Top 5 Worst Video Game Movies

SH: As a kid, going to see a movie based on a video game sounds great. How could it go wrong? Of course, at that age, we're too young to know all the work that goes into making a movie. All we can think about is the combination of two of our favorite things: movies and video games!

But then, the Hollywood machine takes hold of a game, attaches personalities where there were none and turns a button-mashing good time into a mindless 90-minute snoozefest. Think about it, what's the best video game movie you've ever seen? Mortal Kombat or maybe Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time? One of the Resident Evil movies? Tomb Raider? Let's face it, there really haven't been that many quality video game movies. Some are classics, in that, "This is so corny, but I'm loving it" sense and some are just your average big-budget popcorn flicks. They can be done well, but for the most part, video game movies ideas are best left in a wastebasket. (Alone in the Dark, Culture, Double dragon, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, Super Mario Bros.)

I remember watching Mortal Kombat 2 as a kid, and getting so excited when Scorpion yelled "GET OVER HERE!" before he grabbed Kitana.

It was a pretty cheesy movie, but I loved all the game references in it. Whoever made the MK films had clearly played the games before.

I like the SMB movie. As a movie it's actually good. People who hate on it will say "it's nothing like the games". That's where your argument falls flat on it's face because it's not Cannon with the games any ways.

Street Fighter was an absolute blinder, I remember when I saw Blanka for the first time. Not laughed so hard in all my life, just some ugly guy painted green pretty much.

Using Kylie for Cammy was an inspired decision though, I think they were just looking for an actress that had an ass to match Cammy's in the game haha. :D

These movies are absolutely the worst they could be. But because of that they will always be remembered. I watched them all when i was younger, and now i kinda wanna watch them all again. Netflix here i come!
