TV/Film & Literature / Santa Clarita Diet
« on: February 05, 2017, 10:59:48 PM »
Anybody else watching this?

Plot (per IMDB):
Sheila and Joel, a married couple, are real estate agents in Santa Clarita, California. When Sheila dies, their lives take a dark turn.

There's a lot of Raimi influence in the splatter department, the cast is great, and applying sitcom tropes to the situation works. Also, I'm convinced Drew Barrymore has chemistry with everybody on the planet, because her and Olyphant feel like an actual couple.

After a little convincing from my roommate's nephews, I've picked up D&D. Why I mocked it for so many years is apparent, but now I feel guilty for doing so because holy shit it's so much fun. I've only played it once and I'm hooked.

We're all nerds here. Let's talk about rolling some crits and slaying dragons.

I know there's a few people who post here that either do some sort of work in film/TV (CD'er does accounting for movies, I believe, and SFH worked with his friend on a short film), so now we have a thread to talk about it all.

I have an audition for a short horror film this Friday night, and I need to deliver a monologue. I'm looking to get the role of a serial killer (shock!), so I'm looking for a good monologue to go in with. I'm leaning toward Quint's USS Indianapolis speech from Jaws right now, but I'm also trying to find a good monologue from a serial killer role, but I don't want to do Hannibal Lecter. Anybody have a good suggestion?

It’s happening! Classic Misfits members Glenn Danzig, Jerry Only and Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein are reuniting for two festival shows this year!

Next to Guns N’ Roses, a Misfits reunion was thought of as the most unlikely to ever happen due to bad blood and lawsuits between classic bandmates. But for the first time since 1983, vocalist Glenn Danzig, bassist Jerry Only and guitarist Doyle will all share the stage together at Riot Fest Denver and Riot Fest Chicago under the moniker The Original Misfits.

Riot Fest Denver will be held on Sept. 2-4 while Riot Fest Chicago will take place Sept. 16-18. The Original Misfits’ slot hasn’t been revealed yet, but the announcement is expected to hit shortly.

Back in 2014, we spoke with Doyle about the possibility of a reunion. “I’m ready right now,” Doyle said. “I’m dressed, let’s do it. Those guys? Just gotta talk to ‘em. I’ve started talking to them. Everything’s got to be ironed out.”

Later in the year, we caught up with Jerry Only, getting his take on a potential reunion as well. “All the money in the world ain’t gonna make me sell out my fans,” Only said. “What I feel is that, I’d rather be where I am and be happy and be a positive influence than to be the richest man in the world and miserable and be a scumbag to the kids that follow us. I’m not doing that. I told Doyle that. I told him, ‘Hey look, if Glenn wants to come be a team player and leave that s–t at home, we’re good.’ That’s the name of the game.”

Tickets for Riot Fest Denver and Chicago are both available right now. To grab passes, click here. Full lineups for each festival are expected to be announced shortly.

TV/Film & Literature / TURBO KID
« on: February 16, 2016, 04:57:16 AM »




Plot:
Quote
In a post-apocalyptic wasteland, a comic book fan dons the persona of his favourite hero to save his enthusiastic friend and fight a tyrannical overlord.

I'm still in shock and awe over this movie. The first time I watched it was February 3 and I've since watched it three more times. This is one of those movies that reminds me of the low-budget favorites I'd rent as a kid, the movies that didn't have the distribution to become huge blockbusters so they upped the gore to appeal to the underground horror market. This has something most movies don't, even ones that are technically better, and that is a steaming pile of heart.

I unabashedly love this movie. The cast is perfect, the world feels lived in like so few others of this trope do, and it moves at such a brisk pace that the 93 minutes feels like 5. This is what Kung Fury wishes it could have been, what Hobo With a Shotgun almost was: a perfect love-letter to the crazy schlock of '80s b-grade cinema that outclasses nearly everything it serves as an homage to.

