Is The Ratchet & Clank Movie Worth Your Time?
on May 03, 2016 at 07:30 PM
The Ratchet & Clank franchise has always made me think of the world of CGI animated film. When the original game debuted in 2002, many related it to a Pixar movie due to its fun characters, alien worlds, and attractive, colorful visuals. After the franchise continued to find success, an animated...
Remedy Reflects On The Disappointing 2008 Max Payne Film
on November 27, 2015 at 02:00 PM
Seven years after the release of the original Max Payne in 2001, 20th Century Fox released a film based on the property. It starred Mark Wahlburg as the titular Max Payne, Mila Kunis as Mona Sax, Beau Bridges, Ludacris, and Chris O'Donnell among other well-known actors. The film was commercially...
Casting Call – The Tetris Movie
on October 05, 2014 at 07:06 PM
From time to time, we put together casting calls for actors we would like to see playing characters in film adaptations of video games. Recently, a movie based on the Tetris license was announced , and since we already obviously know who the characters will be (the Tetrominos) we are outlining who we...
Casting Call – The Last Of Us
on March 14, 2014 at 06:30 PM
Last week, we reported on Screen Gems' upcoming adaptation of our 2013 Game of the Year, The Last of Us. We'll keep our fingers crossed and hope that it breaks out of the standard "video game movie" level of quality, but time will tell. In the meantime, here are our picks for the cast...
Asking A Paleontologist About Game Design
on December 19, 2013 at 06:30 PM
BBC Earth and Evergreen Films are releasing the animated film Walking With Dinosaurs this week, but did you know that there is also a video game based on the film? We took this opportunity to talk with paleontologist Steve Brusatte who helped design Sony's Wonderbook game. Can you give us some background...
Casting Call – Call Of Duty
on June 03, 2013 at 02:30 PM
Call of Duty has seen a level of mainstream success that few franchises in gaming history can claim to achieve. Considering that less-popular series have been turned into Hollywood films, we wouldn't be surprised if Activision decided to take their shooter to the big screen. As we've done in...
Mario’s Film Folly: The True Story Behind Hollywood’s Biggest Gaming Blunder
on May 28, 2013 at 09:49 PM
In honor of the 20th anniversary of the Super Mario Bros. movie (released on May 28, 1993), we wanted to share with you this piece from October 10, 2011 about the troubles plaguing the film. For all their absurdity, the Super Mario Bros. games follow a straightforward template. An Italian plumber adventures...
Casting Call – Half-Life

Noobz Director Blake Freeman Answers Our Questions
on February 05, 2013 at 04:51 PM
The gaming-themed movie Noobz is out in world to a mixed reception (our own Dan Ryckert did not particularly enjoy it ). Director Blake Freeman was nice enough to chat with us before our review released and was more than willing to discuss all aspects of the move. This interview covers specific plot...
Noobz Wants To Make You Hate Everything About Gaming
on January 28, 2013 at 01:36 PM
Many gamers like to think of themselves as intelligent, well-rounded individuals who simply enjoy the medium of interactive entertainment. While plenty of us fit that description, there is a loud minority of obnoxious idiots that undoubtedly exists in our hobby. If you’ve spent any time at gaming...
Five Ways To Make The Mass Effect Film Not Suck
on October 26, 2012 at 07:21 PM
Like most video game movies, a film adaption of the Mass Effect series has been “in the works” for some time. A few days ago, we got a tiny little nibble of information about the state of the film. It has a new writer who is a fan of Mass Effect, and Casey Hudson, the director of the Mass...
Game Informer Watches Super Mario Bros. The Movie
on August 09, 2011 at 01:00 PM
The Super Mario Bros. games have an incredibly simple plot: Mario fights goombas and turtle-looking koopas on his way to save a princess. It’s not surprising that Hollywood felt it had to elaborate on the story when it made a major motion picture out of the property back in 1993. Unfortunately...
Casting Call: Gears Of War
on July 08, 2011 at 12:20 PM
Back in 2007, New Line nabbed the rights to a Gears of War movie. Four years later, and we're hearing reports that the project is deep in development hell. We'd like to do what we can to help, so I put together this list of casting suggestions for the possibly upcoming film. Marcus Fenix - Dave...
Lights, Camera, Action Button
on June 03, 2011 at 05:40 PM
No, this article isn’t about how L.A. Noire’s expressive facial animations and multilayered story have blurred the line between film and game. Rockstar’s 1940s saga makes an appearance in this article, but it’s only to stress that video games are becoming more and more similar...
