"Was gonna bring up, I forgot to bring up was one, I don't think this is spoilers. I don't think people care. If you care about Mortal Kombat movie spoilers, then you should have watched the movie already, but also you know that Johnny cage is in that movie probably. There's that tease that Johnny cage is probably going to be in the next one. And I was thinking about that. And I was like, fuck, that's gonna save a lot of the movie for me, 'cause I wanna see Johnny cage and Libya screen again, but then also reminded of yesterday the statement that The Rock put out saying that he's bringing a movie to the big screen, or he's working on a movie, being brought to the big screen. Could you imagine The Rock as Johnny cage? That would be awesome. That would be good, especially when we know when we saw the writing that Kano had. I think they could really make like a super douchey asshole character that makes you laugh because of how much of a jerk they are. That would be amazing. That would be amazing. That said, I also would also put John Cena in there as a perfect Johnny cage. I think he would rock Johnny cage so hard, especially after watching peacemaker. Anyway, out today, we got a last Doe mania remastered for PS5 PS4 Xbox Series X slash S Xbox One and switch. Cake invaders for PS5 PS4 Xbox Series X Xbox One and switch. Summertime madness for Xbox One, gav gav Odyssey for Xbox One and PC.

In the meantime, we're working to tie up the last few loose ends and Polish some rough edges and are excited to get these out to you at the end of the month. This whole launch of the steam deck, it reminds me of like a KickStarter launch honestly. It just seems very formal, very unofficial. And they're like, oh yeah, it's like your valve.

Okay. Yeah, but if anyone changed their mind, they should let people know and slack just in case we want to change our mind, you know? What do you mean change our minds? We're all going to cancel our pre orders together. Yeah, maybe. Maybe I feel like maybe I deserve one. Here's all I want. Here's all I want, okay? 'cause I love my iPad, Kevin. Arcade, I wish Apple arcade had the offering of all the indie games that I can get on steam or the epic store. I wish those were, I wish it had that offering. All I want is a tablet blessing that I could just plug a controller into or Bluetooth theory or whatever. I don't want the laptop. Does the backbone fit in? No, 'cause I need the controller in my hand. I don't want to be doing this. I'd rather like on the plane hang it up there and then do the thing here, Kevin, you know what I mean? I don't like a handheld thing. I don't want to play. You want to be on the plane and turn your plane flight into a Best Buy kiosk. Yes. Yes. I do that every time, but I know that there are some Lenovo quick books or whatever the fuck these ultra books that are like super thin. I don't want to fold in thing with a keyboard. I just want to let me just plug a thing in, play a little indie game on there. I don't need anything too crazy. I'm not trying to play cyberpunk. I just want to play death's door. You know, those type of games. Similar any titles. I know we're going along on the show, and I should wrap up really soon. But am I doing too much? Because I'm going to buy the steam deck. I have that. I have money put down on that. I'm going to get the play date as well..

"All these things. But I don't ever hit anybody over the head with anything harder than basic calculations like basic trigonometry functions that you don't even have to understand. Well, maybe we could zoom in on your John Cage example. Yeah, John Cage would be totally different. Johnny cage, I think that's a Mortal Kombat reference, yeah? Oh, John Cage, the composer was a case. I feel the culture difference between his cow. Well, let's take that one's the example. What if I wanted to set out and do my own cage example and build that up? And I didn't have the ML background. You mentioned grabbing photos. I could figure that out. I can do some web crawling. What does it take to actually wire it up? How much ML do I need to bootstrap myself? So for identifying the person's face, the first thing here is that they're already existing models. So you have to understand what the AI is doing. So there's a fantastic article, but I think fun machine learning, which is what is facial identification actually doing. And so what actually it does is it goes in and identifies key points on the face. And then for facial verification, there's this moment where you actually realize normalized face, those key points on the face, despite how much I contrast and contour my face and how many funny faces, even if I'm Jim Carrey trying to make really fun faces, those average of all those points is somewhat uniquely identifying for me, that those would be at those distances from each other. So simply doing the AI gives you a set of points, and then you would just use basically the distance formula, which we all know. Well, if you don't, then that's okay. There's lots of libraries out there already doing it. And you do the distance formula for those points. And then that.

