Video Games: The Movie: The Podcast


Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (2001)

This month's movie is Final Fatasy: The Spirits Within! What if a movie had the budget and mediocrity of Avatar but none of the profit? We've watched some stinkers for this podcast, but this one is easily the single worst film we've ever watched. It basically only has the Final Fantasy title for marketing reasons. Our rating: 1/5 film. This isn't an adaptation of anything Next Month: Dragon Quest: Your Story (2019) Twitter | Discord Dan | Maxie

Warcraft (2016)

This month's movie is the live-action Warcraft film! It's weird, it's messy, there's orc Moses, what more could you ask for? Next Month: Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within Twitter | Discord Dan | Maxie

Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva (2009)

This month's movie is Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva! This movie was surprisingly decent, but felt a little lacking in places, and with plenty of room to riff. Not enough puzzles for a movie based on puzzle games, and it's weird how they made a death game scenario where nobody dies. Next Episode: Warcraft (2016) Twitter | Discord Dan | Maxie

Hardcore Henry (2015)

After much delay, we bring you Hardcore Henry! DOOM (2005) was such a rough movie that we needed to find a good movie to watch, and we went with this one! In a bold and experimental approach to filmmaking, this movie is shot entirely in first person and meant to mimic an FPS. It works, but maybe it needs some more cooldown on its (extremely good) action. Our Rating: 5/5 Adaptation 4/5 Film Next Month: Pokemon: The First Movie (1999) Twitter | Discord Dan | Maxie

DOOM (2005)

This month's movie is the 2005 Doom film! There are three important things you should know about this movie: 1) This movie is based on the then-most-recent game in the series, Doom 3 2) Actually this movie is based on a more shitty version of Alien 3) This is somehow the single worst film we've ever covered, so much so that we have to break our rules in order to get something palateable in our systems.

Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004)

This month's movie is the second film in the Paul W.S. Anderson Resident Evil film franchise, Resident Evil Apocalypse!

Super Mario Bros.: Peach-hime Kyushutsu Dai Sakusen! (AKA The Great Mission to Rescue Princess Peach) (1986)

This month's movie is the 1986 Mario OVA! Years before the live-action film there was another Mario film. This one was an hour-long OVA that never reached western shores. Animated and true to the source material, it was certainly a holy grail of mario media. Fairly recently, the entire film was restored and put on the Internet Archive for the public to view. How does it compare? The answer may surprise you! Our Rating: 4/5 Adaptation 3/5 Film Next Month: Resident Evil: Apocalypse (guest-starring Morgan Cursegoat!) Twitter | Discord Dan | Maxie | Skye

Prince of Persia (2010)

This month's movie is the 2010 Prince of Persia film! This is our first Disney film for the podcast, and you can tell because Captain Jack Sparrow is in this one! Featuring a cast of middle eastern characters played by white actors and set in what is basically a fantasy setting with real-life names and locations, it's not that great, but at times is a pretty decent adventure movie.

Dōbutsu no Mori (AKA the Animal Crossing Movie) (2006)

This month's movie is Dōbutsu no Mori! The Animal Crossing movie! We sit back, relax and vibe with this wonderful film. It is such a good adaptation that it can convey the themes and appeal of Animal Crossing arguably even better than the games can!
