Gaming Enthusiast: Before they die and get respawned, of course. Here are some films that gamers could relate to.
TRON, man... It's annoying to see how few people have actually watched it. Love that movie.
Yeah it's a fantastic movie. I think most people have seen tron contrary to your experience, and a lot of people would have seen it when tron legacy was coming out. darthv72 More people definitely need to see office space, that's a great movie, I've got the DVD next to my bed.
it amazes me how many people who work in office environments (cubical, etc) have never seen office space. The whole red swing line stapler goes right over their head. on topic...there was rumor that a sequel to the last starfighter was being kicked around. If not a sequel then a remake would be nice. With today's cg it would look even better and possibly with 3d really make the viewer feel like they are piloting a gunstar.
I've seen both TRON movies and I think the new one is better than the old one. But in all honesty TRON is far from movies that I even remotely like. I don't even know why I watched the first one...I must have been really bored back than. The new one I wanted to give a chance and wasn't much better. Point is, TRON isn't a movie in my opinion that must be watched before you die. If we are talking about video game movies than I can only mention two of them and say that they are good. One is Mortal Kombat (the first one only, the second is trash) and Silent Hill. Those are the only two movies gamers have to watch.
Yeah, I've got to disagree with Tron. There was nothing good about that movie. The visuals may have been revolutionary for the time and from the viewpoint of historical cinema, it might be interesting from that perspective but the movie itself was god awful. I'm a movie guy now but I never saw this as a kid nor did I grow up watching many movies (I was 8 at the time this came out and the closest theatre to me was a 3 hour drive), but when I watched it prior to the release of the new Tron I almost couldn't finish it. Even if you could look past the unbelievably one dimensional characters the movie was just....so...boring! The premise was good, the idea was sound and yet in execution it just became this tedious, unwatchable slog of a movie. And for some reason they never felt the reason to explain anything..ever. Maddening. When you have a plot this thin you just can't drag it out for as long as they did hear without boring your audience to tears. Did I really watch 15 minutes about them drinking energy water? It certainly felt like it. Apparently they also developed some sort of time warp for this movie because they made 96 minutes feel like 4 long hours. I sat in a hospital for 7 1/2 hours yesterday with my wife (she's fine) and I think I would have preferred that to having to watch Tron again at just over 90 minutes. Although it is close. I'd have to think about it if given the option. I liked the followup, I'm looking forward to the next movie and even the animated series, but I can't recommend Tron to anyone. In conclusion: I did not care for the first Tron. It's painful.
I agree. Tron does not merit even a single viewing. I can't beleive that anyone who would write a list like this would put Tron at the top of the list.... Therefore, I don't think the blogger has actually viewed the movie Tron, and suspect he hasn't viewed several of the movies in the list. This article is transparent link whoring.
I honestly thought both the new one and the old one were pretty bad. But thats just my opinion.
To those commenting on Office Space, I saw it and thought it was great. I also liked both Tron movies. Is it weird that I like the second one even more than the first?
Yes, it is weird. :P
No I love the second movie...I love Tron
Metropolis (1927) Dir: Fritz Lang Starring: Brigette Helm
King Of Kong is hands-down one of the best documentaries I've ever seen.
Scott Pilgrim get's an honorable mention?.. that movie is littered with video game references while the matrix (how ever awesome) just plays like one Zelda base line... Mario power ups.. Video Game visuals.. smh.. and what about Hackers with Angelina Jolie? given it's about hacking the main character loves playing video games..
Scott Pilgrim VS. The World is such an amazing movie. I love how well they implemented that graphic novel style to it with the narratives.
Graveyard of the Fireflies, first movie to ever make me cry. Recommend it to anyone that likes a good anime film.
It's just grave of the fireflies not graveyard. And while I agree that everyone should see it, it's not really relevant to gaming.
Yeah I was wondering myself had this article got approve.
This has nothing to do with gaming but everyone needs to see Big Trouble in Little China. Now to make it relevant.... War Games and Last Starfighter are ok.
No Grandma's boy? List automatically fails. It's a comedy about a game tester group. I mean if i was doing this the matrix would be gone instantly and replaced by Grandma's boy.
Just make sure to get fried first. I love the dealer dude, funny as hell.
"I got this new shit called Frankenstein" "why do they call it that?" "because when you smoke it, it makes you walk like this" http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Yea never watch Double Dragon, terrible movie. The only sliver of goodness is a three second close up of Alyssa Milano's backside.
FIRST MATRIX was the best compare to 2,3 still would like to know what happen to NEO end of 3???
I would add BladeRunner, which practically invented cyber punk and Aliens, which practically invented space marines.
For survival horror fans I suggest John Carpenter's The Thing (the original one) and Jacob's Ladder. These two had a giant role in forging what we see in the original Resident Evil and Silent Hill.....