"Early two thousands of one kind of both set up to be like bad people or like weird monstrous mysterious people look at you right and subzero like freezes like and then like freezes you like he smashes you and you become blocks of ice right exactly so the i will say that. Without spoiling anything for people without seeing the new mortal combat center the center of the movie the remake is the rivalry between scorpion and sub zero. It's like the entire point of the movie. Is the rivalry between the two of them. And subzero is the bad guy and scorpion. Is the good guy. So i found that pretty interesting but a lot of people who who know the game obviously remember a lot of the characters. I founded actor for what it was. I found it very enjoyable. Not that it's a great movie or anything but like actually was very impressed by it because the expectations were pretty low. Watched it all the way straight. Start to finish. I have a quick mortal story. And then i wanna question for the group here. So i remember being at an arcade and it wasn't like i grew up in in queens. And there's an arcade in bayside new york at the bay terror. Shopping center in bayside queens. Called peter and games and i used to go there with my dad like once a week and play arcades but was not at this age this peter peps childhood favorite place. Maybe it was like an ocean city or something. I don't know anyway at this arcade. And i'm probably like what. When did mortal kombat malik. Ninety three ninety four. Like i was just gonna say mid ninety s. I think he covered. I think it was. Yeah so let's maybe like ten fighters to i think had to be like ninety two ninety three ninety one ninety one right there. You go the more two years later. I remember because i had like my ninth birthday party at peter pan and the only game that i played the entire time streetfighter. Everyone else playing other games. I just destroyed everyone with charnley spanning the kick button over and over again. But i walked over to the arcade. And i must have been ten and i'm short now and i were shorter then and i remember walking up and there was a teenager. Couldn't tell you what he looked like. Tall tall jerk probably vote wearing a varsity jacket. Probably played football dated the cheerleader. The jacket of moron. And i walk over and put my quarter and while he's playing and he like looks literally looks down a lot taller than me. And just like scotts and be like playing the game kid right and then like it's like all right. Well i remember something to the effect of like. I'm going to beat you and you're going to have to get off. You're going to have to leave now. And then i use johnny cage and just spammed him with the uppercut jumping next to him and cutting him over and over again imperfect whites and he grumbled off and walked off like an off one of the great moments of my life. Honestly love it. You were dying to tell that story on the show today makes you happy just the way you tell it. Yes we says. Bill rarely in life..

