There were a few things wrong with that movie (like the bad guys having no real menace...have a look at the animated movie or series to see what an evil cunt Bison can be), but it's a good movie. A real life G.I. Joe I heard it called once. And yes, there's no denying the skill of Raul Julia, or, on that note, ever disliked some of the characters from the game.Originally posted by LeHah
The only problem with it is that Raul Julia uses the SFII arcade controls to attack Jean-Claude duing that speedboat chase.
I completely forgot about Mortal Kombat and it's sequal, Annihilation. It was silly, full of action, and over the top. In other words, just perfect for the game. Plus I liked the look of who they had play Shao Khan. Remember that he wears a helmet in the game, so they could have used any thick slab of meat, but I felt that Khan in the movie was unique.Originally posted by Wedge009
When I saw Street Fighter, I was very accepting of movies, but even Street Fighter felt a little silly to me. Good thing Kylie's gone back to singing instead.
Tomb Raider was okay, for a game to movie thing, anyway. But a bit too weird for me. I think Mortal Kombat was quite good, yay martial arts!
I can't believe I didn't even think of this one until now. Probably a good thing because it was so bad. I was with my friends celebrating the New Year from 1996 to 1997, and among one of the videos we hired was a terrible parody of Jurassic Park: Chicken Park! It was doubly bad because of the porn (which we didn't even know about) and the tiresome juvenile sex references, and... oh it was just plain bad. I'm sure there are loads of movies like this out there, but after watching Get Shorty (which I didn't like either), this felt really, really bad!
Sorry, I seem to have missed where obviousness was an issue, in regards to "worst movie" discussions.Originally posted by LeHah
Manos is too obvious a mention.
Never saw it, so I couldn't comment... besides noting that the whole anagram thing must've really p*ssed Santa off to make him fight anyone.That movie where Santa Claus fights Satan with the help of Merlin was way worse anyway.
You know, I found it sad that RJ's movie swansong (not counting the 1995 TV movie) was SF. I mean, to have a video game movie (and one that wasn't that great a movie, at that) as his final curtain call seems like a weak send-off for a guy whose movie career, at the time of his death, had been going for 2 decades.Originally posted by LeHah
I will never dislike Street Fighter because I've never, ever not liked Raul Julia.
