What's the Best Video Game Movie?

.
I don't know why this question struck me the other day - perhaps it was thinking about Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander's careers and ruminating on the mutual flops that were Assassin's Creed and her Tomb Raider reboot, or perhaps it was when I was looking at these pictures of Jake Gyllenhaal and ruminating on the flop that was Prince of Persia - but it's a question that strains against Our Age: not just which is the best Video Game Movie, but is there even a good Video Game Movie? 

I would say yes, that the first Resident Evil movie is good; terrific actually. and I also think the first Silent Hill is pretty good too.  Angelina Jolie's original Tomb Raider movie at least has some fun to it (and she punches a shark in the second one!) Unfortunately most of them turn out...

but out of the five I deem most worthy I ask you...

I like the Warcraft movie, it had its issues but a good watch overall.

I still haven't seen WARCRAFT! I was driven away by the bad reviews
but I still want to when I get the chance; I've got to get on it

I immediately thought of "The Wizard" or "Tron". Clearly I'm an old.

Either Takashi Miike's "Ace Attorney" or Kiyoshi Kurosawa's V-Cinema "Sweet Home". Curious about Neko Atsume, though.
