  1. Yesterday
  2. In both Jump Street movies, I found myself fast forwarding to whenever Ice Cube was on screen.
  3. The original. It's such a wildly uneven film. Excited to review it with Duane. Lots to talk about. The Upside: not bad. Terribly predictable, but anchored by some amazing performances. Night School: I think I'm in love with Tiffany Haddish. 21 Jump Street: still fucking hilarious. 22 Jump Street: beating a dead horse. Features: 84 Shorts: 15 Documentaries: 7  Rewatches: 4
  4. This week's NXT UK is the best I've seen Chris Hero in a while. Nice to see.
  5. Wow. Orton's a spoiled punk. Always has been.

    I love black olives on pizza. Always have. When we had an abundance of fresh veggies from a delivery service years ago (local farms did this through a co-op) I even put collard greens on pizza. I ate a LOT of fresh veggies that summer. They had to be used before they went bad. It was surprisingly good.
  7. Cabin Fever 2016 or 2002? The remake was inferior to the original. The 2002 version was very tongue-in-cheek. (I still cringe at the N word scene, though.) They tried to play it straight in 2016, but did not go all the way with playing it straight. There was too much camp and comedy. Either play it straight or don't. This is unfortunate. The concept of a fast-spreading lethal virus is terrifying.

    Watched Raw last night and the crowd turned heel on Natalya last week. Chanting "thank you Sasha" was cold. Not sure what WWE expected. They had to know that Sasha Banks was going to get a huge face pop when she returned. The heel turn happened way too fast, and was always destined to backfire. They should have saved that for at least a week or two. Also, where was Seth Rollins while Becky Lynch was being beaten with a steel chair? If this were real, any dude would run out to protect his girlfriend. He wouldn't hit Sasha to stop the attack, but he would stand in between her and his girlfriend. This is a huge plot hole. If Lynch can run out to save Rollins from being cheated out of his title, Rollins can save Lynch from a beating.

  10. I finally finished my first proper playthrough of this, two years later. And by playthrough, I have played through all three routes and achieved the five major endings (and a few joke endings too). I also got the end credits, and gifted my save to someone else, which means I’m now starting from square one again. Theres a reason this game has managed to hold its own, even being released in the same month as fucking Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I can’t believe I waited this long to seriously tackle it. It’s goddamn amazing. The controls can be a bit janky at times, and there are times that jumps don’t function correctly. Having to deal with one of our three characters not having proper non ripped clothing for part of her playthrough (PETITION TO PLEASE GET A2 SOME FUCKING PANTS OR MAYBE A GODDAMN SKIRT). But as rough as these things can be, they’re still pretty minor in the overall scheme of things. There are two moments that define my playthrough. The first was during a moment when I was playing as A2, when she’s getting to know Pascal’s village. I hadn’t saved in a hot moment, and I was in the process of getting the kids a slide. I accidentally triggered the events that led to Bad Things happening at the village. I closed the game, knowing I was about to lose a chunk of progress, because fuck this, I was going to get those kids their slide. And then everything that happens with that village happens, and I actually had to stop playing the game for a half hour because I was crying so hard. The second was the ending credits, or ending E. I suck, period, at shooters of that nature. I started crying at the encouraging messages, and when I accepted help, and the background chorus swelled up on the ending song, I was out and out bawling. And of course I gave up my save data. How could I not after that? go play this game. There’s a game of the year edition out now. Enjoy the dlc where you can fight Squenix’s CEO. Fucking do it.

    It took me ~25 years to appreciate olives on pizza. Especially green olives. Now I love it, but I absolutely understand the hate.
  13. Orton has always been a petulant asshole. Pretty sure he's the one who infamously took a shit in someone's gym bag.

    I think both are awful.
  15. Cabin Fever: review forthcoming Knock Knock: review forthcoming Black Panther: Killmonger is probably Marvel's best villain. Everything of this film outside the Black Panther scenes makes it one of the very best MCU films, but the action looks so horrible, it detracts for the rest fo the film. I'll never watch this again. It's going to age even worse. Features: 80 Shorts: 15 Documentaries: 7  Rewatches: 4
  16. Which match was that, and what was the blown spot?

    I went back and watched Orton pitching a fit after Kofi messed up a spot in 2009, and wow was Orton unprofessional. He's the one who should have been pushed down the card, not Kofi. Making a mistake is one thing. A total lack of professionalism is something else.
  18. Fellowship of the Ring: This bothered me in 2001 and still bothers me. The Orcs are too weak. You should not have multiple Orcs fall before one character, whether it be a human, dwarf or Elf. Having Orcs get killed by Hobbits undermines them even more and makes them significantly less scary. They were totally buried. Films watched: 25
  19. Spider-Man: Far from Home: One part of Mysterio's final revenge makes sense and would seriously mess up Peter Parker's life, but the other part makes no sense as it could be nullified and turned into a positive in literally thirty minutes of real time - thirty minutes that could easily be condensed into two minutes of movie time. I actually saw this 7/22. Films watched: 24
  20. XD for the record Alabama is a dirtier south than Tennessee.

  22. Our Comic-Con International: San Diego 2019 coverage concludes with interviews of the Batman: Hush cast and crew! In order, we hear from: writer Ernie Altbacker, director Justin Copeland, actors Jason Spisak, Hynden Walch, Bruce Thomas, Geoffrey Arend, Maury Sterling, and Jason O'Mara. Thank you, Donovan!

  23. The Hills Have Eyes 2 (2009): review forthcoming Hellboy: inappropriately maligned. Not a good movie, but not the turd everyone said it was. It felt like a Hellboy movie, but cheaper. The CGI was pretty awful for a movie like this in 2019. I liked Harbour just fine and the nods to the comic, but the story suffered as a result of all the "hey, let's homage the comics with this scene" scenes (spoiler: there are a lot of them). The Mule: Probably Eastwood's best performance since Unforgiven. This was really great. The Old Man and the Gun: Robert Redford, Danny Glover and Tom Waits as a gang in a heist film in 2019? Yes, please. Unfortunately, not a lot of Waits or Glover. Too much Casey Affleck as the investigator. Thinking back about the Game for Real Men: Sissy Spacek can still get it, man. A Simple Favor: pabulum. But decent pabulum. I'm over Anna Kendrick. I really liked Blake Lively in this one. More dimension than I've seen her do before. Skyscraper: this was just pure dumb fun. As plausible as any Mission Impossible film. The Rock is obviously charismatic and Neve Campbell was lovely. Adrift: I don't get the appeal of Shailene Woodley. I don't understand it. Like watching someone who never knows where she is. Awful. Ant Man & The Wasp: I don't think I've seen this this year so I won't count it as a rewatch. Features: 77 Shorts: 15 Documentaries: 7  Rewatches: 4
  24. Considering the ending of Kingston / Orton, along with the kendo stick beating Orton took, this feud is lasting until Hell in a Cell, yeah?
