QUICK REVIEW: Tom and Jerry

Howdy ladies and gentlemen of the internet, how’s it going? So earlier this week I had the misfortune of watching the latest film adaptation of Tom and Jerry and now I am here to share my pain with you through a review via my podcast Film Focus.

In episode 116 of Film Focus, I review for one of the worst films I’ve watched for a while; Tom and Jerry. Now I’ve never been the biggest fan of the OG Tom and Jerry cartoons, it was like one of those cartoons you watched in between your favourites or when nothing else was on. That being said, when it was good, it was really fun and watched a lot of it in my childhood. I even watched that animated film from 1992 on TV numerous times, and while it’s not a great film by any means, it does have its quirks. So I know what the source material is, and this film… Is not the one. It does a massive disservice to the original cartoons. So how bad is this film? Well, check out this episode to find out!

Anyway here’s the review:

Video Game Adaptations Part 1

Howdy ladies and gentlemen of the internet, hope you are all well. So after many months and years of waiting and retooling, I finally get to cover part 1 of a topic that’s very special to me; Video Game Adaptations via my podcast Film Focus.

Now I am extremely passionate about video game adaptations as I believe they have the potential to be the next big genre in Hollywood if the right IPs are adapted with the right filmmakers. Alas since their inception there has been a lot of missteps in translating their unique elements from games to film.

So I wanted to look back at the first wave of video game films from the ’90s and have a casual analysis about 5 films and discuss:

  • When the came out
  • Their pros and cons
  • How they were adapted from their source material

I had a lot of fun making this and you’ll probably hear the passion in my voice from how loud I can be on occasions haha. So join me on a trip down memory lane as we dive into the early period of video game adaptations.

Timecodes:

05:32 Super Mario Bros. Movie
15:17 Double Dragon
21:46 Street Fighter
30:21 Mortal Kombat
44:30 Mortal Kombat: Annihilation
53:34 Conclusion

Anyway here’s the review:
