Temple Run

temple-run-repetitive

Video games have been a part of popular culture for decades now, and whenever anything is a part of popular culture, you can bet that Hollywood is going to try to piggyback off of its joojoo in some way. Because of this, the history of movies that were adapted from video game properties is a long and rich one, wherein just about every game you can think of that’s reached a critical mass of popularity has been turned into a movie. That’s what makes it so depressing that we still haven’t really gotten a video game movie that’s been received warmly enough to legitimize the genre and shut up everyone who keeps saying that video games are not art, or that they at least make for really crappy source material for movies. What’s even more depressing though is the news THR recently broke that Temple Run, a game that’s become popular on iOS and Android mobile devices, is the next property set up to inspire its own big screen feature over at Warner Bros. Making a movie out of a game like this just proves that Hollywood still has no clue which types of video games could inspire a film version that audiences would accept and which absolutely won’t.