"There is this crazy kind. Of like i would say. There are many parts in this movie that feel like crouching tiger hidden dragon with like the wire work and things like that and i think that's a style that he kind of picked up later in the movie and then but when we first meet him he is doing a lot of this crazy. Jackie chan type action. I'm talking about in the trailer. We see the subway scene where aquafina not subway. The bus seen rocco fina is driving the bus. That's out of control. And he's fighting razor fist on the bus. And we've all seen that on the trailer and that is very like jackie chan like i mean not as far as like his performance being comical although aquafina is very funny but just the way he kind of moves in some of the stuff that he does. It feels very jackie chan. Watching that scene. And i'll tell you one thing wants. That scene starts with the whole boss when the musical score kicks in it is fucking awesome and it gets you pumped to watch. This is really awesome. But yeah there's definitely different fighting styles in this and very crouching tiger hidden dragon. I also felt like it's it's not it's not it's almost raid level like but you don't get the the blood. There is a little bit of blood in this movie but it you don't get like massive amounts of blood and all the bone crunching bone bone breakage that you'd get in a raid movie but it feels very much like arrayed movie as far as like of the different stances in the way that they do fight and i swear there's this the bias and i square to you. He does a flying kick and it looks just like johnny cage's shadow kick from mortal kombat and it is fucking awesome. I i lost my shit when i saw that. So wait man. Yeah quinton quinton roberts from the real zodiac podcast asks. Does the movie move forward or is it purely an origin story. It's both it's both It's an origin story. But it's not purely in origin story and it but it does move the mc you forward where. I can't really get into that so but yes it does there is..
"johnny cage" Discussed on The Qwipster Film Review Podcast
"Personality in cage would have shifted way too much focus away from coal young story arc and also filling in some of that braggadocio that johnny cage would have had is cain so you would have had to white characters with plenty of that larger than life egotism and comic relief in this film in one film so they didn't want it to completely get away from the story arc that they were trying to present for the first film aggressor happened at conceive of the reboot for as the first of a trilogy so he wanted to set this film. Prior to the tournament the second film would be the tournament and then the third film would be the aftermath. So there's no tournament here. So mortal kombat delivers plenty of action in the second half despite it though you have a lot of prolonged mealey's punctuated by those gruesome fatalities producer. Todd garner considers the demand for johnny cage. As a big reason that the studio and fans might come back for more so this was kind of a gamble they would keep johnny cage out hoping that this film would be popular enough that people would clamor for more and we clamor for johnny cage. That would push it over the finish line to get into production. They hope that the fans would like the first film for the suits at warner brothers to allow an expansion to the universe. Similar to marvel wanted this a spin off not just into a sequel but to other properties as well delve deeper into the mortal combat mythology. With maybe a miniseries for hbo max. Or maybe solo stories solo movies of some of the more popular characters like cabal or lou king and the monks. Or maybe a war film. That featured sonya blade. And jack's garner envisioned future entries with somebody like ryan reynolds may be playing johnny cage. Or gal gadot eschaton who also is not in this film. Maybe they could get solo adventures before they join. Tassone did reveal that..

"Yeah it was a guy on the stairs. Joe shoots three times and it's like point blank shoots him. I don't think the guy new windows remember in. I don't know. I mean we've all seen mortal combat right. So do you remember when casts guests on right so remember when the introduced johnny cage and he he gives the guy a jumping roundhouse kick to the face. Yeah he says this is the part where you're supposed to fall down. That should have happened in this movie when he shoots these henchmen. Are you die now. I shot three times. You're dead movies. So then zadar takes out a newsy and just start shooting. Everyone even his own men and then throws a grenade under one of the cars. And then leaves. And jill and frank celebrates the murders. I i don't understand with a grenade when they toss it. I believe joan. Frank runaway inches. Leave the guy there instead of grabbing him you know. Let him blow up well. He's probably dead at that point. The darshana everybody. Everyone does really bad special effects things exploding on shirt as he was shot but they they actually blow up the car which i was kinda surprised that and that's the first kind of awkward scene between joe and frank when they talk about frank being black. Charcoal your ass. You'd have to worry about that. Only ended the they high five over it. The time. Five worthy frank back the precinct captains having some sort of mental breakdown and joe goes back to the restaurant talk. Jennifer tries to figure out her relationship the fujiyama.

I i don't know not i don't care i mean the the roster so large and they only showed view characters. Didn't get to see my favorites. Like johnny cage or Man i like. I i was a big fan of now and i feel like kay is represented as like a shitty asshole who you shouldn't like but by the fact that there is no other interesting characters you have to root for the like racist asshole personality so yeah shang sung is like i want you to strike but i you have to take down rate in shield at his headquarters so yes. It's the same thing that the heroes have to do injustice league but backwards. It's the villains doing it now. And it's weird because and k ball cabal hates kaneohe. He hates them and reserve former colleagues from colleagues. And you get the feeling that that a cabal. Who's in like a suit of living. Like cyborg mad max outfit. And he says he is an iron lung. Yeah that that kaneohe probably put him in that situation. But so so cabal visits k- no and i'm like so the shield that being them he did. That didn't bother him when he went in. Just it's one thing for like there's a shield keeping spec so go in there during the shield off okay or we're just like it's not that big an issue really slowly really slow one at a time things get you. And he's like no. You should shut down that shield and turn into a bad guy and kaneohe does exactly that and shane sunk shows up. Meanwhile who shows up at.

