Recapture Our Ninja Turtles Arcade Childhood

There’s a new Ninja Turtles game coming out that appears to be a love letter to that classic TMNT arcade game from our glorious youth! Shredder’s Revenge comes out…this year, maybe? Will hopefully be 4-player co-op, and basically is just a recreation of all of our childhoods!

Looks amazing. That original TMNT arcade cabinet was the highlight of my youth, and, I assume, all of yours. It was the perfect arcade game. Four players, each turtle just a little bit different, a lot of chances to pour quarters away; it was perfection. So heck yeah, let’s get a recreation on modern consoles! Let us bask in that fleeting nostalgia, transporting us back to a time when all that mattered was getting past Rocksteady.

Hook it to my freakin’ veins!

6 Characters I Want to See in the Mortal Kombat Movie

The day will soon be upon us when we have a new live action Mortal Kombat movie to enjoy. The movie has been pretty quiet — until last week, when the first trailer dropped and blew all of our minds! What a great trailer! The Mortal Kombat movie looks pretty damn good!

If they’re on the poster, why aren’t they the stars of the movie?

Even more exciting about the trailer was the number of character cameos sprinkled throughout. We knew the likes of Liu Kang, Sub-Zero and Raiden were going to be in the movie — along with an original character named Cole, for some reason — but we saw glimpses of Reptile, Goro, Nitara and more! How exciting! I love the whole roster of Mortal Kombat characters. It was a geeky obsession of mine when I was a kid. So if this movie does indeed feature a ton of character cameos, I have a few suggestions.

Join me after the jump for the Mortal Kombat characters I really, really, really want to see show up in the new movie!

The New Mortal Kombat Move is Just Going For It!

At long last, the first trailer for the new live action Mortal Kombat movie has arrived. And jeez louise, people, this movie is just going for it! They’re not being the least bit subtle. Just live action Mortal Kombat in all its glory!

I’m sharing the trailer here on my blog, but it’s a red band, so you may need to just click the link through to YouTube to watch. It’s definitely worth the trouble!

I don’t even know where to begin with this trailer! We saw a bunch of posters for characters yesterday, but clearly the movie is going to be chockful of Mortal Kombat characters. We saw Goro, we saw Reptile, and I think we saw my boy Smoke at one point! And that’s not mentioning all the main characters, like Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Liu Kang, Jax and a billion others! Again, this movie is just going for it!

Digital effects simply weren’t up to snuff back when the first movie came out. Perhaps now we’re ready!

Mortal Kombat comes to theaters and/or HBO Max on April 16!

Remember Sonic the Hedgehog? He’s Back, in LEGO Form

The LEGO Ideas brand has given us some amazing sets, like Voltron and Doctor Who and…Big Bang Theory? Well they’re back with a Sonic the Hedgehog set! Based off Green Hill Zone!

Loop-dee-loop!

I think it looks neat! I’m really digging that Robotnik mech. And the whole aesthetic is just great. Though I’m disappointed we don’t get Tails or Knuckles mini-figures! Give us more mini-figures!

So much going fast

LEGO also announced a new Ideas set based off Van Gogh’s Starry Night, but who cares about that when we’ve got Sonic the Hedgehog! In LEGO form!

What a world, what a world.

Honestly, I Think I Liked the Street Fighter Movie

It’s been a couple years since I last rewatched the live action Street Fighter movie, but I’m pretty sure I liked it. I guess it’s not a masterpiece or anything, perhaps not even a good movie. But hey, it exists!

Honest Trailers continues to not have any new movies to make videos about, so we’re doing classics. More power to them, I say! We all need something with our lives these days.

Also, did you know Ming-Na Wen played Chun-Li in this movie? Neat!
