now if they made a movie called "Spectre Challenger" ...that would be sexy good
Sounds like your going to have to fight me for those tickets Matt
" yep, next up we'll have a movie based on pong... seriously, wtf are these people smoking man?You were way nicer than me. I was just going to say, 'You're a bad person, and no one will ever love you."
Look, don't take this the wrong way, but you really have to watch more movies, because if that garbage is what you consider one of the best you've watched, you clearly haven't watched much. "
" Okay, Asteroids is a stupid, stupid thing to base a movie on, but Transformers 2 is actually one of my favourite movies, so it's not entirely out of the question that the Asteroids movie will be fun to watch, if not exactly cinematic gold. "
It could be decent. The main requirement for any good Asteroids product is that the ship disappears off one side of the screen, then reappears on the other. I'm optimistic that this exciting aspect of the rich, deep, bounteous, plentiful Asteroids lore can be successfully translated to a movie.
"How do you get a mythology?"
Christ, he sounds like a 4th grader.
The people who are making this movie think you are fucking retarded. There are great, talented script-writers out there, and fantastic novels to base a movie on. They choose something like this because they think you are a fucking idiot.
Wyatt Earp, seen here speaking with di Bonaventura in regards to this movie, had this to say:
I think it's been accepted as fact that the Asteroids movie will be better then the original Star Wars trilogy.
" Done. Sold. Day one. Here's my $20. I need two tickets, in case the first one catches on fire, because this movie sounds too hot. "
laughed my ass off.
I am going to see this movie 3 times.
This is going to be a absolutely gorgeous train wreck.
This sounds like the best video game movie ever. First this, then they make a pong movie.
Screw Asteroids, I want a Tetris movie.
Kind of feels like it's SO stupid, it might actually work... in a stupid kind of way, will defenitely be keeping an eye on the development of this one. ;)
Sounds like di Bonaventura is ramping up to give Uwe Boll a run for his money.
What I would really like to see is a Pitfall! movie.
"Sir, I know how to beat them!"
"I know how to beat them! You run to the left!"
"You're crazy! That can't possibly work!"
I would pay for a 90 minute quick look of Asteroids, in a movie theater.
However, I'm really waiting for Hollywood to adapt Tetris into a movie.
That actually sounds awesome.
They are comparing an arcade game to the single largest franchise on earth, lawl.
When Hollywood runs out of good movie ideas, the moon will be covered in blood and fire will rain down from the heavens...
"And by with me, I mean behind me."
That's what she said.
Why the hell did they have to pay Activision to make a movie about asteroids? Is the success of the movie really so dependent on being able to actually call it Asteroids?
Where is my fucking Joust movie.
asteroids barely even registers as a video game.
Oh wow this is... I don't even know what to say.
Ge Hype for Asteroids!
The only way if there's an asteroids movie would be if it's 90 minutes of gameplay on the original asteroids with the occasional drunken voice over of blowing up the ufos or getting blown up.
Side effects of consuming Surströmming may include: fits of madness.
O, izzit Jungler Fever?
" This only bodes well for the success of my Jungler Movie screenplay. "
" So, when's the Custer's Revenge movie coming out? How about Mr. Driller? "You know goddamn well a Mr. Driller movie would be amazing.
One of the best articles I've read in a while, Mr. Kessler. You had me laughing out loud throughout. Of course, you'll have to thank Mr. di Bonaventura for his part in the funfair.
Is it going to be amazing or amazing?
My father worked The Belt... 'Till the day it took his life...
Matt I look forward to you posting more editorials for this site. Keep up the good work sir. Awesome quicklook btw.
" Can't be any worse than the forthcoming Stretch Armstrong or fucking magic 8-ball movie. *groan* "Stretch Armstrong movie? Fuck yeah!
Perhaps the most disgusting part about this entire thing is that this sounds like a movie that would appeal to the general public. BILLIONS UPON BILLIONS TO BE MADE ON THIS CONCEPT.
"Someone kill me now. "
Can't be any worse than the forthcoming Stretch Armstrong or fucking magic 8-ball movie. *groan*
I'm pretty sure you could just extend out the post-Vietnam bit from Forrest Gump and get a pong film.Heh, indeed, that would be a humongous stretch though ;P
" I have every bit of confidence this movie could be better than the entire new trilogy. "OH SNAP!
Will it include vector graphics?
I hope the Mayan calender is actually right, because we're spent as a civilization.
I'm holding out for Asteroids 2, where it actually takes elements from Galaxian.
