Neil Blomkamp, the out-of-left-field director whose big-screen debut, District 9, has earned him a place in Hollywood as a competent and capable man behind the camera has gone on record with the LA Times to state the idea of a District 9 videogame "stresses me out a little bit because games based on movies rarely work. And movies based on games don't work - I don't know what's up with that?".

When asked why, if he doesn't think movies based on games can work, he was going to direct a Halo movie Blomkamp confidently states because he thinks he's the man who could make it work.

He also talks about his love of videogames and that certain sequences in the movie were shot with videogame perspectives in-mind.

All movie games and game movies suck, unless I make them and make money off them.

Yeah, totally, that's exactly why.

Sarcasm detector doesn't work well on the interwebs, but it went well off at this line. He's doing it for the cold hard cash and good on him.

If he was doing it for the cash he would have accepted the massive budget hollywood offers for his next movie? DERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

I agree with you, but only for those games which are supposed to be released at the same time as the movie.

production schedule for this can be drawn out a little bit longer because the movie has already been released- and they will have more creative license.

bottom line is, a game based on this narrative foundation would be okay, but based specifically on events from the movie would be epic fail

maybe a prequel that only focuses on the aliens and how they ended up at Earth - maybe some huge battle with another species or something

Hitman worked as a movie.
Posted 04:37pm 12/1/10
That's debatable..
Posted 04:45pm 12/1/10
Wolverine worked as a game based on a movie based on a cartoon based on a comic.

Lots of points of failure but it was still a win.

I ended up skipping through most of it, I'm glad I didn't see it at the movies else I'd have walked out.

District 9 had more plot holes than Avatar.
Posted 08:37pm 12/1/10
I found some plot holes when watching the little mermaid. I'll discuss this more tomorrow after a second screening.
Posted 07:01pm 14/1/10
