    Do you think a PROFESSIONAL movie should be made? If so, on what game?

    Have you seen what Hollywood has done to past attempts at game-based movies?

    Lol street fighter, Super Mario Bros...

    But unlike these games, a movie based on OoT or TP might actually be good- if made by the right people who don't fuck up storylines like the one guy did to TLA.

    And in video game based movies- Hollywood ain't no professional. :P
    Nintendo needs their own film company.

    In case you haven't noticed, that's partially what forums are for- to ask other peoples opinions on your ideas.

    Because seriously, no one cares, and all you're doing is clogging up the forums. And if you don't want to make a blog post, why not just make a topic in the General Off-Topic section with all of these brilliant and completely original ideas in one single post.

    Because ideas fit into categories. And unless you want to ask a mod to make an entirely new section for ideas, shut up.

    zelda was designed and developed to be a video game. once a genre is crossed the real difficulty begins, that is expressing the same feeling to a viewing audience that gamers received the first time they played a zelda title. good luck with that!

    as a movie it could work, but they would need to remove the "cute" visuals that have always graced zelda games.

    Those last two posts are great. That's the kind of response I want; none of that "go post all ur ideas somewhere else" shit. Thank you smile72 and Another World and whoever else didn't give me shit.

    Yeeeeaaahhh... Neo, calm down. No need to get your panties in a bunch because someone comes and pokes your bubble.

    There's bringing discussion, and then cluttering with useless discussion. Going on the same topic, but with a different subject (e.g., "Should a movie be made of Zelda/Metroid/Pikmin/Whatever else here), does not warrant a new topic every time. Create one topic, and go with it. If that's too much, then the suggestion of "blogs" is actually a viable one.

    Anyways, as for a Zelda movie... no. There's a certain "love" for Link not talking and just doing his yells that leaves it alone in the game world. While possible to be pulled off, it would not be well, and there's too much expectation from the community that is, well, expected, and that's not going to be met, simple as that.

    There's already been a professional movie and show made of Zelda. It's called "Yuusha Ou! Gao Gai Gar". It covers everything OoT Link would do.

    If a real Loz movie exists, will you sit down and watch it?

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Hell.
    The Hero of Time is proof to me that Zelda will never, ever have a halfway decent movie made about it.
    That movie was shit.

    No. No, no. No, no, no, no, nooooooooooooooooooo, no. Not at all.

    Really, the Legend of Zelda games don't have much in the way of story. If you were to make a feature film, there would have to be a lot of expansions made, and fans are well known for being fickle when it comes to that. Plus, it probably wouldn't be all that profitable anyway (Not many people would likely run out to see a LoZ movie, and a share of the cash made would have to be split with Nintendo) for whoever makes the movie.

    I wouldn't NEVER want to see a Zelda movie unless it was directed by Miyamoto himself!

    Prince of Persia was not bad actually.
