    I like the discussion on movies that should have had a game based on them !! Here's some of my personal suggestions, some maybe good, some maybe a bit on the crazy side :)

    **********************

    The Shining - spend your time solving the "mystery" of the Overlook Hotel while avoiding Jack who chases you with an axe, ending in the absolutely EPIC chase thru the garden hedge maze in the snow

    Slapshot - perhaps the most unorthodox of all sports-based movies !! Play in the "Iron League" and take on teams with such players as Tim "Doctor Hook" McKraken, Ogie Olgelthorpe, and the unbelievable Hanson Brothers, while trying to win the Cup championship

    Smoke and the Bandit - if ever a chase-based movie deserved it's own film this is the one. Control either "The Bandit" or "The Snowman"...or play as a 2-player team !! Or, play as "Sheriff Bufurd T Justice". Compete against your friends online and see who prevails...the bootleggers or the law.

    UltraViolet - programming the physics of this game would be a new challenge for modern era programmers considering the gravity-based device that allows the user to defy gravity in a number of ways. Add to that an arsenal of self-contained weaponry that has to be seen to be believed, a hologram-generator AND speed the likes of which has to be seen to be believed and you have the makings for a kick-ass adventure-based title

    Ender's Game - not sure which aspect of the film I enjoy more...the zero-gravity games or the final all-out assault against the overwhelming forces of the enemy. Either way these make for awesome gaming challenges

    Hunger Games - if properly designed...multiple pre-programmed arenas, 12-24 or more opponents, unusual "events" that the game maker throws at you to keep you on your toes, and the try-out to impress the sponsors to get in-game aides when you are down and out, this could have a lot of potential for modern-day programmers to try their hands in designing
