  1. Past hour
  2. Yeah, I think that's nonsense. I think there's a difference between having empathy for some of Arthur's situation and not seeing him as heroic at the end. That's a pretty broad brush to say anyone who has empathy for him thinks he's being heroic at the end.
  3. I will never again accuse Carlos Correa’s Fiancée of beating him again.
  4. Today
  5. Cool behind the scenes Joker photos released:
  6. Draw of Days of Future Past to me was the old and new cast coming together and Bryan Singer's return to the series. Deadpool 2 had its moments but I preferred the first movie by some way, tighter and funnier. Deadpool 2's post-credits scenes were better than the movie. I also liked The Wolverine and disliked the ones you do. Yet to see Dark Phoenix myself.
  7. Some of my preference is a very specific age thing. Nightmare was just a little too late, and I a little too old when it showed up, for it to have the same mystical fascination that Halloween and Friday had. I would just not have those memories of being terrified by it (as I was by Halloween's first network t.v. showing and by Halloween 2's commercial) or of literally fleeing the room to escape the sound of it's trailers when they snuck up on me during SNL (like F13 parts 2-4 did to me). If I was maybe two or three years younger, I might not have any memories of Halloween in particular and have been highly traumatized by Freddy and who know what I would think of Jason if all my first memories of that series were of parts 6 or 7 or 8. It amazes me when I hear people who love the Friday movies and will then say "Yeah part 8 was the first one I saw and I loved it!" I cannot fathom that. It is unfathomable. I still think that the Friday series is the most consistently amazing in capturing a frightening mood and Halloween is by far the best individual film of them all...but I can't guarantee that those opinions aren't just from that added personal impact.
  8. Days of Future Past and Deadpool 2 would make my list from the FOX studio. Actually, I enjoyed The Wolverine too. I did not like The Last Stand, Wolverine: Origins or X-Men: Apocalypse. I have not seen X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
  9. I didn't list Magneto for that reason, Magneto out for revenge in X-Men: First Class (2011) was the highlight of it. Nice to get a great X-Men film again after X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) and X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009). I'd definitely rank X2 (2003), Logan (2017), Deadpool (2016) in that order ahead of First Class and possibly X-Men (2000) as well.
  10. The low blow might've been okay if it, you know, looked good, and was sold properly.
  11. I can freely admit that the Nightmare movies are better made, etc, but my heart belongs to Halloween and F13
  12. I did not enjoy it nearly as much as I wanted to. Damn. Wrestling must always (appear) to go forward, to remain au courant. You can appeal to nostalgia, even benefit from it, but should never indulge in it. If you present it as "classic", "traditional" , "retro" or "throwback", you lose some of the sports presentation that is necessary to actualize the believabilty of pro wrestling. Creating a niche product to market it to a niche crowd of consumers is a losing proposition and makes you seem small time. No matter how good a cosplayer you are, you will not be seen a true creator - just a consumer, fan, amateur. Things I Liked: - small ring - studio audience and setting - real interviews Thing I Did Not Like: - no good heels - the audience was too happy. Where were the (por ejemplo) jeering Girl Scout troops of the old TBS studios, that the heels had to work to get a real reaction from? - the workers were too much the same, with no flair. They all wanted to appear tough but no one was larger than life. - Aldiss is generic as heck, and his valet appeared to be catatonic - Tim Storm: yuck. So sincere as to be maudlin and business exposing as well. He shows every year of his age in the ring. He refers to himself as a "performer" - by thee great ghost of Blassie, that is some infuriating shiazit. That said, I will watch again to how (if?) this evolves. my free opinion, RAF
  13. I could be nostalgic too because 5 was one of the only ones that was always on TV when I was a kid, the others weren't. TBH I'm a Jason partisan. My real interests in Nightmare lie pretty much in the two Craven entries, Freddy vs. Jason, and that's it.
