mortal-kombat-stillPrepare to test your might! With the arrival of the all-new, all-gory Mortal Kombat in theaters this week, we thought it was a perfect time to dip into the archives and revisit the movie that started it all, 1995’s Mortal Kombat (hereby redubbed Klassic Kombat). Watch along with us or just listen on its own as we delve into the history of the videogame adaptation and determine whether a quarter-century of time has been kind to it.

The MovieFilm Commentary Track: Superman II

Screen Shot 2021-03-16 at 9.18.55 PMForty years ago, we believed a man could fly…again. With this year marking the 40th anniversary of Superman II and this week marking the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the MovieFilm boys thought this was a perfect time to take a look back at the Man of Steel’s second big budget movie outing and the ways it foreshadowed what would happen with Justice League several decades later. Listen in as we watch the theatrical cut of Superman II while discussing the additions and subtractions from the Richard Donner cut, all while soaking in Chris Reeve’s second go at the cape-and-tights, and just generally soaking in the nostalgia of an era where a major metropolitan city getting utterly demolished was just good, clean fun.

The MovieFilm Commentary Track: Waterworld

WaterworldFor our latest commentary, the MovieFilm boys strap on our flippers and floaties and dive in to 1995’s Waterworld! The Kevin Costner sci-fi epic directed by Kevin Reynolds had a famously fraught production when it first came out, and we decided to look at it with a quarter century of hindsight to see if it was worth all the negative hubbub or whether it’s an overlooked gem that’s due for a reappraisal.

The MovieFilm Commentary Track: Darkman
