TGB Episode 131: Bringing the Console to Cinema (Guest: AJ Meadows)
by Tim Buel
November 2, 2012
On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by filmmaker and blogger A.J. Meadows (of The Slender Man, The Pixel Pulse) to go over their latest picks of the week, the newest DVD & Blu-ray releases, new trailers for 3D movie Empires of the Deep and Jack Reacher and talk about Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm, and plenty more. The main topic of the night was about video game to movie adaptations, in honor of video game movie Wreck-It Ralph hitting theaters this weekend. They talk over some of the best and worst of the sub-genre and what properties would function well as adaptations.
The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Wednesday nights starting ~7:30PM PST. You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!

Thanks for reading my review 🙂 I know you guys are big Nic Cage fans, but an episode on Udo Kier would be equally awesome iMO!

Left 4 Dead 2 would make a good movie in my opinion.

Final Fantasy 7 - Advent children is a good fun game adaptation!
