Stay Alive
« on: January 28, 2006, 12:17:23 pm »
A movie about video games, but not a movie about a particular one, which means it might not suck.

In this movie, some kids are playing a horror game called "Stay Alive," but when they die in the game, they die in real life in the same way. Looks pretty interesting, I'll probably see it.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0441796/

Any thoughts?

If it wasn't because I don't like horror movies (I don't like to get scared), I would see it.

Thats quite a cliched sort of plot device, when you think about it even Jumanji has been there before.
On a related note (lets drag this off topic!) I saw a trailer for Zathura on TV the other day "critics are calling it the best family movie of the year" duh! gee guys, dya think it might be because its still January? Duhh

I just checked it's info out. Frankie Munez is in it. (From Malcom in the Middle) Can he make the transition from comedy to horror?

Stay Alive the movie Where You Die In The Game - You Die For Real
« Reply #4 on: March 04, 2006, 04:23:50 pm »
This is intersting... I saw this movie trailer and the movie doesn't seem that great or scary but the topic seems to me a little anti video games, like if you get addicted or play to much you might get killed but, I was wondering what do u all think of the film?


Here's the trailer

most likey a pile of poo. I have problems when they show fake video games in movies, i'll see it and go "that's not real gameplay thats just CG." them i'm taken out of the movie. But I do like the idea of the game where you play online co-op with six or seven people in a horror game or any non-fps.

thought - if they make a game tie-in for this movie you would have to play a game in a game. ooooo

As well as Paris Hilton can go from reality TV to horror



This reminds of something similar. An anime named .Hack//Sign.  Long story short a kid gets permanently trapped in an MMO.  I have a friend who was actually so un-nerved by this idea that he quit playing games for quite some time. Not because he was literally scared of being trapped in a game. But the symbolism of playing a game so much you waste your youth playing while there are countless other things you can do as well. And by time you realize this you might be to old to enjoy them.

On topic that movie looks stupid to me, at least. This is an old thread, if anyone has seen it you should post your feedback.I liked Jumanji, only because I was a kid.

i agree. This movie, just from the previews, looks like it is cliche and stereotypical. Please correct me if I am wrong.

This movie looks so ridiculous, but I have to see it just for the "next-gen" game they play..and to see Frankie Muniz be an adult instead of Malcolm.

I know it will be stupid...but I have to.

Time for some people to review the rules!

THE RULES FOR GAMES AND MOVIES
-TV shows and movies based on video game most likely suck.
-Games based on movies and TV shows most likely suck.

From the trailers I've seen... I wish they didn't even make this movie. It just makes games/gamers look crappy. I really didn't like what I saw.

But I really have to see the movie first  ;D Better not judge a movie by its trailer... isn't that how the saying goes.

The only Movie from game which is any good I can think of is Res Evil. (The first one - after that I didn't like it much + I FRIGGIN HATE ZOMBIES!)

Has anyone played the new 24 game, based on the show 24? Any good? I'm not going to buy it or anything, Just asking since its anyother game from TV. I couldn't stand the show, I hate how he always does what he wants... Yeah I guess I hate a lot of things  >:(

I'm trapped in a game! how did the kid in the anime get out? BTW i'm not saying I want to get out, I have lots of gold and many friends and rare items. In the real world... I guess I'm locked up somewhere in  white jacket and a padded room. :o :o :o

Even the first resi movie was a load of crap. I scare easily and even I spent most of that movie laughing, pointing out plot errors and accurately predicting what the next plot twist or shock moment was going to be.

I agree, I was very very very dissapointed with the Resident Evil movies. They even tried to have a shoutout to gamers by having the first movie end the way the second game begins (in the street with the shotgun), oh and Nemesis...whatever. I was dissapointed. I mean they were in a sewer for a while in the first one and there was no giant spiders! ...anyway.

Someday they are going to do an amazing movie adaptation of a game. I'm hoping for a Knights of the Old Republic movie or trilogy. Halo might be really good, I have a lot of faith in Peter Jackson. FF IX would make a good CG movie. Diablo would be amazing! Starcraft would be too much like Starship Troopers, but could be good. Warcraft might work, but people would associate it with Lord of the Rings.

Someday there will be a good adaptation.

I changed my mind, the newest commercials look pretty good. The monsters actually look pretty scary at parts. I will probably see it based upon the glimpses I saw of parts.


If I were to choose a game to be turned into a movie it would be Diablo, hands down. Given some good funding, and given they keep the story in line with the games, it would be completely do-able in my eyes. They would definately need to do it with 2 main characters, much like The LOTR trilogy did, splitting back and forth between different sequences for each of the characters. Then, when it comes close to the end, have them meet in dramatic fashion, joining up to take down Meph/Baal/Diablo. It would be just 2 characters, or maybe 2 pair, to try and cover some of the classes. Like maybe Amazon/Barb and Paladin/Sorcerer.

It sounds pretty stupid. Couldnt they just bare to turn off the console or not just play? This is the kinda movie that gives us, gamers, a bad reputation.

This sounds like a rip off of the ring, but in a different medium.

Today I herd an Ad on the radio for this. No wonder no one is going to the theaters. With this and snakes on a plane, why would I want to go to the theaters

PS. what do you think the ESRB would rate this?

Are you sure Snakes on a plane isn't a comedy that's been billing itself as a Action/Horror/Thriller until people actually get word it's a comedy? It's got Kenan Thompson in it. And It's called Snakes on a plate.

They're Calling it "Snakes on a plane"! For crying out loud.  :o

For all we know it could be like "Airplane" in which there were a lot of Ussually dramatic actors making the switch to comedy (Leslie Neilson, Robert Stack, etc...)

Well, I do know what movie to see if I ever want to watch a plane with snakes on it.

It is a comedy. It's got Kenan (from Kenan & Kel and SNL) and Samuel L. Jackson, and terrorists drop a bunch of snakes on this plane to take it over. It's seriously a comedy, the clips shown from the movie were brightly colored, unlike action/horror.

Yeah I read about this in WIRED a few months ago.
