FINALLY
I’ve been saying “C’mon, Existenz!” every two weeks, lol. The Cronenberg fangirl in me is pleased.

When Film Brain reviewed this movie he suggested that Chun-Li should have been playing Maya’s role and be the one working with Nash. Which would make sense since she’s supposed to be INTERPOL AND ALL. And that way Nash could actually have a purpose by interacting directly with Chun-Li. But then I guess it wouldn’t have the completely necessary title of sub plot then and then where would we be?

It is really bizarre that they would pick one of the characters with the most easily adapted backstory, INTERPOL agent out to stop bad guys, and then decide ‘naaah, that’s boring or dumb, let’s just make her a concert pianist who also happens to be a master martial artist who is out for generic Daddy issues revenge.’

See the funny thing is you might not be too far off. They probably did think that backstory was too simple and wanted to do something more interesting. And by interesting we of course mean ridiculous and completely generic.

I like how when Conrad mentions that “One Night in Bangkok” was from a musical written by the guy who did the lyrics for Cats, Jim recognizes the musical Cats, remembers that there is a song that involves the word “memory” in it, can’t remember how it goes exactly, and sings the first word to “The Way We Were.” It amused me greatly.

Any time Memories gets not sung, I can only feel gratitude.

I watched this mediocre but imo not technically bad film this morning especially for my favourite podcast. Chris Klein doing his best Keanu Reeves impersonation, Kristen Kreuk who is just too skinny to be plausible as a badass (she is 50% Chinese so at least they got that right), and the orphaned Irish guy who grew up in Bangkok but somehow still has an Irish accent… erm, yeah it’s definitely not good, but the imdb score of 3.7/10 seems a little harsh.
