Does the failure of Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li mean we’ll never get that long-awaited Blanka biopic? We fail to answer these and other questions. Meanwhile, Stuart discusses how thugs benefit from Outlook and multi-tasking, Elliott explains how this movie would be right at home in classic Hollywood, and Dan reveals he knows far too much about lesbian vampires.

Hitting play gives me a “error opening file” message 🙁
Thanks for being vigilant. Usually I remember to check, but not today.
No, Thank you guys for giving me plenty o’ chuckles over the last couple of years.
If you guys want a great good-bad movie based on a fighting game, check out DOA: Dead Or Alive. It’s like a feature length series of cut-scenes from video games re-enacted with swimsuit models!
23:46 “…a Hong Kong action star to play this role” “Like Jackie Chan?” Surprisingly, Jackie Chan has in fact played Chun-Li.
