LAMBScores: Magic Video Game Adaptation: The Sequel

by Jay Cluitt · July 1, 2016 · Featured, LAMBscores · No Comments

You know what I’m getting sick of? Sequels. Every week the Lambscores posts are full of sequel after sequel, unoriginal adaptation after unoriginal adaptation. We need at least five reviews for a relatively fair ranking, so get out there and review the smaller films! Please! If only for my sake! Alas, this week we’ve got a horror sequel, a completely unwanted nonsense magic sequel and, sigh, a video game adaptation that’s done about as well as anyone expected. Here’s what the LAMB community had to say:

If you want to get involved, here’s how LAMBScores work: Over in the LAMB Forums there’s a sub-board  called LAMBScores. If you’ve written a review or recorded a podcast on a new release, find (or create) the thread there, and leave a link to your review, along with your site name and a score out of 5. Three weeks after the film has received a wide release the reviews will be collated and posted here, as long as there are at least five.
