Need for Speed was so bad.

Thats rough. Too bad Jessie Pinkmans movie career just died.

FLAWLESS VICTORY

MORTAL KOMBAT.....nothing else even comes close.

At least as far as the live-action Hollywood adaptations go, honorable shout-out to the awesome 1994 Japanese SFII: ANIMATED MOVIE. "Uh, they're all pretty terrible" sums up most of the rest of them for me more or less.

Each time I come across the claim that SILENT HILL is somehow cinematic video game movie gold, I wish to refute it by calling it out as "fool's gold". It may look deceptively impressive visually and smell nice on the

Yeah, "Advent Children" was far better. Also off the list was "The King of Fighters" which was entertaining....not good, but entertaining.

Street Fighter killed Raul Julia

Alone in the Dark was abysmal
Bloodrayne was ok
Tekken, Silent Hill, Postal, DOA, King of Fighters, MK1, RE, Doom, Dungeon Siege and Tomb Raider were good enough for multiple viewings. I hope Kombat will continue to follow along the web series.

Did you just say Postal was good enough for multiple viewings??

I'm inclined not to take you seriously anymore.

Definitely Mortal Kombat. The essence of the film is intact, the fight scenes are entertaining and choreographed well, moves rather quickly, has a likable cast, and Goro was done w/o CGI and offers some funny moments. I also think Silent Hill is a close second and love the look the film was given.

Talking more so FIghting games but...

To this day Mortal Kombat is the ONLY movie that actually captures its source material and doesn't make it look stupid or childish, well in terms of Fighting games at least. I wish MK could have some out before Street Fighter so that they could of been like "Now THATS how you do it" and we'd have a sweet SF movie as well. I mean i love Van Damme but Guile as the main character with short red hair? Fuck off.

Honorable mention for Dead or Alive. It was campy as hell but it seemed self aware of

Its really not, maybe live action yes but the manga version of Street Fighter blows mortal kombat outa the water for accuracy to the source material.

Amen to that.

Looks like it wasn't taking Japanese anime into account, and there have been a LOT of anime game adaptations but yeah STREET FIGHTER II: THE ANIMATED MOVIE stands tall. Obviously, the best film adaptation of SFII and rivals the MK movie. I'm not sure which I could say I like better, but I actually would love to see a MK anime movie done in that style...

I thought Doom was a pretty solid movie. Definately one of the best game to film adaptations i have seen. Like resident evil 2 and 3 aswell.

House Of The Dead is the worst film I've ever watched in a cinema. Genuinely awful stuff. Caught its sequel on dvd and that wasn't too bad.
Thought they did a pretty decent job of Silent Hill, so that gets my vote.

I think Prince of Persia is a very fun movie and Alfred Molina totally stole the show. Gylenhall gave an alright performance as The Prince and visually they got a lot of things right. What didn't really clicked on me was the weak conclusion of the third act which felt like a cheat because we didn't get to have a satisfying 'final boss' showdown. Silent Hill was awesome, again they nailed the visuals and the creepy atmosphere but they kind of wasted Sean Bean's character in the movie. The sequel

Silent Hill was awesome, again they nailed the visuals and the creepy atmosphere but they kind of wasted Sean Bean's character in the movie. The sequel was an atrocity, as they were trying way too hard to please the fans. Mortal Kombat was by no means a great movie (Bridgette Wilson couldn't even punch straight and it shows, though she does have nice legs), but it did capture the spirit of the game and more, as it managed to be not just an adaptation of Mortal Kombat but also a nice homage to the old martial arts movie that inspired the game. The sequel sucked donkey balls with cheap visual effects that couldn't even hold a candle to the visual effects in Hercules: The Legendary Journey.

While Mortal Kombat is fun cheese, Silent Hill is my favorite. While it has deep flaws, there's also some great things about it. Love the design and atmosphere and the monsters.

Dead or Alive

I know it's corny, but it's got a lot of action and the chicks are smokin'. Resident Evil would be my second choice.

If they didn't have the b*tch princess I would have thought it was a great movie overall. Then again people love Leela from Futurama so I don't see how this would effect those people's opinions on this movie.

There is some everlasting charm the first Mortal Kombat keeps giving me so that one I will say was still my fav.
Funny enough, I watched Doom earlier today, yes I have the DVD, and I won't say it's a great movie, but I do enjoy it.
Same goes with Resident Evil 1 and 2. Not great films, but enjoyable.
Silent Hill I thought was well done and there is a piece of my that really enjoys DOA too. Again, not great movies, but enjoyable.
Mortal Kombat 1 is just one of those movies where it was

Maybe they were being ironic? Silent Hill is my vote; a solid, underrated flick and very true to the game.

Silent Hill

It didn't care about the rating and it delivered. I liked that movie a lot because it respected the foundation of the series but changed up the story a bit. They also used some of the kick ass original music.

One of the best video game turned films IMHO. They hit all the marks of the first game while making it appealing to first timers.

What about Street Fighter Van Damme?
Guile: "I'm the repo man. Your ass is six months overdue."
Ken: "Rye-you! Hang a you, amigo!"
But the classic so bad it's awesome quote still goes to Raul Julia:
"The day that General Bison graced your village is the single most important day in your life. But to me, it was Tuesday."
