  1. My interest remains at zero.
  2. Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Rodrick Rules: the kids wanted me to watch this with them, so I did. I've seen another one of these (there are three). This is dumb and harmless. The kids like it. Steve Zahn is always good. Rachael Harris is delightful as the mother. I've come to the point where I have the hots for the mother character in kids movies, so that's a thing I have to reckon with. Beyond the Gates: review forthcoming Sex Boss: short film on the BtG blu ray. Not great. A few funny moments. Features: 69 Shorts: 22 Documentaries: 5 Rewatches: 0
  3. Hard to beat Rocketeer for my favorite, but there's no doubt in my mind Honey i Shrunk the Kids is his best. They should have got him to direct Ant-Man because he had a handle on that shit.
  4. TOTALLY underrated series. Nice to hear your thoughts on it.
  5. I fucking loved it when there were a bunch of dudes dressed as him in the crowd and no one knew which one he was. Very cool.
  6. I mean: look how hard Razor works to make King Kong Bundy look good. He's working very hard. Very hard.
  7. In his original run (WWF then WCW) he also made other guys look really good. The Ladder Match I posted above is tame by today's standards but completely mindblowing by 1994 standards.
  8. Not a lot of great solo moments in WCW other than mic work, but NOBODY caught dudes and fall away slammed them like Hall:
  9. The balls to interrupt a Macho Man promo
  10. Probably one of the only guys to cut weight to go to WWF in the 80s. This comes to mind at best moments:
  11. Their last great album.
  12. I literally had to think for like 45 seconds what "Crow Sting" meant. I love Scott Hall more than almost any other wrestler, but is Crow Sting creative?
  13. All I've heard of All Eyez On Me comes from a reviewer I have a bead on on CBC radio who said that it is completely without grit. I recall him praising SOC but also said it was VERY gritty. If SOC was "VERY gritty" and I thought it was a little sanitized (my only real complaint) then there's not a chance in hell that I'll see that Wikipedia biopic. Resurrection is great. I watched that with my dad, who is so far from the target audience and he liked it too. The Behind the Music's are good too as that is the era of the classic BTMs.
  14. Underwinter #1: I'm iffy. I'll give it one more. Valiant High #2: Interesting experiment, but no one asked for Archie to be superimposed over the Valiant universe and now I'm certain there's no existence of a delightful surprise. Vampirella #1: great XO Manowar #1: not sold, but I'll give it another. Adam Green's Hatchet #1: I mean, I knew this was going to be bad. Adam Strange/Future Quest #1: totally delightful. The Top Cat backup might be the best thing Dan DiDio has ever written. All New Wolverine #19: great! All-New X-Men #19: a wonderful end. Great series overall. Avengers #5.1: This came around. Fun end. Batman #20: I'm Bane, I'm Batman yadda yadda yadda. Snoooooze Black Cloud #1: decent start. I'll give it another. Booster Gold/The Flintstones #1: Uhm...brilliant? Yeah, that's the word. Captain America Steve Rogers #15: okey doke. I'm beginning to tire of alternate past storytelling at this point. Can we deal with some modern shit now? Captain Kid #5: a fun end. Champions #7: pretty good. Clean Room #17: I'm finally done. I haven't been interested in a couple months. Colossi #1: very cool. I'm in. Darkness Visible #3: still right up my alley. Deathstroke #16: I'm done here too. No thanks. Divinity III Stalinverse #4: that was it? Lame. Doc Savage The Ring of Fire #1: decent first issue. Extremity #2: still not sure what this is really about. Might give it one more. Like the tone and art. Grand Passion #4: ok, I can't continue with this.

  17. You're Next: wild hair rewatch with the house guests last night. Still holds up. Very well-written. Lead character is amazing. Genre classic. The Quiet Ones: review forthcoming Features: 64 Shorts: 21 Documentaries: 5 Rewatches: 0
  18. I figured that we could consolidate any tech support issues in one thread. I only have one right now and it isn't pressing but it has me wondering... I have a yahoo.ca email account and i keep getting spam (at least it ends up in the spam folder) with no sender address and [No Subject] written in the subject line. Anyone have any idea what that's about?
  19. The Unworthy Thor #5: ok, neat. The Wild Storm #2: y'know, for a comic that is almost exclusively people standing around talking? This is pretty good. US Avengers #4: ok, kinda fun. Uber Invasion #4: so fucking good. Uncanny X-Men #19: pretty lame. Nailbiter vol 6: sad to see what is probably the best horror comic of the last decade end. It did it brilliantly, though. Caravaggio vol 1: the Palette and the Sword: Manara's first in a series depicting the life of his favorite artist. Peasant, Painter, Swashbuckler. I loved it. It's gorgeous. Perhaps some of the nicest coloring I've ever seen on a Manara work. Beautiful. Comics: 613 Trades: 27 Graphic Novels: 14 Omnibuses: 11
  20. Wonder Woman: in short, better than anything Marvel Studios or DCEU has had to offer. Not sure if it's the best superhero movie of all time, but it's damn near close. Features: 62 Shorts: 21 Documentaries: 5 Rewatches: 0
  21. Tag: this was crazy-surprising even after watching the very misleading trailer. Review forthcoming. Features: 61 Shorts: 21 Documentaries: 5 Rewatches: 0
  22. Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern #2: This was really fun. Powerless #1: hmm. I've got the next one, so I'll try it, but it don't look good from here. Realmwalkers #1: Ugh...no thanks. Reborn #5: this is still really fun. Red Hood & The Outlaws #8: this is the first issue of this that I didn't really enjoy. Red Sonja #3: a little bit of convenience added to the story with the PHD of Hyborian Studies (makes jerkoff motion with hand) but I still love this. Redline #1: something about this is screaming that it sucks to me, but I'll give it another go. Might just be a bad first issue. Reggie and Me #3: fucking great. digging this. Royal City #1: solid. Star-Lord #4: really fun. Suicide Squad #13, 14: still great. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #68: really solid. LOVE having the Mutanimals around. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #8: This is good too. The Few #3: I'm out. The Great Divide #6: wait...is that it? I hope not. The Mighty Thor #17: I begin to tire.

  23. True Beastmaster story: my childhood was full of my dad telling me stories about his misspent youth. True stories, but he always made up weird names for his friends. I won't type the names here as it's basically my story, but one of the names was Rip Torn. So, I'm like 9 and sitting on the couch eating Lipton Chicken Noodle Soup and Beastmaster comes on TBS. The ritual murder scene is the opener and the credits play through it. The name Rip Torn comes up. I jump up and run to the hole in the floor of the laundry room (dad was in our crawlspace for some reason) "Dad! Dad! Dad!" I hear a bang and an "aw fuck!" as my dad's head hits the floor support beams above him. He crouches and walks to the opening. "What's going on?" "Dad, your friend is on TV! I think he killed a baby!" "WHAT?" (dad's a lapsed Catholic, so upon further review, his mind probably went to abortion) "Who?!" "Rip Torn!" I said. A second of a puzzled look and then a laugh and a head shake and my dad returned to the crawlspace. THAT was when I knew that everything I knew was a lie. Also, Tanya Roberts is crazy hot.
  24. Seriously one of my all-time favorite movies. The movie opens with the ritual murder of a baby. Fucking fantastic. The great Don Coscarelli.
