Filmmaker Robert Zemeckis Is Bad At Video Games

Robert Zemeckis, director of Back to the Future and Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, is good at making movies. He's good at writing them. But he's not very good at video games.

Zemeckis tells MTV, "I love what they do in the technology, the way they move those images, I'm fascinated by the amount of code-writing those guys do to make those games work. But I just have a problem sitting there for hours and hours and hours knowing that I'm always going to end up losing. It's such a fatalistic mindset, I know I'm never going to get to the highest level...but I'm gonna play anyway."

Somebody tell Zemeckis about easy mode and co-op play! Games aren't that hard — not like watching his thriller What Lies Beneath or anything. That was painful.

    Pfah! What Lies Beneath was the most underappreciated suspense flick of the last two decades. Don't confuse slow pacing for lack of artistic prowess. (Also has one of the most subtly subversive movie posters ever used.)
