Get back to work or masturbating or whatever it is you do over there and quit bothering us with your imaginary board problems! GO SCREW! Dean Henry Rasmussen, The Most important Man On Earth.

  6. Fire and wind come from the sky, from the gods of the sky. But Brock is your god, Dean and he lives in the earth. Once, giants lived in the Earth, Dean. And in the darkness of chaos, they fooled Brock, and they took from him the enigma of steel. Brock was angered. And the Earth shook. Fire and wind struck down these giants, and they threw their bodies into the waters, but in their rage, the writers forgot the secret of steel and left it on the battlefield. We who found it are just jobbers. Not main eventers. Not JTTSs. Just jobbers. The secret of steel has always carried with it a mystery. You must learn its riddle, Dean. You must learn its discipline. For no one - no one in this world can you trust. Not faces, not heels, not part timers who just work one show a year. [Points to steel chair] This you can trust.

  7. If you need more proof how awesome Kevin Owens is, go to 1:30 of this video. Owens knows how to work heel better than just about everyone else on the roster.

  8. I think Trips is an evil mastermind who is hoping that the crowd chanting "NXT" the entire main event of wrestlemania will put pressure on making him the booker for the main show. Cause that shit is going to fucking happen.

  11. Why shouldn't they want to cheer HHH? He's the champ, he runs the company, and he gives them NXT. People like winners. What I'm understanding here is that HHH is a winner, while Reigns just tries his best. Well, Triple H does go home and fuck the prom queen.

  14. I'm skipping ahead from page 3 to get this out there. Rollins/HHH would be about 10 times the program Roman/HHH is. As in, it actually makes sense. Cocky heel protege wants to be the man, sells out to win title, is treated like a glorified lackey for months, turns face and wins title the right way. That's a WM story. The idea that the authority doesn't want Roman on top is so contrived because everyone knows the exact opposite is true. It's clear that some people think the Roman hate is all booking and, it mostly is, but it's also that he still isn't that good. It's amazing how some of you are overrating him. He's put in more positions to succeed in the ring than anyone else on the roster and the results are still meh. He can put together a decent to good match with pretty much everyone in the main event scene, but he can't call a damn audible to save his life. Why are you shaking the ring ropes and doing feed off the crowd spots when the crowd is completely shitting on you? Also, he isn't physically charismatic in the way you need to be if you can't talk. It all seems so contrived.

  17. This is a blatant piggyback off of the "Great characters in bad movies" thread, but when I was trying to think of some, all I could harken back to was some of my all time favorite performances. One in particular. Norman Stansfield(Gary Oldman) in the Professional. This performance alone has made me a fan of Oldman for life, and consequently, has made me hate the Academy, as he has never won one, albeit they are watered down pandering as of late.

  28. I'm not bothered by the fact that Reigns won so much as bothered by the fact he effectively no-sold the Kimura Lock and three chairshots to deliver a spear 10 seconds later. Whereas at the same time Brock, who has been booked like The Incredible Hulk for the last 2 years plus, sold three chairshots like a hand grenade exploded in his shorts.

  30. two gaming moments accomplished this week. 1: beat Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Wii. took around 40 hours and almost exactly one month. fun game. it doesn't seem to be anybody's favorite, but i really liked the art style and the characters. 2: completed my US Virtual Boy collection. i know it's only 14 games, but i still think it's cool to have them all.

  37. 1. Those kids grew up and still read comics. Comic book companies were smart enough to figure out where the money came from. Comics have not been written with an audience of children in mind for ages. 2. DieHard is the one of the best Christmas movies ever. You just don't get to see the part where John opens presents with his kids the next day. 3. Deadpool is about as cynical as Guardians of the Galaxy as in not very cynical at all. It is an episode of Teletubbies compared to the weight of The Dark Knight or Man of Steel. Is it violent? Yeah. So were all of those horror comics you still got to read as a kid in the 80's..

