Not sure what to make of this ...

 ... looks like Harrelson brings some comedy to it, although probably not the only comedy in it.

Avatar gets a re-release prior to the sequel coming out! Is James Cameron planning on using all the money he's made to clone himself so he can finally marry himself?

The trailer for the new Super Mario Bros. movie dropped last night. Honestly, I don't hate it.

Has it not been proven that its impossible to make a decent movie from a video game?

So i noticed the '93 movie has a snazzy 'So bad its good' Blue ray release. Come on, Hollywood wheres the multi disc set of Manos?

Sonic was liked and has an 81% approval rating from audiences (critics on the other hand, not so much) with Sonic 2 getting a 78% by audiences (also panned by critics). The recent Mortal Combat movie and also Detective Pikachu also went over well with audiences (80% and 86% respectively). Honestly, recent video game movies have been having a better record, so it's not out of the realm of possibility for the new Mario movie to be decent. There's also the Castlevania series on Netflix which is surprisingly good. Which reminds me, I need to catch up! I've only seen the first 2 seasons and there are 2 more to go.

The "all video game movies are bad" thing is mostly a meme now, but there are movies that buck that. My only worry so far is Chris Pratt. He doesn't sound like the video game Mario, however he does sound like cartoon Mario from the early 90s.

A rich family goes to their winter mountain retreat for Christmas when a terrorist group kicks down the door and takes the family hostage. They know there is a vault with millions of dollars under the retreat and demand they open it. Unfortunately for them, the real Santa Clause (David Harbour) was in the middle of deliver toys when it all went down. Now its up to Santa to save the day!

I confess, i couldn't sit through Sonic when a local network broadcast it and most of the video game movies I've seen are unwatchable.
A flatmate i had in 07/08 was obsessed with Dead Or Alive but i think it may have had something to do with the volleyball scene.

He wants to place it back at the top money maker of all time after Endgame dethroned it.
Saw it once, was mostly forgettable IMO. Had the plot of Fern Gully mixed with sci-fi and 3d effects.

I confess, i couldn't sit through Sonic when a local network broadcast it and most of the video game movies I've seen are unwatchable.

I feel like Sonic 1 was fine. Not great, but not bad.
Sonic 2 I enjoyed a lot more. Looking forward to #3.

Dead or Alive does have some attractive characters in it. It was a fun movie. The first Resident Evil movie 20 years ago or so was fun too IMO. I used to watch it on DVD painting undead back in my uni days.

The best video game movie, is Wreck-it Ralph. Not actually about a real video game though.
Quote from: Gneisenau
I hate people who don't paint their armies, hate them with all my guts. Beats me how they value other things over painting, like eating or brushing teeth.

^i usually watch movies while painting. During my first tenure at tertiary studies i had most of the Simpsons episodes and commentary tracks to them memorized.
I recently tried to sit through the Van Dam Street Fighter movie and laughed hard at it [i hadn't seen it since a TV broadcast in the late 90s]
At the moment my DVD player wont play anything but my copy of Goodfellas. I'm not complaining.
