Mortal Kombat. 7/10. Entertaining and for fans of the game there is enough gore/ fatalities to satisfy. Also makes fun of the game on multiple occasions. I'd watch it again.

It was probably the best video game movie ever made, it made the other MK movies look like the utter garbage they are.


I honestly haven't got to finish the last 15 minutes yet, but from what I saw Kano made the movie.


Compared to other video game movies I would give it a 8/10, compared to all movies it is a 6/10.

What character was Cole?  I enjoyed Mortal Kombat, as I just picked up MK11 Ultimate for PS4.  Very nostalgic. 

Cole was new for this movie. Don’t think he is in the games at all, yet. 

Descendant of Hanso, and the blood getting on the knife to bring him back as Scorpion was badass.

I wonder if they will create a new character for Cole, or if he will be the new Scorpion.  MK11 Ultimate is freaking awesome on PS4.  With the release of this movie, I'm hoping that there is an update in the very near future.

I enjoyed it, but felt it could have been much better. I'll still watch the next and the next. I've heard there will be 3 more.

I've been a longtime fan of MK game, since the first on Sega. The movie has so many little tidbits from the games, which was awesome.

I have MK11 for PS4. It's fun, but fighting games are so damn hard now. I only play it casually with friends, online is impossible.

I'll be going back through story mode on MK11, but letting it play out this time.  I skipped the scenes the first time through.

I got the gut feeling he will be the new Scorpion, but could see a new character all together.

I really liked MK but can we also discuss how infinitely better Goro was in this one than the ‘95 version.

I miss Goro in the video games.  Also want Smoke, Cyrex, Sektor, Reptile.  Just freaking release EVERYONE for crap's sake.

Reptile was in it, he just stayed in reptile form...never human form. He was in this form a number of times in the games weather it was playable or just a fatality/brutality/beastiality or whatever. 


I think the only game he stayed in human form was when you unlocked him as a secret character in MK1 and he was just scorpion/sub zero body with a green uniform rather than orange/blue.

Oh, I thought you meant the movie, that he wasn't in the movie.

Without Remorse. Terrible plot, solid action. 7/10. But the mid credits scene has my hyped.

Seaspiracy on Netflix.


Well needless to say I won't be eating fish anymore.  Very sad to see what we are doing to the oceans and the wildlife in it.  Not sure how we can regulate other countries, but I would vote for someone who made this a priority.

No idea about the movie nor about this review. Just FYI, the first thing that came up when I googled Seaspiracy, was this. Food for thought (pun intended).


And I am not a seafood person at all, hate most of it.


EDIT: Sorry, forgot the link..

its a documentary about over fishing and illegal fishing around the world, as well as how many fish are killed as a result of bycatch while trying to catch some of our favorite fish to eat.

I forgot the link above containing a review that interviewed marine biologists on the documentary.
