Evil Apocalypse
Resident Evil Extinction
Resident Evil Degeneration
Silent Hill
Street Fighter: The Movie
Street Fighter 2 The Animated Movie
Street Fighter Alpha
Super Mario Bros
Tomb Raider
Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life

Ive seen a bootleg of Bloodrayne two
One of the few films that made me think that pokeing my own eyes out would be a good pass time

This might help

Just dont start on the animes based on them
You will need a lot more cash and a spare room

(WHY NO STRIDER ANIME)

I watched both Bloodrayne's this week and enjoyed them both. I certainly don't think Uwe Boll is the devil that some think.
Am including Anime's but only ones available in English language. That should reduce it quite a bit.

Street Fighter: The Movie
Have you had a bump to the head?

I never though I'd say this about a Street Fighter game, but, Street Fighter: The Movie is CRAP!

Typo Max Payne (was that intentional?)

It was a great movie.

In that case, you missed Pokemon.

I'm slowly building on these myself, picking them up here and there.
Are you also collecting the game inspired ones, like Tron and Stay Alive?

I was wrong with the spelling, but you are wrong about the film!

Yes, but not sure what Stay Alive is?

You know, it's probably nostalgia, but I always liked the Street Fighter film, what I like about it most is the pacing, it's like Rocky IV in that respect, never really a dull moment.


It's entertaining, but very cheesy.

Is the podcast only about Max Payne or would I have to listen through to find what you said about it? If so, why not give me the time point so I can cue right to it or just post it in a few concise sentences.

Stay Alive is a horror film based on the concept that players of a (fictional) videogame will die in real life if they die in the game. It wasn't as bad as I expected it to be and is no worse than the average videogame licenced movie.

That would be some film collection, are you sure you wouldn't rather track down Amstrad GX4000 carts! :wink:

Does Tron count, a game based on a movie based on a game?
