In my opinion, it's the franchises that are chosen. Just because a franchise is popular on a counsel DOESN'T mean it'll be a good movie. Doom...REALLY, Street Fighter...REALLY, and now Prince of Persia? Even Mortal Kombat is spreading it pretty thin(hold ur flames on that one). Not to mention the absolute embarassment that was Mario. Why not Metal Gear Solid? Why not Zelda? Even Castlevania(vampires always sell) would make a better flick. Either the producers live in an alternate universe where shits worth its weight in gold, or they habitually smoke the crack. I dunno... what do yall think?
