I hate video game movies.

#52 Posted by scott_harrigan (9 posts) -

Movies based on story driven games do not work, so how can they make a film out of a racing game and expect it to be good. Unless the need for speed series has an amazing story that no one ever talks about. They have decent writers, but I cannot really see anything coming of this. The only good racing movie I have ever seen was Fast Five and I am completely convinced that, Fast Five being good was a miracle.

This movie will be great, provided it gets to release, because things don't have to be good to have value. I don't need quality storytelling in an action movie. They have the creative staff to make a movie I can watch without thinking about it & simply enjoy ridiculous stunts. The value of that should not be underestimated.

Lets face it, Jeff...

<--- Razor isn't going to be a part of it. Lets just lower our expectations so nobody gets hurt.

I know it's 2012 and not 2001, but a stupid, ridiculous car movie is NOT COMPLETE without fucking millions of pointless Nu Metal tracks.

If they replace them with anything, they have failed.

Dreamworks makes movies that are not animated? Or will this be animated as well.

Steven Spielberg movies are DreamWorks, so Saving Private Ryan is DreamWorks.

So what you are effectively saying is that steven spielberg will direct the new Need For Speed movie? That will surely make it too big to fail. I can't wait to see Razor Callahan use a juiced up Honda Civic as a landing craft to fight germans off the coast of Normandy.

Ed Norton as Razor Callahan.

#76 Posted by brocool (701 posts) -

Seriously I hope this razor Callahan thing is a joke. It was funny at first. There's no fucking way any sane person would pay money to see anything that guy did or will ever do. He belongs on YouTube with the rest of the generic, incapable loud mouths.

#77 Posted by ObsideonDarman (650 posts) -

God damn that scene from TORQUE. So god damn stupid yet so god damned brilliant in a weird way.

Razor Callahan will rise again and jack your car!

For the love of god, please do a fucking tie-in game for this movie. The thought alone is making convulse with laughter right now.

I would prefer it if they can get some big beat era stuff, like Fluke, Leftfield and Prodigy, circa 1997-99 because that stuff is actually good for real, and also used to be in these kinds of movies.

Get Keanu Reeves for this! Oh, wait..

I think I'll just stick to the Need for Speed games.