This is to Mad Max and Escape From New York what Shaun of the Dead is to Romero's classics. It barely pokes fun and understands the style better than almost any other attempt by others and features a cast clearly having so much fun in their roles that they take the absurd and make it work against all odds.

I fucking love this movie. You will fucking love this movie. NOW GO WATCH THE FUCKING MOVIE.

TV/Film & Literature / Favorite Alan Rickman roles
« on: January 13, 2016, 11:22:42 PM »
Alan Rickman passed away this morning surrounded by his friends and family (odd how that seems to be the way for everyone) after a battle with cancer. Let's talk about his work and why we were all lucky to have been able to watch his work.

You like Hans Gruber? Think Snape is great? Love his voice work as Marvin the depressed robot? Good. Talk about it here.

I think Rickman's most overlooked role is Alexander "Dr. Lazarus" Dane from Galaxy Quest. There was a level of authenticity he brought to it that the rest of the cast, save for maybe Sam Rockwell, couldn't match as the classically trained Shakespearean actor best known for a cheesy sci-fi role, a level of tired bitterness that helps him steal every scene he's a part of. It's such a weird role to really remember right away, but I'm immediately drawn to it instead of his more popular characters.

I sleep to a playlist of live concert footage. I woke up this morning around 3:30 to Motörhead's Everything Louder Than Everyone Else and watched it in full. Eerie given how rarely that footage actually comes up on that playlist.

1. How did we not have a thread for this?!

2. Go see it. It's a family friendly(ish) Christmas version of Evil Dead that has some great practical effects, hilariously terrifying designs, and a plot that keeps turning off course from what you expect in the best of ways. It dies down a little in the third act but doesn't fall off a cliff by any means, and it's all the right kind of tongue-in-cheek humor (meaning it's over the top but the cast plays it perfectly straight).

4/5, definitely looking forward to getting some of the inevitable merch for this instant cult classic.

Wrestling / Grappling in the UK
« on: December 03, 2015, 06:10:31 AM »
I don't feel right extolling the greatness of ICW and Progress in the Indy Compendium (which, really, should be primarily about smaller indies), so why not a catch-all thread for all things UK wrestling? Between the two companies I brought up, old World of Sport stuff, FWA from a decade ago, or RevPro and others, the UK's had quite a scene going, and I'd argue it currently has the best scene in the world.

So let's talk grapplin', chaps.

TV/Film & Literature / Movies you think should be remade
« on: October 05, 2015, 12:23:12 PM »
I watched Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer for the first time since high school this weekend and started thinking about movies that actually could use a remake. Either because of budget limitations or maybe there's a solid core story that just needs to be elaborated, poor direction, etc. Less cult classics with actual fanbases, not iconic movies of the past, but stuff that could actually use a legitimate second (or maybe even more) try on.

There's this piece of late '80s direct-to-video sci-fi schlock called Arena, and I remember absolutely loving it when I was a kid. I'd rent it and watch it every now and then, enjoying the sort of "Rocky with aliens and hints of the original Rollerball" feel to it, and I think that a decent little sci-fi/action flick could be made with the right crew. It would still be campy and a little silly, but put some actual talent and experience behind it and it could be really interesting.

In a similar vein, Robot Jox and Monolith could both be easily turned into something fresh and new without getting a huge uproar from the internet fanboys since they don't really exist for these movies, but there's still enough there (mech combat for sport in Robot Jox, a violent alien conspiracy movie that predates the X-Files in Monolith) that an audience could come to see.

In other news, I've decided to go back and watch all those shitty sci-fi movies I loved when I was a young'un.

Wrestling / Kayfabe explanations
« on: August 05, 2015, 02:05:41 AM »
Wait. So Liz turned the lights off so Sabu could come out?
This got me to thinking of little things that would be a nice little detail added to shows here and there, just minute logical points to make sense of things that are commonplace in wrestling.

