Phoenix Wright movie is HOLY CRAP THEY NAILED IT


7:15 PM on 11.07.2011



I've never been so taken aback by the level of dedication present in a game-to-movie adaptation. The trailer for the Ace Attorney film just is the first Ace Attorney game. Giant red afros on Japanese ladies, full body possession, foggy murders on boats; it's all here. There are even evidence-tossing attacks. The movie looks completely perfect.

I should have expected no less from the great Takashi Miike, part time No More Heroes 2 character and director of Audition, Yatterman, Yakuza, and countless other modern surrealist classics. It's clear that Miike loves his source material, which is a rarity these days when it comes to the directors of videogame movies.

If this film does well, I hope that we'll see more literal game-to-movie adaptations in its wake. Blaster Master, Katamari Damacy, and Super Meat Boy immediately come to mind. How about you? Do you like your game-to-film adaptations softened for the silver screen, or do you take them hard and literal like do?

If you haven't visited MrSolidSnake745's YouTube channel before, he basically recreates various iconic songs by way of floppy drives -- it's just what he does, and he does it well. Just yesterday he posted one of my personal...more
