  1. Please explain "the problem" as it relates to Selma Minorities are nominated some years and win, some years not. You can't fall back on the lazy argument that the whole academy is all old racist white men unless minorities are consistently left out every year. Hollywood is supposed to be a bastion of liberalism EXCEPT during Oscar season, when it turns back into an old white men network? You can't have it both ways. I prefer the following explanations: 1. The academy simply didn't like Selma as much as the competing films. 2. The academy members thought the other members would vote for Selma en masse so they were free to vote for other films and actors. Enough academy members did this and it effectively split the vote ("I thought you were voting for Selma. Oh shit.") 3. The producers of Selma either didn't campaign enough or campaigned too late. Personally, I saw what the subject matter was and noticed that Oprah was involved and I said, "fuck this shameless Oscar grab bullshit" but that's just me.
  2. That's like a crackhead running a...uh...place that sells crack or whatever.
  3. I thought this episode was kind of weak. Outside of the Mike involvement and the final discovery of the family mystery, I thought it was a little slow and tedious, like it was a half hour of content stretched to a one-hour show. I hoped this would be the end of the Kettleman family storyline so I was bummed by the preview of next week's show. I loved Breaking Bad so maybe my expectations are just too high. There's also the problem endemic to all prequels where we all know how it ends up and we're getting impatient to get there. Who wants to see Darth Vader as a kid, after all? I remain cautiously optimistic but there's no way they stretch out the transformation to Saul Goodman beyond season 1, right?
  4. Hey everybody let's talk about TV shows and then Gregggggg will ham-fistedly shoehorn a shill for his friends.
  5. When I hear the name of that show, all I can think of is
  6. It seems that every time there's an intricate women's match, Drake is the referee and you can tell he plays a big part in helping direct/cue the wrestlers up. I wonder if Drake is working closely with the gals and Del Rey to help set up the matches. Good call! I noticed Drake refs a lot of the women's matches but never really considered the reason. The PWG fan in me wishes Drake had gotten a NXT run as a wrestler at least for a while.
  7. Vince is clearly trying to stave off a nosebleed and YOU KNOW WHY Edit: I had to watch this, now. And share it for all of you. So many questions. Why didn't HTM just run Hogan over? Why was Vince trying to lure a woman with a lunch sack? Was Arnold Skaaland going to jerk it in that port-a-potty?
  8. Who will be the first indy group to pull a Sun City by naming a show "We AIn't Gonna Tour Abu Dhabi"
  9. And the whole place is built by slave labor. Seriously, wonderful place to tour, guys.
  10. I seem to recall Saul saying something like, "I'm going to end up working in a Cinnabon in Omaha" when he was in the vacuum cleaner guy's basement with Walt.
  11. Bigelow's fat guy gear was awful. It made him look smaller.
  12. The difference between tattooed people and non-tattoed people is that tattooed people don't give a shit if you have tattoos or not.
  13. Man, when I was a kid, Demolition was awesome. Today, I realize they looked like two middle aged accountants gearing up for a S&M swingers weekend.
  14. If you really REALLY need to see some naked NXT chick and also Seth Rollins' junk http://deadspin.com/lets-all-look-at-seth-rollinss-dong-nsfw-1684849435 Link is obviously NSFW and also quite boring.
  15. I've been watching since around Wrestlemania 1 and I'm pretty sure (as sure as an older dude can be about anything today) it wasn't mentioned on WWF TV until the Attitude Era.
  16. I'm not sure what I like better: David Otunga goes to the Grammys in his sweater and bow tie gimmick or Django photobomb
  17. Australia has no idea that all that talk about Texas seceding is just bluster
  18. I could have done without the "Dre and Cube are still of the people" intro. I guess Cube took a few minutes off from filming Are We There Yet part 3 to film a quick promo. Nice job keeping their security detail out of the shots. Or even more underhanded, they're all extras and this was shot at the same time as the movie.
  19. I'm having a hard time remembering what was particularly dickish about it. I mostly recall he was just a guy who got into wrestling to make money and wasn't markish or hung up on wrestling's stupid "traditions." I thought it was funny that he refused to give up the front seat of the car to Raven.
  20. How did Israel's Mark Lewin work a Friday night show? Shameful.
  21. Saw it last night. You're right, it's an extremely contrived story, but it's good. Ethan Hawke's foray into genre films is paying dividends. It's funny, he's going to be starring in another movie this year called "Regression", and I know I'm going to get it confused with this one. Glad you enjoyed it. What got me was the ending.
  22. I ffwd past both guys so....it's a toss up? If Lethal wrestled Ziggler, my DVR might fall asleep.
  23. This is honestly the best summation of Jay Lethal you'll see IMO. Just nothing special. I FFWD past his matches unless I like his opponent. His style is very early 2000s indies and light as a feather in the worst possible way you can take that. Aside from developing some great impersonations, I don't think he's improved since 2003. The Lethal Combination (weak STO backbreaker into an equally weak Downward Spiral) doesn't look like it could break an egg. The Lethal Injection is great as an out-of-nowhere counter but really really stupid as a straight-up finisher.
