Random Musings – 18 June 2012

18 Jun

Alright, I didn’t know what to write about for today’s blog post…but luckily…I just came across this article…


According to this article, the new Mortal Kombat film may feature a main character that works in a supermarket and later discovers that he has special abilities? Um…excuse me, but how could that possibly work? Let’s break this down. The humans in Mortal Kombat – specifically the earlier games, because let’s be real, Kobra isn’t going to be the main character here – are Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Sonya, Johnny Cage, Jax, Sub-Zero, Kano, and Stryker. Kano is evil, so he’s out. Sonya, Stryker, and Jax don’t really have superpowers, so they’re out. Okay, let’s face it…the main character is going to be Liu Kang. They at least have to keep that part correct.

And who even knows what the plot could be? Will Raiden be the manager of this supermarket? Is Shao Kahn going to be the owner of a large commercial chain that wants to buy out Raiden’s more homey supermarket to become the ruler of the realms…er…supermarket world? And more importantly, is Johnny Cage a paper or a plastic guy? 

The fact of the matter is, the thing I’ve always loved about Mortal Kombat is that it is significantly darker than most fighting games. There can still be corniness in the games and it still – at least in the beginning – follows the well known tournament format, but at times the story could be a little more b-horror flick than action movie. Half-dragons, over the top gore, centaurs, vampires, soul-stealers, acid-spitting lizards, and men forced to become more machine than human. All of that lost in the supermarket. It almost brings a tear to my eye, but Warner Bros…you had better make it work!

– Sorry for the rant, guys!

    I’ve recently heard that Raiden is going to be a weather man with a taser. I guess the primary goal of this movie is pissing off Mortal Kombat fans =_=