Like, who turns off the lights when Undertaker/Sabu/whoever is making their surprise entrance/return? Are they hijacking the light controls themselves? Is it a stage hand that sees them making their way toward the ring and go "hey, I need to turn the lights off"? Ditto random entrance music.

Let's say there's a roaming camera guy backstage (or a few of them) looking to catch something interesting. After the mystery reveal/return, footage is released (maybe even just a few seconds) of Sabu running to Gorilla and Fonzie screaming at the guys to turn the lights off.

Kayfabe explanations of things that, in reality, are just "it fits the script" but wouldn't happen in a legitimate contest. Go!

Take Destiny, remove the annoying level-grinding, blend it with Diablo, and then cover with a Starship Troopers motif and voila: HELLDIVERS. The leveling-up feels earned and natural and you can progress through the more difficult missions/planets at your own pace. Friendly fire happens and is less aggravating than most games.

This is going to go down as one of my favorite games ever with great ease. For $20 on PSN and the ability to play it on PS3, PS4, and the Vita? It's well worth a download.

I thought there was a thread for this, at least a post with the trailer, but I can't seem to find it.



I fucking loved this movie. I can't even describe the plot right now because I'm just so fulfilled with watching it, but I'll try to do it as spoiler-free as possible.

David is a returning veteran who takes a bus to the hometown of his deceased friend and platoon member to check up on his family. Very early on, it's obvious he's hiding something, but he slowly snakes his way into the lives of his newfound family. He goes to a party with his friend's sister, helps the mother out with the housework, hangs out with the father and listens to his rants about his office, and he even starts protecting the little brother from a group of kids bullying him. Things take a turn at this point, and soon we're left trying to figure out who David is, why he's really here, and is he the reason locals are dying?

Wrestling / TWIW 6/2 - 6/8: Wait, there was a PPV last night?
« on: June 02, 2014, 07:56:31 AM »
From Cageside Seats...

What you need to know

Payback was a bitch, as the saying goes.  And that's a good thing.

What had looked like a glorified episode of Raw still felt like that at times, but most of the big matches delivered in big ways.  It was still weird to have impromptu matches like Bo Dallas vs. Kofi Kingston and Rhodes Brothers vs. Rybaxel, but both continued stories - Kofi has run afoul of The Authority due to some tweets sent out over the weekend, and Cody Rhodes has experienced a crisis of confidence that prompted him to walk away from his team with Goldust - and built a character, in the case of Bo, and credibility, in terms of the heel pairing of Curtis Axel and Ryback.

The other big spot that would of fit right in on USA Network saw Brie Bella quit WWE rather than be used as Stephanie McMahon's pawn.  So Daniel Bryan is still injured, but still holds the WWE World Heavyweight Championship belts.  Steph's face is as red as Kane's outfit, from anger and embarrassment as well as Brie's slap.

Sheamus is still the United States Champion, because the Cesaro Swing is not effective as a finishing move and he's knows how to execute a great small package - because how else should a slobberknocker between two European brawlers end?  Bad News Barrett is still the Intercontinental Champion because his current gimmick is the most over he's been since Nexus, and...have you seen Rob Van Dam wrestle in the last month or so?

Big E pulled out all the stops, and debuted a new singlet to match the giant U.S. flag he's been waving around, but Rusev still CRUSHed.  Paige had her second successful pay-per-view (PPV) title defense in a match that was disappointingly typical of other Divas matches.  But more fans were disappointed by the low-key nature of Foxy's post-match meltdown than the bout itself.

In one of the night's two big showdowns, John Cena brought back-up from tag team champs The Usos to his Last Man Standing match against Bray Wyatt.  Jimmy and Jey helped even the score against The Family, and provide some crowd-pleasing spots - especially with the ever-more-impressive Luke Harper.  John and Bray more than held their own, though.  In the end, to the surprise of few but the outrage of several, Cena Attitude Adjusted Wyatt through a production case and covered him with another to (hopefully) end their beef.

