Video Game Movies: How Can They Be Better?

Friday, June 17, 2016 - 14:00

So, Warcraft wasn't bad, but it wasn't exactly great, either. And this seems to be the case with a lot of video games movies (though, admittedly, some are just plain bad). So what needs to be done to make what should be a surefire thing actually work?

For this week's Who Won the Week podcast, the editors at our sister site, Blastr, honed in on video game movies, looking at the past (Doom, House of the Dead), present (Warcraft) and future (Assassin's Creed). They're joined by Grace Randolph of Beyond the Trailer as they discuss how this genre can be taken to the next level. Really, there's no reason why every video game movie from here on out can't be a winner!
