A thread about games based on movies here makes me wonder about the opposite. Have they made great movies from popular games? I have watched Tomb Raider series and they are interesting. But Mortal Kombat stinks.
I actually liked the Silent Hill movie. Sure the cameos were great but I think they did a good job at bringing the fictional town to life. And with all the different story arcs that the fictional setting has, I think it fit right in with the mythos of the series.
