Mortal Kombat: Legacy (Live Action) Web Series Review

I just watched this at the weekend after the series second season trailer came out (wow!). So apparently to adapt a video game into anything remotely good you have to launch a live action web series. Granted this web series isn’t perfect but it was much better than I thought it would be and definitely better than the last film they made of Mortal Kombat. I knew a little of the back stories from the games but not much and it was fun to see them played out as a prologue to the game. The fights in this are great and really fun to watch, my only complaint is I want more! The visuals are also strong in this series, costumes and settings where impressively realistic in their appearance. The acting and dialogue was a little all over the place but wasn’t too bad, some were actually good but not most.

Best Films of 2012 – Part 1

It’s one of my amazing special posts, yay! (Nobody really cares, just look at the pretty pictures). Friday I will be posting a ‘Best of Christopher Nolan’ because of the Dark Knight Rises release.

Ok so we are now into the 7th month of the year so I thought I would put my favourite films of the year into monthly winners for the first half of 2012. Obviously part 2 won’t be coming out until January next year so keep an eye out for that when I will also reveal my winner of the year in genre categories (nobody really cares, just look at the pretty posters). Each winner is only put in a mini review but has been linked to the full reviews if you want to read more.

Prometheus (2012) Review

It’s a good Sci-Fi film with great acting and an interesting plot, but sadly it wasn’t a great Sci-Fi film and definitely wasn’t this generations Alien. But I would love to see a sequel which could easily fix the problems I found with this film.

The Thing (2011) Review

I originally thought that the prequel to John carpenters the thing would be a bitter disappointment, but I am glad to say that it wasn’t and that I really enjoyed this prequel. Paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) has traveled to the desolate region for the expedition of her lifetime. Joining a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbled across an extraterrestrial ship buried in the ice, she discovers an organism that seems to have died in the crash eons ago. But it is about to wake up. When a simple experiment frees the alien from its frozen prison, Kate must join the crew’s pilot, Carter (Joel Edgerton), to keep it from killing them off one at a time. And in this vast, intense land, a parasite that can mimic anything it touches will pit human against human as it tries to survive and flourish.
