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.
17 Amazing Bodypaint Superhero Costumes
It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a -- what the heck is that? Oh. Ohhhhh. Superhero costumes in comic books are often drawn as so impossibly tight and form-fitting that they basically look painted on. These 17 daring people have brought that concept into the real world by "wearing" superhero costumes made of nothing but bodypaint (and the occasional strategically placed bit of clothing).

Top 10 Misconceptions about Photography and the Law
Carolyn Wright is an avid photographer, attorney and author of www.photoattorney.com, a rich resource Web site that covers a wide range of issues and topics of interest to photographers. In her 18 years’ work as an attorney she has worked on hundreds of cases—most of which have been resolved without formal litigation. The most common matter she handles is the unauthorized use of her clients’ photographs. “Photographers have many misconceptions about copyright laws and intellectual property rights based on conversations they have had with colleagues and/or inaccurate information obtained from the Internet. My Top 10 List came about as a way to combat the spread of this misinformation,” Wright shares, whose areas of practice deal with intellectual property, including copyright and trademark law, rights of privacy and publicity, and contracts and licensing. “Unfortunately, the services of an attorney are sometimes required to enforce ownership rights, but a photographer should do all that is possible in advance of engaging legal counsel,” she notes. “One of the most important things is to register the copyright to all of his or her images that have been distributed to others (especially those on the Internet) with the U.S. Copyright Office. A second task for photographers seeking to make money with their photography is to really learn how to run and proactively manage a business.”

Top 10 Valuable Video Games
