I'm a fan of the Mortal Kombat movies and I have both of them on DVD.
The first movies was,at the time, the shit. While I thought the second one just had too many characters in it and mediocre writing. I'm happy that Christopher Lambert is returning as Raiden and hopefully MK3 is like the first one.
I also like the Mario Bros. movie but still it was cheesy. And also I had a crush on Samantha Mathis for a while.
They killed Sub-Zero with a bucket of water. The Mortal Kombat movies can suck it.
If they studied their paper money for clues as to what their country was all about, they found, among a lot of other baroque trash, a picture of a truncated pyramid with a radiant eye on top of it, like this:
Not even the President of the United States knew what that was all about. It was as though the country were saying to its citizens, "In nonsense is strength."
If you want to see a Grand Theft Auto movie, see the ORIGINAL Gone in 60 Seconds; the main part plays just like those games, with fewer guns. It'll probably do well just on popularity alone and all you need is the same Fast and the Furious plot.
If Hollywood wanted a large arcade audience you could always make Dance Dance Revolution: The Movie (oh no I'm in a world full of arrows!!)
My props to Mortal Kombat for the best video game to movie soundtrack.
Sierra Quest movies...you mean like Leisure Suit Larry? 8) I'd choose LucasArts' Monkey Island series which looked great as a cartoon but could use a better lift if it goes into a live action movie.
I don't know where Zelda would fit. If it's mainly with kids it could go the way of Mario and Pokemon with a cartoon series.
