Most likely... Alot of companies seem to be doing that alot lately just to squeeze every penny out of their fans and caving to the little "tween" fuckers... Ugh... I hate todays youth. Resident Evil and Lord of the Rings are two examples.

I didn't play RE 5, so... what was wrong with it? (Or are you thinking of the Wii one[s]?)

RE 4 / 5, they completely abandoned Umbrella and the Virus for ... an ancient plague-parasite that apparently some freaky little midget has kept hidden under his castle for centuries. Resident Evil isn't Resident Evil without zombies. Those shitty "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" bullshit Plagas aren't zombies. And, of course, the shitty movies. I would have had more fun sitting in a tub of rusty, open scissors than watching those pieces of crap.

What was wrong with Lord of the Rings? I thought they were pretty good for a book-to-movie, cause I usually hate book-to-movies.

RE on the otherhand, ya, that was horrible. Also, the reason I didn't even play 4 and 5 is because they got rid of the zombies.

Meh, RE 4/5 had a shitty story, but the actual gameplay was more fun, though they also sacrificed most of what made the franchise even somewhat scary to accomplish it, so it really depends on what you prefer. TBH, I have never liked the RE story much, and didn't find the 0-3 very scary, so I actually prefered 4, though I can see why someone who liked 0-3 wouldn't.

And yeah, the RE movies sucked XD

Lord of the Rings just had so many things changed that didn't really need to be changed / made even less sense after being changed. Such as Arwen summoning the river outside Imladris and the Elves showing up at Helm's Deep, just two examples.

And I didn't find 0, 2, 3, and CV scary (when I first played 1 it was creepy as hell), but they were fun and I liked the story. True, 4 had better gameplay, but the story was crap. I hated the gameplay and story in 5.

Well, ya, but most book movies do that(some even worse). For a book-to-movie, it was pretty good.

Only played a demo of RE 5, and I was kind of turned off by the fact it was essentially a recycled RE 4, only seemed even easier due to Co-op.

I agree with ghost, many movies do that. Take Eragon for example, the book was amazing, but the movie failed hard core. There are just some things you need to do to make movies make more sence to the non reading populace of america (aka 99% ish)

I know some things need to change for a book to be made into a movie. But the two examples I listed had no impact what so ever on the plot or direction of the movie, they were put in because the pussy writers / drector caved to popular demand. Elves at Helm's Deep made no sense (at the beginning of the first movie thye even talk about the "Last Alliance of Elf and Man", the last time armies of Men and Elves would ever fight side by side). Not to mention it was Erkenbrand and Gandalf (not Eomer) that went to gather the Rohirrim (who were on foot, not mounted like in the movie), it was the Huorns that completely wrecked the Uruk-hai army, and the Uruk-hai weren't "stunned by Gandalf's glowy stick". Uruk-hai didn't fear bright lights like other Orcs (the Dunlendings feared Gandalf because he was a wizard and had a reputation in Dunland, also not because of his "glowy stick").

And I'm a huge Tolkien-nerd, so I'll stop now before I type ten pages on the things changed..

Changer, to be fair, the books weren't that great either... (Really generic story, and only average writing, not to mention the 2nd one was really lame.)


And hey, let's not look at just the bad sides... Some books do end up making it into good movies. Take for example, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Yeah, I pulled out HP, what now?). That movie managed to balance keeping true to the book while not overloading it with pointless details or adding/substracting from the story to make it more 'Hollywood-y' (Something the other HP movies have sadly not managed to do...).

Another good example of a good book-to-movie film was Fight Club, which, while it's not completely true to the book (ending was changed, for one), it still managed to capture the essence of the book AND be a pretty badass movie.

Stephen King's "The Shining" is another good example. While I'm not sure how true it is to the book, it managed to capture the feel of Stephen King's works, and made a pretty awesome movie.

"Princess Bride" is another good one.


I think you get my point...



That being said, even if it does turn out to be a piece of shit, we can at least take solace in the fact that it can't be worse than the Dragon Ball Z movie...

Yeah, the HP movies weren't bad. They're splitting the last into two movies, I heard.. Whole lot of camping in that book.

Anyway, I don't know if any of you read comics (the scope of my nerd-hood becoming clear yet?), but I heard they were going to make "Walking Dead" (a comic series about ... you guessed it, zombies) into either a movie or a TV show ... and that'd be fucking awesome. Anyone who hasn't heard of it (even if you don't normally read comics), I recommend you pick it up (the hardcovers cover entire story arcs, instead of having to buy each comic). Oh, and Ryan Reynolds is going to do Wade Wilson in another (hopefully not as shitty) Deadpool movie (X-Men Origins totally screwed the character). Hoping that'll be good... I love Deadpool.
