4.7 Mortal Kombat (1995)

ROUND 2 HAS BEGUN! ‘Super Kombat Fighter: Double Dumpster Edition Turbo’ month continues with a Paul W.S. Anderson movie we actually like! Soul stealing sorcerer Shang Tsung rounds up Earthrealm’s mightiest warriors for a deadly martial arts tournament to decide the fate of the universe. With a little help from the jovial God of Thunder, Christopher Lambert’s Raiden *HEH HEH HEH*, Puerto Rican Princess Kitana, and Chris Farley the ‘Beverly Hills Ninja’, the warriors of Earth just might have a chance at stopping the evil Outworld Emperor Shao Kahn from merging the realms in seven days…or something. Before ‘Mortal Kombat: Annihilation’ gave us a Fatality and ripped out our spines, there was a movie that set the standard for great video game adaptations. We’re talking Scorpion and Sub-Zero! Kano and Sonya Blade! Liu Kang and Goro! Johnny Cage and Art Lean! Reptile and terrible 90’s CGI!! All that and more as we travel back to the arcade to fill our hearts full of Friendship. So grab your $500 sunglasses, wave goodbye to Jaxx, and GET OVER HERE because we’re putting another quarter in 1995’s Mortal Kombat!

4.6 Double Dragon

Round 1 of our Super Kombat Fighter: Double Dumpster Edition Turbo month kicks off with a movie based on an animated series that’s based on a video game! Robert Patrick attains one half of a mystical medallion that allows him to magically turn into a shadow and possess people, but he needs the other half to attain ultimate power. The rest of the medallion is held by two teenage brothers that practice martial arts, one thoughtful and the other reckless, and one only wears blue while the other only wears red. Their names? Leonardo and Raphael…uh, we mean Billy and Jimmy Lee! It’s up to them to stop the T-1000 and his army of mooks, including Michael Berryman, Huey Lewis and the News, the mutated vesiculated nutsack Bane Abobo, and a literal mailman going postal. With the help of Alyssa Milano and egregious shots of her ass, they just might be able to combine the power of body and soul to overcome all odds. Hop in the Dragon Wagon, suck down some special spinach slop, and make sure to wave to Sly and Dennis while you’re visiting Koopa-City One, because we’re burning rubber and roundhouse kicking our way through Double Dragon!
