Dear god! Why? WHY?!

Recommended Posts

I win epic fail. I wanted to celebrate this thread and watch that street fighter movie with Van Damme in it. I ended up downloading the animated movie, in the mp4 format, in chinese, with some other language's subtitles. Oh yeah.


Least it wasn't Swedish Porn.

that...did you limewire it or something? if it was a torrent, it shoulda been labeled, that's shit.

Nah, it was torrented dude, I just didn't really pay much close attention. You think you type in street fighter movie and grab something it won't be THAT bad. Well, it will, but not screwed up like that.

I liked the original (it wasn't great, I think it would have worked better in the time frame of a Twilight Zone episode, rather than a feature, but it was good nonetheless. It was really all about the payoff of the last lines.


I am leaving soon, and you will forgive me if I speak bluntly. The universe grows smaller every day, and the threat of aggression by any group, anywhere, can no longer be tolerated. There must be security for all, or no one is secure. Now, this does not mean giving up any freedom, except the freedom to act irresponsibly. Your ancestors knew this when they made laws to govern themselves and hired policemen to enforce them. We, of the other planets, have long accepted this principle. We have an organization for the mutual protection of all planets and for the complete elimination of aggression. The test of any such higher authority is, of course, the police force that supports it. For our policemen, we created a race of robots. Their function is to patrol the planets in spaceships like this one and preserve the peace. In matters of aggression, we have given them absolute power over us. This power cannot be revoked. At the first sign of violence, they act automatically against the aggressor. The penalty for provoking their action is too terrible to risk. The result is, we live in peace, without arms or armies, secure in the knowledge that we are free from aggression and war. Free to pursue more... profitable enterprises. Now, we do not pretend to have achieved perfection, but we do have a system, and it works. I came here to give you these facts. It is no concern of ours how you run your own planet, but if you threaten to extend your violence, this Earth of yours will be reduced to a burned-out cinder. Your choice is simple: join us and live in peace, or pursue your present course and face obliteration. We shall be waiting for your answer. The decision rests with you.


Reeves makes sense as Klaatu...he generally does better when he's not supposed to express emotion. On the imdb page Kathy Bates is the only actor listed without a character name, she is third billed, and Gort is not named. So, if in fact Kathy Bates is Gort, this movie will be worth the price of admission if no other reason than that. Also, John Cleese is in it. I need to see a trailer for this.

its not that I Am Legend was a bad film, it just ran in a completely fucking different direction and missed the point of the classic story. its like watching Hellblazer; film was alright but it woudlve been better under a different name, cause it wasnt that story.
