Assassin's Creed Movie News: 5 Movies That Could Improve Reputation of Video Game Movies

The concept of the video game movie is in dire peril. For years, the franchise languished becoming the black sheep of the industry. Where once many saw opportunity, now everyone watches on with dread. And who could blame them. After seeing so many critically disparaged renditions of "Resident Evil" and other guffawed films by Uwe Boll, it seems a natural reaction. And let's not even bring up that 90's "Super Mario Bros."

NYFF 2015 - 'Carol' Movie Review: Love Wins With Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara

Some might claim that "Carol's" poignancy and power comes from its social context and jubilation of recent events. Yet does not all art rely on its social context for its power on some level?

A time when the dream of that equality was nowhere to be found and survived instead on the strength of the people willing to commit to it. That is the beauty of "Carol." Love always wins.

Black Mass Johnny Depp

'Black Mass' Leaves Audiences With No Hero In Morally Bankrupt World

"Black Mass" is exactly what you expect from a gangster film. Violent and filled with a great deal of moral questioning. This film is not afraid to throw the viewer into a world where everyone is corrupt; there is simply no one to provide a moral heading or hope. This might challenge audiences, but certainly elevates the material in many respects. Depp's performance in particular is the standout while the film's propulsive pace helps keep the story organized and clear.

Nintendo Movies News: Could Metroid, Zelda & Pikmin Finally Come to Silver Screen?

Remember that "Super Mario Bros?" movie back in 1993? Even if you don't want to admit it, you can't help but feel the sting of seeing one of the most iconic video game characters of all time get decimated on the silver screen.
