Summer Wars is a film that I can’t help but be completely invested in every time it’s on.
I guess it’s also pretty realistic that gamers would be more up in arms about their favorite game than society at large.
I have lots of questions about OASIS’ translation of IRL abilities. Am I supposed to believe everyone knows kung fu in 2045?
On one hand, it was really exciting to see something so visually faithful to one of my favorite games of all time… but I don’t think as a movie it was particularly fun to watch.
In honor of Tomb Raider’s release later this week, we’ve caught up with 2001’s Lara Croft Tomb Raider! Dropkicks, a motorcycle-tailspin-knockout, drive-by pistol whips, bungee jump fights, screwdriver guns, and trachea chops. Where else but in a video game movie would any of this be acceptable!?!? LET US REVEL IN THE GLORY.
There’s a new Tomb Raider coming out this weekend, so John and Kelly try to figure out why video game movies generally suck. Help us out!
In honor of the new Tomb Raider movie out this week, we are watching lots of video game movies! … We might regret this decision. We think Sean Bean might also regret this decision. Silent Hill is generally received as “one of the better ones” when it comes to video game movies. Note to self: “One of the better ones” really lowers the bar for this genre.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle falls short of being a really good kids movie- I don’t see it having the longevity of other movies kids-into-adults look back on with fondness.
Welp, this movie happened. For a movie based on a sandbox franchise that is built around adventure, exploration, and the free world, it sure doesn’t feel that way.
