  1. I think if the small group of terrible people who stole from the larger group of awful people also helped to create the large market of idiots specifically so they could corner that market, then they are ultimately also responsible for the existence of the large group of awful people or at least their empowerment as a 'demographic." Now maybe I just want to see Steve Banon and Curt Shilling naked in the stocks being stung in the nutsack by murder hornets so badly that I will continue to spin this web forever...
  2. Waiting for the: "HOW DARE THE DEEP STATE ARREST THESE MEN THAT STOLE MONEY DIRECTLY FROM ME!!!!!!!" tweets from the dumbest people on this clown car of a planet.
  3. Oh jseus O god... is this the first sign that COven has convened and her re-emobdiment is emanant? We all got complacent it's been so long...damn our dam eyes!
  4. Alternately they schedule them to play 45 games in 30 days and they finish 7-43 which would be just as awesome and they would still be a game ahead of the Pirates.
  5. 5-3 baby!!!!!! All we need is one series against the Pirates.
  6. Mikey Rooney in BOYS TOWN from 1938 (hat). But it's somehow also a reboot of TWINS from 1988 (enormous size of the man) and Batista is starring with a holograph of Mickey Rooney from the year 3000 (futuristic stare) and they're gamblers on a riverboat from the 1890s like in MAVERICK from 1994 (vest) and they help win World War 2 from the 1940s (hat again) because Big Dave wished for it like in THE INCREDIBLE MR. LIMPET (bow tie) from 1964 and this is all somehow happening in 2020 (you reading this).
  7. BREAKING: (Stamford CT): WWE ANNOUNCES NEW TOUT PRO PLUS. Receive a 4 second personalized message from Seth Rollins for only $99.99. 10% of which will go to King Corbin himself (Seth Rollin's 10% subject to WWE Licensing and logistics fees).
  8. THis movie also changed me. Running out immediately and renting this the day it became available and running home and watching it and in the first half hour a little voice in my head beginning to grow louder whispering: "wait...but...maybe...okay...so movies can sometimes be...bad...and sometimes bad people can take something that is beautiful and destroy it...but why?" By minute 57 it is louder... "so...either incompetence or carelessness or they had bad intentions to start with. What if most people most of the time are like this instead of the good way..."
  9. When I first tentatively lurked here and even more shakily posted my first question about Megumi Kudo back in late '99 I was juuuuust getting back into wrestling after having "grown out of it" around '89 or so and missed most of everything in the nineties. I had recently seen a clip of Foley promos and another of the infamous "chopee your peepee" bit on like real player and thought "I think there might be something here speaking profoundly to my dramatic sensibilities...." I had a lot of catching up to do. I literally knew nothing not just about recent WWE history, or about Japan,
  10. I can't do it. I have the old tin box and I just can't pull the trigger on $120 or $160 for a few (albeit neat) new extras and new scans. But if I didn't have the old box this would be the easiest decision to pre-order something I've ever run across. At least since the Scream Factory Halloween set.
  11. wow...it's too many layers...it's too much at once...I'm having trouble fitting it all...PULL UP...PULLLLLL UPPPPPPPPBATISTAFASHIONWWWWEEEEEEIIIIIIIIAAAAAAACCCCCCCCHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
  12. If Vince does nothing this year but poach any of the costume designers for Kpop boyband videos, 2020 will be redeemed for the whole world and wrestling will be saved.
  13. There is no better line of dialog to bump into when watching a movie than this: Guy: "We'll never catch them this way. We'll have to cut through the Forbidden Zone." Other Guy: "The Forbidden Zone?" Me: oH, shit... alternate version: Guy: "We'll never catch them this way. We'll have to cut through the Forbidden Zone." Other Guy: "The Forbidden Zone? You seriously named it the Forbidden Zone? Like, you couldn't be more helpful like "he don't go here because there are giant spiders zone or the If you touch the water here you will turn into a blob of flesh
  14. I mean, if the rule book allows Air Bud to play, I bet it allows the St. Louis Terriers and the Buffalo Blues to sign whoever they want and declare the return of the Federal Leauge.
  15. Almost all the problems with Exorcist III would be solved by having a lead who wasn't so sluggish and phoning it in as George C. Scott was. I know he was a big name and the character he was playing wasn't exactly spry in the 1st movie. But if they didn't insist on keeping that personal connection in that character, they could have heightened the stakes so much just by having a little motion and emotion from their lead in the same way that the stationary villain in the first movie was counterbalanced by the whirlwind of energy from Ellen Burstyn.
  16. The fight choreography and stunt work in that final scene was astounding given that no one involved was a trained stunt person and they had like hours to film most of it. It makes you wonder how well even a Jackie Chan fight would look if he didn't have an army of personally trained brilliant athletes working with him and dozens to hundreds of takes for each single shot to make it work. It was legit one of the best things I've ever seen when you measure in the degree of difficulty.
  17. At this point I see the Vinegar syndrome sales as a twice yearly spiritual tithing. It's like once during Spring planting season and once during harvest season you have to cough up your sacrifice to appease the Grindhouse Gods so that the next season will be a fertile one. I just wish they would accept humans burned up in a big wicker statue of Lucio Fulci instead of just U.S. currency. It would be cheaper and easier to hide the evidence from my wife.
  18. i hate to tell all of you but Grindhouse Video is also running a really good sale on Blue Underground editions. They are very tempting because they have a lot of the 3 disc editions (1 blu for the movie, 1 for just special features, and 1 CD soundtrack) for $17-21). And I figure if I randomly found a CD of the soundtrack for Zombie or something like that at a store for like $10 I would pounce on it. So it's like I'm getting the actual movie and special features for like $7-$10. At least that's what I told myself when I blew up my paypal on them at the same time Vinegar Syndrome was goin
  19. There's a few good things buried in there. Bird with the Crystal Plumage for $8. Blood & Black Lace on Bl for $5!! But much of the stuff is soul-deadening and there's a lot to look through. To make it worse a lot of this straight to dvd junk has amazing 70s or 80s looking cover art. The slugs are getting smart. Here's some of what i found that looked good (keeping in mind my odd standards) and at a good price if you want to cut through the bullshit: Blood and Black Lace Bird with the Crystal Plumage Black Shampoo Twilight People Funeral Home Night Visitor The
  20. But don’t we also always here that the best way to make Vince want to hire you back is to stand up for yourself, tell him to go fuck himself and that you don’t need him?
  21. This reminds me of the scene in every James Bond movie where the head of the evil people group is like “anyone who disagrees with this plan feel free to speak up now” and then that person is eaten by an octopus.
  22. I want to go bowling now only so I can drop the phrase “using house balls” over and over.
  23. Hollywood Observer: A lot of Oscar buzz surrounding James Franco putting on over 100 pounds to play White Pootie Tang. Some groups protest “do we need a white pootie tang?” Sony exec. Claps back “did we need a black one?” Director Lars von Trier insists “it will be culturally sensitive to the original material of which I am a huge fan.” Developing...
