I was thinking more along the lines of the Michael Bay Battleship movie.

The sad part about this story to me is that this means that somewhere out there exists multiple people whole thought this was a good idea and were willing to put money towards making it happen. I am having a hard time comprehending that.

I think it's probably just that a few idiots wanted to make a running gag amongst gamers (http://www.theverge.com/2014/9/30/6872435/tetris-the-movie-is-really-real-from-mortal-kombat-film-studio) a reality.

I love that you attributed that movie to him because it is like the garbage he makes. Sadly, some other jagbag made it.

Haha! Whoops, I just assumed it was him because it looked so shitty. Oh well, close enough.

Reminds me of the time I confused Michael Cera and Jesse Eisenberg.

Understandable mix up on that one.

Thomas Middleditch can probably be thrown in there soon with the way he's typecasted (same meek, daresay 'wussy' disposition).

Figured I'd just drop this here to say that PA predicted this like 10 years ago

The idea of a "Tetris movie" has been a running joke for a while.  There are some fan-made trailers out there:

I'm not sure if these are more or less funny now that they're actually doing it...

Yeah, even I made a Tetris intro thingy a long long time ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odd3gKBVL28

(The flickering is because the computer (Mac G3) couldn't render all those plane surface moving with mathematics to appear 3D correctly. Funny enough, nowadays, my cellphone could probably do a better job at rendering this)

Meanwhile there's a Quiji movie out soon.

All I want now is for some shmuck to attempt to make a movie based off the board game Risk, and do the game proper justice.

That means a 10 hour feature consisting entirely of an ever increasing number of troops charging across various desolate fields, cutting to some talking heads between battles and repeating until the view zooms out to the global scale where Australia looks like its covered in goddamn ants swarming up to Asia to start yet another land war and to make the final bid to crush the poor sap stuck in China of all places.

Sums it up pretty perfectly, haha! It can be the next LotR series. All of them 3-4 hours long. A ragtag team of soldiers tries to stop a godlike entity that is conquering the world, and their fate rests in the hand of one soldier who possesses magic dice.

I've actually had a game of risk that lasted less than 5 hours. Although you could actually probably make a good movie out of Risk. You would just have to have more betrayals than in Pirates of the Caribbean 3 to make it genuine. :p

Actually, Quiji turned out to be a half-decent horror movie. I was properly cropped out, and I guess that's the point.

Wait, you were in Quiji and got cut out by the editors when they tightened the focus on all the shots you were in as far away from you as they could?

Man, it sucks that they couldn't even squeeze you in with pan and scan. Lol.
