question of the day: What movie would you like to see made into a videogame?

I stole today’s QOTD from John Armstrong of World Gaming Executives (a networking site for the business side of videogames), who asked it on LinkedIn:

What movie would you like to see made into a videogame?

We often talk about games being turned into movies, but rarely the other way around. So: What movie milieu would you like to interact with on a gaming level? What movies feature settings and action that would be appropriate to a game? Are there movies that don’t seem obviously like videogames that would work anyway?

I’d love to see how a film like Brazil would translate into a gaming environment: it would look amazing, and the gameplay could be fascinating. And what about a comedy such as Raising Arizona? Could a game work in which the humor is at least as important as the action? Are we at the point yet at which a player could be asked to interact with game characters on a level that requires wit as well as weaponry? Or will we have to wait for holodeck games for that?

(If you have a suggestion for a QOTD, feel free to email me. Responses to this QOTD sent by email will be ignored; please post your responses here.)
