This month on At Least You Tried we’re living dangerously. Instead of having a regular theme for the month each member of our little group is bringing a pick of their own each week and we’re putting them all on a spinner. This sounds simple and fun except we’re doing it with a bit of a “Russian roulette” type twist. Along with each of our pick’s we’re putting a “Bullet” pick on the spinner as well. These bullet picks are going to be just some of the worst of the worst movies we can imagine. Week one’s bullet pick was “Freddy got fingered” and thankfully we avoided it.
The winner this week was Jonathan and his pick was Mortal Kombat Annihilation, a movie sitting at 3% on Rotten Tomatoes and fully deserving that rating. This movie is a train wreck and includes multiple instances of:
-Characters entering and leaving the movie at a rapid pace, clearly only put there to market toys. The whole roster is almost included.
-Awful CG animation put alongside live action. The original Mortal Kombat was no piece of art itself but this movie somehow manages to take a step backwards from the ridiculous CG of the original. We see multiple CG dragons eat fighters, burp, and even one skeletal dragon have it’s ass punched by Jax.
-Henchmen for an evil overlord armed only with sticks… Conquering Earth realm with sticks
This movie is a mess and while nostalgia helped us get through it I don’t recommend it to anyone who hasn’t played the video games or seen the original movie.
