Pixelitis Picks: Awkward videogame movie/director pairings

"Was there ever really a decent videogame-turned-movie? That’s a tricky question.

More often than not, videogame movies are guaranteed to be panned by critics and the public alike. You can thank that due to a film crew’s unwillingness to collectively embrace the essence of what made a franchise so wonderful, or perhaps certain directors were simply miscast.

We’re not here to really suggest some potentially awesome director/videogame franchise pairings, because that seems ridiculously impossible to do within the sphere of Hollywood. If you’re going to come up with a director and game franchise combo, you’re going to need to stay realistic and expect the worst.

Let’s bring it on."
