Movies based on videogames tend to be action-y gorefests or even action-y actionfests—which is fine if you play games for adrenaline.

Sadly, very few videogame-based movies have managed to capture the humor that I love. The upcoming Ratchet & Clank movie, however, looks like it could be the videogame-based movie that I’ve always wanted: the action-y laughfest.
Do you wait in breathless anticipation every time Professor Farnsworth greets his crew with the words, “Good news, everyone?” Can you read one of Futurama’s languages? Do you think that Morbo needs to replace Matt Lauer? If so, then you’re going to need a big swig of Olde Fortran Malt Liquor: the sublime science fiction comedy Futurama has been cancelled.
