oh i thought this was going to be a thread on the hilarious movie and not just some bearded white guy on youtube
when even reading the title is too much effort

this guy's deconstruction of Suicide Squad is fun, so I'll check this out but I've not seen the Street Fighter 2 movie

There's a video there.

Presumably it's worth talking about.

More so than the title or whether or not you care about youtubers.

Yeah, he's legit. He defended the good qualities of many bad movies.
I think it's less him defending the good qualities and moreso his distaste for the lack of nuance or critical thinking in popular online criticism. No video of his exemplifies this more than his video about Annihilation and the countless videos trying to analyze the ending as a plot to be solved, rather than the movie simply being an exploration of theme.

This movie is amazing because of how bad it is. Chris Kline was no doubt high the entire time he shot this movie, he's mesmerizing.
NASH OUT!

It was such a terrible movie it was amazing. It also got just about everything wrong from the games. Balrog uses a gun, Gen uses fireballs etc. it was all wrong. The most amazing thing is the most accurate portrayal of a street fighter character in the movie was Vega played by Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas. How did he end up being the most accurate!?

Edit: In checking the movie's wikipedia page I just found out that Bison's daughter was named Rose. Why would you bother to include her in such a wrong way?

I've have to check this out even though all I've ever seen of this movie is the best of Chris Kline video posted. I'm not about to go watch Legend of Chun Li so I have better context for this video, but it's almost disappointing.

Honestly the thing that still surprises me is that this was a 2009 movie and not a movie from the early 2000s or late 90s.

Like this came out a year after Iron Man...

I remember at the time that the screenwritter Justin Marks name was popular among nerd circles, since he was working on this movie, Voltron, He-Man and a Green Arrow movie called "Supermax", and those who dared to review the scripts online said they were good. Then the Chun-Li movie was released...

He seems to be doing fine, tough. And has added a few more movies to his credit since then.

I just watched this video.

My god I had no idea this movie was this kind of bad. So Bison is a blonde Irishman who bare-handedly tears his unborn child out of the mother's womb in order to get rid of his "goodness."

what the fuck.

Why does this exist.
How can anyone shoot this script.
And why is the screenwriter still getting work.

One of the most interesting things to me about this movie (besides how baffling it is) is that when it was released in Japan on theaters it was apparently double-billed with a Sakura short made by the same team that produced Ties that Bind and the cutscenes on vanilla SF4.

To my knowledge this short never saw a home release, maybe someone out there has a copy?

It's an amazingly absurd origin story. There's also the question how a guy, who is capable of doing that to his wife, would have any "goodness" in him in the first place. After all they don't mean this figuratively, he's literally transferring his "goodness"

My friend briefly thought I had a particular fetish because of this movie.

This barely has to do with anything, it's just that the thought keeps coming to mind.
