    Poor Matt Riddle, for missing out on this. Poor Michael Elgin, for having to team with the dude who is clearly going to take his spot.

    Watched the first episode of PUNISHER last night, and it was...fine. Mostly because Jon Bernthal is a magnetic screen presence who can make pretty much anything compelling. But, man, you can already tell this is another one of those Netflix shows that takes for granted that you're just going to watch this straight through and is just kinda content to meander around and take their sweet time coming to a point. Like, I don't think anybody got excited about a Bernthal Punisher series becasue they wanted 2 mintues of Punisher action followed by a 45 minutes of Frank silently sledgehammering concrete and having sandwiches and some random FBI agent having wine with her mother. Again, it's almost like whoever is in charge of these shows is ashamed of comic book characters, so they insist that the 1st episode of every series features the characters doing the most banal, slice-of-life type stuff they can think of, so the audience will know these characters are "deeper" than regular super heroes.

    Last night on Netflix, I rewatched MICHAEL CLAYTON for the first time in years, and I'll be damned if that isn't one of the best least-talked-about movies of the last 10 years. This is an elite screenplay. The plot is impeccable, there is no wasted screen time, and every character's goal is clearly defined and they are at Peak Desperation to achieve it. Tilda Swinton won the Oscar for playing Walking Anxiety Attack, but Tom Wilkinson is absolutely mesmerizing as a guy having a psychotic break and probably deserved to win it over Javier Bardem for Anton Chigurgh. He is THAT good. And this was Clooney's peak as a leading man, playing this classically cool character who just gets broken down until he realizes what he really is. If not for Daniel Day Lewis putting in an all-timer, that was his best actor trophy in a walk. And does any movie have a better in media res opening? There are a lot of clever ones, but few land as powerfully as realizing what Clooney's reaction to the horses means and how it saved his life.

    It took exactly one suplex party for Jeff Cobb to get over with Korakuen. I'm glad Chuck is making friends in the back, because he looked totally out of place in his debut match and none of the Best Friends stuff got over in the ring at all.
  5. EA has removed microtransactions from BATTLEFRONT 2 (for now)
  6. Sexual Assault and Harassment in Hollywood

    How do you do that show without the titular trans parent?
  7. The opening line of "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" hitting while a goddam giant wolf is attacking a helicopter might be the most hilarious needle drop in the history of unintentionally hilarious needle drops.
  8. Yeah, I'm waiting on the ultimate edition, but it's going to be REAL tough to turn down a good Black Friday deal on I2.
  9. NOV 2017 TV THREAD

    There are 7 seasons of COMIC BOOK MEN. With so much evil in the world today, I didn't want to let that fly under the radar.

    Mods, are you SURE you wouldn’t rather us be taking politics in this thread?
  11. Curse of Osiris looks dope, tho.

    500 is my target goal, too.
  14. NJPW World Tag League 2017

    Ishii has had a great year. Strong showings in the US title tournament and the G1. Also just had a high profile match challenging Naito for the WK shot, even though the outcome was 100000% predictable. I hope he doesn't get left out of a big singles match at WK (which pretty much just means the NEVER title, at this point), because he's earned a featured spot.
