A "Mortal Kombat" Movie Remake, Seriously?
Alright, now I've seriously seen it all. I know that you can't derive much substance from a virtually blank IMDB page, but if the internets are to be believed, there's apparently work being done on a remake of the 1995 movie adaptation of "Mortal Kombat," which was seriously my favorite movie as a 9 year old superdork. Although I would love nothing more than to watch another awesomely terrible MK movie, you have to admit that the concept of a remake of a movie based on a video game is about as creatively bankrupt Hollywood can get. That is unless someone is planning to do a remake of a movie based on a video game that's based on a book, which I'm sure will come to pass someday very, very soon.
Until I hear more news about this (for me to poop on!), I'm gonna go ahead and put "Mortal Kombat (1995)" in my Netflix queue and relive awesome memories of my childhood. For those of you who haven't seen it, this trailer is all you need to convince you that its absolutely neccesary viewing:
Now, if only I could recover my awesome two-toned Mortal Kombat button up t-shirt that I had. A boy can dream, can't he?
