  1. I remember when they announced “live-action pokemon” and than later they came up with this…..

    Just imagine a real pokemon movie with battle and shit. Hollywood would probally ruin it anyway looking at most blockbusters , but just imagine a Pokemon movie rated 8+ on IMDB , wich are well made movies 90% of the time. I enjoy most movies rated between 5-8 aswell but these kind of franchises deserve the best. I hope we get a Zelda trilogy one day on par with Lord of the rings or even topping it. For me Lord of the rings sets the bar for fantasy movies , even Hobbit could not top it..

    1. I think its a good idea to keep this a relatively small-scale comedy because the big epics based on video games always seem to end up really corny.

      That said, I too believe that a Zelda trilogy could be very good. Just the music alone would make it.

    This movie is either going to be enjoyable because it’s one of the greatest things ever or because it’s one of the worst things ever. Yeah. Even terrible movies can be enjoyable.
