All the films presented here will have as a common denominator, a link to video games. Be it a mere adaptation, or a film which reflects on the video game media. Men, women, children: welcome to Crossed.Crossed
is a French Web Video
series hosted by Karim Debbache, that run from February 2013 to April 2014. The topic is simple: films that are either adapted from video games, or are about video games. They can be old or not so old, bad, good or okay, but Karim has a lot of things to say on every one of them, and only 10-15 minutes to say them.
While the tone is humoristic and often sarcastic, it is usually peppered with detailed analyses of what did and did not work in said film, as well as comments on its (or its director's) history, or on cinematic techniques in general.
Little sketches often intervene, featuring his two sidekicks Gilles Stella (the show's image and sound manager) and Jérémy Morvan, or another Karim.
The show is pretty fast-paced, and often draws its humour from it.
The show's run wasn't very long, as Karim hadn't planned on making more than 25-30 episodes.
If you're curious but don't speak French, here's the first episode
subtitled in English.
