    Live action toon films, or live action videogame films?

    Now granted, there are some decent to good films in both, but both get shit on by Hollywood regularly.

    I'm going to go with video game films getting the worst of it. It should be simple because you're just trying to tell the story established in a single game... but Hollywood screw around and puts their "artistic" spin on it. The old adage if it isn't broken don't fix it applies here.

    When it comes to cartoon based movies in live action I can at least say that the ones I watched generally are at least entertaining from a spectacle stand point. A lot of video games films somehow miss that in my experience.

    That reminds me of a episode of the "Fatman on Batman" podcast where Marc Bernardin described how a Hollywood writer doesn't want to just straight out adapt a existing material, but work on putting unique spins on it to get it sold in pitch meetings, make it stand out, and I'm assuming on this one, get the writer enough credit to insure they have a next job to jump to quickly afterwards.

    True. Problem is that their unique spins tend to be terrible more often than not. Everyone's mileage may be different on that of course.
