  1. It's cringe/embarrassment of the highest order, and no result can make either wrestler look better. It's simple-minded Halloween kiddy bullcrap.
  2. Roads

    Isn't that completely counter-intuitive?
  3. Minnesota Timberwolves

    The Wolves logos, colors, etc? Fine. Their uniforms are boring as hell and devoid of personality or anything that suggests they stand out.

    Agreed, that was indeed stupid. These advanced beings were all over the world but never encountered rain? Fog? Mist? Any large body of water? That said, the movie used aliens as a plot device for the real core message of the movie: Faith and belief that everything happens for a reason. Is it executed in a weird way? For sure. But I, again, enjoyed the presentation, the actors, and the script. I don't let the gimmick bother me.

    Not really fair to MNS. He's a fine moviemaker for the most part. Signs, Village, Sixth Sense, Unbreakable? These are all very enjoyable movies, IMHO. Even Lady in the Water was reasonably decent. I'll totally grant you that The Happening was one of the worst movies I've ever seen, and I've heard nothing but bad things about After Earth and Avatar, but he's coming around. He wrote Devil and that was a pretty solid movie for what a minimalist concept it was. I've heard very good things about Split, too. Here's the major problem M.Night has always had, and that's the distributors and marketing team behind him got absolutely drunk as hell on making him the new Hitchcock. Granted, he kind of did that to himself with the whole cameo bits and twist endings people came to expect, but when your goal is to make movies that are mysterious, nuanced, and interesting becomes torn down by a marketing team that calls you "the new master of horror" and says "the ending will haunt you," there's no way to live up to that, much less having everything you do get compared to one of the best filmmakers ever. I guess I'm happy to defend M. Night because his movies are unique without being pretentious, and the style of his storytelling appeals to me. If moviegoers are upset that his twist endings aren't blowing their minds, that's on them, not him. Just look at his movies as movies and less as "how far did the twist ending hit the ball" and you'll enjoy it more. For your part, sure, I can totally see why the dialogue would annoy you, but it seems to me like it's just not your flavor of movie, which is totally acceptable. The subjective nature of movies is beautiful in this regard. That said, anyone over the age of 11 who feels like The Emoji Movie is a masterpiece should be drowned.

    I think it's maybe an issue with the dialogue? I feel like the cast does a very good job working with a fairly wooden old-timey sounding script which is meant to be delivered in something of a wooden way.
  7. Movies, Movies, and Movies

    So I totally messed up and watched Stepmom tonight. It's one of those "why the hell would you ever watch this" movies that is blatantly designed to make you cry and remember a lot of dead people, miss your mom, and weep brazenly in a pile of dirty dishes. I'm stuck here in my bedroom at midnight sobbing and feel like a moron. Damn you, Susan Sarandon.

    Holy crap. Very depressing.

    I feel like ESPN will greatly regret it's mingling with Barstool Sports.

    I think the Cubs kind of blew their wad in order to beat the Nats. I don't fear LA like I used to, but the Cubs need Lackey to throw a complete game in order to rest some blown out arms. Then again for all I know the Cubs could come up and lay up 12 runs a game in a sweep. I just don't know. They're a weird, resilient team that is successful in spite of themselves sometimes. Nothing about this series will surprise me whatsoever. My gut says Dodgers in 6, but who the hell knows.

    Why such vitriol? I get it, the Yankees are a hateable team because they won 4 titles in the 90s and are historically one of sport's most successful franchises. Yeah, the Cubs won last year so they inherit all the bandwagon hate and Red Sox-ian contempt, blah blah. It's just such an unoriginal hatred is all.

    Ugh. That was stressful.
  13. It's so odd that Vince made his company huge by letting the fans dictate the medium, but makes money somehow in spite of himself by feeling like he has to dictate the medium to the fans. When he's dead, here's hoping that something will change, but I doubt it.
  14. New Florida Gators Unifrom

    What is it with teams that have awesome blue and orange schemes feel the unbreakable need to pollute their looks with black and gray? Stop this madness. The gator skin thing could be neat in some other form of execution, but these horrible black helmets and gray uniforms are reprehensible.
