  1. It’s not slow due to exposition, though: in fact, I’d say the filmmakers tried to overcorrect from Lynch’s version and erred on the side of “the less said, the better.” No explanation for what a mentat or a Suk doctor is, or why there’s no computer technology, etc. It’s slow because its world building is done almost exclusively through audiovisual design.
  2. ELVIRA, MISTRESS OF THE DARK was better than I expected it to be. Cassandra Peterson isn’t much of an actress, but she’s unquestionably the best Elvira we’ve got.
  3. Didn’t know Shimatami. Look at these stats: Billed height 157 cm (5 ft 2 in) Billed weight 72 kg (159 lb)
  4. The score was nuts. Just weird, ear-splitting orchestral prog rock. I really dug it and didn’t realize it was Zimmer.
  5. That link doesn’t work, but this one does: https://www.thestar.com/entertainment/2021/10/21/alec-baldwin-fatally-shoots-crew-member-with-prop-firearm-on-film-set-authorities-say.html
  6. The traditional thing is for someone to pin the TC champ in the tag league and then challenge in January. Which means, based on these brackets, that the next Triple Crown contender is Abdullah Kobayashi!
  7. NIGHT OF THE HUNTED was really good. Favourite Rollin might be THE GRAPES OF DEATH, but this ranks for sure. Perhaps only sleazier than some of his other entries due to the duration of the sex scenes. Can I watch HERCULES IN THE HAUNTED WORLD and count it as horror? I does have Christopher Lee!
  8. I dunno if or when I’ll have time to watch a 60 minute match, but I’m super intrigued by the Cagematch rankings, which are almost exclusively 10s and 1s.
  9. Zeus showing up for big AJPW shows and running Osaka honestly sounds great. Wonder if Izunagi/Maruyuma follows him.
  10. Whoa~! Did not see that coming. Didn’t know Zeus was Mr. Moneybags.
  11. Now that I teach some classes online, a number of students think that I’m available 24/7. The course outline explains that I’ll only answer emails between 9-5 M-F, but, like, I’d think common sense would dictate that I’m not available on Sunday, for example. What’s worse is that when I explain to a student that I don’t work on the weekend, they get pretty upset, like their tuition means I should be happy to help at any moment.
  12. It’s wild to me how 1990s Kyohei Wada is my favourite ref of all time and 21st century Wada is my least favourite. He was always intrusive, but it used to be an intrusiveness that added to the drama instead of distracting from it.
  13. It really starts with a bang, that’s for sure.
