  1. How much time, exactly, do you think Dwayne Johnson is willing to invest in Smackdown at this point in his life?
  2. Keith was pretty badly injured irl, right? Glad to see him back. Sweet jesus, Nikki is (like I said in the last post) one of my favorite wrestlers... and I know there's a long tradition of gimmicky MITB cash-ins (cough cough: Miz last year) but this is like 24/7 championship-level stupid. I'm sorry. Good for her (as a person) but story-wise, nooooooooooooooooo. This all kinda makes her look like her "superpower" is... opportunism? I agree about Karrion Cross. I don't care for him, but what's the point of just tossing him into Raw like this? It felt like nothing more than an extremely
  3. I know it's wrestling crowd-pleasing 101, but I personally don't enjoy mostly-retired wrestlers coming back for one-offs to "save the day". It's the "losing to a legend" get out jail free card. I was excited about her return, I think she's great (and I'm happy she's still employed)... but this... ehhhhhh. I want ass-kicking, Scotch badger Nikki Cross back. It's all been very inorganic and needlessly fast-track-y. On that note, I'm fine with Rhea losing. I don't think they should have handed her the belt right out of the gate, and her title reign has felt like wheel-spinning to me. At
  4. Obviously losing Braun ****ing sucks, but I'm guessing there was also some kind of behind the scenes problems, considering how much of a fan favorite he is. Ruby Riott... that one sucks as well because they probably axed her to make room for more eye-candy wrestlers. Guess I should just be happy Nikki Cross didn't get dropped during her hiatus.
  5. Regarding Backlash: I think WWE writers are starting to equate delayed gratification with good story. All title retentions except for one feel-good tag-team win where the Mysterios had already beaten Ziggler twice. Yay. It was all entertaining on a technical level, the in-ring talent is top notch right now, but good lord do I not care where any of these title stories are going at this point. The prime example being the Asuka/Flair/Ripley match... really fun but the ending killed it. Let Asuka out of being a third wheel and start wrestling other people, please. Also: I wasn't rea
  6. That was odd and anticlimactic. So, Alexa Bliss is MORE evil now... neat. that and the fact that Jax and Baesler wrestle basically every week and WWE isn't going to let them lose to a duo who doesn't.
  7. Yeah, the ship looks like Noah's ark. I'm legitimately surprised they let Rhea win, I like her but it just seems counterproductive character development-wise. Like, what's the point? WWE really seems to love the unstoppable hulk characters right now. Do they think that fans don't notice (maybe they don't?) the weird discrepancy between Rhea getting pile-driven through the stage by Gonazalez on her last night in NXT and then immediately popping up a few months later as RAW champion? Um, just throw Gonzalez at her on the next RAW and give her the belt??? I also hate when I'm proven right
  8. I'm kind of baffled at what people (the ones who like this) are actually feeling when they watch it. Like, what emotions is this film invoking in you? It's a McGuffin hunt. The stakes are obtuse. There's one actually-sort-of-sympathetic character in the Flash. Everyone else just sleepwalks through the movie as they stack and check boxes on their way to fisticuffs with the final boss. It's thematically hamfisted: all our characters have parental issues and now they must rise above them and work as a team... yay. Except there isn't any kind of clever emotional payoff to this "theme", or really a
  9. Edit: or just have her win the women's RAW championship immediately, I guess (even though her last televised match was her getting destroyed by Raquel Gonzalez)
  10. When I heard this the first thing I thought of was Jessica Chobot's weird, painted-on, vinyl skirt.
  11. Huh, I really thought Andromeda would end up killing the series for a long while. Interesting. The wheels just kinda fell off the series for me; 3 felt like a chore and Andromeda is... Andromeda. I hope they can pull me back into interest in the ME universe, but almost every "cinematic" AAA game title is just a wait and see sorta thing for me now.

    The Batman

    I understand people getting burnt out. Maybe it's just my inner Batman fanboy but even though I haven't liked a live action Batman since Dark Knight (at least the first few viewings), I still keep hoping for a great, well rounded Batman film. As it is, it seems most directors get certain elements right while dropping the ball on others. Maybe that's unavoidable, I don't know... but Batman Begins was pretty close, I think. You mentioned too many villains... I've never had a problem with it and have always wanted a more "inhabited" Gotham. Returns juggled three main antagonists fine (a stretch

    The Batman

    It's weird... the trailer looks like what I thought the third Dark Knight trilogy film was going be before it came out. Meaning I thought Rises was going to go back to a more "stylistic" vision, something closer to a mix between the first two, instead of just a stock standard Nolan aesthetic. Looks like a new villain (maybe?) with several established Batman antagonists running around already, which is cool. Riddler, I assume... and that one dude looks like he could be Penguin... and Catwoman obviously. Yeah, I'm getting a pseudo Nolan sequel with elements of the Arkham games vibe. I hope it's
  14. Just watched this recently. Maybe I shouldn't even bother putting in my two cents since it's clear that Star Wars is not for me anymore... but ye gods, what exactly were people enjoying about this? I guess it's a masterpiece compared to Rise of Skywalker, but then most things are. It feels like watching somebody play Skyrim, mixed with a less humorous and charismatic Hercules the Legendary Journeys. The episode with the sentient (or remote controlled?) AT-ST is astoundingly bad, and some of the worst costume design I've ever seen in a high budget piece of entertainment. I think, what, half the
  15. I'm a big fan of both, but: Beatles. They were more versatile. I love Mick, he has a lot of flair and showmanship, but his actual singing voice is shit. Meaning, the Stones' few attempts at ballads were usually pretty tongue in cheek, bordering on cringey. And item 2: Their Satanic Majesties Request. Again, I love the album, but it's a giant fan love letter to Sgt. Peppers.
