10 Grand Theft Auto Remastered Trilogy Memes That Are Too Funny

10 Grand Theft Auto Remastered Trilogy Memes That Are Too Funny
Rockstar Games' output during the sixth console generation was nothing short of legendary; games like Bully, Manhunt, and the Midnight Club series were all standouts on the Xbox and PlayStation 2. However, Grand Theft Auto was the franchise that truly stole the show. Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City, and San Andreas were pioneers of the open-world sandbox genre, and fans have been clamoring for remasters of these classic titles for over a decade.

Unfortunately, Rockstar would see fit to outsource the development of these remasters to the unproven Grove Street Games, and the final result was the utterly meme-worthy Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition.

What GTA 6 Should Learn From Vice City

What GTA 6 Should Learn From Vice City
The recently released Grand Theft Auto: Definitive Edition remasters may be a bit of a disaster, but even in a mostly broken form, it’s hard not to appreciate the brilliance of GTA: Vice City.

Released in October 2002 (only a year after the revolutionary GTA 3), Vice City hit a generation of gamers like a lighting bolt. Even though Vice City was developed and released in a shockingly short amount of time (especially by modern GTA development timeline standards) it felt like such an incredible leap forward in so many ways. There are times when that game’s reputation almost elevates the experience above the quality of the game itself.

Yet, when you look back at GTA: Vice City, it’s easy enough to spot the lessons Rockstar should learn from that game when developing GTA 6.

GTA Vice City Made (Nearly) Every Character Memorable

Netflix to Acquire Scanline VFX, Effects Studio That Has Worked on ‘Stranger Things,’ ‘Cowboy Bebop,’ ‘Eternals’ and More

Netflix to Acquire Scanline VFX, Effects Studio That Has Worked on ‘Stranger Things,’ ‘Cowboy Bebop,’ ‘Eternals’ and More
Netflix is snapping up premiere visual-effects house Scanline VFX, announcing a deal to acquire the company that has done work on Netflix originals like “Stranger Things” as well as tentpole movies for Marvel, DC and others.

Financial terms of the pact were not disclosed. The deal is expected to close in the first quarter of 2022, subject to regulatory approvals and other usual closing conditions.

Netflix said it will operate Scanline VFX as a standalone business that will continue to work with a variety of clients. Founded in 1989 in Munich, Scanline VFX also operates locations in Los Angeles, London, Vancouver, Montreal, Stuttgart and Seoul.

It’s the second major M&a deal in the VFX space this month, after game-development software vendor Unity said it will buy Peter Jackson’s Weta Digital technology and tools business for $1.625 billion.

For Netflix, Scanline VFX has provided effects for “Stranger Things 3” — and is

GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition: Worst Bugs, Glitches, and Problems So Far

GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition: Worst Bugs, Glitches, and Problems So Far
Many of us assumed that the seemingly inevitable remasters of GTA 3, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas would eventually be guaranteed (and welcome) hits, but the release of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition has already been met with scorn and ridicule from franchise fans who are stunned by these remasters’ many, many problems.

Maybe it shouldn’t be a surprise to see these remasters fall quite so hard on their face given some of the botched remasters and new releases we’ve seen in recent years, but it is truly astonishing to witness just how bad these games really are on a purely technical level. There is no excuse for how these remasters turned out, but I’m darkly eager to hear an explanation for one of the year’s most disappointing releases.

It would take us days to round up every problem with these remasters,

‘Red Notice’ Review: Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson, and Gal Gadot Star in Netflix’s Breezy Mega-Budget Caper

‘Red Notice’ Review: Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson, and Gal Gadot Star in Netflix’s Breezy Mega-Budget Caper
Historically speaking, “Red Notice” should be unwatchable. For starters, Netflix’s previous fall blockbusters have been very bad. Not just bad in the way that movies are bad, but bad in the way that war crimes are bad — they shouldn’t have been reviewed by critics so much as tried at the Hague. These are films so bad that Joe Rogan should have spent an episode of his podcast spreading batshit conspiracy theories about how they escaped from the Netflix content labs. These are films so bad that you half expect to see Forrest Gump stumbling through their crowd shots as part of his accidental journey through America’s defining crises.

But at least they were directed by people with strong artistic sensibilities. “Red Notice,” on the other hand, is the brainchild of Rawson Marshall Thurber, a once-promising comedy director who was more fun to resent for his what if

Village Roadshow Pictures Chairman & CEO Bruce Berman Departing After Two Decades-Plus Run
Village Roadshow Pictures chairman and CEO Bruce Berman is exiting after 24 years at the production finance studio.

