Mortal Kombat

Podcast: Mortal Kombat + Drinking Game!


Today we are reviewing the 1995 film Mortal Kombat, based on the video games of the same name. This film is epic(ly bad)! With Puppets! and Fight Scenes! and Human Corpse Candle Holders! (ew…)

We at Plot Culture think this movie would make a most epic party movie and have devised a Drinking Game for such events. Here is a Printable Drinking Game Cheat Sheet! If you take the challenge, please let us know! Send us pictures! Especially if you are pretty and single. Heeeeyyyyy….

Mortal Kombat Drinking Game

Please Drink Responsibly. And don’t give people tea if they don’t want tea.

Film Summary

The film starts with Liu Kang being called back to take part in the FIGHT FOR HUMANITY!! Oh my. He is joined by Sonya and Johnny Cage, as well as a whole bunch of other random people and Thistle’s favorite character: the random black guy who only has a handful of lines and then dies horribly in Mortal Kombat but was cool and should have had a better role.

They are guided in their journey by the eternal thunder god Raiden, a white dude with smoker’s lung, and together they all end up in another dimension/place by taking a nightmare boat. For some reason Raiden likes them and swishes about not doing much but looking intimidating. In the weird dimension/place they meet Kitana, a hot ninja princess who seems to have the ability to mentally project a phrase of words into your head, provided she has said that exact phrase to you five minutes before hand. Its a weird power. They fight a bunch of lackeys in Mortal Kombat, including a creepy puppet that kills the cool black dude. Sonya gets creeped on but its never really explained and Johnny Cage pulls a roadrunner to save the day. Sonya and Shang Tsung have a makeover party and then Shang is kicked by Liu Kang. A lot. An awful lot of kicking. Mortal Kombat Kicking!

Anway. Thats the summary, check out the podcast!

Cinderella: Back to Basics

I’ll be honest here; I did not have high expectations going into Cinderella (2015). After seeing bomb (Alice in Wonderland) after bomb (Oz, the Great and Powerful) after bomb (Maleficent) in theatres, I was ready to give up on the live action branch of Walt Disney Pictures. Every movie was the same: shoddy and cartoonish CG, an insulting spinoff of a well-known and well-loved work, and cringe-worthy writing. But this post isn’t about those sad, half-baked movies; this is about Cinderella and how Disney may…

Emma Watson and the Beast

Emma Watson has already married a Beast in a movie.  If you consider Ron Weasley’s eating habits beastly….  My ‘thing’ for Emma Watson has been long-lived and rather obsessive and I am very Very VERY excited that she is going to be crowned an official Disney Princess! I grew to love her in Harry Potter, and she earned my undying fervent love as the UN Women GoodWill Ambassador. On a more serious note; I am interested to see what the ‘interpretation’ of Beauty and the…
