Pokemon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew (2005)

This was kind of a nothing movie. Most conflict is set aside, immediately resolved, or forgotten. Lucario's in it, though! And lots of other pokemon! Maxie's rating: 1/3 Adaptation 1/26 Quality Dan's rating: 1/5 Adaptation 2/5 Quality Next month: Mortal Kombat (1995) Twitter | Discord Dan | Maxie

Street Fighter (1994)

For July we discuss the infamous Street Fighter movie! Unlike Super Mario Bros, this movie deserves its hate! Jean Claude Van Damme was paid 8 million dollars to be the worst character in the movie! Raul Julia spent the last months of his life giving his all as M. Bison! And most everyone else has managed to have a decent acting career despite being in this travesty! Is this movie fascist? Kinda! Our rating: 1/5 Adaptation 2/5 Film Next Month: Pokemon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew Twitter | Discord Dan | Maxie

Sonic the Hedgehog OVA (1996) (AKA Sonic the Hedgehog the Movie)

This month we celebrate Sonic's 30th anniversary with the Sonic OVA! This movie's got a lot going aesthetically, but gets a little incomprehensible and the plot eventually just devolves into DBZ fights. We also discuss e3, borderlands film news, and the Morton-Jenkel Cut. Dan's Rating: 4/5 Adaptation 4/5 Quality Maxie's Rating: 4/5 Adaptation, 5/5 Quality (Part 1) 2/5 Quality (Part 2) Next month: Street Fighter: The Movie Twitter | Discord Dan | Maxie

Super Mario Bros (1993)

In our inaugural episode, we discuss the ur-video game movie, Super Mario Bros! This movie is actually pretty good! Not perfect, but definitely good. Mario needs to trust the fungus, Luigi needs to learn to plumb, and Big Bertha needs more screentime.