War was promised between The Shield and Evolution, and while it may not have been quite as good as their battle at Extreme Rules last month, it was close.  They upped the brutality, especially in terms of weapons used in the beatdown of Roman Reigns.  But if there was any doubt after the Hounds victory in their first match-up, there could be none from this one, as Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins all lasted to the end of the elimination rules tag match, and celebrated their 3 - 0 victory by posing over Triple H's broken body.

What to look out for

Coming at you LIVE from Indianapolis, Indiana, at 8PM Eastern time on USA Network!

Details will come in throughout the day today about what to expect, as Payback fallout ripples through the WWE Universe and the Raw writers' room.  This is supposed to be the last time we see Dave Bautista's wrestling character, Batista, for a while as he hits the road to promote his Marvel movie-verse character, Drax the Destroyer from the August release Guardians of the Galaxy for the next couple of months.  Will he put The Shield over even more on his way out, or be taken out by The Viper and The Game for being their alliance's "weak link"?

The principal owner of WWE will certainly have a response to the actions of ex-employee Brie Bella.  How will she take out her frustration on the Total Divas star's injured husband?

Will the Wyatts focus shift to the Usos and the tag belts?  Will Alicia Fox make it up to her let down fans with an epic meltdown tonight?

Expect some rematches, and tag matches that act as rematches by putting together singles competitors from Payback, as the company starts the quick turn to their next PPV tonight!

What they should do

Since that sure looked like the death knell for this version of Evolution, or at least the Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista version of it, anyway, the question becomes...what's next for The Shield?  There aren't exactly a bunch of strong heel teams or stables that are ready to step up to a trio that has just been capital-M made like few pro wrestlers ever have before.

The other stable currently active (not counting 3MB...sorry fellas) is The Wyatts, but (1) we've been there recently and (2) Bray and company need to do some winning coming off their dance with John Cena.

Other options would be to add some fresh blood to Evolution, or create a new faction whole cloth.  The problem with both so few heels outside of Evolution and The Wyatts would seem like credible opponents, given their recent histories.

An allegiance of Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger and Alberto Del Rio as former World Heavyweight Champions sounds good on paper, but we've watched all three men spend the better part of the past year as glorified jobbers.  Same problem with the oft-rumored plans to put Ziggy, Miz and Damien Sandow in a crew motivated by being disrespected by WWE.  Both groups would have a good motivation for going after The Shield - jealousy due to Ambrose, Reigns and Rollins getting opportunties that they feel should have gone to them - but I don't see how fans would take them seriously, especially with the men in black just having dismantled Evolution.

Same problem with adding someone to Triple H's crew.  Barrett or Cesaro would make sense in terms of where they are in their careers, but their current gimmicks don't fit.  Anyone else isn't at a level that would seem like a replacement or even an upgrade for the departing Batista.

Unless they're willing to pull the trigger on a Sheamus turn (and they should at least consider it...Bryan will be back before too long and this issue exists due to a lack of credible full-time heels), the best path is probably to continue the current program with Hunter down a man by shifting the focus on to the much-predicted Triple H vs. Reigns match for SummerSlam.

Perhaps the other Hounds can decide to pursue singles gold while watching the Big Dog's back?  Ambrose vs. Barrett could be a blast, and maybe The Celtic Warrior could become a heel on his own without being affiliated with Steph, Trips and company for a program with Rollins?

Getting to the next big money three-on-three feud for The Shield is going to take some doing, so if we want to hold off the break-up rumor throught the Summer, Creative may need to throw a bunch of stuff at the wall and see what sticks.

Oh holy FUCK is Texas Chainsaw 3D terrible. Every 30 seconds lowers the bar for stupidity on each and every single character's part, the gore is practically non-existent (which would be fine if it had the tension of the first one, but that's not there in any way, shape, or form), the acting is terrible, and...hey, you know, if the original takes place in the 70's, and this is supposed to be a direct sequel to it, then why the FUCK is the main character not in her late 30's at the youngest? She looks and acts as if she's all of 24 or so, people are throwing out iPhones late into it...

