Showcase of the Immortals / Backlash 2018

Opened with a red-hot, fantastic match between Rollins and Miz.

Nothing equaled that point.

Although Styles/Nakamura had the best match of their WWE series so far... only to end in a double countout (or whatever it's called when neither guy answers a standing ten count in the ring). What a crap ending to a match that was really great up to that point.

Carmella has legitimately become entertaining as hell as kind of a more obnoxious, low-rent Alexa Bliss.

Fans shat all the hell over Joe/Reigns because Joe was restholding the fuck out of Roman. What an AWFUL main event.

ICT / DCEU Superman vs MCU Thor

Thor gets Stormbreaker.

Do the events of Ragnarok and Infinity War give Thor a chance here?

Instead of Predator tracking Arnold, Jesse, Carl, and the rest, it's Jason. Does he teamwipe them, or do they blow him to kingdom come?

Music, Movies, Tv and Books / We are Venom!

Yeah, okay. That is what I want Venom to look like. Good on you, clip.

Let's say...

Captain Cold
Mirror Master
Weather Wizard
Abra Kadabra


Doc Ock
Green Goblin

A la Kitty Pryde? Or is that specific to her?

ICT / Iron Man vs Lex Luthor

Author in his green and purple armor comes gunning for Tony. How does this go?

Joe Biden claimed he would hypothetically beat the hell out of Trump for the way Trump talks about women (if they were in high school together. What?)

Trump replied that Biden would go down fast and hard, crying all the way, if the former VP assaulted him.

Jesus Christ, I'm waiting for one to offer to buy the other a bus ticket.


Showcase of the Immortals / Ultimate Deletion is tonight!

I'm not going to stay up late enough to watch it, but I'll find it online tomorrow. I hope it's great. Both guys need it.

Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Anyone watching the Oscars?

I mean, I'm not. But maybe it should have a thread.

I've seen I, Tonya and Get Out (literally just came home from the theater to see Get Out, so... just under the wire!), so at least I have two horses in the race.

Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Game Night
« on: February 24, 2018, 02:07:44 PM »
Anybody else see this? With Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams? This was one of the best, smartest comedies I've seen in a while. Had a very "Edgar Wright" kind of vibe to it. I thought it might just be a typical modern comedy, and to a degree it is, but it's extremely clever. I want to see it again to catch some of the jokes I know I missed.

General Comic Discussion / So I guess I started a podcast?
« on: February 24, 2018, 07:58:03 AM »

This is moving a lot faster than I wanted, but my buddy was all "Let's get it started!" one night and created our webpage and put an extremely early and preliminary version out there.

We've been recording every week for several weeks now. Probably have about 6-7 complete shows ready to publish at this point? I wanted to have a lot more than that, but I tend towards having a HUGE queue of things and getting paralyzed by never thinking its enough. So he and I will have to mitigate each other.

Anyway, yeah, we have a comic book podcast and blog now. I figure you assholes will be good for some constructive criticism. Let me know what you think.

Right now, the plan is to do two ~45 minute shows per week of various topics (Current Events, Top Ten List, Weekly Debate/Topic/Versus, Read Pile/Reviews) per show.

ICT / Kratos vs DCEU Superman
« on: February 02, 2018, 10:59:33 PM »
This might be a brutal mismatch, I have no idea and no nothing about God of War. But this was presented at another place, and I was curious. Is Kratos on even DCEU Supes' level (or, hell, is he far above it)? Who are his equivalents if not? I kind of figured that, being a video game character, Kratos can be killed by decent falls or minions if they hit him enough. That doesn't seem top-tier to me.

I might be in the afterglow of having watched a great match, but that wasn't just an early MotY candidate... that is one of the best matches I have ever seen.

Top-to-bottom, Takeover Philly was a great show.

The Authors of Pain have really come into their own and are definitely no longer just a pair of big monsters who look large and get carried. They have proven to be capable of delivering. Solid 4* match against Undisputed Era that told a story.

Velveteen Dream is a character that shouldn't work as well as he does. That kid just has "it". That said, Kassius Ohno is not doing anything for me in NXT; I don't know if he's unmotivated or out of shape or what, but I have yet to see an NXT match from him that meets the heights of what I have heard about from his Chris Hero days. This was the worst match of the night, but it still was a solid mid card bout because Dream puts his soul into his character work.

Ember Moon vs Shayna Baszler was a match I really wasn't sure about until the end sequence where I was POSITIVE Moon was going to be forced to tap. Baszler came across as a MONSTER who I can see going from just hating because WWE is overbooking her to a heel I could love to hate. She was a fucking asshole all match who seemed like she wanted to murder Moon's whole bloodline. And then Moon won in a bit of veteran desperation and out-thinking. I think the ending made the whole encounter better because the storytelling just worked and got both characters over.

I was disappointed we did not end up getting the Killian Dane/Lars Sullivan match I thought I saw advertised. I am all-in on Dane and wanted to see him defeat Sullivan. I hope Dane is in the Rumble tonight and gets a good run.

Aleister Black is FLYING up the list of guys I love in the modern era. He and Adam Cole (BAY-BAY) had a tremendously fun overbooked car crash of a match. I become more and more excited by the day to see how the main roster will end up ruining Black.

And then, yeah, Gargano vs Almas. If you had told me a year ago that Andrade Almas would be in a match I might put in my top 20 all time, I'd have laughed at you, but god has he improved dramatically since they paired him with Vega.

I can't believe that NXT manages home run after home run with these Takeover specials. And now for WrestleMania weekend we are possibly gearing up for Black/Almas for the NXT title, Gargano/Ciampa on a bloodfeud, and, what, Undisputed Era vs War Machine? All with EC3, Ricochet, a returning Drew McIntyre, Velveteen Dream, and SaNiTy all waiting in the wings?
