Guitar Hero Movie a Possibility



Director Brett Ratner (director of the Rush Hour movies and X-Men: The Last Stand) thinks that making a movie based off of the Guitar Hero game series would be a good idea. No, really. He says he’s currently trying to convince Activision to “let” him make it. Here’s his pitch for the story: “It could be about a kid from a small town who dreams of being a rock star and he wins the ‘Guitar Hero’ competition. One of these dreams-[come-true] kind of concepts.” Oh boy.

This is just what we need more of, right? Looks like we’re getting more “hip” movies about video games that actually degrade rather than uplift the cultural status of the medium. Besides, I find the prospect of making a Guitar Hero movie entertaining would be near-impossible. I’d much prefer something like a doc/mockumentary about professional Starcraft players. Why? Because Guitar Hero is just about reflexes, dexterity, and memory; there’s none of the excitement of improvisation like in an RTS or FPS. Either way I’m curious to see how this project would turn out.

    This seems like a very bad idea…maybe if they did it like a mocumentary about the Donkey Kong elitist that would make it better.
