GET OVER HERE and listen to Episode 6 of the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast! In one corner, we have Don Shanahan, beloved 25YL film critic, badass dad, and long-suffering teacher. He fights for the soul of Mortal Kombat! In the other corner, we have Will Johnson, slightly hated 25YL film critic, goofy-ass dad, and brand-spanking-new teacher. He also fights for Mortal Kombat’s soul! So, wait, where is the Hissy Fit? The fatalities? Naw, they go the Friendship route here. It’s a DOUBLE LOVE edition!
Don and Will break down their teenage years watching the video-game-movie genre in its infancy, discuss the wonderful (and practical) use of a limited budget, the film’s phenomenal production design, and exquisite cinematography, the admittedly terrible application of CGI, as well as our expectations for 2021’s entry in the franchise.
So, without further ado, enjoy the sixth episode of Cinephile Hissy Fit and, if you are so inclined, follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook! We are very responsive there and will gladly answer any of your questions or engage in verbal kombat! Speaking ill of Samantha Robinson earns an instant FATALITY! Cinephile Hissy Fit is a 25YL production and part of the Ruminations Radio Network!
