Why Won't Video Game Movies Work Any Time Soon?

Since we're lost in the doldrums of late summer and there really aren't going to be any big time video game releases in the near future, I thought it would be a good idea to go through a list of video game movies and how they work in general to see why they are all uniformly terrible. Sure there have been a few exceptions but they have been very few to say the least and it really doesn't look like anything's going to change any time soon.

The story is too old to be commented.

there is a little movie called silent hill.

it is by far the best movie based off a video game.

as an example of how a video game can make a good movie.

I think its because movie directors aren't involving the creators of the IP.

Yep, happens a lot. The devs for the Tekken were not giving any say in the movie and thought it turned out horrible.

i think the first tomb raider did some what a descent job ,buy the second one did end up becoming a disaster... Cant wait for the uncharted movie though !!!!!!

Are you dumb as bricks? Movies based off books suck too. Just look at the Tucker Max movie...
