    Yes the 1st Mortal Kombat was the best, I saw it when I was about 15, loved it.

    Mario Bros - Disgraceful and an Atrocity
    Prince of Persia - A 🤬 Mess
    Tomb Raider 1 - Probably 2nd Place, Tomb Raider 2 - Weak
    Street Fighter - Watched it one time and never watched it again, lol at Guile being the main character and Ken and Ryu being supporting cast. Soundtrack was fire though
    Dead or Alive - TV Movie status
    Mortal Kombat: Annihilation - Weak
    Resident Evil - Stop making sequels enough is enough
    Doom- SMH @ the Rock
    Final Fantasy - the animation was good but the movie was average
    Double Dragon - They really couldn't of been serious when they did this.


    It's sucks that Hollywood just can't make good video game movies. The characters in games are so ILL and we have the effects. Super Mario would be Epic if done right. Zelda could be on Lord of the Rings status if done right. After all these movies I wish Hollywood would stop making video game films.

    Yep mk is still the gold standard, silent hill was good. Lesson here is stick close to source material you will do good, take liberties and you fail

    what about silent hill?
    DoA should have had bustier girls.
    🤬 is this euro model 🤬 ?

    i own double dragon on vhs and dvd...

    Silent Hill was really good, flawed, but still good.

    The problem is Hollywood doesnt take games seriously...

    If a 🤬 of War movie is made I want the people that made the game to be heavily involved...

    MK the GOAT...Which says a lot about the ridiculously subpar video game movies that have been released

    And I don't see why its so hard...Its not like before, when games had little to no storylines...These days games are as intricate as any other medium...Save for books

    How do you make this thread and not post the reptile lui kang fight?

    But yeah you are right.

    The feeling you got when you first saw scorpion and subzero walk through those doors on that boat as a kid= priceless.

    Mortal Kombat 2 was a result of listening to the fan boys and trying to fit every single character from the game in the movie somehow. just a disaster. and Jax was just laughable.

    yup....thats what I always said about MK2.....they simply tried to do too much...and the end result was aweful.....should have just focused on a few characters from the 2nd game and came with a cohesive story....lmao @ shao khan and raiden being brothers

    Yeah , MK is the best. The choreography is what put it over the top. Silent Hill was solid, too, though.

    maybe i didnt really play the game but I thought that movie was just strange and weird. I finsihed watching the movie like "what did I just watch?" But if the game was like the movie then damn.


    and Alone in the dark is the worst movie ever, maybe even worst than House of the Dead.(at least hotd was at least laughably bad)

    Silent Hill is the best we've had so far. The film has the look and the atmosphere of the games spot on (the cinematography was great), it's just the moment you're introduced to the other townspeople that the film falls apart and never really recovers. That, and the fact the film just isn't very scary. Just hoping the sequel improves on the original and we actually get a good film this time around.

    I didnt think silent hill was that great. maybe it was because i never played the game or didnt see it until i was 17. That 🤬 gettin 🤬 by barbed wire was grimy tho. Mortal Kombat was dope. i actually liked the 2nd one too lol.