And i feel like he got hit somewhere in there. But i have to reject the tapes. I mean me this life bar go down any. That's the thing you got to figure out. Well he might even take chip damage on on block. It just depends on the attack. He was blocking that also that they tend to be pretty clear that they kind of all make up the rules. Judge themselves the way shang songs like kill all of my competitors beforehand and hung lau is just when you're judging your own match of course it's going to be a flawless victory like come on. There's there's no way it's kohl's fighting goro. Kohl's wife talk about how you know. Yes another thing to me like this vanessa. Like for instance. I like no i know. He's a wild card. I know he's going to bring us down naturally but this is where the laziness of the motion picture annoyed me. 'cause literally guys like up look at. Hey cato cato you might would be fuck fucking. Hey 'tatoes like all right. That was it like that. There was no sense of like kay. No drama no. No no hiccup. No challenge no need to be seduced. Because i thought they could at least play that a little longer like keno maybe with him like slowly creeping around guest seduction of kano. Now is that not a film mortal kombat colon the seduction of house. Kabbalah laid out on pillows..

You liked like real young sam but there was nothing special about that. Well in my opinion even the fact that he had that he was passing. That bloodline was like gregory.

"Just people like what did you expect over mortal kombat movie. I was like fun camp violent but fun can yes right like either. Do a good story or do fun. Camp don't give me. I don't even know what it was their story like. They couldn't decide it like they wanted to go to this super like almost realistic fighting style in that like early medieval feudal japan sort of period. And then they suddenly wanted to bounce toward like doing fatalities from the game you know directly sound effects and they just ping pong back and forth and i did not work pick one or the other but those really bad like like not like fun one but like the like eddies punisher like nineties. Punisher the really early Longer lundgren. I believe it is like where it's just like it's not even reviewable stuff to it. It's just like bad and not entertaining at like low budget in terrible and like the editor reasonably high budget. I would assume but like everything else about it was like it was the worst movie. I've seen it. It made batman versus versus man. Look well-considered what's no never never watched batman versus superman. But i am. I am willing to agree with that. Statement why they invented a new protagonist who they basically gave the role johnny cage and at the end. He's like. I'm going to go to hollywood and be johnny cage. And it's like they do johnny cage. That's why do we just do lou. The protagonist protagonist power was. He was really good at getting beat up so he gets metal skin but not in his face and then everyone insists only punching him in his medal ribs instead of his face for the rest of the movie. Even goro who had forearms us all four of them to punch him in the sternum. This movie does not sound so and you would think it would be fun with all this rightly at least stupid and it's like it's just like come on give me something. Give me a wink wink at me. Please it was so it was so weird and then there was just like bizarre stuff like they get these Kind of pseudo brands. That are like the mortal combat logo mark them as like earth's champions. Like okay. I can dig that and that is supposed to be what grains them their magical powers you know as fireballs whatever. Okay i can dig that. But then jack's gets these little puny robot arms and then when he unlocks his like a magical potential. They grow into big bulky. Beefy robot arms like that's his magical power can show us like and sonia spent the entire movie really really wishing she could have magical powers and then she gets her magical powers at like. It's more likely once before this more twenty twenty one than her powers were she shoot speaking some kind of energy speaking of sonia. I noticed in her first couple scenes as man. Something sounds weird with her accent..

