We want these on the big screen!
Sometimes video games are so good that they need to be shared with the non-gamers of the world in the form of cinematic blockbusters. Lately, we've been so looking forward to 'Ratchet & Clank' and it's got us thinking about a whole bunch of other games we want to see as films.
Ratchet And Clank hits theaters this year
It's been happening since the dawn of the PlayStation, with games such as 'Resident Evil', 'Assassin's Creed', 'Silent Hill', 'Tomb Raider' and 'Hitman' all making it to the big screen, and with 'Warcraft' and 'Ratchet & Clank' still to come this year - the latter of features the voices of James Arnold Taylor, David Kaye and Sylvester Stallone. Movies have even started taking cinematography tips from the console world, with Ilya Naishuller's award-winning sci-fi adventure 'Hardcore Henry' becoming the first POV film last year.

These adorable heroes are feistier than they look.
Geeks assemble! It's time to kick some asteroid according to the tagline of the upcoming film 'Ratchet & Clank'; an adaptation of the Playstation platformer video game franchise of the same name featuring a feline hero and his loyal robot companion. Not to mention a host of other star characters.
Ratchet & Clank is finally brought to film
The movie comes following the launch of the new video game, which is a re-imagining of the whole franchise rather than an addition to the existing gaming experiences. Game writer Todd Fixman has been working on the screenplay, with directors Jericca Cleland ('Animism') and Kevin Munroe ('TMNT') at the helm of the film.
Ratchet is a little Lombax with big plans for himself. The galaxy where he lives has become threatened by an evil villain Ratchet knows he must do something. When Captain Qwark announces that the galactic rangers are on the lookout for a special new recruit, Ratchet thinks he's just the guy for the job. Sure, he doesn't have any experience and is ultra-small compared to the other heroes in the rangers but that won't deter Ratchet from applying.
Turned down by his all-time hero, Captain Qwark, Ratchet decides he's not going to give up that easily. Both he and his new smart talking friend Clank must find their inner courage and become part of a battle to save the galaxy from complete inhalation.
Ratchet And Clank the movie is based on the still popular video game which originally came out in 2002 for the PS2.

Swan gets a camera crew to tail him to Hollywood -- where Commander Courage, a supposed WWII era patriotic hero -- has been reinvented as Codename Courage, a ninja-like fighter of terrorism everywhere. But quickly he's on to the San Diego Comic-Con convention, where the bulk of the film takes place. It's hard to tell where the staged stuff for the movie ends and the fanboy ga-ga stuff begins: Among the countless shots of scantily clad fanbabes, costumed kids, and hugs with random convention exhibitors and fans there's a semblance of a story. Basically that involves Swan trying to convince everyone he meets that the old Commander Courage is better than the new Codename Courage (including a scene with Hamill and Stan Lee on a panel at the convention. Just don't think about it too much or you'll start to ask yourself just why Swan would be sent to this convention in the first place. It works only in the sense of putting the characters into oddball situations, but it's got little to do with anythig in the plot.
