twinkieafternoon Why is it that grim n gritty was over in comics by the 2000s, but whenever comics are adapted to film, the films adapt the grim n gritty make-it-darker style almost always?
StanleyPain I think what I love about this new MK direction is how it is so aggressively bland and boring compared to the original. It goes from "fantasy realm where mystical fighters compete across the cosmos" to "ALL THE VILLAINS ARE CRIMINALS AND THE GOOD GUYS ARE COPS."
Mister Yuck The thing I love is how space/time in the warehouse deforms to meet the needs of the protagonists. Truly they are powerful wizards.
B. Weed I'm not sure grim 'n' gritty's quite over in comics yet, to be honest.
fatatty Yeah, why the fuck is Mortal Kombat a cops and robbers shoot out in a warehouse? Did someone give them a copy of Max Payne to use as reference?
