    At the 1:45 mark, Bock takes a poorly written rap and kills it. Bock could do or be anything he goddamn wanted.

    I really wanted a Luke scene like the Vader scene in ROGUE ONE.

    I can understand if people aren't thrilled with the Luke characterization, but I think what people need to realize is that his story in TLJ is Johnson trying to make chicken salad out of the chicken shit Luke that Abrams dreamed up in TFA. HE'S the one who decided Luke would turn coward and flee to the far reaches of the galaxy while the Republic went to shit. JJ dropped that turd in Johnson's lap and left it up to him to explain that bullshit and resolve it in a dramatically satisfying way. And that's the key thing: Once you've made an extreme character decision like that, you can't just hand-wave it away and have Luke be like, "A'ight, let's roll" in the beginning of this movie. Whatever could possibly have caused the Luke at the end of ROTJ to abandon the galaxy HAD to be something so dark and traumatic that he couldn't just get over it in Act 1. It has to be a process. The movie has to EARN the glimpse of the old (young?) Luke Skywalker at the end. And it does. So anyone who's not thrilled with Luke's arc in this movie, thank JJ. But also thank Johnson for turning that character assassination into a really beautiful character arc in the end.

    Maybe you only think he can't grow a beard because he's got such a smooth, close shave.

    i read the article linked earlier. It states that fans want less rules, more hard hits, etc, etc. and the NFL isn't delivering to fans what they want. The current WWE is more focused on safety and concussions and stuff of that nature than ever before. Also, the WWE routinely does not give the fans what they want. why do people think that a Vince Football League will do what he's never been able to do- deliver what other people want to see, NOT what HE wants to see?

    Cool moment: Dr. Satler rams into that 1st Order ship with a ship named after the guy who rammed his ship into an Imperial ship in Rogue One. The Raddus.

    Well, at least this instance of a senile old dude making a terrible decision will only lead to the collapse of an entertainment company and not the world economy or civilization itself. So, yay?!

    Zack Snyder still has no goddamn clue about Superman. ETA: Snyder is working on a The Fountainhead adaptation? It all makes so much more sense now.

    I'd be fine with this, but I don't think he would be. Especially with the way he's playing now. 5 in a row after last night. You ask him to be the backup and he's asking to be traded. Him and Portis fighting for starting minutes(while Markannen is dealing with his back) may be the best thing to happen to this team. Read a stat that said over the last 3 games the team is +46 when Portis and Nwaba are on the floor together.

    One funny gag in the Beebo episode that I'm surprised more people didn't find amusing, is the Arrow theme playing when young Stein uses the toy bow to get the toy down.

    Finished it up a couple of hours ago and absolutely loved it. Thought it was the best film since the original trilogy. Loved the twists they did and how they handled Rey and Kylo's characters. I thought this did a much better job of introducing/using the new generation of characters. Its not perfect with a few holes, but nothing for me that was truly big enough to really hurt it. I am left wondering though how they handle things now with Fisher's passing. Feels like it was only just the beginning of the torch passing with her and Poe.

    He might be an asshole but he was one of the most knowledgeable radio hosts out there and he had been around forever. Always told interesting stories. His show with his miserable attitude and the dumbass callers made it a highly entertaining listen. WFAN is going to tank without him.

    Dalton Castle and Silas Young as ROH two singles champions is the best. Get the tag titles onto, say, War Macine and I couldn't be happier.

    At that time, Vince was giving out shots for lots of big names who were past their prime to make some big money in the hottest thing going. Harley Race is the best example. Bock did one Legends Battle Royal at the Meadowlands and that was it. I’m sure Vince would’ve loved to have him as a performer at one point, but by the time he got there Bock was old. It’s not inconceivable that Vince ran by his ideas about characters at various guys until the right performers came along, and that’s where the rumors come from.

