  1. Battle Royale II

    DUDE. You have NO idea. Fucking horrible offensive worthless movie. And I say that as a big fan of the original. This one literally has building-bombing terrorists who trained in Afghanistan as its heroes and the big mean ol' United States as the villain. Somehow surrounding a story about the Japanese government killing teenagers. It makes zero sense, craps all over the first film, and literally praises 9/11.

  2. I am generally a fan of sci-fi and especially cyberpunk, and so I wanted to enjoy this film. I usually don't like horror films, though, because I find them pointless. Why is this film a masterpiece? Is it the phalli? The beginning is terribly dull. Then people are murdered one-by-one. A masterpiece should change the way I view life.

    Why do you find horror movies pointless? If you don't like them, you won't like Alien, because its single primary goal is to scare the audience shitless. I think it's one of the more tense and claustrophobic things I've ever seen, one of the few films that have legitimately scared me. Plus, bonus points for being the rare sci-fi movie which even attempts to flirt with realism, instead of the usual Star Wars/Star Trek shiny silver spaceships and aliens and lasers and shit.

  3. Alien (5/10) is a dull cyberpunk/sci-fi film that is overrated because of the chestburster scene.

    Aw, fuck you. I haven't felt strongly enough about much else you've posted recently to bother replying, but I will fite U poser over this motherfucking cinematic masterpiece. Almost as good as its sequel Aliens. Almost.

  4. Look at the WWE roster and name a time when the WWE roster was as young as it is right now. You wont be able to do it because the answer is never.

    Wrong. There's only one main eventer in the company who is under 30, Randy Orton, and he's 29. Unless you count a guy like CM Punk as a "main eventer", who did a clean job in his hometown in the opening match, or Jack Swagger, who didn't even defend his "world championship" on PPV half the time. The top echelon of main eventers have an older average age now than they did in the Attitude era or the early Hulkamania era, that's just fact.

  5. Yes it has. Jericho vs. Batista.

    My mistake... forgot about that and remembered the stat going into that match.

    There's a few other examples which kinda sorta apply. Like, if the Elimination Chamber counts as a cage, there have been multiple title changes inside that. Edge's second MITB title win happened inside a cage. One of the three matches where HHH beat Shawn Michaels for the title at Armageddon '02 was a cage match. Jericho/Batista is the only time that the world championship has changed hands in a cage which was an ordinary match in a traditional cage under standard rules.

  6. I've seen that there was another ending attached to the film in which Wade (Reynolds) walks to the rubble that was left after Logan / XI fight and see's the lone head. Picking it up he looks it over and says: "Who are you supposed to be?" ..leaving it open that XI wasn't Deadpool all along and more along the lines of a clone.

    I keep seeing that rumor mentioned, but I don't think I've actually heard from anyone who saw it themselves.

  7. He does, but it was an ability that was Frankensteined onto him, he's not a natural mutant.


    If anyone wants to see an example of a screen-adapted Deadpool done absolutely right, check out the Hulk vs. Wolverine cartoon. That's the character's comic personality done to a T.

  8. Is there any real competition coming in the next little while?

    Star Trek. Next week.


    I don't understand how anyone could not have problems with Deadpool in this movie, unless you're just not a fan of the comic character. Because the guy in this movie isn't Deadpool at all, he's a completely different person with completely different powers, look, and origin who just happens to have that name slapped onto him. He's nothing like the comic character. He's not even the only one, several of the others in the movie are fucked up just as badly, but Deadpool is easily the most popular and obviously the one they stuck in there the most just to suck up to the fanboys crowd. It's kinda like how Batman and Robin gave us that godawful thing which claimed to be Bane, or how Spider-Man 3 fucked over everyone who was a Venom fan. The studio forced those characters into the movie for no reason other than they heard "hey, those comic kids sure love Deadpool/Bane/Venom a lot, so make sure he's in our next film!" and then the filmmakers either didn't know or didn't care who the fuck those characters were or what their defining attributes consisted of. In the comics, Deadpool is not a mutant, he's got cancer, he's a gleeful motormouthed sociopath, and he knows he's in a comic book. The guy in the movie is... none of that.

