I published a new one As part of Piece at The dropout this evening. With the release of Mortal Kombat Over the weekend, it seemed like a good time to take a look at the iteration of the movie franchise from the early 1990s.
Certain Mortal Kombat: Annihilation is a much more interesting film than is often recognized. It’s an utter disaster in almost every way, but an illuminating one. Observed from two decades away destruction Often feels like a template for the kind of fan service blockbusters that we take for granted today with its broad themes “Family” and its plot, which primarily serves as an object on which continuity references and nostalgic calls could be artfully arranged.
