The "This Needs a Movie!" Thread.

I'm not sure if this is rec room/lounge material so, if it is, I apologize. 

What books, comics, shows, etc. do you think need their own silver screen debut. Personally, I believe Marv Wolfman's 1983 run of Vigilante, which, yes, came into being after the horrible movie by the same name that same year needs a movie. Adrian Chase, or Vigilante, is a very deep character and with the whole "dark heroes" trend I think a Vigilante movie could be a huge success.

Also, The Elder Scrolls series needs to be recognized on the big screen. If the right writers are hired, an epic rivaled only by Lord of the Rings could emerge.

What do you guys think? What do you want to see ar the movies, if you had your choice?

I understand the feeling. But at least Legend of Zelda may be getting a Netflix show.

Professor Layton needs a Sherlock style animated mystery. Bad.

(Silence peasant technically episodes of Sherlock can be considered movies.)

For the record, there is a Professor Layton animated film.

Star Fox. Just Star Fox. (Not sure if it would work though)...

i could see a CGI-animated Star Fox movie, actually, like something in the same vein as The Clone Wars or Star Wars Rebels

if you can get past how utterly generic the story would be, anyway

Ermm... anime. Story telling of stuff we don't see in the game. The backstage of the past and present of each character solely and as a whole. Nailed it!!!

I think now that film companies are trying too hard to make stories for kid/teen movies "deep", a generic story might be a refresher.

I had heard Peter Jackson had wanted to do Naomi Novik's His Majesty's Dragon series, not sure if he's still doing that, but Lord do I hope so. Teen Titans, like the actual style from the comics could do very well, but the original series actually did a good job on that, though, so wouldn't put that high on the list, really.

 

Warhammer: 40k, they have amazing novels I hear, could do very well with a movie if done right. As long as it isn't about the Ultramarines. Space Wolves or Blood Angels could be cool, perhaps Grey Knights as well, though it would be hard to do them well since they're kinda hard to be rooting for sometimes, as they'll civilians and allied Imperial Guard to remain as big a secret as possible, but still, incorruptible Psyker Space Marines wielding Nemesis force weapons battling daemonic entities from the Warp would be pretty sweet.

No. NNNOOOOOOOO. Ok, if anything in anime, a show, NOT A MOVIE. My personal preference would be a 3D animated movie that not only focuses on the events that lead up to Star Fox 64 (or even SFZ. Chances are, it could be the same.), but also focuses on Fox and Co.'s life before the Lylat Wars, and before the modern Star Fox Team was formed, similar to your concept, but just the history, letting future gamers decide the present (Branching pathways, Mission Complete or Mission Accomplished, you already know.) 

As for what else needs a movie? Hmmm... The Mii Characters, starring one who finds him/herself lost in the Nintendo Universe, and must get back to his/her own... without breaking the 4th wall so many times.

Yep, Star Fox. I'll make that happen one day, and it will be splendiferous.

Also Elder Scrolls, that would be great.

Straight up trashy, but the Zola saga of 2k15  sounds like it'd make a killer movie. There's just something so...classically perfect about it.

Read the amazingness in it's original form here

(Looks at date) :neutral: ... did Kyubey actually leave this thread because o' that?

You know who else might be good for a movie? Pitfall. Focus on The Mayan Adventure, with Harry's son.

      It's coming, like it or not, ready or not, it's coming this December.
      Personally I like the Force Awakens. While it was not a perfect film, I felt it was a fun film. This I hope atleast matches or exceeds. I just want it to be enjoyable compared to Rouge One. ... The movie... Ew...
       
      So anyway, this thread has to happens. What do you dudes think? It can't be as bad as... You know...

      As evidenced by my profile picture, quote, and actions, I love spy fiction movies and television shows. James Bond being my favorite but also movie series such as the Bourne franchise, the Mission: Impossible franchise, The November Man, and and T.V. series such as The Blacklist and Burn Notice. Any other spy fiction lovers here?

      Go to the link and scroll down. Tons of new Star Fox Zero renders/screens. Unfortunately, they appear to have been heavily compressed by Nintendo themselves, so they aren't as nice looking as we might like.

      Hello everyone! I've been a hardcore Star Fox fan since I was two years old. I use to play the 64 game all the time (frankly, now I wish I grew up with the SNES game instead) and since screenwriting is one of my biggest passions, I decided to pursue my own film adaptation of the Star Fox franchise.
       
      The reason I bring this up is that I need opinions from fellow Star Fox fans on this website. I plan to take elements mainly from the SNES game, and I want to ask a few things of you guys:
       
      What were your favorite parts of the original game? Most epic moments? What did you feel when playing the game?
        What tone do you think I should go with, considering the source material? (I think Iron Man (2008) would be a good reference.)
        What kind of message or idea could be communicated really well through this universe and these characters?
        I would like a few opinions from you guys. It's not usually a good idea to get other people's opinions before your own, but since I respect the source material as a lot of other people do as well, I think a few outside voices wouldn't hurt. Thank you for your time.

      If you haven't seen Prometheus, you should. If you have and you understand it, okay, you're smarter than me
       
         But for those of us who saw it and are wondering 'what the the hell was that?' and the Bluray pack wasn't enough, come and post your questions and together may find the answers.
       
       
       
       
       
         Personally, I like complex films and TV shows. Exploring the unknown, boldly going where no one has gone before. But it seems that movies today just aren't exciting and mysterious as they used to be. Star Wars Prequel trilogy just was not Star Wars to me. It lacked some things. Just like the Transformer trilogy, they were good films but editing and dialog were amiss.
