Zelda the Movie

   I've been thinking about video game movies lately. The first video game movie I remember seeing was Super Mario Bros. and what a glorious piece of shit that was. For the last several years Hollywood has been on a remake kick, with comic books, old T.V. shows, old movies, and of course video games, I guess they just ran out of originality and have to ruin our old favorites.

   When I first heard about the Hitman movie I was pretty excited, until I saw this pussy looking dork they decided would portray Agent 47. But that's an entirely different rant. The same thing with Max Payne, these guys were supposed to be hardened killing machines, not pampered looking, mediocre at best actors. But I digress.

   On to Zelda. Since the Mario movie, Nintendo hasn't been dishing out the rights to Hollywood for their major franchises. And I am very grateful for that. There have been some fan made Zelda movie trailers, which are good for what they are. But not every video game needs to be made into a movie. Zelda isn't about epic battles and thick storylines. It's about engaging gameplay, some puzzle solving, and a fairly generic "rescue the princess" storyline. Some (all) video games just need to stay games. Please don't take a shit all over one of the most loved video game franchises of all time.

   That being said, there is no conformation of, or real plans of a Zelda movie, just a few rumors. This is more of a rant about video game movies in general.

  1. Someone did a fake Zelda trailer as an April fool's joke once. I thought it was real at first and I was not fucking amused.

    Any Zelda movie, no matter who directs it, will be shitty. I really hope they don't take a massive shit on my favorite childhood game by turning it into a cliche adventure movie.

  3. I would enjoy a Zelda movie if it was well done. However, if it's like that Mario movie then no thanks.

  6. I actually like the Resident Evil series of movies. Other then that, the rest can all go. Even though video games are starting to suffer from sequels and remakes like Hollywood, they are still way more open to new ideas and content. Movies seem to be latching onto games because of their rise as a more engaging entertainment form that potentially could be making more money then Hollywood studios.

  12. I'm going to have to agree with Astronomy Pirate on the Resident Evil movies. Those have been pretty kickass, hard to think of many other video games to movies or even vice versa that have been even decent.

    I would simply prefer them not to even touch Zelda based on prior experiences. If they could pull it off, that would certainly be epic.