"She got probably upwards of like thirty movies and this includes like live action and animated but a number of those that are actually about people coming together and fighting in a tournament. One on one that is rare. That's the great white buffalo of this subject so insane. How hard is that. The bucket execute. Yeah so what's the game about well. People hate the super mario brothers movie. And it's like well. What's mario about. I don't know man this fucking guy. And he's collecting stuff at he jumps on people and it's it's weird but this is very simple okay and the giants scrolling text in the beginning. It lays it out for us at all this room bubba every fifty years generation blah blah blah. They gotta fight. They have tournament they fight. And the bad guys win they get to invade earth and enslave so the good guys have to win great easy simple streetfighter. There's a tournament. Everybody comes together they kick each other's ass and the winner is crowd. The world warrior tournament champion. It's all of this as simple. Do you exists. People understand the idea of fighting tournaments and people will winning lights. These are normal ideas. I for some reason. These movies treat these really insane concepts like a fight is when two individuals are more disagree physically. Was this desire to because you're coming off of like two decades of action films where this would be a inacceptable setup for a simple low budget action film where it's just like all this guy's going to enter a karate tournament we'll really lose and then when they get into the nineties and they have these properties want to adapt. They like totally. Forget that this is a way you can approach a low budget action movie. The is how about if we make it about a dictator streetfighter. Movie great example. It's like okay. So john claude. Van damme did blood sport. Which is why you hired him for the lead role in street fighter and somehow you did not just mimic blood sport. I don't fucking understand that. I just have to put in so no one screams in the comments. But yes jean claude. Van damme was originally supposed to be in a video game by midway which she turned down eventually was supposed to rip out bloodsport because he did not appear it. Became mortal combat. they're also pointed. Al sarah the johnny cage connection. Frankly could have been could have been john. Yes claude van cage but yeah..

"Yeah absolutely I yeah. I think i think nine hundred five king is my favorite. If we're doing any drafting right now. Nineteen ninety-five is winning so far bonking all the points. Oh absolutely But yeah he. He's got that nobleness about him. And i think it played very well in the nineteen ninety five version because you had the characters being very distinct so you could. You could imagine how they would play off each other. So he didn't come off as so fractious. Because you had the balancing flavors of johnny cage's willa sonya blade right Let's move onto. Johnny cage played by linden ashby. And then we have chris conrad and annihilation. Joe maceio In scorpions avenge. And i don't believe he's in the twenty twenty one vision. No tease of the end of the twenty two and then So how did you feel about the nineteen ninety five. John cage thing care for him because i felt like the story revolved rightly sore on lee. Hang and wanted it to be that so any other character. They always just a bonus ball. If i had to pick a favorite it would be and skopje's revenge. I think that was the best portrayal of johnny cage today. Yeah absolutely and we love. Joe mchale with his. Hi buck crap. Yeah i find in almost all of these films that we've watched. There's always a transfer of one particular character baying the comic relief and unfortunately when you're going with bailey dimension comic relief means one liners and johnny cage. Was that in one thousand nine hundred five like i could have done without him I didn't even find it. Satisfying funny when. He fell with his For design of luggage off the boat when they first get to the island i just. I didn't careful johnny cage. But then i also knew that was the sort of character that he was as well what i did like about it though was at least he could fight so at least he gets. Some sort of credence is somewhere right. Yeah true speaking about credence is. Let's talk about shang song. Play by who you gonna. We have archive footage and annihilation butler in scope and chin-han in the two thousand twenty one version. How did you feel about shang song in the ninety nine vision i feel accused defeated a bit too easily. Oh absolutely a regardless of lee can being you know one of the best of luck. He brings a lot more to the table. And that's why he's the rajon mansion shao kahn. You know he wouldn't speak some some jingling idiot and that's all i thank you sort of portrayed as in this that we know his powers from the game play at not coming into this movie fresh with know everything about these characters to some extent some are some are going well for my perspective and that's why it's called for your reference mate and and to me as like i expected more from him not to be defeated. I easily but we did get some moments was calling for. Because when i was watching this i was thinking all men. Are we going to get to see. Louis can do some of the stuff that we know he can do. Now we go those moments. I'll wait to easily baugh shagman. He's his just his batas he. He's supposed to be bad ass where told he's bad as point you to one of the final scenes in the nineteen ninety five film way talks about capturing a thousand souls and there were like five the focus on bringing me out be like.

Oh absolutely and you know we talk a lot about dimension but these characters a literal characters. Right johnny cage's fucking annoying but he's also self absorbed and that's what he is as a character right. You have come loud. That is very very serious. Kung lao is my favorite.

