We’re sorry, Fivers, but your princess is in another castle…and it definitely took J and Q searching through a lot of castles to find enough good movies for a Top 5 Video Game Adaptations of All Time episode. In honor of the release of Sonic the Hedgehog, we decided it’s time, once and for all, to talk about video game movies. Select your character and Press Start to re-live the majesty of the 1990s and 2000s when a new video game movie was released almost every year…and Uwe Boll only directed 90% of them!

On this episode, we help you finally learn the difference between Paul W.S. Anderson, Wes Anderson, and Paul Thomas Anderson once and for all, and lead you on an 8-bit adventure into the dregs of American cinema. Are there any gems to be found in the sale bin at Wal-Mart? Join us this week as we pull out the cartridge, blow in it, and see if we can’t make this thing work.
