Lights!  Camera!  VGM! Video games based on movies have generally garnered themselves a bad reputation. While it does seem that most of them were rushed out the door by their publishers, many of those games’ composers made sure to provide excellent soundtracks to make up for it. Talented folks like Jonathan Dunn, Barry Leitch, and Hitoshi Sakimoto have all lent their skills to these licensed titles at one point or another, and Mike and Ed share some of their favorite tunes from games based on films.  Grab some overpriced popcorn, pick your seat, and enjoy!
