8-Bit Cinema: Streets of Rage vs. Fight Club

8 Bit Fight Club

One of my favourite movies is Fight Club but it isn’t ‘retro’ enough for me to write about it here on The Retroist. Until now!

Thanks to the 8-Bit Cinema series of videos on Youtube, I now have a legitimate reason to quote the modern masterpiece… The first rule of 8-bit fight club is… well, I’m saying 8-bit but watching this Streets of Rage inspired version of events has me wondering if the series should be named 16-bit as the graphics are clearly of the Super NES era.

The entire Cinefix 8-Bit movie channel is around 45 minutes and if you’ve not seen any of them before, I’d recommend you go spend your next lunch break having a watch.

  1. This is a ton of fun! The mini missions (Slide, Fat stealing, “soap” making…) all absolutely perfect. And I loved the 8Bit Pixies song at the end. Thanks for sharing this!
