I’ve never played a “Tekken” video game. But I have seen the new, live-action “Tekken” movie, now available on the DVDs and the Blu-rays.
Now there’s another “Tekken” movie, this one is animated, is only showing tonight, won’t hit video until around Thanksgiving, and looks fairly insane. I call your attention to this entry from last Wednesday’s Gazette:
“Is your moviegoing heart lusting for something bloody, vengeance-filled, based on a video game and requiring special glasses? Behold! For one night only, catch the computer-animated, PG-13 actioner “Tekken: Blood Vengeance 3D” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Cinemark Tinseltown USA, 6001 N. Martin Luther King. A 20-minute special follows. Tickets are $12-$14. Call 424-0461 or visit fathomevents.com.”
Again, that Tuesday means tonight. I’ll be there, likely complaining of a 3-D-induced headache. —Rod Lott
Wanna watch a feature documentary on pro video gamers? Here you go!
From 2008, the documentary “Beyond the Game” made some buzz on the festival circuit, and finally hit home video last summer from Cinema Purgatorio. Now, courtesy of the same, you can watch the film for free, in full, right freakin’ now. Thanks, guys!
The doc follows pro video gamers from around the world, vying for the title of “World of Warcraft” champion.
