  1. Did anyone else here grow up with David Braben's Frontier? Well he's back and he's brought a sequel with him. The Beta is available now for you to buy and play. Not me though. I'm too poor.


    I don't think I've ever been so excited about a game before. I mean come on, it's Grand Theft Auto meets Rogue Squadron!



  2. Just read this. I'm not ashamed to admit that The Ultimate Warrior was my favourite wrestler as a kid so I'm all kinds of sad now. At least he went out on a high note I guess ...


    Thank you for the Hogan match.

    Thank you for the Savage match at Mania.

    Thank you for the Rude match at Slam.


    I'm gonna watch some promos.

  3. That is true. Virginia Hey (the Warrior Woman) was a model and she gave one of the best performances in the film.


    Same with Angry Anderson, a rock star and one of the few good things about Thunderdome.


    I've been waiting for this film for 15 years. Nearly there!

  4. Over budget, over schedule, but in the can! Filming has finished on one of Hollywoods most "cursed" films in Namibia except for the usual pickups. The things in post now.


    One pic of Tom Hardy has been realeased showing what appears the be the same costume as the old films.





    And here is Hugh Keyes-Byrne as the villain, albeit in horrible lighting conditions.



    George Miller has promised "a stunt renaissance" with Fury Road. In an age where most stunts are performed inside a computer, the Fury Road people have claimed that there will be hundreds of stunts in this film that were filmed in actual sunlight.


    Real stunts in a modern film? Yeah right! It sounds too good be true. But the footage does look promising.




    Release date TBC but expect Xmas at the earliest.


    Stars Hardy, Theron and a bunch of teenage supermodels with little acting talent including Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Bug Girl from X-Men First Class. Beast is also in the film and Nathan Jones for wrestling fans.


    Question One) Welcome everyone, to Dayton Ohio!

    Talk is cheap. We have 9 people willing to do the talking. Only 3 will get paid. Decide who you want to listen to for the next 3 hours of programming. Heenan, Ross and Monsoon took a wonder drug before the show that cured all their health problems. Unfortunately for Monsoon, it will wear off after the show.


    Question Two) Hunter's Handicap

    An SUV parks in a handicap spot and out jumps Jean-Paul Levesque. He collects his gym bag, places a handicap pass on the dash and enters the building. But what is Hunter's handicap? Apparently it's a match. It seems JPL has had a change of heart and is now willing to give a fired WWE Superstar a second chance ... if he can beat him in a match. What a guy! But that's not all. Triple H will double down by giving TWO (count em) rejects another crack at the mid-card.


    Question Three) Kurt Angle Has A Dream

    Kurt Angle has this crazy dream of his. He wants to wrestle a legend tonight at Cyber Sunday. He's narrowed it down to about six guys but he can't decide who should get that dream match. He is a wrestling enthusiast who wants to know what he's missing. He needs to know that he is the best. Help Kurt Angle's dream come true.


    Question Four) The Ghost And The Darkness

    Undertaker's special effects seem to be going out of control here. The usual storm effects have been augmented by the emergeny sprinkler system "raining" on the audience. The sprinklers continue to rain throughout the match, eerily lit by the ultra-violet lights which bathe the ring. It kinda makes sense considering the emo depression inherent in both characters and gives a spooky feeling to the match.


    Question Five) An Evening Of Spoken Word With CM Punk

    CM Punk is the best in the world. He shows up here at The Arena's Own Cyber Sunday to remind us all and after ripping my booking to shreds, he throws down an open challenge to Ultimate Warrior, Hacksaw Duggan, Bushwhacker Luke or Eugene for a promo right here right now. So vote you idiots! ... Waitaminute ... waitaminute ... it's somebodys music! That "somebody" walks down to the ring carrying two folding chairs, sets them up and invites Punk to a 15 minute debate on professional wrestling and Punk's place in it. To Punk's dismay that "somebody" is not one of the wrestlers he listed.


    Question Six) GET THE TABLES!!!

    The Hardy Boyz and the Dudley Boyz are back. And they brought tables WHAT? They brought ladders WHAT? They brought chairs WHAT? In fact they brought so many TLCs that they couldn't possibly break them all in the alloted time. They appeal to the back for some help. About four more live bodies should do the trick.


    Question Seven) Are You Ready?

    You know the history. You know the rivalry. The players are Hogan, Hall, Nash, Syxx, Savage versus HHH, HBK, Gunn, Dogg, Chyna (please note if you choose Elimination Chamber then Syxx/Savage & Dogg/Chyna will be omitted from the match) All wrestlers are circa 1997/98. Vince McMahon is in D-X's corner, Eric Bischoff is in nWo's corner.


    Question Eight) Your Main Event Of The Evening

    The match is up to them. The ending - to a certain extent - is up to you. Both men are circa 2002. Broken shells of their former selves yes, but not as bad as it would be if they wrestled now in their current conditions. The first two options end with a Babyface Embrace and beer drinking between the two. The last option ends with a riot.

    Real American, Rick Derringer



    I'll do the rest later

  7. Of course not. You lack vision, but I see a place where people get on and off the freeway. On and off, off and on all day, all night. Soon, where Toon Town once stood will be a string of gas stations, inexpensive motels, restaurants that serve rapidly prepared food. Tire salons, automobile dealerships and wonderful, wonderful billboards reaching as far as the eye can see ... My God, it will be beautiful.

