There's something wrong in the world of entertainment when fan-made films are of better quality than what Hollywood would make. The Pac-Man movie trailer/short film made by Steelhouse Studios is what happens when a creative group of people take a well-known property, like Namco's Pac-Man video game, and give it a high-powered cinematic treatment.
Before I watched their film, I would have thought there was very little that could be mined from Namco's Pac-Man game universe to make a movie from. After seeing this, I wouldn't call myself a full believer just yet -- but I've moved a lot closer towards thinking that a Pac-Man movie could work if it were executed similar to this.
Things that I like about this Pac-Man film: the terminology thought up for the maze, the ghosts, the acryonym for Pac-Man, the way that the ghosts were visualized, the insane speed of Pac-Man when he moves, and the look they gave the hungry little yellow guy.
I wonder how much Steelhouse Studios dropped on this little venture, and what they are hoping that they will get from the visibility that their Pac-Man movie will bring them.
What are your thoughts on the Pac-Man movie? Was it sweet or stupid?
