With the up-coming "Max Payne" movie coming out, I think I should make My top four games that I think they should make. I'm only doing four because there's not many games that have good storys that could lend themselves to a movie. Okay, let's get started!
In case you don't know what the plot of the "Ratchet & Clank" series, I'll tell you. It's a space comedy about a mechanic called "Ratchet"(He's a member of a fictional race known as the "Lombax") & His robot side kick, clank, stopping villains from taking over the universe & crap like that. The only reason why I kept playing them is because of the comedy, witch means it could be a great comedy movie. It could be the "Buckaroo Banzai" of our time ( & yes, I mean that as a good thing)! Besides, even if it bombs at the box office, it's defiantly got the makings of an instant cult classic ( if you know Me well, you should know that I'm a sucker for cult classics).
The ONLY reason why I kept playing the "Jak & Daxter" games is the story. The story's to complicated to explain. See plot description here.
2:"Uncharted- Drake's Fortune" The plot of "Uncharted" is about Nathan Drake ( yes, he's a decedent of Sir Francis Drake) looking for the treasure of Sir Francis Drake & along the way, the main characters meet up with pirates who also want the treasure. In other words, it's pretty much a modern day "Indiana Jones". This could make a good movie because it doesn't just have action, it has well written characters that could save it from being another crappy video game movie.
1: "Sly Cooper- The Motion Picture" In 2002, Sucker Punch won the game award for "Best New Game Character" for Sly Cooper. What's "Sly Cooper"? I'll tell you. Born into a family of thieves, the Cooper clan keep there secrets of stealing in ancient book, the thievius raccoonus. When Sly turns eight years old, a gang attacks & kills his parents. The gang then takes the thievius racconus. Sly is then sent to an orphanage where he meets his soon-to-be life long friends, Bentley & Murray. Ten years later, Sly & his friends decide to take back the thievius raccoonus & avenge his family's death all while avoiding interpol. In other words, it would be a children's film with mild crime thriller elements, pretty original. The main reason it should be made into movie is because of the well written characters. Sucker Punch has a gift for well written characters.
If You're a gamer & You're into movies, odds are You've heard about the up-coming "Max Payne" movie. Although, I'm a bit skeptical, I'll tell You why.
When I saw the trailer for "Max Payne", My first reaction was "Why? Why are they making, of all things, a "Max Payne" movie?" Was there a voting poll on a video game blog begging for the game have it's own big-screen adaptation? Don't get Me wrong, "Max Payne" is well known by gamers, but it's not pop cultural icon. Did some studio executives really just look at games like "Halo", "Grand Theft Auto", "Assassin's Creed" & " Metal Gear Solid" & decide to just make a movie out a game with a cult following?
Another problem I have is that the film doesn't seem to explain why Max is hell-bent on killing criminals. Just watch the trailer here. If You've just seen the trailer, I'll point out some other reasons why I'm skeptical. First, I don't like the idea of skipping the back story & character development & just starting the action scenes instantly. It's like filmmakers think every one knows who Max Payne is & the movie should just skip any thing important. Like I said earlier, "a game with a cult following". In other words, since most people haven't heard of "Max Pane", the filmmakers should explain the character's back story. In case You don't know the plot of "Max Payne", I'll tell You the basic premise. Max Payne is an ex-cop who's family is brutally murdered & He is framed. He then decides to kill the mobsters responsible & sets out for revenge against the murderers & all criminals in He comes across. I know, it's stock & has been used in many movies, but that would be a good thing because it would be a video game movie playing like....a movie!Another problem is that there's super-natural plot elements in it. (First) as far as I know, the game didn't have super-natural themes. (& second)That & super-natural movies & crime thriller movies don't go well together. What are the super- natural themes? I'll tell You. Apparently, all hell brakes loose(literally) & some flying monsters that look like the Moth man show up attacking people.
Although, on the bright side, Mark Wahlberg is staring in the film as the title character. He's not a big name actor, but He's at least a known actor witch is a good sign for video game movies. It's a good thing because some one who's an experienced actor is willing to star in it. That, & He looks like Max Payne.
See what I mean?
In closing, this movie might be good, But I'm not totally sure. That's about it, see ya.