    "The studio is very pleased with the work that Brett [Ratner] has done as a producer and director on past projects. They are now very interested in seeing what he can do with helping finally bring this group of iconic superheroes to the big screen!"



    This is a worst case scenario. Apparently McG got onto the short-list too. It won't come to this. The world is not that cruel.

  9. There are 4 possible ways to end The Streak:


    1) A total celebration of The Undertaker character and mythology. He wrestles Kane, bring back Bearer, Foley runs in as Mankind, etcetra. It would be a Casket Match inside a Hell Cell, the casket gets incinerated and the ashes of The Undertaker get stuffed in his own urn. The urn is carried away by Druids.


    2) They go the "Death And Life Of Superman" approach. A Lesnar-esque "Doomsday" noob debuts, pins Undertaker and recieves the push of a lifetime. Undertaker becomes "the guy that lost to Doomsday/Whoever" until he returns again in few years like everyone does for that dreaded comeback.


    3) Undertaker wrestles someone he wants to wrestle, and focuses on performance. The match is a doozy. Taker retires with class, becomes a manager/commentator or whatever.


    4) Undertaker turns heel, like full Ministry heel, and brings forth the Apocalypse until Bruce Campbell falls out of the damn sky with Mr Pitt from Seinfeld who shouts "If Undertaker retires undefeated all of mankind will consumed by this evil!! ... Now will thou quest for The Streak??" Campbell locks and loads.





    I don't see Cena ending The Streak, but I would like to see the match. Punk, Bryan and Miz are not "Streak Worthy" if I may say so. Fine atheletes sure, but just too ... mortal? Does that make sense? It's tough to find believable threats to The Streak these days.


    Sting is an unnattainable dream, like Hogan/Austin.

    Variety reports that Affleck is the main man for WB’s Justice League, now that Christopher Nolan is officially out as director. The superhero team up will feature Batman and Superman, alongside Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and the Flash. If Nolan’s Batman trilogy is any indication, bolstered by the apparent tone and palette of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, we can look forward to Justice League likely continuing the “realistic and gritty” aesthetic. Affleck’s latest directorial effort will be on display this fall with the political thriller, Argo.


    It wasn’t all that long ago that Affleck wasn’t taken seriously as an actor, let alone a writer or a director. That was before the critical and commercial success of Gone Baby Gone and The Town. Back in the fall of 2010, we reported that Affleck was once in contention for the director’s chair for what was to become Man of Steel. If Affleck decides to take on this property, it will likely take him out of contention for other films, at least in a directorial capacity. Justice League is looking to butt heads with newly-appointed director Joss Whedon’s The Avengers 2some time in 2015.



    I'me not sure what frightens me more: the thought of a "dark and gritty" Justice League, or Ben Afflecks involvement in any capacity. Justice League sounds like a never ending joke thats gets a new punchline every month. Everything about it sounds so ... wrong. To be honest, I was expecting Stephen Sommers to be announced. That shows you how little faith I have in WB and JLA at this time. :(

  11. Or why the freed police officers, armed with billy clubs, charged an army of anarchists equipted with automatic weapons, and somehow were not mowed down in a steamy pile of badges and bacon?



    This is the one Bizarro moment I cannot forgive. I was expecting Batman to swoop down and zap his EMP thing or whatever it was he was using during the Batcycle chase, disabling everybodies weapons, forcing them to use their fists. But no ... he just blows up a Batmobile, flys away and lets everybody shoot each other.

  12. You guys are wrong about the ending




    That's not Bruce Wayne in the cafe. Bruce Wayne is dead. The man Alfred is actually seeing is THOMAS ELLIOT. Thomas Elliot murders Alfred then returns to Gotham to mess with John Blake. VOILA There's your next movie.


    But seriously I loved the ending. The hero dies AND lives at the same time! It's a win/win really.


    I don't buy their relationship lasting for more than 12 months. She will move on and Bruce will grow another goatee. But there is always HOPE! Hope rises! But in reality the world is too small for someone like Bruce Wayne to disappear. But let the poor guy have some hope. He's been through enough.





    Anyways about the movie. I loved most of it. I agree some characters, especially Alfred Pennyworth, seemed to be living in the Bizarro world.


    I loved everything in the Lazarus Pit, my favourite section of the movie, especially the chiropractor scene. Ridiculuous and unbelievable yes, but just so damn badass. If anyone should survive such a procedure it's Batman or maybe Jack Bauer.


    The CIA Agent was a ****ing HORRIBLE actor and Cottilaird made me yearn for Gyllenhaal. I felt like like we were back in that Wayne's World gas station.


    And where did Alfred go? They just ditched him like Aunt May in SM3. I expected him to show up in the Lazarus Pit, having been kidnapped earlier by Bane. "I told you so." "Alfred? Is that you?" "Yes Master Wayne. I've been here for a month. Let me tell you what I've learned about Banes childhood." The "old white guy" could easily have been Alfred and give him a chance to undo his Bizarro-ness from the earlier scene. OMG imagine if it was Michael Caine punching his spine back in?? WHAM! That would be the gif to end all gifs.


    But in the end, I feel this will become my favourite film of the trilogy.
