Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Dave Chappelle Collection
« on: March 22, 2017, 08:51:23 PM »

I've thusfar only seen the first special, but if it's any indication of where the collection is going he's definitely earning his $60M.  He's so honest and so edifying while do some real edgy material at times.  He's now officially an old-school/throwback comedian and he's not afraid to occupy that cultural space.  Nobody does it better than King Dave.

Well... that was the second best movie of the year so far.  Gritty, intensely violent thriller that delivers exactly what the audience came for.  How would you react if this scenario played out at your office?

Article: Report: Director Tim Miller Quits Deadpool 2 Over Issues With Ryan Reynolds (Update)

Deadline is reporting that Deadpool director Tim Miller is leaving the sequel over a series of creative differences with star Ryan Reynolds. Variety confirmed the news with its own source. Miller hadn’t signed a formal deal for the next film in Fox’s franchise, based on the Marvel comic, but he was reportedly working on the script and getting things moving for the planned 2018 release.

Update: According to The Wrap, the pair parted ways because Miller wanted the second film to be more stylized, while Reynolds (a producer on both films) wanted to keep the raunchy, fourth-wall-breaking comedy approach that made the first film such a success. Their conflict reportedly came to a head with the rumored casting of Kyle Chandler as Cable. Chandler was Miller’s choice, but Reynolds didn’t want him for the part, and the studio ended up siding with the star- partially because his renegotiated contract includes casting approval.

Chandler would've been PERFECT!!!  I'm officially calling for a boycott of this movie and any property Reynolds is associated with from here on.  He's officially gone full retard!


This guy makes some interesting points.  Crossfitters can do the OP Man's work out, but they're juiced up like Jack Lalanne.  Do you guys think the OP Man's workout is realistic/effective?  Can you do it?

Yes, he quite obviously is!  Now let's work backwards from the answer.  The point of a match is tell a compelling and entertaining story of conflict and triumph.  "But what's your motivation?" That's the standard refrain of anyone watching your standard WWE shitshow match.  Why are these two people fighting?  What are the stakes, and why should I care?  Occasionally you'll have a Ric Flair retirement match which provides a sufficiently effective hook, but the vast majority of matches are literally time-fillers.

Now when you're dealing with worked fights, the story is everything; therefore, if you can't construct some semblance of a narrative requiring this fight to take place it runs the risk of falling flat.  The Cruiserweight Classic had compelling stakes which is why the emotional investment was so real, and the payoff when Hunter comes out is so significant.

Pro wrestling promotions are required to either create the perception of these stakes or entertain you with some unique attraction.  Unfortunately WWE lacks the creativity or the vision to give you anything that really builds up a match and develops the ongoing saga taken place between the combatants.  Bayley/Sasha Banks in Brooklyn isn't walking through that door!

Fortunately for all of us I knew Matt Hardy would come.  Matt Hardy is single-handedly masterminding the most creative and involved productions in the history of the business, PERIOD!!!  Now I knew he was an evil genius when he literally forced Vince to feature him when he committed to attacking Edge at every opportunity, but now he's literally constructed, not a kayfabe persona, but in fact a whole kayfabe parallel universe in which he can bring other workers and craft compelling storylines.  Broken Matt is almost out of place in the arena, because his Broken brilliance can't flourish in the confines of the ring.

This reminds me of when Undertaker fought Mankind in a dungeon.  Mankind was able to get his character over so well that the ridiculous idea actually turned out to be the more plausible alternative.  That was a more compelling match than their steel cage match wherein Mick tried to commit suicide on PPV just to get the match over.  The match wasn't as compelling as it was when the kayfabe was used to manifest an alternate reality in which the persona became real and kayfabe no longer existed.  THAT'S the sweet spot! 

That brings me to Broken Matt's recent production: DELETE or DECAY.  I basically ignore TNA (and pro wrestling in general for that matter), but when I watched the epic that was DoD the direction was so good that it sold the menace and threat of Rosemary's intentions, and got her motivations over extremely well. 

Furthermore, Matt Hardy is the single funniest pro wrestler going right now.  He's doing training camps with a Kangaroo and getting advice from Giraffes.  Brilliant!  He's so committed to getting his storyline over and never shortchanges on the selling and embodying the Broken brilliance.

The result is a production that created a legit conflict with  well-earned tension and credibility.  Prior in-ring promos were irrelevant, because the "keep it simple stupid" plot is clearly spelled out in ominous terms from the outset via Señor Benjamin.  So many different cool horror elements combined with the callbacks from Final Deletion made this the best thing in pro wrestling in the last few years.  I challenge you to provide evidence to the contrary.

ICT / Imperial Arms Race: Incursion vs Murasame
« on: September 04, 2016, 04:28:24 PM »
Which is better?

Which would you rather have?

Due to its origins as the Danger Beast Tyrant, Incursio possesses an aptitude for adaptation and evolution. Aside from its standard capabilities, it continues to evolve as the result of battles against several opponents, gaining new forms and abilities as time goes on. Due to being a full body-armor, Incursio has a near-indestructible defense with the only thing able to pierce it being other Teigu. The armor also greatly enhances the user's physical abilities such as speed, strength and agility. The users of Incursio are also able to wield a long spear or halberd-like weapon called "Neuntote", which is capable of cutting through Danger Beasts with ease.

Murasame is a cursed blade that can kill a person with only one cut. Once the sword pierces skin, a poisonous curse spreads into the victim, killing them within seconds. Akame states that cleaning this weapon is very dangerous because of this ability. However, this ability only works on living, organic beings that have a heart, rendering it ineffective against Armor and Biological-type Teigu as well as machines and Yatsufusa's corpse dolls.

Based on this footage?



It's time to settle this once and for all.  As far as quality, scope, relevance, and entertainment value there are few shows that rival FMA:B; however, my question is are there ANY shows that rival it?  Is there another animated series that from bell to bell is as compelling, exiting, creative and perfectly paced as this series.  I contend that in it's totality it is the single most rewatchable animated series ever created. 

Justice League featured some incredible storytelling, with the 2-episode mini-arcs being the perfect format for TV.  Stories had time to develop tension and gravity, but the story progressed quickly without getting bogged down with filler (unlike JLU).  Along with an epic finally, JL is up there for sure.

Avatar: The Last Airbender arguably contains the single best SEASON of animated programming (Season 3), with the second half of season 3 being comparable/superior to the CADMUS arc. 

Legend of Korra also has one of the better season of all time, with the season 1 finally actually giving me chills.  If not for the weak season 2, Korra would likely be above FMA:B, but unfortunately I can't say I could sit and watch Korra again and again THROUGH season 2.  I'd have to skip it.

Now I know what everyone is saying: season 1 of Attack on Titan is the greatest season of anything EVER!  Sure, but it's only ONE SEASON, which is not enough to put it above a series that gives you a complete cohesive story line and conclusion.

Showcase of the Immortals / Conor McGregor WTFPWNS the WWE!!!

Conor McGregor called all the WWE wrestlers "a bunch of messed up pussies" and tons of fun was had by all, including Ric Flair accusing him of stealing his gimmick and Roman Reigns saying Conor was the size of his leg (which one?).
