Yep, thats right people, they're making an "asteroid movie, by "asteroid" i'm reffering to that really old game, you know, where you're a little white triangle framw which is supposed to be a ship, and you shoot the rocks flying around you?
Yeah, that one.

Why, or how would anyone would make a movie about this is beyond me, just goes to show you how people in the T.v. and movie business have indeed ran out of any original ideas and are now resorting mainly on just other already made things...

So... yeah, T.v. sucks and movies suck now and have gone down the drain, good thing we still have the internet and videogames. :D

Well, movies based on good games suck, what would a movie based on a really old game be like? All I can think of is epic fail. My faith in humanity has dropped a bit more today.

If something like this lowers your faith in humanity, I'm intrigued to see how little you know for something like this to even make a dent O_o.

Meh, all I needed to hear was "Asteroids movie", really.

Besides, my faith has only dropped a bit. Like, dos points.

What if there is a twist, like the asteroids turn out to be transformers, that turn into space invaders, then the asteroid pilot has to go down and defend against the invaders and then the asteroid pilot is actually pacman, and the space invaders are ghosts.

That could work...

So, like, it's just a movie about arcade games in general? Interesting concept, but I don't think I'd want to see a Pac-Man movie...

I'm sorry, but I have a hard time seeing this do worse than the Mario movie. This isn't a new low.
