I like how every fucking one conveniently forgets about Wreck It Ralph every single time one of these threads are made.

Yes it fucking counts.

Implying Racket Rolf is a video game property.

The film stops being about traveling between game worlds less than halfway through to focus on Candy Land. Shit, there's a reason they called it "Sugar Rush" in Japan and marketed it like this.

Already did. They're called Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil and Prince of Persia.

Then your opinion is worthless and I hope your entire family burns in a house fire.

It's an enjoyable film to watch despite any flaws it may have, and that makes it a "good" movie. I don't care for any hipster garbage and memes, if a movie is enjoyable, it is good.

For what it's worth, I worked on this film and it was corporate meddling from top to bottom. I'm not saying removing the suits from the equation would fix the problems with it, but the shot callers on the corporate level are morons.

Video Game stories are generally garbage but gamers are plebs of course so they think it's groundbreaking shit (similar to capeshit fans). Like there are people on Sheeky Forums who unironically think Kojima is a good storyteller.

MK is in the same vein as Big Trouble in little china, its campy and the early MK games were inspired as such and filled with kungfu movie tropes.

If you think MK isnt a good movie you are either ignorant or just have shit taste.

Big Trouble in Little China is actually good and was meant to be a comedy.

Funny how Nintendrones keep spamming the movie score while ignoring the game on Sheeky Forums. Why aren't you playing Star Fox instead?

Nobody mentioned the movie on Sheeky Forums either. /tv/ exists for a reason. It's funny how much shitposters starting to care about the shitty movie once the game was a hit and Star Fox fucking flopped.

@Illusionz
No. Most of the time video games only work because of the actual gameplay combined with story, characters etc. The story on its own doesn't hold up well enough to be made into a movie. Also, games are usually 10+ hours long whereas movies are typically around 2; trying to condense the entire game into "something" that makes sense and is enjoyable is impossible.

Ratchet and Clank could have made a good movie though if they just adapted the actual story from R&C1.

The movie doesn't follow the game at all and it's filled with a bunch of little shit referential jokes and some of the worst slapstick ever.
