DOA: Dead or Alive (2006)
Based on the video game of the same name, it's a film with a risky concept: Gather four hot women (Holly Valance, Devon Aoki, Sarah Carter, Jaime Pressly), put them in as little clothes as possible, and have them fight each other! Luckily for Cecil, the concept works, making for one of the best video game adaptations ever.How The Killing Joke ruined Batgirl

“Once I made up a drinking game based around this movie. One of the rules was that you took a drink every time Cloud looked moody. Alcohol poisoning usually set in around the thirty-minute mark.”Why long-awaited sequels are never that good
“If you’ve been waiting decades for the return of your favorite franchises, there’s a good chance you’ll be pleased by what’s coming in the next few years. But there’s a much better chance you won’t, because it’s all going to be terrible.”
Double Dragon (1994)
Loosely based on the arcade game of the same name, Double Dragon stars Party of Five's Scott Wolf and future Iron Chef host Mark Dacascos as two interracial brothers living in post-apocalyptic Los Angeles in the far-flung year of 2007. With the help of Alyssa Milano, they protect one-half of an ancient Chinese talisman from falling into the hands of crime lord Robert Patrick, who will stop at nothing to reassemble the medallion and gain absolute power.Pretty Deadly
“Since Image Comics recently announced the production of a second arc, I made it a point to give it a try. The verdict? I have no idea how to feel. My brain is screaming ‘status code: 400’.”
