King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)


When I first saw the trailer for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, I was intrigued by what I saw, especially when I knew that this was going to be a Guy Ritchie film. This was not going to be the typical Sword and Fantasy flick. This was going to be good and breath new life into the genre. Well, having just watched, struggling to get through it, I was very disappointed in what the final product turned out to be. Maybe there is a reason why traditional is what it is for a reason. Guy is a solid film maker with his unique style and flair. But it doesn't work in this genre. If you've seen any of his previous films, then you're going to recognize his ticks as a film maker, which then in turns just takes you out of the moving going thread you have with what's happening on screen. It's not only his ticks that were too much of a distraction, the story itself was a complete mess with horrible editing choices where you lose huge chunks of plot just to "move things along". Definitely a Skip. 2 Stars out of 5.

Been playing Forza 5, which is good. I prefer the arcade style racing games in GTA instead. Also playing Oxenfree which is f*cking awesome. I'll post my gameplay for that one soon.

Best of Gorilla Monsoon & Bobby The Brain Heenan Prime Time April 25th, 1988

Man, this sucks. It's not unexpected as he has been sick for a long time. But it still sucks that he is gone. He was, is and will always be the GREATEST wrestling manager of all time. Period. He has no equal. He was the consummate showman and knew exactly how to work a crowd into a frenzy. I've been a fan of his for so long, starting from my first foray into wrestling back during the 80's in the WWF/WWE and all the way through his stint in the WCW. This guy was talented in so many ways. Best Manager and one of the greatest Color Commentator's of all time. But more than anything else, Bobby was damn funny. If you want to see someone with comedic timing....just watch any of his skits to see how a master does it. RIP Mr. Heenan. There will be a lot of tributes coming out this week and rightly so. WWE will definitely have a Tribute tomorrow night at the start of RAW. So, I will be looking forward to the video package they put together. I know they will have a great one for the man.

Rare footage of Ronda Rousey just after her loss at UFC 207

Saw the fight when it happened, but I've never seen the overhead shot zeroing in on Ronda as shown in the clip before.

It's been awhile since I've listened to this one. Totally forgot just how damn good the song is. Flea owns this.

Its Electric! Dave Grohl meets Lars Ulrich on Beats 1 [Full Interview]

Two Drum Gods, one Room, endless laughs. This is the best 44 minutes you can have that doesn't involve sex. Funny sh*t from start to finish. This had me laughing pretty much the whole time. You hang on EVERY word that Dave's says. Even Lars has a great story to tell about Bono and Edge.

Orphan Black (Season 5 - 2017)

Just spent the last few days binge-watching The Final Season of Orphan Black and I thought it was great, if somewhat predictable. We finally get to see who P.T. Westmoreland is and how everything ties into the Leda's, the Castor's and what the main objective of the series was. As I mentioned in my Season 4 review, I brought up the fact that I was disappointed in the lack of Helena. Well, she's back and plays a big part of the end game here. Still my fave character and I fitting that her and her alone would get my eyes to well up in the last episode. I wont say more than that...but it was pretty damn cool to see where she ends up in the scheme of all of this. I loved the scene at the end (near the end) that had all the Clone Sisters sharing one final scene together. It was pretty touching to see. One last thing, I've said it before and I'll say it again....Tatiana Maslany is one of the greatest Actresses ever and definitely the best in our generation today. Simply put....a tour-de-force performance for 5 Seasons. Highly recommend checking at the swan song season. Definitely worth your time.

Gene Simmons Of KISS Talks About New Box Set Of Unreleased Songs | TODAY

Gene Simmons....the originator of the "Duck Face" needs to stop "dancing" whenever he is introduced on shows like this. I want 1975 Demonic Gene! Bring HIM back! Okay, with that said.....enjoy the show.

I have literally not seen Charisma in anything noteworthy since her small role in Veronica Mars and that was years ago. I crushed hard for her when she was on Buffy. Props for staying in "character" for your shot with Brian. What Con are you at?
