MonsterVine "I was browsing Yahoo and discovered an article about some upcoming game movies. The usual suspects were there (eg. Prince of Persia, Halo, WoW, and even The Sims), but there was one game series I feel needed to be on the list: Zelda."
No just freaking no. Hollywood movies are made for the western demograph, and because of that you can NEVER capture that what makes zelda zo great. They will make it so freaking standard, else the audience won't like it. But then again, a CGI i could live with that since they can go more orthodox with it.
I Agreed it would be worse then the the russian version of zelda http://www.youtube.com/watc... (Dont Watch If You Are A Hardcore Zelda Fan You Will Break Your Computer.)
"I can't wait to bomb some Dodongos!" What the hell?
They kind of made an unofficial Zelda movie during the 80's! The movie was called "Legend", starred Tom Cruise and Mia Sara, and seemed to copy the Zelda world and a bit of it's story in a way. Put it this way... If the movie was actually called Legend of Zelda, you would have swore it was aan Uwe Boll movie! If you are bored, check it out and notice some of the similarities.
hell no! zelda is best in game form. It will feel cheap as a movie. few games are movie worthy for that fact.
The art direction is campy. It is a loose ripoff of Lord of the Rings. Seriously, Zelda was great as a 1980's game and then reinvented for the 1990's. It needs to be completely reinvented for the current decade.
Because by the time it comes out, it'll already be a new decade.
make it in CGI lol (like FF7 (it wasnt bad)) think about all the gamers that gonna c it they shall think about it (lots of money in it)
This is news? They should make Lair a movie. Think about it. Good movie = Bad game Good Game = Bad movie Therefore Bad game = Good movie eh? eh?
I while back, april to be precise (Cant remember if it was this year or last year?!), IGN made a trailer for a feature length Zelda film as an april's fool joke and it was actually really well done.
If it's not broken. Don't fix it.