Really just the most recent film and you have guile in streetfighter like yeah we can talk about dimension if we wanted to but when it comes to video games you want them to be completely different yet. That wouldn't motherfucker in ticket right They even had obey like you want video games to be fun. You get the most ridiculous sort of characters whether be mortal kombat street fighter tekken because you wanna have fun you want to sit around with your cousins and your mates and you wanna bash each others heads through the screen but then it turned into a real life bashing of each other right and yeah. I absolutely agree here. Fully thoroughly enjoyed it re watching it. It was just one of those moments where you sort of forget because it was in the back of my mind especially after watching the most recent one ui we saw been playing. More combi lavenham playstation. Little memories back but just watching the not five version man. oh absolutely. This was a first time. What's for me I tried to play mortal combat when my older brothers weren't around i wasn't necessarily officially allowed to play mortal combat But this was the time. I wish to ninety ninety five vision and who who i fucking loved it Like you said there's so much campinas to it. But i love that was campinas because there is a dynamic within mortal kombat specifically way. You obviously have the kerr to it. Vogue volga goal but also at the same time. You have the goofiness in the comic relief as well right. I do believe that. There is a very Delicate balance in regards to mortal combat. I pay the gratuitous gore and vogue innis of it all..

"Two dollars and then she turns to enter. Have the money. I live in this house. Delivery is poor. It's not funny. I'm not disputing that for me. The movie was disappointment. Screen disappointment it was a terrible movie. But did tell you right now. That doesn't mean that it's not going to do well because if it does well. Hbo max and if it does will enough in the theaters we are going to see an extension of this universe. It's a simple set. But i mean even if they do bring in johnny cage. They're rumors that us at the end. I'm saying there were rumors right now. That are supposed to bring them. Wwe superstar the myths. No that's where he wants he's asking for. Yeah i mean right now. It seems because of others. In there w superstar contract with john cena and the rock. And and i don't see the ms coming in maybe but still what are the characters could bring on taro. I mean they've already made up one with coal lead character who is descended of scorpion but will not be taking up the scorpion mantle As i thought he would be. But if you watch the movie. Yeah he's not taking up the scorpio mantle. He's is own character. they created. They might as well create some more new ones specifically for the movies. They have enough characters. It is getting disagree with you. But i'm just saying if they did it once they could do it already. I mean i know that cole was supposed to be descended of scorpion. And i got that because i got what he said at the end. But that doesn't seem to matter. I know there was another sub zero. When i know the scorpion. The mantles i get all that but everybody. Who's who's died. As far as on the bad side. They're coming back for a sequel because they were all at the end. Anybody who died is going to get magic leave brought back in the sequel liberty.

