This week’s greatest video of all time

It’s a well-known piece of trivia that Mortal Kombat was originally supposed to star Van Damme, but he chose to do something else instead.

Anyway, imagine what could’ve happened if he really did do Mortal Kombat! This video shows you what it’d be like.

I have to say, this is the single most outstanding video I’ve seen in a while. It’s hilarious, well-done, and panders to my ridiculous love of retro 2D games, midi music and over-the-top violence. Well done, TheVanDammeFan2009!

I LOVE IT SO MUCH I’VE WATCHED IT TWICE WHILE WRITING THIS BLOG POST!

For more goodness, check out the creator’s YouTube channel, where there’s other good stuff like Van Damme shooting Justin Bieber.


Stupid “Death by Water” scenes

It was raining lightly as I walked to work today, and as I dodged droplets of rain on my way to shelter, I realized how silly it was to avoid the rain, because it’s not going to kill me. My iPhone, maybe… but not me.

But while water might not have such an adverse reaction on me, I remembered that there were characters out there that are actually quite susceptible to water. Not holy water or acid, but regular normal water.

Sounds stupid, but read on!

1. The Alien from Signs

If you’re a race of aliens with a strong allergic reaction to water, would you invade a planet that is 70 percent water? If you’re conjured by the imagination of M Night Shyamalan, you would.

In a ridiculous twist of fate at the end of Signs, Joaquin Phoenix defeats an alien invader by smacking glasses of water onto him. Glasses of water conveniently left there by Abigail Breslin for a really weak reason.

Honestly, even if Joaquin hadn’t gotten his baseball bat and started smacking glasses of water on him, all the alien invaders would’ve had their skin melted away by rain. For a technologically advanced race, they’re not really geniuses are they?

“Let’s invade a planet that’s acidic to our flesh!”

2. Sub Zero

Here’s another stupid “death by water” prophecy scene: in the first Mortal Kombat movie, Liu Kang is repeatedly reminded by Kitana to “Use the element that brings life” to defeat his next opponent.

After a very boring fight scene (where their random wall flips and forward flips were more impressive than their sluggish kicks), Sub Zero starts to use his ice powers to slowly create a frost bubble field. I emphasize slowly, because not only did the whole set up take forever, but the field would grow at a snail’s pace. How is that field supposed to defeat anybody? A 3-legged dog could hobble away to safety and outrun that field!

Alas, Liu Kang doesn’t think to outrun the field and instead lies on his butt to nurse his elbow like a little girl. It takes Kitana to walk past and trigger a flashback voice-over before he has to audibly announce that he realizes that “WATER is the element that gives life” before flinging a conveniently located bucket of water at Sub Zero.

3. The Wicked Witch of the West

In the classic Wizard of Oz, Dorothy defeats the Wicked Witch by accidentally splashing water on her. There were no signs, no prophesies, no voice-over flashbacks from corset-wearing girls… there just happened to be a bucket of water conveniently lying around when Scarecrow was burning.

 

And guess what? Despite having no previous indications that the Wicked Witch was even slightly allergic to water, it melts her. The tiny splashes of water on her face melted her into nothing, as she exclaims “What a world!”

I know that in Wicked, it was all a ploy for Elphaba to escape from the totalitarian government, but still… the audiences in 1939 must have exclaimed a collective “WTF?” at that moment!

“I’m allergic to water? Since when?”


How is Mortal Kombat a tournament?

I saw the funniest thing on CollegeHumor today, about the way Mortal Kombat “tournaments” are structured.

WordPress doesn’t like Flash embeds, so you’ll need to click this link to view it.

Mortal Kombat Cage Subzero

When will Mortal Kombat become an Olympic sport?


Batman beats the crap out of Superman all over again!

If you didn’t get enough ass-kicking out of Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe, then there’s good news for you!

Nether Realm Studios, the guys who made the new Mortal Kombat reboot game (and pretty much the same guys that did MK vs DCU, except with a different name), just released this teaser for their new game Injustice: Gods Among Us. Which is pretty much Mortal Kombat, except purely for DC heroes like Superman, Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, and you know, all those other guys that weren’t in The Avengers.

Check it out!

But is it just me, or it kinda has the same vibe as the Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 trailer?


Most random L4D fanfilm ever

Those guys from Northern Five just made the most random Left 4 Dead video. Why random? Just watch up to the end and see the random cameos start appearing out of the woodwork!