  14. The scary part is they still make Twinkies.
  15. Me too. I tried it and it wasn't for me. I don't know if you watched the movie or not but you could write down your issues with it instead of writing down your issues with me who again you don't know...
  16. 1. Death - Altering the Future This awesome track from Spiritual Healing sets up this great Chuck moment with a light galloping beat after a solo midway through the song and you don’t really see it coming, him screaming much lower tone “Altering the Future!” as the track then takes it’s cue anda much darker blast appears and then slows down and dirty for the close out stretch. Awesome stuff made by my one vocal moment. If you listen to this I gurantee you yell that the next time you give it a spin.
  17. I'm too nosy to have anyone on ignore.
  18. You don't know anything about me so please stop talking like you do. Just.... don't. You are also free to put me back on ignore.
  19. Fuck, Lee/Xiong ended in just about the most dramatic fashion. Xiong was seconds away from likely winning a decision until Lee got that choke. Lee's standup is super rudimentary and was teed up whenever they weren't grappling. Showed some great heart to persevere to get that submission. Damn. DJ, I literally couldn't see his punches at the start of the fight.
  20. Also, as the only person here to actually take down a superhero*, I can say that empathizing with a sad sack loser is not on my to do list. *Phoenix Jones
  21. Please stop talking about mental illness like you have any idea how it affects people. Just... don't.
  22. Another awesome Tessa main event this week, like the one with Serpentine a few weeks back. This was a hell of a sprint. Reyes looked her absolute best yet, nailing all her spots crisp and Tessa bumping all over the place & selling made everything look that much better. Tessa was on fire, loved the corner Magnum off the 2nd rope. Love how there's always multiple people gunning for the title. Monsters of Madness looked good in their squash. Stephy/Disciplinarian was another fun 5 minutes as was Jungle/Massy, a bit more competitive than expected but good.
  23. Fuck I haven't seen this on paper yet so lets look at it on paper. Smackdown main event scene - Brock Lesnar (Champion) - Roman Reigns - 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt - Braun Stroman Okay, so I like that Wyatt and Braun have a lot of history and that was built on a recent episode of RAW as well. However, Brock/Roman/Lesnar have mixed it up way too much in recent times. I'm not sure I want to see any of those matches again. Daniel Bryan, Andrade and/or Nakamura might be a good fit here. RAW main event scene - Seth Rollins (Champion) - AJ Styles - Randy Orton - Drew Mcintyre - Ricochet - Kevin Owens This is a hell of a start. Styles/Orton have had some good matches but not too many. Styles vs. Drew or Owens vs. Drew or Ricochet vs. Orton etc. sound like potentially great matches. I think Aleister Black would be a good fit on this brand. RAW Women's Division - Becky Lynch (Champion) - Alexa Bliss - Nikki Cross - Natalya Okay, so the obvious issue here is there are no heels. If they added Charlotte that doesn't solve the issue unless she does another turn which she should but I think she stays with FOX. I think this is where the women's tag champions Asuka and Kairi Sane will land. Maybe they continue their feud with Bliss/Cross but also Asuka vs. Becky seems like it's gonna happen sooner or later. Kairi Sane vs. Becky Lynch is another interesting match that I don't think we've seen yet. They could also add Ruby Riot but she's hurt. Smackdown Women's Division - Bayley (Champion) - Sasha Banks - Lacey Evans - Tamina Hey, here's all the heels. A great collection of heels but the champion is also heel. That's fine for now but maybe the Sasha/Bayley feud finally happens down the road. What's also probably going to happen is the addition of Charlotte. A rekindling of the Sasha/Charlotte rivalry is a possibility and Charlotte vs. Lacey Evans I think they did once but Lacey has improved some since then. Ember Moon would have been an awesome addition to this roster but she's hurt. I think Naomi is a great possibility here. Naomi could have some fun matches with all these heels. Mickie James could get some burn. I don't know where Fire & Desire and The IICONICS will land, it seems like they are both continuing on as heel teams but that's an issue with the champions being heels too.
