On how game culture and logic have seeped into film, from "Scott Pilgrim" to "Gamer" to "Run Lola Run."

Video game to movie adaptations have always struggled, but that doesn’t mean that games and cinema don’t successfully overlap all the time. This week’s IFC News podcast discusses how game culture and logic have seeped into film, from the battles and extra lives of “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” to the avatar dystopia of “Gamer” to the surreal critique of “eXistenZ.”

This week’s keyword game giveaway is a DVD of Noboru Iguchi’s “The Machine Girl.”
