Street Fighter  
Hey gang... -Trys, hope you don't mind me jumping in here-

Street Fighter is among us!!

I just got back from seeing it. I have thoughts.

Neal, I love you forever.
NEVER do an Irish accent again. Please. o.O

It's really not a spoiler that I know of. If you disagree, I'm happy to put it behind a cut.

Though the brother and I did *giggleSNORT* the entire time...

So, let's call this the SF thread, yes? :)

P.S. As for the "big question"... I'll leave that comment below. :D

There WILL be spoilers in the comments. You have been warned.

Guile really gets his revenge on for NASH?! That was something I knew the first movie had altered to streamline the characters, but the thought of Guile wasting his vengeance fury on that schmuck makes me want to cry.

Swedish chick? I haven't kept up with the video game series. The only girls I knew were Chun-Li and Cammie (British).

The first Street Fighter I adored for it's campy charm, and Raul was having so much fun unleashing his inner megalomaniac. Eventually I grew to admire it's scriptwriters for being able to pull together an ensemble cast that large without losing most of the characters. Mortal Kombat II tried and epic!failed. (When Christopher Lambert won't be in your sequel, there are issues.) But if there was fan fury over the first not being true to the games, it ought to look Oscar worthy in comparison.

And no offense to Moon, because I thought she did an excellent job with her material, but everything with her and Nash--aside from the heads scene--should have hit the cutting room floor. Asking as a writer, what purpose do those scenes serve? Prove Bison is a bad guy? All the other Bison scenes covered that one thoroughly. Prove Bison was international? Speaking everyone's native tongue at the dinner meeting proved that one. We need to have more guns for storming the compound, so we need to set up these characters. Shipping container scene did that and proved Bison has a sick sense of humor. :p

It's movies like this that A) make me write fanfiction and B) make me wish that Hollywood would do casting calls on script ideas to the various fandoms. Seriously, you'd get a lot of crap in the submissions but that's why you hire interns. Writers who understand the characters, universe, can give it whatever unique spin got the producer and studio interested, and can write scripts would surface if they would give it a try.

Have I told you lately that I love you? :)

Because I do. A LOT.

I still want to see the original, for I love Raul Julia.

The brother said there was a Swedish chick (maybe Russian) I just remember there being a blonde on Marvel vs Capcom 2

No idea... I'm actually trying to plot out a fic.. but I don't know if I can do it.. It'll be short, regardless ;)

Aw, you're making me blush.

My copy of the first Street Fighter came out of the cheap DVD bins at Wal-Mart a few years back, so it is available on DVD. I just don't know how easy it would be to score one now. If copying DVDs was available to me, I'd send you one but alas, I have no DVD burner.

Was Rose speaking Swedish? That was the only language I didn't peg. Gen is Shoalin. I heard translating-the-scroll Chinese lady say "Shoalin" when talking about the Order of the Web. And yes, I did have a crush on Peter Caine many moons ago.

I've only really played the old Street Fighter 2 and the brand new Street Fighter 4, but yeah, Guile's always trying to get revenge on Bison for killing his war buddy Nash.

And Rose is a game character and actually does have the good part of Bison's soul, but she has purple hair, isn't actually his daughter, and hails from Italy.
