      A good performance in a shit movie still means you're watching a shit movie. Better to watch MK and then follow it up with Addams Family Values if you want Jukiakino

    MK is conventionally good, but SF was good in a different way.

    Both are kino.

    Street Fighter, I don't think it's really all that close. But I can get it if someone likes Mortal Kombat more.

    Mortal Kombat: Closer to what it was trying to adopt, memorable soundtrack, forgettable/serviceable performances.

    Street Fighter: Barely like what it was adapting, great comedy, highly memorable performances

    Depends what you're in the mood for. 'Quick, change the channel!' is still one of my favorite jokes in a movie ever.

    >Street Fighter vs Mortal Kombat
    SF
    good
    Raul Julia as M. Bison

    very bad
    Van damme was horrendous, "whose with me" scene; none, you suck in this film.
    Robert Mammone as Carlos "Charlie" Blanka
    Most other characters were bad.

    MK
    better in everything but always a low-tier b-movie.

    good
    Christopher Lambert as Lord Rayden
    Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Shang Tsung
    Robin Shou as Liu Kang

    Both films needed all females to have amazing boobs and asses and to have just that role in the film. The others to have good appearance but in effect stand-ins for show.

    And just 1 or 2 named actors as the stars.

    MK was the better film with its soundtrack, cinematography and sets but SF is just way more fun all around.

    SF movie was meh, the only good thing about it was Bison. nu-MK is bad, the only good thing about it was the Scorpion-Subzero scenes.

    As a kid, MK was obviously superior. As an adult you learn to appreciate SF more. But MK is still the better film. It even changed the game lore and has one of the most iconic movie soundtracks of all time

        yeah, if you like accuracy to the source material you might enjoy it more than the movie

      The anime basically emulated and elevated SFII in every way. It had some edgy content, but it was welcome and still fit the universe and it made its straight-forward story more unpredictable. Also it had one hell of a finale - along with that shower scene in the middle.

      Also it's important to mention that it's dub only. It had both kino music selection as well as original music made for it. Ryu's theme is top tier. The nip version sounds schmalzy and gay with generic guitar work.

        I read that about the Ryu theme before but I can't watch dubs without getting the felling I'm watching Kung Pow. Are they at least serviceable?

      Yep, SF movei wasn't good but the SF II anime made up for it.

    What's this madness of anons saying SF is Kino?

    I only remember seeing it as a kid so my impressions are vague but MK just seems the obvious choice.

    Am I missing out, bros?

      Just good old 4chins contrarianism. Any kid that genuinely preferred SF to MK back then was a certified retard. MK has always been considered a classic while SF a complete joke saved later by funny internet maymays

      No, it's just autists trying to meme a bad movie into a cult classic. SF the movie was bad. Unlike all you zoomers I was actually alive when it got released and I've never seen a hype train go down in flames like that. Even kids didn't care about it.

      Raul Julia's death gave this movie some after the fact significance but that's really just sentimentality getting in the way of common sense. He blew the rest of the cast out of the water but it's not really a great performance, just a guy making chicken salad out of chickenshit. Kylie's ass is really the only legit memorable thing about that movie

        As I said before I was pretty young when I saw it but already as a kid I thought it looked like a SF themed Halloween party. I also remember Ryu and Ken just being two punks. Not to mention Van Damme was the funniest with the US flag tattoo

          Yeah you just need to look at the box office to see how people really felt. MK got great word of mouth, opened strong and stayed strong, Street Fighter barely even had an opening weekend because the trailers and commercials looked like ass and the people who actually did see it told everyone it sucked.

          These films aren't even operating on the same level. I mean, look at how MK handled Goro. A giant, non-human monster with 4 arms and they managed to translate that to live action fairly effectively. SF couldn't even get Blanka right. Seriously, they looked at pic related and said, "yeah, this will work." It was a fucking joke.

            I like the stuff

            said
            I was listening to a podcast with a stunt double/coordinator who directed this fan film. He says that unfaithful adaptations come from a place of
            >This would never work, we need to make it believable
            It's also why Legend Of Chun Li was some mid budget crime thriller with air blasts
            Based on all of the fan made making of documentaries for Street Fighter The Movie, where fans uncover loads of magazines and documents, the issue was that they got Jean Claude Van Damme and had to make the movie around him. Turning it into a G.I. Joe ripoff with martial arts elements. When in reality, with the Street Fighter story up to that point, this should've been much more Star Wars esque in terms of narrative approach. Something like Ken and Ryu being the leads entering into a world bigger and more fantastical than they expected would make more sense. But seemingly you can't tell that to a 1990s movie producer. It's probably why many genre movies nowadays are much more accurate, not prefect, because the producers were children when stuff like
            this were around

              Steven De La Souza (Writer of Commando and Die Hard) literally wrote the first draft over the weekend cuz they had a chance to pitch it to Capcom representatives visiting the US.

                Yeah, you're right. Should've remember that, but in general the approach to this movie and those vidya gaem films like them feels much more cynical rather than genuine. Like, why else is Guile the lead while the focal leads of the games to that point are supporting characters?

                I also think Mortal Kombat was better because the director was at the time a late 20 something who played the video games rather than a older aged hired gun who was working with what he was given. Though ironically, the former would become very hated for making an entire video game movie franchise that was nothing like the games

                As well as the MK creators running around hollywood for a MK movie

    SF has solid moments of comedic performance but it is not what the games were all about. MK made a compelling version of the game narrative and kept to a tone that fit. As much as I love Zangief and Bison in the film, and as much as Cammy is a ridiculous one woman coom army, it was trapped in that common space a lot of other game adaptations fall in where they’re eternally embarrassed by their source material.