Say he's reading tabloid suggests that johnny cage is one big phony so he offers him information on the tournament that will prove that he is not a fraud. I would love the audience too. And it's no if master boy. It's somehow in the mortal kombat work because the way they introduce him is. You're supposed to know who that guy is right. Yeah at least you're supposed to know who the actor cameo meatloaf that is. I don't think it's meatloaf no it's not but that when i first saw me thinking it was eric bana. Yeah i know it's not me. Look who that was fun fact that was also supposed to be steven. Spielberg her dual dual characters. They really wanted him in this movie so they just kept offering. You want to be this guy. Be this guy. There's literally no no mention of him ever again in the games in any other movies ever. I don't think he's ever mentioned in the game. He doesn't look like he knows. Martial arts either. No he knows. Tiger schulmann's martial arts. He just like some overweight out of shape guy who may be back in the day was good just like telling kids right kids to you know you know punch each other sounds good and then just kinda smokes a cigarette in in the corner..
"johnny cage" Discussed on Pond's Feed
"He is the replacement for giant cage in that pissed off some mortal kombat fans and i brought up the Youtube bills guy name robert storm. He was someone who is very angry. And he said yeah. This is big betrayal do more comma fans. You don't really understand the property because you don't have my johnny cage in there now for those. Who don't know more comment again. I'm not the biggest the deepest fan of it. I only seen the original movie. The animated films plates couple of the games. So i don't have the best knowledge. But based on what i do know. This is a hollywood actor. Famed hollywood actor absurd. He gets wound up into the mortal kombat tournament thing like oh this is a neat little special movie ghoneim and cool realize realizes halfway in await notices this is real this is not a film special effects and everything honestly though. I'm going to be very controversial myself. Based on what. I know what had played or what i what i watched. I'm not really crazy about the character. Because i feel like that's all he is what i saw. The animated film came out last year. Scorpions revenge which is where they made a rated r. more combat movie johnny cage in that he got on my nerves. 'cause always vowed like hey look at here is that what's this new plague on. What's the script like. He's making a bunch of lake movie references and jokes. Like oh did you get. Did the budget the budget. What's going on here. All i like these effects although he doesn't evictees complained so much. Oh these effects suck. That's all his character is like. I don't really know much of them. Besides what he is not getting more comments. Not the deepest narrada. Like from what i know the like most of the games. They're all cheesy but still does based on what he is. I mean there's so many movie characters like kim. I feel like you would be for someone who would not know anything about moral combat. They would look at johnny cage. John cage was the protagonist of the film. They would compare the so much too. Big trouble china or along that line and kind of thinking about it. I the one thing. I don't really like from what the director said l. Say were. I am on middle ground with mr storms. Here is that he mentioned wanting to make a sequel 'cause when he goes into detail on why john cage is not as film because he's like playing for partout and i'm like await. This movie isn't out yet. You gotta let people see it to see. Make enough money for you to make a sequel by. You're coming in betting on it all right. So i'm guessing this film was going to end in a finger assumed by that common butts when he talks about not wanting johnny cage as protagonists. He said all that would feel very uncomfortable. Because this is a very asian centric world here with a bunch of characters to have a white lead be the main representative everything and honestly. I agree with that completely but i also. I didn't think about this even deeper. We don't seem to take into account. The amount of asian films are supposed to be meant for to star or support asian culture and yet they're led by someone who's not asian and it still happens. Recently i mean the most controversial one is the ghost in the shell film were they had. They had a white woman play when the film eventually reveals the be japanese character. And i look at this on the actor here. Plays cole young. I think this is something we should also note. This actor tried to play iron-fist in net flicks markle show iron-fist and they rejected him. He'd three times in favor for fin jones. Who was horrible..
"johnny cage" Discussed on Pop Culture Leftovers
"I want to say it's like the eleventh or something like that. Yeah yeah yeah. It's it's called insert coin. It's a it's a documentary. It's the oral history of a team of geeks and misfits in the back of a chicago factory. Creating the biggest video games mortal kombat nba jam and others of all time. So this is a documentary about williams bally midway and i'll make guide lake like we talked about the last blockbuster the the nostalgia there this brought me back with a ton of nostalgia because these are games that i would play for hours and i'm talking about all these games. They talked about pretty much. Are games that i would say i would. I would frequent the arcade and play and one of the first games that they talked about. That was one of the most successful games. Was the video game. Narc which was like you. Were playing two guys with that. We're going around shooting drug dealers. And i played this shit out of narc back in the day. I mean that game dude. I like and we're talking about like these like williams this video game company out of chicago. I grew up in around the area which is like two and a half three hours south of chicago. So these games hit us very early. And at our