No. Just...just no. I can enjoy Next Generation for how over-the-top terrible it is, and even enjoyed Matthew McConaughey's performance in it (he hams it up nice and good), but this one has fucking NOTHING. The worst Leatherface yet (think about that), the worst cast yet, and the "big star" of it - Bill Moseley - is seriously in it for all of 3 minutes.

FUCK. THIS. MOVIE.

I saw this trailer before the Evil Dead remake and before Lords of Salem Friday night and this looks to be pretty fucking good. It's written/directed by James DeMonaco, who also wrote The Negotiator and the remake for Assault on Precinct 13, both of which I think are pretty damn good (with Assault being one of my preferred remakes, one I find better than the original).

Ethan Hawke is finally finding his real groove in genre pictures and he is RUNNING with it. Good for him.

A look at the lives of Pete and Debbie a few years after the events of Knocked Up.

Also starring:
Megan Fox, Jason Segel (reprising his role from Knocked Up), John Lithgow, Albert Brooks, and the same children playing their daughters (AKA Judd Apatow/Leslie Mann's actual daughters).

This could be decent if it avoids the horribleness of Funny People and focuses on what made Knocked Up and 40-Year-Old Virgin work.

« on: June 08, 2012, 05:12:34 AM »
Since I'm on a big Aliens kick right now in anticipation of Prometheus, I figured I'd make this topic...for obvious reasons, I guess.





Release date:
February 13, 2013

Plot:
The story is told through the eyes of Corporal Christopher Winter, a Colonial Marine that is part of a search and rescue team sent to investigate the U.S.S. Sulaco in search of Ellen Ripley, Corporal Dwayne Hicks, and the rest of the missing marines who were dispatched to LV-426. The Sulaco, and the derelict alien spacecraft from Alien as well as LV-426 itself will all serve as environments in the game, as well as other locations yet to be detailed. Gearbox has stated that they were invited to speak with Ridley Scott and view the script for his Alien prequel Prometheus, insinuating that there may be connections or references to the events of Prometheus in Aliens: Colonial Marines.

Multiplayer:
4 players at once through a co-op campaign, plus the expected multiplayer features (deathmatch and whatnot).

Yep. RoboCop is the next classic to get the reboot treatment. It'll be headed by Elite Squad director Jose Padilha and will star The Killing's Joel Kinnaman and GARY FUCKING OLDMAN.

Jose Padilha talks RoboCop
Quote
Director José Padilha will be bringing RoboCop back to the big screen and while that may give some fans pause, his Elite Squad movies have been met with acclaim and I’m willing to give him a chance.  He recently spoke about what he has planned for the reboot.  First off, he never read any of Darren Aronofsky’s scripts from his planned remake back in 2009.  Padilha says he avoided Aronofsky’s draft because “I wanted to focus on my own thing and do my take, even though Aronofsky is a genius.”

So what is Padilha’s take on the material?  Hit the jump to find out as well as Padilha’s response to recent casting rumors.

Padilha tells IFC:

Quote
RoboCop’ is a brilliant premise because the character is not a super-hero,” he said. “He’s a man who’s been transformed by technology for certain purposes. And so that premise alone touches so many interesting subjects. What does it mean to be immersed in automated systems and deprived of free will? What does it mean to be used by corporations for certain purposes? How does the media spin things around to make certain interests accepted by the public? Those are all things you can see in the first ‘RoboCop,’ and those are all things that are coming closer and closer to being real. Science is taking us there. And so that premise alone is really interesting to me.”

I find it incredibly encouraging that Padilha has picked up on more than the character being a badass and that he understands the brilliant satire in Paul Verhoeven’s original film.  It looks like Padilha wants to build on the ideas introduced by the original RoboCop so now the question becomes, “How does he do that?”

