This will be the last in my talk of reboots because I just feel it's starting to get a bit monotious and I want to move on to the next two subjects coming up, so here I go. Well after the recent Motal Kombat reboot video game came out as well as an ongoing webseries going on right now "Mortal Kombat Legacy" there has been some talk and plans of a reboot to the Mortal Kombat movie franchise. I really like the first movie but the second movie really sucked and killed chances of there being a third Mortal Kombat movie. So here are a few things I would like to see happen.
1. Make the film rated R, because I want to see the over the top violence and fatalities. But most of all the dark fantasy atmosphere the game is based on.
2. Try to have more pratical effects and minimum CGI, nothing against CGI as long as it's done the right way.
3. Good casting as usual: Not sure who could play who may'be Micahel Jai White (Black Dimamite) can play Jax, Rain (Ninja Assasin) Lu Kang, Grace Park (Battlestar Galatica, Hawaii Five-O) Kitana, Jamie Barber (Battlestar Galatica) Curtis Striker, Katie Sarcoff (Battlestar Galatica) Sonia Blade; I know kinda spitballing but I really want the right people.
4. Well choragraphyed fights as well at the locations like in the game.
There also has been talk of a reboot to Robocop coming soon but unfortunately information has been scetchy at best. I love Robocop the first film is one of my top ten favorate sci-fi's and films in general. The second one I thought was good if not as good as the first. Though the third film really really really sucked! Sorry I had to be bold but that is how I feel about Robocop 3 which killed the franchise and killed chances of a proper 4 sequel. Here are some things I want to see.
1. Get the right director and scriptwriter: I heard they were going to have some unknown director and writer do the reboot. I know that sometimes unknowns can sometimes supprise us but when it comes to popular properties it's iffy. I personally want bothto have a cetain amount of experence to do this because I want the hand to be capable and qualified.
2. Get the right guy to play Alex Murphy/Robocop: I have no idea who could play the role but may'be Nathan Filion (Castle) or Tamoh Pickett (Battlestar Galatica), I know wild shots but I just don't want it to be a random unknown let alone a young pritty boy from the CW, heck no.
3. It has to be extremely violent with practical effects.
4. Have an evil robot or two to fight.
5. Most of all have a great story line and the satire to go with it, first one will set the standard but I was thinking for the second it could be based on Frank Miller's true "Robocop 2" script but if not then make it really dark where OCP has fraked up bad where Detroit City has litterally became a cesspool of crime and there is some terrorists that are building evil robots to take over the city and OCP and now Robocop has to kick major butt. I don't know something like that but just have a great story.
Well that's it for this reboot arc, if you have comments please leave them and I'll be back for a couple more articles.
