Movie Ketchup, Er We Mean, Catch-Up: Good Burger 2, Mortal Kombat Legends: Cage Match & Doom Patrol's End

Streaming on Paramount+
Good Burger 2 is a blast from the past. The movie is as exactly as you remember the skits from All That! and the first movie. We looked it and up and it's because it's from the same writers who did those previous things mentioned. Just sit back and relax as you watch slapstick humor and dumb jokes that simply aren't done anymore on finer children's programming. Kenan and Kel are up to their exact shenanigans with plenty of cameos to make you pause it and go, "Wait, 'Whose that?,"

For rent online everywhere.
You might know from reading the site over the years that usually WB's animation straight to rent animation sucks. Anything made with DC superheroes from them, throw into a dumpster and set it on fire. While the writing, look, style and tone are horribly out of place for iconic super heroes, it is perfect for Mortal Kombat. Mortal Kombat Legends: Cage Match is set in 80's LA and is a constant stream of blood and violence. Where jokes and attitudes are supposed to be over-the-top and violence is a key part of the world it works so well here it's crazy.
 Funny enough, I'm seeing what look like character designs or styles ripped from short lived Moonbeam City, perfect for that 80's sort of fell.

For any fan of Mortal Kombat this just works and is no way good for the kiddos, something WB animation for some reason can't wrap its head around for stuff starring Superman.

Did ya know Doom Patrol ended? Probably not as I casually make fun of how bad DC runs its company into the ground...or just its streaming service. I'm gonna miss these wacky and messed-up adventures. The showrunner seems to have really made it the series finale is all I say. 
Doom Patrol wasn't afraid to shy away from well, really anything and the final episodes are dark great pieces of superhero weirdness. Gotta love that through in a musical with a short jack'in it scene.
