Tomb Raider sucked. Bad story, bad action, BAD STORY.

Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, contrary to its name, is NOT A VIDEO GAME MOVIE!

The Resident Evil Trilogy? Seriously? With Nemesis wandering around in his platform boots and bobble-head masked shouting "SPLEH!" at everyone he sees? This series barely has anything to do with Resident Evil, it's terrible.

Silent Hill was *almost* good. With a little more effort, it could have been wothwhile.

Max Payne: "video games make questionable source material." Do they? No. Hollywood doesn't take video games seriously, so they RUIN the source material. Max Payne the film was absolute crap in terms of storytelling compared to the games. And does anyone remember there being any Valkyries in the game? Nope. Oh look at that, it has nothing to do with the source material, and everything to do with bad filmmaking.
