So, my roommate, Giordi, and I were discussing movies this evening, and I tried to convey my concept of the movie, Mortal Combat. The first one, not the second one. I described it as having lots of "gratuitous action". Now, most guys would have a problem with this concept, but Giordi has a gift for understanding things conceptually. It gets him in trouble, sometimes. Anyway, I was explaining how sometimes, during a plot gap, they would just insert a random fight.
Giordi said, "So, it's like porn, but instead of sex, there's fighting." I started to laugh, but then I realized that that's exactly what it is. So I laughed anyway. Then, he started describing how he saw it as playing out...
"How are you?"
"I'm fine, thank you. And you?"
"Just fine, thanks. Say, you look like a fighter."
"Why, yes, as a matter of fact, I am."
"Would you like to fight, then?"
"Certainly! Let us."
I'll never see Mortal Combat the same way again.