Padilha gave a bit more detail on his plan to The Playlist:

Quote
“I think the media needs a little criticizing now, as it did in the ‘80s, don’t you? Just look at what happened in the Bush era with the lack of criticism we’ve seen from most of it at the beginning of the Iraq invasion, and the sort of patriotic approach of the media that you couldn’t say anything against it. It’s high time we got a little acid criticism of that in my film – in ‘RoboCop’”

As for the rumor that Padilha is meeting with Michael Fassbender for the lead role, the director explains that it was a single quote that got blown way out of proportion:

Quote
“I said I don’t know, and after the guy asked the same question like ten times, I said, ‘there’s so many great new actors in American films, like Michael Fassbender, Chris Pine [who was once rumored to be on the top of the ‘RoboCop’ wishlist], and so on.’ And all of a sudden I’ve called Fassbender out, but we haven’t even discussed this film. But it’s true – he’s a great actor. But they’re all great actors. So it’s from one sentence in one interview with a Dutch guy,” he said with a shrug.

Finally, Padilha doesn’t know when he’ll be shooting (although he tells The Playlist that he’ll know in about ten days), but he tells IFC that he’ll keep the remake set in Detroit and it sounds like they’ll be shooting there as well.

The Toxic Avenger 5: The Toxic Twins is, apparently, in production right now, despite very little info available for it. Here's the teaser poster:


Here's a pair of photos from what looks to be either the planning stages or on the set:



And the plot, straight from Lloyd Kaufman himself:
Quote
Unlike Superman, who never seems to age, Toxie gets older with each movie. In The Toxic Avenger Parts II-IV, he has gotten married and had children. Now he’ll have to deal with his wife’s menopause, his erectile dysfunction—which is a constant erection—and his rebellious kid. We’re on to the next generation, like Star Trek. We’ll see a little of Toxie’s twins in kindergarten, and then as teenagers. The son is rebellious, while the daughter is ultra-politically correct. We’ll show her going through puberty, which should be the most colorful monthly cycle ever put on film! We want to focus on the father/child relationship, and the generation gap. There is also a villain who wants to rename Tromaville Scheisseville, and Fangoria and other independent media will be prominently featured!

After how brilliantly horrible Citizen Toxie was and the consistent rumors of a PG-13 remake of The Toxic Avenger being made, I'm excited for this. I don't care much for the re-design of Toxie, though, but that's because I loved the more "gritty" look from Citizen Toxie than I do the more streamlined looked from the (fucking horrible) second and third flicks. It at least looks better than the one-piece mask from the second and third flicks, though, and about on par with the Toxie look from The Toxic Avenger: The Musical.

Wrestling / Brodus Clay discussion
« on: April 16, 2012, 09:38:45 AM »
Uhhh...he said Clay wasn't credible because he's nothing remotely impressive. He said he hasn't seen Husky's work and can't form an opinion on it.

Games, Tech & Toys / TECH QUESTION: Converting VHS to DVD
« on: April 12, 2012, 12:23:24 PM »
This past Christmas, my parents bought me the Sony DVDirect VRD-MC6. It's a portable DVD burner that (allegedly) allows one to burn DVDs of camera files (photos/videos), computer files, and directly from a VCR. I was bought this due to my vast collection of taped-from-PPV wrestling tapes as a means of cleaning up some space.

It doesn't fucking work.

I've looked up troubleshooting tips for it, I've read through the manual a dozen times, and I've even attempted to use a TV as a midpoint. Nada. Whenever I connect my VCR it allows to view playback but won't let me record, giving me the "NO INPUT FOUND" screen.

So...any advice on how to just rip from my VCR to my laptop so I can do it that way? This device fucking blows.

Wrestling / Matches you'd give the full 5
« on: April 09, 2012, 11:56:15 PM »
Since we have a thread for the absolute worst, let's focus on what we'd consider the best, eh? Videos of full matches, videos of just clips, analysis, whatever.

(I can't find a video of the match or even more than just one clip from it, so this will have to suffice.)