The film was confirmed at this year's Comic Con. The remake of the Paul VerhoevenClassic will be directed by Darren Aronofsky. Now, I was hoping for a "ROBOCOP 4", but this should be satisfy Me. Expect a 2010 release. A few weeks before the film comes out, You should also expect My reviews on the first three films. It probably won't be better than the first film, but I'm still gonna see it. -See article at "G4.com" here
"Sly 3" is one of the most over rated games I have ever played & You are going to find out why....
STORY The story in this game bull s#*t. It takes place a year after "Sly 2", Bentley is now in wheel chair due to the event in "Sly 2". But the real story is about Sly trying to find the Cooper vault, where His has been storing there loot. Although, "Dr.M" has already made a fortress surrounding the vault & now Sly needs to get His team back together as well getting new team members.Not only does the story in game have a bad plot, it has poorly developt characters. I don't like these characters, they over power the playability of Sly. Not to mention, these guys are annoying. You'll be better off reading "Sly Cooper" internet fan fiction!
GAME PLAY The game play SEEMS to play like "Sly 2", but it's dropped the complex mission structure of the second game & goes for more of a platformer. You may be wondering if that's a bad thing, it is. Lets not forget the graphics, at first they look good, but they go to waste because of the mediocre art design. While the first two games had a film noir look to them, this one is so bright & colorful that makes "The Yellow Submarine" look dark & depressing. One of the worst missions in the game is "Operation: wedding Crasher", in this mission You have to use an RC car to sneak past security lights, why can't Sly just sneak through ? Sly's supposed to sneak around, He may as well in this mission. And problem with the game is that You get to play as Carmelita fox, yes, You get to play as a cop in a thief game. That's like if in "GTA", You got play as a cop.... FANS WOULD BE PISSED BEYOND BELIEF!
ENDING (Spoilers!!!!) I'll tell You the ending (or,You could watch the ending down below).Apparently, Sly is injured in a fight with Dr.M, then Carmelita comes & defeats Dr.M. But , whoops! Sly lost His memory from the injurries! So Carmelita tells Sly that He's "Constable Cooper", Her partner. So the moral is if You are a thief, but You loose You're memories, they won't press charges against You. Why? Because Sly Cooper says it's OKAY!
HITS It's fun
MISSES Lame story Lame new characters Voice acting feels phoned in Bland art design & graphics Mediocre music Difficulty switches from easy to impossible constantly
OVER ALL:Despite all I said, I don't hate this game, I'm just nit picking. Besides, this game already has enough praise. I give "Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves" a "Good Seven out of Ten".
You should NEVER have a crappy ending to a great film series, that's why they should make "Lethal Weapon 5".
4:"Mad Max 4:Fury Road" This movie is being made, but it's just on the list because I can't wait for it. Only problem, Mel Gibson won't star in it.
3:"inFAMOUS" Much like "Mad Max 4", this is just on the list because I can't wait for it to come out.
2:"Indiana Jones 5" The new "Indiana Jones" was better than "Temple of Doom", but I think it wasn't a good way to end the series.Although, George Lucas said He'll make a fifth film depending on the success of the most recent film.
Like I said,"NEVER end a great series with a crappy ending". Sadly, "Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves" did not listen to this credo (You can find the ending on You- tube). One time, I found a wikipedia article about an upcoming game,"Sly 4: Power of Thieves". I didn't care how stupid the title sounded, I was excited to the point to where I was jumping up & down, then I learned it was a hoax. Although, the guys at Sucker Punch said that they would make a forth game eventually , so there's hope yet.
I hope You enjoyed this list, I'm the G-Man & have great day!
Every year, We all go to the movies to enjoy ourselves , but I have found three movies Not to see this year.
3: "Star Wars:The Clone Wars". It's animated & it's a spin off on the crappy "Star Wars " prequel trilogy. Do I need to say any thing else about why not to see it?
2: "The Day The Earth Stood Still". Not only it's a remake of a classic, but it doesn't even have anti-war themes....or at least that's what I'm told. I know thatthe first film is irrelevant, But the film makers couldn't put in anti-war themes based on the war we are in now?
1: "Disaster Movie". Do I need to say why not to see it?!? It's from the guys who made "Meet the Spartans", that's why not to see it!Don't expect My review on this film!!!!
