Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix…

Posted in Animation, Movies, Video Games on November 22, 2008 by Matt

Here’s a trailer for the upcoming game for Xbox360 and Playstation 3.  The old school style of fighting returns with updated graphics on the next-gen consoles.  What makes the trailer so awesome is that the game clips reminiscent of the end tournament in The Karate Kid (1984), it even features the song “You’re the Best”

“You’re the best, arooooound…”

And here’s a clip of Daniel-san Larusso fighting his way through the jerks from the Cobra Kai Dojo.

Oldboy…

I have a very bad feeling about this one.  Will Smith who previously stared in the film adaptation of what was supposed to be a very good vampire story (I Am Legend), if they had left it as is and didn’t completely butcher it.  Now, Smith is teaming up with Steven Spielberg (I believe for the first time) to film the U.S. version of Oldboy.  This will probably mean that they are going to take a story, that’s violent and very disturbing, and tone it down to a PG-13 rating.  If the elevator fight scene is used in the movie, Smith’s character will most likely recite something along the lines of, “Welcome to Miami!” or “Welcome to Earth”, before proceeding to incapacitate 30 henchmen.  Who knows…  Anyways, I really liked Oldboy (Korean version), and hope that they decide to stay pretty faithful to how the story is supposed to be told without any changes being made.

It has been stated by Smith that this will be an adaptation of the Japanese manga series, rather than the Korean film.  I don’t know how different the manga is from the film, but hopefully Spielberg will stay faithful to how the story should be told, unlike Francis Lawrence with I Am Legend.

Here’s a clip from Oldboy

Do you think Smith and Spielberg can pull this off?

This is a pretty creative advert from Toshiba.  The song heard here is called “Air War” by Crystal Castles.
