and then ditch it afterwards or it goes into oblivion and no one ever talks about it.
I mean there was a Halo movie being made? or a MGS4 movie?

There needs to be 2-hour complete CG movie, now that would be cool, but no one seems to make them except Pixar.

Dreamworks makes CGI movies, Disney did but farms all their stuff out to Pixar now since the company wants to bring back animated films, which is good since Disney is only Disney with the stuff that made them famous, what on earth was the old CEO thinking when he decided to shut down ALL studios focused on 2D animation in favor of 1 3D animation studio????

And I recently read on IGN that Warner Brothers is pushing Lost Planet with a budget of over 150 million

Of all the movies to get a green light, they pick an above average game with a so-so story as opposed to MGS, Halo, GTAIV, God of War etc.

I can name a hundred games that deserve to be made into movies, but instead, Hollywood keeps picking random games to adapt

Studying animation at university we keep on being told '2D Animation is dying'. Nah, its not dying in popularity, but the industry thinks it is due to not risking the production of 2D.
This is very annoying as I want to head up into the production of the 2D animation industry, concept/writer/director and this damned economy is making it worse due to 2D being closed left right and centre due to the easier level of labour for CGI or Stop Motion. The only feature legnth 2D animations you'll see now are probably indie films shown as festival that depress you to heck. Thats what I've found anyway.

Personally, I hate CG movies with a murderous passion. And I don't think game-to-movie is a good idea. Silent Hill was good (not GREAT, but still a good movie), but the rest was garbage.

I can't even start to imagine how they could possibly make a MGS movie. Just look at MGS4. The end of the game alone (all incredibly important and incredibly awesome stuff) lasts 2 hours. That's just the end of the game. They simply CANNOT compress all this in a movie.

Lost Planet to me was an awesome game!!!

yeah squeeze every possible cent out of the franchise and don't miss to push it into "epic" so more people get aware of your console.

I heard Rick Moranis will be playing his role.

There's been talks about a Uncharted movie too. I would see this though.

thebudgetgamer3408d ago

Spike473408d ago

A Gears of War movie would be awesome but when are they releasing it? 2019?

"I think an uncharted movie would blow the living crap out of Indiana Jones"

Nice Try. Try Later.

I really can't see this doing very well... Really I mean no offense to gears fans. The game was innovative and all that. Great game for the systems release... I feel this movie won't offer much in terms of story or tech... Just a bunch of blood and dark rooms and... Something like the resident evil movie but not as good... Bad actors and... I hate to predict gloom and doom but good things need to be left alone and not milked into cheese...
