    In today's very special episode I share what it was like to experience video game movies for the first time as an adult who had no idea they were like that. I watched Monster Hunter, Resident Evil, and Mortal Kombat! Which one do you think I liked the most?

Detective Pikachu is the only video game movie i've watched that I actually liked! The Sonic Movie tried to emulate that formula, but it was painful. Quite painful.

Street Fighter The Movie is legitimately super fun to watch and not even in a "so bad it's good" way. Raul Julia as Bison is just the greatest thing ever.

Just don't. There's no video game movie good enough to waste time on it. They are produced just for the money.

I mean, yeah, Paul W.S. Anderson's movies are what they are... but I bet once you start watching Uwe Boll's movies, you'd think Mr. Anderson's works were Oscar material.

Now, if someone like Joseph Kosinski would get back into "Oblivion" mode and put a high budget Mass Effect trilogy on the silver screen (or HBO/Netflix/etc.)... I might have some hope for video game movies. If you want a story for your video game movie... why not pick a video game with a story?

The best videogame movie ever is Scott Pilgrim. But to be fair, it was directed by Edgar Wright, and he does not make bad movies, his worst movie is just "really good".

Because games often tell very episodic stories, within a universe with detailed lore, characters and atmosphere. The same actually goes for book-to-movie adaptations, and TVseries-to-movie adaptations. A movie is pretty much only suitable for original screenplays which are written from scratch to fit the 90-180m long format. The Witcher was quite good, but would that have worked as a movie? Doubtful.

Only thing they care about is money and larger audience gives them larger money. So they try to grab as much audience as possible and so the movie turns out to be bad from us gamer's point of views....

The Sonic movie was terrible. Sonic can run across a country in seconds in the film at one point but then takes a car ride slowly for most of the movie. Why didn't he just get a map and run? His whole thing is he runs fast. Detective Pikachu was alright though :)

The Street Fighter movie. It's not good for any of the reasons they wanted it to be, but that movie is unintentionally a comedy masterpiece. Also M. Bison's portrayal is unironically good.

This video was made for me. I love to see people discovering Milla Jovovich's and Paul W.S Anderson's 3 decades career of destroying video games with movie adaptations. But I must say I like RE1 and RE Retribution (5) even more. Please, watch the RE5.

Detective Pikachu may have saved video game movies by setting a new standard. Even the new Sonic movie wasn't bad once Paramount took a step back and listened to their fans and fixed that abomination that was that first design that made it to the early trailers.

I get you are trying to make fun of these movies for the content. But Mila married Paul in 2009. The original Resident Evil movie came out in 2002. Back then, the movie was above average for a video game movie. Making fun of it almost 20 years later is not fair. Resident Evil 4 hadn't even come out yet. Come on boyfriend, I expect more authenticity from you.

Resident Evil had a chance of being an awesome HORROR film. Had they stuck to the source material. I remember playing RE way back when in my parents basement with all the lights off, surround sound blaring every clicking noise/sound. And having to finally admit defeat and turn a light or two on. They have almost on purpose screwed up the entire story line, stuck with big action scenes and ZERO of the horror aspect of the game. And they ( Hollywood ) haven't made a decent horror flick since The Entity in 1982. (BTW there are two different cuts of RE. One where there is a no nudity, and one where you can tell what Milla real hair color is) I need a HORROR flick that makes me go turn on the lights and wonder what that "new" sound the house just made is. And for those trolls that are about to say what about this movie its a horror. No sorry friend Saw isn't a horror it is slasher porn. My very small criteria of what a HORROR film is. Can you tell the same story and not have a single person die and it still scare the ever luvin poop out of ya.

I actually like the MHW movie but i seriously could have done without the isekai plot. Instead, make the movie about the field team leadee trying to get back to the ship. He can get kidnapped by nerscyllas, he can solo Black diablos. He can fight rathalos. Go ahead and keep the sky tower and Gore Magala despite being from different entries than MHW i just liked seeing the CGI monsters on the big screen. Would easily be a 9/10 for me with those changes.
