"Micthumtastic" = Now part of my vocabulary.
You know you poked the bear by writing about film, right? Now I've got to voice my opinions.
"Mortal Kombat" had some true "That was fucking awesome" moments. Unfortunately, they were few and far between and were tossed into a film that should resemble (in spirit, anyway) "Enter The Dragon", but fails miserably.
"Resident Evil" was a 14 million dollar movie. This was the price initially tossed at the Production Company (Screen Gems?). It ballooned to the mid-20's, I believe before it started to roll.
Interestingly enough, George Romero's draft of the film (http://www.residentevilfan.ws/umbrellacorp/media/script.html
) had a 12 million dollar tag attached to it, and the script (I read it years ago) was great. It included the shark, the Tyrant, all the things that made the first game great.
Strange they'd go with a film that ended up costing close to two times what they initially invested, when they could've just given Romero a nice average 15 million dollars and you would've pleased the game's fans, the legend's fans, and horror fans wouldn't have had to wait until "Bruiser" (see this if you haven't) came out for another Romero flick to drop.
Horrible films that spring to mind:
Just about every modern horror flick in recent memory (as you remember our discussion on my previous LJ entry).
"Date Movie" was God-awful, too.
