Top 10 Worst Video Game Movies

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is the game (oh, really?), of the sleeper hit movie, of the comic book of the same name. It’s also a colourful homage to the late, great side-scrolling 2-D beat-'em-ups of the 16-bit '90s, where your pugilistic momentum hinged entirely on the glorious thrashing of buttons; a rare offering of simple, half-decent thrills from the regularly half-bottomed mill of movie-to-game conversions. Avatar: The Game, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (the game), Terminator Salvation (the game, yes): All awful, terrible things, but rotund men in suits know lots of you will buy these video games on account of having enjoyed the films, so you know, effort? Whatever. The reality of the reverse, however (that being when a game becomes a movie), is a much, much uglier place. While there have been some unexpected (yet still debatable) gems in the form of Resident Evil, Silent Hill and even glaringly inaccurate 1993 genre-first Super Mario Bros., more often than not, the end result is tragically funny, for all the so-wrong-they’re-still-quite-wrong reasons.

8 Ways To Make Your Pet An Internet Sensation

Let me tell you a story about fame. Many years ago, Oscar and Ethel Schimmelbaum moved to Florida with the hopes of a better life and to escape the most horrific persecution in history – a strict no pets policy at their New York brownstone. The year was 2008. Oscar was a successful piano salesman, moving Steinways and baby grands into assisted living facilities across these glorious United States. Life was good for the Schimmelbaums, but they had no idea about the impact they’d eventually have on the entire world. Ethel spent her days at home, writing postcards to her four lawyer sons and raising their 8-year old calico, Moses. Over the years, Ethel took advantage of her husband’s profession, teaching herself how to play simple tunes on her electric piano. She picked up the classics with ease, playing for her Mah Jong partners and the occasional Fed Ex delivery driver. But one night she and Oscar awoke to a strange tune, an unknown sound emanating from their vintage Wurlitzer. As she crept downstairs to investigate the clatter, she locked eyes on a site of pure amazement.

The 14 Habits of Highly Miserable People

Most of us claim we want to be happy—to have meaningful lives, enjoy ourselves, experience fulfillment, and share love and friendship with other people and maybe other species, like dogs, cats, birds, and whatnot. Strangely enough, however, some people act as if they just want to be miserable, and they succeed remarkably at inviting misery into their lives, even though they get little apparent benefit from it, since being miserable doesn’t help them find lovers and friends, get better jobs, make more money, or go on more interesting vacations. Why do they do this? After perusing the output of some of the finest brains in the therapy profession, I’ve come to the conclusion that misery is an art form, and the satisfaction people seem to find in it reflects the creative effort required to cultivate it. In other words, when your living conditions are stable, peaceful, and prosperous—no civil wars raging in your streets, no mass hunger, no epidemic disease, no vexation from poverty—making yourself miserable is a craft all its own, requiring imagination, vision, and ingenuity. It can even give life a distinctive meaning.

12 Ways to Beat Addiction

By far my most popular post is the gallery, “12 Depression Busters.” But those suggestions were actually a response to Beyond Blue reader Peg’s query on how to stop smoking. They absolutely do help a person fight depression and the ongoing war against negative thoughts; however they were designed as techniques to use when getting pulled into addictive behaviors. The last month or so I have used every single one of these. And I’m happy to report that I actually feel a lot freer from insidious, destructive behavior than I did several weeks ago.

10 Celebrity Foreclosures

Ever since the housing crisis began, Americans have gotten used to hearing a word that only used to apply to the very desperate — foreclosure. In the past, the word summoned to mind images of abandoned, dilapidated homes with boarded windows, a vacant porch swing and the occasional tumbleweed. Those days are over, and the foreclosed home in move-in condition is an increasingly common sight today. It seems like something that can happen to anybody, including famous people. The idea that celebrities are immune to market forces is long gone. Many of the celebrities who went into foreclosure were in career decline at the time. However, some have gone into foreclosure while still having a popular movie in the multiplexes, or a recording that tops the Billboard charts. Fame is no longer protection from foreclosure, and neither is success.
