Early in the morning I felt like listening some "Guile's theme" on youtube and eventually it got stuck in my head. So today I've decided it's "Guile's theme" day.

It has been sporadically turning on and off in my head. Kept me entertained, happy and all in all in high spirits.

So later in the forenoon I've decide to watch a movie I've basically known about ever since it was made, but never seen it. I've watched trailer when it was about to come out, dammit.
So this movie was Street Fighter from 1994.

And you know what.
I don't care how much it differs from it's source work.
I was honestly, without hint of doubt, with my mind and body NOT being subjected to any sort of drug(s) - having a BLAST.
It was one of more entertaining movies I've seen in a while.
Back when action movies were just awesome. Pure, refined, silly, awesome action. When it made sense to be called action movies.
Where good guys beat bad guys, where both good and bad guys throw witty one-liners at each other, where things are sometimes there just for the sake of being there or sometimes even don't make any sense at all AND THAT MAKES SENSE, LIKE, TOTALLY, where you have a bit of drama, a bit of bad-guys-turning-good, where you have smexy dudes and smexy bewbs, flying kicks, armpit-smelling punches, crazy battle-cries-while-doing-crazy-jumps... and you have JCVD.

I'm effin buying DVD. Heck, a Blue-ray. This is just genius piece of cinematic artwork and it deserves a place next to the likes of Robocop, Snatch, Crank 1&2 and Dredd.

Funny, I just watched Dredd and then the Stallone Judge Dredd. I like what they were doing with Dredd (2012) but Judge Dredd (1995) has a better city and wackier funtime action.

Consider adding Demolition Man to your shelf.

Street Fighter from 1994.

Oh yeah, Raul Julia, the only person involved to realize he's in an awful, awful movie and have fun with that.

Couldn't agree more. I still like Dredd 2012 the best. :3

That feeling when you have half a gallon of cheeseburger curry - and that's what you couldn't fit into your tupperware.

In the days when Sussman was a novice, Minsky once came to him as he sat hacking at the PDP-6.
“What are you doing?”, asked Minsky. “I am training a randomly wired neural net to play Tic-Tac-Toe” Sussman replied. “Why is the net wired randomly?”, asked Minsky. “I do not want it to have any preconceptions of how to play”, Sussman said.
Minsky then shut his eyes. “Why do you close your eyes?”, Sussman asked his teacher.
“So that the room will be empty.”
At that moment, Sussman was enlightened.

I don't know why, but specifically when I sit down to eat Indian food I think "I am going to turn this into poop." No other food elicits that train of thought.

Yeah, see, I think Judge Dredd (1995) could be quite decent movie. It has the right idea, or at least, many small ok ideas strewn across the movie. I only know little about Judge Dredd comic but I understand stupidities like Stalone posing as Dredd without helmet, but I also appreciate that distopic, oh-so-90's Megacity 1 design. But back a few years ago when I watched this movie again (or for the first time? Can't remember), I also spotted one of the banes of 90's movies - comic side-kick.
If there's one thing Judge Dredd could do without it's...that guy. I might watch it again soon for good/awful-times' sake though.
Hah, yeah, Demolition man. Fun movie. But from what I remember, I'd put Street Fighter way above it. Somehow, a lot of Sly's 90's movies have just that...strange feeling of directors trying to build a movie around the star but manage to forget to add just that little bit of flavor during the process. Well, not something movie industry would shy away from, especially in 90's, at least in my opinion.
But, dunno, currently, Street Fighter really stands above many such movies. It's just so...whimsical.
I mean, first time you see JCVD - he what, starts by throwing mean looks and then obscenities at the camera. Bison is an over the top dictator wannabe just like an evil mastermind from your favorite spy movie from 60's (with a hat for every occasion, heck, I bet they'd squeezed a man's length wide wardrobe devoted entirely for cloaks off the camera), ALL Zangief scenes are just pure gold and don't let me get started on those occasional silliness like "Napolen crossing the Alps" reference and things like that.

Street Fighter from 1994.

Yes, that's exactly what I'm talking about. It's positively hilarious.

I love this movie.
Mortal Kombat tomorrow I guess.

I still appreciated Dredd as a film in it's own right. It's very well put together.

Plus the actor was hot. >_>

I thought Dredd was a pretty good movie, definitely the best adaptation of the comic I've seen thus far, though really the only guy who could play Dredd himself would be Clint Eastwood. I think people would have more luck with another Dredd game with voice acting (done properly this time, not like Dredd vs Death) to be honest.

It's hard to adapt the style of the comics though. I haven't read as much Dredd as I would like but I'd say he's my favourite comic book character. Anything 2000AD really floats my boat. Strontium Dog was pretty rad as well.

I also really liked the old Action Comics. I've still got my Dad's collection with Major Easy and Joe Two-Beans and all that. Panzer G-Man was the best though.

My favourite story, if I remember it correctly, involved Panzer G-Man (who was some kind of Wehrmacht grenadier on the Eastern Front) out in some god forsaken snowy wasteland. He managed to take out a group of Red Army soldiers passing over his position by dipping his stick grenades in the icy water, then leaving them out for the Russians to find. When they grabbed ahold of the grenades to take them with them they were already primed, but they stuck to their hands and they couldn't throw them. They all blew up and Panzer G-Man just grimaced and lit a cigarette or something cool like that.

Well, I never really read the comics myself. And I don't plan on reading them, either. So s'all good.

I must also claim that Dredd is another Scottish invention. He's right up there with the television, tarmacadam, the telephone etc. Just putting it out there.

I think Karl Urban did excellent job as Dredd. Really made me more interested in other works he did, not counting LotR. Which, given he has a helmet over his head for an entire movie, should say something about how good I feel he represented the imposing presence that is Dredd.
Then again, that's just my humble opinion.

Mortal Kombat?

Word of warning: never watch MK Annihilation.
Oh, I've seen the warnings alright.
Actually had the pleasure of once catching a glimpse of the opening minutes of the movie. I think my father was beside me.

We stared in bafflement.

Still, I'll probably watch it one day. If not for any other reason than this scene.
