It's completely illogical, but I love 90s CGI infinitely more than the special effects they put out today. It feels exponentially more homegrown and organic, though this is in actuality not the case—it obviously as artificially constructed and binary-based back then as it is now.
The same proclivity exists towards awkwardly aged blockbusters. Despite being as utterly fatuous and plastic as the most bloated franchise films today, the nostalgic attributes and clumsy details of bygone cultural affinities imbue them with an elevated air of qurik and earnestness.
I wonder if this trend will reiterate itself with contemporary blockbusters, twenty-five or so years later; but I also wonder if there was something particularly endearing about the pronounced sloppiness of computerized graphics and tentpole blockbusters during their embryonic phase?
Whatever the case, the patent flaws of the '95 Mortal Kombat are ironically what propel it to its somewhat unearned viewing victories.
