It seems like game-to-film adaptations have become much more popular as of late. With the release of Ratchet and Clank, Assassin’s Creed, Warcraft… angry birds… So it’s no big surprise that film makers will soon be gracing the silver screen with one of gaming’s biggest fanboy series: Tomb Raider.
Virtual reality for the Everyman
With every new generation of gaming comes a few new gadgets and fads. With the seventh generation we saw the move to motion controls. Sony released the Sixaxis controller and later the PlayStation Move, Microsoft went the way of the Kinect camera system, and Nintendo led the charge with the Wiimote and Wii motion plus.
A family in need of healing.
Zack Snyder is stepping back from Justice League and letting Joss Whedon take the reins for now to allow him time with his children after the suicide of his daughter.
Most details are being kept private for obvious reasons but Zack wanted to let the masses know why he was doing this. He stated that he knew stories would pop up on the internet if he didn’t give an explanation and at this point he doesn’t care anymore what is said because the healing of his other children, his wife, and himself are more important.
“You know how to talk to fish right?”
Anyone who knows anything about comics, especially DC, knows that the laughing stock of the Justice League lineup is Aquaman. The man who can talk to fish right? Well, not quite. With the upcoming JL movie on the way later this year I figured I would give a quick recap of the man and his feats.
Does Aguilar or the film take a dive?
Hollywood does not have the best record when it comes to taking video games and bringing them to the big screen. I am sure I do not need to remind you of the Mortal Kombat movies or the Mario Brothers film. Say what you will about Resident Evil but they are not the best movies out there either in my opinion. So when a new announcement comes out that one of your favorite games is coming to a theater near you, likely the first thing felt is fear. Fear that they will not make the characters what you expect or the story will be poor.
