Well they even got David O. Russell interested in making the Uncharted adaptation, but he's gotten himself attached to so many projects in the past 2 years (hell prior to The Fighter as well) that who knows if we'll actually see him make it.

Scared the shit out of me, made me cry a bit, and I found Sean Bean to be awesome as ever in it.

I appreciate it honestly, the other thing is somewhat insulting. I don't mind NSW calling me it, as he made it up, but it can be aggravating when people I don't even know refer to me with it.

The games are like movies, so, yeah.

Agreeing on everything would be boring and scary. I did not, no. Should I?

And Lance, no, have not seen any of the movies you mentioned.

I'd go see a Mass Effect movie, though.

, I didn't realize you weren't a fan of the nick name. I waited a long time to start using the name and it seemed like you were cool with it, but if you're not, definitely won't do it anymore.

Yeah NSW, definitely check out Animal Kingdom, Pearce doesn't feature much until the final act, but the whole film is worth it, especially the unnerving performance from Jacki Weaver.

I mean I haven't even seen the classics, never seen Casablanca, Gone With the Wind, any of The Godfathers, Raging Bull, Rocky, etc etc etc. NSW told me to watch A Clockwork Orange like two years ago, instead of going out on Saturday night. I still haven't seen it.
I guess I'd rather listen to an album than park myself in front a TV with a good movie for a few hours... Maybe I'll grow up eventually!

Anyway I think video games adaptations are only ever going to be effective in the really stylized genre mold, ala Resident Evil, since the state of gaming is so very poor when it comes to either dramatic or "cinematic" qualities. The medium's best offering are either wholly immersive, almost abstract interactive experiences (like ICO for example) or those that go for pure thrills, style and game design (generally those which would fall into easy genre works like action of horror, etc). This also leaves out really extended works like RPG's, so episodic and sprawling in nature they're absolutely no fit for being condensed into a film, or purely tactical stuff like RTS or puzzle gaming, etc.

So I just watched the new Pirates trailer because I havent seen anything about it yet and I'll probably get dragged to the theatre to see it..... Where all the creatures at??? Like, one skeleton and a handful of Mermaids (and they better be more than a handful if they're the only creatures, if you get my meaning)

The creatures are mermaids that are scary underwater and gorgeous above water or something like that, and voodoo zombies.

JT, what movie do you most admire for its quantity or quality of creatures?
