"This week we take on a movie for anyone who has ever played a video game and thought to themselves: 'I wonder what her story is.'—Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li."

Official Show Notes[]

"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."
