  1. Kurt had a really simple sly veteran versus young power wrestler match with Matt Morgan on Impact that was less than ten minutes. I don’t think he even hit any of his big spots and won with a leverage pin. I remember thinking how much I wanted to see that Kurt on television every week.

    I really liked Creed II, even if its parts are greater than its sum. There are some wonderful, powerful individual scenes, but in a larger narrative sense they just found cute spins on various pieces of the franchise. You can really tell that the broad strokes in the screenplay (and most of the very fine Rocky stuff to be fair) are Stallone’s, and that making it all work was left to Juel Taylor. It’s still way better than I expected, and there’s no shame in not being as good as Creed. I popped for The most unexpected thing to me was them taking Drago, the most one dimensional character in the franchise, and giving him one of the most satisfying emotional payoffs in the entire movie. I don’t know where they go from here with a sequel since they burned through rehashing Rocky II-IV, but maybe it’s for the best that they’ve already plundered just about everything they can and have to move on.

    IN MEMORIUM 2018

    Nicolas Roeg has passed away at age 90. A genius when it came to “writing” the film in the editing suite. You can really feel his influence on later filmmakers like Wright and Spike Lee.

    Speaking of Woo, I just watched Hard Target again, and similarly Van Damme’s stunt double is all over it. You can mostly tell when it’s him because the wig the guy is in is a horrible approximation of JCVD’s glorious mullet. Meanwhile, it has Lance Henriksen not using a double and allowing himself to be set on fire and looking like the biggest badass alive.

    To the extent that Live Aid was a comeback, it was because they’d gotten ripped apart in the press in the previous months for playing Sun City and in turn been obtuse shitheads about it in interviews.

    Crown Jewel - 11/2/18 from null, null

    That entire 30 minutes washed over me because this is all I could think about.

    Burt Reynolds has died at the age of 82

    Heads up for anyone with Amazon Prime, Burt’s film from this year, The Last Movie Star, is available there. It’s a fictionalized reflection on his own career. I’ve been meaning to watch it for some time. I'm curious if he shot his scenes for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood or if Tarantino will have to recast.
  8. John Mayer looks quite chuffed to be All In.

    I hope nobody tells Marco Rubio about Operation Paperclip.

    James Bond XXV

    I’d imagine it would depend on whether Wright feels like shooting the studio script Boyle didn’t want to use. I’d like to see Wright take on Bond, but if the production wheels are already turning and they’re in a hurry this would be a lot like Tim Burton joining the Planet of the Apes remake last minute and it not really feeling like a Burton movie at all.
  11. Kev is coming for Cedric Alexander’s belt.

    James Bond XXV

    Finally, a Bond that will tell each one of his kills what classic blunder they fell into before they die.

    James Bond XXV

    Apparently, the Bond manor at the end of Skyfall was originally supposed to be a retirement home for double 0s, with potential cameos from old Bonds. When I found that out it infuriated me even more that the rewrite implied the exact opposite about whether Bond was a code name. Either everything before Casino Royale is a completely different continuity or, as posited by the James Bonding podcast, every mission from before Casino Royale happened in some form between QoS and Skyfall, which is why he seems to go from brand new double 0 to washed up veteran so quickly.

    James Bond XXV

    There’s an ongoing book series called Young Bond, that’s basically the result of a eureka moment when someone working at the Fleming estate saw both Young Indiana Jones and Harry Potter and said, “I can do that.”
  15. I saw Curse of the Demon was on and it reminded me that it’s still sitting in my dvr from the spring airing unwatched. Between Judy Garland day and Peter Lorre day I’m going to probably be maxed out on space by end of the week. I do have probably ten unwatched Raws that can gtfoh though.
