Top 10 Movies That Need To Get Made

Posted on January 19, 2013 at 9:36 am by Christopher Ulaski

This isn’t just a list of movies that I want made. It’s a list of movies that NEED to get made!

10. ALIEN VS. PREDATOR (A GOOD ONE)

There’s plenty of awesome material to grab from the rich history of “AVP” comics, books, and video games. A film with the tone of “Alien,” the action of “Predator,” and a strong human story caught in the middle would truly make up for the setbacks of the previous attempts. I just really wanna see a Predalien take on a Queen. Is that too much to ask for?

guyver

9. A REBOOT OF THE GUYVER

For those who don’t know, “The Guyver” is a popular ultra-violent anime from Japan. The story follows Sho Fukamachi, a young man who accidentally bonds with an alien bio-booster armor and must fight against an evil global organization with many dark secrets. Two live action films were made. The first was pretty goofy and second was only slightly better (however, the fight scenes were pretty awesome). A reboot that combines the fast-paced combat of “The Raid” with the gritty tone of “Dredd” as he tears his way through Zoanoids would be the perfect way to reignite the series.

8. TROLL 3 OR TROLL 2

“Troll 2” is certainly a strong contender for worst movie ever made. Having absolutely nothing to do with the original movie, this is B-movie (possibly D movie) camp at its best. Its faults certainly make it one of the best worst movies ever made. It’s been over twelve years since our last trip to Nilbog and these vegetarian goblins are bound terrorize us sooner or later. “Oh my Godddddddd!”

transformers

7. TRANSFORMERS: WAR FOR CYBERTRON

The Michael Bay action spectacles were hit and miss depending on who you asked. I enjoyed them, but feel there were a lot of missed opportunities. No one wants to see a bunch of idiot humans running around pretending that they can actually fight giant robots. Let’s take the story back to Cybertron and have giant robots just fight giant robots. Isn’t that what we all want to see anyway?

6. IT’S A TIE: AN AWESOME GHOST RIDER, PUNISHER, DAREDEVIL, AND FANTASTIC FOUR MOVIE

  • Ghost Rider probably sold more comics based on his look alone. Nix Cage, have him fight actual demons (not the creepy dude from “American Beauty”), and have him tear up the street on his bike. Done.
  • The Punisher. He’s pissed. He has guns. He knows how to use them. This recipe should be easier than making a bowl of Cheerios. Done.
  • Daredevil deserves modern day director Ben Affleck, not Gigli-era Ben Affleck. I didn’t follow Daredevil too much, but I know he deserves a hell of a lot more than he’s gotten so far. Have him defend the innocent in court and pummel the guilty in the street. They could even introduce Iron Fist or Luke Cage. Done.
  • The Fantastic Four. What happened? You would figure that having a director with the last name of “Story” would actually produce a movie with a good story. Dr. Doom is one of the best villains in the Marvel Universe and he looks like a reject Power Ranger villain. Despite all this, I have high hopes for this new one.

5. TERMINATOR 3

I know what you’re all thinking. They already made “Terminator 3.” They already made “Terminator Salvation.” Well, I’m going to do what’s best for me and forget they exist. I don’t need Arnie saying, “talk to the hand.” I don’t want McG or McRib (whatever his name is) having anything to do with this franchise. We need an actual film that dismisses these films and finishes this trilogy right.

halo

4. HALO

This film has spent enough time in development hell. Enough is enough, just make this movie.

metroid

3. METROID

I can’t tell you how many times I played “Super Metroid” when I was a kid. The atmosphere. The action. A super-hot bounty hunter babe hunting down a galactic threat. I’m in.

gears

2. GEARS OF WAR

Just in case you’re unfamiliar with this game, check out any random clip of gameplay and you’ll see why this needs to be made. Awesome action. Check. Cheesy and hilarious dialogue. Check. Assault Rifle complete with chainsaw. Check. This movie is probably stuck somewhere in development hell, but just make it already.

1. ALIEN 5

If you ask any fan, they’ll probably tell you that the highlights of the Alien franchise were the first two films. “Alien 3” was okay, but the many well-documented factors behind the scenes resulted in an unfinished film. “Alien Resurrection” had some interesting ideas, but failed to really excite audiences. Take the story to earth or the alien’s home planet. Explore new characters and alien types. Just make anything that will wipe the memory of Prometheus from my mind.

      Alien 5 I am in…. Who should direct it?

    • Tony

      Excellent list of movies. Now we need them on the big screen.

    • Scott

      Great list. Love the Transformers part. Stupid humans. And Prometheus was pretty cool… At least I thought so. And that's a big pass on Troll. Big pass…

    • I actually enjoyed the 2003 Special Edition of Alien 3 and Prometheus. I just wish Prometheus took place on LV-426 instead of LV-223 or whatever the F***. It's almost like they forgot to throw that in there. Why go through the trouble of making everything so similar to Alien and then have it take place somewhere else? Silly silly silly.

      As for Terminator? The ending to Terminator 3 was pretty cool. I remember both Dave and I were blown away when we got to see all those missiles in the sky.

      Haha I almost forgot I liked the first AvP as well. I guess I suck. I definitely wouldn't mind watching any of these new movies though. Metroid, Halo, and Gears of War would be pretty tough to please the masses. Maybe toss out Troll 3 for a Zelda movie instead.

      Fun list!

    • I want another Punisher movie. I really liked the tone/setting of the Thomas Jane version and the over-the-top comic book action of the Ray Stevenson movie.

      Also, The Guyver would be freakin' sweet if they, you know, actually did it correctly.
