Video Killed the Movie Star?

I see a lot of movies and sometimes I wonder how some of these things got made in the first place.  There are a lot of stupid movies out there.  Did any of you "Bangkok Dangerous" starring Nicolas Cage?  It was awful.  You may remember M. Night Shyamalan made an horrible movie starring Mark Wahlberg called "The Happening". It wasn't.  "The Love Guru" with Mike Myers officially made him an out of touch comedian. I agree that it's difficult to make a good movie and now Hollywood is turning back to video games for some help.  There have been a few video games that have been made into movies like "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" with Angelina Jolie.  There are some more in the works including World of Warcraft and BioShock.  I'm really not too familiar with either game.  Sadly, my video game experience ended somewhere in the late 80's with my Atari and Intellivison. Those games were really simple, but I loved them.   My all-time favorite game was Adventure by Atari.  Do any of you remember this game?  You were literally a dot and you had to kill dragons and find a golden chalice.  Here's an action shot of you (the dot) fighting a dragon.  If you would make a kid play this today, it would probably be cruel and usual punishment because the game was so friggin' simple. Yes, the arrow is the awesome sword!  Check out the chalice on the left!!!   There would be no special effects.  The movie should look just like  the picture on the right.  I'm thinking Keanu Reeves could play the role of the dot, but it might be too much of a stretch for him to play a dot.  The dot might have too much personality. If you ever played this game and want to play it again, you are in luck! Click here to bring yourself back to that wonderfully lame game called  Adventure.
