Anyone that’s seen enough video game movies knows that this particular genre is fraught with difficulties. Mostly they consist of bad scripts, lousy actors and directors with their heads up their asses. One of the better franchises is the Resident Evil series. They were nothing to write home about, of course, but at least they didn’t suck so bad that you wanted your money back. Unfortunately, even the little bit of goodness that showed up in the first of these films faded quickly as they got progressively worse. Now it looks like the powers-that-be are finally ready to pull the plug on the franchise and they’re going out with one final installment of Resident Evil. Read on for what details we’ve managed to find. (more…)

Is there ever going to be a good movie adaptation based on a great video game? Well, with the next couple of years looking set to provide us with a bountiful mix of ‘video-game-come-movie-adaptations’ – with releases such as: Ratchet and Clank, Hitman: Agent 47, Angry Birds, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter and Splinter Cell – the odds are stacked in our favor that a good movie will come from one of these titles, so yeah! You still not convinced? Well, there is one game that has been laying low amongst the deluge of titles scheduled for release within the next two years, a game that came bursting onto the scene in 2014 at San Diego Comic-Con. This one seems certain to lift the video game curse. The game we are referring to; is, Blizzard Entertainment’s massive multi-platform game World of Warcraft, and this looks to have the biggest potential to live up to expectations of the fans.  (more…)

At the beginning of the year, it’s only natural to start re-evaluating where you are and where you’re going, and to start making plans to change course and get to that new place. We call them New Year’s Resolutions, and a great many of us make them every January 1. Should we expect movie studios to be so different? In the game of “Musical Chairs” that is the major studio release schedule, we’ve got some old favorites making some new moves. 20th Century Fox has announced several big moves for major releases over the next couple of years, included among them are a couple of comic book franchises, a video game movie, and a continuation of a major science fiction series.

I’ve been told repeatedly by a female friend of mine that if I looked up the word “Dreamy” in the dictionary I would find a picture of Chris Evans. I guess we’d better add “Hunky” to that list now, because that was the first word out of her mouth when I asked her to describe this video. Evans is dropping bad guys left and right all while flexing those impressive muscles and flashing that winning smile. (more…)

‘Amazing Spidey’ Producer Wants to Ruin Another Hero in Red and Blue

SUPER-MARIO-BROS

If you don’t know the name Avi Arad, I’m sure then that you know the name Spider-Man. Well, Arad is the man that’s been producer of every live-action Spider-Man movie made from the good to excellent films by Sam Raimi through to the subpar Spider-Man 3 and on through the flaccid one-two punch of The Amazing Spider-Man 1 and 2. So let’s split hairs and say that Arad’s batting average at franchise management is .500, and then ask this question: Is Avi Arad the kind of man you want involved in making a new Super Mario Bros. movie? If you answered no, then good news, it seems that Arad has convinced the fine folks at Nintendo into letting him have the movie rights to the game. (more…)

God of war

There were many who left the PlayStation Experience’s Keynote on Saturday feeling slightly underwhelmed due to lack of any announcement (or any footage for that matter), of the PlayStation mainstay, God of War. The action/adventure video game series, loosely based on Greek mythology – which debuted in 2005  – has became a flagship title for the PlayStation brand, comprising seven games across multiple platforms (a trilogy and prequel – God of War I, II, III, and Ascention) and were developed by Sony‘s Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. However, we have yet to see a release of the monolithic and “beastly” franchise on the Playstation 4.
