I always wondered if they could do a good adaptation of Stormbringer...

The Scorpion, a french comic book, would be a great live action film :D

For disaster movies, I'd go for Stephen Baxter's sci-fi called "Moonseed" (the whole planet earth gets destroyed! Woot!)

What else what else...

Hey, if you want to do Blacksad animated, you have to do Skydoll ;)

I'd like a good alternate history movie. Maybe "Guns of the South" by Turtledove.

And if Miyazaki could do another film...
That's all I could come up with for now.

I thought of the most amazing new idea:

A background story for the Hamburglar. Why does he want to steal all those damn hamburgers, and why does he wear the conspicuous prison uniform?

I'd want:

-G.I.Joe (live action... i hear they're in the works but I don't want a crappy movie)

-Street Fighter (live action... DONE RIGHT!!)

-Gargoyles (trad. animation -- i love this cartoon and it would look so cool with the best animators in the biz)

-Rape of Nanking

-Star Wars prequels 2 and 3 (directed by Ron Howard and Steven Spielberg like George Lucas initially wanted (they both declined saying that they were HIS films)

-Masters of the Universe (live action, again.. done RIGHT)
My name is Dave.

I think Street Fighter has been done as right as it ever will. It's a game with no real storyline, no real setting, and goofy characters with unrealistic fighting styles. Oh, but as I type this I am reminded of a scene in Jackie Chan's City Hunter that used live action representations of the Street Fighter characters and managed to accurately reproduce the feel of the game, you should check it out.

But as for movies that should be made, (and I'm not saying this just for contraversy's sake) but a GOOD version of Lord of the Rings would be nice, perhaps one that manages to reproduce the themes and feel of the book at least somewhat accurately.

Isn't there a Street Fighter anime movie? I don't think Street Fighter would work as well in live action. There's just too many goofy moves.
Masters of the Universe
Wasn't John Woo rumored to be making this? :lol:

They should make an Underdog movie, Super Chicken movie, Tom Slick movie, if just to hear their theme songs. :wink:

Underdog? Lame. Hong Kong Phooey: The Movie, now that would have an awesome theme song.

Jeff Smith's Bone needs to be made into a movie. A triology of movies actually.[/i]

Ditto on Bone.
Daisy Kutter as a movie would be a lot of fun.
I'd like to see a non-conspiracy movie on Jack Ruby.
Mathilda (a sequel to Luc Besson's Léon)

"Rendevouz With Rama". There was supposed to be a David Fincher directed film coming, with Morgan Freeman starring in it, but no news recently.

"Wicked". I'm sure there will be a movie version of the musical, and that will be great, but I was a huge fan of the book before the musical was ever made.

"The Wizard of Oz". Still waiting for a really cool live action version that's faithful to Baum's books (but I love the MGM film and thought "Return to Oz" captured the feel pretty well).

"Dreadstar". I'm probably one of 10 people who loved Jim Starlin's sci-fi series, and it will never happen, but I'd sure like to see it as an animated series.

DavidHopkins! What the heck are YOU doin' here?

How about a new version of Catch 22?
It would probably have to be about 3 hours long to do the book justice but there you go.

War of the Worlds, only this time set in the right country and during the right time period.

I would love to see a movie based on Nick Bantock's Capolan book series.

The series themselves are art pieces in themselves, which deal a lot with mail art and letters between two characters, but I could see a really inventive movie/story spurring out of the invented country of Capolan.

Maybe in an animated Miyazaki style? That would be beautiful.

I'm a little late to party but here goes. I completely agree with a no to Calvin and Hobbes for the exact reasons already mentioned.

I think a biography of Walt Disney is a great idea. I became interested in him after I reading Bill Peets Autobiography.

The Hobbit

Post by galenrandir » Wed Apr 12, 2006 3:22 pm

The Hobbit. Only one that was well directed, well cast, and very well written. Something with the very essence that made me fall in love with the book in the first place.

with Andy Serkis as Gollum, of course. :)
