There have been some downright turgid affairs dragged kicking and screaming from consoles onto the big screen in the past few decades. From the decidedly surreal Super Mario Bros to the downright painful Prince of Persia, gamers have never had it so bad. Books such as the Harry Potter series, Twilight and Hunger Games, to name but a few, have seen incredible returns both critically and commercially in some cases; why havent games been able to replicate the same success? The answer is simple: the wrong material has been chosen or, rather, it hasnt been handled with the same care as the source material has for literature. Sure, books invariably make greater movies but I dont hold the same hopes for the upcoming Shadow of the Colossus movie for example (undoubtedly one of the best examples of the games are art movement). The following five films wont win Oscars but theyd certainly be better than anything else that has graced theatre screens.
