The Top Five Worst Video Game Movies in History
In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies and You Think You Know TV comes a new YouTube series: Top Five! Each week (or so; we’ve got a lot of other stuff going on), ScreenCrush editor and critic Matt Singer will count down a particular topic from the world of movies (and probably write these introductory posts in the third person).
The worst video game movies? How could we possibly pick just five? (Honestly, it was really tough, and we had to make a few rule for ourselves to narrow things down.) Basically every video game movie is a contender for this list, and there’s at least one director with so many crummy video game movies on his IMDb page that the whole video could have just focused on his work. Instead, we surveyed the wide world of video game cinema to consider why these films are always so freaking awful.
Top Five is a ScreenCrush original series that ranks all kinds of cool stuff from the world of movies. This is our 15th episode, so check out some of our past episodes below. Plus, we want your feedback, so be sure to let us know what Top Fives you want to see in future episodes! And don’t forget to subscribe to the ScreenCrush YouTube channel below to catch all our future episodes. Until next time, remember keep video games where they belong: on your PlayStation and out of movie theaters.
