So... Mortal Kombat: Legacy
Apparently that viral video/movie (please make it thingy) of a realistic Mortal Kombat, became a web series. Yeah yeah, good to see Jeri Ryan getting work (outside of guest appearances in say Leverage) and an Jai White - whoo! But uhm, Kitana and Mileena. Why is the 'non good twin' more visibly/recognizably* East Asian? Why were the King and Queen white? Shao Kahn, white? But Shang Tsung, a 'magical' bad guy, visibly Asian? And then they tell you 'the twins were identifical in every way except...' - one was evil. The one that looks visibly Asian. The hell?
*It occurs to me I'm not phrasing this right. No clue how to, however. Pointers welcome. Easily recognizeable as (East)Asian? Recognizalbe to general clueless audiences as (East) Asian? And I keep having to add the East in there, because I realize I'm thinking broad terms in Asian, but what I'm really wanting to discuss is East Asian seeming attributes. Grr arrgh, ugh - maybe it's easier just not to watch and stop trying to explain what I'm seeing and how it's irking/bugging/ grating on me.
