Sophie Lloyd

Daaaaaaamn! She is good. Not your typical "shred fest" for the sake of shredding. There is real meat on the bone here. Great tone too. Oh, and she's hot. Duh. Subbed her channel just now.

Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (2017)


Okay, I watched Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi this past Saturday Night and have been putting off writing any kind of review because I'm conflicted. I honestly don't know what it is about this movie that I just don't want to write anything. I've been letting the movie swirl around in my head the past couple of days just trying to put my finger on what is troubling me about the flick. Does the movie suck like most people have said? Well, it depends on how you look at parts of the movie or character motivations. Would I put this in my Top 3 Star Wars movies? No. Honestly, I think I need to re-watch The Last Jedi again because I'm still not sure what I liked and disliked about this. Something is off for sure. So, yeah, I'll give Jedi another go again and then come back with a review. I'm not even going to give this any Stars right now until after the second viewing.

Ronda Rousey and Kurt Angle Vs. Stephanie McMahon and Triple H (WrestleMania 34, 2018)

So, WrestleMania came and went last night and easily the match of the night was Ronda Rousey. I sh*t you not, she was f*cking amazing. THIS was the match I was looking forward to most and to be honest, I was expecting a train wreck. No one has ever come in from the outside from a different profession and bee able to pull off a seamless transition. There is always that awkward thing that rears its ugly head to tell us such and such just does not belong. Ronda not only did she meet my expectations, which were already low, but she exceeded beyond my wildest dreams. Damn entertaining match. Sit back and enjoy. She has a long career ahead of her in the WWE.

Nita Strauss performs Nakamura's WrestleMania theme: Exclusive, April 8, 2018

One of the coolest moments last night when I was watching WrestleMania was seeing Nita of all people getting a spotlight and blowing the roof off the house. She was f*cking amazing. This was a BIG surprise for me and totally unexpected. I've been searching all day waiting for anyone to post a performance video from last night. So far, nothing. Still waiting. For now, you will have to just be happy with her WrestleMania interview.

Thanks for the heads up. In related news, if you haven't already heard, Lindsey Buckingham was fired from Fleetwood Mac and replaced by Mike Campbell.

Nikki is awesome. He's actually one of the coolest rockstars I've ever met. He actually listens to you when you're having a conversation, which is something that doesn't happen a whole lot with Rockers in general.

Thanks. I'll keep an eye out for it on DVD if and when it drops.

Trailer #2

I'm actually feeling a lot more optimistic about this movie based on this new Trailer. More so than I was after the last Trailer which in itself was good too. The other worthy news of the day is that they intend to premiere the movie at the Cannes Film Festival a full 10 days before it's official release. They must have a lot of confidence in the film to release it that far in advance and not worry about bad press getting out and affecting ticket sales. So, just something to chew on there.

Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
5 Stars out of 5


Not only is Thor: Ragnarok the best Thor movie yet, it's quite possibly my favorite entry in the MCU. Definitely in my Top 3. I think Spider-Man Homecoming is still my all time fave, but Ragnarok is right up there as pure entertainment from start to finish. This is really unlike anything I've seen from any of the other MCU flicks as far as visual style and tone. Stylistically this felt like a movie that was inspired and came direct from all things 80's with its color scheme which I absolutely love. But it was the tone that kind of threw me for a loop. They were really pushing the jokes here....HARD. There was no two ways about it. They were going for laugh out loud moments and they succeeded in Spades. It's not a typical "comedy" that you would expect....but it sure felt like one. There were so many jokes that it was hard to keep up with. This is a movie worth going back for repeat viewings just to get all the things I know I missed the first time around.

Chris Hemsworth is is cool self as Thor and was damn funny. But it was the addition of other characters that really made me take notice. Jeff Goldbum as Grandmaster was vintage Goldblum. Tessa Thompson as Scrapper was a nice addition as well. But Cate Blanchett as Hela is possibly the best Villain ever in the MCU. Yes, she gets "destroyed" at the end. But I fully expect her to pop back up down the road in the future. This is Comics after all. And daaaaamn does Cate look smoking HOT!! But the star of the movie is of course The Hulk. Getting a Hulk that actually carries on conversations in full is what I have been waiting for for years and it delivers in a BIG way. Second best character in the movie is without a doubt Korg. A beast....with a voice like that was and is f*cking priceless!! Highly recommend this as a Buy.

Yes, it's a fantastic interview. I've always said that Vai is one of the very best and most entertaining people to listen to in any interview. He and Dave Grohl are at the very top in that regard.
