I had the Song of Storms stuck in my head for three MONTHS...damn!


Now that I think of it, LoZ would make an AWESOME live action movie.

Not so certain about that. What makes for a great game may not necessarily make for a great movie. Zelda, as awesome a game as it is, is a bit light in the plot department. Some major changes would need to be made in order for it to work as a movie, changes that would be decried by all fans of the series. That would alienate the core fan base, and along with the niche status of most game movies would spell doom at the box-office. With each passing year and each sub-par game-to-film adaptation that comes along, I'm more and more convinced that the two mediums are separate for a reason, and should stay that way. Let's let games be games, and movies be movies.

my hypothesis is this avery good movie produces a horrible @$$ game
example:iron man was a horrible ass game
but every bad movie has the potential for a very good game
example:chronicles of riddik was pretty good seeing as how the movie sucked.

but back to zelda: I haz da TrIfOrCe!!!!11!!1!1!

I don't think any major changes would need to be made. It's got the perfect set up for a movie. There's a clearly defined good guy and bad guy, and it also has the trued and true "good guy saves the princess from bad guy" thing going for it. I think if you keep that as a constant, everything else could be filled in with aspects from all the different games ( or several of the most popluar ones), you could come out with something great.

the real question is...if there was a Zelda movie, who do you think should play Link????

I dont know someone like Austin Butler they would need to be young 16-20 and they would need blonde hair and not be exactly the most heroic or athletic looking since in most zelda games of late its usually a farm boy or slacker that ends up being the hero.
