For a second there, I thought you were going to talk about the Sonny Chiba "Street Fighter" movies. This is just as good, though.

That was a pretty funny episode lol :D

This looks like one of those movies to watch with a group of friends while you’re all high out of your minds like The Room or Battlefield Earth. Good thing I can stream megavideo on the PS3. I actually liked the old Street Fighter movie as a kid. The new Chun-Li movie was pure shit. although it was still better than Sucker Punch.

Well, now I don't need to troll youtube for my Live Action Street Fighter fix.

Incidentally, the Spinning Bird Kick looks about as plausible in real life as Wolverine's mask in live action.

Those mario and goku scenes are still better than the original Mario Bros movie and Dragonball Evolution

I MUST SEE THIS

Timothy said...

You know too be fair. I think this could be a new cult classic. This movie looks freakin' HILARIOUS! In Mel Brooks Spaceballs "So bad it's good" way, except instead it's "So bad it's AWESOME!"

I am so watching this sometime.

@Tim: Now I no what I'm watching at my 420 party.

By the way Bob, two weeks from now will be the 19th. The day before 420. Will you do anything special for that big picture episode?

By the way, Michael Bay has a 14 inch penis. No, I'm not kidding. Do what you will with that information.

Now I know* what I'm watching

THAT would have been something genuinely funny for April 1st.

That "transformers sucked because it was directed by Michael Bay, not because of bad design" is the flat out stupidest things you've ever said. Have you lost your mind? No it doesn't matter who directed the movie, what mattered was that Transformers didn't look exactly like the cartoon and looked modern! That's what you need to understand about 80's cartoon fans, we don't give a shit about the writing or the plot, we care about visual aesthetics only! If both transformers movies were exactly the same in plot but had the classic animation style, they would have been great! But the robots were "modern looking" therefore they sucked.

It's like hating a music video because it was directed by Amazing Atheist or Spoony regardless of content. It's stupid.
