Pokemon: Spell of the Unown is still the best Pokemon movie

So that Detective Pikachu movie was pretty good, wasn't it? It's not like I was expecting it to be a train-wreck or anything, but you can never be too sure with video game adaptations. Even when they're decent, like that Silent Hill movie t...

Yes dear friends, the Sonic trailer is worse than we expected

The Angry Birds Movie 2's first trailer takes flight

Sony Screen Gems to make a Just Dance movie

I don't think it needed mentioning, but video game film adaptations are usually never good. The hurdle that video game movies always run into is that they try to adapt several dozen hours of gameplay and narrative into a two-hour time frame...
