Most video game movies are bad. Most are so bad they never get a sequel. Well the first Mortal Kombat movie wasn’t all that bad and made a ton of money, so of course they made a sequel. The only thing is…could this sequel be as good, if not better than the first? HELL NO! ‘Mortal Kombat Annihilation’ picks up LITERALLY where the first movie ends and falls apart within seconds. You know a movie is going to be bad when they re-cast almost all of the main characters from the first one, except for two. If you are looking for a movie with poor acting, anticlimactic death scenes, and all of your favorite characters from the video game completely wasted, then this movie is for you. By the end of this one, we felt like we only had six days until the world was going to end from an extra-dimensional invasion.
Next week, Gina has requested we watch the 2007 horror film ‘Shrooms’. Unlike a lot of the movies we have done lately, this one is actually on Netflix! So now it is even easier for you to join in on the madness before (or after) listening to the podcast. In ‘Shrooms’, a hallucinogenic trip goes bad when a group of college kids on holiday in Ireland munch some magic mushrooms and become plagued by nightmarish visions of death. But are they really being stalked and killed, or is it just drug-induced paranoia?
Remember every movie we watch is available for streaming on Netflix or YouTube! [Unless we say otherwise]
