I got nothing for ya... I was raised to not do things I wouldn't want done to myself. And that's why anal sex is off the agenda.

gonna suck, the big thing is that games are interactive by nature meaning you have more say and attachment to characters and their predicaments, with movies its like watching a twitch play without comments from the channel or the player, the feeling and immersion is gone.

plus a movie about a puzzle game that threw in story as an afterthought (portal). yeah nah.

Could go either way, provided you remember that it is a movie and not a game. Same thing happens with movies vs books.

I don't really think it could go either way - the story in the game revolves around the gameplay. It's not like BioShock where the story and gameplay sit somewhat at odds with each other, and both would divorced from the material.

Would it be better to say then that it is a Portal themed movie then? There have already been a bunch of similarish ones.

I just don't get what could be possibly interesting about it in movie form. It works damn well as a game - isn't that enough?

No they have to make more money!

Skeptical hat is on firmly for this. Games are awesome of course, there are probably ways to make an interesting movie but who is going to be the protagonist? Is it going to be some kind of prequel? Do we really need it? :/
