I think the actors could be younger, but I always tend to say that about elves.

Why does it take this ridiculously long for video games with powerful stories and characters to get made into movies? Are they just worried that like the Dungeons and Dragons movie or the Final Fantasy movie, the movies will suck? Is Nintendo just holding out or do movie companies intentionally stay away due to how rabid the fan bases are (I think we know that movie companies have no soul and really don't care if they piss off all the fanboys)?

Mortal Kombat was a great videogame movie! But Street Fighter blew, so I guess it's even there.

I guess the real question though is whether the fans of the games even want movies to be made of them. Then again, fanboys complain everytime a new sequel comes out and say "Hey, but they didn't include X move and now I hate it!!" How fucking emo.

I doubt we'll be seeing anything for quite a long time, so I'm not going to hold my breath. But personally, I'd love it if Zelda, Metroid, Castlevania, Vice City, and a few others made it to the big screen.

But fuck John Leguizamo and another Super Mario movie.

P.S. Oh, and Fuck Uwe Boll too!

It's really bad when searching for "zelda" in thread titles only doesn't even pick that up. :*( Neither does the word "movie".

I think my comments on Uwe Boll still stand though.

Ya know, I figured maybe the search function would be reliable again considering that June is "Upgrading the Site Sucks Month".

And it's July 1st.
