The Weekly Links: Fall Guy Movie, LEGO Thriller, Street Fighter Documentary

The Weekly Links are back with yet another 80s TV show being made into a movie, badly dressed G.I. Joes, Zelda ripoffs, Brony action figures, and motorcycle ninjas. Buckle up 'cause it's gonna be a bumpy ride!

 - In case you missed it, a new trailer was released last Thursday for the Robocop remake and I gotta admit...I'm excited! I don't expect it to compare to the original (especially since its PG-13,) but I have high hopes for an entertaining movie.

 - Also available to stream for free on Youtube is a 72 minute Street Fighter documentary released for the 25th anniversary. I'm a sucker for great documentaries about '80s pop culture and this one doesn't disappoint.