What franchises and big event pics hasn’t Berman been involved with? During his ride with Vrp he’s made several Warner Bros tentpoles including The Matrix franchise, multi-Oscar winner Mad Max: Fury Road, and Joker, the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time worldwide at $1.07 billion, among many others. Recently, Vrp co-bankrolled the next Matrix movie, The Matrix: Resurrections, which will hit theaters and HBO Max in December. Berman is also executive producing the Mad Max spinoff Furiosa, primed to be the biggest Australian production ever starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.

In total to date, the 101 films produced between Village and Warner Bros have grossed $18.5 billion worldwide, earning 19 Oscars.

The producer and executive will continue to look for new opportunities in the evolving theatrical-streaming atmosphere.

San Andreas 2 Probably Isn't Happening Anymore Says Alexandra Daddario
It looks like The Rock's dance card just got a little less full. That is because San Andreas 2, a sequel to the hit 2015 disaster movie, is no longer happening. At least according to one of the movie's stars, Alexandra Daddario, who starred alongside Dwayne Johnson in the flick. It will likely join the giant heap of Hollywood sequels that never came to be.

Alexandra Daddario is currently promoting the release of Die In a Gunfight. During a recent interview, she was asked about the possible San Andreas sequel which, at least at one point, was indeed in development at Warner Bros. For those hoping to see some more disaster movie goodness of this sort, don't hold your breath. Here's what Alexandra Daddario had to say about it.

Dwayne Johnson Starring in Holiday Action-Adventure ‘Red One’ For Amazon Studios

Dwayne Johnson Starring in Holiday Action-Adventure ‘Red One’ For Amazon Studios
Dwayne Johnson will star in “Red One” for Amazon Studios, the streaming service announced Monday. The film will reunite Johnson with “Fast and Furious” scribe Chris Morgan — the pair recently collaborated on the hit spinoff “Hobbs & Shaw.”

The deal for the film treatment, which comes after a highly competitive bidding situation, is another sign that Amazon is focused on creating more populist fare. Its interest in fielding more broadly entertaining films comes as the streaming wars continue to heat up, with new entrants like HBO Max, Paramount Plus, and Disney Plus elbowing into the space.

The deal is a statement-making moment for Amazon Studios and its chief Jennifer Salke, who has made a big push to acquire splashier properties. Amazon initially focused on awards contenders such as “Manchester by the Sea” and indie fare like “Brad’s Status” and “Wiener-Dog.” After Salke came on board in 2018, the company has augmented those

Jennifer Lopez to Star in Sci-Fi Film ‘Atlas’ at Netflix for Director Brad Peyton
After signing a first look film and TV deal with Netflix, Jennifer Lopez has set yet another project with the streamer, this time a science fiction film called “Atlas” that “San Andreas” filmmaker Brad Peyton will direct.

Jennifer Lopez Starring in Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Atlas’ for Netflix
Jennifer Lopez is humanity’s last hope.

Well, at least that’s the premise of “Atlas,” a sci-fi thriller set to star the “Jenny From the Block” singer and “Hustlers” actress. Brad Peyton, who orchestrated on-screen carnage in “Rampage” and “San Andreas,” will direct the film. “Atlas” unfolds in a bleak-sounding future where an AI soldier has determined the only way to end war is to end humanity. Obviously, this extremist approach to achieving a pacifist paradise doesn’t go down so well with Lopez, who finds herself teaming up with, as the official logline puts it: “the one thing she fears most — another AI.” Dun dun dun!

“Having the chance to direct Jennifer in the title role of this movie is a dream come true, as I know she’ll bring the incredible strength, depth and authenticity we’ve all come to admire from her work,” Peyton said.

Each consecutive game developed by Rockstar seems to be more ambitious and influential than the last. The developer’s latest game, Red Dead Redemption 2, is one of the most beautiful looking open-world games of all time, and before, that Grand Theft Auto V changed online gaming forever. But it’s impossible to ignore what laid the foundation for those games. Vice City and San Andreas changed everything.

The PS2 and Xbox games weren’t exactly footnotes in the developer’s canon of games, but given that so much time has passed, they aren’t dusted off all that often anymore. However, older games are constantly getting remastered, whether it’s Tony Hawk or Crash Bandicoot, and both these games deserve a remaster for very different reasons.
