    RIP Stan Lee

    Yeah, it's getting widespread credence. R.I.P. Stan - to whatever extent you're a geek, we owe it partially to you and your impact on comics and geek culture.

    Time to take my little brother to a Pokémon movie again! He'll be so excited, bless his little hair...

    Mighty kind! But as long as we all agree that trolling Preston is the noblest aim, everyone will get along!

    Episode 58: Jean-Claude Van Damme

    True fact: Mike once edited an edition of Comic Reel-lief to make it less funny! I'd purposefully swapped Ryan Reynolds' comic movie roles around and he edited them together to be correct. Needless to say, I had the chicken and he had the fish, and I was made to look quite the fool! ....yes, that last line is a Brothers Wilson in-joke.

    That the whole thing really annoys @Preston is just the sweetest icing on the cake!

    I believe she starred in Nickelodeon/Disney Channel sitcom. That's the extent of my knowledge about her.

    Totally by chance too! The Smackdown roster are staying at my hotel. I arrived to find the entrance cordoned off and then the next thing I know, I'm having a selfie with Daniel Bryan!

    HHH also picked up an injury in that match, and he was the youngest guy involved.
  9. I mean, all tag teams are formulaic to some extent - the big teams in the 1980s being a prime example. It's more the storylines that they involve themselves in that, to me, defines them. Think how damn bland The Usos were a couple of years ago before they turned heel and had an epic feud with The New Day. As far as I'm concerned, the Outlaws never had a big match or major rivalry that defined them as an all-time great match - they were merely the most over team in a poor era of tag wrestling. Incidentally, I think history will be kinder to the New Day, as they've not only had some great matches/feuds, but their promos, side projects and ability to switch out members through the Freebird rule have kept them fresh and given them longevity.

    Weeklong events on The Show

    I like the way Mr Smis thinks! ....that doesn't really work with Mike's surname...
  11. If you get a chance, I'd recommend the Attitude Era podcast which is hosted by 3 university chums under 30. The main host is Irish and watched the entire era (defined as WM14 to WM17) contemporaneously, whereas his English colleagues have respectively watched the latter half of the era at the time, and wasn't watching wrestling at all at the time. I bring this up because the guy who didn't start watching wrestling until 2006 (the poor guy) immediately took a dislike to the New Age Outlaws and managed to ruin them for the other hosts by pointing out how formulaic they were.

    The Flickchart Forum - join in!

    See, I never get whether kids these days regards "the hot shit" as a positive or a negative. I am truly on the Toland train in that respect.

    Notwithstanding the Flickchart Forum, I'd put it at #2 between the original and H20. Does everything you could want, there's 3 final girls of sorts and tips it's hat to pretty much all the previous instalments (including Halloween 3). It isn't flawless - there are tonal issues - and it wears its sequel status on its sleeve, but it was a great cinematic experience.
