    • I don’t know if you have played the recent Mortal Kombat, but Cary Hiroyuki Tagawa resided the role of Shang Tsung and the character was remodeled to look like him.

  • I miss OG Disney Channel films; even when they were silly and cliche, they had a lot of heart. And while plenty of them were "new kid uses special skill to fit in" storylines, there was a lot more variety than today, when it's all "singing", "starting a band", or "dancing". (Half-leprechaun playing basketball, anyone?) And when it was a band/dancing, it focused more on the story than the romance, like "Gotta Kick it Up". And I miss the really wacky, creative plots like "Zenon", "Smart House", or "The Thirteenth Year".

  • Hmm, I wonder if a modified surfboard would work as a snowboard 🤔

  • Its almost like Nostalgia Critic is unaware of how mistreated a kid in a waspish community can be. The movie seemed more realistic than it should have been considering what a snobbish preppy all white "elitist" community would be like to a free living surfer kid with tanned skin and dark hair. Its not that much of a stretch; much of america was very discriminating back in the day on many levels, and much of the country still can be very backwards.

  • I was excited to hear what he had to say about this one. I loved it as a kid and watched it every time it came on! And he’s right! Even back then I could tell everyone was acting their hearts out because it felt real. They were all like able people! Yes it’s cliched but there are some cliches you can get past if you like the characters.

  • Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa reprises his Shang Tsung role in Mortal Kombat 11. Which is pretty freaking amazing seeing this guy for like over 20 years gets to come back and do his role again and in one of the best MK games of all time.

  • Watched this recently, and my wife and I were surprised at how relevant it was to the current moment. The classism, the veiled racism, the division in towns and families. While cliche, it very much touches on real issues and left more of an impact on me now than when I passively saw it on cable all those years ago.

  • The first time I ever saw Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa was when he played a good guy. He played a cop in the first season of the 90's show Nash Bridges. Also Yuji Okumoto who plays the dad also played Chozen in Karate Kid part 2.

  • Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa doesn't ALWAYS play a villain, he was in the James Bond movie License To Kill and he didn't play a villain in that either. Although, at first you think his character is working with the main villain, but then you find out he's just a plant.

    • That one had a surprising subplot about steroid allegations that was never resolved, and very different from DCOMs done since HSM pretty much. I wouldn’t mind a Disneycember about it. If the DCOMs took a break from doing musicals and revisited the types of movies they did twenty years ago I think older fans of those would tune in.