At least, that's what some sunshine pumpers want to claim any time anyone challenges the fact that the Wyatts are dead in the water. If ONLY there was an example of heels that didn't lose and that got over even more because they were so dominant... If only...

  46. The entire tone of the film. The book Watchmen is basically the world's longest, most complex way of stating the phrase "fuck superheroes". Moore was demythologizing the whole genre way back when Frank Miller was practically his only contemporary, and Will Eisner the only precedent. Long before guys like Mark Millar and Garth Ennis took the concept to its furthest extremes, Moore was undermining the entire concept of noble superheroism and dismissing the very idea that any of this was done out of pure altruism or that it could lead to a happy ending.Watchmen the motion picture gets none of that. It makes the superheroes' actions look COOL, all badass slow-motion and spin-kicking dudes in the face. It amps up the genre elements of the plot, focusing much harder on the action and the comedy and the whodunit, and manages to leave out the suffocating despair and the feeling that the superheroes were entirely just a bunch of manchildren playing with their toys (and by "their toys" I mean "the lives of the entire human race"). It's like taking The Road and making it into The Road Warrior. Either one on its own is great, but they don't work together at all. I'll maintain to my dying day that not only was Constantine an underrated movie, but it actually GOT Alan Moore's work better than any other cinematic adaptation. Sure, the rampant changes to the details of the story were annoying and unnecessary; making the quintessentially English punk John Constantine into fuckin' Keanu Reeves was, naturally, a poor decision based purely on mercenary starpower greed. And the transformation of an essentially pagan mythos into pseudo-Catholic spiritualism was aggravating. But the movie got the FEEL of the comic perfectly: John is a selfish piece of shit, his actions often cause more problems than they solve, he always gets his friends brutally killed, and there's a general feeling that God really doesn't give that much of a fuck about His sentient human creations. You can practically smell the brimstone-laced nicotine wafting off the grimy images on the screen. It even worked as a legit horror movie at times: the Omen-like scene in the liquor store was seriously unnerving in concept and execution. And then Tilda Swinton plays an archangel and Peter Stormare plays Satan and what more could you possibly ask for. The funny thing is that Moore and Gibbons stated repeatedly in interviews and supplementary material that they intended Watchmen as a celebration of the superhero genre. It's supposed to show the potential of it to tell mature, adult stories as well as flights of fancy. Whether it succeeds on that level is another matter but they certainly didn't intend it as a critique. A big part of Watchmen is asking the question "What is a hero?" This was even more pertinent at a time when Miller's Daredevil was a few years old and Wolverine and Punisher were getting big as heroes with no qualms about killing. Every costumed character in Watchmen could be considered a hero depending on the framing of the narrative. Night Owl is altruistic but ineffective. Silk Spectre is a figurehead. Comedian is a morally compromised war hero. Doctor Manhattan is cold and detached but also incredibly powerful. Rorschach is a psychopath who turns that malice on criminals. Ozymandias is the big picture guy, sacrificing many to bring peace to most. They're all heroes in the right lens and that's something the film misses. It also fails to properly get the Cold War climate which is why the alien squid change doesn't really work. Doctor Manhattan is seen as an American weapon. If an American weapon blew up Moscow in the heart of the Cold War, they wouldn't stop and call to ask "What the fuck?" It would need to be an external threat, thus aliens. Fun fact: Moore was SO ON THE MONEY HERE. It came out in 2009 that Reagan and Gorbachev met in secret in the 80s and agreed that they would halt the Cold War at the threat of alien invasion. Anyway, the movie moralizes too much and undermines the conceits of the book. Shit like the first Silk Spectre forgiving the Comedian for raping her because he gave her Laurie rather than the more complicated answer that feelings are complicated and someone can love their rapist because these things don't always make sense. The stuff that's kept the same exists to reassure fanboys while the changes compromise the core conceits of the book to better align with the ethical and logistical concerns of Hollywood. It sucks. But it's also frustrating because of how close it got.
