Gonna see a movie today…”Rampage”. Thing is, this is a movie that has a twist…not in the plot or story, mind you, but in it’s backstory…this is a VIDEO GAME movie.
Was SO weirded out when Dave Annis told me about this movie…because the game “Rampage” is so unadaptable to movie form in my opinion, and such an OLD game to boot! “Rampage” the game was published in 1986 by Bally Midway…and was a classic “quarter-muncher” (that term meaning, the game’s difficulty was spiked against the player so you had to spend more money to play it) from the arcade halls…I put MANY a quarter into Rampage to destroy buildings as George, Lizzie or Ralph…and all three of those characrters are in the movie.
Not going to see Oscar-worthy acting by The Rock or any of the other cast members, I’m sure…just a “turn your higher brain functions off and enjoy” kinda movie. Just so ODD that Hollywood picked THIS game out for a movie…
Anyway…here’s some Ashley Lane.
