  • Wow, all movies on that list have less than 50% rating on Rotten Tomatoes O.o Is a question about 'why such low ratings for these movies' on-topic for Movies.SE?

  • Tron was based on the movie. That's why it's the only one that doesn't suck.

1 Answer 1


The challenge is over and the top-voted question (with a score of 13 and ~85 views) was asked by Ankit Sharma, which makes him the winner of this challenge:

1. Why did Mortal Kombat: Legacy S01E06 have a special notice added from the director in the start?

The other questions asked, in order of votes are (the numbers are the votes and views):

  1. Why does the DOA: Dead or Alive film have an additional DOA in the title? (11 / ~1576)

  2. Are there any authoritative explanations for why video game movie adaptations receive poor critical reception? (9 / ~146)

    Why isn't Kung Lao in any of the Mortal Kombat movies? (9 / ~615)

    Why did Johnny Cage leave his "friendship" offering after his fight with Scorpion? (9 / ~156)

  3. In Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, why did Johnny Cage get killed so quickly? (5 / ~85)

  4. Why did Machinima make Mortal Kombat: Legacy viewing private on YouTube? (3 / ~66)

  • Ask about video game adaptations and 5 out of 7 are about Mortal Kombat (and one more was about a similar fighting movie). Looks like we could have done a topic challenge just about that! Jan 8, 2017 at 1:04
