Street Fighter - DVD podBLAST

The Movie that Killed Raul Julia.

The video game Street Fighter is one of the simplest, most basic games out there - just kick the shit out of your opponent.

The movie takes the idea several steps further, introducing political intrigue, societal oppression, and assassins of the English language.

It takes a few key steps back, however, when it leaves out the KICKING THE SHIT OUT OF YOUR OPPONENT part.

IMDB says the guy who wrote and directed this mess also wrote Die Hard. Yeah right. We want proof.

I think I made my feelings for Street Fighter on the 'this week on DVDPodblast' post, so I'll skip all that and just say this one thing.


D, please tell me you've seen the highly awesome Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged series on the youtubes.

People still play Yu-Gi-Oh? I did not know that. Do they still play Magic: The Gathering too?

And I saw Grindhouse today, and noticed that Mo Henry was in the credits. Is there any movie he HASN'T worked on?

How can anyone not be familiar with STREET FIGHTER 2 (the game)? What planet were you living on in the early 90s, PB Walsho?

If you had played the game though, you would actually see that the movie was an even bigger piece of crap than it first appeared because it completely and utterly destroyed the premise and coolness of the game.

SF2 fans cried - yes cried - when they saw this abomination.

PS. Ryu and Ken in this movies sucked. They looked nothing like the video game characters.

PPS. In the game, Bison has enough upper body muscle to crush Arnold Schwarzenegger. So yeah - cast skinny ass Raul "Gomez" Julia.

PPPS. I thought the guy who played Ryu was in TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 2. I was wrong.

Thanks, guys. Another good one, and I'm enjoying the suspense at the beginning of these blasts as the group waits to find out what manner of poo is about to pour over them.

P.S. Saw Click this weekend. You have, have, have to blast that piece of crap. By far the worst thing Adam Sandler has ever done - even Kate Beckinsale in her sexy litle pyjama shorts couldn't save it.

The most suspenseful moment in PodBLAST history...

I was practically biting my nails when Bill was quietly going through De Souza's IMDB page. I was waiting for his reaction when he found out that this guy wrote our beloved DIE HARD.

I feared Bill would be overcome with despair and throw himself out of the nearest window.

It's almost as bad as when you find out McTiernan directed ROLLERBALL.