aladdin's castle at at the arcade. And all these games every fucking even some of the fucking williams games that they didn't talk about in this documentary. I played you know they talked about. Nba jam. I remember playing. Hit the ice which was like their hockey version of nba jam. I would play. Hit the ice all the time. I was a huge fan of hit. The ice i fucking gush about this documentary. But i want to hear what you have to say dan. What did you think about the coin. I liked it a lot. This is one of those movies where i was watching it. I had a few distraction. So i do have skeleton of this and i need to go back and watch again because again you're trigger in the style even things that weren't necessarily related to what they were talking about. They would just maybe dropped a reference for instance. What i'm talking about is when they started getting into the The digital digitalization of body parts and things that you can throw into games and make them look a little more real. They had mentioned a game called journey. Which is about the band journey. I don't know if any of you guys played this game. There should be a seven eleven down the street to block this game up all the time so it was just. It was just cool to see that. Like seeing like the tron games and the back. There's this one seven eleven. It was like journey tron and the game called tempest. So oh my god yes. That was the good ship man. And i just it was just nice to kind of relive that again but i learned a lot on this one because at the time. I wasn't a video games. But i was. I was sort of starting to my interest changing. You know what i mean. So the mortal combat thing. I was totally involved in. But i missed its inception and i miss the big boom when it came out. I always appreciate it. I was it was a big thing but to hear the story of how it came out. And you know how it started off being a filler game to be the next thing like the precipitation narc and the whole story about like the van damme involvement in how he was being a dick about. Fuck van damme. Just make your own game literally. I lost my. He was supposed to be the johnny cage character. Right johnny cage in the game is the actor and that knows martial arts then comes from the martial arts movies and they wanted to get a real martial arts actor so they asked john claude van damme to be. Can you imagine a world. Where fucking jean claude. Van damme was the act. Like you're playing mortal kombat him and it does it doesn't it doesn't it doesn't say johnny cage it says c. up their you-zhong club. Damn here's the thing steve. Do you think there was a tinge tinge of regret. That jean claude van damme did not participate in mortal combat. Because by the time. We're in the year in one thousand nine hundred ninety four john claude. Van damme is the starring role in a movie called street fighter. All out he missed opportunity. He knows he missed the boat in mortal kombat he would have been immortalized in the mortal combat video game. The problem is i don't know because for lightning strike all the components have to be exactly the way they are. He's on the game. Does it take away from all the other crazy insane characters that are on the game like since johnny cage. Was this johnny cage. It also brought a total spotlight. On everyone that's a wild and nutso character is just jon. Call they're down. They're paying attention to all the rest of paying attention like the reason that it was so good because because all of them had sub zero. And who knows if you don damage johnny cage. Are you gonna put as much work into sub zero and scorpion and everyone else or you just got to focus on that guy. What's crazy is though. Jean claude van like even the character of luke cage in the video game does the fucking nut punch with the splits wasn't a big big into world combat. I used to. I just didn't like by the time. I started playing knucklehead. Kids while i was a kid knucklehead. Kids like me. They already knew all the move. So canada practice like you get in there and just be killed within a second and a half. Oh you guys are already way so far ahead of me that i'm not even gonna play this thing. There's certain there's certain games though that the only way you get better is is playing people that are better than you. That's true right. That's totally true. It's just mortal combat. Didn't fill it because they were so good. You didn't got get dude. I remember that dude. I remember plane fucking mortal combat in grocery stores like fucking back in the daylight. They used to have video games out in the front like when you walk into a walmart. They used to have video games out there. I remember fucking i remember. My mom would go shopping for groceries. And i'd be i'd be playing mortal combat. Yeah mike away. I'll give it a tupperware. Actually but the thing is is that. I'm going to enjoy listening you guys more because i will admit that when all of this was going on i was kind of going out of it so to go back and watch it. It's like oh. Yeah that's cool and i. I didn't know that but i want to hear it from the guys that were. They're playing at the time dude. I yeah i give it a total tupperware totally prince dowager and i just love a good success story. I love the ups and downs. I like these like i said earlier. These lower budget documentaries that. Tell this amazing story of something like this and these games are still with us. Still making mortal kombat games and it's just It's gotten bigger than its own name. You know what i mean so the fuck i loved when they talked about. Nba jam because that my game like that was nba. Jam was the game. I mean i remember like it was like me and my buddy we would go and fucking play. Nba jam and we are bulls fan. But i wasn't playing the bulls. I was with three point shooter. In my buddy was fucking. He was the big man on the inside. So we'd play the orlando magic. He was all day. Everyone everyone played orlando. I was scott skulls and he was shack. Everyone could you remember how you would put darn.
