I was trying to forget them <shudder>
In fact can anyone think of a good game-to-film?
Dead or Alive, it wasn't particularly good per say but it was in many ways the perfect game-to-film. DoA is hot chicks in very little clothing, the movie was hot chicks in very little clothing.
Street Fighter I actually kinda liked, Raul Julia was amazing, but I've also watched Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li so perhaps I appreciate how much worse it could get.
Of course we have King of Fighters which got absolutely everything wrong, and the Uwe Boll movies need no real explination.
So as for a game film that is actually pretty good, well the only one I can think of is Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie. They manage to fit in all the fighters at the time (Super Street Fighter II Turbo cast) and the fight between Chun-Li and Vega is absolutely amazing. It was so good that it basically wrote the plot for Street Fighter games from then on with the Alpha series borrowing heavily from it.

I'd forgotten about that one, I suppose it would be ok though given that Jordan Mechner was involved with the writing of that one.
