because it's either too different to the source material to appease fans or makes too many references and silly inclusions to be a good movie.>>454104151>>454108057
There was x2 Silent Hill movies and neither is very good.
Silent Hill (2006) gets everything about the game wrong but is a somewhat decent to watch film (about witch burning for some reason) that you can watch with normal people and they won't have any problems.
It's sub-par but it's fine.
Silent Hill Revelations is retarded schlock that is both more like the games and less like the games at the same time.
The plot is a hodge-podge, it looks cheap, it's full of schlock and is just full of terrible decisions that make very little sense.
For example one popular reviewer pointed out the doll spider thing that turns teenagers into plastic so they can become part of it, saying "you just know this is some enemy from the game".
It's not, obviously to us.
But the film maker made a decision so bad people just assume it's a consequence of the game.
tl,dr I believe you can make a good movie adaptation of a video game, but you can't go into it thinking "I'm making a video game movie" much like you don't try to make "a book movie".
Adapt, show respect to the source but adapt.
