Dad looked down at me sitting criss-cross applesauce on the floor below him and smiled like a happy, proud father. I looked up at him, smiling, and noticed the break in his focus, so I kicked him in the face. There was so much blood that I started laughing. He got up off the ground, seemingly unphased. With reptile-like agility, he ran up to me and gave me an uppercut so hard that my feet virtually left the ground. I recovered quickly and noticed that Pops had backed himself against the wall. Taking into account that he had nowhere to go, I gave him a series of sweep kicks (it was almost unfair) until it was time to finish him. While he stood there dazed, I walked up to him and tore his head and spinal column clean out of his body.
"Dad! I did it! I tore your head off! Mom, come look at Dad's headless body!" I yelled with youthful glee.
"Wow! Great job, Bud. Look, his body is still standing without the head! Oh, nope there it goes." said Mom.
"This is bullsh--...this is B.S. He's nine years old! How does he keep beating me?" Asked Dad.
And that is the story of my first Mortal Kombat Fatality.
So, what prompted this blood soaked trip down memory lane? Today a trailer pertaining to a Mortal Kombat project appeared on Youtube, and I've got to say I'm pretty damn intrigued. There has been a little talk of a Mortal Kombat movie project floating around, so this could be the real deal. Take a look:
But, I also read a while back that the minds behind the MK video game were looking for a way to reboot the franchise, so this may be it. We've seen some very high quality short videos associated with video games in the past; Niell Blomkamp's Halo featurettes and the recent Call of Duty: Modern Warefare videos. It's possible that fans are being prepped for a revamped Mortal Kombat videogame franchise.
Personally,I'm more inclined to think that it's for a game, but I would be happy if it were either. I enjoyed the first Mortal Kombat film, but the second was so awful that I almost retired my Nintendo. It would be great if they could create a legit movie using a video game concept (for once). But, I also want to freeze someone and break them into little pieces like I did back in the good old days.
What did you think of the video? Do you want an Mk movie or a game? Or would you be happier with neither?
