  1. 80's Lea Thompson. Which is always worth paying money to see. And she legit sings "Hunger City" with Thomas Dolby's band and it's awesome. Also awesome: Dolph Lundgren's Punisher.
  2. A couple thoughts: An interesting contrast between Hank and Kim. Breaking Bad gave us a character who started out seeming like a puffed-up asshole, but by the final season came to be the moral center for the show. Better Call Saul introduced a character right away as the moral centerpiece, then gradually pulled back until by the final season you see that nothing's really there. I guess the closest thing to a moral center that BCS has is Nacho. That's why he gets the blue flower. We all know what blue stands for in this universe. Not perfection, but as close to it as possible. Blue is "as good as it gets." Nacho is as good as it gets in this show's world. I'm definitely with the majority that Lalo can't survive this show. No way can Gus be that confident in BB if he hasn't seen Lalo's corpse. At first I considered that he was Gus's Gus, ie. he is to Gus what Gus will be to Walter. But the more I think about it, I think I agree with A_K that Mike will kill Lalo, thus cementing him as the Breaking Bad universe's ultimate badass. I'm still hoping that the Gene stuff so far is pre-Walt's return from New Hampshire, with Omaha right on the path from there to Albuquerque...
  3. Yeah, I'm about the biggest Miz apologist there is and I heartily agree that he does not need to be doing springboard anything.
  4. He look like Gwildor from the MOTU movie with some shit on his face...
  5. "Mark for yourself" has always been kinda dumb. When you develop a character in the biz, that character is your money making potential. You need to protect it. Hogan, HBK, Austin, Cena, they're all who they are from being marks for themselves. Hell, Roddy Piper was such a mark for himself he wouldn't even job to Hogan. Or even like Scott Hall calling Bret Hart a mark for himself for having his house filled with memorabilia. If you went to Jimmy Page's house and his walls were covered in guitars, gold records, and Led Zep swag, would you think, "Man, this Jimmy Page really is a mark for himself"...
  6. Was it because I name-dropped him in the last thread? That'd be awesome dude... Anyway, yeah, his Champion Carnival run was fantastic, as was the Triple Crown match last weekend. He brings something different and older school to the table I think. Don't get me wrong, I do love the "I'm going to kick and/or knee strike you into oblivion" style of Miyahara, Marafuji, Lee, Nakajima, Kenoh, etc. that's become so popular in the 2 King's Road feds. But seeing a guy who does a nice crisp elbow drop, fun flash pins, and a brainbuster version of Villano IV's old cradle suplex as his finish is a nice change of pace.
  7. I went with Bianca, though I'd have written in Yuma Aoyagi if I could...
  8. Not to mention, with all the additional media covering sports these days he can't make shit up as easily either. "There's Wardlow. He was an All-American D End 2 years at Ohio State before coming into the business you know .." "Um, no he wasn't JR." "Whattayamean he wasn't..." "I have the Big10 Network. Watch a lot of Buckeyes. Never saw a Wardlow anywhere." "Uh, my mistake I must have meant Ohio U..." "JR, I'm not seeing any of this on his Wikipedia page. I mean, he boxed a little..." "There's Wardlow, fans, former Golden Gloves champion in the tradition of the great Roddy Piper! Gonna be a slobberknocker tonight I guarantee it!"
  9. Are we talking about this: http://web.archive.org/web/20110614012559/http://www.deathvalleydriver.com/bbbowm/bbbowm.htm Wait, Rev's gonna do an updated one? Sweet...
  10. So he's making Pig, but with bees?
  11. That sucks. I just popped in here to see if anyone had opinions on iwtv. I'm trying to find a way to watch H2O since one of my co-workers works there as Johnny Radex. He just worked a match with Tremont last month. Apparently Masha Slamovich works there too sometimes. I wanted to check it out.
  12. I'm pretty sure she hit the "never getting a driver's license again" point several DUI's ago. Unfortunately it looks like the only thing that was ever gonna stop her from driving drunk was prison.
  13. Main things I remember: My big faces were Tank Johnson (Roadblock), "Wildfire" Johnny Blaze (Chuckles), and Starman (Dr. Mindbender with a pink mask and a star drawn on it). Road Pig was a monster heel. Various Vipers were a ninja clan heel faction. Croc Master and Big Boa were a Demolition/Roadies-esque monster tag team. Sgt. Slaughter, since the figure was so big, was the Andre-esque giant babyface. Shipwreck was a top guy. I think Dialtone was a devious manager.
  14. Road Pig - monster heel to so many of our GI Joe wrestling feds...
  15. OK so we got a receiver after all... and Davis is a beast and all that... but man drafting about the last thing the Eagles need (a big run stuffer in the middle) in the first round is still a total fucking Howie Roseman move...
  16. "Bigger = bulletproof" has been a thing since giant monster movies began. Then there's the general tendency of fiction writers to be completely unaware of how much damage military-grade weapons actually do. I think the dumbest example of that I've seen is in World War Z when zombies are able to overwhelm militaries because center mass shots don't kill them. Who cares if the heads are still moaning if their bodies are shredded to bits?
  17. Homey you don't need to concern yourself with the opinion of someone who didn't laugh uproariously throughout Dirty Work ..
  18. I was worried about this. I loved The VVitch but was not crazy about The Lighthouse. It seems like Eggers is taking a hard turn away from subtle story-telling and towards SYMBOLISM~! of the heavy-handed variety. Also everyone keeps referencing Conan but I got way more of a "proactive Hamlet" vibe from the trailers...
  19. Difficult and abusive to live with too, according to his second wife. Basically he's been an alcoholic asshole most of his life, but then he shows at someone's birthday party out of the blue or pops up to color comment on a Cubs game and everybody talk about how quirky and lovable he is again...
  20. If we can bump that number up a bit, we can get Jaguar Yokota in the main event at Mania next year. At 61 she'd probably still have one of the better matches on the card...
  21. Wouldn't it be ironic if he violated some stupid WWE backstage protocol and the veterans wouldn't let Davey Jones change in the locker room?
  22. Is it too much to hope that Natalie Portman enjoys being an action lead enough for us to get a Mathilda movie?
  23. Gil Brandt needs to be put in senior care because he's 90 fuckin' years old and clearly is in early stages of dementia to anyone who listened to that sound bite. So let's put away the pitchforks and torches...
  24. "I bet you'd hire Kawada! His kicks only looked good because they were shoots you mark!"
