Favorite "Video Game Movie" ?

[ Edited ]
27 replies 623 views Edited Apr 12, 2013

Sure, a lot of horrible movies have been made, that are based on a franchise, but there are still some gems out there too.

Even if nobody else liked it, maybe you did?

 

So, what are your top 5 favorite movies, that are either based on a video game, or about video games?

 

 

My Top 5:

1. The Wizard (1989)

2. Brainscan (1994)

3. The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters (2007)

4. Mortal Kombat (1995)

5. Cloak & Dagger (1984)

 

Runners Up:

"WarGames" (1983)

"Silent Hill" (2006)

 

 

 

 

"You must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not then they are enemies to be feared."

Brainscan!?  Edward Furlong, really?  I am doubtful of your taste in movies now HorrorGod.Smiley WinkSmiley LOL

 

1. Tron

2. The Last Starfigther

3. Silent Hill

4. Tron Legacy (Could of been better, but I liked it none the less)

5. War Games (Original, despite Matthew Broderick Smiley LOL)  Plus Ally Sheedy was actually good looking in it.

6. Cloak & Dagger (Dabney Coleman, you gotta love it!)

7. Hitman (Olga Kurylenko is HOT!)

8.Wing Commander

9. Gamer (Decent Action Movie)

10. Resident Evil(s) - Love me some Mila J.

 

The Wizard gets no love from me.  It made it seem like the NES Glove would be a new revolution in Gaming, and it was CRAP!  That and Fred Savage can stick it!Smiley LOL

lol, yeah, I loved "Brainscan."

And you're one to talk about taste.. I ask for Top 5, and you give me a Top 10, with plenty of stinkers on it. (IMO) Smiley Tongue

And honestly, I completely forgot about "War Games" and "Cloak & Dagger."

I'd remove "Silent Hill" and gladly put either one of those on my list.

I can't think of many off the top of my head. But some of you have pointed out my favorites.

 

  1. WarGames 
  2. Tron
  3. Silent Hill
  4. Tron Legacy

That's it. I remember seeing The King of Kong: Fistfull of Quarters on G4 a couple times. Wasn't it a documentary?