  9. Deadpool was portrayed fine. Yeah they took a bit of a spin with the character but it works when you think about it. We all know Deadpool under the mask looks pretty much like shit due to all the damage he's taken in fights and also because his cancer. If there happens to be a spin off, they can use what happen in Wolverine to explain why he looks that way without saying he's had cancer for years.

    Dude, no. What they did to that guy was total character assassination. They should've called him by a completely different name, since it in no way was the character who goes by that name in the comics.



    They'll have to explain why he can't shoot laser beams out of his eyes or teleport anymore but still has his healing powers but they can now explain his look a lot easier now.

    What?! No, this is NOT easier. "I have cancer. It's made me ugly." Presto, explanation over! And exactly how would he lose all those powers and regain the ability to speak? Yeah, I know there's some bullshit technobabble way to explain anything, but it'll still be a stretch. Also, if they're doing a Deadpool movie, the studio simply will not allow the guy to look like that for the entire movie. Regardless of the fact that the fanboys pay money to see the masked superheroes, the studios think that the audience really wants to see Tobey Maguire's face, so they use any excuse possible to take Spidey's mask off at the drop of a hat. They won't greenlight an entire movie starring Ryan Reynolds with him either hidden under a mask or under layers of prosthetic makeup throughout the entire film.

  10. Having played both those games a million times in my youth, I'm almost ready to call Shenaniganz~! on those videos.


    -The Maniac Mansion one seemed to have several moments where you ran into various people who should've stopped, captured, and/or killed you (Nurse Edna, both Tentacles, and the Meteor) yet you just walked right past them and nothing happened. How the hell does that work? Was it a glitch? Taking advantage of glitches doesn't seem like a fair way to do a speed run.


    -Meanwhile, there were several moments when I outright gasped at the crazy John Woo shit you were pulling in Ghosts and Goblins. That's one of the hardest games ever made. I mean, HARD. Whoever designed I Wanna Be The Guy probably jerks off at night to Ghosts and Goblins. Yet you just calmly traipsed through it like it ain't no thang, dodging shit with the casual attitude of a martial arts master beating up a room full of white belts. And doing half of it with the goddamned TORCH as your weapon, no less. However, there were a few moments where it looked like you totally ran right into a monster, and it either passed right through you or exploded on contact. I especially remember the Dragon boss as requiring a hell of a lot more than just four hits to defeat. Wassupwidat?

  11. I dunno, "Kill her, baby" is rather close to "Kill her, mommy", and the idea of the giant masked killer having hallucinations about his mother telling him to kill people is awfully familiar too.


    Not sure how to feel about this one. I liked Zombie's first Halloween, but it felt like he pretty thoroughly explored all the new things he wanted to do with Michael Myers in that movie. What else is left to do? Especially how the more-human version of Myers sure did seem dead at the end of that one, as did Dr. Loomis, but here they are inexplicably back again. Aside from apparently having Laurie dream the "Michael invades the hospital" plot of the original Halloween 2 as part of an extended fakeout, nothing in this trailer looked too good.

  12. So has cole gotton better or worse since his 2000 "Heydays".


    Wait what am I thinking there is no better with Cole.

    Folks from other countries, who didn't grow up speaking English naturally, might wonder if there's something about Michael Cole which they're missing due to issues of misunderstood translation or subtle cultural nuances. To which I say: no. He's just as big a dumbass to us as he is to you. He's improved in some ways since his awful early runs around 1999, but gotten worse in others, so the overall gain is zero.

  13. But it wasn't pictures of that girl, it was pictures of some different chick who had a webcam.


    Then again, Leena also claimed to have been the webcam chick at least once even after the big reveal, saying something about how part of her master takeover plan was to increase hits on the webcam site.


    And yeah, most of her IP addresses did come from Buffalo, and when asked about it (after claiming to have been in Arizona for a long time) she said that wherever she lived wasn't my business.


    In short, Leena has put forth so many different versions of her life story that basically by now I assume that nothing she ever says about her/him/itself is ever going to be the truth.
