Live Action Video Games

by G. Christopher Williams

30 April 2012

The Moving Pixels podcast looks at how some video game homages fare as live action properties.
 

This week Nick and I are joined by Jorge Albor and Scott Juster of the Experience Points podcast to discuss how video games fare as live action properties.

Some of these films are homages, some are there to support their franchise, some are both.  Most are better than what we have seen on the big screen.
  

If you want to follow along at home, you can locate all of the films that we discuss on YouTube:

+ Assassin’s Creed: Lineage
+ Mortal Kombat: Legacy
+ Portal: No Escape

This podcast is also available via iTunes.
