Gatchaman,” scheduled for release in early 2009, originated in Japan in the early 1970s as the television series “Science Ninja Team Gatchaman.” Aired in the U.S. as “Battle of the Planets” and “G-Force,” it soon became a widely popular syndicated TV series.Featuring some of the most ambitious action sequences ever seen in animation, “Gatchaman” is set in a future world grappling with environmental and technological issues. The story focuses on five reluctant heroes whose remarkable genetic code makes them Earth’s only hope of defeating extra-terrestrial invaders.

Now I would not be who I am if I didn’t post something ASIAN ,or at least Anime related.Blood the last vampire is based on anime of the same name.I would personally go see this just for the action.

(500) Days of Summer

Sometimes the best movies are those that are not in the spotlight of big budgets.You know ..the movies that often end up at Sundance.Now I’m a guy and guys are not supposed to like romantic comedies.Not true.Quit often we just hate the way they’re done.This one might be the exception!

WHY I WON’T BE SEEING “STREETFIGHTER:THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI”

The only reason to see ‘Streetfighter” would be to see Kristin Kreuk kick some ass!

Plain and simple,that’s all there is to it.Kristin Kreuk is(for those who don’t know)  a fellow half Asian who is best known for her role as Lana Lang in ‘Smallville”.Now being half Asian doesn’t give me or anyone else the right of passage to play a martial arts guru,or be a martial arts expert!But if there is anyone to pull it off it would be Kristen.She does after all hold a purple belt in Shotokan Karate.

With that being said and out of the way.

Streetfighter..Streetfighter…Oh my goodness Streetfighter how I long to play thee with your classic dragon uppercut and your fireballs blazing..SHOOOO…YUKEN!But a classic video game franchise does not a good movie make.

Now with many genre’s there are fan-boys.And perhaps these fan-boys are the built in audience that might be going to see this movie(I did say MIGHT!).And maybe I’ll win the lottery tomorrow!

Movies based on video games have had a long sad history.Super Mario brothers,Doom,Double Dragon..and these are just the classics which were attempted!Even the Resident Evil movies did okay but soon got old after the Second movie.

Adding insult to an already injured genre,we have “STREETFIGHTER:THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI”.And to make things worst this is supposed to be a reboot for the the already horrible attempt back in 1994 of a Street Fighter movie.

Flamboyant Badness is the best way to describe the 1994 Streetfighter.Jean Claude Van Dame and his fellow actors were just BAD.So bad it was like a car accident you couldn’t help but look at.

I suppose this movie will be the same.At some point I will be sitting at home with nothing on TV and then bamn!..there it will be.And I’ll probably force myself to watch it because somewhere deep inside my geeky brain I want the movie to work,I want to be a fan of it,or maybe cuz I’m asian!

Could be  Kristin Kreuk!

In the end my money will not be spent to see this movie on the big screen or the small screen.I’ll admit I have seen all the movie’s I mentioned at some point in my life and even laughed a bit when I watched them.

But the sad fact is that the video game to movie bit is just not working..even when the story is good, something gets lost in the translation.
