    Jordan is a great talent, even his super early stuff like Friday Night Lights is very nuanced.

    It’s because Gekko is a fucking moron.

    Help Influence Episode 57!

    Unpopular opinion: Days of Thunder is better than Top Gun. Also has Michael Rooker, Nicole Kidman, Robert Duvall and BABY John C. Reilly.

    I was (and still am, admittedly) a huge Rikishi and Too Cool mark. Scotty is a trainer for NXT. Rikishi is basically a hype man for his very successful sons. But, poor Brian never got it together again. I was extremely saddened to see his passing, but after such a chaotic life, I hope he’s finally found peace. And my heart goes out to the King. No father should ever have to bury a son.

    Heck, I wouldn’t complain if Hunter gave 205 Live their own tag belts.

    Both shows have a World Title, Secondary title , women’s and tag belts. Plus the cruiser belt, which is basically it’s own roster. I don’t think the tag divisions are as healthy as they could be, but it seems reasonable enough now.

    In 2000, The WWF had the World, IC, European, Hardcore, Light Heavyweight, Women’s and Tag belts all active. Plus WCW had equivalents to all of those.

    I dunno, Ziggler and Rollins (and Miz before them) did a lot of the IC belt. Styles has made the WWE look pretty great. Yeah, Lesnar has hurt the universal belt, a lot, but hopefully a Strowman win could help that.

    Those same “mainstream conservatives” who are okay with locking kids in cages, as long as they’re brown, suddenly want moral high ground? Edit: I’m done with this. My blood pressure can’t take it.

    And, yeah, those tweets were shitty and dumb. I’ve said shitty and dumb things too. But I’ve grown as a person. If we can’t allow growth, what’s the point of changing? Gunn is a good man, with a big heart, who was trying to be funny and screwed up, and apologized for it. Cernovich is an actual rapist who went after Gunn because Gunn is critical of Cheeto Hitler. Disney made a huge mistake.

    Which main stream conservatives? Ted Cruz? His statement was weak as hell, and he’s pretty spineless in general. He suddenly became the biggest supporter of Captain Grab ‘Em by the Pussy, when it was advantageous. I have no problem with actual conservatives, but fuck these false pious monsters.

    I dug Kong: Skull Island, a lot. This looks like a proper war of the monsters. I’m down.

    Love that they’ve swapped Orm and Arthur’s hair colors from the comics. Love.

    Every Film You've Watched in 2018

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom: I see what they were attempting. I appreciate the shift in the series. There were some great moments and visuals, Ted Levine was fantastic. But the story was a mess. Good techinical filmmaking, not a good film. Red Sparrow: Not bad, but the shine is really off the Jennifer Lawrence Apple for me. She’s not as strong an actress as she’s been treated. But, Jeremy Irons and Ciran Hinds should probably be in everything.

    Is Black Adam in this? I also marked hard for Ron Cephas Jones.

    Glass

    This looks fantastic, by the way.

    Glass

    I’m sorry, but not seeing the second film in a trilogy is not a marketing fail. It’s pretty common knowledge by now that Spilt was a sequel to Unbreakable. It’s like not seeing Empire and complaining that you don’t understand why Vader is Luke’s dad in Jedi.

    The guy directed Tromeo and Juliet. Disney knee his exact sense of humor when they hired him.

    What are you watching and enjoying?

    I’m not stupid. Like, I know it’s a soap opera. But the sheer commitment from the cast keeps me going. I know the pitch was Twin Peaks meets Archie. That’s a lie. It’s much more “Passions in the 50’s with the Occasional Comic reference.” But it weirdly works for me. And I’m gonna hold out for a while, because Werewolf Jughead is inevitable.

    Oh, I can’t agree more about the cast. They are all fantastic. Especially the kids, but credit is due to the parents too. Especially Skeet Ulrich.

    I fucking love Riverdale. I could not give one reason why.
  24. October 11 2019, The cast list is insane: Charlize Theron as Morticia Oscar Issac as Gómez Chloe Grace-Moretz as Wednesday Finn Wolfhard as Pugsley Bette Midler(!) as Grandmama Nick Kroll (!!!) as Fester (!!!!!!!!!!) Alison Janney is voicing the villain. It’s stop motion and based on the original comics.

    Bumblebee

    I dunno, man, John Tuturro, John Goodman, John Malkovich, Anthony Hopkins and Frances GODDAMNED McDormand couldn’t save the previous movies. Joking aside, I don’t hate this trailer. And I always turn up for Villian Cena.
