Should you watch the first one before seeing this one?

As Annihilation essentially invalidates the relevance of the first film within the opening minutes, not really, no.

Nice to see Gavin made a cameo in this episode.

I’m honestly surprised Conrad went to a Gwar show?

The alien cum tastes a bit like bath soap tbh.

I was a big fan, up until Hunter Jackson left Slave Pit and the music shifted into a much more hardcore metal direction. I still have a shirt covered in fake blood and the band’s signatures from the second GWAR show I attended.

YoDude

I actually liked that move into the harder sound set I’ll be honest. I’ve only seen them once. They were headlining a show. I went in there knowing a bit of their stuff mostly going for the band right before them.

They put on a fun show though. My Waster Tee still has green and red stains.

A big part of my attraction to GWAR was them being silly and experimental. I’ve never much been into metal, really.

Jim. The four armed catman is Kintaro from Mortal Kombat II.

This podcast was excellent. Sounds like a good candidate for RLM’s Best of the Worst. I’m eagerly anticipating the Ratchet and Clank review.

Here is hilarious story in retrospect: My cousins and I first watched this movie as a rental on VHS probably a year after it came out. On the copy we watched, the tape ended mid way through Raiden telling everyone how prude he was of everyone in the final good byes after the final fight. No credits, the tape just ended and the VCR just began to rewind the tape. As far as I’m aware, this was an actual copy of the movie and not some bootleg from Blockbuster though I could be wrong. If it wasn’t a bootleg, the… Read more »

Sat watching it for the first time. It’s even worse than you described it.
I can’t stop laughing.

A. the centurion pig. I had to pause and laugh because I know exactly who you meant.

This is a surprisingly fun movie. I’m actually enjoying it.

Watching James Stanton on Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997) is like watching James Rolfe on Hong Kong 97.

Conrad’s description of James Remar as the guy you hire if you can’t get Lance Henrikson does describe his appearance in Vs/All Superheroes Must Die. Remar also played Ajax in The Warrior’s which in hindsight sounds like a character out of Mortal Kombat.

Jim, I am INFINITELY disappointed. How is it that this episode isn’t tagged

“Wait a minute; that tattoo… I’ve seen it before; on a robot and a woman. They both tried to kill me.”

I’m likely way to late for the party for this but here is an interesting bit of info. Jim and Conrad at the end point out their was no real sequel hook at the end, well there actually was supposed to be originally. In a deleted scene before the big final fight, there was a scene where Shinnok went to the Neatherrealm to give Quan Chi his amulet just in case anything went wrong. Now think about, Shinnok returns as a fallen Elder God, Quan Chi as his “loyal” henchmen, Raiden now a Elder God, They were clearly wanting to… Read more »

This looks like it’s gonna be a good podcast. Almost reaching Pixels length.

For the love of christmas Jim – please do a review of BloodSurf or Double Dragon the movie. I thought these movies were awful even when i was a kid

We did Double Dragon almost a year ago now.

Brilliant! thanks for letting me know Conrad, I must have missed that one! But yeh – BloodSurf – you wont be disappointed……….actually you will its bloody awful!

I loved the episode! But again, I really, really hope you guys stop peppering in the politics. I agree with you guys but I’m trying to relax to your podcast and hearing more politics really dismays me. I just want to have fun with your podcasts. Put the politics in their own section if you want to talk about them a lot.

“I had thought – I had been told – that a ‘funny’ thing is a thing of a goodness. It isn’t. Not ever is it funny to the person it happens to. Like that sheriff without his pants. The goodness is in the laughing itself. I grok it is a bravery … and a sharing … against pain and sorrow and defeat.” – Valentine Michael Smith

I’d prefer more politics myself.. along with a healthy dose of religion!

I’d say so long as every episode Jim reminds us that abortion should be legal because he hates babies things will be great.

When the world stops being terrible, maybe they’ll stop making jokes about it. Anyone who is surprised by Jim and Conrad making political jokes at this point isn’t paying attention.

Aleks Storlid
Guest

Surprised? Not the slightest. 1, The world will never stop being terrible. 2. I’m not throwing shade, it’s their podcast.

To this movie’s(and the games’) credit, japanese war fans are a real thing, they served for two purposes, they were given to soldiers so that they could use the fans to cool themselves off from marching, and they were a weapon on their own to make sure the soldiers always had a weapon at hand in case of an ambush, and to serve as holdout weapons for Samurai in places that weapons weren’t allowed, if a tanto were to be found it would be easily identifiable as a weapon, but even if the fans were found, the Samurai can just… Read more »

Shit I decided to watch The Room that Jim mentioned in this Podcast, and holy fucking shit! Starring, produced, written and directed by Tommy Wiseau, with just about the weirdest super bad and sleazy (borderline creepy) acting I’ve ever seen outside of porn.comment image

drownedsummer
Guest
I’m curious how many people know that Jim has kind of interviewed Wiseau? Wiseau had a show related to gaming on Machinima a few years back. Holmes and Jim interviewed him about this show where if I recall Wiseau comes across as someone who barely knew anything about games in general. It was a pre-recorded interview which featured in an episode of Podtoid. They discuss the first episode of his show in a later Podtoid. Which as it is only ten episodes either suggests it was only contracted for a few episodes or quickly fell apart. As Wiseau mentioned rather… Read more »

It’s Podtoid 168 I believe.

It is indeed as it’s in the title on Podbay, which was down when I posted about it.

Chris Schwartz-Brown

Seriously? I mean I get that it’s not a universal appeal, but ‘so bad it’s good’ isn’t something that’s limited to Jim. I love the Room precisely because it is so painfully awful in so many hilarious ways. It’s a fascinating train wreck.

But at least you rated it as being objectively exactly the same as Yooka-Laylee

I have to say it since you were praising his work; Robin Shou (Liu Kang) was also credited as the fight choreographer.
Again, where did the budget go?

Chris Schwartz-Brown
Member

I am baffled by that budget, I had always assumed that this one was as…interesting as it is because the budget had been slashed to hell after the first one. Maybe that terrible, terrible CG was way more expensive than we give it credit for at the time? Either that or this was some kind of The Producers style scheme to make as bad and as cheap a movie as possible and steal the rest of the budget somehow.

Wellsy487

I think at the time people thought the CGI looked good.

Chris Schwartz-Brown

I remember 1997, and I don’t think we did.

That tatoo… I’ve seen it before… on two Movie Boys… they both tried to kill me!

George

This is one of the funniest episodes! So many memories. I think i was 12 when I saw this and I just thought it was so confusing but I loved seeing all the characters.

Brian Thompson as Shao Khan was a delight. He was in first Episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
