[1-STAR MOVIE REVIEW] Mortal Kombat: Annihilation

Tagged ,

The year was 1995 – the world of videogame nerds was overtaken by the cinema masterpiece that was Mortal Kombat.  ..ok, fine, it wasn’t a masterpiece, but it was kinda badass.

The year was 1997 – the world of videogame nerds realized something had gone horribly wrong and the movie studio was trying to cash-in on the IP and gave us Mortal Kombat: Annihilation.

So now, what happens when the Somethings go back in time, choose their Kombatent and rise through the ranks to fight against the villanous Shao Khan.. who is apparently not the Emporer of the Outworld trying to take over the Overworld… he is, apparently, a whiny Italian man whose father really pulls the strings. Maybe. We don’t know.

Test your might – and your stomach this week on 1-Star Movie: Mortal Kombat: Annihilation.

Okay here we g–MORTAL KOMBAT, duhn duhn duhn du duhn!

[ELEVATOR PITCH] Livestream For The Cure: Movie to Video Game

Tagged , ,

If you listen to us semi-regularly, you know that we were once again a part of the amazing Livestream For The Cure event this past month. With friend of the show and the Jerry Lewis of podcasting charity events, Nick Haskins at the helm, we once again go into the elevator and ask a man with a giant check if we could use it… for what?

Well, this week we are taking a video game franchise and turning it into a movie, or vice versa.

That’s not all you get in this episode, as afterwards we hang out with the Livestream crew and talk movies, Furiosa, a bit about the show ending, and just generally merrymake with our ‘For the Cure’ family.  We want to thank everyone involved and everyone that stuck around and donated during our time.

That said, the event is over, but there is never a bad time to donate and help to live in a world without cancer.

With that said, enjoy the show!  Ok, here we go…