    POWER STRUGGLE 2017 PART TWO Well I would have loved to see the Suzuki/Yano bullrope match just for shits and grins. Don't think I've ever seen Yoh and Sho. The Bucks come out and make fun of the challenge thing then still do it anyway. One of the Jacksons has a case of acne apparently. Anyway! TANAHASHI/IBUSHI (INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE): Today and this week have been pretty fucking garbage so I'm looking forward to seeing Ibushi dumping himself on his head along with hopefully having an awesome professional wrestling match. And boy those tights are tiny, with the cameraman getting an egregiously tight closeup of his ass as he gets into the ring. The crack (pardon the pun) NJPW Camera Team strikes again. JR cracks (pardon again) me up saying "Unchained Go-Rilla"... and the battle of the mom haircuts begins! Tana's old-as-dirt leg scissor takeover is just beautiful. Speaking of old he decides to play the role of wily vet and take out Kota's leg. Tana as semi-heel is my favorite version of Tana. God, faking Ibushi out to make him moonsault onto his feet and hurt his knee further is great. So is Tana's chopblock and Kota still selling the leg while doing his expected shit. Ibushi kicks the shit out of him three times but Tana dragons the leg and goes into the Texas Cloverleaf. Tana feels almost like Tenryu in this one. His Sling Blade even looks like it actually hurts someone for a change. WOOF, Ibushi almost cripples both of them on a rana off the top, that's just nasty. JR and Warmaster are doing a great job selling the psychology and FUCK TANA GETS LAWN DARTED INTO THE BUCKLES. And then Germaned off the second rope. They both miss dives with Jim saying "the pool was dry" haha. Then they just start slapping, punching and kicking the shit out of each other and this is fucking awesome. So chippy, so mean. Ibushi even holds Red Shoes' arm so he doesn't see him stomping Tana's face! Then they go home pretty quick with two mean looking High Fly Flows after a Last Ride and an escape from the knee strike. JR says "I could watch them wrestle all night long" and I'll be honest, they have such good chemistry, I could too. That was fantastic. Then (oh, gross) Cody challenges Ibushi. Ibushi is still selling the knee, at least. Tana says a bunch of fans stopped watching NJPW when he was champ (?) and he won't let any of them down again, which is weird. Warmaster says the air guitar makes him feel like he was at a Dio concert back in '84. A man after my own heart... ...aaaaaaaaaaaand then we get the challenge from Switchblade. The intro video shows Gedo's love of WWE knows no bounds. Christ, Jay White looks like he's all of 16 years old. At the very least they fight for a minute after the challenge. Well, that was pretty satisfying. Hiroshi needs to get crankier and Ibushi needs to get crankier while keeping the selling at a peak and we'll eventually get a stone classic out of them. As it is, that was one hell of a match, and I honestly have to say one of the best of the year.

    When it comes to Infinity Inc I can't get into it anything after Ordway. Those first 13 issues are still one of my favorite arcs! James

    Why is everyone assuming the worst, just because every single attempt Vince has made to branch out beyond wrestling (promoting boxing; starting a bodybuilding federation; starting a football league; opening a film studio) has failed miserably?

    On the DVD Sting's mouth will be moving in the interview after but another voice will be going "That was a very unfortunate incident and his behavior hurt many people and that was not the man I knew and I hope that he has time to grow and change."

    This is one of the reasons that we moved to the Southwest. I usually wake up to a text from my father, who is still in NY, talking about the low temperatures and the snow. I get to reply that it's sunny and the high is in the 60's. I do the same thing to the sister in Florida. I tell her that it was so cold today that I ALMOST put on pants!

    I actually like that. Hereditary blood magic is a limiting and problematic trope, and opening the Force up to anyone is better. And I liked killing Snoke too, frankly. It lets Kylo do something Vader never did, which makes him more compelling and not just a cosplayer. My point isn't that those things are bad, just that they were happy to hint at a lot of deeper things regarding both--and then swerve the other way--so I don't think there's reason to look too deep at that character in particular. It seems more consistent with how the film is written to assume he's just who he is.

    Really good action packed episode tonight. Loved the womens four way match. KC Spinelli continues to be one of my favorites every time she's on, Madison has been at her best since returning, plus Sienna and Allie are always top notch. Fun X tag and six man tag with a chaotic ending. Kongo dumping Petey in the crowd ruled. Laurel/Rosemary was pretty good stuff with a big match feel being the main event. Awesome closing seg with Callihan and Konnan as well. Sadly that's it for the year as the next two weeks will be Best of 2017 episodes, so Impact returns on Jan 4 2018 with what looks like another solid lineup.

    Cody sucks, the ROH Bullet Club sucks, the ROH booker sucks, Chris Sabin has sucked for years, and poor Alex Shelley deserves better than being stuck with that chump. Ian Riccobani, overly sympathetic to the babyfaces announcer sucks. Heel Briscoes rule, Dalton Castle fucking rules, Silas Young rules, Cody's fur coat rules. There's your ROH weekly television recap.

    I just love how DC's big heroes actually like each other. Marvel never sold that for me outside of GOTG.
