  1. Tim Burton's Batman is really not very good at all.  It was good for 1989 when I was 14 and there were no comic book movies to compare it to, but today it's just embarrassing.  It was considered "more serious and dark" back then because we were stupid.  Watch it today and you'll see it's one (very short) step up from Adam West.

    I'm always bothered when Meltzer verbally fellates Doc, using this spot as proof of his strength.  It's like Dave's such a mark for Doc or maybe for strength and fitness that he forgets it's a cooperative spot.  Sure, Doc is strong, but Gordy is doing half the work there.  I was actually there in person, not far from the ring, and I can tell you it looked phony as fuck, and really dumb from a "how is that supposed to hurt?" perspective.

  3. I flipped through his alleged autobiography a while back and he really came across like a mark for himself.  An example: He suffered severe injuries and almost bled himself out legit punching through a limo window with his bare hand.   You see, he turned down the safer method of breaking it with a lead pipe because "Goldberg wouldn't do that."  :rolleyes:

     

    I feel like he held grudges against anyone who didn't treat him like a megastar, an NFL legend and the baddest dude on the planet.

    I'm late to the party but god damn, only Kyle Shanahan can have an illegal play in his playbook and not know it's an illegal play. And this man cashes paychecks as an offensive coordinator.

    I need more details on this.

    You can debate what's worse: the OC who wrote the play not knowing it was illegal, or the refs officiating the game not knowing.  The play was only called back because a running back didn't set properly, not because it was against the rules. 

     

    Former ref Mike Carey knew, but he's an analyst for CBS now. 

     

    So many trick plays in so many games yesterday.  The curmudgeon in me feels like this will work itself out in a few weeks and we'll get back to real football.

  5. I'll see your Community and raise you 30 Rock. I really don't get why that show was so loved. Any time I tried to watch it, it was shit. Just complete shit.

     

    Oh, and a callback to some months prior, but Terminator 3 is great. It's nearly as good as Terminator 2. As far as the series goes, it's the second best Terminator. It had a really ballsy finish at a time where directors and writers were weary of giving audiences something other than a Hollywood ending. I also really dug the realization that you can't stop the future from occurring, at best, you can only delay the inevitable. Good action sequences and I felt that the humor worked as well.

     

    Damn straight.  I'll go one better and say Terminator 4 gets way more shit than it deserves and is a passable-to-good entry in the series.  People were too wrapped up in T2 nostalgia to give it a chance.  But god damn that movie had some excellent callbacks to earlier films in the series and if you didn't like the CG Young Arnold cameo you can fuck right off.

     

    Sam Worthington's coming and going Aussie accent is a little rough, though.

    THE BRIDGE is likely going to be canceled.

     

    Wait what

     

    The Bridge has been great this season.  The first few episodes were all over the place but it came into focus a few episodes ago and it's firing on all cylinders.

     

    The Bridge has been awesome this season!  They can't cancel it!  I forbid it!

     

     

    Sad Fausto just wants to go to a quincenera.

  7. The Bucks won me over when Nick Jackson did a double-handspring into a back rake at a St. Louis Anarchy show.

     

    LOL they've been doing that forever.  Fucking hilarious spot.  It's better when the fans chant "holy shit" afterwards...or when it's no DQ and they use an actual rake.

     

    That Kyle/AJ match looks awesome.  A battle of world champions, actually.  Did PWG demand Kyle not job?  :P
