    Kids and I watched Mannequin in the school holidays.

    “Ohhhh Switcher...you’re one sick puppy.”

    We use that line, said in character, to show disdain in our family. Lol.

    “Do my thighs look too fat to you!?!” is another one.

    Or if we’re sneaking a snack - “Hollywood...Hollywood!!’

    Nerd that I am, I finally recently got an uncut studio version of Belinda Carlisle’s In My Wildest Dreams (opening titles song). Been chasing it 30+ years.

    I thought Nobody was too much like John Wick.

    Mortal Kombat (2021).

    I also watched the original last night - I actually really love it, just brings back lots of nostalgia.

    The new one is good IMO, it's just about what you're looking for in an MK movie.

    Some things in this new one that are way better than the original as you would probably expect, but I feel the original had just a bit more charm with the characters.

    I hope they do well and get to make a sequel.

    I haven’t seen John Wick, so I thought Nobody was pretty good.

    Saw it last night and really enjoyed it, I like how they made the most of that R rating and they managed to do justice to a lot of the classic characters.

    Shoutout to Josh Lawson for stealing the show as Kano.

    House (1986)

    Comedy / horror film. Deals with Vietnam Vet PTSE and haunted house tropes. Pretty dated in the FX now, but still worth watching for William Katt, George Wendt and Richard Moll. Probably ripe for a re-make. I have House 2 (1987) lined up for later.

    Mortal Kombat was delightfully violent. Kung Lao's fatality...oh my! Had to rewind and watch it again

    This week i've watched both Kong vs Godzilla and Mortal Kombat

    As far as dumb, shitty movies that make no f**king sense but are absolutely joyful... it's not close for me. Mortal Kombat kills. Just really enjoyed it start to finish. Kano hitting the "is that the only move you have?" got me proper LOL'ing
    Kano absolutely owned the film though. Just a delightful character.

    So dumb, so great. Scorpion saying "Get over here" was a real "Say the line, Bart" moment.
    God i enjoyed it

    Kanos character is what happens when you pick an actual australain and give dialogue that a smart assed australian would actually say and not what an american thinks they want them to sound like and end up completely butchering it

    I thought Mortal Kombat was pretty bad.

    Wooden acting, almost nothing plot that seems to jarringly jump all over the place, even mid-sentence sometimes.

    I'll agree that Kano was the highlight, by far and the opening and closing fights with sub and scorpion were enjoyable.

    All the rest ....... yikes.

    The fights were basically PG-13 until the fatalities as well, like power rangers fights.

    Granted, a couple of the fatalities were gleefully gory.

    5/10

    I’ll never understand this criticism of these sorts of films
    My guy, you’re watching Mortal Kombat... ain’t no one in these cinemas looking for character development, cohesive story telling/plot and Oscar winning acting

    Its not the Godfather
    It’s mortal kombat lol

    Yeah but they should be at least able to act well enough that it isn't jarring.

    The web series for example was cheesy also but it was still decently enough acted.

    This was mostly jarringly bad acting, outside of 2 or 3 of them.

    Nahhh actually to me the acting is secondary in a film like this to the actors ability to pull off the fight scenes.

    I thought they all went well with that....

    Heheh. I watched it too. It was fun enough.

    But yeah, watching the main guy (can’t remember his characters name) try and fumble through his dialogue was as ham-fisted as me trying to do a “fatality” 20 years ago in a Time Zone “super session”.

    I wasn’t expecting much. The Aussie guy gave a couple of good gags.

    I loved Godzilla vs Kong, kind of remind me watching those Saturday afternoon movies when I was a kid...
