Bad Uwe Boll movies based on games, will they ever stop? Probably not as long as he continues to buy up the rights to make movies based on games that no one else would make a movie of otherwise. We have to face it, House of the Dead, Bloodrayne, and Dungeon Siege, while all fun games in their own right, were not exactly the stories that most would think of as movie worthy material. The newest game movie that he plans on adding to his resume will be based on the PC game series POSTAL, from publisher Running With Scissors.
Perhaps there is enough market just for those curious enough as to what certain games would look like on film, no matter how bad they might turn out to be. There are certainly plenty among us who also just enjoy going to see a flick to see just how hilariously bad a bad movie can get. How long will it be before people’s curiosity will run out?
I suppose this just goes to illustrate the sad state of affairs the game industry is in. By that I mean, even bad movies based on games, that may only earn 1 out of 5 stars, seem to consistently be more profitable than your average good 3 or 4 out of 5 star game.
