Two nights ago, I and a few friends had a showing of a film called Blubberella. This film is apparently a scene for scene parody of Bloody Rayne 3: The Third Reich..Directed by Uwe Boll. Also, this movie too was written by Uwe Boll.

In fact, the cast of Blood Rayne 3 is also in this movie. Also, these movies were apparently filmed side by side. Also, there's a scene in it where Blubberella has a dream that she goes on a date with Hitler. Who was portrayed by Uwe Boll.


I'm suprised the good doctor is still making movies. Seems that no matter how many people put him down, he just tries harder next time (and then beats the snot out of them).

I felt that the Silent Hill film was one to the better attempts.
It was atmospheric without any of the typical lighting problems and a decent soundtrack. At times they deferred to using sound effects over music with you don't see done much anymore. Certainly not in animes anyway. The song at the credits came from the opening of SH3 with is one of the better games too.
It had a decent cast. Everyone seemed like a likely character from the game, but without seeming superficial.
They didn't spam the film with monsters from every game and used some of the best known monsters too; Prism Head for example. Its wasn't purely about the use of monsters either. They just made The Darkness a hellish place to be. When in purgatory a far greater enemy had to be faced; the religious order of witch hunters.
The overall plot was (mostly) its own too. They didn't try to open recreate any of the known SH games at the time. They took some of the fan elements and mixed them evenly into their own story.
I'd certainly recommend it over others out there.

Except that the film was based on the Original Silent Hill, which had nothing to do with a puritan cult or the Christian god/devil...or pyramid head.

Also, the main character being changed from male to female was pointless....I don't mind giving characters a sex change as long as there is a good reason to do so(such as the case of making Asakawa female in Ringu). In the case of changing Harry Mason to Rose Dasilva...there was not.

Also, there were way too many people in Silent Hill in the films than in the games, it ruined the feeling of isolation that the SH 1-3 did so well, plus the film had no subtlety or psychological horror at all, which is something that the game trilogy(I only count 1-3) is well-known for.

It may have had a ton of potential, but in my opinion, the Silent Hill movie is hardly a good attempt.

I remember the reading that the reason Sean Bean had that stupid subplot going on was because without him, he'd be the only male character in the entire movie.

I know this is the opposite way around, but I really enjoyed Timothy Olyphant's performance in the Hitman movie, a great film that I had to watch twice to understand fully! ^-^
