Gofobo's Top 10 Movies Based on Video Games!
Video games often fill in the gaps when we aren’t busy watching (or let's face it, obsessing over) movies. So, we here at gofobo totally support turning great video games into major motion pictures! Sometimes they rock, sometimes they don’t, but we don’t care - we love ‘em all. In honor of ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ (out now!) we're counting down some of our favorite video game flicks…
'Mortal Kombat' – Rumor has it, Mortal Kombat was heavily influenced by 'Enter the Dragon.' No wonder we can't get enough.
'Lara Croft: Tomb Raider' – Angelina Jolie, need we say more?
'Resident Evil' – At one point, the studio wanted to make the film PG-13. LOL
'Silent Hill' – Die-hard fans of the game will tell you, the music is awesome.
'Tron Legacy' – Daft Punk? We're sold.
'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time' – Try to ignore Jake's hair in this one, yeah?
'Hitman' – Too violent, overly sexy and sub-par acting: a masterful adaptation.
'Max Payne' – Mark Wahlberg never played the game while or before filming. WTF Mark?
'Final Fantasy: Spirit Within' – In 2001 Aki Ross was named the 87th hottest woman on Maxim's "Hot 100" List, woah.
'Doom' – I Spy the cheat codes for the game that the filmmakers hid in some scenes!
