So I was just thinking about which video game movies or adaptions of other things should be made and who should be involved. So first lets talk about...

Half-Life

So who should play Gordan Freeman in a Half-Life movie? My first choice would have to be:

Hugh Laurie

Hugh Laurie
Hugh Laurie

Hugh played House on the show "House M.D." and he just looks like Gordan Freeman, but my second choice that just popped in my head is...

Bryan Cranston

Bryan Cranston
Bryan Cranston

Don't ask why I just see him as the role I just do plus he is an amazing actor. So our next video game movie is...

Halo

Halo is an amazing story and it can be a fantastic movie and anybody can play Master Chief and Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn was an amazing Halo movie and they knew what they were doing and get the people who made Forward Unto Dawn and pair them up with a very visual director who I think could do a great job on the movie...Zack Snyder.

Now I know alot of people want James Cameron to do the movie but I think Zack Snyder paired up with the team who made Forward Unto Dawn would be perfect for a Halo movie and it would also be visually stunning. So onto our next video game movie...

Mass Effect

Now a Mass Effect movie could go anyway as the game is all about choice and they could do a male or female Shepard for the movie. I think that they should make Commander Shepard a female to make it different from the male always being the hero so here is my choice to play Commander Shepard in the Mass Effect movie:

Olivia Thirlby

Olivia Thirlby has shown that she can handle herself in a fight and works good with guns in the 2012 movie Dredd and she is a very pretty and talented actress. This movie could also give her the credit she deserves and she is not very well known but should be.

If you are wondering who I choose to direct this movie, you know I might sound stupid for using this name twice in the list but Zack Snyder since he is very visual and can deliver very good dialogue and can capture elements from whatever the movie is adapting from, and he shows that in his 2009 movie Watchmen. Next video game movie...

Saints Row

I know what you are thinking "What?!?!? That is the worst idea I ever heard! What about GTA?" and let me say this: The movie would be fun. Saints Row The Third and Saints Row 4 were yes very stupid games but they were hilarious and fun to play but Saints Row 2 has a perfect balance between crazy and serious and its a very good game with a good story. So a Saints Row movie could go two ways, it could be totally random and silly or be slightly silly but all together serious, and I want the fun part. It would be nice have a breath of fresh air to have a silly movie of Saints Row in the style of the third and fourth games, so many movies are more serious and dark now and days and if this movie came along it would be hilarious and just all around fun to watch and enjoy. When Saints Row IV came out I was so excited, every game now has to be very serious or just be a game filled with second graders saying that they "Banged my mom last night" because I killed them in the game, and Saints Row IV was fun, silly, hilarious, and just awesome. A Saints Row movie in the form of style like Saints Row 2 would be good but it would be typical so just do a fun action packed movie. I don't care who is in it or who is directing it but as long as its a great fun time I would totally buy a ticket. Next movie that isn't a video game but is a book adaptation is...

Crank

We have so many book adaptations of teenage stories that are all romantic or stuff like The Hunger Games now that we need something like this. Before you ask, No this is not related to the Jason Statham movies. Crank is filled with drugs and sex and its very well written and it would be a great movie trilogy if they did the whole trilogy books the first being "Crank" then "Glass" then finally "Fallout" so the movie titles would be like this "Crank", "Glass: Crank Part 2", then "Fallout: Crank Part 3" and it would be a nice trilogy. Speaking of book that need movies...

The Rowan

The Rowan is a very good book about a future race of humans that have telekinesis that travel through space! The main character's name is Rowan, and my real first name is Rowan and I am a male, the reason I address that is because Rowan in this book is a girl and lots of people think its a girls name. Speaking of female characters who deserve their own movies or at least need an appearance in one I know one...

Harley Quinn

Harley has never been in a live-action Batman movie and she deserves to be! Harley Quinn is my favorite Batman character and I love this character alot, and she should get her own movie. I imagine that if Harley Quinn did get her own movie the movie would be called something like "Harley" or if she was in a Joker movie why not "Joker's Favor" which was the first appearance of Harley Quinn and is a nice episode of the Batman: The Animated Series. My choice to play this amazing character is:

Tara Strong

Tara Strong voiced Harley Quinn in Batman:Arkham City and Injustice:Gods Among Us and that voice is brilliant and she would make a perfect live-action Harley Quinn, just look at her, just give her pigtails, some makeup and boom, Harley Quinn.

Let me know what you think in the comments below and tell me what you think they should make an adaption of!
