    THUNDER FORCE!, starring an overweight woman of no color and an overweight woman of color. From the Wikipedia entry (Infogalactic silent on this one so far):

    When Melissa McCarthy’s character convinces Octavia Spencer’s character (BLM) to take a half-hour nap from studying in 1993, she accidentally causes BLM to oversleep and wake up late for an *AP* exam, straining their relationship and causing them to drift apart.

    This movie sounds hilarious already, Herald of No Color! Pick this one please!

      I thought you were joking. I really did.

      “Time to google it. Oh, it’s a superhero movie. Okay, that guy was just making it up because that sounds plausibly stupid for a Current Year film.”

      *start scanning the plot summary*

    Watched both trailers. No one should be arm-twisted into Thunder Thigh Force.

    Mortal Kombat.

    Mortal K-

    “So which one will I suffer through for you sadistic amusement.”

    Changed my mind. Thunderforce.

    MK. At least it can be compared to the better ’90s film.

    MK definitely. Thunder Force is just too easy of a target and it doesn’t need any publicity.

    I wouldn’t have my worst enemy go through the pain of Thunder Force. Mortal Kombat is at least watchable enough not to give you a brain aneurysm.

    Thunder Force will make you claw your eyes out. While MK is just mediocre.

    I watched the first 30 minutes of Thunder Force. My recommendation: avoid it like the plague.

    Mortal Kombat. No one should have to suffer through Melissa McCarthy attempting to act and be funny.

    Thunder Force; you could write a book on the poster alone.

    Critical Drinker suffered through Thunder Force, and I can only conscience asking one expert liver murderer to take on such a task.

    Mortal Kombat may be awful, but it might entertain in places.

    Our sadistic pleasure = you watch Thunder Force.
    I started watching it out of morbid curiosity, not expecting much at all, but I didn’t even bother to finish.
    I want to force somebody else to finish it!

    Mortal Kombat please

    I want to pretend that hidden figgers is no more

    I Think of Thunder Force as a drinking game where yo take a shot everytime an SHW trope is shown or spoken. There may have been one smirk in the whole thing. It made McCarthy’S ‘Superintelligence’ seem like an Oscar winner in Comparison. Go with MK.

      You mean McCarthy was in a previous film and after seeing her acting (anti-) talent, they *still* hired her to star in another movie?

      Wow. Just wow.
      Don’t they know it’s much more efficient and “Earth-friendly” to just shred the bales of money and compost it for plants?

        She and her director husband, Ben Falcone are a package deal. The first movie they ever made together was Tammy. RT scores were 24% Critical and 36% Audience.

        However, it pulled down $100 million against a budget of $20 million. They immediately got another film deal. They have made five films together and pulled down similar numbers (last movie launched during Covid so nobody counts it). So long as the budget is low enough, she was enough “fans” to make her profitable if not record breaking.

    Mortal combat. Thunder force sounds awful and I seem pretty sure I watched the drinker video.

    What have you ever done to me to deserve having to watch Thunder Force?

    MK, please.

    Mortal Kombat! I am writing a review for it myself. Some things you can point out: (Some spoilers ahead)

    Despite the fact that the franchise has a massive cast of 64 characters, they invented a new character for the main protagonist intead of turning him into a well known iconic one, which would have been more epic. (The characters gain their powers as the movie progresses)

    The entire movie and mortal kombat franchise is based around a tournamet, yet the tournament doesn’t take place at all. All the fights are outside the tournament.

    Sonya gets her powers at the very end of the movie. She practically doesn’t use them. A pity for such an iconic character.

    The turned reptile into a creature from jurassic park instead of a fighter.

    Raiden has a broken, OP ability which allows him to teleport anyone anywhere, which makes the good guy’s comeback way too easy. (He just teleports each hero right next to thevillain they want to defeat)

    I have watched Mortal Kombat and there is no good reason for anyone else to watch it. Its better than streetfighter, It is better than Mario whatever (the one with bob hoskins) and it dose not give you rabies, so 3 positive things. Watch Thunder Force.
