  1. 3. Thor (slightly ahead of Dr Strange) 2. Black Widow 1. GotG vol. 3
  2. yeah, i can rattle off a bunch too. i'm not suggesting doing away with them. but just like in a Holly/Christian situation, the billed weights don't make sense when compare amongst each other. in nobody's thought process was "230 > 225 so christian is bigger and will beat holly". they are arbitrary numbers that have no bearing on storyline. just formulate an equation. cuts out all of the "bill them as real weights. no, no, Strowman needs to be larger than life" bs.
  3. i've never thought about it before, but why are Japanese belts designed with English text?
  4. the other weird thing about billed weight is who cares? unless you making it a part of the wrestler's gimmick (i.e. "the 500lb Monster") then who even pays attention to it? if there were even loosely disconnected weight divisions then you could run storylines off it. but it's not. just come up with a system (actual + 20% or something) and be done with it.
  5. mentioned this in the DC film thread, thought i should post it here.
  6. i hated the Tumbler for all the same reasons. Still call it the Bat-Tank. my favorite Batmobiles are the '60s TV show and BTAS. i think of Hush as a Batman "greatest hits" run, since each issue essentially focuses on a different villain. I enjoyed it for what it was. I wouldn't call it an all-time great, but is a great introduction to the character and his world. The two best parts were a returned Jason Todd (still one of my favorite panels with him in the graveyard in a pseudo-modern Robin outfit) and the attempted rehab of Riddler. Unrelated to Hush, i really liked that they ha
  7. re: M. Night Shyamalan: i saw "6th Sense". thought it was pretty decent but saw the twist coming very early on. never saw "Unbreakable". saw "Signs". i thought it was OK but never really made it to "good" territory then some friends and i rented "The Village". it was plodding. the movie was so fucking boring that i said "i'm just going to pretend these people are Amish and that it's not actually set in 1600 or whatever." Lo and behold, that was the twist of the movie. It was at this time that i swore off all of this person's movies. I haven't seen any, and i won't, for as l
  8. to be fair, has Meltz given anything Jericho's done more than 4 1/2 stars? Maybe 2002 Jericho just knew his ceiling.
  9. off the cuff, i'd definitely put it in my top 5. Possibly as high as 3. would have to think it over for a while.
  10. but inquiring minds need to know....... (where?) does it place on YOUR list?
  11. at this point, they're the closest we're gonna get. i'm not complaining, just pointing out that if cable companies would have been proactive, they wouldn't be in the situation they're in now. subscription numbers have to be dropping year after year. and they still haven't put forward a plan to turn it around. ridiculous.
  12. i cut the cord about 10 years ago. i said i'd be back once the cable companies wised up and offered ala carte programming. the rise of streaming makes that even more unlikely, so fuck 'em.
  13. thank you, now i will not be watching this ep (or the Vice one). sometimes you just don't want to know.
  14. i've spent many, many hours today going back and reading old posts of his. i don't know if it's cathartic, per se, but it helped me connect with the man even moreso than before. Among the many interesting quotes, this one stands out: well, that, and the fact that he defended Roman Reigns and bought into him as a top guy way back in 2013 when the Shield was still together. And all of the cat posts. And his wealth of knowledge on SF/Horror/Fantasy books and authors. i even found some of my own posts saying that i would check out this book or that author that i never followed
  15. Harley Race was already pretty much out of wrestling when i started watching. He had a run in WWF as "King" Harley Race, but never seemed to be worthy of his status as a legend. When he came back to manage Vader in WCW, he just seemed old and, again, didn't live up to the mythos. It's a shame that WWE never put out a documentary (although there is one sold through Highspots that's decent). I assume that he's a beneficiary of so much more footage being available now than it used to be. What are some of the great Race moments from history?
  16. ah, hell. i just saw this and my day is crushed. John was a hell of a good dude. i talked with him multiple times via PM about Golden Age comics, custom action figures, punk music, and whatever else was going on. i actually sent him some comic books just last summer. hope he got a chance to read them. Like many others, i loved his baseball HOF threads that were fated to be shut down before anybody else would have a chance to respond. He was always good for a laugh, a kind word of encouragement, or an out-of-touch statement that just made you cock your head for a minute. But even at the wo
  17. Jiri is THAT DUDE! i'd been watching him in Rizin for the past few years and he was dominant, but i always wondered how he'd stack up against UFC competition. we got our answer, but i want more.
  18. i also enjoyed the Rebirth special. DCeased was a really fun series (i still need to read the spinoffs). Doomsday Clock was solid, but its publishing schedule negated so much of its larger impact. nothing else really lived up to the promise of the Rebirth one shot. i didn't read all of King's run, but what i did was fine. Nightwing was downright horrible for two years. i really need to read Snyder's Metal and Death Metal stories.
  19. ECW Heatwave 2000 is what i'll be watching on Monday. AEW Blood & Guts is what i'm most psyched for this month.
  20. ah, that stirs the ol' memory. the show as a whole was absolutely fantastic and the main was definitely a highlight. i must've just lumped everything together in my brain.
  21. that is a hell of a list. i honestly don't recall your #1 pick. will have to search that one out. bump your 2-4 up and you get my top 3. Omega vs Moxley in the Lights Out match is the only thing that makes my list and not yours. i'm not as high on Stadium Stampede as everyone else seems to be. it was fine, but i wouldn't put it anywhere near my top list. can't wait to see where Blood & Guts ranks!
  22. The Shadow Casey knows!
  23. Usman faced Edwards at UFC on Fox 17 back in 2015. Fun aside, the three early prelims for that card featured Ngannou, Vicente Luque, and Usman
  24. bring on Nick Aldis and the NWA belt!
  25. Mortal Kombat 2021 is very forgettable. Cole is complete fucking trash and sucked the energy out of every scene he was in. Kano was king sized. Goro being ahenchman on the same level as the girl with wings is unforgivable. even the MK song over the credits was uninspired.
