There was a recut of a trailer for the new game with this theme and it was just perfect. I really dont know why they dont give people what they want. How hard can it be to get the rights ?

I think I read somewhere that they said they tried it out with the new game but it wasn't as cool as they imagined it would be. I can see that being the case.

Not that I can remember. The actual MK1 theme was rather forgettable. SF2 was more known for the character themes than the title screen theme (though even that's more memorable than in MK). Killer Instinct had a pretty awesome theme.

If only mk1 was the only mk movie to ever release. If only mk never went 3d. I might still have nostalgia left over. I was such a huge god damn fan of mk until all of that and somehow, somewhere, street fighter, which is like the hot chick that I always passed up, because mk had personality, just stole my heart.

I still have way more nostalgia for sonic than I do mario though.

The movie was a goddamn pop cultural touchstone. Christopher Lamber cast as Raiden? It doesn't make any sense unless you were there, but if you were you understand it instinctively.

Too bad Gore Verbinski's BioShock got shelved. Apparently the studio heads didn't understand the concept and Verbinski's insistence on R rating for the movie sealed its fate. Really unfortunate that donkey crap like Meet the Spartans gets made and potentially good movie based on BioShock's universe doesn't. Prince of Persia and Silent Hill were decent though.

I have it as my character select music in Brawl, and it's awesome. Perfect character select screen music right there.

Its cool.

From MK, my favorite song was reptiles theme.

I do think the intro should make it into the new game though, the entire game is banking on so much nostalgia, it would make a perfect credits song.

The MK Movie stuff has been in the courts for years because of some asshole who thinks he owns the rights to it. I believe theres 3 separate lawsuits, WB won one of them but thats being appealed and I wouldn't expect any different from the other lawsuits.

Thats why WB is making a digital series and not an actual movie. If it wasn't for the lawsuits you can bet that there would be a Mortal Kombat movie coming out this summer or next summer starring Michael Jai White and Jeri Ryan.

For sure.

I'm so ready for an HD remake of Shaolin Monks now. I think if they could add online play and make that arena fight mode a 4 player online mode it would be killer.
