The Flop House: Episode #49 – Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li

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.
