1. Alone in the Dark (2005)
And not only does the movie feature piss-poor dialog and cheap special effects, but also some pretty atrocious editing at some points, leading to a risible moment or two in the movie (such as when a supposedly dead soldier character suddenly starts moving again…), as well as a convoluted plot about a demon-worshipping Mayan tribe and some poorly shot action sequences.
But no matter how bad this film may be, we still wait hopefully for the day in which an uncontested blockbuster video game movie is released, one that will make people think that film adaptations of video games are actually worth it.
