839. Game Over – PES


SUMMARY: Classic arcade games are recreated using household items.

WHY IT’S HERE: By the time he made ‘Game Over’, PES fans knew the drill. What was incredible was how fresh he managed to keep each new film, despite using the same technique of creating recognisable scenes out of everyday items. For ‘Game Over’, PES creates scenes from five classic arcade games: Centipede, Frogger, Asteroids, Space Invaders and Pac-Man. Lovers of classic games will be delighted by the close attention to detail and these games are so iconic or else generically familiar that most viewers will recognise them. As usual for PES films, ‘Game Over’ doesn’t outstay its welcome at barely a minute and a half long. This brevity it to the film’s advantage however, and the temptation for many will be to click the play button again the minute it’s over.
