Mortal Kombat is probably one of the most faithful video game adaptations ever made, as of 2015 at least. It takes the paper-thin characters, the confusing and convoluted plot, and the creepy-architecture-plus-candles-plus-Buddhist-Monk aesthetics that the games have made themselves known for. It doesn’t have the level of brutal violence that the series is known for, since it’s only PG-13, but everything else about the series carries over very nicely.

Life sucks sometimes.
As you noticed, there were no posts on HCAD yesterday, marking our first-ever contentless day. Not a good thing at all! I (Thedude3445) had not one, but two posts scheduled for yesterday, including the continuously-delayed The Martian article, but yesterday turned into a complete bust very quickly, and I couldn’t do a thing about it.
With all luck, that’ll be the only non-posting day for a very long time. This week ends “Theweek3445” and resumes posting from both Kenny and me. We have a lot of good stuff planned for the week. And while my thoughts on The Martian didn’t come on Friday or Sunday as promised, they will come sometime this week. Possibly today, if we are lucky.
The ACTUAL Movie Club article for this week will be: Mortal Kombat, the 1995 movie directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.
