Top 5 Video Game live action films

Michael Marr from Capsule Computers wrote :

Traditionally, video game based films have performed rather poorly at the box office for a variety of reasons. Limited public interest in the subject matter; poor adaptations of the source material; or even the poor choices in casting and acting. However, it has not always been a case of doom and gloom for the video game industry on the big screen. (Culture, Halo: Forward Unto Dawn, Wreck-It-Ralph)

Wreck-It-Ralph is "Live" action?!
The author has no idea how badly they've embarrassed themselves have they?

"Top 5 Video Game Films"

Sadder part is many who read it probably wont realize the flub either.

Someone obviously didn't read the article - "To thin out the pack a little bit (and mostly to ignore the dozens of animate sub-par Pokémon movies out there), the only criteria I set for this list was that the movies in question have to be done in a live action format, as most serious Hollywood attempts are. So let’s take a look at the top five live action video game films!"

Considering pic #2-5, no, I didn't bother reading an article which had nothing to do with the lead in pic and article title. None of those movies were well regarded.

Also given that #1 wasn't theatrically release, is indy if not a fan work, it would have been better to make a list of fan movies. There are tons of them.

If you happen to have written that or are from the site, then you need to do a whole lot better.

This shouldn't have been approved because its low quality pap that by its first pic is exploiting a movie game that, besides being about games, has *NOTHING* whatsoever to do with the subject.