ROH World title: Tyler Black (c) vs. Davey Richards
If ever there were a match to point to as to why people fell in love with Davey Richards (besides his excellent matches with KENTA and Bryan Danielson the year before, not to mention the string of phenomenal bouts alongside Eddie Edwards)? THIS is it. I'm not even a big Tyler Black fan in any sense of the word. Personally, I consider him to be the weakest ROH World champion next to Xavier in terms of all-around performance. This match, however, cemented his worth to me. He was the John Cena of ROH: pushed too hard and for too long (only, in this case, too late), his winning streak was loathed because he routinely went over what the fanbase saw as superior talent. Richards, in this instance, was that superior talent.

The opening moments of the match are insane just based on crowd reaction alone, with Richards instantly garnering fan support (and playing to the crowd as he rightfully should have) and Black showing the contempt he had for it. Basic indy stuff follows with some smooth (and some not-so-smooth) transitions before it all starts to get heated. By the time the halfway point of the match comes? It feels like the bout should be over. It feels like we've reached a point where either man could score the win and the match would have sufficed...

...but it keeps going.

That's probably the single greatest strength about this match: the fact that it continues. It continues on and on until the finish which, while a slight bit anti-climactic, makes perfect sense within the context of the story being told. Richards and Black are giving each other everything they have and then some, but the ROH World title means so much to both of them that neither one will lie down. Black has to run through his finishing arsenal in quick succession to even get a near-fall towards the end and Davey wants to prove he can do it all on his own, ultimately leading to his downfall as Shane Hagadorn tries to interfere on his behalf, distracting Davey, which lets Black get the advantage leading towards the finish.

The fact that Black had to develop a new method of God's Last Gift, his inside cradle bomb, in order to keep Davey down speaks wonders about Davey, and the match, in such a King's Road manner that it's no wonder this was a major highlight for a company known for its great wrestling in 2010.

TV/Film & Literature / Uwe Boll's Movies
« on: April 08, 2012, 11:07:57 PM »
Watched Uwe Boll's Rampage yesterday. It's...it's not that bad, actually. He somehow discovered how to actually make a movie. It's an abhorrently violent film for the sake of violence itself, at times, but it actually has a decent cast and the character legitimately seem fleshed out.

Wrestling / Indy Compendium
« on: April 05, 2012, 10:45:44 PM »
Like the Puro Love & Resources, let's use this thread to talk anything indy (besides just posting pictures of local low-rent workers or Scroby's love for HOODSLAM). PWG, EVOLVE, CZW, Chikara, MAG, DGUSA, PWU, IWA-MS, etc.

To kick it all off, are the EVOLVE shows worth getting into? The more I read up on the company the more it seems like it may just be the kind of company that is really needed right now, at least in regards to Gabe's booking philosophy of making it seem as much like a legitimate sport in presentation as possible.

Also, anybody know where I can get some of the now-defunct Hybrid Wrestling shows, either download or DVD, without going to RF Video?

Wrestling / Top 50 Matches of the Decade
« on: December 30, 2011, 02:49:58 AM »
I'm sitting here at work with the phone not ringing, customers not coming in, and nothing to do worth doing, so I logged into my GoFightLive account and decided to re-watch ROH Best in the World 2011, at least the main event (the solid Richards/Edwards II). This got me to thinking about my pick for MotY for 2011 and how Richards/Edwards II is the only thing I really have running at the moment due to not having fully watched Cena/Punk from MitB (which seems to be the overall favorite for MotY 2011 across the web). Then this got me to thinking of every amazing match we've seen in the last 10 years. Thus? I want to put shit to a fucking vote!

50 matches. THE 50 matches of the decade, from January 1, 2001 to December 31, 2010, the "aughts" decade proper. WWF/WWE, WCW, ECW, TNA, ROH, PWG, CZW, New Japan, All Japan, FMW, DragonGate, CMLL, AAA, and any other promotion you can think of. Let's throw every match we think are must-see events together and compile the TRTSM Approved list.
