Re: Too far?

The Spyro movie is probably going to be subpar at best. Some games work well for movies and some just don't. I guess the main factors would be that the game would have to have a good storyline as well as having a substantial amount of audience and publicity.

Hey, the Tomb Raider movies did an awesome job. Angelina Jolie couldn't have made Lara sexier.

BTW, The aniamtion company Velvet Octopus HAVE been confirmed as the makers for the new movie and they DO exist (though the movies they've made in the past haven't been great). Trust me, I'm an aniamtion student.

The powerpoint is here: http://velvetoctopus.com/spyro/index.htm

Do your RESEARCH, people.


None of these links seem to work for me. I went to the VelvetOctopus links that Spyrorocks and Scarabbug provided (sorry Spyrorocks I don’t have the ‘1337 HTML Haxxoring skillz’ that you speak of, I’m just not that clever a cookie) and it just came up with a page saying ‘for more information please contact [email protected]us.com’. And the link that Stormy provided said ‘404 page not found’ or something like that. Dammit, it’s like they want leave us in the dark or something!

Re: Too far?

Yeah, they'll upload something for a little while and then take it down. I don't really understand why they put them there in the first place if they're not there to stay, but the website seems to be there for people in the industry rather than the fans. It's still too early for a public website to appear, I think.

The LoS series did NOT ruin the fandom. Nor would a Spyro movie ruin it. The fans are doing that themselves by their constant whining and complaining about small, idiotic things. It's the Sonic fandom all over again.

Re: Too far?

This would be a good kid movie, but I think they should just stick to the games. But I guess none of us will really know if it's good or not till it comes out, right?

Re: Too far?

The games were like films O_o so I think that's enough. More cutsecens than gameplay...

Re: Too far?

Well, It's about time they have an official movie, you know....
For all those games they made, they could have  made a movie earlier....

(I know it's too far, but its worth it for Spyro's fans!)

Re: Too far?

I'm really divided over it....would I like to see a movie...yes I would...but like Ratchet said way back in this topic...or somebody said anyways....the games are practically like a movie anyways. So in a way I just want them to keep creating games.

I'm just really thinking that they would totally butcher just about any movie version of these games...because the staff they have assigned to it so far does not really give me any comfort.

Too much...I'm leaning towards yes. Keep it as a game where it belongs...once you start dealing with actual movies and such you are playing with fire. They better hope for their sake that they don't drive this whole thing into the ground.

Re: Too far?

I'd prefer it if they'd stay with the games but that's just me. <_<
But who knows...maybe a Spyro movie would be pretty cool...

Just have to wait and see. *sigh*

Re: Too far?

I am really split over this, I am almost certain the movie will be rubbish, but I just want it to be good.

Games can be made into movies quite successful, such as final fantasy 7 (strange how the FINAL fantasy franchise has more or less the most games outside football). Advent children, although not a blockbuster, is a intresting action movie.

However, I just think that it couldn't work on Spyro, because final fantasy allows you to bond with characters through lots of cutscenes and a ridiculously complicated, and brilliant plot. Spyro bonds through continued battles, and, boring as that sounds, it worked. Spyro therefore is designed to become your friend, through being you.

Which is why the movie has a 97% chance of failing by my estimate, but for what it's worth I will be holding onto that 3% like there's no tomorrow.

Please don't flame me for my opinion as it will get you nowhere; thank you. smile

i'll comment on this in a moment.

Well Stormy, i put it like this. if you are gonna have a smash hit video game series, why not take it to the next level? this will make the series even more popular! making a tv series out of it would be going to far.

now back to the bolded statement. NO ONE is going to flame you for you opinion. that's what this site is for. stating your opinion. yah' dig?

Re: Too far?

I agree with Sammy. A movie is good, but like they said, if they had made it into a TV series that would be going too far.

I say as long as they keep the movie close to the games, then I'll be happy. Even if it stinks I'm going to see it. Good gosh, I haven't been to the theaters since Lilo & Stitch came out in like 2002.

Re: Too far?

No offence, but making a movie on a video game sounds...nerdy, or geeky however you Americans call it...

Is it going to be a kids movie like villain and stuff or is it going to be serious. If it's more of a kids movie they should base it on the older 3 spyro games.

Pokemon was an anime at around the same time it became a game, so it makes sense to have Pokemon movies.... Spyro, though... I dunno, it's just different. First they change him into this nerdy little combat thing, then they make him into a movie? Just... no.

Re: Too far?

Err, first of all, this is kind of an old thread. Second, no, I'm not a big TLoS fan, actually. Please don't yell at people/type in all capitals; it's rude.
