Not to be confused with video game movies which is another subject. What I'm talking about here is a weird pet peeve of mine: it really bothers me how poorly actors who "play" a video game in movies (or TV series) simulate playing. All they do is mash buttons on the controller like a madman regardless of what game they're suppose to be playing.
One example I remember from a while ago was two kids playing Final Fantasy VIII in a scene of the Charlie's Angels movie, yes TWO, at the same time!
We've all heard stories about actors learning to sing, dance, play an instrument for a part, I find it lazy that they (or anyone involved in the process) can't be bothered to make it look somewhat believable.
Am I the only one who feels that way? Do you guys have examples of movies that did it right (or terribly wrong)?
Signature goes here!
